Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

We also were given the option to get married on the deck in front of Schooners over looking the beach/ocean. Schonners was closed at that time(2pm) and the deck was completly blocked off, so it was private. Its a very pretty setting, and a good alternative from the beach if your anything like me and want to wear heels! :)

I asked her about getting married right there and she looked at me like i had lost my mind.....they didnt give me that option...i wonder why? hmmmm?..............I told her i thought i saw a you tube video where there had been a wedding filmed in that spot and she just looked at me like she had no idea what i was talking about....very strange!...Her name was stacy ann.....the wedding coordinator.

That is so strange! Its funny, because I wanted to get married in the smaller gazebo right near there, but my husband liked the Schooners location because we had a bigger wedding party and it fit us all better. Stacey-Ann was our WC as well, and she was all for the Schooners location too. The only thing I can think of is maybe there was already a wedding taking place in that location around that time, and she was covering that up?

Yeah thats what it sounds like, I also wanted to get married on the beach there in front of schooners but she didnt show me it as an option so I just assumed it was already being used by someone else. For any future brides who know where they want to get married on the resort book it asap, I waited until I got there bc I wasnt really sure where I wanted to get married, but now knowing all the options I would have booked it before hand.

Emilie,

I am so glad that everything went great!!  I can't wait to see pictures. 

Thanks all the great info.   I google Unique but nothing came up.  Do you have a website for them?  That is crazy that she wanted to charge you $600 for something you can get for 150.00

But since it was just four of us it wasnt that big a deal. We were the talk of the resort! The wedding cordinator told us the next day that we were the very first couple who did not show up for our own reception! We did not tell them about the pictures we booked with brilliant! IT was so fun working with Brilliant! We felt like movie stars! If you have a chance to book with them DO IT!!!! Be sure to book your wedding time earlier so you can experience everything with your wedding! We booked with brilliant at the last minute so we couldnt change our wedding time! But it was all good! We also went  to an outside vendor to order our flowers because i could get what i wanted for only 150.00. Monica was trying to charge me 600.00 for something i did not want. I used Unique right on the island. We slipped up and told the wedding cordinator about using an outside vendor and she was NOT HAPPY. She tried to find out the name of who we used but we changed the subject. She kept calling to get the name but we would not give her that info. I had the florist deliver the flowers the day before to make sure its what i wanted. It was not. I sent an email and asked them to redo the flowers with what i wanted. I sent a picture a month before i arrived on the island. They were very nice and made it right. The wedding cordinator made us think that security was so tight that the florist would not be able to deliver the flowers without her approval but thats not true. The florist is the same florist who brings those pitiful looking flowers that are included in the wedding package. There are alot of politics in managment it seems. The locals stick together that arent in managment. We downsized our wedding package from 90 photos to 18 and im so glad i did. It was just enough to get the wedding. Thats all i needed. The quality of the pictures compared to Brilliant well there is no comparison! The album that you get from beaches is just that....an empty album with no photos! I thought we would get some pictures in the album! You really are just paying alot of money for a disk of pics. Beaches resort was awesome! We had so much fun. We were busy all the time! We did take a trip to Da conck shack! That cab ride cost us 80.00 round trip! But we had a good time! The water in Turks is like non ive ever seen! It is heaven on earth! We will for sure be going back to turks!!! WE loved it!!! Ill post some pics. We took a million!

Brandy,

That is really nice of you to look for me. : )  I never thought about doing a search on here. 

I don't have any colors since it is only me, my FI and 7 year old son. 

I am doing the BB package.  I thought I would try to match those colors.  I don't think it is going to be that easy.

Well with the BB package, you can choose the white orchids and then any colors will go with it

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
