Rob · Getting married on 09/29/2021
** READ THIS REVIEW ** We are an american couple from New Jersey and wanted to get married on the beach in Nassau, but not at a resort. We rented our own house in a private area and wanted to host it there. Only problem was, we knew nothing about planning a wedding 1,000 miles away! We did some research and found Paulette, and decided to fly down to Nassau and meet her in person. From that first meeting, we knew she was the planner for us. Booked her immeditaely (18 months ahead of time) and began working on the details. Let me tell you, Paulette know how to plan a wedding!! She guided us through every step of the way, and recommended things that we didnt even think of. On the day of the wedding, she was present to make sure things ran smoothly. We went with a catered lunch and dinner, both of which were AMAZING and everyone raved about how good the food was. We went with a live band, who Paulette booked personally, and THEY KEPT THE PARTY ROCKING ALL NIGHT LONG. Im not just saying that either... I am a musician and my friends are too, and they all loved the band. She got us a bouquet and bouteneers that were exactly what my bride wanted. She got the same flower arrangements for our table centerpieces too (which BTW she rented us a full set of tables, chairs, and arranged a lighting guy to light up our spot!!). For the ceremony we had a draped arch on the beach along with 50 folding chairs, enough for all our guests. Im telling you, I would not have been able to do this wedding without her. She was always in touch with us throughout the time leading up to the wedding, and making payments to her was super easy. Please, if you are getting married in the bahamas, dont try to tackle all the little things yourself. Save yourself the hassle and just sit back and let Paulette plan everything perfectly for you. Its the best wedding decision we made, hands down. Thank you Paulette!!!! Love, Rob & Rosana 9/1/2018Sent on 09/13/2018
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Rob and Rosana, I am so late with thanking you for such a wonderful review. I do hope that you and your amazing amazing friends will be back. And I am waiting on some of those pictures.

Paulette - Our COVID Destination Wedding Angel
We met Paulette in an untraditional way. Our wedding venue changed two weeks out and we needed a planner to help us with our new venue as soon as possible. We were connected with Paulette and immediately knew she was the perfect person to help us. To say Paulette is organized is an understatement. She immediately provided us with planning documents, connected with our vendors, and ensured we felt confident that our wedding would be flawless... regardless of the need to completely replan it with two weeks to spare. She was extremely responsive and was always willing to pick up the phone to talk things through.Sent on 02/23/2021
Planning a wedding is stressful enough, add a destination wedding during a pandemic with ever changing guidelines, and it is a lot more than you ever want to worry about. Paulette made the planning exciting and stress free again, something that was missing during the majority of our experience. It was not easy staying updated on updated restrictions in both the US and the Bahamas. Lucky for us, Paulette was committed to clarifying each and every update from the Bahamas on our behalf. Paulette’s years of experience was essential to our day going as smooth as possible. She is deeply connected through the community and her relationships with vendors, various government departments, and the resorts were the only reason we felt comfortable proceeding with our day.
Our wedding day was flawless, and that was all thanks to Paulette. We even had updates to our event restrictions occur on the day of. Paulette handled everything on our behalf. She organized each update and communication with our vendors while we were able to focus on the special moments with our families and friends. We enjoyed every aspect of our day and did not worry about any details because Paulette had it handled. We received so many compliments from our guests of how amazing Paulette was as they watched her throughout the day.
Even after our day Paulette when above and beyond. The Bahamas unfortunately reversed back to lockdown a few weeks after our wedding. This led to an issue with obtaining our marriage certificate. Of course, our angel Paulette came to rescue. She advocated on our behalf and was able to pick up our certificate the day the government offices reopened. She immediately mailed the certificates to us and we did not have to worry at all. Paulette is one of the most genuine and kind humans we have ever met. We are now eight months married and still talk to Paulette frequently. She feels like family to us and we cannot wait to visit with her once we go back to our favorite island again.
My only regret is that we did not meet Paulette earlier in the planning process. Thank you to Paulette for everything. Our wedding was amazing because of you.
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Ok Erika, I don't need to tell you how this made me feel do I? Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot, especially as I try to find my footing again with the changes in the world.

Say YES to Paulette
Working with Paulette to plan our daughter’s wedding was a true pleasure! Her vast experience, positive approach and calm demeanor were invaluable as we navigated planning a destination wedding. With her at the helm, the weekend not only was a huge success but exceeded our dreams. The bride and groom and both families got to enjoy the fun and not worry about the details because we had Paulette and her team- thank goodness!Sent on 05/12/2020
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Thank you Susan. I think you know that I really enjoyed being a part of this special time. Christina had one particular request, that I get the timing right. I am thrilled that it all came together so well and thank you for the honor of bringing it all together and for your trust in me.

Paulette was brilliant! She did probably even more than we expected!
Would recommend Paulette’s services any day! Can´t explain how perfect Paulette was from the beginning until the end of our wedding! We were from Europe and didn’t had a clue where to begin and what to do,to get married in Bahamas.Sent on 10/10/2019
She went well behind her duties in making our weedings so amazing.
No only is she an absolute expert in weddings , but she is also such a warm, friendly and genuine person, she really cares about YOU and your special day and she always goes that extra mile for you. She doesn't just offer you a first class service, but also an extremely personal one, becoming a great friend in the process.
As we talked after, Paulette,hope to see you soon and thank you again!

Nancy · Married on 06/29/2019
I could never have gotten through my planning and the entire wedding week without Paulette. Within hours of submitting a request, she contacted me to set up a call. I explained to her my stress and overwhelmed feelings with planning. She was so sweet and immediately calmed me down and assured me that she'd help me through everything. She has such a kind gentle spirit, while at the same time being a go-getter and knowing how to get things done efficiently. Especially the week of the wedding, Paulette was there for everything I needed and even through the reception stayed as long as I needed her to. I am forever grateful for Paulette's services and would recommend her a million times over to anyone!Sent on 07/31/2019
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Thank you Nancy. It was a joy being a part of your wedding. You both have amazing families and friends.

Paulette and her staff made our wedding dream a reality!
Paulette came highly recommended to us by the best event company in Nassau. Paulette was able to take our vision of what we wanted for our wedding- Paulette was able to connect me with the best sources and vendors on the island: from cake, flowers, officiant, rehearsal dinner, music and venues. Paulette met us at our hotel to finalize the paperwork and took care of all the details. She handled all of the planning, preparation for our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception. The day of the wedding, we felt so happy and relaxed. Paulette handled every single detail! Our ceremony at a private club was beautiful and intimate- Paulette and her assistants made sure that it was perfect. The cocktail hour followed by the reception were stunning- with so many small touches. Everything was on a time and without delay. As a bride, I didn't have to worry that I wasn't on site to make every selection or meet all the vendors. Paulette was able to schedule calls with me to go through all of the logistics and requirements, and make recommendations. When my family and I arrived, I was able to enjoy my time in the Bahamas, all of our guests commended that it was the best wedding they had been to, and I know it would not have happened without Paulette's expertise and experience and professionalism.Sent on 08/21/2019
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Thank you Katie. Your words are warming and heartfelt. YOU.... were an amazing bride. Calm and easy to work with. Your family and friends all made it so much easier for us to do what we do. Thank you for your review. Until we see each other again...... here - or there.
Rylee · Married on 05/12/2019
There aren't even words to explain how grateful I am to have found Paulette and hired her to plan my ceremony. I was in Oregon and Paulette handled everything and we just showed up! The flowers were beautiful, the location was exactly what we wanted, but most importantly she made the process SO simple. Thank you Paulette for everything. Our day was beautiful and magical because of you. We will appreciate you forever!Sent on 05/21/2019
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Oh Rylee, Thank you. You both are amazing and we wish you so much happiness in your future. We are truly blessed that we have the opportunity to be of service to special people like you. You make my job a dream and after all these years keep me loving what I do. Stay happy and wonderful!!

Fantastic - an absolute must!!
Paulette was absolutely incredible and we could not have pulled off our wedding without her help. She's responsive, organized, professional, detail oriented, kind, and has become a friend to us over the course of the last few months while planning our wedding together. We could not recommend this team more!Sent on 01/30/2019
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Thank you Chantal. It was such a pleasure and privilege to work with you and Henry. Your vision and style were beautiful. Your attitude towards the process and your kind spirit made it enjoyable for me and I am just so happy that you were both happy. Here's looking forward to the years to come.
Alexander · Married on 04/15/2018
Paulette was on point with everything and made the impossible possible. It was never about the money with her, it was always about the service and making sure we were covered by being well prepared with all required documents that were needed to get married. She was also never pushy about the payment, she was just going with the flow and completely honest about each step. I deal with lots of people in business and I can tell you, that Paulette is one of the good people left in this world ! I highly recommend her because she won't disappoint you! Small or large budget she will treat you royally! Thank you PauletteSent on 05/25/2018

Ken · Married on 11/07/2017
On November 7th, 2017 we celebrated our ten year wedding anniversary at Goodman's Bay in Nassau and Paulette and her team exceeded our expectations.
A year and a half ago I began my communications from Canada with Paulette in Nassau. Paulette was quick to reply to literally dozens of emails over the last eighteen months and when we finally met her and her team it was like reuniting with family.
We told Paulette what we had in mind for our ceremony and she took care of everything, from transportation, flowers, photography, videography, to location, minister, music and some beautiful extras like a sand ceremony.
We were only ported in Nassau for one day from a cruise ship, but everything flowed perfectly as planned. Paulette is very accommodating and will bend over backwards to make your special day the one of your dreams.
Thank you Paulette and Amour Affairs!!

Paulette was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about her. She made the entire planning process and day of so easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Paulette to anyone!!!Sent on 11/21/2017
Andrea · Married on 10/30/2017
My daughter Jaclyn always knew that her wedding would be in Nassau Bahamas as we spent every Christmas and lots of summers there. Planning any wedding is challenging but a destination wedding for over 100 people can be daunting.
On my first fact finding trip to Nassau one name kept being mentioned. Everyone said if you want to enjoy this process and know that everything will be taken care of then you must meet Paulette at Amour Affairs.
I called Paulette and she met with me that afternoon. She was early, organized but for me the deciding factor was that you could tell she genuinely loves what she does.
Paulette knows everyone on the island, she has an excellent reputation with all the venues management, which goes a long way on a small island.
Paulette also responded very quickly to all my questions and concerns she provided me with choices for everything from the decor vendors to string quartets, steelpan player, DJ’s and limo services in all price points.
Most of the guest stayed at the Atlantis and other private rentals on Paradise Island, Paulette managed all the transportation for all the events planned ( which was no small feat).
The ceremony was held at the Cloisters, Paradise Island followed by the reception at Luciano’s on Nassau.
The morning of the wedding Paulette arrived at the home we rented she was so organized and so focused, I knew I could just leave it all in her hands and enjoy this perfect day with my daughter.
Everything was perfect, Paulette’s staff was everywhere. They were at both venues, at the hotels making sure all the guests get on buses, at the grooms rental home...
Needless to say Paulette was invaluable to my family both through the planning process and especially the day of. I know for sure this day would not have been perfect had it not been for Paulette Davis and her staff at Amour Affairs.Sent on 12/03/2017
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:Let's do it again!!! I loved every minute of it. Thank you for so many kind words. We made a great team.

If you want the best then you want Amour Affairs. Paulette goes out of her way to make sure you get exactly what you want. From the Pastor to the Photographer to the stunning flowers and delicious cake, she made it all come true. We celebrated a renewal of our vows after 15yrs and Paulette made it unforgettable.

Patrick · Married on 07/27/2016
If you are reading these comments, like we were not too long ago, then please let me give you some advice to save you time and just ask you to stop now and simply email Paulette. Our initial email was an obsessive list of 40+ questions that she very quickly responded to with very thorough answers. Honestly, just stop now and email Paulette, then continue reading…Sent on 07/31/2016
This amazing and powerful super-woman has tremendous experience, profound insight, and long-lasting relationships with all the top professional vendors. Regardless of how big of a perfectionist you are, how much anxiety you might have, how obsessive compulsive or controlling you might be, how large or small of an event you are planning, Paulette will absolutely astound you beyond anything you could ever possibly dream or imagine. The absolute best decision of our lives was choosing Paulette Davis at Amour Affairs. I am typically an articulate individual but lack the appropriate words to encapsulate the pure splendor, the immense joy, the highest admiration, the deep love that we have for her. Do not waste your time or money standing in line for the amusement park style resort packaged wedding planners, do not risk using anyone less than the absolute best. The greatest wedding advice we could ever give is to get Paulette on your team. From our initial email to now she has gone from someone we initially considered to be our wedding planner to someone we now consider to be family. She is a powerful guardian angel, a magical fairy god-mother, and a wedding planning superhero that you will be humbled by and absolutely honored to have on your side. We cannot endorse her highly enough to proportionately honor the effort, the work, the service she has performed for us.
Bahamas Wedding Planner's reply:I responded to you in private but you have said so much more here. I love the things i get to do to earn a living. I love the great people I meet and work with. Sometimes its different and some people touch my heart and tug a little more. Patrick we laughed about your long emails with your concerns and then you finally trusted me - and i thank you for that. I know it is not easy to do. I am happy to be part of your family and look forward to seeing and sharing time with you again. Much love - from my heart.
