You’re engaged! Congratulations! Now it’s time to plan a wedding that is every bit as romantic as the proposal, if not more. A wedding is supposed to be one of the happiest events of your life, but the months leading up to it can also be one of the most stressful time of your life. Once you have set a date for your wedding the preparations begin. Where do you start? Budget. Creating a budget early on avoids unnecessary heartache and headache. After you decide on a budget, you have two options going forward. You can do everything on your own, taking care of every detail, coordinating with the florist, the caterer, the venue manager, the transportation company, the wedding band, the decorator, etc. or you can have your wedding on a luxurious yacht and let us take care of the rest in beautiful South Florida! We will plan a South Florida yacht wedding that you and your guests will never forget! Charter One Yacht’s professional event planners work with Florida’s top rental and floral providers. We can collaborate with these companies to exceed your expectations and make your wedding day as memorable as it should be. When you allow us to take care of you, the only thing you are responsible for is making the requests. You tell us what you want and it is not only our job to deliver, but also our pleasure. These are the things we will need to know: The Location– Choose one of our luxury yachts for the perfect setting on your special day. The Floridian Princess features two sprawling decks, which can be used for the ceremony and/or reception. With this yacht, your guest list can go up to 350+ people. Aboard this ship is also the “ultimate yacht bar” with staff prepared to serve drinks keeping you and your guests very happy all through the night. The Summer Wind, our smaller yacht, is the perfect vessel to achieve intimacy and also exclusivity. Accommodating up to 65 guests, this yacht exudes elegance and grace. This is the perfect yacht for a ceremony and reception with close family and friends. No matter which yacht you choose, docking stations all along the coast of South Florida as far north as Riviera and as far south as Key Largo allow you to choose what part of the South Florida coast will be the backdrop to your vows. Theme and Décor– The theme of your wedding decor will reflect you and your spouse so we do our utmost to meet all of your requests making the day that much more personal for you. We have a variety of Florida wedding themes to choose from, but are also happy to help build your own personal wedding theme. We can customize and coordinate floral arrangements, decorations, centerpieces, ect. This is your special day and rest assured our event planners take it as seriously as you do. Entertainment– Music creates the pulse of an event so the choice of entertainment is also extremely important. Whether you want your guests dancing the night away to quality music performed by a live band or to great tunes played by a local DJ, we can make it happen. No need to listen to countless band and DJ auditions! The Menu– Dinner and beverages can be a nightmare to coordinate by yourself, but Charter One provides you with three core yacht menus – The Riviera, The Key West and The Pacific. When creating your menu you can choose from a wide selection of h’orderves, salads, entrees, side dishes, and desserts. We are happy to accommodate special requests for cultural reasons and also provide vegetarian options. You can also select one of our themed menus if you so desire. Our beverage selection includes soft drinks, juices, champagne, wine and cocktails. In deciding all of these things, Charter One is determined to respect your budget and the cost of our all-inclusive package will be significantly lower than the expense you would incur if you had to coordinate with multiple providers for various services. Once you have made it absolutely clear what you want, you can sit back and relax in giddy excitement, counting down the days to your wedding. You can expect updates, but Charter One will never overwhelm you. Whether you’ve been dreaming about it your entire life, or you only started thinking about it once you got engaged, we are prepared to do everything in our power to make your South Florida dream yacht wedding a reality.
