Are you planning a destination wedding? If so, you may want to think about Bermuda — especially if you live in the Northeast megalopolis between Boston, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.
According to Rachel Fuhrtz, the Revenue & Reservations Manager at Bermuda’s only adult-only resort, the Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, “Bermuda is quietly becoming a secret hit for brides and grooms in pursuit of a tropical and romantic destination wedding that is close to home on the East Coast of the United States.”
Private yacht charter operators on the island have also seen an increase in business.
“Over the past few years we have seen a steady uptick in private charters for wedding parties,” Denis Owen of the private yacht charter UberVida said. “Our sunset cruises and snorkeling charters have both been popular among visitors.”
Due to this demand, Miami-resident and Bermuda-raised John Gallo, launched Thinking of Bermuda, a full-service travel company with a one-stop wedding planning service.
“We want to make planning a destination wedding in Bermuda easy by assisting with the booking of airline tickets, hotels, and cruises, as well as introduce brides and grooms to the best yachts, locations, wedding planners, and more,” John Gallo said.
Bermuda attracts numerous brides and grooms to its pink hued beaches, lush gardens, and breathtaking seascape views each year.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Norwegian Breakaway, started its 7 day voyages from New York, New York to Bermuda on May 12th, 2013. According to John, Thinking of Bermuda has seen a steady increase in people getting married on the island and coming in on the Norwegian Breakaway.
John added, “Cruises give brides and grooms the opportunity to share in the generous bonuses and credits most cruise lines offer for booking group travel with them, and Thinking of Bermuda makes it a point to find the best deals and pass those savings onto the customer.”
