You Can Get Married Quite Literally on the Ocean

Maybe a wedding by the sea sounds great, but you’re one of those people who can’t stand the feeling of sand in places sand shouldn’t be. Have you considered having the event actually on the ocean water?

Boatsetter lives and breathes boat events and weddings. The company specializes in creating the absolute perfect vessel charter wedding, and they cover almost all of the details for you!

Set sail for destination “I do” and invite your guests to enjoy the salty air, breath-taking sunsets and intimate feel of a boat-deck ceremony.

“There are various types of wedding boat rentals,” Boatsetter explains on their website, “and you can choose between a yacht, a sailboat for an intimate wedding or a catamaran, which is a great option for larger receptions.”

Hop ‘on board’ (see what we did there) with a boat wedding idea like celebrities Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz did! In August of 2019, the couple chartered an impressive 343-foot-long vessel for their celebrations off the coast of Italy.

If you don’t “ship” (young slang meaning “see it fitting”) your budget and a boat of that grandeur, no worries! Boatsetter offers a wide variety of rental options and prices all in hundreds of locations across the globe.

“Apart from being very sophisticated,” Boatsetter says. “It can also be well received by the guests. They would all have to come at the marked time since the boat is set to raise sails. After the wedding ceremony family and friends are welcomed to enjoy the music since both the band and the DJ are allowed on a boat as your guests. Amongst the music, you can have an exquisite dinner, and enjoy the view over the subtle waves.”

Perhaps, like us, the lyrics to Frank Sinatra’s classic song ‘How Deep Is the Ocean’ echoes in your mind. Find out just how deep the ocean is, how high the sky is and how far you’d travel to make saying “I do” special for you! Now, listen to the song to set the mood:
