I recently had the opportunity to be a guest at the Sandals Montego Bay & Royal Caribbean resorts in Jamaica to tour and meet the wedding planning staff. Christina Marie Events & Floral is so excited about the great relationship that has been created with the Sandals organization for our destination weddings. I am so impressed with their resorts and the services they offer, there is no other all inclusive resorts that has so many beach & water activities included in their pricing. The people in Jamaica are so friendly and accommodating that you feel welcomed & relaxed the entire time you are there. Their motto of "no problem" really carries into the wedding requests and level of service they provide!
Sandals has recently partnered with Martha Stewart weddings to create wedding packages that include everything you would need for your destination wedding. The packages include everything from the flowers, decor, and cakes to reception set up and really FUN centerpieces.
For the week I was there I watched over 15 weddings take place all over the resort and each one was so personal, beautiful and accompanied by great service. I saw every style of wedding from just the bride & groom to a guest list of 30 and everything in between. Every wedding was beautiful, well organized and romantic.
This is one of the gazebo's that has about a 40 foot walk out on the pier to get to it (ceremonies here are so remote and beautiful right on the water)
This is one of a few resorts out there that has a catholic church on it's grounds to accommodate those church services indoors. It is beautiful inside and out.
If you are looking for a beach side resort there are so many spots to choose from on the sunny warm sand!
There are so many benefits to doing your destination wedding at an all inclusive and with the assistance of a wedding planner. Sometimes the details between cultures, resorts, # of guests and expectations can be lost in translation. This is where the working relationship that I now have with both resorts and all of their staff will be so helpful and make the planning from afar easier. I am really excited about destination weddings at either of these resorts and can't wait to go back!
