    PLEASE HELP!  Turks & Caicos is one of my dream destinations and I'm hoping to have a small, intimate wedding there.  I have absolutely fallen in love with the photos from Tropical Imaging and I'd like a reception at Bay Bistro but I am at a loss for a VENUE for the ceremony!!  Please recommend some beach venues for 30-60 guests - ideally, I plan to stay there with some immediate family, but I expect most of my friends to stay somewhere more budget friendly, such as Sibonne or Sands.

      Check out www.turksandcaicosreservations.tc, they list all of the resorts and have some of the best deals around.  If you're looking at the Sands and Sibonee as options for your guests, I can give you an idea of hotels close by.   Next to Sibonee is The Sommerset and the Regent Palms.  Currently the Sommerset does not have the restaurant open (change of management) so I would check if catering is an option.  On the other side of the Palms is the Alexandria.   On the other side down from the Sands is Point Grace which is a smaller quieter boutique resort. The beach in front of the sands and Point Grace is very wide and not a whole lot of activity on either side.   Point Grace sometimes gets overlooked as they are a bit smaller, but I have friends that love staying there when they come on island.   The Palms and Sommerset tend to do a lot more weddings so they have the event thing down and either have a wedding coordinator on staff or contract on the coordinators on island. 

       

      Further down the island you could stay at Grace Bay Club/Grace Bay Estates and have wedding and reception there, with Villa Del Mar right next to it and Ocean Club West on one side.  Carribean Paradise Inn is just down the access road for those on tighter budget.

       

       

      Any other questions let me know.

        Krys,

         

        Thank you so much for your response! 

         

        Do you know the contact for events at the Somerset? I can't find it on their website.

         

        What do you think about Villa Renaissance?

          I don't have a current contact at the Sommerset for events as they were using Diane from Island Harmony but Management has just changed, the condo owners have taken over the resort, the restaurant has closed and Andy just told me they are looking to do weddings with someone in house, but we haven't heard yet who that is.  I'll check around and see if I can find something out. 

           

          Villa Renaissance is nice for small weddings but it has a very small beach.  Andy said you may fit 30 people in if it's not high tide but no more than that.  Most of the weddings we've seen there are under 20 or so.  

           

          Are you on Pinterest?  I have a board that is Turks and Caicos wedding and reception locations which has lots of photos and you can see at a glance set ups etc.  My Pinterest acct is under "Krystin Mann"  There is also a wedding details board with fun details from lots of our weddings.

           

          Regent Palms is right next to the Sommerset, they have a lot of different options and a nice stretch of beach.  Grace Bay Club does as well. 

           

          If I can track a contact down for Sommerset I'll post here.
