Wedding on the High Seas, and Throw in the Honeymoon

OK, you have decided to get married. You can’t decide between saving for the down payment on a home, paying off your student loans or having a memorable wedding.

We are not sure about the students loans, but you can save for the dream home, AND have a beautiful and affordable wedding.

It’s called “Destination Weddings.”

That’s when you load up the family, close friends and a few special co-workers, all on one cruise ship and head out to sea. This unique decision can save you thousands of dollars on your wedding plans.

First of all, you would include the wedding and the honeymoon in one, lavish, high quality, financially controlled environment.

Second of all, once your family and friends book their cruise — it will lower the bride and groom’s cruise package and could even render you a free cruise depending on how many guest book a cruise.

Third, the cruise lines coordinates your wedding, invitations, reception, pre-wedding parties, marriage licenses and all the details of your wedding, including photographs, for one set price. (usually very reasonable)

The first step to secure this type of wedding, is for the bride and groom to book their cruise — the cruise lines won’t book the wedding until your cruise is booked. The hardest decision for the bride and groom is to select a destination. Depending on where you live and the income bracket of your family and friends, you may want to select a three day cruise , or perhaps a seven day cruise. If you opt for a cruise longer then seven days, a percentage of your guest may not be able to vacation that long.

Couples who book through a travel agency almost always get better cruise packages then if a couple booked their own cruise. And depending on what travel agency you use, you can get your cruise package 100% free (this does not include the wedding package, which is billed separately.

The Reception

Receptions for weddings at sea, is a breeze. Meaning, there is no need to spend a lot on the reception when 5 course meals, served every night, are included in the cost of the cruise. Often times the wedding party has Champaign, wedding cake and then head for the dinning room for a delicious 5 course meal. A more casual wedding party might want to move the party to the 24 hour buffet, either way — there is no real reason to spend heavy on food for the reception.

Web Cam

One of the most popular benefits of weddings at sea, is you can invite people from all over the world to view your wedding online. The wedding cam can broadcast your wedding over the Internet, in real time, so the people back home can celebrate your special day with you.

Professional Wedding Planner

One of the best things about having a wedding at sea, is a professional wedding planner works with you on every detail of the wedding. Professional wedding planners are expensive – but, the cruise lines provides them as a part of your wedding package. Now, all you need is an experienced travel coordinator who can work with all the different personalities and income brackets of your family and friends!

5 Star Floating Resort

For those who have never cruised before, just know that these mega ships are like 5 start floating resorts — you can barely fee the motion of the ocean. These mega ships literally cruise through the open seas at speeds that are relaxing and enjoyable.

There is always a lot to do with, the Las Vegas style entertainment, movies, casinos, art shows, afternoon teas, bingo, talent nights, cocktail parties, library, pool side activities and band, internet cafe, gym, spa, beauty salon, exercise classes, piano bar and land based excursions. It’s really hard to run out of things to do.

Most of the cruise lines have a program for teens and they enjoy being away from their parents and meeting other teens in their same age bracket.
