Choosing a tropical destination wedding is a cure-all for about 100 common gripes couples have when planning their weddings. There’s no worrying about bad blood by choosing to have your wedding closer to your hometown or your FI’s. You KNOW your guests are going to have a blast on the beach (mini-vacay!). And perhaps best of all, you’re immediately on your honeymoon the minute the wedding’s over.
Gorgeous destination wedding: check.
Choosing a location may be a different story, and a little bit of a hassle if you aren’t equipped with the right information. And if you’re type-A (holla!), the idea of planning from afar can be a little nerve-racking if you’re not equipped with the right tools and information. That’s why Islands of the Bahamas is the perfect destination wedding or honeymoon locale.
Let us count the ways…
1. It’s uber convenient.
Just an hour flight from Miami, the Bahamas is an exotic tropical getaway right in our own backyard. You can get there via major airlines and cruise lines. Cruising in and/or out of your wedding? Sounds like a dream.
2. There are hundreds of beautiful beaches to choose from.
Yep, HUNDREDS. If you’re looking for your own slice of beautiful white (or pink!) beach, this is the spot. Add in the sapphire-blue skies and turquoise water, and you have the dream backdrop for your perfect day. With more than 700 cays, reefs, beaches, parks, botanical gardens, churches, and other locations, there are endless ways to declare your love for one another when planning a destination wedding in the Bahamas. Glorious sunsets, rolling hillsides, breathtaking landscapes, and warm, tropical weather await!
2. There’s a customized wedding package for every taste and budget.
No matter whether the size of your wedding is big or small, many hotels on the islands offer customized wedding packages to suit every taste and budget, so you can be sure your experience will be unique and memorable.
3. Getting married in the Bahamas is hassle free.
Couples only need to reside in the Bahamas for one day before getting a marriage license, making next-day weddings a reality (and minimizing long-distance planning hurdles).
4. Experience over-the-top world class hospitality.
Residents of the Bahamas are notorious for their warm and welcoming personalities. This carries through to everyone who will help you plan your wedding: from the hotel concierge to experienced wedding planners available to you there.
5. There’s plenty of alone time to be had before and after the wedding.
One of the best parts of destination weddings for couples is that you can have all the details taken care of for you prior to your arrival, which means that you’ll have time to sneak away with your bride- or groom-to-be for a few relaxing, romantic dinners. Fresh seafood combined with reggae, soca, calypso, or even a live steel band will leave you stress free before and after W-Day.
