Wedding on a Yacht
By Candis Reade

Ever thought of a wedding on a yacht?   Why have a boring wedding in a stuffy old building when you could have an exciting wedding close to nature.

But you are not so far removed from civilization that you can't indulge in some creature comforts.

It is your "Big Day," after all! You can get exotic settings, the wind in your hair and creature comforts with a yacht wedding.

Intimacy on Another Level:

Granted, you can't have hundreds of guests with a yacht wedding; in South Florida or anywhere. Yachts can be big, but not as big as a cruise ship. But big weddings can be big headaches.

Many couples revel in the intimacy of getting married in a small boat on a big ocean.

After all, they do call it, "taking the plunge."

Another advantage of having a yacht wedding is that it makes it much harder for anyone to crash your wedding.

Granted, you might not have to struggle with the paparazzi following your every move, but you don't want any thieves of your wedding presents or an angry ex suddenly making an appearance.

Getting married on a yacht certainly reduces those chances.

Lots Of Choices:

There are many yacht owners who will rent their beloved crafts out for your yacht wedding, South Florida or the Florida Keys. You can look them up online or ask your favourite travel agent to make the arrangements.

If you do make the arrangements yourself, you need to be sure that there is a contract between the owner and you and not just a verbal agreement.

Because having a yacht wedding in Florida is becoming such a popular choice, there are wedding services in the Miami area that will plan the whole event for you.

You can see if you can have the actual ceremony on a small island or a stretch of beach while having the reception or the honeymoon on the boat.

Plan Ahead for a Wedding on a Yacht:

Try to book your yacht rental at least six months before your wedding date. Reservations fill up fast. Yachts aren't only rented out for weddings, but also for business functions and tours.

June is not a good month to try to get a reservation because everyone else in the world is trying to a book a reservation then, too.

Also, stick to your budget. Romance and fun are the order of the day and they aren't things that can necessarily be paid for.

You'll have a lot less stress in the beginning of your marriage knowing that you can afford your wedding ceremony. There is such a wide variety of yachts available for wedding parties that you are sure to find one within your budget.

Search for Package Deals:

Many yacht services just don't offer you use of the boat. They also include things like decorations, a cake and a reception buffet.

Many professional boat rental companies are flexible enough to work with you to make your day a truly memorable one. You never know what you can get until you ask.
