Tips for Your Perfect South Florida Yacht Wedding

Your wedding day should be special, not stressful, and the planning process should be fun! This checklist will help you with the most important aspects, so you can rest assured knowing they’re taken care of and spend your time making memories instead of lists.

  1. Venue – The venue of your wedding can make or break the event. You want to be completely happy with what you choose, and know that your guests will enjoy it too. A yacht is a great choice, because not only are you commemorating the day in a luxury setting, but a cruise means the scenery will vary, giving you the best South Florida has to offer. Charter One offers two vessel options to fit your wedding needs, depending on size and your personal taste.
  2. Décor and Theme – Will your wedding be classic or modern? Black tie or with a unique theme? The décor helps shape the celebration, whether you’re looking for elegant centerpieces or Vegas themed casino décor. The décor should reiterate and enhance your theme, making the wedding an event to remember. Charter One Yachts has a staff on hand to assist in decorating, no matter what you choose. They specialize in themes like masquerade balls and also have a huge variety of more classic options on hand. The event coordinators will be happy to work with you in picking out décor that fits your style, no matter what it is.
  3. Menu – As everyone knows, when planning a wedding, the menu is extremely important. Guests look forward to the food, and with a perfect menu you’ll have them raving about your wedding for years to come. Whether you’re serving formal dinner or passing appetizers, you should serve food that’s delicious and presented well. Charter One Yachts has a menu option for all of your needs, from themed menus and appetizer samplers to full-service dinners. They provide the staff and the menu, and you sit back and enjoy. All food allergies and preferences are also taken into consideration, so you don’t have to worry about anything. Menus include bar options as well, and the yachts even come equipped with large bar areas.
  4. Entertainment – Will you dance to a band or a DJ when you take the floor for your first dance as husband and wife? Will the music be a mix of genres, or will it stick with a theme? These are things to consider, so that there are no surprises the night of your wedding and you can dance the night away in bliss. At Charter One Yachts, entertainment options are endless, and all sound equipment is on hand so you don’t have to coordinate with audio companies. Whether you’re looking for a jazz band, a DJ or live music spanning genres, Charter One can help you plan it all.
