T&C Bands and Hair & Makeup
Posted 27 June 2010 - 06:55 PM
I am new to this site and wish I had found this sooner! I am getting married in Turks and Caicos March 19, 2011 at the Somerset. We took a planning trip back in February and fell in love with the place right away! We are having a pretty large wedding - up to 100 guests. So far we have our photography booked (Andy and Kellie from Tropical Imaging) as well as our band. The band we are using is the Island Boys - has anyone heard of them or know if they are good for weddings? We like cover music, with island "flair" mixed in too. When we were down there we heard a lot about them, but were wondering if there were other bands worth considering... I can't find any websites or information on wedding entertainment.
I've also book my hair/makeup with Shenique - who I hear is amazing. But she's expensive! Just wondering if there are any other wonderful (less expensive) hair/makeup artists that my bridesmaids could use.
My wedding coordinator, Monique was on vacation last week so I'm sure I could just ask her when she gets back, but I figured you guys would be a great resource too!
Thanks so much in advance for your help!

All of them are great and are in demand. Most of them have thriving businesses on island and a real booked following here. So for them to work for weddings they have to justify being away from their regular clients and bookings. I know I book Ann a good 2-3 weeks in advance for pedicures and I usually book April 5-6 weeks in advance. I think you'll probably find their prices very similar (I have also know them to work together for larger bridal parties)
We don't have a huge population here so there aren't huge numbers of wedding entertainers in general. I know the Island boys are a popular band here. Most of the other live entertainers tend to be more "softer" background kind of music vs dancing etc We also have a few DJ's here as well if you want to go that route.
Hope that helps!
