In May of 2012, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism launched a spectacular Internet campaign to promote the Bahamas as a premier location for destination weddings. The campaign was titled "The Bahamas 16 Island Wedding Invitation". It began via social media and targeted also couples in the United Kingdom to enter a competition to win a full wedding package in The Bahamas. The package included wedding dress, rings and plane tickets to The Bahamas. The lucky 16 winners were all married on 16 different Bahamian Islands. The Grand Lucayan also took park in this promotion.
