VIP’s 6 favorite non-beach wedding locations at Sandals and Beaches Resorts

Destination weddings in the Caribbean provide some of the most gorgeous backdrops! Sandals and Beaches Resorts realize that a beach ceremony is often sought after by wedding couples; however, they also understand that today’s bride wants some unique location options as well. Just because a bride is getting married in the Caribbean doesn’t always mean she wants to walk on the sand to tie the knot.

Sandals and Beaches Resorts have many different gazebos and their gardens are spectacular. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of assisting over 100 wedding couples exchange their vows at a Sandals or Beaches Resort. When I speak with my bride, I often ask her what she envisions for her wedding day. If she is picturing a non-beach location, I then show her photos from my previous “non-beach” brides to help guide her in selecting not only a wedding location but also in choosing a resort. Through this process, I have discovered which tend to be the most popular ceremony locations among my wedding couples.

Here are my 6 favorite Sandals/Beaches wedding locations that are not on the beach:

1. Sandals Emerald Bay’s reflecting pool and Gazebo.
 Emerald Bay’s gorgeous powder beach sits directly behind the Gazebo, which is at the edge of a long reflecting pool. This one-of-a-kind Sandals wedding location emanates a serene and romantic aura.

2. Sandals Negril’s beachside Gazebo.
 Providing shade from the sun and only two steps from the beach, Sandals Negril’s wooden Gazebo allows brides to still wear their heels, yet hear the calm Negril water lapping the shore just a few yards away.

3. Beaches Negril’s garden Roman Arched Gazebo. Elevated at the edge of where the beautiful gardens meet the sand, this arched gazebo encapsulates the essence of Jamaica’s tropical foliage and still provides ocean views for the most stunning photos.

4. Sandals Montego Bay’s Frank Warren Chapel.
 With the only church setting of all the Sandals/Beaches Resorts, this lovely chapel in the tropics can seat 80 guests. Once brides hear the sentimental story of Frank Warren’s widow who gifted this chapel in memory of her late husband, they often decide to follow the tradition of lighting a candle during the ceremony to honor eternal love.

5. Beaches Turks & Caicos deck at Schooners. Directly outside of Schooners restaurant sits a wooden decking area that offers pristine views of Grace Bay. The turquoise waters directly below the decking added with the tall greenery along the edges create an amazing Caribbean setting.

6. Sandals Antigua’s Mediterranean Gardens. Paradise wouldn’t be complete without colorful flowers and lush gardens. In a very intimate setting, Sandals Antigua’s gardens provide an enchanting wedding location. Brides can opt to add an arch or use the Roman Gazebo.



I’m so sorry its taken me a ridiciously long time to write to you about how everything went with our wedding and to send a review your way. I can think of one word to sum it up…AMAZING!!! But a couple hundred more to ramble on.

It’s been almost 3 months and I still have people telling me it was the best wedding they’ve been to (and I have to agree!). I couldn’t have done this without Jennifer and VIP.

I got engaged in July 2009 and all I knew was that I wanted a destination wedding before the hurricane season started the next year. I was completely clueless and hadn’t done a THING until we went to a destination wedding expo on halloween that year and stopped at VIP’s booth and talked to Jennifer. That was it, I had found my “wedding whisperer” as I called her! She was exactly what I needed to figure out what I wanted and how to plan it. She helped us decide on Sandals Negril since we had friends and family coming from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, it was easy, affordable, and fun for everyone not to mention gorgeous.

We knew we were going to have a fairly large group going with us (ended up 40) which required a little more effort. We ran into an issue with Sandals dropping some of the rooms that we had held for people to book, but Jennifer came through for us and not only got rooms back but in a better room category for the same price. I felt like I was constantly emailing and calling her and she was always quick to respond and very informative. I liked being able to talk to someone who #1 had actually been to the resort I was considering (not to mention everywhere else in the world!) and #2 was a destination bride herself, she had so many creative ideas to share because of this.

Now off to Negril, Jamaica! We had a non-stop flight which was wonderful and arrived at the resort to a beautiful day and the most friendly, laid-back yet hard-working staff you could imagine. I loved them! We met our wedding coordinator the next day (and I waterskied right after ha so crazy!) and were blown away by the organization since all plans were made “sight unseen” and how entertaining Giselle was! She made me feel so relaxed about everything and I knew the wedding would go well as long as the daily 4:00 rain storm would hold off and miraculously it did although not without some rumbles of thunder in the background! The ceremony on the beach was better than I could have dreamed and we got the arch we didn’t think we could get! Our cocktail hour was accompanied by the coolest steel drum band that got everyone in the Jamaican mood. Our photographer Romaine was THE BEST, we absolutely loved his energy and phenomenal pictures. Then the 2 hour reception on the beach that began at sunset (a perfect time suggested by Jennifer) was both delicious and the time of our lives! The time and location were perfect for everyone to finish the night off at the Piano bar next door. Jennifer suggested a trash the dress photo session the next day and after seeing her own pictures I couldn’t refuse. Best thing I could have done! When in your life can you jump in the Caribbean with your wedding dress on and roll around in the sand?!?! We went snorkeling with a group of our friends and family after and it was such a fun experience. A few days later we said our goodbyes to everyone and had an adventure packed honeymoon in Sandals Dunns’ River.

I’ll finally wrap this up by saying THANK YOU Jennifer and VIP Vacations for helping Anthony and I plan the wedding that reflected who we are. It got some people on a trip who would never do something like this. It couldn’t have gone better, and we couldn’t have done any of this without you! I hope to keep in touch with you!

All our Best,

Dana (Pietrzak) and Anthony Petrucci - - Norristown, PA
