Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

Lurker -- coming out of hiding.  I'm Jill.  My boyfriend and I are considering a destination wedding with my children and a smallish number of kids - second wedding for me. This is one of the resorts & islands we are considering.  All your comments are very helpdul. 

 

LizzDee is the reason I came out of hiding. I see Point Pleasant on your invites - I live less than a mile from the TravelSmiths on 88.  I have another friend using them for her destination wedding in the Dominican Republic - she has been pleased.  How has your experience been?

This if for all the Brides getting married in 2012.  I contacted Beaches to find out what is considered a premium room to get the free ceremony if you book 6 nights or more.  They said this is for travel dates until Dec 31 2011.  After this date it is the concierge level room.  Is this true?

I would think they would honor this promotion this far out.  I am hoping to put a deposit this weekend.  I am aiming for Jan 18 2012.

We have one limo driver on island that I know about but I don't think we have any private car services like you are thinking of (our taxi drivers are a very powerful lobby on island and are very quick to squash any competition).  Also it's a maximum 10 minute drive from the airport to Grace Bay (15 minutes if there is traffic LOL)   so you wouldn't even have time to open the champagne before you get there.  There will be air conditioned vans waiting for you at the airport (that's what all of the taxis are).  You may want to use the $$ for a nice spa treatment or something else special once you arrive.

Thanks, Krys!  I agree- if it's only a 10-15 minute ride, then it wouldn't be worth it.  I forgot how close the resort is to the airport!

Hi Lizzdee,

I don't mean to be a pain but do you by any chance have this is writing.  I asked my TA to work some magic since going direct through Beaches would not extend the "promo".

I hope this isn't true as well, because I already booked our wedding/honeymoon and we are staying in a Premium category room to get the "free" wedding...My WC from Beaches is calling me next Monday and this will be one of the FIRST questions I ask her. As soon as I hear something I will be on here to update you ladies!

Brandy,

I saw your pictures on line from Lleana from TI.  They are great.  You look beautiful.  Who did you hair and makeup?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
