Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

We have great dr's on island if for any reason you need an antibiotic.  Don't bring an antibiotic unless it's been prescribed for a specific ailment...there is too much antibiotic resistant bacteria in the World right now, don't use one unless it's needed.   Our water is safe to drink/brush teeth etc.   It's from a desalination plant...no problems there.   Tetnus shots are a good shot to stay up to date with even at home...but we can do that here if for any reason you needed one.  I haven't had a Hep A vaccine since I went to Africa 17 years ago...again, not very necessary that I know of.  

 

We have just had a lot of rain in a short period of time, which tends to produce some mosquitoes over the next 2 weeks (hotels spray, but you could get bitten at dawn and dusk).   It's not bad, but if you are sensitive to biting insects and are arriving in the next couple of weeks, bring some Off from home...it's more expensive here.   (Again they won't be bad compared to rainforest type places, but just more than we're used to.

 

Hope that helps...

I need to vent for a moment.  I looked up the pricing for Tropical Imaging and found one page under portraits for prices.  Under the Island Escape option, it states for brides that want to trash the dress. I assumed that was the price.  I couldn't find prices for the boudoir session or deposit information so I finally emailed them.  I requested Ileana on the comment area and she responded to me.  I asked about that pricing and she said that it's not for wedding couples as they do extra TLC for editing.  While I understand that, put that on your website!!!  So any brides looking into using them, they require 50% deposit to book your session and they email you an attachment with the prices.  I'm glad I still have over a year before the wedding to save up and add it to the budget.  I really want to do ttd, boudoir and maybe an hour after the ceremony with guests.  

 

For the record, Ileana was great in the emails and gave me all the info I needed. I really hope I get to work with her when it's my wedding time.

So I just had my phone call to schedule my planning session with Roxy. I was very upfront about my hesitations on her responsiveness and customer service based on the information posted by past brides. The representative assured me that I can reach out to her directly if I did not have a satisfactory call with her, so wish me luck!

Awesome pictures! Beaches allowed you to bring them on-site to take your photos? I love it. I think I will be bombarding you with questions as time goes on, if you don't mind. Beautiful though, I really like the one of the 3 of you laying on top of each other.

Thank you! That is my FAVORITE one too :) I am a picture freak, so I actually paid extra to bring them on the resort, that was my one splurg, my husband was mad that i spent that much, but after doing the pictures and getting them back he is so happy I did :) Def. I would be happy to answer any questions!!

    • 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.
