Keep the Celebration Going: Wedding Event Ideas Beyond "I Do"
Our yachts are the most flexible event venues around. Our vessels are available for charter anytime year-round and we think beyond the wedding reception. A wedding on a yacht isn't the right for every couple but every couple can -- and should! -- work the water into their wedding festivities in some way. Here are a few ideas and options:
Unique Rehearsal Dinners
We were voted "Best Rehearsal Dinner Location" by Capital Style Magazine's Bridal Readers Choice Awards. Celebrate and enjoy your family and friends as you cruise the scenic Severn River, Chesapeake Bay or Baltimore Harbor in style. Even if you choose an alternate wedding reception venue in Maryland, an elegant yacht charter is an excellent choice for rehearsal dinners in Baltimore, Annapolis rehearsal dinners or Eastern Shore rehearsal dinners. Pick a theme or just have fun! Watermark yachts are the perfect setting for all types of dinners from cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to buffet stations, plated sit down dinners or even dessert cruises. Our event planners can help with every detail to reflect your personal style, vision and budget as you plan your Chesapeake Bay yacht soiree.
Make the most of your wedding weekend with a rehearsal dinner on the water. A private yacht cruise is a great way to welcome out of town guests and introduce them to our beautiful region. Unwind before the big day and take in the evening breeze from the sea with a cocktail on the top deck. Rehearsal dinners range can from casual and fun (like on our Harbor Queen!)to as elegant and formal (like on Catherine Marie!) as the wedding day. Whatever your rehearsal dinner style, we have the venue for you.
+ OUR YACHTS ARE GREAT FOR...
Picture this: a sunset, the Chesapeake Bay, a chilled bottle of champagne, just you and your loved one and your own private boat. Our smaller vessels like Miss Anne, Severn Exposure and even the Water Taxi are the perfect intimate setting to pop the question. Make this unforgettable moment one that will guarantee a "yes." Start your journey as a married couple in a most impressive way.
Bridal Party Cocktail Cruises
Charter the cozy Miss Anne for your bridal party (up to 22 guests). Enjoy sunset cocktails, dessert treats and your own private cruise. This is a fun way to go restaurant hopping by water in downtown Annapolis and Eastport.
Lady Sarah or Cabaret II are great venues for classy and intimate bridal showers. Plan a champagne brunch or an afternoon dessert and tea affair for the bride to be. A private cruise is sure to entertain all guests and make for an extra special shower.
Bachelorette & Bachelor Parties
Did someone say party boat? Our yachts cruise when you want for as long as you want. Our well equipped bars and mixologists serve up beer, wine, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. Open top decks are ready for dancing. Your own yacht? Yes, it can happen.
Water Taxi Shuttles
Are you planning nuptials at a waterfront venue in Annapolis? Our fleet of Water Taxis are available for private charter. The Water Taxi or Miss Anne offers a fun and easy way to transport guests from location to location. Ask us for ideas! Are you getting married on the water in Annapolis? Private Water Taxi service is available to shuttle your guests around Annapolis, take them downtown after the reception or make your getaway extra memorable.
Keep the party going into the night. Our yachts are available for late night events. Our vessels have space for dancing, drinking and eating. Lounge spaces on certain vessels add a great vibe for a fun after party. Plus we know the best caterers in town to provide tasty bites to nosh on and desserts to divulge in. Host your reception on land and venture out to sea for the after party. Our yachts are available anytime.
Next Day Brunch
Host a brunch cruise with mimosas and a breakfast buffet for out of town guests the morning after your wedding. Welcome your first day as newlyweds on the water. This is a great way to thank those who traveled to celebrate you and your partner and relish in your new life with loved ones before jetting off for a honeymoon. The fresh breeze off the water will usher in this new chapter of your life.
