Grand Bahama - any reccomomendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi all -

 

I am looking at pelican Bay at Lucaya to get marrried in Grand Bahama. Has anyone been there? I am interested in a beach wedding but some of thr pix I have seen there look a little dumpy with the chain link fence in the background. I do like all of the reviews and the price of the hotel seems very good. Any other suggestions in Grand Bahama? Most of our family is in the Maryland and Pennsylavnia area so we are looking for a short flight from there and the Bahamas look like the best option. Suggestions welcome!!

 

Thanks so much

Amy

a good photographer can make your wedding look like a million bucks - I've been to Pelican Bay, but not photographed a wedding there. The wedding I did was at the Renaissance.

 

I know there are lots of flight options, some are quite inexpensive, and tons of things to do for guests once they get to the islands, too. Good luck planning!

I am getting married at Old Bahama Bay on Grand Bahama Island.. I am excited about my wedding - but at least so far I wouldn't recommend it. Their wedding planner is really slow and they keep adding on huge fees so I feel like we're being ripped off a lot.

I am also coming for Philly/NY area - there used to be a lot of direct flights to Grand Bahama Island but now there is only 1-2 from Philly, none from NY at least on our date. I think you should think about Nassau - flights are a lot cheaper and there are a lot more direct flights..

Or try to enter the win a free bahama wedding - there's another thread about it or you can find it at the OBB website Old Bahama Bay Luxury Oceanfront Resort in the Bahamas

I wish I could have entered it! Good luck with planning!

We are also looking into Pelican Bay. Does anyone else have more information on this hotel? From the pictures that I've seen, the private beach looks lovely.

I did a beach wedding a couple of weeks ago from a Pelican Bay wedding. I was a little disappointed with the house in the background but it is a beautiful, natural beach and I still got great pics. Im only sorry the wedding is still unfinished because I would love to show it. I just avoided that background and any good photographer will. For the wedding I did, they had the wedding guests come on a ferry which was nice.The coordinator was very professional and the hotel itself was great too.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
