Today’s Destination: Cruise Weddings post is all about inspiration! Via this week’s earlier posts, hopefully we’ve provided you with the knowledge and insight you needed to firmly decide on hosting a destination cruise wedding. Now, we’re hoping to inspire you to make it the wedding of your dreams! We’re sharing a gorgeous photo shoot that took place in and was inspired by one of the top European cruise destinations, as well as a Pinterest board dedicated to all things cruise weddings-related! Please stay tuned tomorrow for a real-life cruise destination wedding to the Bahamas!

Venice Wedding Inspiration

In DID’s humble opinion, Venice is one of the most magical places on earth! So, it’s no surprise that it served as a stunning backdrop for this photo shoot. Venice is also a popular port for European cruises and would make an unforgettable spot for a ceremony. To help inspire you to explore the world and to hopefully influence your wedding style, please check out this lovely photo shoot put together by a group of amazing people. See something you love? Please find a full vendor list below! 

Also, be sure to check out our Spring 2018 issue for an additional feature that includes the shoot stylist’s “Stress Free Tips for Selecting Wedding Attire.” We were honored to have Beth Chapman of Beth Chapman Styling share her helpful tips with our readers via our Ask The Expert section! Beth, who is also owner of The White Dress by the shore, a couture bridal boutique in Connecticut, also has a brand new book that she co-authored, The White Dress Destinations.
