Avoid the fuss and requirements of the Bahamian marriage application and licensing process with a symbolic ceremony (aka commitment wedding ceremony). A symbolic ceremony is just as special as a traditional wedding ceremony—it just removes the legal steps because you do them beforehand at your hometown clerk of the court’s office.
Symbolic wedding ceremonies in the Bahamas are very romantic because you, your spouse and guests can focus on the sincerity of the nuptials and significance of the special moment. It also means you can host your Wedding in the Bahamas anywhere, anytime, and the officiant doesn’t have to be licensed.
Many couples like the idea of a symbolic ceremony versus a traditional wedding ceremony because it removes all the unromantic, technical parts of the marriage like setting an appointment to fill out forms, pay fees, and take vows from a judge or licensed clerk who also must sign and file the certificate to make the union legal.
When the licensing requirements are completed ahead of the destination symbolic ceremony in the Bahamas, you have the freedom to plan a very unique and expressive celebration. It also gives you more control over how you wish to honor your cultural traditions or religious beliefs.
