Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the "commemorative gift" is that the resort gives you if you announce your wedding is at a Beaches Resort in your local newspaper or on your blog?

 

Just curious...

Misti -

 

Did you find someone with a RAISED seal for your documents?  The places that I have checked all use the regular ink stamp.  I hate to wait until the last minute to find out I have a problem with the documents.  Especially since I have to include a divorce decree with mine - Hope it is not going to make things more complicated.

You will be fine- a raised seal isn't used anymore- my stuff has been turned in for a while and Monica said everything is fine.  Monica is not very good at her job by the way and they really need more than 1 or 2 wedding coordinators it seems to handle all the weddings... I planned everything myself and had my travel agent order the stuff I wanted just because it takes too long to go through Beaches... at the end of the day everything can be done yourself with or without wedding coordinator or travel agent.  I think if you have a big party they will pay more attention to you- I am excited for my intimate wedding vaccation with my 11 year old and fiance January 10th and then to have my big reception, which will be like a second wedding this summer in Boulder Colorado!  Good Luck to All- Will post a review when I return!  Any Specifics anyone wants me to look out for?

 

Peacefully,

Kimberly

WooHoo Kimberly!

 

That is literally aruond the corner (20 days to be exact)! Wow..it really seems like we're having the exact time of events--intimate wedding and HUGE celebration once we return.

 

May I ask what did you decide to order through your travel agent?

Hi Michelle,

 

I spoke with Amoy (someone in Miami who works with all of the documents)...she said that the stamp was fine. Apparently, A LOT of states no longer use the raised seal. Be sure to notarize EVERYTHING that you send. Originally I was told that only the affidavit needed to be notarized.

 

I sent everything via UPS yesterday and they should receive it tomorrow. How's your planning?

Just the standard edit Video($500) and the cheapest photo package they offer... We are using Tropical Imaging for the other pictures.  My girlfriend owns a photo studio and will edit and retouch all the "Beaches" photos... $410 for 18 on a digital disk- kind of ridiculous.  An extra boutenier for my son (11 yeasrs old) and he will also join us for the candlelight dinner(additional $45) instead of a reception. We are going to go to dinner some other night by ourselves at one of the adult only restarunts.  Basically- you DO NOT need a TA to do ANY of this- I just do it because it's easy and send her a quick email...

Oh okay. I need to go ahead and reserve the standard video myself. I haven't given it much thought lately.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
