    LOL! May 10 is mothers day this year, so our wedding is there present! Also, the Saturday before we get there this past season's Bachelorette is getting married in Bermuda. I'm not sure where though!

      Hi Bermuda Brides,

      I am new to the site and I have just started planning my wedding for the end of August or the beginning of September. The wedding is going to be on the smaller side...probably about 40 people (all of whom will be traveling to the island from either California or Massachusetts). I have been looking into wedding planners Bermuda Bride, Sweet Dreams Bermuda, and Rose of Sharon. Has anyone had experience with any of them? For the ceremony and reception I am considering Elbow Beach, Coco Reef, and the Pink Beach Club. Any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      BermudaBride2009

        Welcome!!!


        There is a few of us Bermuda Brides to be.

        For a planner I'm using Barbara from The Wedding Salon, she's a little slow on responding, but so far has been good to work with. I'm sure I'll be in contact with her more as we get closer.

        Resort wise, let me be the first one to say, Coco Reef is beautiful, however EXPENSIVE!!!

        We are personally using 9 Beaches, I love the look and it was the right price.

        Are you flying or cruising? Also some places depending on the people you can't get married on the beach due to it not being large enough, but a planner will be able to tell you that.

        GL with planning and keep us posted!!

          Hello and congrats!!!

          All of the resorts you've mentioned are probably good choices, but as Cattie mentioned regarding Coco Reef, they are all on the pricier side. This of course is due to their prime location on the South Shore, with their own beaches.

          In regards to the planners, I've only heard of Bermuda Bride myself, but I'm sure whoever you go with would be a great choice. I too worked with Barbara Whitecross from the Wedding Salon and have no complaints in regards to her work. She's professional, thorough, and knows how to get the job done. I've also heard great things about Bermuda Bride though, so what it comes down to is personal preference.

          One piece of advice I can't emphasize enough is to wear something light if you're planning on an August wedding, it will be HOT. Other than that, have fun with whatever you decide! Take a look at the Southampton Princess, The Reefs, 9 Beaches, and The Pompano Beach Resort for other ideas, there are so many places to choose from.

          Good luck with your planning!

            I am doing the same thing as you on the Carnival Pride...Coco Reef Prices are very good
