Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Brandy thank you soo much for the amazing review! Your pictures were great! We all really appreciate you starting this thread, it has helped me a ton! I have a few questions. 1. Do you think the 2 hour reception was long enough for you? I am debating on doing the 2 or 3 hour. 2. How did you communicate with your guest while you were at the resort? I have heard of doing 2 way radio? Or Cell phone pre-paid Sim cards?? 3. How far of a walk was it to get to TI right after your ceremony for you and your guest? I would LOVE to do that, I am also doing TI 2 days after the wedding:)

I thought the 2 hour reception was plenty, we left there and went to turtles lounge and danced all night long, they had a DJ and they were playing great music there, everything danced and drank and had a great time longer after the 2 hour reception was done.

Communication with guests, this one is a little hard, if you can get 2 way radios thats a great option, I looked into it and couldnt find any that were cheap enough, we usually just called around the rooms and in the morning to see what everyone had planned for the day and we would all meet up or bump into each other, it worked out pretty good, you can always find someone and that someone will know where someone else is lol so it all worked out.

The walk down the beach to TI wasnt long at all!! You walk to the end of the resort and Ileana was there waiting for us very easy to access no issues at all, theres no kind of fence or barrier between the 2 resorts just a security guard sitting in between the two resorts.

Im very happy to help out, any more questions ask away!!!!

Does anybody have any details about the Beautiful Beginings theme? That package I believe is for free if you stay 6 nights or longer. I believe it includes a 30 min reception but what excatly goes on within that time period? i will most likely be having the dinner at one one the restaurants to save some money. Also, what's the deal with the music (for both ceremony and reception) is that automatically included? I'm just trying to figure out what is extra as for we are trying to keep it as affordable as possible.

Oh, does anyone know the cheapest month(s) to go?

All your posts are very helpful~thank you!

Brandy these TI pictures are amazing! You look amazing! I am so glad that I decided to go with TI too!

 

I am still debating on the ceramony & reception music. I have a very "fun" crowd and they will want to be up and dancing. Does the calypso band get people up or should I go with a dj? Also, for the actual ceremony I was thinking of the steel drums or an instument (guitar)? Did you do either of these? If so is there certain songs you would suggest?

 

This forum has been so helpful & so have you!! Thank you SOOOO much!

Kim

Thanks Kim!!!

Our crowd really enjoyed the calypso band, I wouldnt say they try getting people out there, they just play, and they take requests, I dont know too much about the DJ but that probably is better dance music than the calpyso band, we went out to turtles bar afterwards which is where they had a DJ and they played great music, but they dont really say anything to get people hyped up or anything, they just play the music.

This was a special they had back in January and Monica send me the details.  You should ask her, she might be able to get it for you or let you know if they have any other specials. 

 

Hope this helps :)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
