Hi Beth!  We are only using the Beaches photographers.  We have requested one photgrapher in particular too.  I'm definitely a little worried about how the pictures come out, but I'm staying positive.

Also, what was your general budget and did you stick to it? :) Thanks!

 

Actually we have a lot of places on island that you can get married that are not in front of Big Hotels etc.   Grace Bay beach down near Leeward is a quiet spot near a residential area so no hotels.  Also Sapadilla and Taylor Bay are quiet for the most part but there are villas around .   People that get married there are usually renting one of the homes and then get married on the beach in front of it.  Long Bay Beach is not far from Grace Bay.   You can also charter a boat and get married on one of the uninhabited cays nearby.The Leeward part of Grace Bay is about a 1-2 mile drive from the main hotels.   You can arrange for the officiant/bouquet etc, we have 3-4 different officiants on island, all within the same price ranges and a couple of florists for flowers if you aren't bringing your own. 

 

This is a recent private ceremony Kellie did a few weeks ago in Leeward (there's one photo with the set up to see what it looks like)

Here's a villa wedding at Sapadilla Bay

There are a lot of examples on our blog, our internet is slow tonight so I can't pull a lot up but if you search "leeward" "long bay" "taylor bay" "sapadilla bay" and "water cay" you'll find more samples of weddings on our quieter beaches.   However remember, Even Grace Bay beach is fairly quiet compared to most beaches in the world!

 

Hope that help you visualize options.  Happy Planning!

Hi karamae,

 

About your concern over having an intimate wedding at Beaches T&C, from what I understand, when you get married on the resort, you can do a small intimate wedding option with you and your groom, an officiant and bouquet with your very immediate family on the beach away from everyone. Usually when you get married through Beaches, they set everything up for you and allow you to do a walk through to decide exactly where you want to get married. If you want to get married on one of the smaller outer islands, your WC on the resort would have to speak with the Weddings Manager to set up your small ceremony by the shore.  Theyâ€re all pretty accommodating at Beaches though and their beach weddings are very intimate, but if you can choose your own set up, then itâ€s a win-win situation for you.  Right now beaches is doing a beautiful beginnings package where your beach wedding and honeymoon is actually free with your booking.  I saw it on the link here

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much Krys! I just don't see why everything that says "wedding" has to be so big and expensive! Seems like the hotels charge a ton just put together a simple ceremony. I'd definitely looking for something more low key and simple. I love all the pictures you posted for me to see! :)

    • 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
