Imagine your ceremony on the beach, at the water’s edge, just as the sun starts to set. Or maybe you prefer a gazebo in a tropical garden, surrounded by lush and exotic plants. Does this sound like a typical wedding? Tradition is fine, but consider the unique memories you will make for you and your guests. There may be a limited number of local areas for your ceremony. Why not break the mold and express your personal style? A Bahamas destination wedding will be special and set your ceremony apart. Chic Bahamas Weddings can make your vision a reality and give you and your guests a truly unique experience with memories that last a lifetime.

More Options for Dresses

Simply because of the location, traditional wedding dresses do not always fit a beach wedding. You will have the freedom to choose a dress that fits your style and perhaps avoid buying an expensive dress you will only wear once. Your dress will still be special, but you decide what you want to wear. Do you want a traditional wedding gown? Do you want something more practical that you can wear again? The choice is all yours. There is also more flexibility for the groom. If a traditional tuxedo isn’t his style, a destination wedding gives him many more options when choosing what to wear. There are many stylish and classy options for both the bride and groom.

Traditional weddings pack a lot into a small span of time. Between the ceremony and reception, the bride and groom only have a few hours to visit with their guests, and usually, that’s only a quick “hello” and “thanks for coming.” By the end of the day, the newlyweds are exhausted. A destination wedding in the Bahamas gives you and your guests time to relax and socialize without the pressure of time constraints. Destination weddings generally span three days, leaving plenty of time to sleep, swim, and soak the sun. Enjoy quality time with your loved ones without the stress of a traditional wedding in a beautiful, relaxing setting. You will avoid being the frazzled bride and can relax and enjoy your guests.

Limit the Guest List

Holding your wedding in your hometown usually means you have a huge guest list. Most couples feel obligated to invite their co-workers, second cousins, and other distant relatives. Because destination weddings require those invited to travel, the guest list will automatically be limited. You can share your ceremony with your closest family and friends, eliminating the need to invite your aunt’s cousin’s boyfriend. If you want to celebrate with a larger group, have a party when you return and include your co-workers, friends, and relatives you were unable to invite to the ceremony.

Save Money

It may seem contrary, but a destination wedding in the Bahamas can actually save money. Because of the limited guest list, you will not need to spend money feeding and entertaining 200 people. You can save money on your dress since the large, traditional wedding gown is not necessary. Many resorts and airlines offer discounts for groups traveling together. Chic Bahamas Weddings can help you make travel easier for your guests.

Since it is always beautiful in the Bahamas, you can be flexible with the date for your celebration. Many resorts offer discounts during the off-peak season, and having your ceremony mid-week can also be cheaper. With the beautiful beach or lush jungle as your backdrop, you can save money on décor. Who needs elaborate flower arrangements or other trimmings when you have white sands, blue waters, and sunny skies for your setting?

Start the Honeymoon Early

Spend your honeymoon at the same place you had your ceremony with no need to pack up and travel; you can continue relaxing in the Bahamas. Extend your stay and seamlessly go from wedding party to honeymooning couple. After your guests depart, you can stay and relax on the beach and enjoy all the beauty and romance the Bahamas have to offer!
