Congratulations, you’re getting married! Now comes the hard part – planning the wedding. Boat weddings have become very popular and affordable in the last couple of years and there are many reasons why you should consider having your wedding on a boat. We take a closer look at these, as well as how to go about planning weddings on boats.
Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life so you want it to be special and very memorable. If like many people you are on a bit of a budget or if you want a very intimate ceremony and reception with only your closest family and friends then choosing to hire a boat for your wedding automatically restricts the number of people you can invite. Thames boat hire London generally allows between 20 and 150 guests, depending on the size of the boat and your budget. Even if you choose to get married on shore you can still hold your wedding reception on a boat.
If you prefer to be very in control of your wedding and the reception then you may want to consider hosting it elsewhere than on a boat cruise, as these usually come with a wedding planner to help make things go more smoothly. However, if you are happy to let someone else be in control while you and your betrothed enjoy your special day then hiring a wedding boat for your wedding is an excellent idea.
The wedding planner in conjunction with the boat crew will take care of your wedding and guests as you travel down the Thames. All you have to do is simply choose between champagne receptions, informal buffet or sit down dinner, and whether you would like live music or a disco. Simple yet special and uniquely memorable, boat weddings are beautiful and may be the perfect thing to add to your special day.
