Today couples wed at a number of venues. Churches, synagogues, city hall, the beach, even drive-thru wedding chapels in Vegas. Some tie the knot sky diving or underwater with scuba gear. One of the fastest growing wedding options is aboard a cruise ship. Thinking of a cruise ship wedding will surely generate a lot of questions. So before bluntly dismissing this venue consider some of the advantages.

First of all, the notion that only guests who intend to join you on the cruise are able to attend the wedding is not at all accurate. The ceremony can be held on the ship dockside and the guests not staying for the cruise can disembark before the ship leaves port. When planning a cruise wedding, you should give your guests additional advance notice so that they can arrange vacation time if they wish to join you on the honeymoon cruise after the wedding ceremony.

The idea of having close friends and family along for the honeymoon may certainly not appeal to everyone, but on today's mega-ships you might not run into anybody you know all day. Some couples just arrange to meet their guests in the dining room each evening and plan the rest of their day just for themselves.

Not surprisingly, the cruise industry has pros who manage weddings. Pricing is very competitive because they know wedding cruises are a growing industry. They provide the couple with a wedding planner who works within the stated budget. Flowers, food, cakes, photographers, and entertainers are all taken care of, relieving a lot of the usual stress off the engaged couples. Just get some cute sailboat wedding favors to give to everyone and you are set! Also, read some of the cruise wedding reviews published on the web. They get very favorable ratings.

Expect your cruise wedding to go off without a hitch. The wedding planner will fulfill all your requirements. A priest, minister, rabbi, or even the captain can officiate the actual nuptials. Cocktails and food can be served - and then those not joining the cruise will leave the ship before sailing time.

Combining your honeymoon with the wedding is very economical. Most cruises offer far more value than the typical honeymoon because the cruise is almost all inclusive. There is literally food 24 hours a day, including room service. The newer cruise ships have dining rooms, buffets, late night snacks, and usually one midnight buffet per cruise. The only item not included is cocktails or wine, but even here you can purchase an alcoholic beverage package so your bar bill is set up front. Most of the modern cruise ships also offer upscale dinning in separate restaurants for a modest cover charge. Make sure to book reservations early because they sell out the tables quickly.

All the ships offer a wide variety of entertainment form sun up until the late hours of the night, such as Las Vegas style musical productions, headliner comedians, and magicians. There are multiple cocktail lounges with different musical themes, disco dancing, casino gambling, movies, bingo, and karaoke. Talk  it over with family and friends, contact some cruise lines, and then get ready to say bon voyage.
