Bahamas Bride- October 9, 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My name is Anthea and I am planning my DW for next October in the Bahamas. I am currently trying to pin down a venue and I am torn between Pelican Bay at Lucaya and Our Lucya Resort on Grand Bahama Island. At first I wanted to have my wedding in Nassau, but I could not find any hotels that I think will have affordable rates for all my guests.

 

I am also confused in choosing wedding colors because it is a Fall wedding, but I will be in the Caribbean so I don't want to use colors that will be too dark. Ugh!! Any help on color schemes would be much appreciated!

 

My fiance and I are very excited to be getting married in a tropical oasis with our close friends and family. Any help that any other Bahamas brides can give me would mean the world to me. I hope to do a site visit by the end of the year so whatever I find out I will definitely share with everyone! Thanks for all your help in advance!

Thanks Amanda! I considered Paradise Island, but I found it to be pricey. I don't want my guests paying a ridiculous amount of money. I also have kids coming to the wedding does the Riu permit children?

Congrats and welcome to the forum! As for you color scheme, go with whatever you want! You can pretty much throw away your typical wedding fuax pas when doing a DW you're in a tropical place and there aren't any restrictions on your colors and decor.

Hi Anthea! Congrats and welcome to the forum! I am also having the same dilemma! I want to get married in the Bahamas, but it is a little pricey. I got a rate for the RIU Paradise Island and thought it was too much money. We'll see what happens. :-S

Good luck and happy planning!! :)

    • 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.
