The Turks and Caicos is an incredible place to host a destination wedding, yet it’s no secret that it can be difficult and time-consuming to plan the perfect wedding, especially from outside of the country. A wedding planner can take the stress out of arranging your important day. Event agencies can arrange all aspects of your wedding, including assistance with the legal aspects and paperwork, catering, decorations, and photography, and ensure that everything runs smoothly. They also have inside information on what’s possible, and the locations and services that are ideal.
Choosing a Wedding Planer
There are a number of local event management companies and wedding planners to choose from when planning your destination wedding. Many have been in business for over a decade.
Your budget and a clear scope should be the first consideration before interviewing potential planners. You’ll want to clearly convey what aspects are being handled by them, and which aspects you’ll be taking care of.
Specials and Packages
One factor which will comprise a large portion of the expenditures will be accommodation, and this is highly dependent on the time of year. Many of the local resorts offer wedding packages (which may include additional amenities such as time at a spa), and having a good idea in advance of the number of guests and date will give your wedding planner the option of inquiring about a block of rooms at a resort, potentially resulting in significant savings. This is also the case for restaurants and catering services.
We suggest you arrange a call with a couple of wedding planners to find one which ‘suits' you. Some couples may want to manage every aspect of their ceremony, whereas others may be more relaxed. You’ll want to ensure that your chosen wedding planning team aligns with your perspectives.
Wedding Location and Reception
Grace Bay Beach on Providenciales is the most popular location for beach weddings. Receptions are typically held at a resort’s onsite restaurant, as there is a lack of conference and event halls in the country.
Some resorts, hotels, and villas offer a better setting for a wedding or reception than other locations do. See Best Wedding Resorts.
A sunset boat cruise or similar venue is also popular with those getting married in the Turks and Caicos, either for the wedding or reception. Several of the luxury charter companies can take the whole wedding party out to spectacular cays such as Water Cay, Fort George Cay, or Half Moon Bay.
