By: Advertorial

Preston Bailey, the internationally celebrated event designer and wedding planner, has partnered with Sandals Resorts to create a selection of exceptional wedding packages available exclusively at Sandals and Beaches Resorts.

Preston, author of Design for Entertaining and Fantasy Weddings, has personally created one-of-a-kind events for celebrity clients such as Donald and Melania Trump, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Matt Lauer, Donna Karan and Oprah Winfrey, and now WeddingMoon" guests can enjoy a Preston Bailey wedding experience in the idyllic island surroundings of Sandals and Beaches Caribbean properties.

The packages, offered as an enhancement to the WeddingMoon"  program, include inspired settings for the ceremony, striking bouquets and flowers, elegant table décor and innovative keepsakes all designed by Preston Bailey.

Recognized as the world’s preeminent event designer, Preston brings an incomparable level of artistry and creativity to projects for all clients. He applies his expertise to produce one-of-a kind surroundings that evoke awe-inspiring reactions with elegant materials including a rich interplay of flowers, fabrics, props and lighting that meld to create an ambiance of color, texture and mood. Often completely transforming a space, his designs are inspired by his love of nature, art, history, architecture and global cultures.

These offerings from Preston Bailey allow those seeking the perfect destination wedding, an increasingly popular trend, a higher level of choices for their special day. Each of the four packages The Floral Elegance Collection ($1,700), The Water Lilly Collection ($2,600), The Seascape Collection ($3,600) and The Crystal Collection ($5,000) includes beautifully designed wedding settings and decor such as fresh contemporary floral screens or a tree filled with orchids, crystals and candlelight.

 Specialty wedding cakes complement the exceptional designs and the beautiful surroundings. Preston has also created stylish keepsakes for the bride, groom and guests that include delightful favors such as exotic petal tossers, palm fans, and elegant amenity boxes.

Exclusively for the bride, Preston has designed a selection of unique bouquets that can be kept after the ceremony as a remembrance. Bouquets are available in a variety of colors and styles, such as the new pomander, a round arrangement that hangs from the wrist. For the groom, specialty bowties and boutonnieres that incorporate local plants and flowers, such as palm and mini pineapples, are available.

For the ultimate in luxury, Sandals Resorts and Preston Bailey are also developing one of the most lavish wedding experiences as the upper tier in package offerings, which includes private jet, special location, a once-in-a-lifetime musical performance and more.

Sandals Resorts developed the WeddingMoon" concept over a decade ago which is the union of the wedding and honeymoon in one idyllic Sandals Resort location. Currently WeddingMoon" guests who stay for seven nights or longer receive their wedding ceremony compliments of the resort.

In addition, for those staying six nights in a premium category or higher, Sandals gives the happy couple a complimentary wedding gift, their choice of a stunning 16-piece set of Waterford stemware or a 20-piece set of Wedgwood china.

Sandals is also pleased to make available to guests elegant and personalized wedding accessories by the noted Beverly Clark, original wedding cakes designed by the renowned Sylvia Weinstock and an exclusive line of Sandals destination wedding gowns by Dessy Creations.
