Right up there with Mariah Carey singing, Tom Ford providing the suits and wedding bands from Cartier, getting married at sea is a dream for many gay grooms. In the tradition of Disney, Princess Cruises is coming to the rescue with ceremonies for sax sex couples at sea, with a difference.
While it’s romantic to marry in international waters, being able to invite loved ones to witness your big day can be a problem. Princess’s Australian Weddings at Sea are now offered harbourside in Sydney and Melbourne so guests can jump on board and leave before you head off for your honeymoon.
Basically, you're going away outfit can be a speedo and fluffy robe as you give your sea legs a rest poolside while waving goodbye to family and friends.
Packages for harbourside weddings start at $2000 (plus licensing fees) and include a wedding coordinator to assist with flowers, music, cake, catering and much more.
The starting package includes priority check-in and boarding for the couple and guests, an onboard wedding ceremony in the chapel or library performed by a nondenominational celebrant, recorded music, two silk floral arrangements, a rose bouquet and boutonniere, a photographer, wedding cake, bottle of sparkling wine and a keepsake wedding certificate.
You can even set up a gift registry with the ship. Rather than end up with five Dinosaur Designs salad servers, family and friends can chip in for your shore excursions, spa packages and romantic meals on board.
