Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Im definetely getting married on the beach theres no if ands or buts about it, since I can remember Ive always said I would get married on a beach, I think they do their best to keep people away.

Hopefully the ladies who are there before us will post tons of pics for us to see wink.gif

Bran, do you know if Hockeymom and Michelle-2 are still getting married at the resort? I remember chatting briefly with both of them when I joined the forum.

Brandy,

 

About the location....I know Beaches does alot of weddings a day, so what happens if we wait to choose a location for dinner until we get there and all the good sites are gone??? Do you think they do that many upgraded dinners a day as they do weddings? This will give me anxiety than the flowers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

 

Im not sure about flowers sad.gif  I really want fresh so I might bring a silk hydrangea with me and wire and tape all the individual orchids form the beautiful begin boquet and put them over the silk hyd. to make a round boquet. This would hide the silk hyd. I am a floral designer and my boss is def coming so it might sound like a lotta work, but we could have it done in 10 min, Or, I might do the broach boquet (pics posted in the flowers forum).We just had a photag use it in a photoshoot the other day so I will post prof pics of the finished product when i get them. Or, i might spluge, it will break my little floral designer heart, and buy one of the MS boquets. This kills me!! See, at my job we only do high end weddings. The only thing i have ever thought about when it comes to my wedding is what boquet i would carry, So bummed i dont have the selection i have here, but i guess the location makes up for it!!!!!!

 

 

Also, talked with FH today and we are thinking about doing March 2010 now, but not sure! We are going to move back to NJ in May, so this gives us a few extra months to save since we wil be spending money on the move. We aren't sure yet though!!! We are pretty casual, and aren't in a huge rush, so we will see what happens. Also Jan temp 80...March temp 82....those two extra degrees make me happy!!! Don't think i am going anywhere though...I am now a BDW girl for life!!!

 

PS...I hit 150 posts on Monday and still nothing...it's driving me bananas!!!!

Hey and about the welcome dinner......how many guests are you having??? We are looking at 20+, and if they wont do a reservation the night of the wedding for this many people, will they do it a few nights b4 for a welcome dinner? What are you planning on doing???

 

Maybe welcome cocktails is a good idea since you dont have to reserve space at the bar !

January 10th- 2011 Super Excited- very disappointed about no outside photographers or videoagrapher and no portfloios of their own- bad customer service in that area... we will get it around it though and my fiance, eleven year old and will have an amazing time anyway!  Less than two months away...

Welcome kimberlyg! I think we all understand about the photographers that they have. A few of us have booked Tropical Imaging to do our photos off-site, after the wedding.

 

Brandy sent me this link last week I believe. Check it out...this is some of their work. http://www.brilliant.tc/2010/10/wedding-stacey-michael-beaches-resort/

Misti- I do believe they are still getting married there

 

Lizz- You crack me up, some things you just cant worry about Id go crazy if I thought about all that stuff I think thats why most of us chose beaches bc it didnt leave much planning/decision making up to us lol, heres my thinking I could be wrong though lol, so if a wedding is at 11, then you have your reception well that max reception is what 2 hours or 3 hours right so they have to be gone buy 2, (and not too many people choose to have the long reception, and most people choose to have them in a resturaunt bc it doesnt cost anything) so Im just thinking the chance of someone being where you want as well is kind of slim, and I believe there are many more locations then just those 3 I posted so I wouldnt worry about it too much, and each location holds a certain amount of people too, like the jacuzzi deck looks like it will hold only so many tables, I think youll be fine I do see someone having a reception at the same time and same place, have you booked your date?? There are only 6 time slots so at most only 6 weddings can go on in one day, hope all this makes you feel better.

 

As far as the welcome dinner goes, we will probably be having about 20 people attending our wedding, and I believe (I'll have to check my paper work) if you book 10 rooms then you get a free private rehearsal dinner.

    • 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?
