Find the perfect beachside resort with the help of a honeymoon specialist.

Are you engaged and planning every detail of your upcoming wedding? Here is one part of the planning you can turn over to your soon-to-be groom: the honeymoon. If you’re not sure where the perfect place to spend your first week as husband and wife will be, I can help. With a few simple questions, I can guide you to the perfect location for both of you.

I have worked with more than 500 couples since I started coordinating weddings and after a few months of working on every detail for the wedding day, my clients would ask what more I could assist them with. I decided to use my love of travel and become certified to help with the honeymoon as well — and I chose Sandals Resorts to partner with. To plan a honeymoon, I factor in your hobbies and dream vacation, then make a recommendation to fit.

There is no charge for me to assist you in finding the right island, property and room for you. Whether I am your wedding planner or not makes no difference; you will never pay me to book your honeymoon. Sandals Resorts has a price guarantee. I work hard for my clients, and my goal is to always give more than is expected. Sandals fits that goal. Regardless of the method you use to book your honeymoon, you will always pay the same. You can visit the Sandals website or work with me and be quoted the same price.

Offering 15 locations on six different Islands can be overwhelming. Many clients take a look at the website, then contact me to help them choose the right location. If you want to enjoy an even higher level of service, you have the option of an English-trained butler to ensure everything is beyond perfect during your stay. He can reserve your spot at the pool, handle all dinner, spa and activity reservations, serve breakfast on your private patio and create special moments you will not soon forget.

At an all-inclusive resort, the first thing you want to consider is what exactly is included, because not all inclusive resorts are the same. You will want to research what is actually included and what will be an additional charge at the particular property you are considering. At Sandals, the “extras” don’t cost extra. That means no transfer fees, no premium drink charges, no upgraded activity charges, no specialty dining up charge and no tipping. You have the option to dine at multiple restaurants per location, sip a drink or two by one of the multiple pools, enjoy glass- bottom boat rides, snorkeling or scuba diving — all included.

If you are planning your honeymoon or destination wedding, I would love to assist in finding the perfect resort for you. With locations in St. Lucia, Antigua, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Grenada and Barbados, I guarantee we can find a Sandals Resort that will make your honeymoon just as memorable as your wedding day.
