Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

I am on a very tight budget.  Does anyone have pictures of getting married on the beach with the BB package.  We have no guests.  It will be myself, FI and my 7year old son.

This is one of the reasons we are picking Beaches.  We want our son to also have a great time.

Lurking coming out of hiding here....I'm Jill. 


I saw Lizzdee's wedding invites -- and saw Point Pleasant and had to post - because I live in Point, less than a mile from Travelsmiths.  I have a friend using them to book her DW in the DR at Dreams and she says they are great. How has your experience been?


I'm not engaged yet - probably in the Fall.  Second wedding - we both agree that it will be somewhere on a beach with my kids and close family/friends. This is one of the resorts being considered - and reading all of your comments have been hugely helpful.


Best wishes to all of you!

Melissa, when are you getting married? I'm getting married Aug 10th this year and it will just be me, him, and my then 16 year old daughter. I've been curious as well! If I get married before you, I'll be sure to post pix!

Hi Ladies!  I cannot believe I will be married in only 20 days, and 17 days until we leave!  AHH!  Anyways...has anyone booked or considered booking a private car transfer from the airport?  Just trying to figure-out if it would be worth it.  Since this is our honeymoon,  I'm trying to make the trip as nice as possible, without spending too much $$.  I just think it may be nice to have a private car pick us up (hopefully with a bottle of champagne, too!)  Suggestions?  Opinions? wink.gif

Hi! I have not booked the date yet. Hopefully next weekend we will put the deposit down. It will be in Jan 2012. What room are you staying in? I am thinking CV. I would love to see pics.

Yay!!!  Yes, there are quite a few of us on here that will be getting married on May 21st!  Only 19 days left...not that I am counting or anything..ha-ha!!  Do you have any last-minute things to do?  I am pretty much done, I just need to get some more summer clothes before we leave, and my real-touch bouquet should be arriving any day now!

Me too, LaurenMarie & TheHogans!!  Can you believe how fast this is coming?  I remember when I had a year!


I think I have most everything, Lauren - I am sending out "pre-travel" brochures this week (hopefully) and then I have paint brushes to "brush the beach from your feet" - I'm hoping to do them as well for my oot bags... but if I don't get to them, I'm not going to worry about it.


Other than that, I think I'm good to go!  With all this ugly weather, I'm looking forward to getting to the tropics!  I just hope the weather is BEAUTIFUL in Turks!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
