Maritime Marriages

Cruise weddings have been becoming more popular these days because of how exciting and jam-packed they have the potential to be. Whether you’re inviting friends and family to join you on your special day at sea, or taking some private cruise time with just your partner, a ship is a great option for tying the knot!

  • Cruise weddings give you many different romance package option that you and your significant other can choose from
  • Inviting friends and family to celebrate with you gives you time to spend with them by doing many fun activities before and after the big day
  • A cruise wedding easily transitions into a honeymoon for you and your partner
  • You can choose to get married on a ship, or dock and get married at one of the many port locations that the cruise line has to offer
  • The wedding packages help you save money
  • You can easily customize your itinerary
  • Venues, catering, video, photography, and any of the other hassles that come with planning a wedding are already on the ship for you.

Having a wedding on a cruise takes the guess work out of planning, scheduling, and making arrangements (that you hope don’t fall through at the last minute) because every detail is pre-booked before you even get on the ship. It is a smart option for any couple looking to associate a lot fun and excitement around the day of their wedding. This option saves you a boat load of money and ensures some beautiful memories along the way as well.

There’s No Place Like Home

The chore of picking wedding venues can often times be tricky and overly-expensive. Sometimes you find that perfect romantic location and then you find out it’s booked for months or that the dates available don’t match up to your desired dates. To ensure that these disappointing situations don’t occur when planning your wedding, why not look a little closer to home? Intimate or large, fancy or casual, a backyard wedding is a fool-proof idea for both a wedding and/or reception. Here are some reasons why a backdrop of a beautiful yard setting is the way to go:

  • You can save so much money by using your yard or a friend/family’s yard for your wedding venue
  •  You’re in total control of your environment.
  •  You can make it as formal or laid back as you desire.
  •  Everyone feels more comfortable letting loose in a private setting.
  •  Outside weddings in general make for beautiful pictures because you have the natural elements that are associated with being out in nature.
  •  The chance of inclement weather can be solved by using a giant tent for you and your guests.

The seasons of spring, summer, and early fall are ideal for a backyard wedding, so if you’re into saving money–if you’re inner DIY personality is just itching to come out and if you’d enjoy a more closed-off and intimate location to celebrate with your friends and family–sometimes you don’t have to look far for the best locations.
