One of the most challenging parts of planning a wedding is finding the perfect venue. The happy couple wants to find something unique, convenient, and fun for them and their guests.
Why not consider getting married on the water?
Beach and destination weddings have been popular for years, but they are also expensive. One of the wedding venue options growing in popularity is the option to get married on a yacht. And for a New Yorker, what could be better than getting married with the city skyline behind you?
Can You Get Married on a Yacht?
Almost every city that sits near a body of water has some venues offering weddings on the water, and Skyline Cruises is one of the best options for a yacht wedding in New York.
With plenty of free parking at our home port in Queens and various cruises offered, the price for the happy couple and their guests is less than you might think. In addition, Skyline Cruises offers catered meals on most cruises, so the yacht and the staff are well-equipped to serve your wedding guests. For a full-ship charter, we can also depart from our other ports: Chelsea Piers or Pier 36 in Manhattan, Municipal Marina in New Rochelle, Port Washington, NY, Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, NJ, Norwalk, CT, or Stamford, CT.
Getting married aboard a Skyline Cruises yacht means options of a ceremony on the deck or in the air-conditioned cabin. The boat is ready for dancing, DJs, drinks, and bouquets. Just make sure the bride throws her flowers to the waiting crowd, not out into the water. J
Since the standard cruises often include entertainment and music, the yacht is fully equipped to handle your wedding party without needing extra chairs, a stage, or a sound system. You’re also more than welcome to hire your DJ or band if desired.
How Expensive Are Yacht Weddings?
One of the nice things about getting married aboard a Skyline Cruise is that the wedding planners can choose how involved or budget-minded the party will be. Without a massive overhead for renting the venue, the bridal party can invest in decorations, food, or drinks. Many Skyline Cruises can be designed to be all-inclusive with an open bar, or the happy couple can save that extra expense and put it toward their honeymoon.
Skyline Cruises has wedding planners on staff to help the bridal party identify things that have been spectacular at other weddings. Having a team of professionals to help plan your special event means another expense you don’t have.
Finally, a Skyline Cruise can handle your wedding from vows through reception, meaning you need just one venue, not two. Cutting costs by not paying for the church or synagogue is an added benefit. And if you want to stick to the theme, the bridal party can even opt to have our yacht captain officiate the wedding.
