Eco-Chic Weddings at 9 Beaches, Bermuda


SANDYS, Bermuda – Bermuda’s ultra-casual 9 Beaches resort leads the way in offering eco-chic weddings for the green at heart.  The resort itself is environmentally-friendly, and now couples can opt for an ecologically sound ceremony in one of the most spectacular natural settings in the Northern Hemisphere. 


Highlights of the 9 Beaches Eco-Chic Wedding Package include:


§         6 Bottles of organic champagne

§         3- or 4-tiered organic wedding cake

§         Organic boutonniere

§         Organic bouquet

§         Organic floral cake topper

§         Eco-centerpiece: simple but elegant centerpiece of carefully gathered 9 Beaches sand with naturally harvested seashells and a clean burning pillar candle set in a clear cylinder vase


Couples can help Bermuda’s environment by planting the nearly extinct Bermuda Cedar tree at 9 Beaches, commemorating their union.  The couple can label their seedling with a personalized name plate, so when they return for their anniversaries, they can visit their own tree at 9 Beaches.


Pricing for 9 Beaches Eco-Chic Wedding starts at $9,140 and accommodates 40 people.  For a full description of the Eco-Chic Wedding offerings, please visit 9 Beaches downloadable Wedding Planner at


9 Beaches is especially proud of its Xeric garden landscaping used throughout the resort and dotted with artificial Longtail nests to encourage the native bird population.  9 Beaches’ “xeriscape” uses native plants requiring no additional watering.  (Derived from the Greek “xeros,” meaning dry, xeriscape describes plantings intended to conserve water, often using native varietals.) 9 Beaches’ xeriscape is attractive and sustainable, conserves water and is based on sound horticultural practices.


With all of the accommodations in cabanas on stilts, there is little environmental impact to the land.  Other environmental aspects include:


  • Battery operated transportation around resort
  • Solar powered lighting and hot water
  • Caught rainwater for use in the hotel
  • Minimal air conditioning; main house air-conditioned only in hot months.  Doors open for fresh air.
  • Motion sensors on exterior cabana lights
  • Pedal bicycles for transportation
  • Local produce


Of course, 9 Beaches utilizes eco-basics such as replacing sheets and towels only upon request by the guests, asking guests to conserve water and serving drinking water on request only.  The daily newspaper is provided in the lobby only, not in every room, and the staff reuses paper in the fax machine and photocopier.  Marketing is primarily electronic, saving paper used on traditional printed materials.
