Sandals Resorts all but invented the all-inclusive destination wedding package. In fact, they coined the term, "weddingmoon." The company is the largest all-inclusive resort operator in the Caribbean, with 12 resorts -- seven in Jamaica, three in St. Lucia, one in Antigua, and one in Nassau, in the Bahamas. All Sandals resorts are designed for couples only.
The basic Sandals package includes a choice of accommodations (from a basic room to a deluxe, private cottage or a well-appointed suite complete with butler service), all meals, bar drinks and wine, a variety of water sports and other activities, nightly entertainment, transportation to and from the airport, and all taxes and service charges.
For wedding couples, Sandals offers a variety of pre-planned packages that include the services of a local officiant, the wedding site, a Caribbean wedding cake, flowers for the bride and groom, and all of the paperwork. But that's just the beginning. Sandals employs a team of wedding planners at each resort that can customize your wedding to suit your taste and budget. They also partner with Preston Bailey, Oprah's party planner, to offer coordinated theme weddings and other upgrades. For wedding couples spending at least six nights at a Sandals resort, the company offers a complimentary set of Waterford china.
