Floral Boquets @ Beaches Turks

Recommended Posts

I don't think Beaches will let you receive flowers into the resort, but I don't think they could stop you from taking a quick taxi ride about 2 miles away to the Environmental Arts florist shop outside the Graceway IGA Grocery store.  You can contact them via email louise@environmentalarts.tc. 

 

Keep in mind that pretty much all flowers are flown in to the island, so prices will be a lot more than in the US.  We are not a lush tropical island with lots of native plants to choose from (there is a native orchid but it's very small, brown and yellow one...not pretty)  Our national flower is the turks head cactus.  Environmental Arts does some really nice work and will bring in what you want if you decide to go that route.  Just thought I would give you another option if you really do want to do it yourself.

I am a floral designer,,,,if the Martha Stewart boquet are a huge rip off....i may send myself flowers from an island florist (if i can) and rip it apart and make my own boquet the morning of. Do outside florists deliver to Beaches?

 

Thanks!! And if anyone needs flower help/advice/ect....let me know!!!

 I would love to see pics of the gazebo options!!! Should i pmyou my email???

I think my TA is falling down on the job. :  I'd love to see anything you have with resort photos (of wedding sites) and bouquet examples as well.  We're getting married at Beaches on May 21st and plan on having the 3 hours private reception... using the Ipod dock as well rather than a band.  Expect about 24 people.

Thanks for posting those pictures!  It's going to be hard to decide where to have our ceremony!  The beach is absolutely beautiful, but there will be people laying out on the beach during the cermeony.  The gazebos look more private, and provide a little bit of shade, but I don't think the scenery is as pretty.  I am sure I will figure it out all when I arrive! :-)

Have you been to a TA??? I have not booked yet but went and saw my TA and she sent me home with a boatload of info. I do believe everything does look pretty close if not exact to the pics. Remember they are flowers though and sometimes they have to sub something if they cant get it or if it comes in looking crappy. But from the pics of other girls weddings they do seem to look pretty exact. Your TA can give you brouchers that have all the MS themes in them and also a seperate booklet of just bouquets. I have the wedding kit in my email, if you dont have it let me know and i can email it to you. That has all the prices concerning photography, dinner options, and more.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
