With Chicago winter in full swing, I can’t help but wish for the sunshine and tropical breezes of gorgeous Jamaica. Earlier this year I had the privilege of visiting the spectacular Sandals South Coast with Aisle Society, and y’all, it was absolutely paradise. If you’re dreaming of a Caribbean destination wedding, there are no resorts more lovely (or stress-free!) than Sandals Resorts. We were treated to an exclusive preview of Sandals’ new Aisle to Isle experience, and let me tell you, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Featuring 8 all-new, luxurious choices inspired by the tropics, gardens, romance, passion, nature, and sand and sea, each Aisle to Isle design offers absolutely swoon-worthy attention to detail and a destination wedding experience like no other. From personalized wedding dÃ©cor to authentic events, Sandals’ Aisle to Isle concept is fully customizable and will deliver any couple’s dream wedding in paradise. Oh, and you and your guests will enjoy a completely blissful, all-inclusive Caribbean vacation experience too. Trust me, a visit to Sandals is basically heaven.
So, what are the perks of a destination wedding, you ask?
Couples who choose Sandals report that they are choosing a destination wedding because they turn a traditional one-day soiree into a multi-day vacation with their closest friends and family. And Sandals makes the planning completely hassle-free, by offering couples their own “weddings entourage”, a team of expert planners who assist with resort selection, venue scheduling, on-site logistics, and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay. The team will also have suggestions for welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings and other activities.
All weddings at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts–whether five guests or 50–include a one-hour cocktail reception, signature cocktail, the ‘wedding entourage’ of expert planners, spa goodies like a manicure and 30-minute foot massage, personalized wedding website and gift registry, honeymoon dinner, breakfast in bed and more. The new Aisle to Isle program also has expanded photo and video resources (we all know the pictures and video capturing those treasured memories is EVERYTHING). Couples can choose from a number of new photo and video packages including drone capture; a wedding day photo booth, island photography tours to some of the Caribbean’s most iconic locations, and can even elect to bring their own photographer!
Sandals and Beaches feature 18 resorts on 7 stunning Caribbean islands, and feature the first over-water chapels in the Caribbean.
