Hi Ladies,

I'm a newbie to this site, but want to thank you all for writing such robust and honest posts - was huge in helping me choose Beaches T&C for my March 10, 2012 wedding.  One question I am hoping someone can help me with - I am having a really difficult time getting in touch with our assigned wedding planner, Monica.  Any tips?

Thanks,

Jill

Hi Jillvella welcome.gif.  I am sure that some of the ladies that have already had their wedding will be able to answer your question better than I can, but I don't think you will have a telephone meeting with Monica until you are much closer to your date.

Have you been emailing or calling, I find email the best way to contact her, but it still takes her a day or two to respond, you just have to be patient, she will answer eventually, from what I understand they are pretty busy people.

Thanks Michelle and Brandy!  I got one initial voice mail from her and a follow up e-mail with the planning kit, but have not heard from her since. I'll wait a few more days before I email/call her again.  I'm a New Yorker, so I have trouble with "Island Time"! I guess I better get used to this!  Thanks for your quick replies!

For those of you trying to get in touch, just remember, these two weeks are the busiest of the year with may and April being the busiest on island.  Beaches can have up to 7-10 weddings a day these weeks with 3-5 a day minimum during April and May so the coordinators on site have their hands really really full.  It's not that they are ignoring you or are on island time, it's that they are going flat out to make the current brides happy (and there are a lot on island).  I know my husband has been doing 16 hour days for 3 weeks now with limited time off, and we don't do anywhere near the volume of Beaches weddings.

 

Hope that helps (this year is the busiest I have seen in 16 years on island, I guess the secret is out LOL)

Here are my finished invites! I wanted to share so you girls can use the wording if you want! I stole alot from other Beaches Turks girls and the Beaches brochure. I love the location card! Now i just need to find out how much it is gonna be to mail these suckers, they are kinda heavy and square which is apperently more expensive :( Also, i don't like any of the stamps at the Post Office, minor detail no-one will notice except me, i know, but still. And i am to lazy, cheap, impatient, to get custom stamps made. Ugh....lol!!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
