      There were 28 of us all together, and it was no problem getting a reservation for dinner after our cocktail hour. They make it seem like it is risky just so you will book the 3hr dinner. But its really not at all. There are so many places to eat and they are all so accomodating. They even brought our cake back out and served it after dinner for us.


      We had a welcome dinner the night before our wedding on the grass near the small gazebo. It was beautiful. They provide linens and flowers for the tables, and the food was fabulous! When the sun sets it is absolutly beautiful. Our welcome dinner was free because we had booked 10 rooms.


      I hope this helps! :)

        Thank you!  I should have risked it with trying to make a reservation for our "reception" once we got to the resort but I was too nervous.  Glad I didn't book an extra cocktail hour or welcome dinner though!  THANKS!

          Beaches does have sound systems you can use, using either a cd or ipod, they also have music choices for your walk down the isle just your classic wedding songs.

                I also got a virus on my desktop while i was showing my future sister in law their site. Thank goodness I am marrying into a family of computer gurus who can get rid of it for me. I seem to get them once a year. Crazy thing is I have gone on the site a number of times since then and nothing so far on my notebook

                  I emailed you the Beaches T&C June sales kit Monica emailed to me last month.  I would try to upload here as a document for general info, but she sent it as a google document and I am having some technical difficulties...I hope it helps!



                  Hi wendy5512 do you mind emailing me the sales kit as well? My email address is dr_sprout@hotmail.com. Thank you so much

                    Jillvella, I hope this helps with your question:  My fiance Dennis works for the USPS and said that as far as he knows the USPS still accepts letters with the hand stamped wax seal.  The issue is the automated machinery in the "postal plants" that now sort the mail in the departure and receiving cities may pull the wax seals off the envelopes either completely or in parts.


                    Everyone, it has been so fun to read what everyone else has planned and is planning!  I am so thankful that the Beaches Turks & Caicos brides are sharing so much great information, especially when Beaches hasn't been communicating with me at all.


                    It's been almost 2 months since my engagement and I am amazed how much we've already completed!  There are still a lot of little touches and details to handle, such as the, "fun passport invitations or more traditional" debate, but I have over 8 months yet.  My mom and I were at the bridal shop less than 24 hours from the proposal.  I chose the second dress I tried on - you just KNOW when it's right - and they have already completed it for me!   On another sentimental note, we incorporated the diamonds in my grandmother's bridal set into a more modern wedding band to match the engagement ring, and we are just waiting to get it back, plus we have all the other rings plus the veil, shoes, and my options for jewelry.  My sister ordered her MOH dress, plus we scored at some end of summer sales and have the outfits for the best man, my parents, and BIL.  Dennis has two shirt options, and we just need to find some nice linen pants for him.  Oh!  I am really excited about the STD cards we designed in Adobe Illustrator/ Photoshop!  I saw another bride's idea for "vacation sign postcards" in the DIY section a while back and became obsessed with the idea.  My fiance's brother in law (best man) helped us get it done.  He was very patient when I kept changing "font picture" piece in Illustrator, and he created and recreated the final layered project in Photoshop about 3 times to get them just right.  We should get the postcards back from the local printer by the end of the week, and I will try to upload a sample of what we did!  I am so glad we went with a local print business - they are only charging us $18 for 50 finshed postcards with full color on both sides!


                    Also, I went to my first bridal show last weekend which was fun even though I already either have what I want, or know what I want to do already.  I had hoped to see some options for sand ceremonies, but no one had anything, but  the cupcake sampling was worth it alone!  I signed up to "win" a few of the vendor's contests, and while I didn't really win anything, I am now getting crazy emails and phone calls saying I have been selected to win this or that, but upon digging deeper they really just want me and my fiance to come to various sales presentations where I am eligible to receive hotel vouchers that I must pay for to use.  One of them offers tungsten wedding bands if we show up, but we already have that covered. In any case, I have found this aspect a bit annoying, so I have an idea I would like to pass on to others to consider who haven't been to a bridal show yet:  Create a NEW email address that you will use just for bridal shows or wedding stuff, and don't give out your phone number unless you mean to do business with that vendor.  Once your wedding planning is complete and the honeymoon is over, disable the email account you used specifically for the wedding and you don't have to worry about "unsubscribing" to every email.    I hope it helps someone :)


                    Those of you that had a sand ceremony, did you use a container that was able to transport the "wedding sand" back home in one piece?  I'd love to add this to the decor of our master bath "tropical oasis", but haven't found a good container yet.  I appreciate any ideas!




                    I am also having the debate about doing the passport invites with boarding pass RSVP's vs. the more traditional path ( I think it will come down to whether I want to do ti myself or pay someone). If you have not already done so there is a section on the forum for Boarding Pass, Passport invites/save the dates. There are awesome ideas in this section. I decided to do luggage tags as my Save the date.  Your suggestion for creating a new email address just for wedding stuff is a good one that way your personal one is not getting flooded with junk.

                      I sent the sales kit I received in June, as well as the floral upgrade document I was sent Friday. 


                      I hope this helps!
