Sandals Weddings FAQs
Most of the resorts offer a beach, a garden and a gazebo location.
There are four! Choose from vanilla, chocolate, Caribbean fruit, and red velvet.
Your marriage certificate will be sent by mail in the following timeframes, depending on the island:
Jamaica: 6‐8 weeks

Bahamas: 8‐10 weeks

The best way to travel with your beloved wedding dress depends on which method of its transportation would make you feel most at-ease. Brides-to-be can definitely bring their wedding dress through a security checkpoint. You should transport your dress in a garment bag and carefully lay it flat through the x-ray process. If your dress can’t fit, the dress can be screened manually by gloved TSA officers, requiring the opening of the garment bag.
We strongly advise to contact your airline and ask about bringing the wedding dress on the plane. Some aircraft have closets in first class that can hold the dress, while others may not, which could cause challenges in storing the dress above the seat. Airlines will also count the dress as a carry-on item.
No, but some Sandals resorts have contact information for local formalwear providers (varies by island). Due to the Caribbean climates, you may want to consider a light weight alternative for the groom such as a button-down shirt and cotton shorts.
Sandals properties are adults-only, but you can have weddings at the family-friendly Beaches resorts too!
All details should be finalized 60 days prior to arrival.
All fees can be mailed as long as they are with your wedding confirmation number. The fee must be received 7 days from the date you booked the wedding to avoid booking cancellation. Government fees are not included in your package price.
The fees are as follows:
$95 for weddings in Jamaica
$288 for weddings in Antigua
$310 for weddings in the Bahamas
$270 for weddings in Saint Lucia
$180 for weddings in Grenada
$325 for weddings in Barbados
