When tailoring your nautical voyage, not only do wedding venues on the water have everything you need, but they also feature some of the most stunning backdrops! Think the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Washington Monument in DC or the New York City skyline! Plus, there is the convenience of having your wedding guests all in one place, so transport and logistics won’t be an issue.

You can choose to tailor your ceremony on a deck with stunning views of the city or the beautiful sea, immerse yourself into cocktail hour to savor the newlywed feel, and revel in a gorgeous reception in our indoor and outdoor spaces, sharing the joy with your favorite people.

Can couples plan a rehearsal dinner on the yacht?

Of course! It only makes sense to do so. It’s best to get aboard and get a feel before the big day. You can start your celebrations early and gather your families to mark this iconic milestone. With awe-inspiring views of the city and chef-designed menus, the dinner will set the tone for the upcoming wedding the next day. You can also elevate the guest experience with our other wedding-related activities such as engagement parties, bridal showers, day-after brunches, and more!


How long is a yacht wedding?

In most cases, wedding venues on the water have their own different policies and packages but the average is around 3-4 hours. Naturally, timelines can always be altered to the couple’s needs and preferences! The City Cruises wedding team will work closely with you to figure it all out.


Can couples bring their own decor for their yacht wedding?

The venue’s wedding team will guide you through all of their offers and limitations so you will understand immediately whether that is possible. There is the probability of some decor being restricted so it is best to be open and express your vision. The team will do anything in their power to realize your dreams and even provide alternatives to some limited decor options!




What do yacht wedding all-inclusive packages feature?

This is another point that depends on the destination, but generally, couples have anything from a wedding coordinator to catering, bar, reception setting elements, tableware, linens, and chairs – many even have their own DJs with a great sound and lighting system! With a dedicated staff catering to your every need, your day will flow smoothly with a wedding on the water by City Cruises.


Will you have enough photo ops when it comes to wedding venues on the water?

Yacht weddings provide some of the best photo ops you could ask for! You can plan your group photos on the deck, have your first look at the back of the yacht, and sneak out with your photographer for an intimate creative session with the city as your backdrop. However, it is best to talk with your professional to make the most of it.

If you wish to have more versatility, doing the first look can be at another location before boarding the yacht. Boat weddings are special and have a unique kind of splendor. Trust us, the backdrops you will get for your photography will be enough to bring back all of the emotions and make you relive them. Meaningful images that are made to be cherished for decades to come!
