I was in Bermuda about 15 yrs ago and it was BEAUTIFUL. The beaches are gorgeous.
    We don't plan on taking a cruise. Flying in and staying at a hotel. I'm so confused on what to do.
    while you might not be able to swim in the water in November, you could definitely do a wedding on the beach. It's really not that cold. The weather is a little unpredictable, but the "colder" weather doesn't really start until December/January. I never went out with more than a blazer and a sweater through the entire winter, so if it's the weather you're worried about, please don't be.

    Your best bets for hotel and beach would be Elbow Beach or Coco Reef, but they are expensive. Another option would be to stay at a less expensive hotel, and look into having the wedding on a public beach. I know the world "public" scares a lot of people off, but at that time of the year, you shouldn't have to worry about crowd control. Warwick Long Bay, Stonehole Bay, Chaplin Bay, and John Smith's bay are the choices that come immediately to mind.

    Try getting in touch with an island planner, just to talk and get their opinions on what might work. They will know better than anyone how to go about things.

    Good luck! Things will work out, the island really is a perfect location no matter what time of year.

      Jen - Thanks so much for the information. I will look into the other 2 hotels that you mentioned. November is not a set time for our wedding. I think we are going to also look into the end of Aug beginning of Sept.

        a word of warning, August will be VERY hot. So if you do end up doing August, be sure to wear something very light that lets the air flow, and let your guests know the same.

        Best of luck! I'm so excited for all the Bermuda brides!!!

            The Reefs is supposed to be very nice but unless you are a small group, you can't get married on the beach. They have a deck called Caso's point which overlooks the beach that they do weddings on. I have a friend who got married there and then did a reception at their restaurants called Coconuts. The pictures looked beautiful.

            Trying to bring this thread back to life. I will be getting married at the Reefs in Bermuda next July. So excited! To those that were married there, how were your weddings?
