      Hi all! Our wedding has been booked for May 2014 @ Beaches T&C! I was wondering if anyone has had an indian ceremony there before? or knows of someone who has? We are hoping to do a small indian ceremony in the morning followed by the vows prior to the evening reception.

      Hey Everyone. Just came across this thread after we booked our wedding. Dawn & Nick  May 24, 2014 Noon Location: TBD Lots of great ideas and it took a week or so to read. We have a lot of planning to do!!

      Hi ladies welcome..congrats im May 2014 also. I'm May 2 2014..don't know about an Indian ceremony maybe do a site search. When you have your conference call be sure to ask about that..

        Congratulations!! We are getting married there June 2014.  Can anyone provide any reviews on the photography at the Beaches resort?

        congrats welcome..past reviews have been both good and bad..however now they have professional outside partners to choose from so options should be much better

          Hi everyone! I just had my wedding here and it was absolutely amazing. I had a private 2 hour dinner with an extended hour bar and DJ. I'd be happy to answer any questions. Happy planning!Posted Image

          Hi pam Congrats to you! You looked beautiful! Which wedding package did you choose and ceremony location? What music did you use for coming down the aisle a recording? Did the dj give you a list of music to choose from? Where did you have your private dinner reception? Did you use beaches photographers or one of the new partners? I see you all had parasols. Did you use bouquets at all? Sorry for million questions probably have a million more.

            I will be getting married there May, 30th 2014! Any helpful hints? I want to hire a videographer and photographer that is not associated with Beaches, does anyone know what the fee would be to bring in someone from the outside? What about the Beaches DJ? Are they good? Would love any helpful information about the wedding in general!

              Beaches does not allow outside vendors not associated with them..until recently they didn't have photographers not associated with them at all. They now have a select few thst you can choose from listed on their website.. pa st brides on the thread who brought their own photographers have paid for the photographers as guest of their wedding minimum of 3nights I believe. You should go through the thread. Are you booked already?

                Hey there, the fee to bring an outside vendor onto the property is $75 for a day pass the day of the wedding. You have to tell them who the vendor is and they put it on a list.  I paid to bring Shenique on property for hair and makeup. The DJ we had for the wedding was fantastic! They send you this form and you can list everything you want or don't want played. There are very specific questions to narrow down your choices and we had no issues. For walking down the aisle, we just had the standard wedding march played and it was actually another DJ that set up and played the music so it wasn't coming from a little speaker. We had 80 guests so it was appropriate. We also chose our recessional song, which was "Champagne Life" by Ne-Yo and it was really fun. 

                 

                You asked about alcohol being included in a 3 hour reception, and yes. Alcohol is included in everything! The bar is set up during cocktail hour and the guests are able to order whatever they like. There was soooooo much food during the course of the reception and it was all tasty! We had guests stay off the resort who came on for the day and they were thoroughly pleased. 

                 

                I hope I answered all of your questions!

                  Hey Kisha, I know you took your own photographer. Did you pay the $75 for this as well or did you pay for them as a guest? Also, how was shenique with hair and make-up were you happy? Did she do your bridal party as well? Thanks for the dj info very helpful.

                    We flew our photographer down, so he and his assistant stayed at the resort as a part of our wedding party. We simply told the resort we had our own photographer and didn't need Beaches. Shenique was pretty good. She did my hair according to the picture I showed. The makeup was alright to me, I'm not a makeup person and I didn't really specify the look I was going for so it fell short for me. I did a boudoir shoot a couple of months ago and really loved my makeup for that so I had the same expectations. I know she had other brides to do that day so she wasn't very chatty but that could just be her business demeanor. She only did me and my mom that day.
