Getting married on the beach in the Bahamas

Getting married on the beach in the Bahamas I am sure you know that there is nothing like getting married on the beach in the Bahamas – It is simply heavenly for a beach wedding ceremony!

And getting married on the beach in the Bahamas is a very romantic experience as well with pink or pure white powdery sand in your toes, relaxing crystal-clear turquoise waves rolling onto the shore nearby and your senses being tingled by the pristine, unspoiled panoramic view of the beach while holding the hands of your soul mate makes your beach wedding ceremony breathtaking.

And when it comes to getting married on the beach in the Bahamas that is no problem at all as the 700 Islands of the Bahamas stretches across some 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic ocean and home to some of the best and most pristine beaches in the world. And here is a little secret for you, other countries actually use pictures of beaches in the Bahamas for their tourism promotions.
 
 
In fact the Bahamas has more beaches than all the other islands of the Caribbean combined. Making it perfect place for getting married on the beach. And getting there is so easy as the Bahamas is only 50 miles off the coast of Florida and within hours of most North American cities.

So if your idea of getting married on the beach in the Bahamas consist of only you and your guest footprint in the sand, you are sure to find a secluded beach that is right for you.

Venue for getting married on the beach in the Bahamas

An ideal place for couple getting married on the beach in the Bahamas, is Nuptial Beach, located on the western end of Cable Beach, Nassau Bahamas.  As it is one of those really secluded spots for a beach wedding ceremony in Nassau.

So if you need help choosing a beach, Nuptial Beach is the beach I recommend for a beach wedding in Nassau.

And here is a short video to give you a feel of what it is like to be on Nuptial Beach.

Donaliquea & Wence Bahamas@sunrise Dream Wedding 2

Bahamas@Sunrise Bahamas Dream Wedding 2

Donaliquea & Wence Bahamas@sunrise Dream Wedding 2Wedding dreams were realized on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 7:30 AM for Donaliquea and Wence winners of Bahamas@sunrise Bahamas Dream Wedding 2. When the couple were married in a live televised wedding ceremony at the British Colonial Hilton,  downtown Nassau.

It is the second time that a local wedding has been televised live on the Bahamas’ National Television Station ZNS 13 and it is estimated that some eighty thousand persons may have watched the event.

The winners of the Bahamas@sunrise promotion Donaliquea and Wence,  won an all expense pay wedding package including a Caribbean honeymoon.  And in the process had their wedding planned entirely by the audience of the program. As every element of the wedding including the wedding cake, bride and bridesmaids dresses, groom and groomsmen attire, rings, wedding location and even the wedding reception menu were selected by the audience.

It may be fair to say that if the audience voting on the wedding elements were anything like those selected the couple in the first place, then the wedding planning was done by their families and friends,  as an estimated 8,500 persons voted for the couple during the contest.

Bahamas Dream Wedding

Wedding Dream Come true for Donaliquea & WenceDonaliquea and Wence first met in 1997 and soon became very good friends, eventually becoming engaged in 2004. But the couple separated in 2006 to allow themselves more time to grow and pursue individual goals.

And as love would have it the couple got engaged a second time in 2011 and this time fate rewarded their wedding dream with an all expense paid wedding and honeymoon.

The beach side wedding ceremony was performed by Dr. Richard Pinder, Senior Pastor at Bahamas Faith Ministries, the couple home church and witnessed by scores of family and friends.

The couple will be honeymooning at the Double Tree by Hilton in Costa Rica, the overwhelming choice of the Bahamas@sunrise viewers, as 76 percent of them voted for the Costa Rica as the honeymoon destination.

A clear indication that wedding dream do come true. And you can see more of the pictures from Bahamas@sunrise Bahamas Dream Wedding 2

Wedding Dress Designer Marry in Bahamas Beach Wedding

Wedding dress designer Chloe Dao was married in a Bahamas beach wedding ceremony recently.

Chloe, the Houston based fashion designer and second season winner of the fashion reality show “Project Runway” reportedly married her longtime fiancée Kenneth Pursley in a private beach wedding in the Bahamas.

Chloe’s Bahamas Beach Wedding

 And after years of designing wedding dresses for brides, Chloe finally got the opportunity to design her own wedding gown. And how did she approach her dress, Dao said “I didn’t want to over think my dress. I thought about my best assets and made a dress that showcased them.” Brides, a bit of advice you would do well to adapt

Chloe’s wedding dress was a “Heidi” made of luxury fabrics of Italian embroidered lace and double-lined the gown with silk charmeuse.  Featuring a classic basic body, above the knee length,  3/4 sleeve and low cleavage.

And how did she feel about her design, “It was the perfect dress for me to make me feel beautiful and classic.”

Brides this is so important because as Dao says “Show your best assets and you will always look and feel wonderful inside out.

Dao should know as her reputation for understanding women and their bodies landed her a contract with Dove as their national spokesperson for their “Sleeveless Ready” campaign.

We also like the dresses featured in Chloe Dao Spring Collection 2010 “Lightness” as they are just what brides would need for their destination weddings.

 Something else that Dao and Kenneth now know,  that you would be smart to take note of,  and that is,  there is no place like the Bahamas for a private beach wedding ceremony.

And I know when you think of the Bahamas you may think of crowded beaches but the Bahamas has more secluded beaches than all the other islands in the Caribbean combined compliment of beaches.

So you will definitely find the beach that is just right for your private beach wedding ceremony.
