    Beaches does have alot to offer but if they can't afford it, so be it....you can always walk down the beach to meet them for the snorkeling or something :)) the BEST snorkeling is actually down the beach from Beaches....if you come out to the beach, face the ocean and go left and go down to the beach to the next resort (blue umbrellas also) there is the Coral Gardens...it's a reserve that is protected but you are allowed to snorkel around....WOW, beautiful coral and fish all over!!!! It's a must see :)) also anyone on the beaches can walk around and stop with each other hit the Beaches security is heavy once you walk up the stairs to get to the resort area...they literally radio to each other the description of people at each end of the beach that has walked a long way up the beach...and they ask u your room number. So just an FYI.

    Thanks Kisha.  The cousins pretty much said if they stay at another resort they could afford to go.  I'm going east to visit family this summer and I'll see my aunt at the beach.  She loves the beach and the DW is a stupid idea?  I think you nailed the jealousy factor.! I do feel sales person esq when telling people what all Beaches has to offer.  I'll have my FI, my daughter and parents there and I'm focusing on that!   Thanks again for pep talk.  :cheer2:

      That is really helpful Jess!  Thank you.  That's great info about the snorkeling.  Was it easy to rent the snorkel gear? And you could take it off the Beaches beach?  Did you use Tropical Imaging?  Was it amazing?

       

      I actually got in a fight with my mom over my wedding dress.  My future in laws were in town and we had my first ever try on wedding dresses.  Well my mom got pissed that it wasn't with her and it was with my soon to be mother in law.  I had to keep telling myself that this is my wedding.  That's my new mantra!  I'm not a selfish person, but I can be selfish about my wedding.

        We actually brought our own snorkel gear but my friends rented it very easily and yes you can take it off resort, just have to return it :) I didn't use Tropical Imaging, I actually flew a friend of ours in and paid for his entire trip in exchange for one day of him taking pictures. It worked out well :) I'm still waiting for the rest of my pics....it's torture!! My mom and I don't have a very good relationship as it is and I got in a few fights with her before we even left...she was pissed because when we went dress shopping it wasn't just me and her, I brought along my mother on law and sister in law....keep saying your mantra Amber because you can't make everyone happy....just make yourself happy....it's YOUR DAY :))

        Thanks!  I'm almost tempted to get my own snorkel gear so I can use it whenever.  I hope you get your pics soon!

          Thanks.  I saw some at Costco for $39 so very good price indeed!  Loved your pics btw on fb!  Looked like soo much fun.  I can't believe I still need to wait a year and 4months.  Ahhhh, but damn we need to save money.

            Thank you! I'm supposed to meet with the photographer this weekend so possibly more will be up soon :) As for the wait, it sucks, but honestly it went so fast! And well worth the wait!!!

              Hello! We just recently got engaged and I am thinking about May of 2013 in Turks and Caicos at Beaches. I really don't even know where to begin bc I have just started looking. But I really really want a good photographer? Any recommendations?
