Sandals Wedding Insiders: The Virtual Bridesmaid
With Free Unlimited WiFi comes great responsibility to keep you connected with your very best girls on your wedding day!
We’ve got to admit it, Technology is kind of amazing. We can think of a million really good uses for it on a daily basis, however, this is one use we’re really excited about; virtual bridesmaids! Deciding to have a destination wedding ultimately means that there is a small possibility not all of your guests may be able to attend; this includes bridesmaids. Maybe one of your very best friends can’t make it from across seas. Perhaps one of your potential bridesmaids is very pregnant and can’t travel. No matter the reason, we can’t think of a better way to use the new unlimited, free WiFi at Sandals Resorts than to bring your bridesmaids to your wedding virtually!
Here’s how you can virtually include a bridesmaid on your wedding day. All you need is a laptop, tablet or smartphone and your favorite video messaging app.
- While your back home, include your VB (virtual bridesmaid) in the wedding planning as you would with your other bridesmaids. Include her in choosing the colors for your bridesmaids and help her find a dress she already owns or an inexpensive option to wear on your big day. On the big day, while you and your other bridesmaids are getting dressed, video message her so she can be in on all the pre-wedding fun and jitters. Since you can now enjoy internet access from any device anywhere on the resort including any room category with FREE WiFi, your VB can be present for it all!
- Have her get dressed and all made-up alone with everyone else. Make sure to interact with her and have your other bridesmaids interact as well. We’re sure she’ll appreciate being a part of all the pre-wedding talk that goes on before the big moment.
- Take it up a notch: If you’ve got a tablet or a light laptop, ask one of your soon-to-be husband’s groomsmen or a willing bridesmaid to walk your VB down the aisle! If you’re a social media junkie, this makes for a great wedding story. Besides, we know your VB would appreciate all the love and the extent you were willing to go through to have her present on the most important day of your life.
- One of our real wedding brides, Kerri, had her brother virtually attend her WeddingMoon in Exuma from Germany! Her mother held her tablet during the ceremony and Kerri’s brother was able to be present from the “I Dos” to the first kiss. We say, have your VB attend your wedding the same way. You can even ask one of your bridesmaids to hold your VB during the ceremony instead of a bouquet. Not only would she have the best seat in the house, she would be there with you virtually at the altar.
At Sandals Resorts, making the right connection is always at your fingertips, especially on the biggest day of your life! Would you have a virtual bridesmaid on your wedding day?
