With Nassau Paradise Island’s multi-hued turquoise waters, white powdery sand, lush green palm trees and clear blue skies, you’ll already have one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world for your wedding. So that’s one big item completed on your checklist!

And while planning a destination wedding on Nassau Paradise Island might be easier than you think, it’s not quite as simple as adding a special event to an exotic trip. Like a traditional wedding, a successful destination wedding in The Bahamas requires proper planning. To help you put your best foot forward before you walk down the aisle (or beach), here’s a handy list of questions to get you started.

For Those Who Cannot Attend

Even if some of your family and friends may not be able to join you in The Bahamas, they can still be here in spirit.

  • Can you make a webcam available during the ceremony?
  • How long will it take to get our photos back, and can they be quickly posted to an online photo album?
  • What type of Internet access is available at your property?
