Dreaming of a Bahamas destination wedding? We’re breaking down the best resorts for a destination wedding on these beloved islands. Here you’ll find some of the world’s most gorgeous beaches, plus a luxurious but laid-back vibe that is perfect for a wedding day.
Once you decide to throw a Bahamas destination wedding, you have many more choices to make. Most importantly, choosing a location. You’ll find a wide variety of properties on the Bahamas, from intimate boutique-style hotels to party-focused resorts. Besides size, there are several other factors to consider when choosing a resort. You’ll want to be sure the resort can accommodate your full guest list. In addition, keep in mind that some resorts cater to smaller wedding parties, and others accommodate and actively prefer larger groups.
Another thing to consider is whether you want an adults-only destination wedding or a family-friendly resort. Some resorts offer a bit of a hybrid between the two. For instance, some family-friendly properties have adults-only areas and/or kids programs.
