Michaela · Married on 05/22/2015
Even though I've always dreamed of having a beach wedding, I was so nervous trusting someone to organize my big day from afar. Marva is truly one of a kind. Not only was she a wedding planner, but she was a consultant, a coordinator, and sometimes even a mediator. She reaches for the moon with every wedding she does and she embraces creativity with an open mind (even when my ideas didn't work out). She made the process as smooth and easy as possible and our wedding day was an absolute dream. Our guests will be raving about it for a very long time, and she helped make our dream wedding a reality. I can't fully express our gratitude in words, but thank you Marva for everything. We will recommend your services to anybody that is looking for the very best!Sent on 06/01/2015

Chic Bahamas was a Godsend for our wedding planning, logistics, and event. Chic Bahamas had the patience to help us through one postponement and helped arrange the most beautiful dress, timely Officiant, and amazing photographer among many details that made our day so very special. Her help in finding the perfect site in Exuma met Jackline and my personal dreams and hopes. Our wedding stay was full of timely productivity, yet filled with an abundant amount of non-stress time together. The wedding day was amazing and we shall never forget our experience. Marva Munroe's flexibility, professionalism, and responsiveness were beyond exceptional. The quality of service and priceless value of her services gave us a lifetime of precious memories. Thank you Chic Bahamas Weddings. Thank you Marva MunroeSent on 03/10/2015

Very pleased with the service provided. Very professional! What I appreciated most was the level of organization and the availability. Marva was always just a phone call or an email away and she responded to every email, call and request in a very timely manner.Sent on 12/18/2014

Natalia · Married on 11/15/2014
Where do I begin with my praises. I remembered the first time I spoke to you over the phone about my Wedding. You seemed just as excited as me. Your ideas for locations and decorations were spot on. No time was ever wasted, which I admire. I cannot say Thank you enough to Marva and her Team. You gave me peace with the planning, always so well organized and knowledgeable to all of the ridiculous questions I had. It is hard to keep a bunch of Latin women in order :) I learned to let go and trust you, and I didn't regret a thing. You went beyond my expectations. My beach wedding was better than what I had dreamed. If I ever encounter anyone that is thinking about having their wedding in the Bahamas, I will make sure they speak to you.Sent on 11/26/2014

Working with Marva was simply marvelous! If I could give her 10 stars I would! From the first time I spoke with her on the phone I knew that my now-husband & I were in great hands. She has treated us with nothing but the utmost kindness, understanding and professionalism throughout our whole wedding planning process. As a Bride-to-Be I had heard all the horror stories of how stressful planning a wedding could be. But I can say working with Marva made life SO much easier! All the comments I got from friends and family about how I was the calmest bride ever were all because of Marva! She was always so easy to connect with, answering all of our emails & questions promptly. I loved how she listened to what we wanted every step of the way (and made that her priority) but still offered her professional expertise to steer us in the right direction in the times we weren't sure of what we wanted. Her attention to every single small detail amazed me! One of the most common compliments we are STILL getting from our wedding guests is how every single tiny detail of the wedding weekend was carried out so meticulously and flawlessly! Our guests were treated amazingly from the moment they were met at the airport for pickup. The Welcome Party/Beach Bonfire was so much fun for my husband and I, and a huge hit with our guests!! Our beach ceremony and reception at Pelican Bay was EVERYTHING we could have dreamed of. We truly thank Marva and Chic Bahamas Weddings for making our wedding a fairytale! It makes us feel amazing when we hear so many people say we had the best wedding they had ever been to. I would recommend anyone who wants a flawless wedding without all the stress to work with Chic Bahamas Weddings! You will not regret it!Sent on 12/02/2014

Marva Munroe and her team at Chic Bahamas Weddings are amazing. I would recommend them to any bride that wants to have a stress free and amazing wedding day. Marva handled every single detail for our small beach ceremony/reception at the Grand Lucayan Resort in Freeport, Bahamas. Marva was so professional and knowledgeable she put my mind at ease. We had never been to the bahamas and were planning a wedding there, scary right? Not with Chic Bahamas Weddings. She answered all of our questions and exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you Marva for creating such a beautiful day for us and all of our guests. We had an amazing time and you made that possible!Sent on 09/15/2014

Shara · Married on 05/17/2014
Where do I begin.. Marva is amazing! I was beyond stressed a couple days before leading up to the wedding due to flight and weather issues causing us to get to our destination. But our wedding day was worth going through it all. Everything turned out beyond more than what my husband and I could have expected. I'm usually a really hands on person and I love dealing with even the littlest details of things, so when my husband and I first decided on a destination wedding.. I was skeptic about not being able to see any planning or detail before. We thought choosing the service/planner would be difficult because when we researched a couple services and called around, other planners had assistance answering their phone lines. But when we called Chic Bahamas Weddings, Marva herself answered. That meant a lot to us because when you want to plan one of he biggest days of your lives without physically being there, you want to be able to feel connected and trust someone. Marva gave us that feeling instantly so we were confident we wanted to go with Chic Bahamas Weddings. We are so glad we did!! Our reception was absolutely beautiful. I was a little worried because we had less guests (15 altogether) than we intended to have and didn't know how everything would turn out.. But it did! Everyone had so much fun and are still talking about it 'til this day. :) We will hold a special place in our hearts for Marva, she truly is amazing and just the best! She made our dream wedding come true and more. I cannot thank he enough! Thank you so much Marva and Chic Bahamas Weddings!Sent on 06/24/2014

Marva Monroe, as well as her entire team and staff at the Pelican Bay Hotel were absolutely unbelievable. All were very attentive to myself and new husband as well as all of our guests. There were two waiters that were assigned to us all week and we saw them numerous times a day. They always asked if we needed anything and helped with anything we asked. Marva and i spoke on the phone while planning our wedding numerous times. I emailed her probably more times than necessary, she always responded very quickly and answered any questions that I had. I sent pictures of the tables at the reception, flowers, aisle decor etc. Everything was EXACT. It was unbelievable. Marva Monroe, Chic Bahama Weddings and Pelican Bay Hotel made my dreams come true. It was truly not only a night, but a week to remember. I can't thank you all enough!!!!!!Sent on 07/01/2014

Marva Munroe and CHIC BAHAMAS WEDDINGS is the very best! If you have any hesitation about hosting a destination wedding on Grand Bahamas, then put your fears to rest, and chose Marva! I'm from DE, and my wedding this past April was a breeze to plan. Marva executed and delivered everything she promised and more. Our 45+ guests are STILL sharing pictures and stories, and raving about our Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding in Paradise!Because of Marva and Chic Bahamas Weddings, I was able to spend all my time with my husband, our families and our guests, and never had to worry about coordinating times, locations, cabs, etc. She truly did it all!!! She is always smiling, always puts you at ease, and ABOVE and BEYOND anything else, Marva Munroe has IMPECCABLE taste!! My wedding was classic, beachy, beautiful! And FUN! She arranged for every vendor from our photographer to our baker! As an event planner myself, I was skeptical about working with people I hadn't met, but she knows the very best vendors to work withSent on 07/08/2014
Additionally, Marva easy to reach by phone or email, and ALWAYS prompt with a response to every question. It felt like talking to your best friend/mother. Her answer to every question was "I'll handle that for you!" "I'll find out for you!" or "Yes, of course!"
She worked seamlessly our hotel/venue, Pelican Bay, ensuring everyone received the appropriate room rates. She scheduled all our transportation, worked out every detail of filing for our Marriage Certificate, and hired a wonderful, charming Officiant for our ceremony. She even recommended the fabulous resort in Exuma where we spent our honeymoon!As a wedding planner, I hold her in the highest regard, and as a person, I feel like I made a wonderful friend who has a special place in my heart. If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Simply stated, Marva Munroe and Chic Bahamas Weddings made my destination wedding dreams come true!

Rebecca · Married on 04/17/2014
Chic Bahamas Weddings met and far exceeded my expectations for my wedding! I never dreamed of having a wedding when I was a little girl, so when I knew I was going to have one I knew I wanted one where I could relax and not spend my whole year planning the tiny individual details. So what's better than having someone else arrange it in another country?? My ultimate experience was all about everyone having a nice vacation and enjoying my family and friend time with no stress about details that only I knew about, and that is exactly what I got! Marva really seemed to go above and beyond. I was worried that she specialized in resort weddings and might not be equipped for my secluded location wedding, however she rocked it. I was 30 minutes outside of Freeport, and she still made 3 trips in the week to make sure that we were 100% okay. When the wedding day came, all vendors showed up and actually seemed to care about their product. It rained in the morning, and they were all so quick to protect everything until the rain stopped. When Marva came in she was on the ball directing everything to be perfectly coordinated, between the steel pan players, the DJ, the chef, the officiant, the AMAZING photographer WilGrant, the lights, and the flowers nothing missed a beat.Sent on 05/07/2014
I know that having a wedding planner that you have never met in a country that you may or may not have ever gone to arranging your wedding is kind of frightening. ( The whole year I had a nightmare in the back of my mind that I would arrive in the Bahamas and never be able to get a hold of her) But relax, she really does have it!!! Do your job of making your pins, pick your dress, choose your location ( I recommend a private house over a public resort) and pay Chic Bahamas Weddings and you will NOT regret it!!! It was the best day of my life, and amazingly beautiful! I will never be able to say thank you enough to Marva and wish I could live the day over and over and over again.

Marva Munroe is exceptionally professional. I will recommend Chic Bahamas wedding to any bride who wants to go to sleep and have a flawlessly planned wedding. I had a destination wedding in the Bahamas and the planning was superb. I attended my wedding just like every other guest and everything went as planned. She took care of everything including my honeymoon. With her planning skills, it didn't worry me that we were miles away from each other ( I live in Nigeria, Africa). She made my dream of a beautiful, intimate wedding come true.Sent on 05/29/2014

Marva Munroe of Chic Bahamas Weddings was simply phenomenal! Our wedding was exactly what we wanted--intimate, stress free, and beautiful. We did not have to worry about a single wedding detail, and we were free to enjoy our vacation. Ms. Munroe took care of everything. She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our accommodations, which was very important to us. She also helped us with other unexpected items such as planning dinners for our guests. Overall, Ms. Munroe was the key to our wonderful vacation, and our awesome wedding ceremony. Thank you Chic Bahamas Weddings!Sent on 06/01/2014

Samantha · Married on 12/07/2013
We got married at Pelican Bay in December 2013. Marva was amazing from start to finish. We started planning our destination wedding about a year prior and Marva was always extremely prompt in her responses, either via email or over the phone. We were a bit hesitant about having a destination wedding, but Marva quickly put our minds at ease with her professionalism and extensive knowledge. Once we arrived in the Bahamas for our wedding weekend, Marva helped to make our time there worry free. For example, even though the flowers we had wanted for the groomsmen boutonnieres were not available, Marva made sure to get a flower which looked almost the same. This is the type of attentiveness that she provides to her couples. On the day of the wedding, everything was just as we had imagined, from the ceremony, to the flowers, to the food. Everything was just perfect. Marva is truly a gem and we are so happy to have worked with her for our dream wedding!Sent on 01/05/2014

Chic Bahamas Weddings is simply in a class of its own. We contacted Marva about planning our wedding only 8 weeks before the wedding date. Notwithstanding the short time frame, and the very detailed specifications that we had, she was undaunted. She listened to, and delivered on, all of our requirements. She was accessible and responsive to all of our inquiries. Her organization was meticulous. She was unfazed by our changes. Her performance was impeccable and beyond our expectations. On the day of our wedding, she not only delivered on her part of the programme but she also helped to resolve issues with other service providers where necessary. We had a wonderful wedding and we are unreservedly grateful to Marva and Chic Bahamas Weddings. Well done Marva!!!Sent on 10/26/2013

From the moment I first contacted Marva, she was the utmost professional. She provided a great deal of feedback before we had even signed a contract, and she did so promptly. I expressed to her that I simply wanted to show up and put on a dress, and she graciously and effectively handled everything else. The vendors she recommended were professional, courteous and early. The venue was more than I could have hoped for and her recommendations around the island were superb. Every meal out was fantastic thanks to her recommendations. My family who attended had only the highest marks to say about the, and even my fiance said she was exceptional and couldn't have imagined the planning with out. Most of all, my mother, who paid for the wedding and is a widow, loved the small touches and care she made throughout the process, even after the ceremony. I couldn't have imagined a better experience and would recommend her very highly. Exceptional!Sent on 06/23/2013
