Engaged? 4 Reasons to Tie the Knot in Nassau!
If you and your partner are thinking of having your wedding somewhere a little exotic where the weather will stay sunny, then you should consider Nassau.
This is the capital of the Bahamas and the ideal location for that beach wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
Below are 4 reasons why we think that Nassau is the place for you.
The first and most obvious reason you can consider Nassau is the stunning weather. The weather is the perfect medium hovering between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit reaching 82 in the summer (between 21 and 27 degrees Celsius). You won’t have to worry about getting too hot and sweating off your perfect make-up, but you won’t freeze to death either.
You can also almost guarantee your wedding day will be sunny, as the island has about 300 days of sunshine a year. You need to be a little careful as Nassau does have a hurricane season, so you may want to avoid this time of year. That season is typically between August and October.
2. Catering to Taste & Budget
Even if your budget is relatively small the island will still be able to cater to your requirements. If you are looking for a more private luxury hotel to stay in or find something a little more family-friendly and cheaper, there are plenty of options.
If you would prefer to have everything in one place some more recent builds have a chapel included on site, like the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar which also has a wedding pavilion.
Nassau has a large selection of bars and restaurants too, so you are bound to find something to suit the whole wedding parties’ tastes. These are also ideal for bachelor and bachelorette parties prior to the wedding. Everything from lavish locations like the Bond nightclub to the Baha Mar where you can bar hop, there is something for everyone here.
3. Plenty of activities
For before and after your wedding the island has a myriad of different activities to do. As part of your pre-wedding ceremony celebrations, you and your wedding guests can keep yourselves busy. And when the wedding is over, the happy couple can stay behind for their honeymoon or your guests can use your big day as the start to a much-needed vacation.
If you and your partner fancy a bit of pampering before the big day you can rest assured there are plenty of relaxation facilities, like ESPA spa. You can get one of the signature treatments like the Seashell massage and there are even some treatments specifically for the men so everyone can relax and unwind.
To make your time in Nassau even more memorable, you could even try diving or snorkelling in order to see some of the best diving waters in the world (we’d love to help you with this!). Or you could hop to another island to see the iguanas or the pink beaches if you don’t want to stay put in Nassau.
4. Unique Wedding Services
There are obviously traditional services available, but you can always spice up your wedding with something a little different. Most hotels will have a hall or chapel where you can have a beautiful service and some of the popular destinations have been recently refurbished. You can also have it out on the open on a private cay if you’re wanting the ocean as your backdrop.
If you want your wedding location to have a real tropical feel you could even have your wedding at the Botanical Gardens surrounded by nature.
Maybe you like the idea of having dolphins at your wedding? At the Blue Lagoon, you can have a dolphin be your ring bearer. And is you them surrounding you, you can go all in and have your wedding underwater.
