Sandals Resorts continues to up their destination wedding game with their over water wedding chapel! So far the over water chapels are going to be at two resorts: Sandals South Coast in Jamaica and Sandals Grande St. Lucian in St. Lucia.
Last week I had a meeting with our Sandals representative and we discussed several new items that Sandals is working on. The over water wedding chapel is the newest destination wedding addition to their selection. This location is not an additional cost and would be perfect for small weddings, even elopement weddings. The chapel is set directly over the water. The chapel has doors that fully open to give stunning views of the island and the glass in the floor lets you glimpse at marine life below.
In my opinion, the over water wedding chapel allows couples to have a mix of a beachfront wedding paired with having a back-up plan in case of inclement weather. No couple wants to be stuck in the ballroom at their island wedding!
Since the chapel is a venue that does not come at an additional cost they are going to be booked several months in advance. We always suggest booking a destination wedding at least 12 months in advance if the couple wants a specific island, a specific day, and a specific location for the wedding. Couples have to remember that people from all over the world come to the Caribbean to get married and dates are already filling up for 2018.
Sandals does not specifically have an elopement package, but one of our past couples used the Beautiful Beginnings package for their elopement and it worked out well. You can look at the Sandals WeddingMoon options here.
