How deep is your love? Marine Wedding Ideas

Love marine life and looking to take the plunge with the love of your life and get married encircled by tropical fish and coral?

There are a variety of destinations and options available, even if you can't swim you can always take a dive and marry underwater.

If you don't wish to get wet or travel overseas but still want that underwater theme a great option is to get married at a local aquarium. An aquarium wedding will ensure an unforgettable watery experience for you and your guests and better still you don't have to get wet and ruin your wonderful wedding dress.

Another aquatic option is hiring a private submarine with some submarines offering space for up to 20 guests this is a great choice for those who would like a more intimate deep sea wedding experience. Popular locations to enjoy a submarine wedding include Mauritius, Fiji and Barbados.

If you want the real deal and to dive, the world has so many wonderful natural underwater backdrops. Popular locations to dive into the sea to get married include Bali, Hawaii, Thailand, Cayman Island, Mexico and the amazing Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Just like a normal wedding you can reduce your stress and take the burden of the wedding logistics away by using a specialist underwater wedding planner. Your choice of marine venue will be able to assist you to find your perfect wedding planner.

If you don't have the money and fancy planning your own wedding instead, no doubt you will be wondering how do I have a diving wedding experience and keep my guests dry? 

Don't worry all your guests don't have to join you in the water, unless you want them too, instead your guests can watch from aboard the dive boat or from your reception location near by.

In some countries a second ceremony may be necessary as not all ocean water weddings are legally accepted this is commonly done on the beach or at a beachside hotel.

So what are you waiting for? Tell your guests you are diving in to married life with a splash with one of these uniquely designed aquatic styled wedding invitations.

My English Beach Wedding and a pick-up truck!

Low budget wedding with a beach, bbq and a pickup truck ..not fancy but a lot of fun!

With our unpredictable weather in the UK a beach wedding can be risky business, but with some beautiful beaches matched with unrivalled lush cliff tops (we have something to thank our rain for) it's not as crazy as it seems.

Myself, I didn't go all the way with a beach wedding, in that the ceremony was held in the local registry office which was situated in a rather beautiful town hall, listed building with amazingly well kept gardens. I married back in the day when having a wedding officiant barefoot on a beach wasn't doable, at least not that I was aware of at that time. So we did the 'deed' in the registry office.

My small wedding party of about 35 guests then made our way via cars and a rusty blue pickup truck (me and my dress fitted easily into the back of it) travelled to the beach!

The weather was far from perfect with clouds and light drizzle, but our unorthodox drive and happy demeanour saw us joyously planted on the sandy/pebbled beach surrounded by lovely rock faces perfect for photos and generally having a bit of random beach fun.

We enjoyed the nature, the views, the sea breeze before working up an appetite and heading back to my mums thatched cottage garden for a BBQ and drinks.

My wedding guests, I'm sure had never been to a wedding like it, but in terms of making the most of a small wedding budget and still having a memorable day, we nailed it.

We saved money on travel (luckily we lived near the beach) transport (yay for pick-up trucks) and reception venue. With enough talented DIY photographers in the group, we had plenty of authentic natural photos to fill our wedding album.

Tropical Vintage Beach Heart Invitation SuiteThis was over twenty five years ago and while the marriage didn't last the memories of that day and my lovely guests and their gung-ho, go-along-with-it attitude has lasted.

If you're looking to save money on a wedding and yet want something memorable, don't be afraid to ditch the traditional idea of what a wedding day should entail (limos and champagne) and enjoy a fun day out at the beach, a park, a forest (depending upon where you live) and enjoy the natural beauty which is so abundant in the UK.
