    Do you have the most recent sales kit?  If so, can I PM you my email address?

    Also the arches have been reduced... I'm not sure if people posted this info. If they did, sorry for repeating.. FOR, VIW, Chic & natural arch is now $350, the Seaside is $500, and the IP is still $2000.

     

    And..i think the package prices have been reduced as well...FOR $2000, VIW $3000, SS $3200, Chic $3500, IP $3900.

     

    Hope this helps....I think the most recent sales kit is dated March 1st, 2011.

      I have a question does anybody have a clue to why they do not post the prices of everything in the wedding kit (example the arches)?? My TA sent me pics of the centerpiece options but of coarse with no prices. She said it might take a few days to get prices...ugh!! To me it makes since that when a company decides to offer something that they decide then how much is it going to be. It makes me feel like they are trying to offer things at different prices to different people. Sorry to rant on and on but I am frustrated!!

          I noticed some of you girls are booked at various other sandals resorts other than Turks & Caicos - please be aware that prices vary between resort locations.  For example, the MS42 flower bouquet is $550 in T&C but it's $750 at Negril, I only know that bc the new planner I have deals with the Negril location and accidentially gave me that price and I nearly had a heart attack...  $750...sheeeeww!!! crazy!

            Thanks TimeWife. Believe me I emailed them and received an email stating that they are in the process of making things better.

              I feel like it's rediculous that we have to keep up with all of this.  We shouldn't have to asked for updated discounts.  Those prices should automatically be applied to our accounts!

                Hi Ladies,

                 

                I've just returned from the resort, and I will begin working on my review shortly (I know you guys love pictures and I am waiting on my guests to send me a few from the ceremony so I can share them with you all).

                 

                However, I will try to address your concerns- so just put a message on here and I will reply as soon as I can. As far as the rooms in the French Village and the Caribbean Village, in my opinion the biggest difference would be the tv. I stayed in a Honeymoon Suite in the French Village and we had a 46 inch flat screen versus one of our guests stayed in the Caribbean Village and they had a tube as the tv. Other than that, everything was pretty much the same in my opinion. As far as the musty smell in the French Village, I didn't smell anything and my guest didn't complain either. (Oh yeah, and a ton of mosquitoes in the Caribbean Village- lol! I spent the night before the wedding in my parents room in the Caribbean Village and I woke up with 14 bites--4 of them on my face!! Lol)

                 

                Personally, if we return to Beaches I'd stay in the Caribbean Village because it is closer to everything--beach, central location for restaurants, etc.

                 

                Just a piece of information while it's on my mind. Someone said on this thread before, everything will NOT go as planned. So try your best to prepare for the unexpected. For example, we arrived last Wednesday on an American Airlines flight...I've returned to Houston and I have yet to receive our most important piece of luggage with ALL of our wedding items, etc. The suitcase never arrived to Turks and AA can not find our luggage. Originally I did not freak out, but by Thursday evening- Friday morning.....I was a mess. My bridal jewelry is in that luggage, items for our guests, my husbands things that he needed for the ceremony, etc. With that said, we truly had to improvise. Seriously. It really felt like it was going to be a disaster, but we truly made it work...and it turned out to be a beautiful day even though we NEVER received our luggage.

                 

                With that said, girls try your best to take all of your necessary items for the wedding in a carry on bag. It will save you a lot of heartache. Also, if you can avoid it- DO NOT FLY WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES! There were so many of us (staying at various resorts on Grace Bay) that flew American Airlines and did not receive our luggage. I can go on and on about them..but I'll hush.

                 

                Anyway, as soon as I get some pictures I will post the review. Oh yeah, Ileana with Tropical Imaging truly made us forget about our lost luggage when we met with her Friday and while we took pictures Saturday. You HAVE to book her! We got a chance to meet her parents and we truly had a great time!

                      Hey Misti -

                       

                      Congratulations and welcome back!!!  So sorry to hear about your luggage - that stinks!  AA also lost my luggage when I went to Hawaii a few years ago.   Can't wait to read your review and see some pictures.
