Here are ten reasons why you might want to tie the knot whilst cruising on the ocean.

1. Stress Relief

Planning the biggest day of your life comes with many pressures, from keeping it personal to inviting the right guests; even trying to incorporate the values of both the bride and the groom can be daunting. However, with most cruise ship weddings all your planning is taken care of by others, from organising a photographer to arranging the cake, leaving you to sit back, relax and enjoy your big day.

2. Flexible Budgeting

Whether you want a lavish ceremony with no expense spared or an intimate service for family only, a cruise ship wedding can suit your needs. With flexible options for how (and where) you want your big day to go, planning a cruise ship wedding can be as extravagant or as modest as you choose.

3. Inclusive Honeymoon

For family and friends who are travelling on board, a cruise ship wedding is an easy way to put everyone up after a very long night. The added benefit of a cruise, however, is that you could be on your way to your honeymoon without even leaving the reception. This way you can enjoy the luxury of stress-free travel and begin your honeymoon a little sooner.

4. Destination: Wedding

With cruises all over the world, you can choose to get married in one of the most beautiful parts of the earth without being lumbered with all the expense and hassle. Enjoy the sunshine of the Caribbean or Cape Verde on your wedding day without having to learn the local laws or language, making this the best of both worlds.

5. Fiscal Responsibility

You want a marriage, not just a wedding. What you and your partner have is going to last you a lifetime and you don’t want to blow your savings on one extravagant day. However, with the cost of the church, licences, vendors, venues and transportation to consider, expenses quickly mount up. With a cruise ship wedding, you can have everything in one location at no extra cost, making your life simpler and more cost-effective.

6. All Together

If you fancy having your family and friends all together for your big day, what better way than booking a block of rooms? This way you get to stay together throughout the celebrations.

7. Ocean Views

Finding your perfect wedding venue can be a nightmare   the more beautiful the location, the greater the price. With a cruise ship wedding, you can avoid all the fuss, enjoying gorgeous scenery at no extra cost.

8. Ahoy Cap’n

Unlike any other venue in the world, a cruise ship is the one place where you can be legally married by the captain (provided, of course, that the captain is licensed to perform marriages and the liner is in international waters or in a territory that does not outlaw such marriages).

9. Location

With cruises departing for all corners of the globe, a cruise ship wedding gives you the flexibility to get married anywhere you like. Total freedom on your day of bliss!

10. Something a Bit Different

You’re looking for a way to make your wedding stand out, but you don’t want it to look tacky. In this case, a cruise ship wedding is the perfect way to make a tasteful statement to be remembered.
