11. Inquire about wheelchair availability before arrival

Some yachts have limited wheelchair accessibility, so if you want to enjoy or arrange your wedding on yacht you have to consider any elderly or disabled guests. Many yachts also have very congested corridors, staircases and high thresholds, so keep in mind to look for your guests with mobility issues when choosing for your wedding on any yacht or boat.

12. Be prepared for the possibility of seasickness.

During most bay or harbor cruises, seasickness is not a problem due to the calm waters. The fact that guests can always enjoy the scenery tends to make them feel more comfortable. Nevertheless, to ensure your guests are not prone to getting seasick, you have to be prepared. Consider adding some information to your wedding card or invitation on ways to combat seasickness, and have some ginger tea, ginger ale, or ginger candies on board.

13. Highlight the details of the wedding with a wedding invitation.

Provide an appropriate dress code, suitable for standing up to the elements (e.g. “nautical attire”), along with a description of the expected weather. Tell guests shades or sunblock will be a good idea based on the weather forecast and to remind them they may need a sweater or a coat. Women should also be informed about what to expect on the vessel (e.g. steep staircases) so they can opt for flats, wedges, or even flip-flops rather than stilettos!

14. Be prepared for bad weather.

If you would like an open-air wedding, we know you don’t want to consider the possibility of rain or extreme winds on your wedding day. In the event of inclement weather, though, be prepared! Talk with your coordinator about a “Plan B” interior space—just in case.

15. With your photographer, discuss photo opportunities.

It may be difficult for you to take formal photographs on your boat due to the size of the venue. Before your wedding voyage you might want to take “first look” or bridal party photos in a separate location.

16. It would be awesome to host more wedding-related events on a beautiful yacht.

If you’re not fully convinced that a wedding on the water’s for you, consider hosting your engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner on one! You’ll get the nautical experience of a boat event without the full commitment of hosting your entire wedding on board.
