The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is nearly synonymous with “dream honeymoon destination.” If the resort is so romantic, why not get hitched there, too? Well, that’s exactly what the hotel was hoping you’d ask…

The resort will open a Bridal Boutique this Winter, featuring a resident “Romance Butler” who will take care of all planning and preparation for your dream Bora Bora wedding. The St. Regis partnered with Norwegian fashion designer Cecilie Melli to create a line of exclusive wedding dresses available for rent or purchase at the boutique. If you’re looking to elope in paradise or plan the ultimate destination wedding, there’s certainly no better place.

“Our new wedding program brings the concept of one-stop-shopping to those brides planning a destination wedding, which in our case happens to be at of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world,” says general manager Michael Schoonewagen. Interested? The St. Regis Bora Bora Bridal Boutique will open in Winter 2013, and prices start at $400 for wedding dress rental.

And if you happen to find yourself in California this month, you have a shot to get in on one of the hotel’s first weddings by bidding on one for charity: On October 20, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resorts will auction off a $250,000 wedding at The Carousel of Hope charity event in Beverly Hills, CA. The dream wedding includes 10 nights in the Resort’s 13,000+ square foot Royal Estate Villa, made up of three separate pavilions that revolve around a private pool. It also includes a “Lady Bora Bora” gown from the new dress line, a photographer, a rehearsal dinner at the Resort’s signature restaurant, Lagoon by Jean-Georges, as well as all meals AND round trip tickets from Los Angeles to Tahiti on Air Tahiti Nui. (Also included: Airport transfers, water activities and 5 nights accommodations for up to 5 additional couples to witness your big day). Good luck to anyone bidding!
