Create a romantic beach ceremony with Sandals’ new destination wedding tool
Caribbean specialists Sandals Resorts have sent the pre-packaged wedding format sailing off into the sunset and replaced it with a genius new online tool called Your Wedding, Your Style. Hundreds of ideas – from flowers and cakes to entertainment and table linen – have been uploaded onto the Sandals site and categorised into eight colour palettes, from Bushed Coral and Sea Glass to Kiwi and Fuchsia. To start imagining what your destination wedding might look like, all you have to do is register (it’s free), choose a combination of complementary colours and begin pulling up all the wedding details in your chosen palettes. At the same time, you can keep an eye on your wedding budget – substituting a smaller bouquet here or a cake that costs less there – until you get to a price point that makes you, and your groom, happy.
As couples who stay six nights or longer at Sandals automatically qualify for a free wedding, if you book a wedding using the new online tool, you’ll receive a credit for $500USD towards your custom-made celebration. With 13 all-inclusive resorts across the Caribbean, Sandals can’t guarantee that every island will offer every service (musical performers may vary, for instance), so the process asks you to nominate a resort before you start planning. Don’t panic, there’s absolutely no commitment to an island or a resort at this stage – this is just your chance to play wedding planner to your heart’s content! Think of it more as an inspirational online mood board to get your (tropical) juices flowing. If you do decide to go on and book a beachside ceremony, you’ll still get the full support of the Sandals Wedding Planner service to hold your hand until the big day.
