There’s a bevy of news coming from Sandals Resorts on the wedding front, including the unveiling of the company’s (and the Caribbean’s) first overwater chapel and the launch of a new virtual wedding experience.
You already know the cost-saving benefits and allure of a destination wedding when pitching your clients, and now you can make the deal that much sweeter by letting them know they can get married in a unique wedding location at Sandals Grande St. Lucian on Pigeon Island. The resort’s new Overwater Serenity Wedding Chapel, located at the most southwestern point of the resort, features an open-air chapel with a glass aisle and panoramic views of Rodney Bay. The interior of the chapel is decorated with elegant seaside decor, including a river stone altar, polished with a silver leaf finish and a nature-inspired aisle lined by three glass panels.
This first-of-its-kind venue for the Caribbean can seat a maximum of 20 guests and is available for reservations upon arrival on a first-come, first-serve basis. Guests can book the chapel with any wedding package, such as the Beautiful Beginnings package, which comes with a fuchsia orchid bouquet and boutonniere, table for eight, centerpiece, and cake. The Beautiful Beginnings package is included when guests book three nights or more. Regular room rate start at $239 pp per night.

In addition, Sandals has released a mini-commercial demonstrating the ease and convenience clients receive when planning their wedding through the company’s recently launched Sandals Virtual Wedding Planning Experience. The application is 100 percent web-based and allows for a rich face-to-face experience for both wedding planners and clients by utilizing video and audio conferencing, a chat function, a share screen, and an option to share media. Sandals Virtual Wedding Planning Experience also allows multiple persons to be part of the same interactive consultation. To view the video click here. For more information, visit sandals.com.
