Beaches Turks & Caicos- Wedding Time Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I have FINALLY made up my mind and will be getting married at Beaches Turks and Caicos in May 2011 (thanks to this wonderful website and forum!).  The only thing I have left to decide before I book our wedding is the wedding time.  I am thinking 11am, so that it's not too hot outside during the ceremony and it would give our guests the rest of the afternoon to do whatever they want.  Does anyone have any suggestions/advice from their wedding experience?  Thanks!

Hi LaurenMarie!  I, too am a May 2011 Beaches Turks & Caicos Bride!  What date did you pick?  We are getting married at 3pm on May 21st - I had concerns too about the heat, so we will probably get married in a gazebo where there is some tree coverage for our guests. 

 

You will get a lot of GREAT feedback from some of the brides who have been there.  They are super with filling you in on details for anything you need to know.

Hi!  We were married May 7th, @ 3pm on the beach.  It was perfect, with an ocean breeze.  The websites I have been on showed weather in May is a pretty consistent temperature in the mid 80's and did stay true to that during our trip.  We gave out palm tree fans for each guest before the ceremony.   I don't think you could pick a bad time, it all depends on your taste and reception needs.  We had a private reception, poolside french village after and when that ended, we moved the party to another bar on the resort :)  It was an amazing day :)

Thanks ladies!  We're getting married on May 16th, and we chose (today!) to go with 11am for the wedding time; that way we can all go to lunch at a restaurant afterwards then everyone can have the rest of the afternoon to do whatever they want (it's going to be a fairly small ceremony).

 

I was worried about the time of day and having the ceremony outside b/c I was afraid it would be too hot, but I have lived in Florida my whole life and we've had a high temperature of about 100 degrees here the past month!  So I think we will be fine no matter what time of day it is, as long as it's not 100 degrees and humid ...  msnwink.gif

Congratulations and welcome to the forum.  I am also getting married at Beaches Turks & Caicos - April 14, 2011.  My ceremony is 4:00 PM.  We are having a very small wedding, so after the ceremony we are going to have our pictures taken then when we return, we'll have dinner.  I scheduled a 4PM wedding because I really want to have some sunset pictures taken.  Happy planning!

Hi LaurenMarie!! Congrats on picking your date/time!! I'm also a May Beaches T&C bride!! We are getting married at 11am on 5/5/2011. At first I wasn't thrilled with the time, as I really wanted 4pm, but 11 was the only available time remaining when we booked. The more I think about it, the better it might work out (fingers crossed). Hopefully it won't be too hot, and we do have guests with young children, and they aren't the type that would use the babysitting services at the resort, so I'm sure they won't be staying out too late.

 

The only thing I'm trying to figure out is the photography. With the sun so high I'm told (by the photographer) that we may be squinting in the pics and we should do pics later in the day if possible. I just think I'll be hot and sweaty by just hanging out for so many hours before going off site to take pics.......

Also, I meant to ask- Do you all know if we are allowed to write down EVERYTHING the officiant says during the ceremony?  I do not want a long, drawn-out ceremony..I prefer like 2-3 minutes, max!  LOL

 

Is anyone that far in their planning??  Thanks!

Lauren, 

   They do go over that with you when you meet with the resort WC, you can choose what they have or edit it to your own.   I think our ceremony was just under 5minutes :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
