Paradise Island Bride!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Just thought I'd share some info if you want it! I'm getting married May 21, 2010 in Bahamas. The ceremony is at The Cloister's and the reception is being held at the RIU where my fiance and I as well as all of our guests are staying.

 

I'm using Matthew Sweeting as the minister.

I'm still working on flowers - I'm thinking Wildflowers.

Anyone have info on a good bakery? I want cupcakes with a small cake ontop that we can cut.

 

Help a bride out! If anyone has any questions please contact me :)

Hi There -

 

As Full House Floral stated above.. I will be getting married in the Bahamas, at the Sheraton Nassau Cable beach.

 

I don't know if there is any relation, but I'm using Full House Floral Event and Design for flowers and have spoken with Michael for our ceremony and reception. I obviously have not seen how it's going to turn out yet. If personality, business sense and having my best interest at hand is reflected in Michaels work I have 100% confidence that are wedding day will be perfect!! They have competitive pricing and have been an absolute pleasure to work with!!! I can't be happier that I found them. They came recommended and am glad I got the reccomendation.

 

My minister is Matthew as well. He has been great!

 

I used Swiss Pastry Shoppe and have been working with Manfred, once again, a pleasure and have complete confidence in him. He worked with us all the way, we sent him a few photos and he is creating what we want. His prices were better than anything else I found. He was also recommended to me.

 

The DJ I am using is Jose Ageeb. I spoke with him one night, and booked him that night. I have heard from many in the Bahamas that he was a great choice.

 

Where are using Majestic Tours for transportation. I don't have much to say about them. They've been good at responding to emails and if they get us there and back they've done their job :) We had a few special requests and they are working with us to make it happen

 

I plan to write a full review of everything and everyone after the wedding. It may be too late for you by then but I can let you know how everything went.

 

I will say that I am confident in everything I've done and the people I have chosen and think the day is going to be perfect!!!

 

If you need to know more feel free to contact me directly maddog1991@gmail.com

First of all..Congrats!! The Cloisters is a STUNNING setting to have a wedding. Md2002 gave you some great recommendations. I too am getting married by Mathew Sweeting....he must make a mint!! LOL As for flowers, I am using a combination of Real Touch flowers for the bridal party and I have hired Floral Arts to do the flowers at the ceremony and reception as well as the decor. Believe it or not...their prices are much cheaper than Wildflowers. That being said...if I had known...I might have gone with the person that MD2002 chose...so....look into them.

 

I tried to get the same DJ as MD2002 but he could not personally play at my wedding as my wedding date is a National Holiday in the Bahamas and he was busy...go figure? I did go with other recommendations of Mr. Sweeting and booked a DJ and steel pan drum player for GREAT prices. If you are interested in the info...send me a PM. Good luck and again..Congrats!!

Congratulations and nice choice on the ceremony location! We are also staying at the Riu, but haven't decided if we are getting married there or at another location (like the beautiful Cloisters). How does the Riu reception work if you aren't getting arried there? Are you having a private reception or dining at one of the restaurants?

Hi, I am getting married at Riu Bahamas. How was your reception?  Would appreciate any advice. 

Also, how/would you suggest getting hair and make up done.  Thanks in advance.

Wildflowers does a great job with their centerpieces and their bouquets.  They also have a planner, Natalie (she may be the owner, but I'm not sure) who does a really great job.

 

The hardest part of destination weddings, imho, is getting everything organized while being so far away.  Natalie does a great job making sure everything is taken care of and that you and your guests don't have to worry about anything on the wedding day.

 

You can see examples of the bouquets, centerpieces, and other wedding florals she did here.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
