Honeymoons & Destination Weddings

Remember the buzz when Eva Longoria married Tony Parker on July 7th (07/07/07)? This year is gearing up to look the same, as couples clamor to wed on August 8th (08/08/08), a date associated with love and eternity in many cultures. Check out how these hotels and resorts are helping couples commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime event:

August 8th brides will have extra reason to celebrate with a Lucky Love promotion from the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino and the Sonesta Great Bay Beach Resort & Casino in St. Maartin. If you marry anywhere on 08/08/08 and book two or more nights at either hotel before November 2008, you'll receive a complimentary bottle of champagne and an American breakfast in bed for two.

Not tying the knot in August? You can still take part in the special day with Sandals Resorts's Eight Steps of Love package, offered at any of the company's 12 resorts. The package includes breakfast in bed, a one hour morning sail and a gourmet picnic basket lunch. You'll also receive massages, a candlelight dinner on the beach, and other romantic treats. Check out the entire package (fittingly priced at $888 per couple) here. —Kathryn Papanek
