This option will have pictures with the ocean in the background but sandy beaches in the backdrop as well. You won’t need to get your toes in the sand for these location options.
#5 Overwater Gazebo
The Sandals Over-the-water gazebos are among the more romantic additions. Here, you can say “I do,” nestled inside a beautiful gazebo that is directly over the water. If you want to be near the ocean but don’t want your toes in the sand this option is ideal. This option will have pictures over the water.

#7 Garden Gazebo
There’s something about a tropical Caribbean garden wedding that makes you feel very special. At one with nature, you’ll be able to say “I do,” in a breezy gazebo that’s surrounded with greenery and other tropical plants. These locations make perfect reception locations as well because they have more privacy. Garden gazebos are available at most Sandals, and all Beaches resorts.
#8 Resort Chapel

Is there anything else you’d like to share about the destination wedding venues?
Carlie: Destination weddings are special, even more so with these unique wedding venues, each accompanied by backdrops of palm trees, white sand beaches and turquoise waters. An all-inclusive resort wedding dissolves a lot of the hassle traditional weddings come with. Not only are the food and (alcoholic) drinks included, during everyone’s stay, you’ll also be eligible for a free wedding, if you stay 3 nights or more at Sandals or Beaches
