Destination weddings are a wonderful way to celebrate your nuptials either simply as a couple; with a handful of close friends and family; or with a huge entourage of guests. When my husband and I got married at Sandals South Coast, the whole experience was virtually stress-free, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to get married in paradise with our closest family members.
