Imagine the sound of the waves crashing against the yacht, a stunning sunset, a gentle evening breeze, beautiful photographs with the ocean as a backdrop, and guests mesmerized by the natural beauty around them – this is just a glimpse of a dream wedding on a yacht. A wedding at sea is not your average wedding; it’s unique and offers an adventure that you and your future family will cherish for years to come, reliving those sun-filled memories.

Let’s explore some ideas for your wedding on a yacht together, as it’s not just a simple ceremony but a journey that marks the beginning of your lifetime together.

  • Wedding Yacht Decoration:

Imagine swapping vows on the deck of a luxury yacht, such as the 55-foot Azimut Atlantis or the 52-foot Prestige, against a vast ocean. You can choose the yacht based on your request: how many guests, how many cabins, the availability of additional water transport and water toys, and an open area on the yacht for swimming in the Jacuzzi or tanning.

As decoration, you can use the marine theme to reflect the marine environment – consider the dark blue and white tones, anchor motifs, and the emphasis on ropes. Alternatively, a tropical theme with bright flowers and palm leaves perfectly complements the ocean background.

Here are six exciting decoration ideas that could beautifully enhance the ambiance of your yacht wedding, making it an unforgettable experience:

  • Nautical-themed table settings with dark blue and white linens;
  • Anchor motifs for invitations and onboard signage;
  • Rope accents for chair decorations and railings;
  • Bright floral arrangements with tropical flowers and palm leaves;
  • Customized yacht flags or banners;
  • Underwater lighting for evening celebrations.

Personal Ceremony: 

One of the advantages of a wedding on a yacht is the opportunity to create an intimate ceremony that will only be for you and your guests. Around you, the ocean and the blue sky above, and your vows will have even greater power amidst the beauty and grandeur of nature. Kings at sunset: Timed the ceremony to sunset to make it a truly magical moment. Changing colors of the sky and reflections in the water create a natural romantic atmosphere, ideal for photography, requiring no correction. This sunset state, which smoothly passes into a dinner with a view of the coastline, lit only by the moon and soft light, adds an element of sophistication and romance.

Dress code for wedding: Dresses for guests at the wedding on the yacht

For such an exquisite wedding party as a wedding on a yacht, it is essential to approach the dresses seriously for the guests of the groom and the bride. It is necessary to consider the color gamut, style, and style of outfits for all female and male guests. For example, it can be very light, flowing dresses for women in light colors, combined with the general decorations on the yacht, and linen suits with trousers or shorts for men. Its light colors will reflect the sunlight and natural fabrics combined with the freshness of the sea breeze.


Approximate cost: how much does a wedding on a yacht cost?

The price of a wedding yacht can vary greatly depending on different factors and requests, such as yacht size, number of guests, location, and level of exclusivity. On average, a yacht wedding can range from $10,000 for a small, more modest event to over $50,000 for a more significant, elaborate event. It is essential to cooperate closely with the yachting company, as they are much more experienced in carrying out such events and will help to ideally choose the right yacht and all the necessary additional services.

Outside of vows: bachelorette party on the yacht

Although the wedding is the culmination of your celebration, the journey there can be no less memorable. The bachelorette party on the yacht is a unique way to relax and prepare for the big celebration. It can be a day trip along the coast, which includes a lot of entertainment for you and your guests: catering, exciting programs, water transport, and water toys. Or you can stop for an evening walk that captures a beautiful sunset. Often, the companies from which you can rent a yacht offer the same extensive services designed for such cases and guarantee an unforgettable experience.

Make this day special. 

The individual approach, preferences, and ideas will make your wedding memorable and reflect your couple’s style. Still, do not leave the whole organization to the companies. They will certainly do everything professionally, but only you can add a unique, personal charm and make your wedding day unlike all the others.

Be sure to think about how best to tell your personal story—your first meeting, kiss, and trip. Add to the decor your photos and letters to each other. Prepare surprises for guests who will remind you of you and your day.

If you still have to decide how to spend your wedding day, consider having a wedding on a yacht. The love oath on board the yacht is a unique combination of adventure, romance, and luxury that will make the beginning of your family journey unforgettable and magical.
