What Time of Year is the Best for a Bahamas Wedding?


The Bahamas is open year round as a destination wedding location.  Undoubtedly, there are more popular times of year than others to come here and tie the knot.  The Bahamas is a Caribbean nation that is located just off the coast of Florida.  The Bahamas isn’t as far South as the hotter Central and Southern American climates.   Sunny, and marked by infectious aqua blue water, the Bahamas carries its charm throughout the year.

October-November – Quiet Time to Get Married in the Bahamas

If you’re someone who wants a more discreet experience during a quieter time of year in the Bahamas, then consider October to November as the best time to go to the Bahamas.  Hurricane season wraps up at the end of September.  Fewer people travel to the Bahamas to vacation from August to October.  However, by November through the holidays, it will be busy again. This is a fun family or couples getaway time of the year.  As such, October and November are also popular times to plan a Bahamas wedding.  Not considered the Bahamas peak time, you can create a quieter ceremony with accompanying activities if that is more your style.

Of course, any time of the year is a good time for a Bahamas wedding.  However, since the islands are on the same latitude line as South Florida, there is potential for temperature drops during December to March.  But, you needn’t worry about any of that.  Here at Chic Bahamas Weddings, it’s our job to advise you on the perfect time to have that destination wedding.  And, we advise you on how it can bring your wedding design and style to life.

Feel free to give us a call to kick-start the process.
