A Destination Wedding is Perfect For You!

When it comes to saying, “I do”, a destination wedding would be perfect for you! You and your spouse-to-be have always enjoyed travel, you’ll get to spend extended time with your nearest and dearest, and you’ll appreciate the stunning simplicity of a wedding by the beach. Not only that, a destination wedding helps you stick to your budget because although you may be traveling abroad, attractive wedding packages in The Bahamas and a smaller guest list will help mitigate any surprise bills.

If you answered mostly Bs:

The Wedding of Your Dreams is One Held at Home.

You are traditionalists at heart, and you can’t bear the idea of getting married without the entire extended family present. And that’s just fine! If staying home is what will make your wedding dreams come true then that’s exactly what you should do. If a destination wedding isn’t worth it to you, consider saving up for a honeymoon in the Bahamas instead! That way you can enjoy Nassau Paradise Island, just the two of you.
