Bahamas Beach Wedding Planning Tips

Consider The Beach Environment

When planning a Bahamas beach wedding, many factors come into play:

  • The time of day
  • Tide conditions – whether it’s high or low tide so as to avoid tide washing away set-up
  • The expanse of beach – we love a wide expanse of flat sand/beach
  • Hard as opposed to soft sand
  • Calm sand
  • Lighting
  • Non-windy conditions

Specifically, the Chic Bahamas Weddings team is adept at handling all of the above and more. We’re well prepared for your beach wedding. We ensure that the ceremony arch is set-up in firm sand and well beyond the high watermark to prevent water from washing it away. These and many other precautions are taken in order to produce a safe and happy event.

A Favorite Bahamas Beach Wedding Location – Exuma

Great Exuma beach weddings are stunning.  Picture glistening, gin clear turquoise waters with powdery white sand beaches, secluded, you and your guests as you say “I Do” just before sunset.  Exuma offers this and more. Turquoise Cay Boutique Hotel is the ideal spot to exchange your vows in a private, secluded setting on the hotel’s beach or dock then move to The Deck for scrumptious passed hors d’oeuvres, custom gourmet three, four or five course dinner, dancing under the stars.
