Yes, my wedding photos are in an album…digital images weren’t very popular then.
As I look back at my wedding which took place in Jamaica, I wish I had taken advantage of the beautiful backdrop of the ocean or the lush, beautiful gardens of a fabulous resort.
My wedding was cool, but there are so many things I would do differently if I was planning it now. We are talking over-water chapel with stunning ocean backdrops, horse-drawn carriage, fireworks etc.
Uhm, I think I am the beach wedding kind of girl!
And…I would have this fabulous beach wedding for less than a traditional wedding.
Are you kidding me?
Nope…it’s all true!
If you want to have a casual, intimate ceremony, outdoor weddings are magical. There’s something about hosting a beach or garden wedding that makes the whole affair feel more relaxed and leisurely. The scenery of either makes for breathtaking photographs and natural light tends to be the best friend of your photographer.
As you may already know, there is lots of luxury resorts with luxury inclusions in the Caribbean and Mexico. These resorts offer inclusions that are designed to dazzle and impress you. Everything you need is available so your your experience can be complete.
So what do you know about these luxury resorts that offer more than the ordinary…they offer luxury inclusions a a great value!
My son has a large vocabulary and he uses these words that have my mind wondering whatever does that word mean. In an effort to appear that I’m “in the know” I go along with the conversation but as soon as I can, I get on my device to type in the word and get the meaning.
Most of my clients want an “all-inclusive” experience…and they tell me that they do. I typically share with them what is included. But it never dawned on me that a list of inclusions would probably not be enough.
So Mr. and Mrs. went off to a luxury resort in Jamaica and I felt confident that they would have a great time. I was excited when Mrs. called me to report on her trip (I get the warm and fuzzies when couples come back and gush over their amazing experience!)…I can’t help it! I am extremely passionate about what I do and I’m in the business of transforming lives.
So how was your trip, I asked.
“It was good. But my hubby only had 4 shrimp on his plate. That was disappointing. We thought we would have more to eat”.
Did you order more? You know you can eat at every single restaurant and you can have more than one entree, I said to her.
They were both unaware that they could have more than one dish or could eat whenever they wished.
If you looked up the word “all-inclusive,” Wikepedia defines it this way:
An all – inclusive resort is a holiday resort that includes at a minimum lodging, three meals daily, soft drinks, most alcoholic drinks, gratuities, and possibly other services in the price. Many also offer sports and non-motorized water-sports and other activities that are included in the price as well.
At White Sand Travel, we work with top rated resorts and you can expect “all-inclusive” to mean the following luxury inclusions:
Luxury Accommodations: Rooms and suites that can be as opulent and sexy as you can imagine and can include a dedicate concierge team or butler services
Gourmet Dining: Enjoy amazing cuisines from themed restaurants from around the world, by world renowned chefs. Wine pairing makes the experience even more delectable.
Beverages: We’re talking unlimited premium spirits 24/7 at various locations on the resort…at dinner, at bars, swim-up bars or even in your room.
Entertainment: Daily themed shows and events ranging from fire-shows, big screen movies, live bands etc. You won’t be bored.
Activities: Non-motorized water-sports, includes scuba, snorkeling (some include lessons,) land sports such as tennis, basketball, racquetball etc.
Tipping: Tipping is at your discretion.
You can do as I do…
Most often I travel for 5-days/4-nights and I may have a choice of dining from 6-16 different restaurants (depends on the resort.) It’s almost unlikely that I will be able to dine at all the restaurants so I may have dinner at one and dessert at another. However, I try to dine at as many different restaurants as possible. It may appear that the portions are small but appetizers and drinks can really fill those spaces. And unlike my clients above, order two entrees…no one will tell you know or bring you an extra check.
We are experts in designing the type of experience that has the luxury inclusions that won’t leave you feeling like you’ve not had enough. Let us help you select the option that best suit your needs.
