With the world going back to a semblance of normal, everyone who rescheduled their wedding, engagement, or renewal of vows will want to make this ceremony an even more memorable one.
The Islands of The Bahamas is an adventurous and idyllic location that offers hip alternatives to a traditional wedding for your clients.
The Bahamas has over 700 unique, picturesque islands and cays to choose from and you can rework the celebrations to make them both safe and sentimental for your clients.
One of the most common ways to get married in The Bahamas would be on a beach, and there are plenty to choose from.
Here are some unique and exclusive options:
Nassau’s Botanical Gardens:
The Botanical Gardens of Nassau provides a tranquil and serene retreat. It features 18 acres of tropical flora covering over 600 species, including the Bahamas national flower, the Yellow Elder. Your clients can get married here in the warm fragrant air, amid an array of blooming tropical flowers. With the sound of waves crashing against the shore, this beautiful location is the perfect setting for couples to say their vows.
Tie the knot underwater:
Several dive companies in The Bahamas specialize in underwater weddings where couples write “I Do” on a waterproof slate and take it home as a souvenir. What truly makes this entire affair unique is that dolphins can be a part of the wedding as the ring bearer. Check out Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas, the most famous wedding officiant in The Bahamas, to help you set this up.
Add in some local flavour:
The Bahamas offers Junkanoo – a parade of music and dance popular in the Caribbean, which now has become a wedding theme. Arrange for a Junkanoo band to play a lively percussive style of music famous in the Caribbean. A Junkanoo rush-out, a parade in which mask-wearing musicians play cowbells, drums, and whistles, may be added. Most of the resorts can help get Junkanoo bands on board; however, Atlantis Resort also organizes Junkanoo-themed dinners.
At Landfall Park in San Salvador, the steps of Christopher Columbus can be traced. It is one of the smallest inhabited islands in The Bahamas and has sparkling inland lakes, various historical monuments, and miles of secluded beaches. There’s an option of a tropical service and a stylish ceremony at a resort. Hotels offer all-inclusive wedding-special packages that can be tailored to your client's specific needs.
Private island ceremony
In a remote and isolated location, surrounded by green scenery, where nature would be your primary guest for the wedding, couples may hold a small and sentimental ceremony in Inagua. This island is pristine, mostly uninhabited and a perfect spot for the wedding couple and their guests to celebrate. There are many intimate small inns with cottages overlooking the beach. The properties here offer all of the usual amenities and services and will assist you with your client's wedding arrangements. For a more conventional wedding, select one of the churches dating back to the 1800s.
