When you organize an outdoor wedding, you have to take many things into account, from location and venue, to all the little details, such as testimonials and the colours of the napkins. And after so many things to take care of, an unexpected rain might ruin it all. But you don’t have to worry at all about any of those things when you choose to get married underwater. If you are an adventurous couple, check the advice and recommendations in this article!
1. Why choose an underwater wedding?
Maybe you met near the ocean or attended a scuba diving course together, where you learned how to explore the underwater world, and that’s how the love for exploring the ocean became your thing. Having mutual interests is essential in any successful relationship, so getting married underwater can be the perfect way to re-enact those special moments that helped create a strong connection. Moreover, being a part of an underwater wedding ceremony can be easier than choosing a conventional way of getting married.
Here are a few reasons why you should get married underwater:
- You can spiritually connect with your future spouse
Spiritually speaking, a wedding in the sea is the best way to elope and celebrate this special day on your own terms, far away from the stresses of everyday life. Furthermore, many divers find the water to be a peaceful place, where they can feel more like themselves.
- It’s the perfect setting for an intimate wedding
From a practical point of view, having an underwater wedding means you don’t have to worry about the location, outfits, organizing guests and so much more. Such an event is the perfect opportunity to focus on what’s really meaningful – the moment when you and your loved one will unite your destinies for life. So, if your wish is to have a small and intimate gathering, this is a perfect occasion to limit your guest list to people who know how to dive; this way you can have the ceremony you have always longed for.
- It’s the best way to make your special day unique
One of the main reasons you should consider an underwater ceremony is that it doesn’t fall in the category of standard weddings, being the perfect way to give uniqueness to your special day and a way to stand out from the crowd.
- It’s an opportunity to get adventurous
When you choose to have an underwater ceremony, you get the chance to dive into some of the most beautiful places in the world. But to get the experience you wish for, as well as affordable prices, it would be best to turn to the services offered by WeDo Agency, where a professional team with experience in underwater weddings will take care of absolutely everything you need, from holding scuba diving courses, to the approval of documents and officiating the ceremony.
- You won’t need any elaborate decorations or vows
Being under the water, you won’t be able to read your vows, therefore you both have to wear waterproof cards on which you can print some nice words or, much simpler, just write “I do” on them. Moreover, you won’t even need any elaborate decorations, since the amazing and colorful ocean floor can be the ideal venue for you.
2. What are the best places for an under the sea themed wedding?
The seafloor can be the best ‘venue’ for a perfect wedding, mostly for diving couples who like to venture into the yet mysterious underwater world. From Mexico to Thailand, the world is filled with adventurous beaches and lagoons waiting to be explored. So, check out these exotic locations for your exciting underwater wedding theme:
- Wedding in the sea: Mexico
Who needs a fancy venue when you can have a special wedding under the waters of Mexico? The best beaches for such a wedding are those of the Caribbean, because they are free of dangerous currents and also surrounded by beautiful marine flora, such as corals, seagrass and algae. When it comes to fauna, chances are that you will meet dolphins in the Caribbean part, and sea lions in the Sea of Cortez, located in the Gulf of California. Because such activities are common around the area, it’s easy to find the perfect place, in which you can both feel safe and also have lots of fun.
- Wedding in the sea: Bora Bora
The island group known as Bora Bora has been a wedding destination for couples all over the world for a while now, enchanting visitors with its unique surroundings and hospitality. There’s no doubt that the services are high-quality, and this is true even when it comes to an underwater ceremony. So, due to the high demand, the locals have built a chapel 10 feet under the Polynesian lagoons, where adventurous couples, no matter their religion or nationality, can tie the knot.
- Wedding in the sea: Thailand
Thailand already has the reputation of being one of the most desired wedding and honeymoon destinations in the world, thanks to its amazing beaches and breathtaking scenery. The most famous place for under the sea ceremonies is the southern province of Trang, located on the Andaman Coast. This is the place where the first underwater wedding in Thailand was ever recorded, more than 30 years ago. Since then, this culture has taken root, and today the spectacular islands of Trang are the most sought after wedding destinations in the area.
Having an underwater ceremony is not always a piece of cake. First, you both need a strong sense of adventure and the willingness to learn how to master the scuba diving techniques. Secondly, it’s necessary to find a tropical location that fits your needs, as well as an officiant with experience in such events.
