    We’re all booked !!! finally J

    Here is the plan…

    We have 27 adults (including the 2 of us) and 3 kids traveling with us.  We’re leaving May 1, 20011 and the wedding is on May 04, 2011.

    We get there on Sunday around noon and the plan is to meet everyone in our room to have a toast and give them the loot bags and off we go on a bar hopping tour. (get to know the resort)

    Monday : drinking game day (twister, kings,…), the purpose is to get everyone drunk enough so they can’t drink as much on Tuesday (the day before the wedding) we have a crazy group…everyone loves to drink and party..hahaha

    Tuesday : relaxing day (everyone should be hangover)

    Wednesday :  wedding day…. The ceremony is on the beach @ 1:00 pm (chic and natural).  I’m doing my makeup and hair with Shenique. 

    After the ceremony we have our half an hour complimentary reception to have a toast with everyone and take pictures and hangout for couple of hours.  We’ve got the beaches photography package since we wanted to have pictures of the ceremony and reception.  Here is the package we got:

    Package 2       Best Value (red tab)  

    ·         Two hour session w/Professional Photographer

    ·         One 12x12 Wedding Album (with 110 photos)

    ·         Two 8x8 Parent Books

    ·         40 Thank You Cards

    ·         Two Calendars

    ·         Two Magnets

    ·         CD with Original Photos

    ·         FREE 20x30 hand painted canvas (a $300 value)

    Sale Price:  $1,565

    At around 4:30 Andrew and I leave to take pictures with Ileana (I couldn’t resist) !!  and our guests will have a couple of hours of free time. I’ve bought 2 dresses (they’re not wedding dresses, simple bridesmaid dress in ivory) so I can trash one :o crazy I know !!!

    We’ll be back at the resort by 6:30 -7 and the plan is to have a cocktail hour with the calypso band and then 2 hour duo plated dinner reception with the DJ. Here is the menu and it’s $75 pp.

    Thursday : relaxing day.

    Friday : toga party.

    Saturday : marty gras party…. I’ve bough beads and masks…. Haha

        Sunday : all of our family and friends leave and we stay for another week to recover….

    I can’t wait !!! Good luck to everyone.

    Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions J

        LizzDee- Those are gorgeous! I love how you added some backround about Turks and Caicos! I wish I had...I can't even tell you how many times we were asked where Turks and Caicos even was by our guests before they booked! :)

          Hi Ladies,

           

          My fiance and I just decided last weekend that we will be having a 2012 wedding at Beaches T & C.  I will post once we decide on a date...guess that is the next step.

              Thanks ! That's exactly why I put the location card in the invite. I didn't send out STDs, and when I told people they were like 'wheres Turks and caicos' ? So I think this was good because they know were it is now, and how close it is.

                I was just wondering what everyone else is doing.....are you doing your first dance before or after your dinner/reception?
