Thinking about getting married in Caribbean? We highly recommend Sandals resorts, Part 2

Hi Guys, thanks for coming back for Part 2 of my luxury Caribbean experience with Sandals®.

I am very proud to say that I am now a Sandals® Certified WeddingMoons® specialist, having completed the Sandals® course with flying colours in July 2014. A special thanks to Marsha-Ann Brown, Director of Romance for SandalsResorts, BeachesResorts and WeddingMoons®, who guided me during my training.

During the course we were trained on the various packages Sandal’s offer to their wedding couples, the booking process and all the documentation. I loved hearing about the latest trends in destination weddings and honeymoons in the Caribbean.

Did you know, for instance, that the trend colour of the year is Radiant Orchid? This is a shade of purple with fuchsia and pink undertones, and it was announced that the 2014 Colour of the Year by Pantone, the leading authority on the hues used in paint, fabrics and manufacturing.

Now those of you familiar with Stylish Events will know that our company logo is an orhcid and, coincidentaly, it’s purple. So we are bang on trend for 2014!

Sandals® really want their couples to make the most of all the features WeddingMoons® has to offer. For instance, there are great benefits when booking a group wedding. If you book 5 rooms for just 3 nights, they offer one room Category upgrade for the Bride & Groom, Pedicure for the bride, and a 1 hour delightful reception with cold Hors d’ oeuvres, Sparkling Wine and Signature Cocktail for the Group. There are many more benefits available depending on the size of your group such as a massage for the Groom, a pre-wedding celebratory dinner, a 1 hour upgraded Classic reception and even a full wedding dinner, for further details, please click here. They even offer promotions such as a Free room, depending on your travel dates which means that bride and groom can often stay and marry for free!

In my personal opinion, the most exсiting offer is “Ultra Fantastic Weddingmoon Sailabration” Catamaran Cruise”. Can you imagine your guests on the Catamaran partying the night away? For all details and conditions, please click here.

We love Carribbean weddings at Stylish Events. Our Director, Dominique, has organised weddings there in the past. One of her favourites was lovely Alisha and Brian, who got married in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2012.

Alisha and Brian invited 70 family and friends from the UK to join them at their wedding. Working with Alisha for 18 months, we designed every aspect of the wedding together. Just about every design element of the wedding; from the styling, table decor and printed materials, was bought in the UK and transported to Jamaica – in Alisha and Dominique’s suitcases! It was a great honour to be involved in this very special wedding in a magical place for such delightful clients.

“We would like to thank Dominique and her team for organising such an amazing wedding in the Caribbean, we can’t praise you enough for all the work you have done. You are now a lifelong friend of both of us.”

Dominique was lucky enough to be asked by Alisha and Brian to travel to Jamaica with them to oversee the wedding and ensure that it was exactly how they wanted it to be. For some couples it would be difficult to find the money in their budget to take their wedding planner with them to a destination wedding.

However, Sandals® can offer free accommodation for your wedding planner, which is amazing! This ensures that we can be there every step of the way to assist you with the finer details of your dream location wedding.

Of course, whether you have a wedding planner or not, Sandals® have their own in house wedding planners, who are always on hand to assist you with everything you need.

Sandals® resorts are made for couples in love and their resorts provide amazing places on their properties to tie the knot. Just look at the array of wedding Gazebos where you can choose to be married:

I also loved hearing about the amazing Butler Service, which is available in Sandal’s very highest level suites. In particular, their Love Nest Suites. It costs a little bit more, but if your budget can stretch to it, I definitely recommend it, even for a few days after your wedding.

Butler service is unforgettable experience. At Sandals® resorts your very own butler will not only provide private check-in, offer to unpack your luggage, bring you snacks anywhere in the resort, arrange dinners and parties but will arrange more special and personal things for you.

I was told a real story about Sandal’s butler service: There was a guest who requested to have breakfast on their balcony each morning (usually delivered by room service). On the last day before their departure their butler located a ladder, climbed up to their balcony (on the third floor) and lay breakfast out. He then called the guests in the telephone and asked them to open their balcony door. They were speechless when they saw the butler on the balcony with breakfast elegantly arranged for them.

I had an amazing time in Jamaica, and I would like to say thank you once again to everyone who organised the trip

Special thanks to:

Marsha-Ann Brown, Director of Romance for SandalsResorts, BeachesResorts and WeddingMoons®, for an informative and energetic seminar.

Andre Wade, Director of Industry Relations at Unique Vacations Inc. and Jeffrey Burke, Sales Manager of Sandals Whitehouse, for entertaining and taking such great care of us.

And of course, I would like to send my love to Kerrie-Anne Ford, UK Weddings Supervisor and Certified WeddingMoon® Specialist, for making this trip happen and being such an amazing host!

Thanks to UKAWP for giving us this wonderful opportunity once again. Of course it’s one of the main benefits of being a member.
