we booked through a travel agent so was really easy. After we booked we had a call from Dania. She's the Sandals Wedding Coordinator & is absolutely useless. She's sporadic at responding & seems only interested in upselling. On the plus side, the wedding coordinators on site are fantastic. Once you get there, you have a meeting with the wedding office where they talk you through your ceremony & ask you to choose the cake. On the day, you can have your hair done in the salon but I chose to have mine done in the villa. Be careful of timings, nothing happens quickly. Our ceremony was at 4pm & I'd booked the hairdresser to be there for 12.00 & she turned up at 1.30. It wasn't a stress because I'd factored in her being late. Once that's done you sit & wait for the wedding coordinator to come & get you. Mine turned up to dress me at 3.40 & told me that they were still waiting for the officiant to turn up. It was a roasting hot day so I said I'd get dressed once I knew the officiant had arrived. She got the call at 3.50 so got dressed & off we went. She walked me round to the gazebo & checked the train etc was ok & that was it. We had no ceremony rehearsal & hadnt met the officiant but she was fantastic. Ps I did my own make up. I was a bit worried that they would make me up too much or that I wouldn't look like me (if that makes sense) You can have this done at the same time as your hair, either in the salon or in your room.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.
