Planning to get a private yacht charter for your wedding? Then there is a world of opportunities that awaits!
Moving away from traditional wedding ceremonies, following the unconventional path of tying the knot on the ocean has a lot of perks; not only will you have gorgeous landscape views as a backdrop to your photos, but you’ll also be able to cruise around the coast on the water.
After all, going for luxury yacht charters on your big day is in itself an exclusive experience – it’s brimming with romance, uniqueness, and ambience! Without a doubt, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime moment that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
However, as different as a location it is compared to your usual on-land weddings – you can still incorporate similar activities before the big day arrives. Read on for the fun-packed activities to lead up to the wedding ceremony!
Romantic and personal: A first look
Before anything else, always remember that a wedding is between you and your spouse; any activities for your guests can always come later for sure.
So, if you don’t mind not following customs and traditions, you can arrange a private meeting between the two of you; otherwise also known as a first look. It’s a moment on the big day when the bride and groom meet to see each other for the first time.
And if you would like to capture this sweet moment between the two of you, request your photographer to snap a couple of photos so you can cherish this precious day. Once you’ve had some alone time with each other, it’s then time for you to start thinking up of some fun ways to entertain your guests.
Reminisce cherished memories: Photo session
Sure, photos on the boat will look magical, but capturing the moments before embarking is just as special.
Have your photographer take special photos of the soon-to-be couple and the bridal party; either standing on the wooden pier or walkway and even just as they are about to climb onto the boat.
Before the wedding ceremony starts, the photographer can take a big group photo of all the guests.
Spice it up with entertainment: Game time
For certain, there are numerous games for guests to play before a wedding ceremony begins – or even after it’s over!
But remember, your choice of games shouldn’t involve too much or any contact at all with the current COVID-19 crisis – hence, keep in mind to choose wisely. For instance, DJ Name That Tune is excellent as everyone remains in their seats, use their ears to listen to the short portion of the song, and guess the song once it’s finished!
Throw in a couple of enticing prizes, and you’ll see everyone at full concentration trying to make the right guess.
But that’s just one out of the many games out there – feel free to use your creativity to come up with your own games or do a little research on your own! Otherwise, if you’re out of ideas – here’s a list to help you get started:
- I Spy Wedding Game: Ask guests to use their own devices such as mobile phones or cameras to take photos of the most special or fun moments of the day.
- Stand Up, Sit Down: A host will announce a set of funny questions, and a guest will sit down or stand up to answer, which stands for “yes” and “no”, respectively, or vice versa.
- Couple’s Crossword: Come up with your own crossword including special events you’ve spent together, such as the time you both first met or the time when you’ve bought the first gift for your partner.
No matter what fun pre-boat wedding activities you plan on incorporating into your day, as long as you enjoy it to the fullest, it will be perfect.
