5 Reasons to Choose Turks & Caicos for your Destination Wedding

In recent years the concept of a destination wedding has skyrocketed in the UK. The appeal of saying your vows with white sand between your toes and clear blue skies above your head is an easy draw when you consider the unpredictable nature of the Great British weather.

The problem plenty of couples have however is that there are simply too many beautiful options available around the globe.

From South East Asia to the Caribbean, from the South Pacific to the Mediterranean, the potential list of locations for a picturesque wedding are almost endless.

To help narrow down the search substantially, we’d like to point you in the direction of the Turks & Caicos islands, situated in the Caribbean.

This stunning collection of islands have plenty going for them, so here are just five reasons why you should be making them your number one choice for your destination wedding.

Destination Wedding

Their Beaches

As already mentioned, there are any number of picturesque locations available around the world, making it extremely difficult to choose between them.

Thankfully Turks & Caicos have one natural stand-out feature that sets them apart from the rest, that is of course their unrivalled beaches.

In 2015, Green Bay Beach on the island of Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos was voted the number one beach in the world by Trip Advisor.

The question is, why settle for second best when you can tie the knot on the Earth’s best beach, as voted by the general public?

Their Popularity

No matter whether you have your wedding in Blackpool or Barbados, one of the key things to make the day truly special is that you’re in the company of your family and friends.

Something which can really put a dampener on the day is it in any way being affected by any outside forces, be it another wedding or just a particularly rowdy group of holiday makers.

This disruption could well become a problem if you head to one of the more well known holiday destinations, but thankfully not in Turks & Caicos.

According to Traveller’s Digest, Turks & Caicos is only the 10th most popular islands in the whole of the Caribbean, with an average of just over 350,000 each year.

This is in stark contrast to number one in that list the Dominican Republic, which has more than 4.3 million visitors each year.

Ultimately what this means is in comparison to many stunning locations, Turks & Caicos is relatively untouched and therefore you are much less likely to be disrupted by ay outside forces during your time there.

Their Resorts

Another defining feature of a destination wedding is of course the place in which you stay and have the ceremony.

Not only will this be the very place you tie the knot, but it will be the place captured for the rest of your lives in the wedding photos, so you need to pick somewhere pretty special.

Thankfully, Turks & Caicos has a number of fantastic resorts for you to choose from which are large enough for you to enjoy even the most elaborate wedding, but small enough to feel personal, something massively important to couples on their big day.

Places like the Alexandra Beach Resort or the Beach House resort offer full wedding packages which can include things like beach ceremonies, onsite photographers, facilities to host over 100 people and plenty more.

So if you want the ultimate destination wedding, there really isn’t anywhere quite like these type of resorts.

Regular Clientele

You can make certain assumptions on a destination simply by the types of people who frequent it.

For example, if you fancy surrounding yourself with UK ex-pats then you will feel very comfortable spending time in Benidorm, Spain.

Turks & Caicos is actually a very popular destination for the world’s A-list celebrities, with some even getting hitched there.

Back in 2005, Ben Affleck and Jenifer Garner got hitched there, whilst more recently it was the destination for Bruce Willis’s wedding with model Emma Heming in 2009.

The islands have also been known to be regular holiday destinations for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Zach Efron, Penelope Cruz and Julia Roberts but to name a few. So if it’s ok for the top brass, it must be pretty good.

It’s a Great Honeymoon Destination

While many people find a stunning place to hold their wedding, they often head elsewhere for their honeymoon. In Turks & Caicos there is no need.

There is so much to do and enjoy on the islands, be it water sports, sea life, delicious cuisine, sunbathing and much much more.

Also, just imagine the smug feeling you will get as your friends and family head back home as you stay behind for another week or more in paradise.
