Ask Marsha Ann: What if I have Kids?
Q: “I want to have kids present at my wedding but I’ve come to realize that Sandals is an adult only couples resort. Are there any other options for me at all? I’ve heard about Beaches but what if I want to get married at some place specifically on a Sandals property even if I’m staying at beaches? Is there anything at all that I can do?” – From Katie
The heartiest congratulations to you on the thrill and excitement surrounding the planning of your wedding! I believe that weddings are a once in a lifetime affair that is even more memorable when it is extended to a network of important family members and friends witnessing this amazing celebration! I’ll cut straight to the chase; yes, Sandals is an adult and couple’s only resort.
However, in an effort to respond to your question I will share two great & exciting options for you to explore.
Have you heard about Beaches Resorts? Sandals recognized the need for a family oriented resort where everyone can come together and have an amazing vacation. Beaches Resorts are designed for everyone; it allows you to celebrate the most important time of your life with people that mean so much to you. At Beaches, you can have the full involvement of the children participating in the wedding proceeding if that is a part of your vision and you also have the flexibility of when the adults want to continue the celebration. The kids will only be too happy to slip away and enjoy age appropriate activities that we have geared from tots to teens.
“But Marsha-Ann, what about all those gorgeous wedding options available at Sandals?”
No worries! All of those beautiful wedding options are available at Beaches. Just like Sandals, Beaches locations are scattered throughout Caribbean with two in Jamaica and one in Turks and Caicos. Just like Sandals, Beaches offers breathtaking wedding locations spotted along flawless stretches of beach and intimate locations in various gardens. As a matter of fact, one of Sandals Wedding Blog’s real wedding features took place at Beaches Turks and Caicos and well…I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
Every wedding detail from the flowers to the reception options is available at Beaches. It’s the exact same Weddingmoon, at Beaches we just call them “Familymoons” because you’re entire family including your kids are a part of the magic! You can even plan your wedding colors, details and designs online with the interactive wedding designer at Beaches online just like you could do with Sandals online. Trust me the only difference is kids are welcomed. You can explore all of this with our interactive Beaches wedding planner here.
“But Marsha-Ann, what if I want an adult’s only honeymoon experience?”
Here is the part that is ooh so whimsical, after your magical wedding day at Beaches witnessed by your friends and family, you are your hubby can slip off to enjoy your romantic honeymoon at one of our Sandals resorts in Jamaica if you so desire. This combination truly gives you the best of both worlds. In a word, I describe this as … Ultimate !!
Katie now that I have shared the dynamics of the flexibility with all ages for Beaches, Sandals is the ultimate brand for two people in love it is dubbed as uniquely romantic. Our wedding celebrations at Sandals also host a beautiful blend of adult family and friends who partake in the celebrations. ll guests who stay at a Sandals must be 18 years and over. Like Beaches, we also offer exciting concessions for larger wedding parties staying at Sandals. The benefits of booking with both are truly endless.
