Hold Your Wedding in the Bahamas

As international nuptials go, a Bahamas wedding is bound to place high on the list. What else is there to say about a government that employs professional Romance Directors, whose only job is to make sure that your wedding in the Bahamas is as memorable as possible? The Weddings and Honeymoon Unit of the Bahamas Tourism Commission has also compiled a series of themes and locales for every style of wedding in the Bahamas, including a classic ceremony set against a backdrop of 13th century columns, a tropical garden wedding, and a raucous Bahamas wedding on the high seas. With so many options to choose from, your wedding in the Bahamas will truly be according to your own design. A Bahamas wedding of your dreams from start to finish…isn't that the way it's supposed to be?

Before a wedding in the Bahamas can take place, couples must apply for a marriage license in person at the Office of the Registrar General in Nassau. This should be done at least a few days before the Bahamas wedding, but only after the required 24-hour residency period on the island. Officials will need a valid passport, a notarized document swearing citizenship in their home country, a government issued ID with photograph, and a document proving arrival date on the Bahamas (i.e. an airline ticket). Licenses cost B$100 and can be used in a Bahamas wedding up to 90 days after being issued.
