Flutter of Romance
Create a day filled with joyful romance and a playful spirit when you choose the Flutter of Romance wedding. Pretty butterflies add a touch of whimsy to menus and place cards and top the pale pink cake or round mini-cakes for a look that’s charming and sweet. The bridal bouquet, boutonniere, and centerpieces are made of pink and fuchsia roses and magenta orchids that coordinate beautifully with the rest of the décor. Flutter of Romance is priced at $1,500 in Jamaica; $1,700 in St. Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas; and $1,900 in Turks & Caicos.
Vision in White
The classic white wedding you’ve always envisioned takes on a dreamier quality when transported to a lush island setting. Hints of eyelet and lace grace every detail, from the party favors to the desserts and delicate white orchids and gladiolas make up the bouquet. You have the choice of an elegant white cake or cupcakes, both decorated with doily accents. White pillar candles wrapped in eyelet fabric cast a soft, romantic glow over the reception table for an exquisite setting you’ll remember for a lifetime. Vision in White is priced at $2,500 in Jamaica; $2,700 in St. Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas; and $2,900 in Turks & Caicos.
Capture the romantic spirit of the ocean’s sweet, flowing melody with the Seaside Serenade wedding, featuring accents inspired by the sun, sand, and surf of an island oasis. Exchange vows under a bamboo ceremony arch strung with strands of capiz shells, then enjoy your reception at a beautiful table set with seashell, coral, and sand accents. You have the choice of an aqua fondant cake with white coral accents or cupcakes topped with white sugar seashells. Every delightful detail, in white, aqua, and coral, evokes the natural beauty of a seaside celebration. Seaside Serenade is priced at $3,000 in Jamaica; $3,200 in St. Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas; and $3,400 in Turks & Caicos.
Chic & Natural
The Chic & Natural wedding imbues your special day with a feeling of serene enchantment. Clean lines and organic elements set a tranquil tone that is modern and full of romantic charm. The ceremony and reception are accented with white and green orchids, polished black river stones, vibrant green moss, and touches of natural linen. Whether you choose a pale green cake topped with a white camellia or cupcakes topped with small green cymbidium orchids, the Chic & Natural wedding guarantees you’ll start your new life together in style. Chic & Natural is priced at $3,600 in Jamaica; $3,800 in St. Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas; and $4,000 in Turks & Caicos.
The Island Paradise wedding brings the soft, warm colors of a Caribbean summer evening to your celebration. Gorgeous orchids arranged in magenta, pink, orange, and yellow reflect the majestic hues of a setting sky and evoke a feel of romantic tropical opulence. Lush banana leaves embellish the bamboo ceremony arch, while natural wood trays filled with tropical fruits and bright blooms serve as the centerpieces. The cake (or square mini-cakes) is trimmed with rattan pattern fondant and covered in fresh orchids for a delightfully Caribbean feel. Island Paradise is priced at $6,000 taking place at 5:00PM at all resorts.
In addition to the six exquisite wedding themes, couples have the opportunity to enhance their destination wedding with à la carte Finishing Touches for the ceremony and reception. A variety of meaningful and unique style elements are available, including parasols to shield guests from the sun, a petal-strewn aisle lit by floating candles in large glass hurricanes, a candy buffet where guests can help themselves to sweet treats, a romantically lit evening on the beach for you and your guests, and a sand unity ceremony.
