    This sight has helped SO much! :)


    Any suggestions about which photo package to chose through Beaches? Do you have to decide right away or can I wait until I get there? I want video and obviously a few of the ceremony. I am going with Tropicall Imaging a few days after our wedding, and my Aunt will also be taking pictures...

      I've lived here 15 years and can't ever remember a time going on the beach that the sand was too hot.  My kids and their friends will always do lots of playing in the sand as well and we just don't have that problem here.  The sand is very very white, so it reflects vs absorbs heat.  You should be fine going barefoot!


      Hope that helps

        Did of the brides on here use the spa at beaches to get their hair or make-up done? Just wanted to know if they do an awesome job or not?

            I am planning on the Calypso band for the first hour, just in case the part starts to break up towards the end, and to be sure my guests are entertained if we are off getting pictures still.

              I received my menus back in October too... It seems like Monica does not give the same info to every bride... I am frustrated with her.  I am considering going over her head to talk direct to the on-site WC

                Krys - if you are around I have a question for you.


                We are doing OOT bags and I wanted to include cigars for the men, but I don't want to travel with them and would prefer to buy them once on the island (I actually don't even know if I could bring them from the states if  wanted to? Not sure how customs works with that stuff). Is there anywhere either at the resort (Beaches) or close to the resort , where I'd be able to buy a few cigars?


                Thanks in advance!

                  Krys can definitely answer this better, but I found this awhile ago on the TCI Tourism website.


                  Duty free goods that may be brought in to the Islands include: 50 cigars, 200 cigarettes, 1.136 liters of spirits or wine and perfume for personal use.

                  There are no restrictions for travelers on the import of cameras, film or sports equipment, except spear guns and Hawaiian slings.

                  To bring in firearms of any type (including spear guns and Hawaiian slings), you must have written approval from the Commissioner of Police. Controlled drugs and pornography are illegal.

                    Question for my fellow brides, and Krys!


                    My wedding is at 11am on 5/21, and we're having a 1 hour cocktail reception afterwards.  I am thinking about bringing a small white dress for the reception to avoid getting too hot in my wedding dress.  Is anyone else bringing a "reception dress"?  Will it get THAT hot, considering it's an island and I am sure there's a constant breeze??  I know the temps are typically in the mid to upper 80's in May in T&C, but I live in Florida and it's always humid in the summer and I cannot imagine wearing a wedding dress in the heat for more than 30-45 minutes. 


                    Comments??  Suggestions??  Thanks!!
