    I'll be getting married at Atlantis in late January 2012 and I'm so behind in the planning process (just had my first baby)! I've looked over several threads and am feeling overwhelmed but hopeful, so many great ideas. Our wedding is on a Monday evening (approx. 50 guests) and I'm wondering about the music selection. Has anyone hired the steel drums at the reception or do most people do the DJ? Also would love ideas as to where to head after for some drinks and dancing. Thanks!

      Hi, Im a newbie at this and would love to have our wedding at Atlantis but Im affraid it will be to exspensive for our guest! Do they give you any kind of deals if you have a large party book? I just feel like a lot of the All Inclusive's are wedding factory's but that is the more affordable way for people to go doing destination weddings.

        Atlantis gives very reasonable room rates when you book with a large group, I believe it's the rest of the "extras" that make it expensive (i.e., food, golf, spa, etc.). We realize most guests on our list will not be able to go due to cost so we are planning on having a cocktail party when we return home.

          I am getting married next December at the Atlantis and the room rates given to our guests are great. They have been so helpful with all of my questions. I know Atlantis can be a bit expensive but I have heard so many members of my family/friends say they will never have an opportunity to go to the Atlantis for such inexpensive room rates. 

           

          I have contacted Wildflowers Bahamas for our decor needs. I have started pricing DJs and other vendors for music, photography, etc but I'm just in the beginning stages. If you have any questions please feel free to PM me at anytime!

            Would you mind telling me the group rate you recieved for your guests? The Atlantis is one of our leading options right now and I am just curious how much it will be per night for our guests.THANKS!!!

              I just visited Atlantis for the Poker Stars tournament and Electric Blue party January 14th That hotel is amazing! I was photographing the event. I got to see some beautiful weddings on my off day. They are so accommodating! Even for vendors. and the hotel has so many wonderful spots for portraits! Let me know if you're looking for a photographer!

                  iheartcapri- Depending on what time of year you are traveling to Atlantis will effect the room discount that they give. For us rates were discounted to $140-299 per night plus taxes, which can be a little bit expensive.

                    May I ask when your wedding is?   My FI and I are in the process of choosing a date for 2013. We are looking at staying at the Atlantis resort and having our ceremony at the Cloisters at One and Only.
