I read many comments here about how expensive it is to use the Atlantis. I don't dispute that it is more expensive then most of your run of the mill AI resort. At the same time, Bahamas in general is costly, and specifically Paradise Island. Also, please keep in mind that in many ways in the hospitality industry this is considered a 6 star resort, so I am pretty certain it is going to be amazing for us.
Just wanted to give those of you on the fence a little encouragement. I have 3 and a bit months to go, and I am just stoked.

My wedding ceremony is actually at the French Cloisters and I am very anxious about deciding where to have my reception on Atlantis because it is hard for me to chose based on only pictures. Also, my wedding is scheduled for 1:00 and I am scared to have an outside wedding at 2 because it may be too hot. There is a possibility that I will be able to move the wedding to 4:00 but I will not know this until 60 days prior to the wedding date. This makes me want to chose one of the ballrooms just in case. Did you see any other inside venues that would be nice for a wedding reception? We are expecting about 50 people.

but with investigation and knowing the islands. The hotel standards for those travelling and the lack of discounted rooms , it just didn't seem practical to pay 400 dollars a night for my guest rooms and have them pay for the expensive flight to the islands as some were coming from Britain also.
So we looked around and Atlantis has been another destination want for us.
We looked at other sites in the bahamas and they all seemed to have the 3000 dollar site fee and the bonus about the Atlantis was knowing you would get a modernized room for a 50 percent discount with rooms over 10.
so we were sold.
But the details and the 150 min was sold that we could use this for a welcoming party and also our reception. but as it has turned out we had to argue alot as this was how it was sold to us as the reception itself for a basic reception totalled to be about 175 a person.
So far we are negotiating and cutting out some things that would have been nice. luckily I am not worried about making everyone happy and they all understand but definately the Atlantis makes it difficult to do the little perks or even the simple luxuries that one would have at their wedding.
If anyone has any more questions please ask me and I can provide more details.

For music, I am thinking of a saxaphonist for the reception and a DJ, Junkanoo Rush and fire dancers for the reception. The lady at the French Clositers recoomended a Mr. Frank Mullings, but I don't know what he does. Music and entertainment is very important to me because my family LOVES a party!
I am looking at Floral Arts as my florist, but they are really expensive and I am hoping to get recommendations for other qulaity florists that are reasonably priced. Someone recommended Island Destinations as an option, and I am now waiting on their quote and pictures from their previous events.
I am looking at Tim Aylen for my photography but would love additional recommendations here. I am hoping to find a videographer and photographer within the same company. The photos have to be top notch!
I have no idea who to use as my officiant or videographer.

I am getting married in May, and have booked Mathew Sweeting (The island Preacha) as my officient. He comes very highly recomended, and has been great to deal with.
In terms of florists, I have the vendors posted on my bio, and for more info PM me, and I can privetly give you info.
Tim Aylen is my photographer, I personally did not like the selection that Atlantis offered..
In terms of Vidiographer, I know my officient's site has a couple of recomendations, but I opted not to go with one, so I can't comment on that.
I am looking for some info myself, so I would love to connect with you before you go so that I can ask you to see if you can look into some stuff
