When people think of ideal wedding venues, sunny Bahamas is always high up on the list. With miles of white sand, clear blue waters, lush greenery and lots of resorts and hotels to choose from, it is no wonder they have some of the most popular destination wedding packages.
There are lots of plans offered, the most elaborate being destination wedding packages all inclusive. Shop around for the best deals that fit both your budget and your concept of a dream wedding. The following are three venue suggestions:
- Abaco Beach Resort, Bahamas
If you want seclusion and privacy, stunning Tropical Island setting, and great wedding venue plans, then you should consider Abaco Beach Resort in the Bahamas. You’ll have a choice of 6 ceremony venues in their 40 acres of property: by the pool, air conditioned hall overlooking the marina, garden pool, lawn, garden gazebo, and private beach & island. Wedding packages start at $999 and service for just the couple and two other people up to a service with lots more options and up to 50 guests. The basic package includes wedding planner, officiant, marriage certificates and assistance with the registration office, beach side palm frond wedding arch, and a one night stay for the newlyweds. Couples are encouraged to coordinate with the staff to customize their marriage plans to match their requirements. There are also packages for renewal of vows.
- Sandals Emerald Bay
The easiest way to describe the Sandals Emerald Bay is 500 acres of tropical luxury in the idyllic waters of the Exumas; that the hotel offers great wedding venue packages is merely icing on the cake. And their destination matrimonial plans leave nothing to be desired. From having your own wedding planner taking care of details to the wide choice of luxurious venues, and the pampering the bride and groom receive from the spa, everything is aimed at making weddings perfect. The basic wedding plans currently costs just $500, but is offered free if the pair stay for a minimum of three nights at any room. From there plans grow in complexity (and price) to just less than $3000; adding options, more guests and longer stays further increase the final bill; but that is a small price to pay for having your dream wedding come true.
- Pelican Bay Hotel
The Pelican Bay Hotel has everything the Bahamas is famous for: great tropical sunsets, clear blue waters and miles of powder soft sand. Add luxurious rooms combined with elegant wedding venues, and it is no wonder they have some of the more popular wedding venue plans. You can have your wedding indoors, in the garden or by the sea; your choice. There are three packages on offer, two of them for weddings and one for renewal of marriage vows. All plans include the help of wedding planners, transport around the island, flowers for the couple, wine, and cake. A Bahamian-themed wedding is an option and customization is highly recommended.
One thing only you can ensure is the availability of all required documentation. Visit the website of the Caribbean Wedding Association or the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism for more information. If you take the time to learn the requirements well, the destination wedding plan you choose should work perfectly.
