Why Turks and Caicos Makes a Great Destination Wedding Venue

Posted in Travel and Destinations

Suffice to say, there are few places more romantic, majestic and fairytale-come-true to marry than in an English Country House. One of those few places though, at least for those looking for an extra special destination wedding to blow all others out the water, is definitely the tropical paradise that is Turks and Caicos – and here is why.

The Weather

Millions of Brits spend hours attempting to plan their weddings in the English summer months and work out when they can best guarantee a sunny day. Unfortunately, when the wedding in good old Blighty, sun is one thing that can never be guaranteed – and summer 2016 has definitely been one to prove that!

In contrast, those who opt for a destination wedding in Turks and Caicos can plan their wedding at any time of the year, even in the middle of winter, and still bank on a day in which the sun turns up to grace their celebrations; enjoying average temperatures of: between 80 and 90 degrees (29-32 degrees Celsius) from June to October, sometimes reaching the mid 90’s (35 degrees Celsius), especially in the late summer months. From November to May the average temperature is 80 to 84 degrees (27-29 degrees Celsius). Water temperature in the summer is 82 to 84 degrees (28-29 degrees Celsius) and in winter about 74 to 78 degrees (23-26 degrees Celsius)’, as reported by the Turks and Caicos Tourism website, Turks and Caicos makes a summer wedding a year-round possibility.

The Shores, Sands and Sea

Every year millions of Brits flee the country and take to the air in search of sun, sand and sea. Despite the fact that we live on an island, the fact that we do so in a location which is hit daily by the jet stream thrown off from the gigantic North Atlantic ocean ensures that the days we can hope to enjoy on the beach – even in summer, are few and far between. And very few, if any, weddings take place on British beaches…and for good reason.

In contrast, due to the temperate weather enjoyed in TCI and fact that it occupies numerous coral islands and cays all glittering like little gems within crystal clear Caribbean waters, those who opt to wed there do so knowing that they will be soon enough saying ‘I do’ in a real life paradise.

Further, TCI’s shores are not only graced daily and year round by sun, but due to fact that TCI is home to one of the world’s largest coral reef barrier systems, nature itself keeps its white sandy shores white and sandy all year round. These combining features are no doubt the reason that TCI’s Grace Bay Beach has more than once now been voted by the Trip Advisor Traveller Choice Awards 2016, as the best beach on the face of the whole planet.

The Venues

Recognizing the desire many couples who haven’t the fortune to live in a real life Caribbean paradise have to wed somewhere as hot as their love for their significant other, resorts such as the Beach House TCI, offer what is and has been already for thousands the perfect mix of sun, sand and suites to ensure myriads of Brits every year say ‘I do’ both to and so in TCI.

Situated on the lip of the world’s best beach and as such in the popular locale of Grace Bay, the Beach House TCI resort occupies an impressive colonial mansion house. Inside is split into self-contained luxury suite accommodations, with many suites boasting epic views over Grace Bay Beach. Further, as part of their tailorable wedding packages, the Beach House TCI is happy to cater for up to a staggering 125 of your nearest and dearest. Hence, this is one TCI resort which really does welcome wedding couples with open arms – very open arms, in fact.

Meanwhile, if a traditional TCI style mansion house venue fails to wow you, the Alexandra Resort might perhaps tick your boxes. Aesthetically, a more modern and less boutique but equally equipped resort, the nearby Alexandra resort is too situated on the island of Providenciales. Further, those who wed at the Alexandra can actually wed on Grace Bay beach’s very own white sands, as explained in further via the Alexandra Resort website. So, for a once in a lifetime holiday and to wed on the best beach in the whole wide world, a TCI wedding is a must – literally, as no other beach on earth rivals that of Grace Bay’s.
