Bermuda requires that you have adequate unused pages in your passport. All travelers will need a passport valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from Bermuda. However, Bermuda government strongly recommends traveling with six months of validity on your passport at all times.
Bermuda is a self-governing British overseas territory in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is an archipelago of 7 main islands and about 170 additional (named) islets and rocks, situated about 650 miles east of Cape Hatteras | North Carolina. Note Bermuda is on Atlantic time, one hour in advance of EST.
Bermuda is known for some very notable customs and creations! Bermuda shorts define true island style, being the fashion of dress for Bermudian men, both business and casual. The flavors of the island include the famous Rum Swizzle and the Dark and Stormy! Bermuda slang, known as Bermy includes Onion, (born and bred Bermudian), Black (short for Bermuda Goslings black seal rum), The Rock (local’s name for Bermuda), Greeze, a big meal typically (and equally famous must try), Bermuda fish sandwich and my personal favorite Ace Girl/Ace Boy – aka Bermudian BFF.
Equally if not the most notable, Mark Twain loved to visit Bermuda and can be quoted as saying many a time, “You can go to Heaven if you want, I’d rather go to Bermuda!”
One of the most recognizable structures with a time honored tradition is the Bermuda Moongate. It is a beautiful formed full circle structure that brings wishes of good luck, love and happiness to all that pass through it! Make a wish on your own or with a loved one! This is one of my favorites at Gibbons Gardens, it is actually a garden tunnel so many wishes to make walking through.
Bermuda has no rainy season. Showers may come and go, but the skies usually clear quickly and the weather doesn’t typically get in the way of outdoor activities and fun! Summer temperatures last from May to mid-November, the warmest weather in Bermuda occurs in July, August and September. The temperature rarely rises above 85ºF. There is nearly always a balmy breeze at night.
Hamilton Princess and Beach Club
76 Pitts Bay Road
Bermuda gained international recognition when Princess Louise, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, visited for a winter retreat and called it “a place of eternal spring” Thus the hotel was named The Princess for Princess Louise. From the moment it opened, the now named Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club was considered the gem of the island of Bermuda and still remains to be to this day! A #1 hotel for travelers, located majestically on the beautiful harbour and within 5 minute walk to the city center, the convenience is limitless. It remains and always will be The Pink Palace
So beautifully situated on Hamilton Harbour (British spelling) guests are assured to have a fabulous view from sunrise to sunset and well into the evening. The sunsets are breathtaking and the twinkling lights of the land that surrounds the harbor are magical!
Since the hotel is not located right on the beach, do not worry, their private beach club, a short ride in their complimentary transportation, transforms you from the urban feel to the gorgeous Bermuda beach environment that is unique in luxury and impeccable in location!

ALTERNATE ACCOMMODATIONS REQUEST
Please make any request for alternate accommodation to me via email. Please include your exact dates of travel, number of guests and what your approximate budget is for your nightly rate. I am happy to assist however please do keep in mind when considering a stay at an alternate hotel, Bermuda taxi services are government controlled but can still be expensive. Additionally, staying at an alternate hotel and then having to incur taxi costs will cut into your savings. Most importantly, please be aware that though the public areas at the host hotel, Hamilton Princess and beach Club are available to all who visit the hotel, the pools, beach and health club are exclusive to hotel guests only. A true destination wedding experience, spending time with the wedding couple, family and friends may not be fully realized when choosing to stay away from their host hotel. Also when staying at the host hotel, this is where the wedding will be, the convenience of being right on property during the wedding event is a great benefit. Allow me to help you plan accordingly so that you may enjoy all the wonderful experiences within your time frame and budget allowance.
All major airlines fly into Bermuda either non stop from Eastern seaboard gateways or via connection.
Please email me your dates of travel and airport of departure for applicable flight schedules and fares. It is suggested that you then book your flights direct on the applicable airline website, however I am here to assist with any booking on the site as needed. Please ensure that your name on your ticket matches your passport exactly to avoid any travel delays at airport or on entry to Bermuda. Most airlines also have waived their rebooking penalty so please be sure to check their policy when booking your flights just in case your plans/dates may change.
AIRPORT – LF Wade International Airport
Located approximately 20 minutes from Hamilton Princess. Bermuda is in the process of finalizing their building of a brand new airport, slated to be opening early 2021.
The new airport terminal will be a state-of-the-art facility. It will be accessible to all passengers, including features such as covered passenger boarding bridges, and to provide the comfort that travellers have come to expect with more room and modern lounges. There will be improved concessions, restaurants and duty-free offerings as well as views of Bermuda’s beautiful water for passengers to enjoy.
Pre-clearance for US departures will remain and security screening and immigration will be streamlined and modernized for a more efficient check-in and arrivals. Global entry kiosks will be available to travelers with this status. Please be sure to arrive at the airport two hours or more ahead of your departure flight time. Remember you must check in, clear US customs and immigrations, check luggage, pass through security and then check out the duty free shops! Do not delay your arrival time at the airport if your are made aware that your flight is delayed. Delays are not fun, neither is long delays at airport, however airline check ins are timed by the scheduled flight time since this is an airport with limited departures.
Perhaps you never take it when you travel, and maybe just don’t want the added expense, however unforeseen situations do happen! It is better to have it and not need it than to not have it and wish you did! Please inquire with me via email on travel insurance costs once your hotel and flights are booked. I am happy to choose the best plan! Take a look at what is covered.
I am so very excited to help you plan your trip, book your accommodations, provide advice, make recommendations on activities and dining and to make this a special time for you to enjoy while you celebrate Christina and Michael! As time gets closer to travel, you will receive emails from me with things to do, travel info, group info and requests for your flight info.
