Say Yes In The Bahamas

The Bahamas, one of the world's leading destinations for weddings and honeymoons, is gearing up to launch its newest romance competition "Say Yes in The Bahamas" Wedding Proposal.

The unique social media competition is a joint initiative created by the Romance Department of The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation (MOTA) in conjunction with Paparazzi Proposal, to showcase the ultimate wedding proposals offered in the destination. Online registration for #sayyesinthebahamas commenced on October 30, 2017 and ends on December 15, 2017.

The six-week, interactive social media contest is open to couples who are already in a relationship and reside within the United States. Entrants will be required to upload on or Facebook, a photo of the couple along with a 100-word story on why they hope to have their surprise-wedding proposal take place in the pristine islands of The Bahamas.

Four lucky couples will be selected by a panel of qualified judges and flown into The Bahamas to experience their dream wedding proposal in any of four amazing Islands in The Bahamas:  Abaco, Exuma, Nassau and Paradise Island.

"We are excited about the opportunity of sharing our romantic destination with these couples while highlighting the wide array of wedding programs available within our diverse and beautiful country," said Freda Malcolm, Director of Romance at MOTA. "'Say Yes in The Bahamas' wedding proposals will be a truly remarkable and unforgettable experience for the winning couples."  

Winning couples will be announced just in time for Christmas, and couples will be expected to travel to The Bahamas in January 2018, where they will enjoy luxurious accommodations for four days three nights, in one of the top resorts in The Bahamas.  Each couple will also receive an intimate, romantic dinner for two, all compliments of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation.

The Islands Of The Bahamas have received numerous nominations and awards from the Romance sector, including being named the World's Leading Wedding Destination in 2015.

In 2012, 2015 and 2016 the MOTA also held three successful social media competitions respectively in England, the USA and Canada, for its "16 Weddings, 16 Islands, One Priceless Day" event.  The contest, which attracted thousands of applicants vying to win a wedding ceremony in The Bahamas resulted in 16 couples getting married on 16 different islands in the Bahamas, at precisely the same day at precisely the same time.
