There are a few times during the year when we equate festivities with fun, happiness, family, friends, LOVE, and the FUTURE… and a Christmas, Hanukah, or New Years wedding fulfills the wedding of your dreams!

Now that the idea is a winner for you as a couple and your friends and family, where is the best destination? While there are many exquisite choices worldwide, Susan Clegg, Founder of Starfish Events Bahamas, feels The Bahamas is the best wedding location and Starfish Events Bahamas is your perfect choice – hands down one of the best event planners within the industry.

Why The Bahamas?

It is difficult to argue that the Bahamas is indeed a Paradise. An Island Paradise during the Holiday Christmas Season – wow, just picture that in your mind for a moment! Tropical weather yet not too hot, the festival celebrations the Bahamas has to offer during the holiday season, New Years Junkaboo Parade, the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony and the assortment of concerts. The hotels and other tourist areas come alive this time of year in a special way.


For the golf enthusiast, the pristine golf resorts in the Bahamas add to the allure of a wedding or corporate event. Many golf resorts include other amenities such as luxury hotels and spas. Something for everyone – with views of the ocean or a tropical landscape. Some of the more popular golf resorts include:

  • Baker’s Bay Golf Club – The Abacos
  • Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course – The Exumas

  • Ruby Golf Course – Freeport
  • The Royal Blue Golf Club – Nassau, Paradise Island
  • Treasure Cay Golf Club – The Abacos
  • Ocean Club Golf Course – Nassau, Paradise Island

While we often say there are around 30 islands in the Bahamas, the truth is there are as many as 700 islands and 2,400 cays. The Bahamas archipelago spans 760 miles with the western islands only 44 miles from Florida. With a stunning view of ocean life visible in the clear waters, a boat excursion is a dream come true. What a memory to add to your holiday wedding! Some of the more popular boating marinas and boating companies are:

A scenic excursion on a boat is great, but why not include fishing to the equation?

Choose from deep sea fishing, fly fishing, or reef fishing. Some of the venues to consider are:

  • Exuma Cays Adventures
  • Born Free Fishing and Charters
  • Boat Harbour Marina
  • Jus 1 Danz Boat Tours
