Beauty Matters: Inspired and Insta-Worthy Design
For brides, “the aesthetic is nearly everything,”. Sandals and Beaches Resorts has created eight new inspirations influenced by the tropics, gardens, romance, passion, the islands, sophistication, nature and sand and sea. Each offers creative suggestions for brides and grooms to plan their dream wedding in paradise from tabletop, floral accompaniment and setting, to runners, chair selection, altar and more. Complementing the design inspirations are enhanced food and beverage options including themed bar design, custom cocktails and expanded menu selections. From the dramatic flower-topped candelabras of White Romance to Love Is in Bloom’s insta-worthy floral walls to the shabby-chic Caribbean Breeze featuring driftwood spheres and white lanterns, there is a style for every personality and whim.
Destination Weddings Turn One Special Day into Multiple Days of Memories
Many brides report they are choosing destination weddings because they turn a traditional five-hour celebration to a days’ long affair. More time with family and friends is important and Sandals is making planning this extended experience easier, offering couples their own “wedding entourage,” a team of experts from planning to execution who will assist with resort selection, venue scheduling, on-site logistics and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay and honeymoon. This team will also have suggestions for welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings and other activities; and the more guests that join the celebration with booked rooms, the more bells and whistles – tangible rewards – couples will earn. For example, couples that have 12 booked guest rooms can choose from perks such as $1,000 towards a private catamaran cruise, a complimentary room upgrade, a two-minute wedding trailer video, and more.
All weddings at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, whether five guests or 50, include a one-hour cocktail reception, bride and groom signature cocktail, a pre-travel surprise gift, the ‘Wedding Entourage’ of expert planners, white Chivari chairs, manicure, 30-minute foot massage, personalised wedding website, personalised gift registry, honeymoon dinner, breakfast in bed and 1 5x7” wedding photograph. As an incentive to indulge in every aspect of the Luxury Included offerings at Sandals and Beaches, wedding couples are also given additional incentives for extending their time in paradise Couples who stay six nights or longer, receive gift credits valued at $1,500; and any couple staying three or more nights may opt for a Mokara orchid-inspired free wedding design that includes Mokara bouquet, boutonniere and two-tiered cake with Mokara orchid topper.
