A Bahama Wedding :)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have been engaged for 3 years now we want to start looking around for an island for our wedding and honeymoon.

We want to do both at the same time same place (wedding + honeymoon).

Does anyone have any advise on which island the Bahamas would be great for a romantic wedding on a beautiful beach?

A nice hotel (we only need it for sleeping as after the wedding we want to do island hoping for our honeymoon).

Right now we really love Paradise island Atlantis Hotel but we are worried its a big too artificial?

Thank you for reading and we hope you can help us out choose one island for the wedding. cheesy.gif

The Bahamas is too beautiful to decide!

Kindest regards

Yoli

Welcome to the forum YolMax and congrats on your engagement!! My fiance and I have been engaged for two years and we'realso considering the Bahamas for our wedding location :)

 

I've emailed several different resorts and so far we really like the Radisson Grand Lucayan Resort in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island as well as the British Colonial Hilton Resort though I'm afraid it'll end up being out of budget. I've been working with Kasmine at the Lucayan and she's been really responsive and accommodating to all our requests and questions thus far, which is ALOT :) The resort has several ceremony and reception venues, we really like Breakers Cay for the ceremony site and the Pavillion Room for the reception which has several large windows overlooking the ocean.

The resort has several different menu and bar packages for every type of budget and they allow you to use any vendors you want as well as they do have an onsite casino and an all-inclusive plan if that's the way you want to go, again I haven't visited the resort but all my conversations thus far and the pictures I've seen have been great. I wish you good luck with your planning and if you have any other questions then feel free to message me :)

 

Best Regards,

 

Kelsey

Just recently got engaged and we're looking to have a destination wedding... We're looking to get married in the Bahamas.. not sure about Nassau :wub:   looking for something a little different.  Came across a resort in Cat Island called the The Blue Starfish Beach and Bungalows..   Has anyone ever been there or know about this location.. So far we are liking this location because it's just you and your wedding party - you rent the entire location... kinda like the idea of having a private location - what do you think?  I'm afraid that if we go to Nassau there will be to many weddings around ours  - not sure if this is a good idea... The location in cat island has my date available 03/14/2015 but they are just starting weddings there so this kinda worries me - by that time though they would have had plenty of weddings  -IDK just don't want to lose the date :(  We're also looking at the DR and Mexico but so im kinda still stuck on the private location rental...lol

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
