Sandals Resorts has earned a worldwide reputation for providing two people in love with the most romantic holiday experience in the Caribbean.
From the beginning of January 2010 brides and grooms can book a destination wedding at any of the 18 Luxury Included® Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts across the Caribbean. With six exquisite wedding themes, in the most romantic settings, Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart feature coordinated colour palettes, beautifully designed wedding décor, complementary bouquets, invitations, cakes and favours, along with à la carte items, creating a memorable experience to suit every couple’s unique preferences.
“A wedding is one of the most special moments in a person’s life,” says Joann Delgin, Director of Romance, Sandals Resorts. “We are honoured to be a part of this new relationship with Martha Stewart, offering our couples six customisable experiences from one of the most internationally-known wedding experts.”
The six Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart themes include:
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 and delicate white orchids and gladiolas make up the bouquet. 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.
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.
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 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 of pink and fuchsia roses and magenta orchids that coordinate beautifully with the rest of the décor.
The Island Paradise wedding brings the soft, warm colours of a Caribbean summer evening to your celebration. Gorgeous orchids arranged in magenta, pink, orange, and yellow reflect the majestic 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.
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 white and green orchids, 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 cymbidium orchids, the Chic & Natural wedding guarantees you’ll start your new life together in style.
The Beautiful Beginnings wedding helps you celebrate your special day with elegance and simplicity. It includes a sweet magenta dendrobium 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. For couples who book a minimum six-night wedding stay in a concierge category or higher at any Sandals Resort or Beaches Resort*, the Beautiful Beginnings will be included at no additional cost.
In addition to the six exquisite wedding themes, couples have the opportunity to enhance their destination wedding with à la carte Finishing Touches for the ceremony and reception. A variety of meaningful and unique style elements are available, including parasols to shield guests from the sun, a petal-strewn aisle lit by floating candles in large glass hurricanes, a candy buffet where guests can help themselves to sweet treats, a romantically lit evening on the beach for you and your guests, and a sand unity ceremony.
