Getting Married in The Bahamas
Why to Choose The Bahamas for your Destination Wedding
TOP 5 REASONS TO HAVE YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN THE BAHAMAS
Sun on the bride’s face, sand between the grooms toes, and ocean spray coating the dress and the tux, The Bahamas offers one of the most unique wedding adventures of any world vacation spot.
Here’s 5 great reasons why The Bahamas might be the place of choice for your Destination Wedding:
1. The Experiences
On one of the Bahamas 29 islands, 661 cays, or even on one of 2,387 rocks, getting married on this paradise island nation in the Caribbean is an adventure all its own.
In the Bahamas one can get married on the beach, alongside an inland deep blue sea, near the “lost city of Atlantis,” or in a castle on the highest point of the islands. Wedding planners can also add dolphins or birds of paradise to a ceremony. Junkanoo dancers are available for nuptials, or and so is in the Versailes Gardens, a great royal back crop to any stately wedding.
2. The Islands and Beaches
Pick an island, any island, just for the experience. The Exumas offer foot print free beaches. Long Island has breathtaking cliffs and coral reefs, and Nassau and Paradise Island is a tropical utopia with the perfect mix of big city and native tropical features. Go to Inagua for the exotic birds, or have your wedding party swim ashore on The Berry Islands. You may find the perfect setting for a wedding on each island.
The Bahamas boasts the 10 best beaches in the Caribbean, some are alive with beach sports like volleyball, and soccer, some are exclusively serviced by resorts with servicers to attend their guests. Some are family friendly, and perfect to house guests that will come to witness nuptials. And some are secluded, and reserved for single sets of footprints and very private beachcombing, picnics, and sunset watching.
3. The Romance
The Bahamas host some of the most romantic wedding sites in the world; with breathtaking panoramic views, soft sandy white and pink beaches, and slow dancing at sunset, just for two. Every resort boasts memory making getaway packages that rival their competition. The easy part is just flowing with the paradise promised by the wedding arranger, the hardest part is choosing which package is best for your special day. But the abundance only means there has to be one specially packaged just for you.
No place to stay or hold a wedding is a bad place, especially in The Bahamas, where the people pride themselves on delivering the best possible experiences for their guests. From large resorts like Sandals, and Atlantis, to smaller venues with names like Rock House and Augusta Bay Bahamas, there’s a place, with an affordable budget for every couple.
5. The Adventure
For the bride and groom, and their guests, before or after the wedding The Bahamas offer biking and shopping, beach bonfires, booze and dinner cruises, dolphin encounters, and glass bottom boat adventures. For the more courageous there is parasailing and snorkeling tours.
The people of the Bahamas love to celebrate, and they love to bring their guests in to their celebration.
In January the people of Bimini begin the New Year in a spectacular native street festival with a Junkanoo parade. In July there are yacht regattas in Rolleville on the Exumas, and other islands, where the onshore festivals include beauty pageants, greasy pole climbing, and games. In August the people on Cat Island celebrate Emancipation Day with live entrainment, cultural activities, and games. In October there is the “Discovery Day Homecoming Festival,” where San Salvadorians worldwide are invited to come “home” and celebrating the landing of Christopher Columbus. Christmas, with tree lighting ceremonies, is also celebrated on most islands.
A wedding in The Bahamas is a promise of fun, sun, and adventure, and once in a lifetime memories few other places on earth can offer. Contact us to learn about this and many more beautiful places for your perfect wedding!
