Wedding Options

Beautiful Beginnings

The Beautiful Beginnings wedding helps you celebrate your special day with elegance and simplicity. It includes a sweet bouquet and boutonniere, as well as a table for four with crisp linens, a lovely centrepiece, and a charming white cake. It's the perfect choice if you're looking for an intimate and memorable occasion. At Sandals & Beaches Resorts, your Beautiful Beginnings wedding theme is complimentary for stays of five nights or longer. If staying fewer than 5 nights, government and administrative fees apply.

Vision in White

The classic white wedding you've always envisioned takes on a dreamier quality when transported to a lush island setting. Hints of eyelet and lace grace every detail, from the party favours to the desserts. You have the choice of an elegant white cake or cupcakes, both decorated with doily accents. White pillar candles wrapped in eyelet fabric cast a soft, romantic glow over the reception table for an exquisite setting you'll remember for a lifetime.

Flutter of Romance

Create a day filled with joyful romance and a playful spirit when you choose the Flutter of Romance wedding. Pretty butterflies add a touch of whimsy to menus and place cards, and they also top the pale pink cake or round mini-cakes for a look that's charming and sweet. The bridal bouquet, boutonniere, and centrepieces are made up of rosy pink and red flowers that coordinate beautifully with the rest of the décor.

Seaside Serenade

Capture the romantic spirit of the ocean's sweet, flowing melody with the Seaside Serenade wedding, featuring accents inspired by the sun, sand, and surf of an island oasis. Exchange vows under a bamboo ceremony arch, strung with strands of capiz shells, then enjoy your reception at a beautiful table set with seashell, coral, and sand accents. You have the choice of an aqua fondant cake with white coral accents or cupcakes topped with white sugar seashells. Every delightful detail, in white, aqua, and coral, evokes the natural beauty of a seaside celebration.

Chic & Natural

The Chic & Natural wedding imbues your special day with a feeling of serene enchantment. Clean lines and organic elements set a tranquil tone that is modern and full of romantic charm. The ceremony and reception are accented with green cymbidiums, polished black river stones, vibrant green moss, and touches of natural linen. Whether you choose a pale green cake topped with a white camellia or cupcakes topped with small green cymbidiums, the Chic & Natural wedding guarantees you'll start your new life together in style.

Island Paradise

The Island Sunset wedding brings the soft, warm colours of a Caribbean summer evening to your celebration. Gorgeous orchids arranged in coral, yellow, and orange reflect the amber hues of a setting sky and evoke a feel of romantic tropical opulence. Lush banana leaves embellish the bamboo ceremony arch, while natural wood trays filled with tropical fruits and bright blooms serve as the centrepieces. The cake (or square mini-cakes) is trimmed with rattan pattern fondant and covered in fresh orchids for a delightfully Caribbean feel.

Terms and conditions apply

Providing the pinnacle of all-inclusive excellence in the Caribbean, Sandals Resorts provide ultra-all-inclusive escapes for couples in love. Luxurious accommodations, gourmet candlelit dining and gorgeous tropical settings on some of the world's most exquisite beaches in the Caribbean make Sandals Resorts ideal for holidaymakers who value true luxury.
