TORONTO — With just 10 days to go before Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle, Sandals Resorts has introduced its own take on royal weddings with a new wedding inspiration, ‘English Royalty’, the first to debut since last year’s launch of Aisle to Isle.
Available for purchase starting May 14 for weddings taking place as soon as September 2018, English Royalty “was designed for brides and grooms who seek to infuse classic and royal hues into their celebration, along with the modern elegance Meghan has displayed since entering the Royal circuit”, says Sandals Resorts.
Décor and design elements include regal accents including purple, perennial emerald green, and the new classic, blush – a favorite of the bride-to-be based on her recent fashion choices.
Floral options include a blush and purple rose centerpiece and filled baskets arranged on oversized gold shepherd hooks to frame the ceremony aisle pathway, or as a hanging centerpiece over reception tables. Other features include mason jars and cone bouquets, each featuring hydrangeas, roses, lavender.
Sandals Resorts Director of Romance Marsha-Ann Brown says Millennial brides and grooms seek inspiration and information above all else when planning their wedding celebration and no other happening this year is more stirring than the wedding of Harry to Meghan.
“While no bride wants a replica of another couples’ wedding day festivities, the fairy tale of an ordinary girl becoming a princess is the stuff of dreams. We’re excited to play even a small role in helping the couples who choose Sandals to have their happily ever after too.”
Sandals Resorts is also celebrating with a romantic package, ‘royal-themed’ spa services and watch party and a chance to win a 7-night vacation for two in a Love Nest Suite with butler service.
There’s also the Royal Honeymoon upgrade, available now through May 31, 2018 for US$750 per couple, with a honeymoon mimosa breakfast-in-bed any morning of choice; 90-minute Night Blooming Jasmine Couples Massage; private candlelight dinner under the stars with a bottle of chilled Prosecco wine; Sandals’ signature ‘5 Senses of Love In-Room Experience’; framed 8×10 photo keepsake and late checkout.
Couples can also ‘Vacation Like a Royal’ when they enter the brand’s sweepstakes May 14 – 31, 2018 at sandals.com/Royal. The prize includes a seven-night stay for two to any one of the brand’s ‘Royal’ resorts including Sandals Royal Caribbean or Sandals Royal Plantation in Jamaica, Sandals Royal Barbados or Sandals Royal Bahamian.
