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.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
