WEDDING ON BOAT
Sail away with me…
The beautiful Split harbor with the amazing Diocletian’s palace, the coast and the islands around can be the most beautiful background for your wedding and one of most beautiful ones is Blue Lagoon.
Blue Lagoon in Croatia is not your usual blue lagoon created by the coral reefs found around tropical islands forming a shallow lagoon with the crystal clear blue sea inside. There are no coral reefs in Croatia but that doesn’t mean that there are no blue lagoons. Blue lagoons in Croatia are usually formed between a number of small islands which are usually separated by the shallow lagoon between them that we like to call blue lagoons.
Since the Adriatic sea around the Croatian islands is always crystal clear the shallow water inside the lagoon is immaculately clear so you can easily see all the way to the bottom of the sea. You can even see all kinds of fishes and other sea animals from the lagoon bottom.
There is a boat to suit all weddings – from rustic and characterful to super-sleek and streamlined.
Things to consider when you searching for the perfect boat for the wedding:
- Passenger numbers are strict, as vessels are surveyed for a maximum number of people they are legally allowed to carry. Numbers are therefore the first place to start when tying the knot on a boat (pun intended). So, check your wedding guests list twice.
- Think about wedding guests’ needs. This is obviously important with all weddings – the guests are your nearest and dearest after all – but boats are a special kind of venue that require a little pre-thinking up front. While a brisk sail might suit the younger wedding party members, it probably won’t suit your poor old gran who suffers from vertigo and would prefer a more stable option.
- Also, consider any family members or friends with mobility issues and ask for ramps if required. And make sure you provide adequate shade – consider a later or earlier wedding and avoid the middle of the day – and provide cold water for guests before and after the ceremony.
- Most boats are child-friendly and will accept littlies on board, but they still need to be well looked after. Consider contacting Airlie Beach Babysitting by Danielle and bring a babysitter on the boat wedding so you and your guests can relax. Kids get bored easily and nannies will keep them entertained with games and activities.
