Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

OK so now I have questions about flowers. Can anyone who has gotten their flowers from Beaches, tell me how expensive is expensive? Can you give me an idea price wise. I am looking at possibly using the real touch flowers but some of the site I have looked at seem a tad expensive as well. I am also wondering how hard is it to travel with the flowers?

Hi Ladies,

 

Just a quick question regarding OOT Bags/Welcome Bags/Wedding Survival Kits. 

 

Should every guest receive one or should we just give 1 per room?? I love the idea of giving the little ones beach pales/toys so we're definately going with that.

We did 1 per family.  So in the room with my sister, her husband and kids, we did 1 bag ... but in 1 room we had 4 single guests - so we did one for each of them.

We also did one per couple/family and one per single person.  I have three single friends coming, all sharing  a room and gave them each one.  We also gave ours out before the trip, so they can pack their own.

RachelBride and Melissa43, 

 

I think you both were wondering about Roxi, the new WC in Miami since Monica now has a different position.  I had my call with her last month, and suspect she is as helpful as any person who reads a script and works on a sales commission.  I was excited and tried to go off script and she asked me to wait until the end to ask any questions.  I asked her some questions at the end, such as whether the Beaches Island BBQ Party is still on Friday evenings since it looks like I will only have a group of 9 rooms and won't get the "free" welcome/ reception dinner, and she said she'd have to call the resort directly to find out about that; I asked her to do so, but I never heard back from her.  I really wish I had used a travel agent versus calling the Beaches 800 number to make my initial booking, but I know it will all turn out fine.  I am really grateful for all the good advice, suggestions and inspiration from everyone on this site.  YAY!

 

I asked about the floral upgrades, and she said she could look into it if I gave her a code from the floral brochure, acting like it was a hassle.  Try not to get frustrated, and don't pay for anything during your consultation call.  Let her draw up an invoice and email it to you to think about.  Then you can see how much all the extras add up to so you can weigh the pros and cons of the add-ons before calling back to finalize anything.  I think I remember reading in earlier posts that you really don't have to finalize anything until you arrive unless you are upgrading flowers, but I defer to the past Beaches brides who can definitely guide us better :)

Trimalusta!!!  Saturday is your day!  I am so excited for you!  I know you're now going to Jamaica instead of T&C due to the storm, but let us know all about it when you get back :)

Mdcoug,

 

I asked about upgrading the BB flowers to the Island Paradise ones (pinks, oranges, yellows).  I was told the bouquet is $450, and the boutonniere is $25.  I am guessing most of the upgrades run about the same, but I remember reading someone else just added some more stems to the existing bouquet or did a round one instead of long, and it was about an $85 upgrade.  Let us know what you hear when you have your call with Roxi :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
