Best Months of the Year for Turks and Caicos Weddings
Just about any month of the year is perfect for tying the knot on Provo as the temperature doesn't vary too much from the summer to winter months. However, the low season months - April to October - tend to see a slight decrease in visitors and better rates for accommodations. If your wedding guests can travel during April or May, opt for this period for your nuptials.
Paperwork Requirements for Turks and Caicos Weddings
In preparation for marriage ceremonies in the Turks and Caicos Islands visitors must meet certain documentation requirements.
Visitors who plan to marry in Turks and Caicos must:
- Establish Temporary Residence in the Turks and Caicos by arriving in the country at least three business days prior to the wedding ceremony.
- Meet with Marriage Officiate to complete the Application for a Marriage License Form and Declarant Application Form 2 days before Turks and Caicos weddings can take place.
- Submit items like a formal marriage application, detailed personal declarations, photo identification and other documents which prove identity, divorce status, and cititzenship.

Turks and Caicos Weddings Custom-Made For You
Every couple has a different vision how their Turks and Caicos wedding day will look. Some see a small private gathering where vows are exchanged and relationships are celebrated. At The Palms this intimate wedding ceremony could be an event on Grace Bay Beach under a simple arch of flowers, driftwood or shells followed by a casual seafood dinner in one of the onsite restaurants.

Others choose to invite a larger group of family or friends and celebrate nuptials in grand style.
The Palms Messel Ballroom offers a spacious 2,000 square foot setting which accommodates up to 100 people. Designed by artist Oliver Messel, it offers elegance and style boasting white on white interior, Greek columns and flattened arches. The ballroom’s extensive terrace provides a perfect area for refreshments.
The lush Croquet Lawn is another wonderful venue. With a backdrop of the sea, and surrounded by tall green palms and beautifully manicured grass, it’s the perfect spot to say “I do”.
Later, everyone can enjoy a delicious dinner served on linen covered tables under crisp white tents. Or, how about celebrating under the stars on the beachside deck situated by a gorgeous infinity pool?
Here are some lovely wedding locations at The Palms.
