  • You’ll Save on Decor

Who doesn’t like saving?

There is the fact that when the venue for your wedding is a beach, you do not typically have to do too much by way of décor. You already have a beautiful water backdrop and an instant romantic atmosphere right there! Your wedding fashion will also cost less because, at beach weddings, the theme is usually casual. You won’t have to go for an outrageously costly wedding dress.

  • The Weather

Climate is one of the biggest appeals for weddings in the Bahamas. Imagine yourself saying “I do” with your feet in the sand as the tropical ocean breeze surrounds you and your guests. This would be even better if it is winter back home. Your guests will undoubtedly be grateful to you for the lovely days in the sun. Just remember that you still have to keep the weather in mind just like you have to do for all outdoor weddings. 

  • Your Honeymoon

One advantage of having a beach wedding in the Bahamas is that it could double as your honeymoon. You can start your dream vacation right after your ceremony and have the time of your lives. The romantic island vibe and the atmosphere which is away from home can create the perfect canvass for you to begin your marital bliss. If you’re worried about lingering guests, you can book a different island or hotel for your honeymoon.

One thing we can assure you about your Bahamas beach wedding is that it will be memorable. Especially if you let us at Chic Bahamas Weddings & Events plan it. The Bahamas offers you a unique experience, and you’ll have a wedding that everyone will be talking about for years to come.

  • Less Stress

One thing about a destination wedding that many people love is that it is less stressful to plan. You can have peace of mind and enjoy your engagement while your Bahamas wedding planner (Hopefully us), does your wedding planning for you. All you have to do is get on a jet and say your vows to the sound of the waves when you arrive. This is undoubtedly a welcome deviation from all the heavy lifting you’ll have to do if you decide to have and plan a traditional wedding at home.

So, are you ready for your Bahamas beach wedding? We’re excited and more than willing too. The Bahamas has something to offer every couple, and you’ll have a good time here. You can follow the following simple steps to get started on your planning.

  • Choose an Island

There are 700 of them, so this one can be a little tasking, but not to worry; we’ve got you covered. Nassau & Paradise Island, the capital, is often an excellent option for couples hosting a large wedding. It’s easy to get into, and you’ll love the historical landmarks and the vibrant nightlife.

Exuma has a lovely mix of national parks and the small-town charm. It’s just over an hour from Miami, and the beautiful Exuma is one of its attractions. Many couples have an on-site wedding there.

If you’re looking for a more private and intimate vibe, you should probably try the Out Islands. Also known as the Family Islands, it offers you an oasis that is perfect for your total relaxation and privacy. There are also many natural wonders to intrigue you and your guests.

  • Pick a date

In the Bahamas, weddings can take place from sunrise to sunset every day of the week. Most couples plan their ceremony for two days or more after they’ve arrived. This gives them enough time to get their wedding license. For your beach wedding, you should also pay attention to the weather. The rainy season starts in the middle of May and lasts until October end.

  • Apply for Your Marriage License

Once you’ve been in the Bahamas for 24 hours, you can apply for a marriage license. It takes just two business days to get to you. If you get a professional wedding planner like us, we’ll help you figure out most of the paperwork, so you don’t get any headache. You’ll have to show evidence of your arrival date in the Bahamas, present two valid passports, your birth certificate, and photo identification. See, not stressful at all.

  • Have Your Wedding

It’s the only thing left. A fun time for you, your partner, and your loved ones in a destination that makes your dreams come true. Chic Bahamas Wedding Planning & Events would have had everything else ready for you, and you get right on with having your memorable wedding. You can also honeymoon in the Bahamas.
