Under the Spotlight – Plan the Destination Wedding of Your Dreams with Sandals & Martha Stewart Weddings

I’ve got a slightly different kind of post for you today, sponsored by Sandals and Martha Stewart Weddings. I have to say, I got pretty darn excited when I received the call from these industry giants wanting to work with little old me!

Sandals have put together a series of three videos, following the story of a couple getting married in Jamaica using their service. The incredible Martha Stewart Weddings are working alongside them to style the weddings of their lucky clients too. The company were keen for me to be the lucky blog to share these fabulously made videos and I have to say my mind has certainly been changed as to what a ‘package destination wedding’ can really be. Doesn’t the whole wedding looks just totally divine? The couple were able to escape from it all and plan the intimate wedding they wanted – just for them – and that dear reader, is what being Rock n Roll is all about!

But what about the price? Well unbelievably having a wedding as luxurious as this one doesn’t have to rival the cost of the royal wedding. Sandals state that the price of the average destination wedding is just £6,585 but incredibly a Sandals wedding can actually be complimentary! They explain,

Sandals Resorts, the Caribbean’s leader in destination weddings, have broadened their existing ‘complimentary wedding’ offer, meaning that for a limited time, couples who book their WeddingMoon in a Premium room category at any of the 14 Luxury Included Sandals Resorts will receive a free* Beautiful Beginnings wedding by Martha Stewart! This fantastic offer replaces the previous requirement for the free wedding, whereby couples needed to book a Concierge room category or above to be eligible.”

They offer a wide range of locations including Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Lucia & Antigua. Each location offers you something different so you really can plan the destination wedding of your dreams!

  1. I love it when any one thinks outside of the box even my favorite blogs. This wedding is classic – so many will decide to have the “tropical” wedding theme when they engage in a destination wedding in Jamica- I love that this couple still had the wedding of their dreams- no matter where.

  2. my wedding was at sandals Antigua and it was perfect for me, so relaxing and so beautiful (we didn’t opt for any of the usual ‘decoration’ stuff because when you have a back-drop that beautiful who needs it?). also they were very accommodating about me being vegan and the staff were genuinely lovely- they were totally in love with my pink and blue hair! I would recommend them to anyone and I’m sure now you’re involved they are only going to get better x

  3. My wedding was at Sandals Montego Bay resort in Jamaica. We did the “Wedding Moon”, wedding and honeymoon all in one. Totally worth it and we loved every second of it!!!! Beautiful wedding pics compared to the traditional greenery trees and such backdrop.

    This offer does apply to US brides too! I booked my September 2012 wedding in St Lucia in april and just called today to take advantage of this promotion. The beautiful beginnings wedding is pretty basic, but any of the items in the other packages can be added to customize your ceremony and reception. You can also ship any of your DIY projects (table runners, numbers, decor, etc) I will be DIYing quite a bit to jazz up this simple setting. It’s great for brides who want to focus on the fun stuff (making, choosing and prepping)! Just be sure you’re ok with a few surprises – you won’t see your location for the ceremony or reception til you get there, no trial hair, etc.
