Marsha-Ann Brown, director of romance at Sandals and Beaches Resorts, explains the new Aisle to Isle wedding programme.
What is the new product all about?
Our Aisle to Isle custom-wedding programme has been designed with modern brides and grooms in mind, who seek inspiration and information above all else when planning their nuptials.
We created nine “inspirations” influenced by the tropics, gardens, romance, passion, the islands, sophistication, nature and sand and sea, all of which can be mixed to suit each individual couple’s requirements. Our newest addition is English Royalty.
What sets Sandals’ weddings offering apart?
Sandals and Beaches Resorts offers more quality inclusions than any other hotel operator, so our guests can always rest assured they will have a luxury experience. We take care of all the arrangements right from the very beginning, covering every aspect of the big day from destination- inspired wedding websites to customisable stationary. Our Aisle to Isle programme has also expanded its photo and video options. Sandals and Beaches guests can still take advantage of our free wedding option if they stay for three nights or more, which includes a cocktail reception, a wedding ceremony, a wedding entourage, a wedding cake and more.
How has the destination weddings market changed in recent years?
Many brides report they are now choosing a two or three-day wedding celebration rather than the traditional five-hour celebration, whether at home or overseas.
