Planning your Key West cruise ship wedding:
- Getting married on a cruise is fun and Key West is a wonderful choice for your wedding. Key West is a very popular destination for cruise ships. We're tropical, get very little rain (even during the rainy season, June-November) and we are a small, safe, secure U.S. port.
- This link to Caribe Nautical provides a schedule of all the cruise ships that will make a port call in Key West. There are 3 piers that all the ships use. There is Mallory Square, Pier B at the Westin Hotel and Resort and The Outer Mole (which is on a U.S. Naval Base). These 3 piers cater to all of the cruise ships that visit Key West and they are only about a mile from each other.
- Mallory Square and the Westin are only 3 to 4 blocks from the Monroe County Court House which issues marriage licenses. Transportation is provided by a Key West Trolley or Conch Tour Train for ships that dock at the Outer Mole to their main depot on Front St. at Mallory Square, the ride is about 1 mile and takes about 10 minutes. (Remember Key West is only 1.5 miles by 4 miles, so nothing is very far from anything else.)
Check the Caribe Nautical link (they are the ships agent in Key West and provide docking services) to see if a ship will arrive in Key West on the day you are planning your wedding. Once you book the cruise, we can begin planning your wedding or vow renewal. Conch Concierge services include 15 years of planning Key West weddings, I assure you these are among the very best offers available, both in terms of value and style.
THE PERFECT KEY WEST CRUISE SHIP WEDDING...
- The "Romance" includes the same exceptional services as the "Barefoot", but I add pick-up and return for 2 from your hotel or cruise ship and perform the ceremony anytime of day.
The "ROMANCE" is the perfect ceremony if you are arriving by cruise ship or are new to Key West and appreciate the personal service and convenience of a ride to the ceremony site. We spend a little more time together than the simple, tasteful "Barefoot" ceremony and this allows for additional photography at your inn or near the ship.
You might also consider upgrading to a day room while on land, to get ready, relax, maybe have your hair and make-up done before the ceremony. Also consider adding wedding flowers, perhaps a harp, violin or steel drum musician, loose flower petals, lunch reservations, pedicab or an antique Bentley or Rolls Royce limousine. One call (305.292.2292) or email confirms all of these details for you to enjoy a truly memorable wedding that you will treasure forever. Delivered in a thoughtful, relaxed style that has been my trademark over the years as Conch Concierge.
If this sounds like what you've been looking for, please call me at 305.292.2292 to begin planning your Key West wedding/vows renewal ceremony.
