Sandals Antigua Brides??

Recommended Posts

This thread has been quiet for a while, so I thought I would try to revive it. My fiance and I are getting married at Sandals Grande in Antigua on May 23, 2012. I can't wait!

Are there any other Antigua brides around?

Hi Love! Congrats on your up coming wedding! I'm so glad that you posted. I was beginning to feel a little lonely in here..hehe Did you choose a site on the resort for your wedding yet? I think we're going to have the ceremony in the barefoot gazebo and a reception on the beach.

Hey SGA brides.  I just got married there in June and will be happy to answer any of your questions.  It helps to have someone put your mind at ease.  Let me know if I can help.

Hi! I've heard so many great things about this site and have been "stalking" the posts for the past month.  I'm SO happy to have finally joined!  My fiancé and I have recently ecided to get married in August 2012 at Sandals Antigua.  Wahoo!  I'm so excited!  I spoke to my "Miami" representative this evening and it went very well.  Of course, now that I'm off the phone with her I have tons of questions that I won't get answered until March 29th when I speak with Ebony.  Geeze!  That seems like forever away! Are there any new or recent Sandals Antigua brides out there who would like to "share" in my anxiety or maybe help relieve some of it...my fiancé is no help. :) I feel like my questions are so minute and would hate to become a pest to my coordinator in Miami the day after I make my final arrangements - I have plenty of time for that. :)

 Hi Jessie, 

Thank goodness I found a friend!  My fiancé and I just finalized our plans to get married at Sandals grande Antigua in early August 2012.  I've been a nervous wreck since I hung up the phone. :)

Hi Cnikole! I'm so excited that you responded! We booked the wedding last summer and it's been a while since I've spoken with Ebony. I'm planning to call her soon. I've gathered from reading other threads that some things have changed regarding wedding options at Sandals since I booked, so I want to get up-to-date info from her. I have less than four months to go and I can't wait! We have nine people going including FI and I. Are you guys inviting any family or friends?

 

SarahTD - I learned so much from reading all of your posts! I'm sure I will have more questions as the time approaches. I'll definitely be taking you up on your offer!

Hey JessieH, 

     My fiancé and I booked our wedding through Delta Destinations and they representative I spoke with also said there were changes coming to some of the wedding options.  Unfortunately, my Miami rep wasn't very helpful in providing information new options.  I'm hoping updates will be on the Sandals website soon.  It's just going to be my fiancé and I attending, so I'm just going with the Beautiful Beginnings package since it's free, however I was hoping to upgrade my bouquet. I'd like something a little more colorful for our pictures.  What have you heard about the photographers?  I'm so nervous about that!!!  I really want nice pictures and plan to purchase our CD to use for announcements for family and friends.

Hi Cnikole, We are going with the beautiful beginnings package as well. I'm attaching the brochure that Ebony sent to me with the flower options. I've heard that the photographers do a pretty good job at this resort. From what I've read, they will take a lot of pictures and you are able to chose the ones that you like. People have said that most wedding photographers will edit your photos for you, but Sandals doesn't. From what I've read, I think that its important that when we arrive at the resort, we request to speak with the photographer and let them know if we have any specific requests. I'm a little nervous about the photography as well, but they do a lot of weddings at the resort, so I'm sure the photographers are experienced.

Hi JessieH! I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your e-mail. Thank you so much for attaching the brochure from Ebony. Unfortunately, for some reason I haven't been able to view the file. It keeps saying I don't have permission to view the file. Would you mind sending it to my personal e-mail address when/if you get a chance at cnikole@msn.com? I would greatly appreciate it! I too agree meeting with the photographer ahead of time is a great idea.  Call me a little neurotic, but I'm even thinking about bringing some pictures of "poses" I would like to try.  So my next question is about your hair and makeup...are you planning on having it done at the spa/salon or do it yourself.
