How to Plan A Destination Wedding at Sandals or Beaches All inclusive Resorts

Beautiful beginnins destination wedding theme at Sandals and beaches resorts

How to book your Sandals or Beaches Wedding:

It is beneficial to book your wedding as far in advance as possible, especially if you have a particular date and if it is a Holiday weekend.  So, how far in advance should you book your Destination Wedding?  If possible, 1 ½  – 2 years before hand, at least one year. If you don’t have this much time, that’s okay.  Just give me a call and we’ll see what is available. Call me for your consultation and we’ll determine what room category and get group pricing (if applicable).

Group Pricing:  What You Need to Know:

The first thing we will do is secure your room with the $400 deposit. Once we have that, I will secure your wedding date and time and get a wedding group code.  The group code will be used if we choose not to have a group contract and will assist you in receiving any group amenities you may qualify for (like a free upgrade). If a group contract would be better for your group, I will let you know.  As a reference, the group contract is definitely beneficial if we are booking in advance and you have 5 or more rooms.  This will ensure the low rate (rates can change plus availability can’t be guaranteed).  A 10% deposit is required to secure a group which will hold a block of rooms and is generally paid by the bride and groom. This money will be applied toward your personal room as guests call me to secure their space.  A group contract will be the 10% deposit for all rooms held, not the $400 room deposit mentioned above. Once the contract is in place and the deposit is made, I can secure your wedding date and time. Call me for details!
