Would you get married at sea?

Have you ever been to a cruise wedding? Would you have one yourself? Why or why not?

Sure, why not. Why not share what I love to do with the one I love.

Absolutely! Though that option wasn't available to me when I got married. I'd renew my vows at sea, though.

I probably would. You get married and you're already on your honeymoon :) Although I'd imagine that getting guests to commit to a long cruise would be pretty difficult.

I would. I have been on a 4 night cruise where a big wedding took place. they had a DJ and dancing by the pool in the evenings and some private events. When the 4 night cruises are on sale it is not bad price per guest when you consider nights of food and lodging. Family reunions are also good at sea.

Wow, classic topic bubbling up!  There are a lot of options here depending on what you’re looking for:

You can actually get “married at sea” on only certain cruise lines/ships – but it would absolutely be a wonderful experience!

A lot of folks who get married aboard a cruise ship actually do so while it’s docked in a US port and then the celebration/honeymoon continues throughout the cruise!

Others elect to get married ashore in any of the ports visited by cruise ships.  With the proper planning, this can lead to a magically unique wedding!

No matter what scenario you choose, getting married or renewing your vows during a cruise is in credibly romantic!  They didn’t call that show “The Love Boat” for nothing!

I was married on a cruise ship before it sailed and it worked out great.

I might consider it but not everyone likes cruises. So if the guests could just board for the time in port I would do it. 

Recently I attended a wedding on a day cruise ship that just cruised for a few hours.  It was marvelous!  Everyone had a great time.
