Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

**ALL PAST BRIDES**

I need some help/advice. I had recently emailed a picture to Dexter & Roxy showing them an archway I liked and asking for a quote. The archway was a plain bamboo arch with hot pink and orange sheer sheets hanging on it. Dexter emailed me back stating that the resort would not be able to source the material but that I could purchase it and bring it myself. I emailed him back asking if I could have the measurements and what not. He just emailed me about two months later quoting me a price of $1950 for a bamboo arch with pink and orange sheer sheets. Now they apparently can source the material however I already planned on getting it myself. So I emailed him back asking how much it would be just for the archway and if I could have my mother just hang the sheets on it. He told me the archway would be $250 and that they would assist with decorating to make sure my day is perfect. BUT they want to charge me $500 to hang two sheets from an archway. I was wondering if any of you past brides went through something similar and if it against their policy to have a family member do this or if they just try to talk to you out of it. Thanks for all your help =]

Wow that seems a tad nuts to charge someone $500 to assist with hanging. I believe I have seen other brides state that they were going to be charged for something that they wanted to do on their own like set up reception tables. In the end what some of the ladies have done is just had someone go out there a few minutes before do it themselves and have not been charged. Did he ever give you the dimensions?  I was thinking of doing the same thing, go and purchase the sheets and just ask a couple of my taller guest to put them bad boys up there.

Hey Ladies,

I am needing help with a few things. A couple questions for the former brides! How many songs did you have for the ceremony? For those that brought their own sand ceremony set, where did you get it and how did you keep the sand in place on the plane ride home? Thanks for the replies and responses in advance!

Hello Beaches Brides!!!

 

I am sitting here with my wedding budget and spreadsheet of all the expenses in front of me and starting to freak out! LOL

 

I have a quick question for past brides...I am going with the "free" wedding with the Beautiful Beginnings package...I know I have seen that a few of you have just had your "reception" at one of the restaurants and didn't have to pay extra since they are all inclusive....My question is, have any of you had around 20-25 people doing this? We are looking like 20 max, but to be on the safe side I want to say 25....I want to see if anyone thinks this will be an issue to have the whole party together at one of the restaurants...and ANY advice you can give would be excellent!!! We are trying to save some money and figuring since it's an all inclusive this would be the best place to start....

 

Also in regards to the "cocktail reception" I know you have to pay extra per head over the 4 people included in the BB package for this...and I have seen some say that the 30 mins only include the waiters walking around...so does that mean you can definitely stay in that area for a longer period of time? And if so, how long did you stay before going to a dinner at one of the restaurants, or your reception?

 

Thank you for ANY advice you can give!!! I have 4 months...and the stress is starting to kick in!

Hey,

we had one song for bride walking down, for signing registrar, one recessional and first dance song. If you do sand ceremony, it will be another song and if you have bridal party you can have them walk down to another song too. Cheers!

I do know that it shouldnt be an issue with your guest count, we had a welcome dinner at Marios (the italian rest.) and I had 22 guests and they were able to accomadate us perfectly, I actually orginally wanted to have it outside which they were also fine with but it was really humid that day so they moved us inside with no issues at all!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
