You can bring a third party vendor if they are a guest at the hotel.  That means that you either book a room for three days there and use someone from the island or bring a photographer with you from the US based on their rates for doing destination weddings.  (usually have to pay airfare and room but the package is "free" since you are essentially paying for them to go on vacation and they just have to work for a few hours.) 


Hi Everyone!


I am getting married at The Beaches Turks and Caicos on January 26th, 2013. Dealing with the wedding coordinators feels somewhat blinding. My question for all of you is, what am I getting into?


What are the do's and don't of the resort?


Things you wish you would have done or done better?

What type of cake to get?

Flowers? pricing, good ones, etc?

Previous weather in January?


Also, photography and videography??? I'm so nervous about this.


I saw a girl would had a third party vendor photographer? How is that possible?


Also, how does everyone feel about the videography options?


Please...if anyone has photos of their wedding, if they could send me some, it might ease my mind :) Thanks so much everyone!

    Yep. There's been griping among my friends and my Aunt. Oh well, we don't expect anyone to be able to attend and this is what WE want. It's our second marriage and we're not doing a traditional wedding this time to make others happy and then we live with the regret for not having it at Turks.

    Besides, parents aren't footing the bill this time and we would have to invite probably over 200 people to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. At $80-100 a plate that's not happening. DW is cheaper and more memorable. Honestly I can't recall any traditional wedding that I've attended that left a lasting impression. Been to one you've been them all. Not our thing.

    People will get over it. :)
