Other elements that can be included in your décor include driftwood accents and glass. This type of boat wedding idea allows your guests to enjoy all of the pleasures of the beach while being on a modernized, breathtaking yacht full of every amenity one can imagine!

This truly romantic wedding theme will transport your guests into a romantic, fanciful paradise. Décor can include tree-like elements, lace, candles, branches and floral hues. Top this theme off by holding your boat wedding at night. Your guests will appreciate a sky full of stars and the gorgeous view of the South Florida backdrop.
