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 :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
