Ministry of Tourism Teams With Sandals Resort and Association of Bridal Consultants To Host Wedding Planners
More than 70 destination wedding planners (DWP) from throughout the United States of America assembled recently at the Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort in Nassau for a four-day wedding conclave and the unveiling of Sandals new ‘Aisle to Isle’ wedding program.
The initiative was a collaboration of Sandals Resort International, the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) Unique Vacations and The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation.
The four-day immersive event, deemed the Wedding Event of the Year, was opened to ABC destination wedding planners only and included workshops on marketing, the Bahamas wedding and honeymoon product and destination experiences.
In addition to intense educational training and enjoying the amenities of Sandals luxurious all- inclusive resort, the group also participated in a city tour, 5-Star Global Gourmet dining, cocktail receptions, a catamaran harbor cruise and an authentic, surprise full wedding renewal ceremony for two ABC members, who experienced, first-hand Sandals magical weddings and the pulsating junkanoo culture of The Bahamas.
Sandals’ new ‘Aisle to Isle’ program was designed in response to a proprietary study, which revealed that millennial brides and grooms seek inspiration and information above all else when planning their wedding celebration. The creation of the ‘Aisle to Isle’ program features inspirations from décor, venues to food and beverage and provide brides with endless wedding choices.
