SunSwept to offer free wedding plans

CASTRIES, St. Lucia -- Beginning Jan. 4, SunSwept Resorts' properties, LeSport in St. Lucia and LaSource in Grenada, will offer complimentary wedding arrangements.

Event arrangement costs for couples staying a minimum of seven nights are covered by the daily inclusive rate.

Wedding arrangements include obtaining the marriage license; legal and registrar's fees; a reception with sparkling wine; the services of witnesses (if required); a decorated wedding arch and table, and a table at dinner for the wedding party.

In addition, members of the wedding party receive a 10% discount off the daily room rate.

There is an additional charge for flowers, wedding cake, photography services and live music.

Nightly rates at LeSport, which features 154 rooms and suites, range from $195 to $365. At the 100-room LeSource, nightly rates range from $175 to $365.

Rates are per person, double, and are valid through Dec. 22.

To arrange a wedding, the governments in St. Lucia and Grenada require couples to provide valid passports and, if applicable, copies of divorce papers.

Those under age 21 must have documents signed by a parent or guardian and a witness granting permission to wed. Proof of single status also is required.

Participants must allow three business days on the island prior to the wedding for paperwork to be processed.
