Are you considering a destination wedding for your nuptials? There are so many amazing places that you can jet set to for your big day. We’re here to show you one of our absolute faves! We were lucky enough to be able to visit this killer wedding locale last year (by the way, how crazy is it so say that 2017 is LAST year?!). Thank you so much, Aisle Society! Not only did we get to spend some quality time with our best blogger babes, but we were able to see all that Sandals South Coast has to offer. This includes their recently launched Aisle to Isle experience; we will go into greater detail about below about what this includes. We know we’ve got you dreaming of a Sandals destination wedding already, but keep reading to find out 5 reasons why Sandals Jamaica is the perfect destination wedding location.
Location, Location, Location!
Along with the ever-popular beach, garden and gazebo locations, exciting new ceremony and reception venues will be available as part of the Aisle is Isle launch, including off-site locations for exclusive photo shoots; a dedicated, newly renovated chapel at Sandals Montego Bay; the first-ever over-the-water chapels in the Caribbean, located in Saint Lucia and Jamaica; and the chance to elevate a beach or garden wedding with a twilight-timed nuptial and unity sand ceremony. They are also now offering an over-the-water wedding chapel with breathtaking 360-degree, panoramic water views and a glass floor aisle. We can’t think of anything more breathtaking for your wedding ceremony!
For a stress free wedding planning process from afar, Sandals offers their Wedding Entourage. This is a team of expert event planners who assist with all things planning. This includes resort selection, venue scheduling, on-site logistics and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay. They also have suggestions for welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings and other activities.
Amenities & Accommodations
All weddings at Sandals Resorts are super inclusive! Whether you have five guests or 50 you are treated like royalty. Some of the perks 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, personalized wedding website, personalized gift registry, honeymoon dinner, breakfast in bed and 1 5×7” wedding photograph. Whew! As if that wasn’t enough… wedding couples are also given additional incentives for extending their time in paradise. Couples who stay six nights or longer receive resort credits valued at more than $1,500; and any couple staying three or more nights may opt for Mokara orchid-inspired free wedding that includes Mokara bouquet, boutonniere and cake topper.
The more guests that join the celebration with booked rooms, the more bells and whistles and tangible rewards couples will earn. For example, couples who have 12 booked guest rooms will receive $1,000 towards a catamaran cruise, a room upgrade and a two-minute wedding trailer video. Don’t we all love a good upgrade or special perks during our wedding celebration? Sandals does it up big!
Design & Décor
Sandals Resorts has created eight new inspirations for their Aisle to Isle experience. They are 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. Not only do they have amazing choices, but your Wedding Entourage takes care of everything. It’s the perfect stress free planning situation!
Food & Drink
One thing we hear a lot from brides and grooms is that food is super important at their wedding. We totally get that! We like to consider ourselves foodies as well. Have no fear! There are tons of options for you at the Sandals resorts! With 9 restaurants and 7 bars, you won’t be disappointed in the cuisine her. Don’t forget to check out the new Jerk Shack and Sushi on the Sand. Our moths are watering just looking at the photos and reminiscing on all of the delish bites we got to try!
Also, don’t miss out on Sandals’ first dedicated over-the-water bar called Latitudes. Here, guests can enjoy their cocktails in hammocks suspended above the Caribbean Sea. How amazing is that? Talk about relaxation!
Now that you know about Sandals South Coast, book your dream destination wedding! We had a killer time and we know that you will too!
