            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.

                    Sounds great Jen.  Any information is appreciated.

                     

                    Are you getting married in Turks this July?

                      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
