Planning a Destination wedding in The Bahamas, then here are 4 insider tips from senior wedding planner at Bahamas Destination Wedding, Glenn Ferguson to help plan a wedding that is not only memorable and fun for guest but also, affordable and budget friendly.

Choose Island

Ferguson starts by saying that “While most persons are familiar with Nassau and Paradise Island which are located on the island of New Providence, there are more than 700 islands and cays in the Bahamas with more than 5,000 pristine powdery white sand beaches, that’s more than all the other Caribbean Islands combined. Therefore, consider using one of the many Family of Islands like Andros, Abaco, Cat island, Eleuthera and Harbour Island, and Exuma, which while having the warmth and friendly people that The Bahamas is know for, also, have their own unique characteristics and ambiance, making them ideal for a destination wedding.”

Spread the word

Extend the courtesy of letting family and friends know the date for the destination wedding as soon as it is set. So that they will have the time needed to make their attendance at the wedding possible. And while a passport is not needed to travel to the Bahamas, a passport is needed to reenter the United State after the wedding is over. So they may need to get a passport if they do not already have one or renew any expired ones. And this can take some time up to six months.

Set Budget
