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.

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
