What is a Weddingmoon?

Brides who want an easy, breezy Sandals weddingmoon can even buy a gown appropriate for the tropics at one of the resorts.

Question: What is a Weddingmoon?
Answer: A weddingmoon is an out-of-town wedding at a Sandals all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean that combines a wedding and honeymoon. Sometimes known as a destination wedding, the weddingmoon is a term that was coined by Sandals, which hosts many weddingmoon couples and their guests every year.

To provide couples with a way to plan their destination wedding online, Sandals has introduced "Your Wedding, Your Style," an interactive wedding design tool. (Try it; it's fun!)

Other Caribbean all-inclusive resorts such as SuperClubs also host destination weddings, but the term weddingmoon is a Sandals trademark for the exclusive use of that resort group.

What Does a Weddingmoon Cost?

The cost of a weddingmoon can vary dramatically. Couples who book a six-night stay or longer at Sandals are entitled to a free weddingmoon. Normally, these events are fairly modest, and the resort will upsell couples who want more out of a free weddingmoon than:

  • Services of a wedding consultant
  • On-site ceremony location
  • Help with legal document preparation
  • Certified copy of marriage license
  • One 5"x7" wedding photograph
  • Pair of "Just Married" T-shirts
  • Bride's bouquet and groom's boutonniere
  • Wedding cake
  • Marriage officiant
  • Champagne and hors d'oeuvres reception for bride and groom plus two guests
  • Honeymoon dinner for bride & groom
  • Continental breakfast in bed
Couples who stay fewer days pay $750 for the weddingmoon services described above.

Martha Stewart Weddings
Sandals recently had entertaining guru Martha Stewart design six beach wedding themes . Each has its own theme, color palette, and floral accents. Prices for these start at $1,500 and can go well into the five figures depending on optional weddingmoon add-ons and additional guests.
