Sandals Resorts has introduced a new wedding planning concept that give couples the opportunity to add their personality and style to their wedding celebrations.

Giving couples everything they need to make their wedding ceremony and reception at the resort a celebration of their personality and style.

Marsha-Ann Brown, director of romance for Sandals Resorts said, ‘At Sandals Resorts, a WeddingMoon is the ultimate celebration of a couple’s romance. Everything during their stay should reflect their taste and style as a couple, from the Love Nest Luxury Suites that were designed especially to offer newlyweds the seclusion they desire, to their own personal butler, who will cater to their every need, be it an indulgent couples spa treatment or a private waterfront candlelit dinner.’

Sandals has created an on-line Destination Wedding Designer which allows couples to design their wedding well in advance, while choosing from nearly 1,000 wedding ideas including everything from including flowers, decor, wedding cakes, photography, salon and beauty treatments, and Catering requirements.

Once the planning is done a unique code is generated by the system to make booking the wedding at the resort a simply process.

Sixteen couples from the UK were married simultaneously on 16 incredible islands of the Bahamas on May 16, 2012 in uniquely designed theme wedding ceremonies reflective of each island's characteristics.

The couple were winners of the Bahamas 16 Islands Wedding Invitation promotion which focused on sharing the islands of the Bahamas with the world.

Mary Gleeson and James Potter of Whitfield, Dover experienced their nuptial with the "ENCHANTED ENCOUNTER" theme and a Bahamas underwater wedding off the island of Grand Bahama.

Grand Bahama Island one of the larger of the Bahamas island is home to the world’s largest limestone cave system in The Lucayan National Park and some of the world’s longest white sand beaches, surrounded by crystal clear waters with every sea-shade from sparkling emerald to startling turquoise.

The ceremony on the ocean floor with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in attendance was just to the couple's liking as James a diving instructor said, “Having got engaged in the most unromantic of places (our lounge) whilst suffering from thrombosis in 2006, I couldn't be more thrilled to finally have the opportunity to marry Mary - not only in The Bahamas but in our favourite place - underwater!”

Mary and James are now honeymooning at the Grand Lucayan Resort, Grand Bahama.

TSA Offers Advice for Bahamas Wedding Brides

I found an article on the TSA Blog that I am sure all you Bahamas wedding brides would be interested in reading.  In it the Transportation Security Administration gives advise on what brides traveling to a destination wedding should do.  

The real relief for me was captured in the topic of the blog post “TSA Says Yes to the Dress.” As most Bahamas wedding brides are usually concern about how they are going to get their wedding dress to the Bahamas, so this was great news and useful information to have for you as you plan your destination wedding in the Bahamas.

The really good news from the TSA is that “Brides-to-be can definitely bring their wedding dress through a security checkpoint.” And what about the screening “Ideally, the dress can lay flat in its garment bag or other packaging and fit through the X-ray machine.” 

If your wedding dress can not fit through the X-ray machine, then an officer will screen the dress manually,  which will require opening the garment bag but the TSA is saying “Rest assured that our officers will use gloves for the alternate screening to avoid damaging the dress.”
