Beaches ~ Turks & Caicos Roll Call!

Recommended Posts

I checked this a.m. and I can open attachments!!! WOOHOO!!! Let the DIY project craziness begin!

 

We havent booked yet, gonna it in Jan, which is at least a year in advance so I think thats okay. If we don't get a 4 pm ceremony time though my FH is dead, since he is the one really making me wait!! LOL...And I am toatlly not gonna stress over the reception area....you are totally right about everything!!!

 

I hadn't heard about the 10 rooms booked/free rehersal dinner...let me know about that. That would be great!!!!

 

How long are you staying for?? And how many days will you be there before and after your date??

 

I cant wait for the other girls to get married so we can see pics, it seems they are so hard to come by :(

Hey Ladies,

 

We are getting super excited.....but it seems as though there is soo much still left to do with not soo much time! We are just over 2 months away!  We definitely had to go through a few more hoops in order to be married in a Church down there but I believe that this will definitely be worth it. We are then heading off site for photos and then back to the resort for the cocktail reception...location still yet to be determined.

 

Flowers Flowers Flowers...ok I really need some help with this one girls! Im definitely thinking of real touch just cause of the outrageous cost of flowers on the resort! I have come to understand that the majority of flowers including orchids are flown in to the island hence the prices....I questioned about having my maid of honour and only girl a bouquet designed just like mine (I have chosen the beautiful beginings) soo simple and quite honestly how expensive can a few strands of orchids be. Well I was told $140 for her bouquet and $40 each boutinere. Then Im still left having to determine what to use back here for our reception. Sooo im thinking real touch it is! I have done some research but I see a lot of real touch florists especially any that have been specified on here are quite booked. Any suggestions girls???????

 

Well ladies im sure you are all getting just as excited as I am

Have you looked in the flowers forum? I see that alot fo girls get the real touch or even clay boquets. They are very nice,and look very real.  The flowers are redicuosly expensive, but the more i think about it, the more im am probably just gonna get the fresh. Flowers are something that mean so much to me!

Hi Jordana,

 

I'm sure that the excitement is kicking in for you!! As far as flowers, I think you should follow LizzDee's advice and take a long at the flowers forum. Personally, I'm going with real touch flowers as well. Have you checked out etsy.com? Also, ask around in your town to see if you know of anyone who can make them for you.

 

My colleague is actually making my flowers for me. I will try to post a pic.

    • 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.
