Looking for the best island in the caribbean for a january wedding
Posted 30 June 2010 - 12:31 PM
I am new the forum and need some advice! My fiance and I are planning on getting married January 15, 2011 somewhere in the Caribbean OR the Seychelles or the Maldives. We are wanting to rent a villa (we are having a small destination wedding and a 2nd reception back in California when we return).
I need suggestions as to what people think are the more exclusive and secluded islands (Anguilla, etc.), I would also love to hear stories/suggestions/ideas/destination wedding planner recs as well!
Thanks so much!!!!

Parrot Cay is a small exclusive island in the Turks and Caicos, only accessed by a private boat (provided by the island) from Providenciales (about a 25 minute boat ride). You can rent villas (many of them are owned by the rich and famous). Or you can stay at the boutique resort which additionally caters to the villas. (this was where Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got married)
Here is a link to a recent wedding at one of the villas in Parrot Cay to see the setting:

Amanyara is another exclusive resort on the island of Providenciales. Like Parrot Cay it is private and very exclusive. We get many of the rich and famous at both of the resorts. You can stay in a room, small villa or up to a 4 villa area with it's own pool and wait staff
An idea of Amanyara resort:

We're not as far south as Anguilla, but we find January is still full of tourists! During the horrible cold snap this past February in the US, I think we got to the low 70's in the evenings with 80-85 during the day (possibly higher).
Hope that helps!
