When planning your Turks and Caicos beach wedding you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to romantic, luxurious accommodations for you and your guests. Aqua Divina is a top choice luxury villa mere steps from Leeward beach and walking distance to the world-famous Grace Bay Beach.
But there is more to planning the perfect beach wedding than finding the ideal romantic luxury villa. If you are planning your tropical beach wedding in this lover’s paradise, there are a lot of factors to consider for your dream destination wedding. If you are wondering when is the best time to travel to Turks and Caicos for your dream wedding, take a look at our insider tips for a picture-perfect destination wedding in Turks and Caicos.
Why Choose Turks and Caicos For Your Beach Wedding
Home to one of the top-rated beaches in the world- Grace Bay Beach- Turks and Caicos is considered to be one of the best beach wedding destinations in the Caribbean.
The Turks and Caicos Islands have also received the celebrity seal of approval as a top destination wedding location, with stars like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Bruce Willis and Emma Heming, and Bryan Ferry and Amanda Sheppard choosing Grace Bay to tie the knot.
If the hustle and bustle of Grace Bay Beach sounds too frantic for your beach wedding, then beating the crowds to find a secluded beach is easy in this lovers’ paradise.
Long Bay beach is the ideal location for those adventurous couples looking to add some adrenalin to their beach weddings. This beach is the number one watersports beach in the Turks and Caicos and if zipping into your wedding ceremony on a jet ski instead of walking down the aisle sounds like your ideal wedding entrance, Long Bay Beach is definitely for you!
On the other hand, if complete privacy and seclusion is what you imagine for your big day, set your sights on Malcolm Beach. This secluded beach is hardly ever considered crowded or busy and its 1.3 miles of idyllic white sand is sure to provide the perfect sunset wedding venue.
If a mix of both is what you are after, Leeward Beach is your ideal beach wedding location. Leeward Beach is close enough to all the action and amenities of the main drag of Grace Bay Beach, yet far enough away to feel secluded and private.
Leeward beach is also just steps away from the serene Aqua Divina villas. Aqua Divina’s accommodations range from one to eight bedrooms in expansive open-concept villas or a romantic double-bed studio, all set in pristine grounds overlooking the Caribbean Ocean
Aqua Divina is one of the best Turks and Caicos wedding resorts, located in Leeward Settlement, on the main island of Providenciales. This area is less populated than the famous streets surrounding Grace Bay Beach, allowing you unrestricted access to secluded, quiet white-sand beaches, whilst still being just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Grace Bay Beach with its luxurious dining and shopping, giving you and your wedding guests the best of both worlds!
Best Time of Year to Get Married in Turks and Caicos
There are two main factors to consider when it comes to the best time for a beach wedding in Turks and Caicos: Price and weather.
The sweet spot between price, weather and also beating the crowds for a Turks and Caicos wedding is between April and June. These months are considered the peak wedding season, as accommodation and flight prices have dropped following the peak tourist season of December to March.
Average temperatures during this time range between 84F to 87F with rain at a minimum.
If you have a big budget or if you plan months in advance, then the best months to get married on the beach are December to March. Weather wise this is the best time of year to visit the islands as temperatures peak around 75F with minimal to no rain. However, planning a wedding during peak tourist season will be pricey and crowded and finding your ideal secluded beach might be a little bit tricky.
However, the absolute best months for a beach wedding in Turks and Caicos are April and May. This is when you’ll experience amazing weather without the crowds and high price tags and have a minimum chance of weather disruptions to your big day.
Even though the islands feature year-round enjoyable temperatures and ample sunshine, it’s best to avoid booking your big day in the summer months from June to November. This is peak hurricane season in the Caribbean and statistically, most hurricanes happen in August and September, so either avoid these months altogether or plan for the possibility of weather mishaps.
No matter the season, the best time for a beach wedding is anytime at Aqua Divina’s luxury villas. Aqua Divina will be able to offer you and your wedding guests the best prices all year round for your big day and beyond.
The slowest Months For beach Weddings In Turks And Caicos
June 1st marks the beginning of the hurricane season in the Atlantic, which officially ends on November 30th. For obvious reasons this will be the slowest and cheapest months to book your Turks and Caicos wedding, but be warned, as you could have flight delays and severe storms or even a hurricane interrupting your big day!
If you are on a budget for your dream destination wedding, July to November will by far be the cheapest months to plan your Turks and Caicos wedding. But planning your wedding during these months come with the risk of having severe summer storms or even hurricanes putting a damper on your big day.
If you are willing to take the risk, you will be rewarded with discounted accommodation and flight prices, but you will have to make sure that you have an indoor backup wedding venue in case of summer storms.
If you are looking to save some money and not book your wedding during peak hurricane wedding, look into planning a mid-week wedding instead of on a weekend, as this will also dramatically decrease the cost of your wedding.
Booking your wedding stay at Aqua Divina during the week instead of over a weekend is another great option to save some money on your big day.
The Best Time Of Day For A Beach Wedding In Turks And Caicos
It might sound a little bit unconventional, but the best time for a beach wedding is early morning, from 8am to 10:30 am. Yes, this requires an early wakeup call to get ready, but you and your guests will be rewarded with soft golden early morning light and comfortable temperatures, as well as beating the crowds to the beach.
Another perk of having an early morning wedding is that you can plan on having some fun island activities for your guests before the wedding ceremony. Booking a boat tour for your guests to explore some of the many cays and lagoons surrounding Providenciales is a great way to keep them entertained while you get your wedding photos done.
If an early wakeup call sounds like complete misery on your big day, rather opt for a late afternoon wedding. Although the beaches will be more crowded, temperatures will be comfortable, and if you are planning a Grace Bay Beach wedding, the sun will be perfectly framing the moment you say I do!
Whether you chose a sunset wedding on Grace Bay, an action-packed big day on Long Bay Beach or a serene spot to say I do on leeward Beach, the luxurious villas of Aqua Divina will have you staying close to the action without all the noisy crowds of a resort on the main drag by Grace Bay.
