Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

I checked this a.m. and I can open attachments!!! WOOHOO!!! Let the DIY project craziness begin!

 

We havent booked yet, gonna it in Jan, which is at least a year in advance so I think thats okay. If we don't get a 4 pm ceremony time though my FH is dead, since he is the one really making me wait!! LOL...And I am toatlly not gonna stress over the reception area....you are totally right about everything!!!

 

I hadn't heard about the 10 rooms booked/free rehersal dinner...let me know about that. That would be great!!!!

 

How long are you staying for?? And how many days will you be there before and after your date??

 

I cant wait for the other girls to get married so we can see pics, it seems they are so hard to come by :(

Hey Ladies,

 

We are getting super excited.....but it seems as though there is soo much still left to do with not soo much time! We are just over 2 months away!  We definitely had to go through a few more hoops in order to be married in a Church down there but I believe that this will definitely be worth it. We are then heading off site for photos and then back to the resort for the cocktail reception...location still yet to be determined.

 

Flowers Flowers Flowers...ok I really need some help with this one girls! Im definitely thinking of real touch just cause of the outrageous cost of flowers on the resort! I have come to understand that the majority of flowers including orchids are flown in to the island hence the prices....I questioned about having my maid of honour and only girl a bouquet designed just like mine (I have chosen the beautiful beginings) soo simple and quite honestly how expensive can a few strands of orchids be. Well I was told $140 for her bouquet and $40 each boutinere. Then Im still left having to determine what to use back here for our reception. Sooo im thinking real touch it is! I have done some research but I see a lot of real touch florists especially any that have been specified on here are quite booked. Any suggestions girls???????

 

Well ladies im sure you are all getting just as excited as I am

Have you looked in the flowers forum? I see that alot fo girls get the real touch or even clay boquets. They are very nice,and look very real.  The flowers are redicuosly expensive, but the more i think about it, the more im am probably just gonna get the fresh. Flowers are something that mean so much to me!

Hi Jordana,

 

I'm sure that the excitement is kicking in for you!! As far as flowers, I think you should follow LizzDee's advice and take a long at the flowers forum. Personally, I'm going with real touch flowers as well. Have you checked out etsy.com? Also, ask around in your town to see if you know of anyone who can make them for you.

 

My colleague is actually making my flowers for me. I will try to post a pic.

    • 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?
