There is something inherently romantic about boats. Maybe it is the gentle rocking or being out in open water with all the potential that represents or all of the love stories revolving around boats that fuels this belief. Plus, and let’s admit it, naval officers do look pretty swoon worthy in dress uniforms. So, it would make sense couples who are looking for a slightly different, but still classic, location for their wedding, would think of getting married on a boat. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons to exchange your vows on the open water.
Smaller Intimate Setting:
If keeping your guest list nice and trim is important for you, getting married on a boat is a great way to make sure you don’t go overboard, excuse the pun, on invites. Since space is limited, you can easily explain to your third cousin who you met once when you were kids on why it is only going to be nearest and dearest attending. Plus, it is a great way for those in attendance to get to know each other, if they haven’t met before, and for families to get better acquainted.
Whether you live in a city with a great skyline or a more rural area, the view from a boat is going to be hard to beat. With the water mirroring either the perfect natural back drop or a fantastic urban sprawl, you can save on decoration costs. And you don’t have to worry about if it will be up in time, so it is one less thing to have to worry about.
It Is Can Be Super Cost Effective:
Many boats have great deals on weddings, and since everything is happening in the same place, you don’t have to spend extra on fancy transport to and from the reception venue. Add to that the money you will save on only having to print one set of directions per invitation. So, if money is a concern but you still want to have a wedding to talk about, why not look into a nautical wedding?
