Its so happy to find someone else who's doing the same thing. I love how you put it - "an amazing vacation with a little "i do" stuck in the middle". Ha! I feel the exact same way. I am going to research the Beaches free wedding. I love the Somerset. I emailed them to ask if i could do something a lot cheaper than what they offer, but haven't heard back. I really want a free wedding. Most resorts usually offer this, but apparently Somerset does not (at least not judging from their website). I was also looking at the Veranda. I emailed them, but haven't heard back from them either. Thanks for telling me about Island Harmony as well. I am going to look them up.
One question: How far in advance do you have to arrive in Turks before they'll marry you??
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my thread and i look forward to hearing back!

We chose Beaches mainly for the reason that it would be an amazing vacation with a little "I do" stuck in the middle.. lol. We have no extra fees associated, which is perfect for us. We did choose Tropical Imaging for photos, and that is an added expense, but worth every penny. Their work is extraordinary!
