Destination Wedding Planner

It can certainly be nerve-wracking and stressful planning a destination wedding from afar. The day you say “I do” to the love of your life happens once. And you’re investing a lot of time, money, and heart into this luxury experience. But you don’t have to worry. Not when you have a luxury destination wedding planner whose home is the Bahamas, like Marva Munroe.

Originally from Nassau, Bahamas, Marva currently lives with her husband and two kids on Grand Bahama Island, with a fantastic view of the canal from her kitchen.

Marva has been in the business of destination wedding planning for decades, and is the owner and lead planner of Chic Bahamas Weddings. A typical day for Marva starts with an easy-paced morning. After a cup of coffee and devotions, she goes for a walk or jog, followed by a workout session with her personal trainer. Then, she heads to the office to coordinate with top vendors to help make her bride’s dream wedding come true.

At the end of the day, she has dinner with her family, chats about the day’s events, and ‘Netflix and Chill’ if possible. To unwind in her spare time, Marva takes a beach walk to enjoy the relaxing scenery or gardens. She finds that gardening helps keep the creative juice flowing. She also loves classical jazz music, and whenever traveling, always try to include a live jazz show or concert. 

First Time Bahamas Travelers Recommendation

From experience, Marva has a couple of places to eat, drink, and shop that she recommends to travelers visiting the Bahamas for the first time. If you’re visiting Exuma, she recommends staying at Grand Isle Resort and Spa.  The dining at 23 North is fantastic.  The cuisine is superb, and the views are stunning.  Outside the hotel, her favorite place to dine is Blu Experience – Chef Ty’s cuisine is divine, Asian-inspired.

As for Eleuthera, she recommends The Cove Eleuthera as the perfect place to stay and dine. Accommodations, especially the beachfront suites and villas, are designed island-style and stunning. In Harbour Island, she recommends dining at Sip Sip for lunch and The Dunmore for dinner.  The Vegan shop is also superb for a quick healthy lunch, while for a quick coffee and healthy muffin to get the day going, the Coffee Roasters is terrific.  Transporting around town in a golf cart while shopping in small boutiques is also fun.  Luxury destination wedding planning choices on Eleuthera and Harbour Island are boutique.

Marva’s Tip For Couples Planning A Bahamas Destination Wedding

“Do you want the hustle of a city or an off the beaten path Out Island experience? Decide what’s most important and meaningful to you and your guests, and build your choice of island and venue around this objective.  And, as it’s a destination wedding, and planning from afar is involved, I strongly suggest finding a destination wedding planner to navigate the waters and ensure that your celebration is stellar.”
