Turks 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

 

Are there any 2013 turks brides on here?  I see quite a few from previous years.  Where are you getting married on the island?  What are your plans?

 

We are planning a June 2013 wedding date.  Was quite set on Beaches T& C but now not so sure.  Was already to book possibly just over thinking  things. We have children ourselves but now wondering if the resort will be overrun with children for our guests that do not have children.  Also the reviews on the photos are troublesome and the resort has a no outside vendors policy.  We are planning an AHR so we need to have great pics to show for friends and family who cannot make the wedding.

I'm a 2013 TCI bride!!

 

We're getting married on 4/20/13 at the West Bay Club.  We are planning everything with the planner at the WBC.  So far we have only booked a steel drummer for the ceremony and cocktail reception and Salon Maxime for hair and makeup.

I'm currently researching bands (Bowen Arrow or Corey Forbes) and a photographer (Eye Spice or Paradise Photography or bring one with us).

My future mother-in-law is looking into the rehearsal dinner as well (Coco Bistro, beach bbq @ Sibonne or beach bbq @ WBC).

Congrats to you on your engagement and wedding.  Wish my resort allowed outside vendors leave alot of the planning boring.  Not many things to have to do in regards to the actual wedding planning..guess that's the good thing bout the DW

Hey girls. How's the planning coming along. We are getting married on May 17, 2013 at Ocean Club West. We are really excited and have booked Eyespice as our photographer and are having a beach BBQ reception catered by Kissing Fish. It's nice to meet 2013 brides on here.

HI! I'm also a TCI bride for 2013! We're getting married on May 26th. Danie, we are a week apart! So glad there are others! We hired Diane at Island Harmony as our wedding planner and will be having our ceremony at the Sands and then our reception at Mango Reef's outdoor patio. That's about as far as we have gone with our wedding planning. We'll most likely bring our own photographer with us. 

 

Looking forward to hearing more about your weddings plans!

Hey Kim! Thats sound great. I love hearing everyone's ideas. We are getting married at OCW on the beach. But I have set up a catamaran cruise for our guest. theres only 31 of us and this will happen 2 days before the wedding. Reherssal Dinner I am going to have at opus and have an open bar and band and then the reception catered on the beach. Originally I was going to do the reherssal dinner as a beach bbq but when I went on my site visit we were able to witness a reception held on the beach and it was beautiful and convenient for all guest. I actually was shocked because the bbq on the beach is more pricey than an actual reception. I have alot of plans made for guest like deep sea fishing excursions for them men and spa treatment for the women. I'm excited it will be a great vacation.

 

We were also stuck between Brilliant photography and Eyespice. They both show some beautiful pictures on the site. In the end, Eyespice was more within our budget as were able to book him for not only the wedding but the catamaran cruise. The more we plan the more exicted I get lol. 

 

 As you plan more keep me posted. I love meeting brides and I can't believe our weddings are just a week apart. That's so cool.

I was thinking of doing  a catamaran cruise for my guests as well.  Not sure of how many will actually attend.  I have seen many sessions from brilliant here on the site they seem to do beautiful work.  I wish I could use them.  I haven't heard of Eyespice did you near of them on the site or through your own research?

I heard of eye spice while on the island. I met with them and brilliant. They both do great work but different. For us it came down to pricing and hours. I was able to get more time for less money and his work is great plus were guaranteed him which is awesome. You can google him and see some of his work. I felt like I had and still have to determine what things are more important to me than others. I choose photography to be one of the lesser expenses because I would rather spend more money on events for guest and the reception.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
