Newbie Looking for Bahamas Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am looking to plan a December 2010 wedding in the Bahamas. I love the Versailles Garden at the Ocean Club but am debating whether to do the ceremony and reception here, or just the ceremony. Anyone also planning a wedding here? What have you decided to do for the reception. The price sheet they gave me listed some pretty crazy prices, I am wondering if they are negotioable... Happy Planning!

Hi,

Welcome to the forum and congrats!! I am so excited to see so many new Bahamas brides!! As for the Versailles Gardens...I really considered having my ceremony there but opted to keep my ceremony at the Atlantis on the beach. I don't think the price for the site is negotiable at all. I do know that many brides opt to have the ceremony there but the reception elsewhere such as at the Atlantis or or one of the restaurants that are located at the marina at the Atlantis. I think that if you have your reception indoors at the Atlantis and wedding ceremony elsewhere, you are not subject to their per person minimum. The Ocean Club is BEYOND pricey. There was a great article with pictures of a bride getting married in the Bahamas at the Versailles Gardens and having her reception at Club Martinque recently..I forget now but I posted it in the Bahamas forum.

Take a look in the Bahamas forum...there are many posts about the Versailles Gardens.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
