    So I'm from the uk and have decided to get married in the bahamas. I have been engaged five years and have finally decided to tie the knot. I want it to be 2015 giving my guest enough time to save. I have up yo 60 guest going out with me but I don't know where to start looking. All I do is read and search on the Internet but seem to get no where . I looked at atlantic but to me the 150 per person seemed a bit expensive. I wanted to know if anyone could direct me to other islands that are nice with 4* accommodation for a private intimate ceremony and reception! Possibly villas for all my guest to stay for s week. I don't really want the reception on the beach but maybe on a nice gazebo deck or green any suggestions please I'm lost!!! Tonia

      Does it have to be in the Bahamas? You don't have to do it at Atlantis, but there are other private islands on the Bahamas that you can consider. Check out www.stylemepretty.com for ideas of other places in the Bahamas. There some really beautiful weddings there in other places. I hope this helps. 

      Beaches Turks & Caicos - 30 Rooms booked with 80 guests confirmed so far!

          I would love it to be a nice quiet island don't mind which one. But I think I am set on the bahamas as I have never been and neither have my guest.

                I would suggest contacting the Dolphin Beach Resort. They do weddings all the time and listen to what type of wedding you want and fit your needs accordingly. It's just a suggestion, don't know if it fits all of your criteria. Here's the link to their wedding page. http://www.dolphinbe...x-weddings.html

                  Tonia....I recently got married in Exuma at the Chat N Chill. I highly recommend both the island and the venue. My guests loved it all and the water color in the Bahama is absolutely beautiful! It is hard to find other brides who are getting married in the out islands so let me know if you would like more info on my experience... I would be happy to help!

                    My wedding is in Nassau on Paradise Island.. but i would definitely tell you call my dj, he is sooo much more you can pick his brain for ideas, i called him and we spoke for 45 minutes and pretty much hashed out all of the generally details for my wedding.

                    he calls himself Jose The Party Maker, and i found him on a website partybahamas.net but heard about him on this forum and the Knot.com and when i inquired locally his name was everywhere, I booked him and so far i am very happy with his response and attention.

                    Consider the main Island of nassau if any because when i initially looked into my wedding i thought about Abaco and the logistics were crazy.

                    keep in touch
