Everything You Need to Know About Boat Weddings
When you are planning your perfect wedding on the water, you want to first stop and try to envision exactly what you are looking for in your wedding yacht experience.

Send out the wedding invitations and gather your closest friends and family for a fun wedding on the water in Florida with Charter One. Our wedding coordinators will give you plenty to consider when planning your wedding day, but we will take on the stress for you, helping you plan and execute the perfect wedding ceremony on a private yacht. The following are some tips for planning your wedding on a yacht charter:
Tip #1 Finding the Right Size Boat
Boat wedding venues can be limited in size and the amount of guests you can have on board, and if you do not choose a big enough ship, you may need to cull the wedding guest list which may result in hurt feelings. At Charter One, the most popular of our luxury yachts is the Summer Wind, a vessel with room for 50 guests, allowing you to host an intimate celebration with your closest family members and friends. Planning your wedding with that number of guests in mind will make it easier to create a menu, order wedding favors and take care of other considerations.
Tip #2 Have A Budget in Mind
A yacht wedding can be anything from a big budget dream wedding to one of the small and intimate elopement weddings that are so popular now. You may wish to incorporate wedding traditions, have photo booths onboard, give out bridesmaid and groomsman gifts, or have live entertainment on board to serenade you and your guests as you dance the night away.
Luxury yachts may not come to mind when you are thinking of affordable ideas for your wedding, but at Charter One we have all-inclusive wedding packages that include everything from wedding planner services to fuel to waitstaff, and much more, so your boat wedding won’t break the bank.
