Does the "couples only" rule apply for DW parties?

Recommended Posts


We're in the initial stages of selecting our DW resort and cannot get Sandals out of our mind.  The problem is the mother of the groom is single and says she will not be bringing anyone with her.  Does anyone know if Sandals will bend the couples only rule for DWs or do we need to cross Sandals off our list and start looking elsewhere?


Thanks! =)

Hi CarStar


Usually Sandals will offer an excpetion to wedding parties. Typically they will allow single occupancy for a small percentage of your guests.

This can sometimes work out to 1-2 people. If you were sure that your soon-to-be mother-in-law will be the only single, you may still be able to have your DW at a Sandals resort! :)


I would suggest talking to your Travel Agent and asking them to arrange this, because it is not guaranteed all the time. We have managed to work out this situation with some of our brides through our Sandals Rep. I would ask your TA to talk to their Rep and see what can be done before you cross Sandals off enitrely.


Also, in the case that they won't budge for you on this, there is always Beaches Resorts. Beaches is the family version of Sandals, so mostly everything that you love about Sandals will be included in a vacation at a Beaches resort.


Hope this has helped, and Good Luck!!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
