We have five awesome reasons you should consider getting married on a cruise – from the food to accommodations and more, it can be cheaper.
1. They’re really affordable
2. Almost everything is included in the price
With a cruise wedding, there’s no need to spend hours searching the web and local papers for the best-priced bakery or the best-reviewed photographer, both of which will easily cost a few thousand dollars each. Depending on the type of package you book, everything is included in your cruise wedding a cake, photographer, officiant, music, flowers, a wedding coordinator basically everything you can think of. And if it’s not included in your package or you want something extra such as some added cake decorations, they’ll make it happen for you for a very small, incredibly reasonable surcharge. So not only is everything taken care of for you, it’s included in the price too.
3. You can get married onboard or have an exotic destination wedding
There are several different packages to choose from for your wedding, but the two most popular are shipboard weddings while docked and destination weddings at ports of call. The former means you can get married while the ship is docked; that way guests can come and get off the ship before it leaves if they can’t join you on the cruise. The latter means you can get married at a destination while the ship is in port. This cruise wedding option could save some couples a lot of money in airfare, hotels, venue costs, , who want to have an exotic destination wedding that’s more affordable.
4. Your guests can join the cruise with a great group rate
If you’re going to book a cruise wedding, you should definitely use a travel agent to help you coordinate the bookings for all the guests that want to cruise too. The added bonus here is that travel agents can get great group rates when booking eight or more cabins at a time, meaning your friends and family can go for even cheaper than what’s advertised and making it even harder for them to say no.
