WC in Nassau Bahamas

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on getting married this July in the Bahamas. I'm having my guests stay at the RIU because its ALL INCLUSIVE... but we decided to get married off the resort so it can be more private. Definitely think you should talk to an agent, you can get a group deal, Your guests will have an option to book on their too if they want. I've never been to the Wyndham but I heard it was nice.

Okay thanks . Besides the WC would you have any suggestion as far as location . People have being telling to find a resort that's all inclusive then plan the wedding at another location . Since your guest are staying at the Riu , do you recommend it .

I've stayed zt the riu twice. Its great. The only down side is that its small. Were getting married at the cloisters at one and only. Then taking our guests to restaurant Lucianos. You have to be careful cause costs can easily add up.

Hey.... i'm actually working with Anne Marie also! She's been great.I have been to the Bahamas, last time was in October before i finalized my dates (just to make sure we still loved it). I don't know if you will have a chance to check it out before your big day but you should try.You will love the Cloisters, its more prettier in person. Its very private and serene. Also went to Luciano's for dinner and the food was great. RIU is small but the atmosphere was really nice. Met a lot of people. Everyone was very friendly. Plus Atlantis was next door and I think we walked over almost every night.

 

Have you set your date? And I'm more then happy to help out and give you info on anything!!

Yes , we plan on visiting next year God willing. My only concern about the restaurant would it be a reception room. For cocktail hours and ballroom. i really want to hAve reception atmosphere . For the table , decorating, centerpiece . Because our guest list is pretty long around 150 people . I'm skeptical about the Riu. Even though its all inclusive .. Since I heard its small. How long will your reception be at the restaurant.

Were doing a 4 hr reception. 1 hour for cocktails and 3 for food and dancing. It would go til 10:30ish. The place has no problem if you stay longer..as long as its open bar. If you are having a large number of people chances are your reception would be outside (thats where we are doing ours). You can do centerpieces decor etc. They charge a lot.

I took the latest time slot which is 5pm, and it gives you 2 hours there. They didn't charge me more only because I'm actually getting married on a Tuesday. You are already paying the extra fee JUST to get married there, which if you are using Ann Marie is already in your package. When you speak to Ann Marie I think she will tell you. I'm not to sure how it works if you are choosing to get married on Fri, Sat or Sunday. I think she was telling me that usually they give brides who are actually staying at the One and Only or Atlantis later time slots. I think you would have to get married earlier? Not a 100% sure on this. But never the less best to secure that site as early as possible.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
