Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Hi T&C Brides!

 

I'm new to this site...and I obviously don't know how to use it yet!  I am wondering what you guys did for photography?  We have a photographer from home who we would love to have travel with us but it is becoming quite pricey!  Did any of you use the resort photographers?  If so...how does it work...do they cover a full day and then you get to pick what you buy?  Also, did any of you use TI??  I've heard you can use them if you pay for them to be a guest??  I'd love your feedback!

Hi Danir11,

 

I am not going with the Flutter of Romance theme, but I love it.  If I were upgrading my wedding, I would definitely be doing that.  I'm getting married 5/31/12!  Good luck, maybe I'll see you around :)

Hi Danielle,

 

I'm Yanira, nice talking to you too!  So exciting to meet someone on here that will actually be getting married around the same time.  I am not officially using Beaches Photography, but I may just use them for a few prints of the actual ceremony.  To be honest, I don't personally care for the photo's that they take.  Simply because I'm in the business, and I know for a fact that their equipment is not the best, or their technique.  I have seen some images that have blatant photography no-no's, and frankly they charge just as much as a high-end photographer.  Something that I personally do not think is right..... but, I will say that if money weren't an object, I would go with a package from them and then do the other photographs with TI.  Or better yet, just pay the ridiculous fees to have TI do it all.... But being that I can't..... I just opted to have my photo's done off premises with TI.  I will say that there are some brides on here that have used Beaches and were happy with the pictures, I just haven't encountered anyone who was blown away, which is always the case of brides that use TI.  I have yet to hear a negative review on them.

Jessimd - how exciting!  I have a few more days than you, but can definitely relate.  I haven't done it yet, so I don't have any do's or don'ts to share, but what I will say is that it seems like the process is pretty painless!  I have only heard positive things about the beaches wedding, so relax and enjoy the excitement!  Don't worry about a thing!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
