Marrying at Sea, a Deciding Factor

Spring is here, which means one thing, it’s wedding season.

In order to insure a well-planned wedding, you will have to determine a place and a budget.

Ever thought about tying the knot or renewing your vows in a rain forest, or on a glacier? Now you can have a completely unique day of your dreams on the Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas.

It’s the largest ship ever to offer cruise vacations from the West Coast, that  recently arrived in Los Angeles.

At 1,020 feet long and 138,279 gross registered tons, Royal Caribbean International’s Mariner of the Seas will sail year round from the Port of Los Angeles offering a seven night Mexican Riviera itinerary with ports of call at Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, Mexico.

A wedding at sea would be a wonderful choice for some brides. Don’t spend months worrying about florists and caterers. You can relax on the Mariner. Take a yoga class, get a massage or climb their signature rock wall. This is supposed to be one of the most exciting times in your life.

If you’re getting married, choose the wedding ceremony that suits your style, and they will take care of every last detail of your special day. If you’re coming onboard to renew your vows, why not celebrate your years together in a memorable way? Say, “I do” all over again onboard a cruise to your favorite destination.

In planning your expenses, recognize that you will probably not change your budget along the way, unless you are one of the few who have an unlimited budget. Therefore, it is best to now plan a tentative budget by determining what you will need, who be paying for each item, and what you think it will cost.

This is the time to consider certain alternatives. It’s necessary to work within your budget. Remember that comparison, shopping; creative ideas and above all organized, planning can create a well-organized wedding no matter what size the budget.
