WEDDING DAY IN THE BAHAMAS
UNFORGETTABLY ROMANTIC CARIBBEAN WEDDINGS
DESTINATION, The BAHAMAS ISLANDS: A short plane transfer from Miami brings you to this 700 island-paradise, where white sand beaches, warm waters, and island hopping make for a memorable wedding or honeymoon.
If you are looking for a destination wedding, look no further than the Bahamas. Available all-inclusive wedding packages allow you to wed and honeymoon in paradise. Destination weddings often cost less than traditional ones, allowing you to have the wedding you always dreamed of.
Though the Bahamas share warm, clear waters, diverse wildlife and friendly locals, the islands vary substantially, even from a 20 minute sea plane from one destination to the next. That’s part of the adventure when searching for the perfect island. You’re almost guaranteed to find one that captures your imagination—whether you’re planning a 150-person wedding extravaganza or an intimate vow renewal far removed from the world. An Exuma wedding on pink sand beaches is perfect for a secluded getaway to reconnect. You might try a Grand Bahamas wedding for a family-friendly venue, and for a lively beach escape try our weddings in Nassau package. Better yet (since no one said you have to choose), island-hop and see why it is so difficult to pick a favorite.
Grand Bahama Island offers plenty of amenities while keeping its charm as a quaint Caribbean town. Home to one of the world’s largest underwater cave systems, three national parks and aviary sanctuaries, there’s plenty of nature to explore both on and off land. When you’re not busy hanging at the beach, golfing, and shopping, be sure to fill up at one of the local fish fries.
Just north of Nassau lies Paradise Island, which is known for its white, sandy shorelines that melt into the clear waters. The island boasts numerous luxury hotels and resorts, with accommodations ranging from golf courses to tropical aquariums and hopping nightlife. If you are looking for seclusion, try Adelaid or Lyford Cay, where you and your other half will likely be the only beach-goers around. Swimming with Bottlenose dolphins is also a popular island activity at Blue Lagoon Island, and Sandy Toes beach is a private enclave to hole up in a hammock and unwind.
The Bahamian capital city is known for its vivid nightlife and patchwork of colonial and modern architecture. Today, stunning Victorian mansions, cathedrals and ancient forts offer numerous locations to marry at or visit while honeymooning. Like other Bahamian islands, Nassau is a natural destination for outdoor activities and water-sports, whether you care to swim with dolphins, jet-ski or just hang at the beach. There are also plenty of museums and cultural attractions to check out—like Queen’s Staircase, which was carved out of solid limestone in the late 18th century.
The Exumas is a 120-mile-long island chain divided into three major areas- Great Exuma, Little Exuma, and the Exuma Cays. Exuma has bright, turquoise waters perfect for spotting starfish and conch shell diving. Though not native to the water, you may even catch a “domesticated” pig swimming out near your boat on Major’s Spot Cay, where these gentle giants expect to be fed by friendly visitors. The laid-back capital of George Town is also a must-see, with great restaurants and shopping.
Wherever you end up in The Bahamas, there are abundant outdoor adventures to keep you busy. Most islands have walking tours to guide you through their cultural treasures—be it ancient ruins or famous markets. On the water, you can chose between remote bone-fishing expeditions, snorkeling, surfing, and (of course) great beaches to hang at. If you’re looking for luxury, plenty of islands cater to an elite crowd, with rejuvenating spa treatments, and great restaurants and shops.
Come experience the very pinnacle of luxury all-inclusive excellence.
