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.
