     How far in advance did you have to book to get the 4pm time slot? We are planning a 1/2010 wedding...so it is to early to book our flights to set an exact date b/c we want to get the best deal on airfare and our dates are flexible. We really want that 4pm time slot though, so im wondering if i should book my room sooner to reserve the time. My TA said if we book the room but end up changing the week she can attach that time to the new wedding day. Very confusing and the only source of anxiety for me!

      Who did you guys book your Beaches Turks and Caicos trip through? Did you use a travel agent or online booking engine? I can't seem to find it anywhere on expedia or orbitz. Is going through the Beaches website the only/best way to book it? Just curious.

        Lizzdee, when is your wedding? Your post says 1/2010? We booked our April 2, 2011 wedding in June 2010 and the 4 pm time slot was the only time that had left for that date, so we got lucky bc thats the time I wanted!  So that was 10 months before.

             Whoops! mistype! going for Jan. 2012!!! i cant believe you lucked out like that! im hoping to book the room this dec/ jan...hoping to get the 4pm time slot. I hope we do. I would thin 12 months would be enough time, andwe are also really flexible on dates, so maybe that wil help. We haven't actually set an exact date b/c of airfare....can book airfare til Feb, and we want to get the best deal poss. The time slot is my only worry!

              Oh yeah, I would certainly think 12 months is plenty of time to get your time slot!

                  I'm also getting married at Beaches T&C in May 2011! We finally decided on beaches and eventually narrowed it down to May -- we are waiting to hear back regarding the timeslot; but we've requested 11am because there were no other times available that week other than 9am and 11am.

                   

                  We're just trying to decide on what we can do for our guests in between the reception/dinner - does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking that we'll probably have about 3hrs between the ceremony and the reception....not sure what to do?

                    I went through a Travel Agent I met on this site who is a Sandals/Beches certified specialist.  She's fantastic!

                       Hello!!  I am also getting married at Beaches T&C in May at 11am!  May 21st!  We're going to have the 1 hour private cocktail reception after the ceremony, and that's it!  We figured we'll be all done by 1pm, and then all our guests can enjoy the rest of their day, since a lot of them will be leaving the day after the wedding.  I booked my stay and wedding through a TA that my friend referred to me, and she's been great!  Happy planning!! :)
