Breaking away from the pack of all-inclusive destination “I do” package templates, all four Jamaica-based Couples Resorts ensure that each bride and groom’s special day is as unique as the pair’s own personal love story.
“From sea shells to linen, flowers to location – we let our brides decide it all,” says Randy Russell, Chief Romance OfficerÆ and Senior Vice President at Couples Resorts. “Brides can bring any elements they want from home, at no extra cost, or take advantage of the customizable and upgradable options offered in each of our packages to make the wedding unique. At Couples Resorts, we understand that it’s their day, we feel lucky to just be a part of it.”
A wedding staff of seven, having made the destination wedding dreams of more than 10,000 twosomes come true over the years, are on hand to help customize each couple’s ceremony. According to Debbie Hall, the state-side wedding planner for all four Couples Resorts properties, “The first thing I ask a bride is ‘What is your vision for the day?’As soon as I know what she’s dreaming of, we work together on their options, making sure that we plan the wedding of her dreams. I then take care of working with the on-resort coordinators to ensure the couple has nothing to worry about once they arrive.”
