Secure a Professional

Reduce the inevitable difficulties that may occur in the planning phase of any wedding by arranging the intricate details for the wedding from long distance. The task can be made simpler by a wedding planner's expertise and advice. It is recommended to search for a professional approved by the Official Office of Tourism in the Bahamas.

Even with weddings that are secured directly through a resort, a couple will be assigned a personal wedding consultant to oversee the affair.

All that needs to be done is to arrive in the Bahamas on time.

Set your Budget

Add in some innovated ideas when planning the wedding, as it may cost significantly less than previously imagined. Your consultant will assure you that it is cost-efficient to have your destination wedding in the Bahamas than elsewhere. Options may be available within your allotted budget. Determine how much you wish to spend in total. Alongside the fees for the wedding package, personal expenditures must be considered. Airfare, transportation to and from your home, wedding attire, licensing fees and the entire wedding party are all elements that could be problematic.

Decide on the Type of Venue

Plan a traditional or contemporary destination wedding and reception in the Bahamas. Customize your wedding tailored to your requirements. Whether one wishes for a private affair or have a guest list adding to more than 300, new and creative ideas are never wrong and can be adapted and assembled in whatever way is suitable.

A Bahamas destination wedding becomes a truly unforgettable experience for everyone present.


Feature your wedding among the flora archipelago of in any one of 37 inhabited islands of the Bahamas.

Visualize your reception, dining alfresco at sunset on the beach with tranquil water and swaying palms as your backdrop. Or perhaps you would prefer your wedding party lined up at the entranceway of a grand villa, surrounded by flowering gardens.

Grace and allurement can be had with an all-inclusive luxury resort set amidst the tropical ambience that only the Bahamas provides.

Planning is essential with the growing trend of destination weddings on the Bahamas. Secure your travel and wedding arrangements six to ten months out.


Legal issues for your tropical wedding in the Bahamas require all those to be present beforehand.

Apply for a license at least 24 hours after your arrival. Once the approved permit is issued, you can be legally married.

If one is travelling by ship, they must acquire a confirmation from the ship's purser. Before any work can be undertaken, guests must confirm that they have remained in Bahamian waters for at least twenty-four hours. The license is issued only from Mondays to Fridays during standard working hours. The Registrar General in Nassau is the office that authorizes approved grants.

For the outer islands, a marriage license can be obtained at the Administrator's Office on that island.
