Summer is the most favorite wedding season, because of many lovely things Sun and hot weather brings. But, certainly there are some drawbacks why many couples reconsider summer weddings. What about a boat wedding reception? Once you imagine a slight breeze, soothing sounds of river, lake or sea and the setting sun, you’ll have the difficulties in imagine spending your big day anywhere else. Those not very informed might think that there are no big enough boats for their river weddings. The fact is that boats nowadays are so accommodating and ideal for creating romantic, fun and memorable atmosphere for your wedding day.
Boats do come in all shapes and sizes, just as the other wedding reception options. So, if you are looking for wedding venues in London, consider boat weddings on the Thames, as well. Most companies specialized in renting boats for important events can accommodate up to 350 guests. The size of the boat you should rent depends on the number of your guests and do you need some extra space. Commonly, 137-foot yacht can hold approx. between 15 and 145 guests.
What costs should you keep in mind when planning your boat wedding reception? Of course, you’ll pay per guest, plus a docking fee. Just as with any other reception, the cost range is wide and usually depends on the company, size of the boat, number of guests etc. But, be sure what you are booking before making final decision. Usually, boat wedding reception consists of cocktail hour, full bar services, wedding buffet and table service while wedding guests are eating, dance floor with the sound system and the wedding coordinators. Of course, for those of you who would like to have less planning business, there are all-inclusive boat wedding packages including photographers, flowers, wedding cake, minister, dinner and the entertainment.
