If you fantasise about getting married abroad but feel that, in reality, it’s either too stressful or too expensive, you may just find the solution right here. Believe it or not, you can host an extra-special destination wedding in the Caribbean without spending a single penny. Because when couples book 3 nights or more at any one of Sandals’ award-winning all-inclusive Caribbean resorts – from Barbados to Jamaica – they can save on the entire cost of their wedding.

If you book a 3 day honeymoon at one of Sandals’ luxury adults-only resorts (where the powder-white beaches are some of the best in the Caribbean), Sandals’ expert wedding planners will arrange a stunning wedding for you and your partner at no extra cost.

They’ll even take the hassle out of organising your marriage documents (yay!). Imagine walking down the aisle with an exotic bouquet and boutonnière made up from brightly-coloured Mokara orchids, before sipping on signature cocktails while your guests devour complimentary canapés and cake.

What’s more, both you and your partner will be treated to pampering pre-wedding spa treatments so that you can start your big day feeling like royalty.

All you’ve got to do is choose that extra-special location: maybe you’d like a seaside ceremony on Dickenson Bay, the best beach in Antigua? Or perhaps you’d prefer to exchange vows in an intimate setting, like one of the resorts’ lush gardens. Our favourite option? The breathtaking Over-the-Water Wedding Chapel at the Sandals South Coast resort in
Jamaica, which is well worth its additional booking cost.


Then its straight onto your honeymoon! Also included in the Free Wedding package is a romantic turn-down service and breakfast in bed (with mimosas), so that couples can spend their first day of married life feeling thoroughly spoilt.

The hardest thing you’ll have to deal with is choosing which island to visit... Relax with a couple’s massage at Sandals Barbados’ award-winning spa; chill out by the seriously Instagram-worthy balcony pool in one of Sandals Grenada's Skypool Suites; gaze out at the aquamarine sea as you recline in your private, outdoor Tranquility Tub (just one of Sandals’ resorts’ signature features). We particularly love Sandals Royal Bahamian, where couples can escape to the resort’s offshore island for total seclusion.


Sandals resorts have picked up countless awards and accolades over the years for good reason – water sports (from snorkeling to wakeboarding) keep guests active, while unlimited gourmet food and premium drinks really fuel the fun.

You’ll find up to 16 unique restaurants at any one of the resorts, so there’s plenty of great grub to choose from. And let’s not forget that outstanding service Sandals is known for. Stay for 6 nights to enjoy island life a little longer and take advantage of more free perks, like room upgrades, a complimentary wedding videographer service and candlelit dinners.


What are you waiting for? Sit back, relax, and let your free-of-charge wedding planners take all the stress out of organising your dream day. Discover how you can host a seriously affordable destination wedding – and figure out which Sandals resort to add to your bucket list –

So it is easy to host a magical wedding in paradise after all! The only risk? You’ll never want to leave...
