    I'm getting married at 6pm! My wedding planner timed it so it would be right before sunset (which i believe is around 7:30pm for me).

        Does anyone know of a vendor on the island that allows you to pay to rent a bird to do a dove release or any kind of bird release at the ceremony?

          I have never seen anything like that (or heard about it) here (lived here 18 years) and we don't have native "doves" or birds etc on island that would be used for that sort of thing.  Our animal import laws are extremely strict as well(the amount of paperwork, testing, etc just to have a pet dog brought in is unbelievable) .  There are many other things you could do.  I have seen people all choose stones and write a wish and toss them in the ocean.  We have seen people toss bougainvillea petals in the air (makes for beautiful photos.)  There are quite a few creative things you can do with the nature surrounding you.

            Yeah the bird is symbolic for a family member that is no longer living. So stones won't work. The wedding coordinator said she was going to look into it but I wanted to do my own research. Hopefully I can find a place that I can pay to do it that the resort will allow me to bring in.


            Thank you for your reply

              Sooo, Danie! How was your wedding?!?!


              We had our wedding on May 26th and it was perfect! I will post a full summary/review on the board soon. I miss Turks and Caicos already!

                  Thanks, shannamarie! Your wedding is going to be great! I just posted my review (It's My May 2013 Turks and Caicos Wedding). Honestly, I had all these plans to check out restaurants and go on excursions, but my husband and I ended up just spending most of the time hanging out on the beach. Don't feel like you have to go explore the island if you don't feel like it!


                  I think a must though is just take at least a night or so to spend time with your soon to be husband. Although we had so much fun with our guests, it was nice to spend time alone together and let it sink in that we just got married! Also, as stated in my review, jump up and down a bit after you get your done to make sure it stays in place (mine did not at all! this is what I get for wanting loose curls when I have thick straight hair). And also, make sure you have a back plan for rain. It rained for the weddings the day before our wedding and it looked like one of the weddings didn't have a back up plan (we watched all the guests waiting under umbrellas for more than an hour and the groomsmen getting soaked). We felt horrible for them. Also, don't watch the weather forecast like I did. It's never correct! Just have a back up plan and know that you can't control the weather :).


                  Good luck and let me know if you have any questions!

                      My wedding is at Seven Stars next month (July 2013). Eeee! Many of your wedding dates have passed. How were your vendors? Flowers, music, hair and makeup, etc?
