Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Hi butterfly,

 

The resort has two gazebos and their both in the Caribbean Village area. The one I chose was right behind the restaurant Schooners. It has slightly more shade because of the trees, plants, etc.

 

I also went with the BB package. I didn't have any upgrades, didn't purchase any of Beaches crappy pics, etc. and everything was great! I hope this helps you somewhat.

Hey Misti, your pics were beautiful!  We are paying for our pics ourself and I only wish I could afford Tropical Imaging.  The vision in white theme comes with 12 pics and a video.  I only added the 18 pics for $410.  So... I will only have 20 pics of my wedding :( 

Photography is sooooo expensive!

Hi ladies, I just found this blog and spent my entire morning reading all 56 pages and Iâ€m so happy I did! My fi and I are booked at Beaches TCI for a May 4th, 2012 wedding. Two days after we booked, I was informed that my rent was going up $500 a month (yikes!) so weâ€re going to be pinching pennies until itâ€s paid for. I was pretty set on a beach ceremony but after finding this thread and seeing all the pictures Iâ€m really leaning towards a gazebo location now. I think weâ€re going to stick with the BB package, I was planning on using TI but am not sure if I will be able to now with the increase in rent. I also think I will be stuck having my hair and makeup done at the beaches spa. Does anyone have pictures of their hair and makeup done by the spa there? 

 

Iâ€m wondering how to suggest to my guests that they book at Beaches, I feel bad because itâ€s such an expense but itâ€ll really be a strain to pay for day passes for everyone. I sent out an email just saying if the booked anywhere other than Beaches to let me know because Iâ€d have to put them on a list for day passes but I did not say it would be an extra expense. How did you ladies handle this, is there anyway to do it without being tacky? Luckily weâ€re only expecting 10-15 but with the prices they charge for the passes that could add up quickly!

Hi Misti -

 

Your pictures are beautiful and you looked absolutely STUNNING!!!  We have Ileana booked also and I am looking so forward to meeting her.  When is your AHR?  Are you going to have pictures back for your guests to see?

I have chosen to go with the 18 images for $410 through Beaches, along with the Deluxe Edit DVD.

 

Does anybody know if they just take 18 images and thats it? Or do they take way more and give you the option to buy more after you see them? I dont want to committ, and then end up hating the quality of the pictures.

 

My fiance and I are doing the Trash the Dress with Ileana a couple days after the wedding, but our family wont be in any of those.

Welcome back Misti! Sorry to hear about the luggage situation. You handled it like a champ! I LOVE your TI pictures! I am talking with Ileana now on booking with her. I actually paid for a Beaches photo package already (unfortunatly),but after seeing your photos I decided I really want to use them. Pictures is one of the most important things to me, so I will find a way to do this!!! What time of day did you take the pictures? I am trying to decide early in the morning, or sunset? Congratulations!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
