a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos: The Couple

The Benefits of Hosting a Destination Wedding in Turks and Caicos: Getting Married at the Tuscany Resort on Grace Bay Beach

Wedding planning can be extremely overwhelming:

From organizing your ideas and diplomatically managing the input of well-meaning family and friends, to choosing a location, the perfect dress, and making timely decisions on all the fine details that go into your big day… It’s no wonder why couples find the year leading up to their weddings so stressful. It’s also the reason why more couples are choosing to host a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos:

When mulling over options for what will be one the biggest milestone moments in your lives, consider the benefits of hosting a destination wedding at the beautiful Tuscany resort in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos:

All-in-One Location

Many couples who start out imagining a hometown wedding end up choosing a destination wedding instead. This scenario typically occurs a few months into planning their hometown wedding, upon the realization that the locations they initially had in mind either aren’t available, cannot accommodate their parties, require too much decorating, or involve a complicated commute between the ceremony, photos and reception. 

Let’s face it: coordinating everything quickly becomes work!

Coordinating decorators, chair rentals, music, caterers, bar staff, floral arrangements, shuttles, commutes, and photoshoot locations can quickly become a part time job on top of all the other things you have to think about leading up to your wedding day. Enjoying a dreamy destination wedding in Turks and Caicos quickly becomes an attractive option. 

Imagine hosting a dreamy, beachfront wedding ceremony before being whisked away for breathtaking wedding photos at the Tuscany resort’s beautiful resort grounds, or on one of the most breathtaking beaches in the world!

Now imagine an intimate wedding reception that includes dinner and cocktails against the backdrop of a crimson, Caribbean sunset before you, your beloved and your favourite people dance the night away under the stars.

When your backdrop is pinkish-white, sparkling sand and vivid turquoise waters, you don’t need to fuss over a plethora of decorations to create ambiance. Mother nature has taken care of most of those major details for you!

The Tuscany resort on Grace Bay Beach offers couples an ideal all-in-one destination that’s perfect for your rehearsal party, ceremony, wedding photos, reception and even your honeymoon! Our beachfront resort and surrounding amenities make hosting a wedding day (or wedding week) more enjoyable and far less stressful than trying to divide your time, budget and resources between more than one location at home.

You can make your destination wedding in Turks and Caicos as elaborate as you desire:

At the Tuscany, we’ve hosted weddings with themes that range from upscale, bohemian-influenced affairs with barefoot ceremonies and beach parties, to positively posh celebrations with breathtaking local florals, live bands and formal ceremonies with all the trimmings. The possibilities are endless and made easier because everything is hosted at a single, ideal and accommodating location. 

Adding to the convenience, wedding guests that have enjoyed too many libations to drive can safely walk up to their rooms at the end of the night. 

Focuses Your Guest List and Brings Everyone Together

The Wedding Party and Guests

Your guest list can get out of hand pretty quickly:

If you’re working within a budget, the guest list is one key area that you and partner will have to carefully deliberate. There’s your wedding party, your closest friends, your family. Then there’s coworkers, friends who are sort of close but whom you haven’t seen since your school days. Now consider your guests bringing a guest (or guests) along with them. A rapidly expanding guest list determines the size of the venues you’ll need for the ceremony and reception, the seating and table arrangements as well as how many waitstaff, bar staff and food you’ll need.

Of course, trimming your guest list can be equally stressful when you realize you may not be able to invite everyone whom you and your partner would love to include. There’s also the potential for hurt feelings and awkward conversations when you feel you have to explain yourself to friends and extended family members who feel left out. 

One of the easiest ways around this while still being able to enjoy a formal wedding affair is to host a destination wedding:

Naturally, not everyone will be able to attend, and more often than not, those who do are the couples’ closest friends and family. It results in a more intimate wedding celebration, frees up more time and budget to spend on food and other details, and affords couples more quality time to spend with their guests. 

Extends Your Wedding Celebrations

A married friend has probably already told you that your big day will go by in a flash!

After several months of planning over every gruelling detail, the big day arrives and ends in what feels like a whimsical flash. Worth it? For sure, but why can’t fun times such as your big day feel as long as a day at the office? 

It’s true that “time flies when we’re having fun,” but imagine spreading that fun over the course of a a few days instead of just one:

Imagine: paddleboarding, kayaking, and snorkeling the barrier reef with friends; beach bonfires and parties following happy hour at da Conch Shack nearby; spa days and golf games followed by an evening of fine dining and cocktails the day before the wedding; hiring a local charter for a private sunset cruise or fishing excursion.

There’s a lot of adventure to be had together and it’s all extremely easy to do when your wedding party and guests are visiting an idyllic location like Turks and Caicos with you. 

Quite likely the key determining factor that makes couples choose to host a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos is how destination weddings bring you and your favourite people together in one place. It makes it easy for you and your loved ones to celebrate, not only on the big day of your wedding together,  but also offers plenty of perfect opportunities to extend the celebrations on the days leading up to and following the wedding day. 

Many couples choose to honeymoon here, too:

Sure, you could always host your wedding in Turks and Caicos and travel elsewhere for your honeymoon, but in all honesty, once you’re here, it’s likely you won’t want to leave. Voted one of the best destinations in the Caribbean, featuring some of the best beaches in the world, when you visit Providenciales, you’ll quickly discover what keeps bringing visitors back.
