Sandals Resorts, Caribbean leader in destination weddings, is offering betrothed couples their last chance to secure a memorable 11/11/11 wedding date at one of its 14 resorts in Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas. With triple digit dates occurring only 12 times every one thousand years, it is a rare opportunity that has to be snapped up - especially for forgetful spouses!
