Newbie...I am thinking Turks and Caicos!!!

Recommended Posts

First off congrats!!! My fiance and I just recently got engaged. I was hoping to plan for Fiji, but after viewing a show House Hunters International on HGTV I researched the Turks and Cacicos alittle more and fell in love. I will be planning for an intimate wedding in the Turks as well. :) If you found any info that may be helpful I would really appreciate it.

 

Thank you,

Amber

Check out "the Islands" in the forum navigation button, that has a lot of information about the T&C with brides reviews and hotel references etc!

Hey Amber,

 

Thank you for the message.  I have found tons of information and would be happy to share.  Dylan and were there in April and got engaged, so I can speak from first hand visiting experience.  I have been in contact with a number of vendors and properties since that time as well.  What kind of information are you looking for...locations?  Please let me know any questions you have and I would be happy to answer...to the best of my ability. 

 

Also, I used to be a destination wedding planner, so I know it can be daunting.  The important thing to remember is to ask all your questions up front.  You need to know all about tax and service fees before you sign a contract anywhere.  These fees can drastically change your final costs.

 

In addition, one thing I have found is that some places can take a bit of time to get back to you.  If this is an issue, make sure you address that upfront with your hotel.  I find this to be less of an issue in Turks than other islands, but it is something to keep in mind.  My fiance calls it island response time.

Hey Everyone,

 

So, my wedding at Gansevoort has just fallen apart.  You would not believe the unethical things that hotel just did to us.  If anyone is thinking of getting married there....DON'T.  They are not equipped to handle weddings or to treat their brides with respect.  If you have specific questions about this hotel, I would be happy to talk to you about it or answer any questions.

 

So...we are starting over.  I am really sad about the whole thing, but it is time to move on.  We are now looking at Grace Bay Club and Seven Stars.  I spoke to Ileana at Tropical Imaging and got some good feedback and saw their photos, but I would love pricing information, especially on Grace Bay.  Does anyone know about their prices or minimums?  I know they are pricey, but so was Gansevoort...I just need to know how pricey.

 

I also saw some posts about music restrictions or something at Grace Bay.  Does anyone know about this?

 

I am a bit overwhelmed with starting over after 2 months, so any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Karey

    • 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?
