Turks and Caicos Bride

Recommended Posts

Hello Kendra! Glad you found this. I can't wait to hear your feedback! It has been so helpful for me!

 

I wanted to do the steel pan player for the ceremony also, but wasn't sure how it would sound? Did they give you an example? The Calypso band... I wanted that too, but wasn't sure if it would get the guests up & dancing? Did they give you any info on this? I did not get any details on these?

 

Thanks undecided.gif

Hi Kim-

 

We just booked them both. We wanted an Island feel, so we went with it... I am sure they will be great.  One thing we changed was the reception. We decided to not book the DJ and bring our Ipod playlist with Portable speakers. We found a great one and the sound is amazing.. We are also giving mini rum bottles as favors since everyone will be partying.  We didnt think the traditional type of favors would make it back to there rooms. LOL...

 

I also went with some ala carte items... We didnt pick a theme package. I bought a bouquet from one package, the frame from another package, went with the beautiful beginnings package for the tables.  We have 39 people total now.  How many will you have at your wedding?

 

The weather isnt looking great come Friday, but it should clear next Thursday, April 7th.  We are getting married on Friday, April 8th.  We moved the date to a Friday so our guests could enjoy there weekend on the Island :)  I hope this helps.  Feel free to ask any questions.  We will be back on 4/18.

HI Ladies-

 

Turks was amazing... Stacey Ann was our coordinator and we LOVED her... The steel pan player was great. We heard alot of great feedback on the Calypso band.  They played during the cocktail hour, but we missed most of it taking pictures.  The photos came out great.  We bought the 200 images on disk for $2000 and I am glad we did that.  I just loaded them onto Kodak.com myself and have shared them with all my guests. They are ordering.

 

We had a Welcome Cocktail party and it was amazing.  We had the jacuzzi location that they blocked off for us that overlooked the ocean.  The appetizers they provided got excellent reviews from everyone.... 

 

We had everyone go to Marios for the rehearsal dinner.  That worked out!

 

I would highly recommend going to Kimonos for dinner ( they require a reservation, so make one when you get there and ask for the singing chef Nigel... Tell them you are getting married and they will make it happen)!!!!!

 

The couples massage and candlelight dinner are WORTH adding onto your package. We did this our lastnight there and it was perfect! 

 

I would HIGHLY recommend bringing OFF for Mosquitos and sand fleas... Trust me people were bit.. They sell it at their stores but its more money.  I put aloe care in every welcome bag and it came in handy..... I hope this helps.. I am so excited for all of you :)  Kendra

It goes so fast, so enjoy! There is a girl Meagan on here who got married at Beaches in May I think, and she is very knowledgeable. Try to search around for her. Good luck!

We actually gave them to our guests before leaving.  We had a send-off cook out party two weeks before we left and gave them.  We also  had T-shirts that we wanted everyone to wear at our welcome dinner.  We used nice bags, so people used them on the plane and at the beach.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
