One In A Millionaire

Couple to Get Secluded Nuptials in Bahamas Luxury

16 Weddings, 16 Islands, One Priceless Day

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - March 24, 2014) - A lucky couple will be treated like royalty early in the new year after winning a dream wedding in the Berry Islands, The Bahamas, which is touted as a haven for champagne wishes and caviar dreams.

The couple will be among a total of 16 couples who will be named winners of The Islands Of The Bahamas' 16 Islands Wedding Invitation. The major promotional initiative launched February 14, invites couples throughout the continental United States to enter to win one of 16 dream weddings. Each wedding will take place on a different island of The Bahamas on January 16, 2015 at 16:00.

The Berry Islands, one of the couples' Bahamas destinations, are commonly referred to as having more millionaires per square mile than most places on Earth. One large Bahamas real estate company boasts of the Hollywood royalty that have been lured to the islands over the years.

"It's said that Cary Grant danced the night away in the clubhouse of Great Harbour Cay (Berry Islands) and Brigitte Bardot loved the beaches," according to ColdwellBankerBahamas.com.

Located 150 miles east of Miami, the Berries are a chain of islands and cays that cover about 30 square miles. The total landmass is just over 12 square miles, and the Berry Islands have approximately 700 residents.

The population increases seasonally as travellers visit from all over the world and high net worth individuals and families retreat to the Berries as a winter haven. Seclusion and privacy make the Berry Islands the perfect choice for a dream wedding and the Carriearl Boutique Hotel has partnered with TIOTB to accommodate the lucky couple that wins a dream wedding on that island.

The winning couples will be provided with air travel, accommodations and meals, the wedding rings, bridal gowns, tuxedos, wedding ceremony, cake and reception.
