Anne Marie really made our special day PERFECT! TBH, I was a little nervous about working with someone I had never met in person before for something so important, but all those nerves quickly melted away after we began to put all the details together. Before booking I reached out to other brides on her FB and IG pages and everyone I spoke to gave Weddings In the Bahamas EXCELLENT reviews. I now see why! Anne Marie was extremely responsive and worked around my busy work schedule. I even had some last minute changes and she was super flexible with the requests. If you are reading this and wondering if she is the right planner for you, LOOK NO FURTHER! Thank you again, Anne Marie and the whole Weddings in the Bahamas team!! -Mikki & Chris
We recently got married on May 9, 2018 at the Riu Paradise Island Hotel . I am not sure I can even find words to describe how effortless Anne Marie made this entire process. She is truly a dream come true. I never considered myself the type of person that would ever use a wedding planner...But when you get married outside of the United States, it becomes a necessity, just to uncomplicate your life. From the first point of contact, she and her assistant were on top of it ! They kept in touch with us on a regular basis, and were more than willing to answer any questions we had, and I had a lot ! She made sure Gary and I were ready and reminded us what documents we needed to bring. She met us at the hotel and even entertained my non wedding questions about the island. I was so nervous to allow someone else to "take the reins" so to speak, mostly due to my type A personality, and with her at the helm, I was immediately put at ease. My flowers were stunning and looked exactly like the pictures that she gave me to choose from. The photographer she brought was amazing and fun, and extremely competent. The minister she chose was warm and funny and we truly enjoyed the ceremony. I am not sure I will ever find enough adjectives to describe how lucky we were to find her. If you are considering a destination wedding, no matter the size..look no further than Anne Marie Williams. There is no one better or more qualified to make your special day exactly that..A day you will never forget and cherish forever. Our pictures aren't back yet, but I wanted to get this posted ...Thanks again Anne Marie ! You will forever be in our hearts. Ann and Gary Mathews
Anne Marie helped me put together a wedding that was out of a movie! She was there every step of the way from emails and phone calls to the day of. She made my wedding day stress free and 100% enjoyable! I did not have to worry about a single thing. The venue at Compass Point in Nassau was beautiful in itself and Anne Marie made it that much better from the beautiful decorations down to every last detail about what songs the instrumentalist would play for us. Anne Marie truly cares about the people she works with and puts her heart in everything she does!! I couldn’t be more thankful that Anita from Compass Point Resort gave me Anne Marie’s contact information from Weddings in the Bahamas. The planning was as easy as can be and if I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing! All my guest were also impressed with how beautiful and smooth the wedding went especially with planning the entire event from different countries! We love Anne Marie!!!
Anne Marie is the fairy godmother to my Cinderella experience! From the first phone call the follow up call a week after the wedding you can hear the passion in her voice! Anne Marie made it very easy to feel at ease that my wedding was going to be a once in a life time event. I am the type of bride that wanted every detail planned and she took no stops at giving me exactly what i dreamt of. Every bride "Pins" their dream wedding with Anne Marie's help i got to experience it! If you are on the fence about having a Bahamas Wedding... Dont think twice! Call Her! You wont regret it!
Anne Marie helped me plan a wedding for my daughter on December 16th and it was absolutely magical! There are no words to describe how much this amazing woman did for us. She is one of the most dedicated and professional people that I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with and I’m so thankful we hired her. She knows absolutely everyone on both islands, Nassau and Paradise Island, and our decision to take her advice to have the reception at Luciano’s was one of the best decisions of our entire event. We had the wedding at the Cloisters, which was beyond beautiful, and then went to Luciano’s for the reception. Her recommendation for the wedding cake, The Swiss Pastry Shop, was also one of our best decisions. She also hired a Calypso band for the reception that was the highlight of our reception, along with the DJ, who was amazing. After months of planning, with Anne Marie constantly keeping us on track with the planning process, the wedding went off without a hitch and it was so much fun that we would all love to relive the experience. Anne Marie drove us around to meet vendors when we took an earlier trip for planning purposes and she never missed a step along the way in making sure that every single detail was taken care of. She is a meticulous person and her 25 years of experience only adds to her value as a wedding planner. She worked really hard to make sure that everything went the way my daughter dreamed it would and she was always happy to adapt to our ideas and to do her best to make those ideas work out. We were beyond thrilled with the whole experience and if you are looking for someone who will go above and beyond to make your dream wedding come true, at a very reasonable price, look no further than Anne Marie Williams!
My husband & I recently had our wedding in the Bahamas this past November. We took 62 guests with us on a cruise for a week & tied the knot at the Cloisters on Paradise Island. Then we had our reception at Luciano's of Chicago in Nassau. We hired Anne Marie as our wedding planner & coordinator & I am so thankful we did! Anne Marie was wonderful & the SWEETEST (I SWEAR)! She was super flexible & patient with me given I work night shifts (7PM-7AM). She accommodated to my schedule & called me later in the afternoon because she knew I was sleeping in the morning due to my work schedule. She even went out of her way to call me on Sat & Sun on our days off. I really did feel bad because I wanted to accommodate to her work hours too! Anne Marie made sure everything was perfect. Our wedding was soo much more magical & beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I truly wish I could relive that moment in my life. My family & close friends couldn't stop complimenting about how amazing Anne Marie was & how beautiful the entire wedding was. She took care of all of my problems before I even knew it was a problem.The scenery was breathtaking & the food was delicious! We had our ceremony at 3PM & our reception at 5PM. Our guests were able to dine outside by the waterfront facing Paradise Island..& watched the sunset prior to enjoying a lovely intimate candlelight dinner together. Honestly, I could not have asked for more. If you want a wedding planner, choose Anne Marie. You won't regret it.
Thank you so very much for your kind review. I truly wanted your wedding to be absolutely PERFECT! I want you to trust me because I knew I was going to give you 100% and more! I will always remember you & Robert & your beautiful wedding. Enjoy life to the fullest together! With love and warm wishes always, Anne Marie
Anne Marie is hands down the most professional, caring, thorough, meticulous coordinator I have experienced. When she says that she has everything under control she means it. She was with us every step of the way and everyone in my wedding party and guests could not stop giving compliments on the awesome job she's done. She has allowed me and my husband and new family to have memories that will last a lifetime!

Although it rained the morning of our wedding, they waited for the rain to stop and the service was perfect!!! If I could rate Wedding in the Bahamas a 10 I would!!!!
Anne Marie was awesome. She made our wedding day the most perfect day imaginable!
Hi Thea, Thank you so much for your review. Compass Point was the perfect venue for your wedding. Wishing you and Doug forever happiness. With warm wishes, Anne Marie
If you are planning a wedding in the Bahamas you need to use Anne Marie Williams. She is by far the best wedding planner there. Always there to answer any questions months before the wedding and on top of everything the day of the wedding.
Thank you so much for your review. It was great working with you. I know you wanted everything to be absolutely beautiful for your daughter's wedding. We both did! I am so happy that Tiffany and Brandon loved everything detail of their wedding.
Hope to see you again,
With love and warm regards to you all,
Anne Marie was phenomenal! Everything was perfect. My husband and I with 18 of our family and friends cruised to the Bahamas for a destination wedding! Anne Marie arranged everything! From transportation to and from port to the beautiful Poop Deck, the officiant, the flowers, the photographer, and arranging all the paperwork, she didn't miss a beat! We selected one of the cheaper packages and we're still treated like her number one priority! She waited on us hand and foot! She was so friendly and helpful and always available! I highly recommend her services. Stressful and absolutely perfect. The beach was indescribably beautiful!
Thank you so very much for kind review. What a beautiful family you have! It was a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. I will keep my promise and send you some sand from the beach at The Poop Deck.
Wishing you and Branden forever happiness,
Thanks for finding me!
Our special day was absolutely PERFECT!! Anne Marie took care of every detail from start to finish. She was ALWAYS available to speak with and ALWAYS responsive. She is very detail-oriented and didn't want me to worry about a thing! She planned our wedding and we never went to the Bahamas until we said I do!!! YES IMAGINE THAT! That's how good and thorough she is! If you are planning your wedding in the Bahamas Anne Marie IS THE VERY BEST PERSON to coordinate your special day! THANK YOU ANNE MARIE for making our day spectacular!!

Thank you so much for your kind review Lisa. I told you I would take care of you and your wedding would be beautiful! Please keep in touch! With love and warm wishes always, Anne Marie
I would book with Weddings in the Bahamas over and over if I could. From the moment I hung up from our initial phone conversation until my last hour as we danced the night away, my heart was filled with joy. You did an amazing job better than I could have imagined. You made our day special and I am forever thankful. I will recommend Weddings in the Bahamas as much as I could.
Thank you so much for your review. I am delighted that you were pleased with every detail. I loved watching everyone having so much fun and it's great when you can relax and enjoy your own wedding!
With warm wishes always,
I CAN'T THANK ANNE MARIE ENOUGH FOR ALL SHE HAS DONE TO INSURE THAT CORY AND I HAD A WONDERFUL WEDDING. THIS IS A DAY THAT WE WILL NEVER FORGET AND YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE. ALL OF OUR GUESTS LOVED THE LOCATION AND THEBAHAMIAN HOSPITALITY. I WOULD RECOMMEND HER OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!
What I love about my job is making a bride happy! There is so much satisfaction in doing that. Thank you very much for your review. Hope to see you again.
With warm regards,
Our wedding was this past month (July). I found Anne Marie through wedding wire and after reading the reviews we decided to call her. I'm usually the event coordinator for our family and church events but this time I said I was NOT going to stress. So happy I decided to go down that route. We started to plan our wedding a year and a half ago. From the first phone call she was my top choice. Shortly after our conversation she began to follow up with me and ask me what our vision was. She was prompt at responding all our e-mails and phone calls when she was not available. We arrived to Nassau via a cruise and everything went smoothly and as planned even the weather It was very cloudy but we were lucky it didn't rain. Our wedding was beautiful the venue, the food, the drinks just perfect. Our guests do not stop talking about our memorable wedding and how great the food and venue were. Totally pleased with all the vendors she recommended. Ann Marie and everyone we worked with were top notch and very efficient and professional at all times. She assisted us with transportation, a saxophonist, steel pan player, cake, photographer, flowers and venue. It truly was the best day ever. I am happy we hired her and I did not go crazy trying to do all the planning on my own being that I'm not from the Bahamas. She made it easy. Ann Marie thank you for making it look so easy and for keeping me calm and making our vision come true. We are definitely going to reach out to you next time we are in the Bahamas because we now consider you as a friend.
I remember telling you from the very beginning we will not let you down and your wedding will be everything you want it to be and more! We truly believe in making 'Wedding dreams come true!. Thank you for your kind review and I am delighted you were so happy with everything.
From your wedding planner and now friend!
My wedding experience was a dream come true. I planned our wedding with Anne Marie Williams for over a year. She maintain communication with me through out all the planning. Making it possible for me to feel stress free. We traveled to the Bahamas via cruise.... On our wedding day everything went smooth. Our wedding location Compass Point Beach Resort was breathtaking. The staff there treated us like royalty. The food and service was amazing. The attention to detail and professionalism was superb.
Hi Maggie, What a pleasure to finally meet you after working together for over a year. Thank you so much for your review. We have to meet up again. You, Fermin and me and have lunch, here in Nassau. Loved your wedding!
Please keep in touch!
Words can not express the gratitude I have for Anne Marie. She helped us plan our beautiful wedding in the Bahamas. I would not have been able to achieve a stress-free wedding if I chose to do it myself! Anne Marie will guide you every step of the way. She has a wonderful selection of all the necessities for a wedding! Thank you so much Anne Marie for literally making our dream wedding come true Love, The Chendra's
It was a pleasure for me to be a part of planning your special wedding day. Thank you. Lots of love to you and your family. Hope to see you again.
Anne Marie made our dream wedding a reality. I saw many pictures of what I wanted. I described it to Anne Marie and provided her with our colors. I knew what the wedding decor would look like, but I was shocked when I walked into the reception!!! It was exactly what I had pictured in my mind!!
Anne Marie is the BEST wedding planner in the Bahamas!!
To My New Friend Britt,
Thank you very much for your review. I wanted you to be so happy with every detail. I am delighted I had the opportunity to meet you and Cyrus and coordinate your wedding. Can't wait to see you both again next year.
With love and warm wishes,
Oh my goodness, I don't know where to start with Anne Marie!!! I am SOOO incredibly happy with the way my wedding turned out. To say that she was so amazing is a total understatement. All of the photos that I have ever seen on Pinterest or any other website, they were NOT EVEN CLOSE to being as amazing as my wedding was, all thanks to her planning. My wedding arbor, SO PERFECT and better than all of the photos I sent her, my bouquet was way better than the photo I showed her too, so were my flowers on the wedding arbor and the fabric, oh my, the most perfect color. She has made my dream wedding come true and has made it even better than I expected. I will forever remember this as the best and most perfect day of my life. We absolutely loved her!!! Thank you so much, Anne Marie!!!!!
And to add to this, her photographer, Disha, is incredible too. So professional, nice, tells you how to pose to get the best photos. Absolutely loved her too!
You knew exactly what you wanted and I had to make all your dreams a reality. I did it! Thank you so much for your kind review and praise. I really appreciate it. I am so happy that I exceeded your expectations.
With love and warm wishes always,
Anne Marie is such a sweetheart! She is very easy to work with, responsive, and accommodating. Anne Marie took care of everything and provided all the details so we knew what to expect. She exceeded our expectation and went beyond to ensure smoothness! After seeing my friends stress about their weddings I am thoroughly happy I have chosen the best wedding planner in the Bahamas. This was a destination wedding with no stress. Definitely worth an extra trip to go over details with Anne Marie and to check out the venue. She is great over the phone and through emails but she is worth the extra trip just to meet her. Her smile and friendliness will put you at ease with your wedding. She takes care of everything, all you have to do is just ask. She offers some of the best and most affordable packages in Nassau. I highly recommend her as THE wedding planner in Nassau, Bahamas.
We are from Las Vegas, Nv. We decided to have a destination wedding to start our new journey in a place we seen as paradise. With a group slightly under 40, we traveled to Miami and boarded the Norwegian Sky Cruise. Ann Marie allowed us to feel comfortable making major decisions without being able to actually be on the island. We got married in Nassau, Bahamas on the Compass Point Resort Pier, it was a dream come true. Ann Marie was available 100% before, during, and even after was the last face we seen before leaving in our limo. Her attention to detail, expertise, and professionalism made sure every plausible thing was accounted for. She was interactive and asked me questions I didn't even know I needed to ask. She even kept my husband updated and made sure the both of us would be happy with everything! She never rushed us off the phone and always responded back quickly to emails, sending photos, contacting the resort etc. I would highly suggest going through Weddings in the Bahamas especially vs going though a cruise line or another cordinator. She takes pride in her work and the outcomes show! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding, our entire family even jumped in the ocean out of pure joy of the most beautiful wedding and our union! Ann Marie felt like family after working with her for close to a year. We love you and many blessings to you from the bottom of our hearts!
When I 1st got engaged we knew we wanted a destination wedding. We knew we wanted to travel on a cruise and get married at one of the stops but had no idea where to start. I began by contacting carnival cruise lines and some local hotels and got nowhere. I began to get discouraged, this was supposed to be one of the most exciting times in our lives and I felt lost. I ran across the wedding wire website and at last I was off and running. I found Anne Marie Weddings in the Bahamas. From the moment I contacted her she put me at ease. I also reached out to a couple other brides on Facebook that hired her in the past and they had rave reviews. During the whole planning process she always responded timely. She was very professional and flexible too. There are so many vendor’s out there that just don’t allow you to tweak their packages to fit what you may want or need. Weddings are not a “one size fits all”. Anne Marie let us modify her package so we could have our dream wedding. As far as the day of….the location breathtaking, food amazing our guests went on and on, the pastor was refreshing and entertaining and the dj on point!!! One of our modifications was we used our own photographer Chaz Slater w/ Slater Photography Anne Marie didn’t miss a beat when it came to working with Chaz and getting all the photo opps needed. The day of the wedding was the first time actually meeting Anne Marie in person…she was warm and felt like an old friend. Without a doubt we will be back to renew our vows in the future.
I was VERY skeptical about planning my wedding out of the country with a wedding planner who I was not able to see on a regular but Anne Marie Williams DID NOT skip a beat when helping me plan my dream wedding! She made my every wish for my wedding come true! I talked to her for almost 2 years and every time we talked she was so pleasant to talk to on the phone! It truly felt like we were family! I absolutely had no worries when it came to my wedding and reception she kept me informed with EVERYTHING! She was there to greet us when we made it to our wedding location, she met us at our reception location and stayed with us the ENTIRE time until it was time to go! The single women in my family can't wait to get married so that Anne can be there wedding planner! Hahaha!!! I can't wait to renew my vows so I can call Mrs. Anne Marie Williams again! Thank you soooo much for making our wedding one of the best memories of our life!!!!

Thanks to Anne Marie and her team our wedding was nothing short of what we dreamed of, exceeding every expectation! Our initial thought included a semi-stressful lead up to the wedding day as we would be planning all details from NY without being able to visit before hand. . .boy were we wrong! Anne Marie assured us from the second we took her 1st call, she could handle any and all requests by phone or email completely stress free. Not only was she able to cater to our every request and personalized every detail to our liking, she did so, responding swiftly at all hours of the day! She delivered such a beautiful ceremony by the beach and a delightful reception, with us every step of the way. Her vendors are incredible! From the food & cake to the photographer & officiant, we were beyond pleased. Our reception was held at the Poop Deck patio where Anne Marie customized seating arrangements to our liking and the food was absolutely delicious! The ceremony decor melted the hearts of our family & friends who can't stop speaking of how wonderful our wedding and Anne Marie was! In just a couple of months & on an unbelievable budget, Anne Marie & her team executed such wonderful memories that we will hold I'm our hearts forever. My husband and I cannot thank you all enough!
