Can you get married on a boat? The short answer is yes! One of the best wedding venues is yacht weddings. You can plan the entire event aboard the yacht. Having the ceremony onboard and yacht wedding reception saves you money. Money you’ll need later on. Sure you want a beautiful wedding, but it pays to be frugal, especially in the beginning.
Yacht weddings are the perfect solution for any couple who loves being in the open air. Join guests on the top level for nuptials. Next enjoy a mouth-watering meal, followed by champagne toasts and island-inspired cocktails on the level below.
You can purchase all-inclusive yacht wedding packages if you want. This means everything you desire, whether it’s over-the-top and flashy or calm and casual, it’s included in the price you get from the wedding planner. We don’t leave anything out.
We include the cake, linens, bartender, entertainment, sound system and even the seashells and driftwood. Of course, the captain can officiate the ceremony with no problem. Your job and the job of your guests is to show up.
What Does a Yacht Wedding Cost?
So, how much does it cost to rent a yacht for a wedding? It’s affordable. To have a wedding on a Saturday, between May and October, it would run a couple around $5,000 for a party of 40 guests. It averages out to be around $130 per person. You may not know that you can rent only specific spaces on the yacht or the whole thing. If you’re planning a boat wedding, we suggest you go all the way. You can save on some things such as boat wedding decorations, however.
