    I decided on Beaches Turks & Caicos for a few reasons.  Originally I was going to have a small casual wedding here at home in NC.  This is a second marriage for both of us, so it was going to be a low-key wedding.  After seeing how much $$$ a small reception was going to cost us, we came to the conclusion that a destination wedding was the best option for us.   I looked into cruise's and all the islands in the Carribean and so many different options.  I was interested in  T&C because I stopped there on a cruise once and was amazed at how beautiful the water was.  So,  I contacted a TA to help us out.  I told her we what we decided we "HAD TO HAVE" - white sand beaches, beautiful water, all -inclusive and most importantly, it had to be kid friendly!!!  (I have an 11 year old daughter).  She totally sold us on Beaches!!  It met all of our wants and needs.

     

    We are planning on having a casual AHR when we get back because unfortunately our friends are not going to be able to join us.  As of right now, only my parents and my daughter are going to be there.

      One reason we chose to do the destination wedding was b/c we didnt want alot of people there!!! I dont want anyone there who doesnt really know me, ya know? That was really important to us. My dad actually said something like he feels cheated b/c of all the weddings of kids of his friends he had to go to and give a gift, and now they wont be able to do the same!!! And that was exactly what i dont want. Its not about the gifts, its about us and the people we love :) So to answer your question, the people that we REALLY want there are totally on board!!! Most say they would never have the chance to go to T&C, andd this is there chance! The only person probably not going is my brother, but hes okay with it since we will have an AHR later in the summer.

            Thank you are so right my fiancee doesn't want a big wedding and he doesn't like too much attention on him and I'm the same way but I have a uncle that's like a father to me and I really would like him to come but I know he can't afford it. I think I may just my family opinion and go from there? Thanks ladies

                      There are a bunch of TAs on this site who are knowledgeable of destination weddings, I would def contact one of them.
