An Incredible Destination Wedding Experience
By Jesse A. Cisneros, Protravel International Destination Wedding Specialist
Valentine’s Day is a few days away and with love ALWAYS in the air, engagements and wedding planning often follow. What does this have to do with cruising you may be wondering? Celebrity Cruises & Protravel International offer incredible weddings at sea and they are like no other destination wedding. So, if you have upcoming nuptials, vow renewals to celebrate, or want to give some advice to a friend who is looking for a special, unique way to celebrate wedded bliss, read on.
An Easy and Convenient Way to Plan a Destination Wedding
Destination weddings are a fun way to tie the knot, especially for couples who love to travel, but they can also be a stressful endeavor to take on. When planning a destination wedding, you can’t just easily pop into different venues to tour them or meet with caterers and DJs to make sure your personalities fit. Not to mention you need to spend money to fly to the destination to plan it, which can add a substantial amount to your budget. If you try to do all the planning remotely, you’ll likely feel stressed if everything is going to turn out how you expect it to be.
Get married during a cruise and Celebrity Cruises will help take on the wedding planning for you. You’ll have a dedicated point of contact both before (your Event Manager) and during the cruise (your Event Coordinator) to help you expertly arrange your celebration. Starting your marriage at sea with Celebrity Cruises means you know you are putting your wedding in the hands of a reputable company that has expertise in putting together destination weddings during a cruise. Another added worry-free bonus of having your wedding celebration during a cruise vacation is that you won’t have to worry about where your guests are staying or what they’ll eat or be entertained by on non-wedding days.
It’s also an all-inclusive wedding experience since all components of the wedding can be arranged for you. In addition to keeping your mind less stressed, you’ll also save tons of time on the months leading up to your wedding by not having to search for and interview: photographers, florists, caterers and DJs or musicians. Celebrity Cruises has highly skilled professionals on board and in port to work with that provide these services during your wedding and reception.
Proposals, Too! Sail Away for an Amazing “iDo” Engagement
Also, if you’re not married yet, but are looking for a special and memorable way to pop the question, Celebrity Cruises & Protravel Sierra Madre also offer proposal packages. Whisk your beloved off on an exotic cruise vacation and then when she or he least expects it, pop that question with the help of Celebrity Cruises.
With a proposal package, Celebrity Cruises will arrange a table for you in one of the specialty restaurants to ask the question with a photographer on hand to take engagement photos right after the proposal. You will also have an Event Manager and Event Coordinator to consult with before and during the cruise to make sure everything is set up accordingly for the proposal.
There are many more options, too, to make the occasion special, including scattered rose petals in your stateroom, sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries, and gourmet breakfast in your stateroom the morning after the proposal.
