You can always start with one of our predesigned themes and add your own personal touches, creating a custom wedding tailored just for you.

Flutter of Romance - $1700
Create a day filled with joyful romance and a playful spirit when you choose the Flutter of Romance wedding theme. Pretty pink butterflies add a touch of whimsy to menus and place cards, and they also top the pale pink cake for a look that's charming and sweet. The bridal bouquet, boutonniere, and centerpieces are made up of pink and fuchsia roses and fuchsia orchids that coordinate beautifully with the rest of the décor.

Vision in White - $2300
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. Your elegant white fondant cake is decorated with classic white ribbon and topped with white dendrobium blooms. 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.

Seaside Serenade - $2500
Capture the romantic spirit of the ocean's 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. Your cake décor consists of an aqua fondant cake topped with red roses. Every delightful detail, in white, aqua, and coral, evokes the natural beauty of a seaside celebration.

Chic and Natural - $2500
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 soft sand linen. Your cake décor consists of a pistachio green fondant cake topped with white dendrobium orchid blooms. The Chic & Natural wedding guarantees you'll start your new life together in style.

Island Paradise - $2900
The Island Paradise wedding brings the vibrant colors of a Caribbean isle to your celebration. Gorgeous orchids arranged in fuchsia, pink, orange, and yellow evoke a romantic feel of tropical opulence. Lush banana leaves embellish the bamboo ceremony arch while natural wood trays filled with a variety of orchids in vibrant colors serve as the centerpieces. The white fondant cake is trimmed with satin ribbon and topped with fresh orchids for a delightfully Caribbean feel.

    We loved Sandals Grande Antigua - the beach was beautiful and the campus was just like in the pictures. We had butler service and they were amazing. They really attended to all of our needs. Food was good and the services were excellent. We recommend staying in the Mediterranean section - more updated

    Wonderful, wonderful venue. The coordinators were very friendly and fun. They did not pressure me to purchase anything and they surprised me by going above and beyond. Not to mention the gorgeous views!

    We had our dream wedding at Sandals Grande Antigua. we wanted a unique wedding on the beach but sadly the beach wasn't as private as we wanted. But we found a beautiful gazebo with flowers surrounding it and had our ceremony first dance and cake cutting there....then had our reception in the reflection pool area..which was gorgeous. We wouldn't have picked it any other way. We had beautiful weather...80 n breezy. Everyone was soo nice. The wedding is free if u meet the rewuirements. They provide u with a bouquet, boutineer, hors d'eurves for reception, music if u don't have it, cake etc. My wedding cooring was wonderful. My hair and make up absolutely perfect...u have nothing to worry about in their hands and it is soo stress free which we like :) even tho we wanted to get married on the beach...and didn't we took pix to last us forever...we had pix after the reception by the beach as well as during ceremony n reception then came back at sunset in our wedding attire and did sunset photos...we had two photographers and they were both different and out of this world..they were beyond incredible. I would highly recommend destination weddings in sandals grande antigua for a dream come true stress free wedding ceremony :)
