Antigua wedding paradise!!! A dream come true

Recommended Posts

Wedding in paradise!!!

My wife (as of June 2nd /09) and I just returned from 14 fabulous days at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort in Antigua. We have nothing but praise for this resort. Everything was first class. The Staff was amazing, from our Champaign greeting upon or arrival, to the multiple fruit plates sent to the room and rose peddles put on our bed the wedding night…it was just so fantastic! I could go on forever but here are a few highlights:

Food: let me tell you that you will not stop eating, and you won’t find a bad meal anywhere.

Bayside Buffet, everyday has a new theme...and don’t think about it as buffet food…it is high standards in that place.

Ok Corel – Best ribs ever!!!!!!!! The BBQ sauce they put on the ribs and chicken is to die for.

Mario’s – Great pizza for lunch (be prepared to wait though) and dinners are sensational

Kimono’s – what a fun night. We did this twice. Great food and you will not walk away hungry. Ask for Sugars room – you will know why after! Sugar is the BEST!!!!

Oh I could go on, just know all the food is great, and for late night snack (or even dinner) tries out Cricketeers – felt like I was at my local English pub.

Rooms:

We stayed in a Rondaval ocean front. Was great. Large room, cleaned every day, and nice turn down service. PLUS our fridge was stocked every day with what we wanted, and if we ran out they brought more no questions asked.

Resort:

This place is big. 2 unique sides though. The new Mediterranean side reminds me of Vegas. Gorgeous rooms, but lot of walking if you’re up there. We stayed on the Caribbean side. Closer to the ocean and many of the facilities but older rooms – but no matter where you go you will be happy.

Wedding:

My wife and I got married on the beach on June 2nd. The wedding staff was fantastic. They took away the stress from us leading up to and upon our day (well as much as possible) the wedding was absolutely beautiful, a complete dream. We had 25 guests with us, and everyone gave us nothing but praise about the day!!!! I would highly recommend going away and doing it in the tropics. Our pictures are beautiful! White sand, crystal blue water, sun…..but it was HOT! The day went seamless, everyone took care of us, the video we received was amazing, the pictures are beautiful, and at night our reception food was fantastic. They actually came around and asked everyone how they wanted their steak cooked….where do you ever get that at a wedding? Looking back, I could not dream of a better wedding!

In conclusion we had the most amazing trip. Our friends all had the times of their lives also. We highly recommend the resort, and if your thinking of a wedding there…..go for it!!!!!!

I would like to make note of a few amazing staff members!

Latoya – bartender at the small swim up bar on the Caribbean side. She served 25 people all day every day and did not skip a beat. Ask for the dirty banana….she makes the best! We love ya, if for nothing else were coming back to see you!!!!

Niki is the food and drink manager. Every day she is out there talking to the guests and making sure everything is ok. She never stops smiling. She made us feel so at home

Shae was the one who kept us active around the resort. Shae was amazing, what a fantastic guy. He even stood in the background and watch our wedding.

Leslie the front desk manager, she was not happy unless we were. We were really treated like gold by her and the whole staff.

 

Have fun!!!!

Dave & Jen

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
