To answer your question about the distance, it is about 45 minutes away from everything and a taxi costs about $60, so everyone really does have to stay there.. Some family tried to stay in Freeport, but ended up just getting a room at OBB for the night of our wedding b/c they weren't comfortable driving back late at night.. it's a shame b/c it is a beautiful property and I think other people have had better experiences, but I would definitely recommend you look at other resorts...

I got married at OBB in July. I also never wrote a review, but fortunately I had a much better experience than DGG. I really loved the resort, everyone was so nice and accommodating, and it is (I imagine) a much better experience than getting married at a huge resort because not only is it gorgeous, but you have the place to yourselves, it is much more intimate, and it is easy to get around and find other people, which is nice when you have a smaller group.
That being said, you really can't have people staying at other places on the island. The hotel is simply too far away. We had about 50 people at our wedding, everyone stayed on property for at least 2 nights, some for more, and no one seemed to mind being secluded. We had lots of events and the staff is very friendly and easygoing about letting everyone stay up and hang out by the pool, on the beach, etc, so we never got bored.
I would write a whole long review but I don't think enough people are looking into this resort for it to be worth it. Feel free to message me privately if you have other questions!

I am getting married at Old Bahama Bay in May of 2012 and was hoping to touch base with anyone regarding information about their experience/s there. Please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wouldn't mind answering a few questions.
