In 2017, beachy bohemian wedding dresses will be highly sought after, with modern details including, crop top ensembles and dresses with texture. You can also expect to see some deviance from the traditional white dress, as brides opt for dress in hues of blush and pale blue.

The Décor

Get Married Bahamas: Spring 2017


In contrast to wedding fashions for 2016, florals are taking a decidedly minimalist tone with simple arrangements that feature lots of greenery. Florals will be arranged more like table centrepieces with bouquets that overflow with flowers in a few simple colours.

However, the tropical trend will again make an appearance in the wedding menu with Latin-inspired cuisines and tropical cocktails to complete the essentials for a chic 2017 wedding reception.

Our friends at The Baha Mar Foundation have an easy way to support those in Grand Bahama and The Abacos by providing food, shelter and medicine. Please follow the link in our bio to donate to this worthy cause. 100% of the proceeds donated will go directly to helping those in need.
