      The Alexandria is a beautiful resort with great space, a nice pool with a swim up bar and a fun beachfront restaurant. The lounge chairs were nice and there are pretty little lamp posts around the resort.I think it would be one of the better resorts to host your wedding as they offer a range of pricing on rooms for guests. They have rooms available that look right over the ocean and I really liked that the balconies were not screened in like at the Sands and Ocean Club resorts. On my honeymoon, I don't want anything between me and the ocean! It is also walkable to several other resorts and restaurants- including Bay Bistro, a very popular spot.

       

      I have wedding guests that booked there but we chose to use a resort that was more walkable to groceries, activities, shopping and inexpensive accomodation options. You could walk down to all that  from the Alexandria but it would be a long walk and not practical with groceries and such. If you had a car it would be great. Of the less expensive, beachfront properties it would have been my pick. It was just a little too far for us.

       

      Good luck with your planning!

        Thank you for your help! We are very excited to go to T&C in April! After reading everyone's posts about wedding coordinators, I realized that noone has mentioned the woman that I am working with, Rosalind McKenzie, and was wondering if anyone had worked with her? Or heard about her? Thanks!

          Can one of you ladies please advise how far away from the downtown/local attractions the Beaches resort is? I'm getting married at Beaches but I know that I definitely want to go off property and explore and extend the same to my guests.

           

          Thanks!

            WCorey, I was debating with working with her or Island Harmony. I eventually chose Island Harmony, but was really close to working with Rosalind. I believe she was the wedding planner for the Alexandra Resort. I spoke with her often while I was trying to figure out who to go with. She always answered all my questions quickly and was always really friendly (and I asked a billion questions in the beginning because I was still deciding on whether or not we'd even get married in Turks and Caicos). I only decided against going with her because I decided on a different venue than Alexandra Resort. She was also incredibly friendly when I told her we decided to go in a different direction. I don't think you'll go wrong with her!

                  W Corey,

                   

                  I just came back from my wedding and Rosalind was our planner. She completely ruined our event. I can't even begin to list the serious errors she made simply out of lack of care. I can forward you the letter of complaints I sent to her that explains everything. She was very responsive at first so I made the mistake of putting my trust in her. My day is over, and I am left heartbroken. I am available to answer any questions to make sure that another bride doesn't have the same experience.

                    Yelena, What happened? So sorry to hear things didn't go well. Wish there was something that could be done, maybe you guys can do a vow renewal and get the details how you want. Once again I'm so sorry to read this.

                      Oh no! Yelena, that is horrible! I'm so glad I did not go with her. I'm so sorry that happened :(. Thank you for sharing so other brides will know.
