That sounds great! congratulatins to you, that is something less to worry about! It's crazy how quickly things change, we moved our date to August 22, 2013 and are looking into working with Anne Marie from weddings in the bahamas. She appears to be great! She has answered all my quesitons and concerns and has really put me at ease as far as how she goes about helping the bride pla the wedding and whatnot. We are still looking at room rates, as well. We had looked into Punta Cana (which looks gorgeous, by the way) but the consensus appears to be the Bahamas, happy planning and I look forward to hearing how the process is going for you!

I will def recommend Anne Marie.. Although I didn't plan to use her or anyone... But she was the one person I talked to that didn't try to gouge the prices to ridiculous rates!.. I'm sure she will help you plan something amazing!!..
Atlantis seems to put all really great roomo rates! Compared to their normal rates.. But my company just sent over 100 employess there and they all came back and said the food was overpriced and I hated to do that to my guests for our wedding.. But we def plan to visit there sometime soon!.. I sre am going to miss getting married at the Cloisters though.. (
Thank You, and I can't wait to hear and see all about your planning!..

budget is important for the couple and the guests, there are always options.

I second that, Anna Marie and her staff are awesome. Although I wont be using her as my WP because I have one included with my venue, Iâ€™ve witnessed her work at the Poop Deck-Sandy Port while dining/site visiting. It was great, you wont be sorry. Iâ€™ve heard great things about her.
Budget is definitely key because in reality you still have a life to live after the wedding. The Atlantis, although pricey in some aspects, was a great choice because itâ€™s a special place to me. Like Whatsup said, there are always options. Iâ€™m giving my guests the options of 5 star accommodations all the way to 2.5 star, along with timeshare rental options if they choose. I even selected a date that coordinates with multiple cruise ships if that was the journey they chose to take. I felt so bad for one post I saw about a bride that choose another venue over her ideal because it was more cost effective for her guest. Now weeks before her wedding her guest list isnâ€™t even 75% of what she thought it would be and now sheâ€™s regretting her choice. In the end, the day should be about what the couple wants, but definitely explore and offer all options. Although Atlantis is great, I will definitely be pushing my guest to explore Nassau and local eateriesâ€¦after all its their vaca too and there are many great reasonable restaurants like the Poop Deck, Caf© Matise, and lets not forget the Fish Fry!
