Dream Destination Wedding : Sandals and Beaches Resorts

Destination weddings have become a popular option for couples planning their big day. A wedding on a beautiful tropical island doesn't sound too bad does it? Sandals and Beaches Resort is one of my favorite destination wedding venues for so many reasons. Their entire focus is on pampering and romance! Isn't that what every couple hopes for when planning a wedding? They take you from isle to aisle!

Get to know Sandals

Sandals and Beaches Resorts set the standard for luxury all-inclusive resorts with so many inclusions that are part of your stay. Did you know that if you book a stay of at least three days that you could have a free wedding? It’s true! This applies to all kinds of weddings- large destination weddings, elopements and even retying the knot.

Sandals is a romantic destination which are for couples only. There are sixteen resorts on six different Caribbean islands. Each one is unique and has it’s own flavor so you can choose the right one to reflect you. Want a wedding in a real chapel? There is a beautiful one tucked away in the lush foliage of Sandals Montego Bay. It has a traditional feel, with wood pews and stained glass windows. How about something unique? Sandals South Coast Jamaica and Grande St. Lucia have brand new, over the water venues with glass floors for your ceremony. Some of the other options are: a garden wedding, beachfront, and an oceanfront gazebo. Each is unique and beautiful!

Beaches Resorts

If there are children and families which are part of your special day, Beaches is the sister resort of Sandals which is for families. There are two Beaches on Jamaica and another on Turks and Caicos. Jamaica has both a Beaches Resort and seven different Sandals Resorts to choose from. On these islands, some of your party can stay at Sandals while others stay at Beaches and everyone can be part of your special day. You can have your ceremony at a Beaches Resort and then spend your honeymoon at the Sandals of your choice. Or stay at more than one resort- it’s up to you!

A Free Wedding!

To qualify for a free wedding package, you just need to book a three night or longer stay. The more rooms that are booked with your wedding, and the more nights you stay, the more “bells and whistles” you can add to your wedding for free. The free wedding package includes everything you need:

Personal wedding planning team

Preparation of marriage documents

Wedding and Honeymoon Gift Registry

Free wedding website

30 Minute foot massage

Manicure for the bride

Ceremony location

Bride’s bouquet and Groom’s boutineer

Unlimited seating

Pre recorded music of your choice

Reception with wedding cake

Cocktail reception with signature cocktail for Bride and Groom and hors d’oerves

5x7 wedding photo

And more!

If the included wedding is not your style, you can choose to use a $500 credit towards customizing your wedding. Every detail is up to you! It can be as simple or as extravagant as you choose. You can have modern, traditional, a garden theme, or nautical- basically anything you can imagine.

Your own personal wedding planner!

Included with your wedding is your own personal planning team. Weddings can be complicated and there are legal requirements so your planner will make sure every detail is taken care of. They will help you plan every part of your special day from the ceremony to your reception. It's all is up to you.

And then the honeymoon......

The best part of a destination wedding is that you are already on your honeymoon! No saying goodbye to friends and family to rush off. No stress, no worries! These great resorts take care of you as you transition from wedding to honeymoon. Part of your wedding package includes breakfast in bed and turn down service to make you feel pampered. You and your spouse will be treated to a white-glove service dinner in a specialty restaurant just for the two of you.

There are so many wonderful touches they provide that it's impossible to cover them all!
