Why You Should Choose Sandals For Your Honeymoon

Emerald Bay Beach

As anyone from Chicago knows, the Midwest Winter is not to be taken lightly. After last year’s polar vortex, Chicago is ready to hunker down for another brutal Winter. With snow and ice already building on the ground, what happy thought will keep you going? How about a honeymoon to some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world? Consider Sandals, the luxury-included vacation. With 14 awe-inspiring locations in Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia, the Bahamas, Grenada, and Barbados, each Sandals resort has its own distinct personality and vibe, so no matter where your and your fiancé’s interests may lie, there IS a Sandals for you. What do you enjoy doing as a couple? Are you super foodies who enjoy a quality meal with a fine paired wine? Do you crave activity, from Scuba diving to beach volleyball to paddleboarding? Perhaps your ideal honeymoon is simply lounging by the pool with a Daiquiri in your hand, and a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach. Sandals offers all of those things, and more. And the best part? Everything is included, from your roundtrip airport transfers to taxes, tips, and service charges to all your meals, premium brand drinks, and activities. Sandals truly promises a worry-free stay, with a caring and accommodating staff that are trained to never say “no” to guests except for “no worries”. Not to mention, Sandals is exclusively for couples, so you will be able to enjoy basking in your newlywed glow without having it compromised by noisy kids running around causing trouble. Looking for a little extra luxury and pampering? Sandals offers several room categories, including concierge and butler service. Imagine relaxing in your own infinity pool in the Millionaire Suite at Sandals Regency La Toc, while a butler brings you chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, taking care of your every request and desire? Perhaps you are still convinced you crave the azure waters of French Polynesia for your honeymoon. Sandals Royal Caribbean is currently constructing over-the-water villa suites comparable to any in Tahiti or Bora Bora, opening in early 2016. No matter what style of vacation you and your fiancé are looking for, Sandals truly seeks to exceed your expectations and celebrate the love you have for each other.

Looking for a clean, classic white palette for your wedding florals? Look no further than Lilies of the Valley. With its bell-shaped flowers and sweet fragrance, Lily of the Valley symbolizes purity, sweetness, trustworthiness and the return of happiness. Said to bring luck in love, Lilies of the Valley are a royal favorite, making appearances in the bridal bouquets of Kate Middleton, Princess Diana, and Grace Kelly. The only downside? Its Spring season is limited to April and May. But if you are determined to add this alluring bloom into your flowers, then get the most bang for your buck by placing the Lilies of the Valley front and center where they are most visible in arrangements such as your bridal bouquet or surrounding your reception centerpieces.
