Pet-friendly Weddings in the Bahamas

Nelly and Marcus are a cute couple from Boynton Beach, Florida that wanted a destination wedding in the Bahamas with their canine companion, Bianco.

Weddings in the Bahamas made their dreams come true.

As a Functional Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner, Nelly has a deep understanding of what works best to reduce stress in life. As she began to make plans for her wedding, she knew having Bianco with her might alleviate some wedding-day anxieties and be a great comfort to the guests.

Weddings in the Bahamas has helped many couples bring pets to the island, so the process was not unfamiliar. With our guidance, Nelly and Marcus applied for the import permit with the Ministry of Agriculture and Bianco was admitted as a special wedding guest.

The filing, which must be done in writing, requires a $10 application processing fee, proof of vaccination, and a veterinarian’s health certificate.

Many resorts in the Bahamas are pet-friendly and Weddings in the Bahamas is familiar with all of them so we can help you chose one that’s right for you and your furry companion.

As your wedding partner of choice, Weddings in the Bahamas helps you stay on top of wedding plan deadlines, so your special day includes every guest on your list. This includes negotiating special rates and helping you set reservations and make arrangements for hotels, travel, marriage licenses, and special permits. Beyond that, we also make sure you have appointments set for hair, makeup, activities, and transportation. Behind the scenes, we also keep you informed of costs and deposit deadlines for flowers, music, venues, food and a minister.

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
  • Value
  • Professionalism
  • Flexibility

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!!

Bahama Wedding Entertainment Options

Your wedding day is a great opportunity to rejoice in joy with friends and family. Weddings in the Bahamas can help you set the stage with entertainment options that fit your style and get your guests into celebration mode. Hiring entertainment for your wedding in the Bahamas begins with a look at your theme and guest list. Small weddings might not need a large steel drum band, and large weddings may need more than just a piano player. Luckily, Weddings in the Bahamas’ licensed wedding planner Anne Marie Williams has a long list of entertainment providers that won’t disappoint. Plus, Ann Marie has already vetted each, so you don’t have to worry about their talent quality, reliability, and professionalism.

Turn Up the Music

The breadth of musical talent in the Bahamas is impressive. From trained soloists to full orchestras and choirs, your options are nearly unlimited. During your wedding ceremony you might prefer a string quartet, pianist, acoustic guitarist or harpist. Then during the reception, you might enjoy a live rock or country band that knows all your favorite cover songs. DJs, rappers and hip hop artists are also plentiful in the Bahamas. As are R&B, Calypso or Latin bands and musicians that are familiar with other cultural music tastes like Bollywood. We even know a good Elvis impersonator…so just ask and we can find the perfect musical performer for you.

Let Us Entertain You

Because you chose to have a destination wedding in the Bahamas means you probably will be spending several days on the island. Weddings in the Bahamas can help you create unique events around your wedding day for your guests like a Bahamian Junkanoo. During a Junkanoo, costumed dancers and musicians entertain with fire dances, guest limbo, and gather everyone for a dancing parade (e.g., like a conga line). See images below. Weddings in the Bahamas also has a list of talented comedians, magicians and dancers that are ready to perform at your special wedding weekend event. Our goal is to help you discover the right talented entertainers to enhance your special day and make memories for a lifetime.

Tips for a Bahama Wedding During Hurricane Season

Each year, the official Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th. But just because there’s a higher incidence of rain and storms during these months doesn’t mean you should avoid a Wedding in the Bahamas during this time.

Summer weddings in the Bahamas are amazing. Late afternoon rain showers are normal and typically brief (lasting 15 to 30 minutes). And after a storm passes, the temperature drops slightly, and rain clouds stay low in the sky which produces vibrant and memorable sunsets.

Weddings in the Bahamas understands your day is special and will help you plan your ceremony so that it avoids historic times of the day when rain is expected. All wedding packages by Weddings in the Bahamas include a back-up weather plan. That means our team is not only ready with umbrellas, but also an alternate indoor location in case a rainstorm cannot be avoided during your planned outdoor ceremony.

August and September have the highest incidence of hurricane activity in the waters surrounding the Bahamas. And while news reports make it appear as if the Caribbean is under constant threat of a major storm during the Atlantic hurricane season, there actually have only been six hurricanes to directly hit the Bahamas in the last 22 years.

Storm Categories:

Tropical storms are categorized in the following progression:

  • Tropical depression: sustained winds of 38 mph (33 knots) or less
  • Tropical storm: sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph
  • Category 1 hurricane: sustained winds of 74-95 mph
  • Category 2 hurricane: sustained winds of 96-110 mph
  • Category 3 hurricane: sustained winds of 111-129 mph
  • Category 4 hurricane: sustained winds of 130-156 mph
  • Category 5 hurricane: sustained winds of 157+ mph

Weather Advisories:

Storm advisories warn residents and travelers of impending danger from severe weather. They will be issued in this manner:

  • Tropical storm ALERT: Within 48 hours, a tropical storm (34-73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Tropical storm WATCH: Within 36 hours, tropical storm (34-73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Tropical storm WARNING: Within 24 hours, tropical storm (34-73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Tropical storm ALL CLEAR: The storm has left the area, but caution should prevail.
  • Hurricane ALERT: Within 48 hours, a hurricane (winds over 73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Hurricane WATCH: Within 36 hours, a hurricane (winds over 73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Hurricane WARNING: Within 24 hours, a hurricane (winds over 73 mph) is likely to hit.
  • Hurricane ALL-CLEAR: The hurricane has left the area, but caution should prevail. You must wait to hear an all-clear.

Mother nature may be unpredictable, but Weddings in the Bahamas is not. We guarantee to keep you safe with a temporary location to wait out a storm until it passes or an alternate venue to proceed with the ceremony if it does not. In rare cases when a hurricane is predicted to hit the island, we will work to negotiate change orders and/or refunds with vendors and help you secure new dates of service.

The Bahamas Hotel & Tourism Association and the Ministry of Tourism work with businesses to ensure all are adequately prepared to handle the impact of hurricanes and natural disasters.

For this reason, most hotels in the Bahamas have adopted a hurricane cancellation policy that provides for a full or partial refund in cases of cancellation due to an evacuation order or delayed arrival caused by a hurricane.

Modern building design and regulations governing construction and building codes in the Bahamas reflect high standards. As such, most buildings constructed in this century can withstand hurricane force winds and severe flooding.

Old Fort Bay Club Weddings by Weddings in the Bahamas

Host your destination wedding at Old Fort Bay Club, a private waterfront community on New Providence Island that sits atop historic land and encapsulates the spirit of Old Bahamas with 100-year-old gardens and trees, vintage décor, and the rustic architectural charms of a former military fort.

Read our post on Why You Should Hire a Wedding Planner for your destination wedding.

Off Fortbay Wedding Collage

Built to fend off invading pirates, an amazing historic military installation stood on the property for 200 years. It was partially demolished in 1897, and a few remaining walls, walkways and a cannon remain. The property is now home to Old Fort Bay Club, a private social club that embraces the historic character of the former military fort. It is a one-of-a-kind venue nestled between a pristine beach and deep bay lagoon lending to a dramatic picturesque backdrop for your special day.

The Old Fort Bay Club property offers several locations for your wedding vows including a beach, a garden lawn, a treetop terrace, a garden terrace, and the paradise pavilion. Parties of up to 650 can be accommodated. Weddings in the Bahamas is familiar with the property and can help you chose the right setting based on your wedding day vision.

Working with Weddings in the Bahamas, we stage your ceremony with arbors, floral arrangements, and chairs and will help you select all the other special touches including music, an officiant and the transportation. Host your wedding reception at the club and you will enjoy fresh seafood, meat and vegetable dishes prepared by highly trained chefs. Explore our wedding packages for your Old Fort Bay Club wedding.

Wedding photographers (and guests) love Old Fort Bay Club because of its visual biodiversity. There are many natural elements on the property that provide amazing settings and backdrops including colorful staircases with wrought iron gates, mature palm trees, lush tropical vegetation and climbing flowering vines, white-washed beaches, ornamental tile entries, vintage archways, eclectic décor, garden lighting, and an expansive open greenspace with a tranquil labyrinth.

Because it’s a private club, this venue is a popular choice for couples who want to enjoy a secluded ceremony experience. Limited access means it is very peaceful and you don’t have to worry about crowds or intrusive noises from the public. Weddings in the Bahamas recommends planning early in order to secure a date and preferred wedding site at Old Fort Bay Club.

While Old Fort Bay Club does not have individual guest accommodations (hotel), there are staging rooms for the bridal party to get ready. The club is about a 45-minute drive from Atlantis, 40-minute drive from the cruise port, and 25-minute drive from Baha Mar. Weddings in the Bahamas will organize transportation for your entire party.

Working with Weddings in the Bahamas, we can help you apply for and obtain a marriage license, and book other necessary wedding services such as hair, nails, makeup, flowers, tux rentals, officiant, transportation, and photographer or videographer.

Navigating Bahamas Travel Health Protocols in 2022

(Current as of April 12, 2022) – As travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic begin to soften around the world, you might be concerned that a destination wedding in a foreign country might create more complications than it’s worth for you and your wedding party.

Keeping up with the requirements as they change week-to-week may seem overwhelming in addition to planning your dream wedding. But have no fear! Weddings in the Bahamas has been helping couples fulfill their dream weddings in the Bahamas during every phase of the travel health restrictions, so we understand how to make the process flow without glitches.

Step 1: Register for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa

As a Weddings in the Bahamas client, we will help you create a schedule to meet all travel health visa paperwork and testing deadlines. This information can be shared with your guests too as they will also be required to set up your travel health visa account. Most applications take between 24-36 hours to process and cost $40 for North American travelers and $50 for international travelers so it’s important to remind your guests that their accounts should be setup at least two weeks before your Wedding in the Bahamas date. Your Bahamas health visa purchase includes trip insurance coverage to cover the cost of possible quarantine or medical services as a result of contracting COVID-19 in the Bahamas.

Apply for your Bahamas Travel Health Visa HERE.

Step 2: Obtain a Pre-travel COVID-19 Test 

Regardless of your vaccine status, you will be required to upload into your travel health visa account proof of a negative result from  a COVID-19 RT-PCR Test that was taken within 72 hours of your travel date. This often comes in the form of an email or letter from the test provider (e.g., pharmacist or physician).

Not sure which test is accepted for entry and exit? Weddings in the Bahamas can help you identify qualified test providers on both ends of your visit.

Step 3: Check Your Airline or Cruise Line Health Travel Requirements

In most cases, travelers will need to present a copy of their approved Bahamas Travel Health Visa to gate agents in order to board the plane or ship. For those who have obtained both doses of the vaccination, it is also likely that you will need to provide proof of vaccination. Be aware that your last dose must be received at least two weeks prior to travel in order to pass the two-week immunity period.

All travelers must present the final confirmation document of their Travel Health Visa application, along with their negative COVID-19 test results and proof of full vaccination (if applicable), upon boarding flights to The Bahamas and again upon arrival in The Bahamas.

Weddings in the Bahamas is familiar with the unique travel health requirements for most major airlines and cruise lines and will help you fulfill their requirements as well.

Step 4: Obtain a COVID-19 Test to Exit the Bahamas

All travelers will need to obtain a COVID-19 viral test (regardless of vaccination status or citizenship) no more than one day before traveling/returning to the United States. Weddings in the Bahamas will help you and your party schedule appointments and can arrange transportation to receive a test at a qualified testing site near your hotel. Most hotels provide free testing as a courtesy to guests. The negative test result must be shown to the travel carrier before you board your flight or cruise ship.

Please be aware that face masks are required in public places in the Bahamas. Failure to wear a mask in public may be subject to a fine of $250. The CDC and Bahamian Ministry of Health recommend vaccination to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19 and its variants.

As your wedding planner, Weddings in the Bahamas wants to make your destination wedding in the Bahamas as stress-free as possible. We will work to help you and your guests find answers to questions about COVID-19 travel protocols or unique health situations. Hire us and discover the difference experience makes.

The wedding venues anticipate the extras “feel goods” too – like dancefloors, adjustable lighting, privacy and amazing window views. You won’t find rolling carts, lopsided tables, cords taped across floors or tattered window dressings at Baha Mar’s wedding venues.

Baha Mar staff are also highly attuned to serve with a smile. They take pride in appearance and a job well done. Every detail and finish are clean and remiss of any imperfections. The level of attentiveness is second to none.

The Benefits of Being a Guest

Even the Locals Hire Weddings in the Bahamas

Whether it’s two weeks or two years until your destination wedding date, Weddings in the Bahamas can help you design a custom experience that includes ideas for the big day and ideas leading up to it so you can enjoy maximum guest attendance.

For Dexter and Shannen, a long engagement created an opportunity for the two lovebirds. “We met in the Bahamas back in 2008 and he proposed in 2019,” said Shannen, who added, “But no one could have predicted the obstacle we were about to face.”

Waiting for a pandemic to end would be stressful for most couples planning a wedding, but Shannen and Dexter used the extra time to build anticipation and keep their guests connected through updates on their custom wedding page. They also added a virtual streaming option so friends who were unable to attend in person could still participate in the live ceremony.

The couple lived in Freeport during their courtship and their love affair endured over a long distance while Shannen attended college. On an annual trip in 2019 to celebrate her birthday with family in the Bahamas, Dexter proposed and Shannen accepted.

Once travel restrictions were lifted, a wedding date was finally set. Their wedding in the Bahamas took place on February 12, 2022, at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, a beautiful island resort in Nassau, Bahamas. Working with Weddings in the Bahamas, Shannen and Dexter shared their vows in front of family and friends in person and streaming from a Waterside Chapel. A lively reception followed on the resort’s Banyan Terrace.

Even though they knew about the myriad of wedding services offered at local resorts, they hired Weddings in the Bahamas because Anne Marie’s level of service and reputation are unmatched and undisputed.

“Most of our clients are travelers,” said Weddings in the Bahamas owner Anne Marie Williams, who’s also a licensed wedding planner living in Nassau. “So, it was fun to work with a couple who also lives in Nassau. And because of this, I was able to guide them to a collection of local providers they could visit. Luckily, I’ve spent my career in Nassau building close working relationships with many local decorators, entertainers, caterers, florists, and photographers in order to offer another level of creative freedom for brides and grooms. For Shannen and Dexter, this allowed them to truly be part of building their wedding from start to finish.”

From the décor to the music and photography, every detail is planned with care by Anne Marie. The outcome: A truly magical and memorable wedding in the Bahamas experience. Take a look at the photos below from Dexter and Shannen’s wedding in the Bahamas to see the benefits of working with a local, Bahamian-based wedding planner.

Offshore Weddings in the Bahamas

Are you dreaming of a destination wedding in the Bahamas?

Here’s a unique idea: Host your wedding on the water!

We know beach weddings in the Bahamas are popular – but envision the magical romance of taking your vows on the sunny deck of a private yacht before sharing your first sunset together as husband and wife. An intimate wedding aboard a yacht or sailboat allows a couple and guests to explore the isles, cays, and secluded beaches of the Bahamas. It’s a great treat for sailors, boaters, and water-loving couples from around the world.

One great advantage of visiting the Bahamas is access to so many water-based activities. From jet skis to kayaks, snorkeling and deep-sea fishing, the water beckons. With our friends in the Bahamas yacht charter business, we can help you host a memorable reception dinner, wedding, or post-ceremony sunset cruise for the entire wedding party aboard a luxury motor yacht, catamaran, or sailboat.

OFFSHORE WEDDINGS IN THE BAHAMAS

This couple from Austria hired Weddings in the Bahamas to manage their wedding ceremony on a catamaran, and then sailed it to Exuma for their honeymoon.

Set Sail into Your Life Together

Yacht ceremonies are becoming very popular in the Bahamas, and why not! Even if you arrive by cruise ship, a wedding on a boat in the Bahamas is very special. With a little imagination, you can have a wedding to remember as you sail around tropical islands in style aboard a large catamaran or custom sailboat.

Enjoy your entire wedding day offshore. It’s a dream come true. With Weddings in the Bahamas as your partner, you can eat, sleep, explore, and wed on water.

Custom charters for couples before or after their land-based ceremonies are also a great wedding add-on idea. Weddings in the Bahamas can secure the yacht and crew so you can say your vows on the beach and then set sail for a very private honeymoon. Enjoy everything from gourmet meals and luxury accommodations to visiting hidden grottos and the famous swimming pigs of the Bahamas.

A Sailors Delight!

Being surrounded by tropical waters means experienced sailors have access to many local boat lease options to explore the islands of the Bahamas alone. Weddings in the Bahamas has vetted a number of reputable marinas and boat rental companies and can help you choose the right option for your adventure.

Add water to your wedding. Call Weddings in the Bahamas to start designing your wedding on the water today at 1-877-232-5854.
