Sandals launches Aisle to Isle wedding experience
Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts has announced the launch of Aisle to Isle, a new destination wedding experience.
According to the company’s director of Romance, Marsha-Ann Brown, Aisle to Isle was designed in response to a study by the company that revealed that millennial brides and grooms seek inspiration and information above all else when planning their wedding celebration.
It includes eight new inspirations, more food and beverage options and new ceremony and reception venues.
“No bride wants a replica of another couples’ wedding day festivities. The ability to customise every facet of the experience, so that it truly reflects the unique personality of the individual couple and their style is paramount,” said Brown.
“Aisle to Isle gives brides what they want most – inspiring ideas and the information and professional expertise they need to create a celebration that is singularly theirs.”
Beauty Matters: Inspired and Insta-Worthy Design
The eight new inspirations offers creative suggestions for brides and grooms to plan their wedding from tabletop, floral accompaniment and setting, to runners, chair selection, altar and more. Complementing the design inspirations are enhanced food and beverage options including themed bar design, custom cocktails and expanded menu selections.

Along with the beach, garden and gazebo locations, new ceremony and reception venues will be available as part of the launch, including off-site locations for photo shoots; a newly renovated chapel at Sandals Montego Bay; the first-ever over-the-water chapels in the Caribbean, located in Saint Lucia and Jamaica; and the chance to elevate a beach or garden wedding with a twilight-timed nuptial and unity sand ceremony.
“Many of our brides report they are choosing destination weddings because they turn a traditional five-hour celebration to a days’ long affair. More time with family and friends is important to these couples,” says Brown.
Sandals is making planning this extended experience easier, offering couples their own “wedding entourage,” a team of experts from planning to execution who will assist with resort selection, venue scheduling, on-site logistics and the numerous details throughout the wedding stay and honeymoon.
This team will also have suggestions for welcome celebrations, spa days, groomsmen outings and other activities; and the more guests that join the celebration with booked rooms, the more bells and whistles – tangible rewards – couples will earn.
For example, couples that have 12 booked guest rooms can choose from perks such as $1,000 towards a private catamaran cruise, a complimentary room upgrade, a two-minute wedding trailer video, and more.
