6 Great Reasons to Get Married on a Wedding Cruise
You’re getting married! But instead of basking in the happiness of the moment and the excitement of your Big Day, you’re stressed out over the what, where and when of how it will all come together. Many bridal couples are looking to wedding cruises for a novel, romantic and exciting way to exchange their vows in the presence of their loved ones.
Tying the knot on a cruise gives you so many options, including limitless venue choices, or even a moving venue. If this is not enough, let’s take a look at some more reasons to help you make an informed decision.
#1 It’s Cheaper Than You’d Think
Wedding cruises are far less expensive than what one might think, compared to a traditional wedding, and the sky’s the limit, literally. You will be able to create a rather extravagant event for far less than the national average for weddings these days.
#2 It’s a 2-in-1 Deal
You have your wedding venue and reception all in one place. After saying your vows with the vast ocean as your backdrop, you and your guests move directly to the reception venue after the nuptials.
#3 You Don’t Have to Plan as Much
Planning any type of wedding is a stressful endeavour today. But when you plan your wedding on a ship, a lot of the hassle falls away, especially if you partner with a cruise company that is seasoned in pulling off beautiful, memorable weddings.
#4 Professionals Help You Plan It
As any bride knows, a lot goes into planning and pulling off a wedding. From the cake to the photographer, and not to forget the venue and location. So why not benefit from some professional help, at no extra charge? When you book a wedding cruise, all of this is seen to in the package, and a lot of the stress of planning a wedding is removed from your plate.
#5 You Can Customise It
You don’t have to settle for a one-size-fits-all wedding package. There are hundreds of ways in which you can customise and personalise a wedding cruise to reflect your dream for your Big Day and stay true to your vision.
#6 You Can Get Married On Board
Nautical nuptials aboard a cruise ship can be rather romantic. If all of your family and friends can’t be with you on the Big Day, you can have the entire ceremony streamed and broadcasted live using state-of-the-art technology to include loved ones from around the world in your beautiful day.
