Private Island Excursion Weddings?

Recommended Posts



I'm looking into the Bahamas for our DW, but I'd prefer to do it on a more private beach where there won't be other people all up in my ceremony. I'm also considering doing a 3-day Bahamas cruise where one of the days is an excursion to go to the wedding. (I'm not worried about legal formalities, I can always take care of that here in Ohio if need be.) I was wondering if anyone had any research/experience with weddings where you charter a boat to go to a private island?


Some possibilities I've found while searching online are:


unique wedding ceremonies, wedding locations and bahamas weddings on private islands in the exumas

(i've done this as an excursion before, and had a total blast! i was probably 16 when we did it (now 25) and we still talk about how unique and fun it was. however, 15k is a little more than i was looking to spend, and i'm not sure about mixing wedding with iguanas and sharks and stingrays. haha. however, i know it's a totally gorgeous location, even if the adventure part was left out.)




Seahorse Sailing Adventures Daily Excursions from Atlantis, Nassau Paradise Island Bahamas




Sea Island Adventures, Nassau, Bahamas, private island, beach, watersports, snorkel, lunch, coral reefs, historical sightseeing cruises




Barefoot Sailing Cruises, Nassau, Bahamas, sail, cruise, snorkel, evening, dinner, barefoot, private charter, Bahamas

(this doesn't look ideal b/c i think i will have more than 26 guests)




Nassau Paradise Island Bahamas snorkel, party cruise, Bahamas beach party

(Skeptical of the name "Party cat." lol)


Please let me know if any of you have and experience/research info you can share about these trips or any other options I haven't discovered yet.


Thanks so much!

Don't know if you're interested, but there are also some small resorts on private islands (or mostly private islands) that offer wedding packages. I was looking into Small Hope Bay Lodge for a while, but vetoed it because of the variety of people I have coming.

Harbour Island is a really nice getaway location. Many celebrities vacation there because of the seclusion. I know that Sasha Souza's book features a destination wedding in Harbour Island. Bahamas Fast Ferries does a day excursion to Harbour Island from Nassau. Check out their website bahamasferries.com for details.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
