Couples Negril and Swept Away offer a Wedcast, a live Web broadcast of a wedding ceremony.
Couples makes the extra effort to please newlyweds

Wedding dates at Couples resorts can be
reserved and booked online, according to
Karen Lanigan, general manager at Couples
“The online system is useful for some clients, but 40% to 50% of our guests prefer
the personal touch of a travel agent,” Lanigan said.
Clients such as newlywed Hazel Hurtz and
her husband are typical Couples guests.
“We’d never been to the Caribbean,”
Hurtz said. “But when our travel agent
told us the flight from Atlanta was just two
hours, our decision was made.”
A team of U.S. sales reps ensures that travel agents and tour operators are up-to-date
on Couples Resorts rates and promotions.
“And as long as we have space, we’re
happy to host fam trips so we can show the
properties to agents,” Lanigan said.
Wedding extras at Couples Resorts include the Wedcast, a live Web broadcast of
the ceremony ($375, available only in Negril
properties) and Honeymoon Wishes.com, a
gift registry for perks such as a candlelight
dinner on the beach or spa treatments.
Added-value packages at Couple Resorts
include the $269 Forever Yours, with a dinner served by a private waiter, and the $329
Match Made in Paradise, which comes with
a marriage proposal carved in fruit.
Suites at Couples Swept Away overlook the beach.
