Top Tips for Planning the Perfect Turks & Caicos Wedding

Weddings take a lot of planning and one of the critical factors when thinking about this is the destination. Turks and Caicos offer serene wedding venues that can transform your big day into an unforgettable experience. Here are the factors to consider when planning a Turks and Caicos wedding.

Seasons

While there is no winter in the traditional sense, there are seasons that are better than others for holding weddings. For example, there is the hurricane season between June to November where there is a small but ever-present danger that a storm might disrupt your big day. There are months in which it gets really hot and might make it impossible for one to have a great wedding. The best time to have a wedding in Turks and Caicos is between April and June which is just after the peak season. This means better prices for airline tickets and accommodation. That period of the year also tends to not be too hot

Sunscreen

The islands of Turks and Caicos are hot and it is advisable for the bride and the groom to use sunscreen to protect their skin. There is always the danger of sunburns which can ruin wedding pictures. Ensure everyone is using sunscreen and don’t spend more time in the sun than you need to.

Dress accordingly

This harks back to the climate once more. When you are choosing your wedding dress or suits, keep in mind that you will be in a hot tropical island. Wearing a thick stuffy wedding dress might leave you hot and sweating in the hot sun. This will not only leave you very uncomfortable but might also cause your make-up to run and ruin the photos. When picking a wedding dress, lean towards light materials, sleeveless and backless dresses. This way you stay cool while looking beautiful. If you are getting married on the beach, consider not wearing any shoes. This is because the easiest way to walk on the beach is barefoot. Save the fancy heels for the reception later on.

Anticipate Changes

When planning to have a wedding on a tropical island, it is best to always expect that things may not always go as you have planned. This should not worry you as most of these changes are usually too minor to change the course of the wedding. While some of these things might be corrected, things like weather change are outside your control and you just need to go with the flow.

Get Help

If you are putting together a wedding in Turks and Caicos, it is a very good idea to hire a wedding planner to help you put it together. There are some very good reasons to do this. One is the fact that unless you are a local in the islands, wedding planners will probably know where to get what supplies at good prices. They are also familiar with venues and can quickly narrow down the venues for you based on what you are looking for.
