Total Destination Wedding Goals with Sandals Resorts

January 31, 2018 White House, Jamaica

With these odd snow days and up-and-down temperatures here in Virginia, a lot of us are just begging for a change of scenery, preferably of the turquoise and emerald green variety. And Jamaica sure does hit the cabin fever spot! Last winter, the ladies of Aisle Society were whisked away to Jamaica to get to know the all-new "Aisle to Isle" wedding collection experience at Sandals South Coast. And today, our editor-in-chief Chelsea is sharing her top four favorite reasons why to consider tying the knot and celebrating your honeymoon together in the Caribbean... especially when it's cold here and oh so tropical perfect there in Jamaica!

Beautiful Backdrops for Every Style

Whether you're a toes in the sand, nautical chic, or glamorous garden kind of person, there is literally a destination wedding ceremony spot just for you. Lush green garden setting at Sandals? Yep! Their Jamaican properties are beautifully diverse, especially at Sandals South Coast that has not only whimsical garden dreams but also the Caribbean's first over-the-water chapel. So what if you want a beach reception but envision a traditional church ceremony? You can actually do that at Sandals Montego Bay in their gorgeous newly renovated chapel just for wedding ceremonies. And of course, there is always the exquisite beachfront view right along the shoreline for those "salty hair, don't care" vibes.

Beyond Pinterest Made Personal

Say goodbye to cookie cutter wedding packages! Sandals Resorts' new "Aisle to Isle" destination wedding experiences are all about personalization. Featuring eight, all new décor inspirations, enhanced options for food and beverage and new ceremony and reception venues, "Aisle to Isle" was created to give couples endless choices influenced by the tropics, gardens, romance, passion, the islands, sophistication, nature, and sand and sea. Each offers creative suggestions for brides and grooms planning their dream weddings in paradise from tabletop details, flowers, chairs, unique altars, and more. One of my personal favorites that I couldn't stop swooning over is one of their glamorous beach ceremony setups with giant white tassels hanging from a pergola. It was an editor's dream to see something so trend-forward and perfect for couples who want to take it up a notch!

Literally Aisle to Isle

After you say I Do, it's totally honeymoon time in the form of sights, sounds, and eats! With a mission for spoiling and charming couples against the backdrop of Jamaican sunshine and Caribbean waters, Sandals South Coast in Whitehouse, Jamaica is the quintessential getaway for nature and relaxation lovers with a heart for all things tropical. From overwater villas to two miles of natural beach coastline, the scenery alone will romance all your senses. It's not hard to do when the resort is nestled in a 500-acre nature preserve, pelicans are bobbing on the water and swooping for fish, and the painted sunsets are some of the very best in the world! Beyond the landscape, guests find very accommodating chefs who create delicious treats specialized to their food allergy or dietary restrictions and resort staff who truly embody the friendliness and joie de vivre of their beautiful home country of Jamaica.

More Experience, Less Stress

Many Sandals' couples report they are choosing destination weddings because they dream about turning a traditional five-hour celebration to a multi-day wedding experience... and we confirm it! Many Tidewater and Tulle readers place a huge emphasis on the experience of a wedding day than most anything else and many do host wedding weekends, especially if a majority of guests are coming from out of town. Well, Sandals is aiming to woo you by making this extended experience easier by offering couples their own "weddings entourage," a team of expert planners who will assist with resort selection, venue scheduling, on-site logistics, and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay. This team will also be able to customize suggestions for "beyond the big day" like welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings, and other activities. Winning on so many levels! (P.S. Have a day-after brunch at South Coast's over-the-water bar, Latitudes! You won't regret it. Large hammocks over the ocean, custom bites, and relaxation at its best is just what the post-wedding doctor ordered.)
