How To Go For Underwater Wedding
If you really love someone and would like to have a dream come true wedding fantasy into a reality, then underwater marriage ceremony can offer you that one time, out of the world marriage in paradise experience. Not everyone thinks of it, so that also makes it a different experience and creates a memory of a lifetime. There are a lot of guys who take their partners to exotic beaches and propose them. That’s one way of creating an ever lasting memory too with your loved ones. I can see a lot of people getting married near the beaches and just have some great pictures underwater. I love that idea too.
Top Reasons Why You Should Go For Underwater Wedding:
- You are adventurous and love the idea of doing things different than others.
- You really love your partner and know how safely it can be achieved by planning properly.
- If you are an avid diver or are willing to learn diving thoroughly before opting for it.
- You don’t really care about your wedding dress much or how you look without makeup, down under water but all you really care is about the wild romantic experience.
- Your partner is equally excited and an avid diver as you are.
Things To Keep In Mind Before Taking Up The Adventure:
Get Certified: There are a few websites offering underwater wedding packages. They also offer Certification Classes. Though you are scuba certified it’s better to get enrolled for the under water wedding training and get certified. It’s a must and don’t underestimate the unforeseen risks involved.
Wedding Invites: Since it’s not a traditional wedding you and your partner will not be able to invite guests. It can be just the two of you and the instructors who also can be performing the ceremony.You may feel a bit disappointed about not inviting your family or friends for the actual ceremony.
However you can always have an after wedding party for your family and friends or a separate small wedding ritual again with them. So give a thought about this one.
Ceremony Planning: Plan your ceremony well about how you want to make it special. If you are planning to kiss each other without the masks be prepared to try it before the wedding and discuss it with your instructor.
You can also check if you can carry any additional things such as flowers, banners and hearts, if you plan to give different poses for photography.
Any extra time you would like to spend down there, discuss with your instructor and be well prepared.
If you intend to keep your makeup, ask your photographer to capture your pictures on land before the ritual.
Wedding Dress: Some packages only allow you to wear their wedding dresses and some allow you to buy a dress of your choice. Go for a hairstyle which doesn’t run all over your face and ruin the moment.
Also ladies you can pick those body fitting gown like wedding clothes so that they stay well in place down under water.
If you are afraid you may not look your best, go for a pre-wedding rehearsal with a trained instructor. I guess this should help you look glamorous on your most awaited day.
Costs Involved: Do your math about your budget and the costs involved. Most underwater wedding packages should cost you around 7000$ to 10000$. You will also have the consider the pre-wedding certification, travel , stay, photography and video costs. The underwater wedding package should include your accommodation costs too. Sometimes these costs are actually lower compared to the wedding costs on lands in some countries.
No Alcohol: It’s going to be one big adventurous day of your life and don’t ruin it by drinking alcohol. Abide by the rules and stay safe. You can always have one after the ceremony and call the day.
The ones in Bali and Bora Bora are really doing great by turning these fantasies into realities. Bali under water package allows non certified divers to have an Intro Dive course before the wedding day and without any extra charge. They also offer Champagne Picnic Basket after the ceremony. So don’t be too skeptical to try it out. Most of these underwater wedding companies know about the complexities involved and are well trained to ensure it goes right. Also they fairly have an idea about your interests and anything extra you would like to do, so discussing with them should help in smooth execution of your dream fantasies.
