About Marva Munroe
As the founder and director of Chic Bahamas Weddings and Events, I consider it my privilege to be your personal wedding planner, here to carry out every detail of your dream island wedding.
I’ve been a luxury Caribbean wedding planning expert for many years, and have coordinated and produced island-wide international events for the Grand Bahamas Island Tourism Board, as well as wedding planning-in-residence services at Pelican Bay on Grand Bahama Island. I also hold the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism Cacique Award. My company, Chic Bahamas Weddings and Events, is a multi-year winner of WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award, is a “Best of Weddings” pick by The Knot, and a WeddingLovely Certified Lovely Vendor, among other accolades. I’m a former member of the Chaines de Rotisseurs (the French food and wine society) and Baille, a world traveler, and am enamored of Michelin-rated restaurants and five-star hotel accommodations. My love of luxury translates into a love of recreating these extraordinary experiences for my clients.
In addition to being a wedding and lifestyle expert, I also possess well over a decade of firsthand experience with the very best vendors and products throughout the Bahamas. I’m proud to have partnered with many of the area’s premier event professionals to ensure that every part of your event, from the food to the photography to the entertainment, is exquisite. I’m also especially knowledgeable about wedding requirements here in the Bahamas, and am able to anticipate and creatively address any challenges in creating your one-of-a-kind event here in the islands. (Ask me about the time I was able to secure last-minute Immigration permits for a groom’s rock band to play at the wedding!) Finally, my hotel background and familiarity with Bahamian hospitality contracts ensure your guests’ ability to access affordable group room blocks and attend your wedding with ease.
Planning such an important milestone event from a distance can be stressful, which is why my clients value my calm spirit and my impeccable attention to detail. I’m accessible during “business hours” and beyond, and I always welcome the opportunity to discuss your ideas. Communication is so important to me, as is earning your trust and executing your unique vision. Because I pride myself on creating an extraordinary custom celebration for each couple, I also craft a wedding experience unique to their needs, rather than offering standardized packages. This is the bespoke element of my services.
Of course, my passion for weddings isn’t limited to my current clientele, as wonderful as they are. I’m highly involved in the luxury wedding industry, and in an effort to continuously refine my services, I dedicate time each year to identifying the most current trends and innovations. I also invest in ongoing education and inspiration under event experts and designers such as Colin Cowie, Mindy Weiss, Sylvia Weinstock, Todd Fiscus, Bryan Rafinelli and more.
I love what I do, I love the couples I work with, and I feel fortunate to serve such a vital role in their most important celebrations. I would be honored to be part of yours. Please contact me to inquire about your own bespoke Bahamas wedding!
