      Carol - i"ll send that friend request. 

       

      So glad you mentioned you did the BB package and just added upgrades.  This is what I am thinking about doing too.  Did you end up saving money with the add on's?  Can I ask you what arch you went with and what the cost was?  Did you do a DVD too?  Sorry for all the quetions.

       

      Thx!

OI will be adding more pictures in a few weeks.. my husbands grandparents had a great camera and I am still waiting for those as well as the ones from Tropical Imaging that should be here in a few weeks. Oh and I am so happy that I changed to the BB package, the tables were very pretty!! I had originally booked the Vision in white package but after reading ALLLL the info on this thread I changed it and just did the upgrades I wanted.. like the Arch, 2 extra BB tables decorated, the band.. etc... I actually went the day I got to Turks and looked at a few tables that were decorated and in my opinion it just was not worth the extra charges. I was able to put that money towards doing the 2 hour private dinner instead, which was AMAZING!

       

      Timswife.. I was also sooo worried about it being hot, I brought small fans and had my mom put them on the chairs right before the ceremony but nobody really used them until the private dinner... the breeze from the ocean kept us cool during the ceremony.. but then again it was a bit cloudy that day. I guess it just depends on the weather that day.

      I would see if you can request Stacy as your wedding coordinator when you get there, I have read she is great!

        Hi there! Yes feel free to request me. Oh and yes I saved alot of money doing the BB and upgrades. I did add the white arch, rose petals on the sand, decorated the other 2 tables with bb, the Galpso band for 1 hour, the 2 hour private dinner, and the DVD. (and of course the sand ceremony that they forgot) no big deal. I did not do any photo package ahead of time however I bought like 38 when I was there and it was about 750.00 for that. I didnt want to purchase anything til I saw them. I also did my own hair and make up just because I was scared I would end up not looking like I wanted. I was fine with that. It was actually kind of fun because the girls came to my room and we kind of got ready together!

            Hi ladies :) Question... Have any of you brides who have had your AHR gone through any company online where you can order your flowers and have them shipped to you? Im thinking of doing it this way to save money, but I'm nervous they will be awful...or not even show up on time. I want to have real Hydranga's and then just buy vases to put them in myself. Any suggestions would be great!

             

            Congrats Carole! The one picture I did see looks beautiful! :)

              Hi Carole,

              Congratulations!!  Thank you for posting all this great info.  Between you, Brandy and all the other brides it makes it a lot easier to plan.

              I am also going with the BB and adding the upgrades. 

              Did you book the DVD and the arch prior to going to Beaches or when you got there with everything else?   I read that you were able to get the arch for $350.  Do you know if that is now the going rate?   I know that I defneately want the sand ceremony.  I want to include my son in the ceremony.  We have no guests.  Just the 3 of us.  The DVD will also be important for that reason.  What style of DVD did you get? 
              I would also love to see the pictures.  Can I send a request?

                I am now on the hunt for outfit for my FI and 8 year old son.  Like everyone else would like linen and cotton blend tan pants and cream color long sleeve shirt.  They have to match.  Any suggestions on where to get them.  I looked on line at Island Importer and wedding tropics. 

                 

                Brandy,

                Did you ever get your DVD?  How did it come out?

                      Melissa, I ordered our outfits from cubavera.com, macy's also carries that brand, I was really happy with their pants and their suit.

                       

                      I did get my video, Its not in hand yet, I still have to email them my changes, I think it turned out great, I mean considering I didnt really pay anything for it, it was worth it.
