    Hey guys,

    I am planning my sister's wedding and we are having trouble finding the right resort. We do not want the ceremony or reception directly in the sand. Hoping for maybe a gazebo wedding, and then garden or terrace recept that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, but not cheapo either. We were going with the Gran Port due to the kids, proximity to town, and all inclusive, but you have to have your recept in a ballroom or the sand. BUT their wedding packages are such a good value- you get SOOOO much included that a lot of other venues charge extra for- namely the reception, dance floor, flowers, etc. Ovious choice would be the Royal, but my sister really wants to keep the fam together, so since I have a little one- we can't do adults only. Any help would be so appreciated :)

    Also- of those that are doing the reception in the sand- what about guests wearing high-heels? Or does your venue offer some sort of "floor"? Just wondering how other people are doing it- THANK YOU!

      Hello! I was married at beaches turks and caicos! Have you looked into any of those resorts? Family friendly.multiple ceremony and reception options. We were married in a gorgeous gazebo. Just an option. Also try doing a search at the top of the page on the tool bar. There are lots of threads about family friendly resorts! Good luck. Let me know if u have any questions!

        do you care for a venue over the ocean?

        we are not wearing high heels, but sandals, beach sandals.
        we were offered a dancefloor under the tables but i really think our guests are going to love being barefooted. the guys are wearing sandals also!
        Love is in the air! :

            I'm getting married at the Grand Palladium and they have a beautiful garden gazebo and also a catholic chapel if youre interested in that. I have attached a link to a photo album that has some great photos of the garden gazebo and the private reception area.

            The private reception costs anywhere from 50 to 60 dollars per person, depending on the menu you select... so yes, it is an extra cost but well worth it in my opinion! There are some great reviews on this site.

            Also, we will be travelling with many children and we selected this resort because it's very family friendly... I think there is a daycare open until 11pm (and the daycare actually has excellent reviews), there are tons of activities, babysitting services, kids pool and play areas, etc...

            Hope this helps!

              We are going to Moon Palace for all of the reasons that you mentioned: family-friendly, all-inclusive, great wedding packages, multiple wedding gazebos available, and terraces with a view of but not on the beach. Check out the Moon Palace reviews on here. Most have pictures!
