Making Magical Destination Weddings a Reality: Meet Anne Marie Williams

Hosting a destination wedding in the Bahamas might create a little anxiety because you don’t exactly know whether your dream day will match your vision until the day it happens.

We get it. It’s the most important day of your life. That’s why you shouldn’t risk attempting to do it alone or with someone that’s been assigned the task/position but has little experience and isn’t absolutely passionate about event planning.

Anne Marie Williams, owner of Weddings in the Bahamas, is a professional wedding planner (PWP™) and member of the Association of Bridal Consultants. She has over 25-years of experience in event planning, the last 20 as a destination wedding planner based on the island of New Providence in Nassau, Bahamas.

Anne Marie has received the “Couples’ Choice” Award by Wedding Wire since 2015. She has a 5.0 review rating on Wedding Wire (the highest) in the following categories:

  • Quality of service
  • Average response time

Anne Marie is always one step ahead to make sure your day goes as planned. She can anticipate what will happen next because she’s seen it happen a thousand times and knows how to quietly conduct the entire day with kindness and grace. She’s always ready with a safety pin and can pivot to react thoughtfully when a big decision needs to be made without delay.

Her wedding planning business is her life’s passion, and it shows.

Here’s what recent brides said about working with Anne Marie:

Sara, June 2022 bride: I always knew I wanted a destination wedding but didn’t know where…I didn’t know how to go about it, so I reserved a wedding date at Sandals Royal Bahamian and Atlantis. After a few interactions with the Sandals and Atlantis wedding planner, it didn’t feel right. I came across Weddings in the Bahamas, and the first thing that grabbed my attention was the packages and personal wedding planner services. I had the pleasure to speak with the Queen of wedding planning, Anne Marie Williams. We spoke for a long time and suddenly I felt that my wedding will be in great hands…Anne Marie was personable , respectful, and a very classy lady. She is DETAILED oriented and did not miss a thing.

Kelsie, May 2022 bride: Everyone NEEDS Anne Marie in their life! We planned our wedding to happen in Nassau during one of our stops on our cruise. Even with the cruise line changing our date and times last minute, Anne Marie was able to create the wedding of our dreams! She is very responsive, creative, and hard working. Our original venue abruptly closed 3 months before our wedding and Anne Marie was quickly able to find us a new venue that was incredible. If that wasn’t enough, hurricane rain caused the wedding to be moved inside. Anne Marie knew that our vision was to be married on the beach so as soon as the rain stopped, she hustled to move everything back outside for us in the heat and humidity, 15 minutes before our ceremony began! To say she went above and beyond to create our dream wedding is an understatement. Our perfect wedding could not have happened without Anne Marie! She is a miracle worker!

Yolanda, December 2021 bride: Anne Marie listened to our theme/vision and delivered on point! Anne Marie made our destination wedding an enjoyable experience from the start. I let her know from the beginning that my husband and I lacked the knowledge of event planning (let alone, wedding planning), so she took it over from there – whether it was coordinating directly with our VRBO host (wedding location), soliciting vendors/negotiating vendor pricing, following up on a weekly basis, coordinating with chef, decor vendor and VRBO weeks prior to the wedding to make sure the layout was understood by everyone, updated us on current COVID and travel requirements, and so much more. Anne Marie was a Godsend! Our destination wedding would never have turned out like it did without her assistance. It was an absolute pleasure working with her!!
