Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Thank You MissLinz......I'm guessing from what I read on the other forums that Monica more like a sales rep than WC....I also read that the resort wedding planners are very nice and work with brides.  I'm just going to let Monica know we sticking with the BB and when we arrived I talk more with the wedding planner about my final detail planning.

 

welcome back and congrats Kimberlyg can't wait to see the pictures and read your reviews

I'm so excited...that was one of our big worries. Now we're getting married at 5pm. I'm thinking of doing it on the beach now...hmm..

 

and Butterfly913...i heard that if you just bring your favours, and decor that you want to add and speak with the wedding planner on site - that she usually does it for free..but who knows. Good luck...cheesy.gif

 

What promo is this?? Details PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

REVIEW:

Ceremony:

 We got married on Januray 10th at 4 pm- perfect time on the beach just before sunset.  People looked, but it is not a big deal and you forget QUICKLY!  Bring music to be played on a cd.  Wish we had met with pastor before hand- a little strange not ever meeting him first.  He said a few things that were "off"  We wrote our own vows and he implemented his own stuff too.  Sand Ceremony- not worth the $100, but a good concept and symbolism- maybe bring your own container unless you want the jar that says "Martha Stewart WeddingMoons."  Rose petals- $55 dollars a bag to sprinkle on the beach- you need at least two and they are in none of  the "Beaches" Photos anyway (not necessary, but a nice touch).

 

Wedding Coordinator: Patricia is awesome- so helpful and will answer EVERYTHING you neeed to know when you get there.  Do NOT feel pressured in to purchasing anything BEFOREHAND- you can decide there and have a MUCH better idea of how things work.  All the locations are beautiful and ALL the decorations are more than enough.  Beautiful Beginnings is simple and elegant and in the Carribean it is MORE than enough to to feel like a a very nice wedding, but I understand wanting to upgrade.  Seriously though, the BB packagae is colorful and includes all the details just on a simpler scale- consider where you put your money:  Your friends and family will love the background of the ocean and the simplicity of the Carribean- it is luxurious at the table setting with china and fushia orchids (the island choice) and they won't remember the table setting too much anyway- the resort is very nice in it's own...they do a good job!!! 

 

Beaches Photagraphy: Buy the cheapest package possible and it is still not worth the price... :( Sorry  I wish I had better to say, but they just are not the quality you want for your wedding- they are ok, but ANYONE can take the photos they take.  I went with Tropical Imaging- you will thank yourself and photagrapher the rest of your life for making that choice.  It is fun to get around the rest of the island and see some beautiful locations and it is the ONE thing you will have forever to remember the beautiful location of your marriage!  Here are a few pictures of me, my husband and son- lleana is amazing- a very cool woman.  Shenique Higgs did my hair and makeup for the photo shoot and wedding ceremony- pricey, but I couldn't make myself look like that- she is VERY good at what she does!  Trust her ideas... she's good!

http://www.brilliant.tc/2011/01/kimberly-ryan/  I am still waiting for the video from Beaches- my hopes are not high, but I am anxious to view it! Because we had a private ceremony and are having our big formal reception at home ( viewing the ceremony on the big screen) the three of us enjoyed a private candlelight dinner on the beach.  It was very good, but at an all inclusive resort- either of the two adult only retraunts were just AS good!  It was loveley being on the beach by candlelight though.  The food however is the same.   Food: something for everyone- it is all AMAZING!!!  It never ends...Lobster at Sapadillas!  Arizonas- Smoked meats.  The French Restraunt was sooooo good.  Japanese place and Sushi Bar- the best! Shrimp Cocktail and hamburgers at the Pub.  Desserts everywhere- yum! If you have specific questions- ask me.  Try everything!  Drinks in the pool- Dirty Bananas and Mai Tais!   We stayed in the Roman Pent House Ocean Front View Italian Village- ridiculously nice- jetted tub filled with hot bubble bath and flowers on wedding night.  choclate covered strawberries and champagne at bedside another night.   Heart shaped towels and rose petals on bed at turn down service one night- be nice to everyone and they will take care of you!!!  Enock in the Italian Village will get anything you want- anything!  He is so awesome- ask for him.  we drank Coronas on the beach because it was special request and it was delivered that day to the room- no charge.  The bar is stocked with liquor, beer, juice, sodas and waters, but we never sat in the rom and drank- get outside!   Bottom Line:  Remember why you chose a Destination Wedding- relax and it will all be fine!  I stressed too much and it was so unnecessary- they take care of it all and it will be beautiful- keep the Carribean Spirit and you will look and feel your best and your guests will have the time of their life- only the Bride cares about all the little details and I promise that resort will make it elegeant no matter what you choose!  he scenery is already set- the staff makes everyone comfortable, filled with drinks and food- they will remeber how they felt and it sooo pretty- the reception that they offer is AMAZING and quality and beautiful presentation.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
