Caribbean Honeymoon Experiences

It’s time to plan your honeymoon and you know you want…sun, tropical & FUN! The resort that has thought of every last detail to ensure you have the BEST honeymoon every is the infamous Sandals Resorts. For 19 Years In–A–Row Sandals has been voted the World’s Leading All-inclusive company.

They pride themselves with extraordinary customer service and amenities. I visited the Royal Bahamian Resort last October and it was the best resort I had ever gone to! Here are some ideas you’ll definitely want to experience during your stay:
  • Set up a Sandals Gift Registry for your wedding. You can create a wish list of activities you can enjoy while there. You can even upgrade your room to a luxury suite!


  • You’ll receive a complimentary honeymoon package consisting of a bottle of chilled sparkling wine elegantly arranged in your room to toast your future, a special turndown service that includes flower petals on your bed on the first evening of your honeymoon and delight in a delivery of a decadent breakfast in bed one morning of your choice.

  • Enjoy the all inclusive resort with many restaurants, bars, swim up pools, land activities and water activities (i.e. snorkeling, scuba diving, golf, paddle boarding, aqua trikes, kayaking, cat sailing, windsurfing, gyms, entertainment – piano bar, live bands, karaoke, firepit parties, etc., tennis, volleyball, etc.)
  • In Jamaica and St. Lucia enjoy stay at 1 play at 3. You will be shuttled to the resorts.
  • In Nassau enjoy the off-shore island


  • Upgrade to the Butler category and let him take care of EVERYTHING for you! He will reserve your chairs by the pool with your reading materials and towels, make dinner reservations, draw a bath, turn down the sheets, do your laundry…whatever you need, he will do!

Sandals is located on 8 islands with 16 resorts. The newest one just opened this month, Sandals Barbados!! You can go to Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia, Bahamas/Nassau, Bahamas/Exuma, Turks & Caicos, Grenada & Barbados. Flights from Houston to Bahamas are very economical too!

Ideas For The Wedding Send Off

As a planner, the last thing that the couple thinks about is the send off of their wedding but it is important in tying the entire evening together and saying, “Goodbye,” to the couple right before they drive away. They always ask me for ideas. Many venues are restrictive on what they allow so it takes some creativity to plan the perfect ending to a perfect night.


I think that sparklers are the #1 idea for send offs. I did it at my wedding and as a planner, I have seen it done time and time again. Some venues are more lax than others if they will allow them or not (inside the city). So, before buying them check with the venue. You’ll want to light all the sparklers before the couple comes out but be sure the couple is right outside of the door waiting to exit. You don’t want your sparklers to go out before they have a chance to leave.

Heart Shaped sparklers

wedding party poppers


With this post, I would like to announce that I am selling sparklers and party poppers for your special event! You can purchase them on my website here:  http://royaltyeventparties.com/services/buy-sparklers/ There are different sizes and burn times available. I even have heart shaped sparklers!


Glow items I would say are the #2 most popular send off item. What’s great about glow jewelry is that you can bring them out during the dancing part of your reception and enjoy it earlier in the night too. They glow for hours so it will still be good at the end of the night. Then, for the send off, you can take off your necklace or bracelet and then twirl them around as the couple exits. It looks amazing! Some even throw them, even though I do not advise that (hahaha). The bride above used glow sticks that turned on and off. This made for a great wedding favor to take home!


The most traditional and 3rd favorite is the bubbles. Couples that just want something as a send off but don’t want the hassle of purchasing something unique will go to a craft store and pick up a few boxes of bubbles pretty inexpensively. They are super cheap and easy. A great tip with bubbles is to have the guests start blowing the bubbles just before the couple exits so there will be lots of bubbles for the pictures.

wandsHere’s another unique idea: I had a couple purchase personalized ribbon that had their name and wedding date on it with small bells attached at the top to a stick for waving. What I loved about this was that it made noise and it was very eye appealing for a great look (for the pictures).


IMG_7176Couples love limos or vintage vehicles for their get away car. I had one couple that borrowed a 1920’s car from a friend and boy was it a hit!! A horse and carriage is fun too. That is what I did for my own wedding. I have been in 6 weddings myself and I’ll never forget the getaway car one of my friend’s had…I don’t even know what it was called….I guess it was a truck that they turned the back into a covered country hay ride type experience. It was a lot of fun (we rode in it with the couple to the reception).
