The catering company Kissing Fish (which is owned and operated by the same people that own Bay Bistro) did our rehearsal dinner/beach BBQ.  It was FABULOUS!  I can't say enough good things about the food and how nice the staff were.  Plus if you are having your wedding at the somerset, it's right next door.  We met with Clive, the owner, the day before to go over everything.  It started at 6PM, and went until the party ended (after minight!).  They provided us with music, microphones, table decorations, did all of the setup/cleanup and provided us with smores to go with the bonfire they made for us!  We couldn't have asked for a more fun and delicious BBQ!

I'm hoping Krys or some of the other brides can help with this one....


We still haven't decided on a venue, and have recently read about Northwest Point Resort.  Can anyone shed some light on this place?  Has anyone here had their wedding there?  We usually stay on the other side of Grace Bay, but would love a less crowded scene, but I'm also nervous that this is too far  from town.  Thoughts?

Northwest Point resort is WAY out there...I haven't been there in a few years, but it would be in the category of cheap and cheerful, and not the caliber of resorts in Grace Bay.  The restaurant is not open very often or at all anymore (not sure as I don't know anyone who has been out there in a while and 2-3 years ago, the resort was looking a bit worn.)   You will have to come into town for restaurants/food/groceries/excursions, and look at a 25-35 minute drive (vs 5 minutes in Grace Bay  (the exception would be Amanyara which is about a 20 minute ride west, very nice hotel and beach but the road to there is not paved and rough.  The beach at NWP resort is on the North side like grace bay but because there is a lot of turtle grass in the water around the Northwest Point area, there is a lot of grass/seaweed wash up on the beach.  unless someone is raking it a couple times a day, it gets a bit messy.   It is not the pristine beach like Grace Bay.    Unless you are staying at Beaches you will find the resorts on Grace Bay pretty quiet (unless it is Easter Break or Christmas Break).   That seems to be why people keep on coming back to the T&C because Grace Bay is low key and not crowded. 


Personally, I wouldn't do NWP resort for a wedding, but that is my own opinion based on distance/convenience/beach (I was there some a while back because we had friends that rented a condo there and my kids would go for playdates/bday parties, they moved closer into Grace Bay).  However I haven't been there in a few years so I can't comment on condition of the resort now and if they have upgraded the rooms/restaurant etc.  We have not had a wedding there that I know of....


Hope that helps.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
