An amazing memory at The Sands!
Our wedding at The Sands Atlantic Beach was nothing short of a dream wedding!
From our first meeting with our wedding coordinator Lori, we were so excited. She clearly knew what she was doing, was so nice, and very happy to answer our many questions throughout our process with prompt responses.
When it came time for the big day, everything was amazing! Everyone always thinks their own wedding is the best, but you would not believe how many people came up to us throughout the night and said it was THE BEST wedding they’d ever been to! The compliments about how unbelievable the cocktail hour was, not only because of the variety (it is a LOT of food) but how delicious it was, have been endless. Lori gave us the opportunity for a tasting prior to our wedding, and we got to meet the amazing chefs, who like everyone else were so friendly and more than accommodating. Although most people said they were so stuffed from cocktail hour, many still raved about the main course and the insane Viennese hour that they put together for us. We had a bridal attendant at our side the whole night and loved the Maitre D. Several guests commented on how awesome it was that the bar was huge so there was never a long line, and also said the bartenders and all service staff were very friendly. To top everything off, the beach was pristine and we had a lovely October day to take some amazing beach pictures! We were thrilled with everything!
If you buy “the package” from The Sands (which ended up being a great choice for us,) you will be given choices of 3 photography companies, 2 DJs and 2 florists. I am sure all of the vendors are great, but we have to say we were over the moon with White Light Photography, Feriani Floral Decorators and EJ the DJ. We cannot say enough good things about any of these companies, and how they did everything they could to tailor the night to be specifically exactly what we dreamed of.

My daughter was married at the Sands on 5/4/2018. The wedding planner Brianna and her staff could not be more accommodating to our family. The food was phenomenal. All I know all is our guests and family were very impressed . If I had to book an event no matter what. My first choice is the Sands and only the Sands. Our wedding planner Brianna is the best way to go in getting everything together. She went above and beyond. Brianna made sure all of us were happy. GO BRIANNA.Sent on 05/07/2018

My guests were highly impressed with the professionalism that was demonstrated by all staff, the excellent food that was served, the amazing drinks and the overall service and atmosphere that the staff at the Sands provided. We highly recommend anyone and everyone to have their party at the sands for any occasion and to ask for Brianna- you definitely will not be disappointed and will be so happy with the outcome.Sent on 05/12/2018
