I DO IN THE BAHAMAS Sixteen Canadian couples win free weddings

Posted on 07/07/2016 | About The Bahamas

Sixteen Canadian couples are set to say “I do” at wedding ceremonies taking place simultaneously in the Bahamas later this year. The spouses-to-be won the prize through an online contest aimed at promoting the Bahamas as a travel destination for weddings and honeymoons.

The simultaneous weddings at locations throughout the Bahamian islands are set for Nov. 16, at 4 p.m., local time.
The couples - seven from Ontario, five from Alberta, two from Manitoba and one each from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick - will receive round-trip airfare and accommodation in the Bahamas, plus a “personal wedding co-ordinator.”
The Ministry of Tourism in the Bahamas ran the same contest in the UK and the US in previous years. Paul Strachan, the senior director at the Bahamas Tourist Office in Canada, said about 350 couples entered the contest.
