Best Bahamas Destination Weddings

One&Only Ocean Club

One of the most elegant resorts in the Bahamas, the One&Only Ocean Club has a choice of over-the-top sites for nuptials, from Versailles-inspired terraced gardens to a sun-dappled pool terrace. The cr'me de la cr'me spot to exchange 'I do's' is the resort's 12th century arched Augustinian cloisters. The One&Only Ocean Club has been hosting the world's royalty for half a century, and will deliver a gracious Caribbean plantation high-style wedding.

Sandals Great Exuma

Sandals Emerald Bay on Great Exuma delivers sophistication at an all-inclusive price. The beachfront resort's wedding centerpiece is the garden wedding gazebo, featuring an ocean view and reflecting pool. If you have pre-wedding jitters, sooth them away at the resort's Red Lane Spa. After the ceremony, since it's all-inclusive, your guests won't be dipping into their pockets every time they lift their glasses in a champagne toast. Active brides and grooms will enjoy the resort's championship golf course and marina.

Graycliff Hotel

You'll imagine you were transported back to Caribbean colonial times when you're wed at Graycliff Hotel, which dates back to 1740. With only 20 rooms, you'll be forgiven if you think you're staying at your own private estate. This Nassau property has splendid gardens and intimate pools, perfect for exchanging vows. Graycliff is equally celebrated for its restaurant's award winning wine cellar and Bahamian-influenced cuisine. For a light touch, order some primo cigars from the on-site Graycliff Cigar Company, with custom-made labels commemorating your special day.

The Cove Atlantis

Caribbean charm meets Las Vegas hip at Paradise Island's The Cove Atlantis. This adults-only refuge provides the wow factor, with venue options that range from the underwater mystery of The Dig marine habitat, to Cain at the Cove, where the cool factor is supplied The Cove's ultra pool, with two elevated infinity pools at each end. For the ultimate Caribbean backdrop, opt for the resort's Cove Beach, where you can tie the knot against a serene backdrop of sea and sky.

Abaco Beach Resort at Boat Harbor

For a wedding ceremony steeped in nature, take it to the Out Islands, to the Abaco Beach Resort at Boat Harbor. Dance to a calypso beat and let the tropical breezes blow while you soak up the Bahamian vibe. Large wedding groups can choose the spaciousness of The Marquee, where 400 can celebrate with a view of the marina. Additional venues include the sporty Marina Docks, the tiki torch lit Garden Pool, or the expansive Great Lawn.
