Summer is here, and while for most people, that means cocktails and days at the beach, for others, it means something so much more: It’s wedding season. Peak wedding season is typically from May to October, with the summer months, like June, being some of the most popular. The warm weather and time off from work and school make this season perfect for gathering family and friends for a once-in-a-lifetime special event.


While the summer has always been a popular time to tie the knot, this summer could be even more popular. With a COVID-19 vaccine accessible and readily available, people are beginning to come out of their COVID hibernation. Weddings that were canceled or shelved because of the virus are now back in the works, and people are anxious to share special moments with one another again.


Whether you are looking for a little luxury or just want to find the perfect intimate setting for close family and friends away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a luxury yacht from Anita Dee Yacht Charters is the perfect venue for you. Take your wedding onto the water with a little help from us. Anita Dee Yacht Charters is Chicago’s premier luxury yacht rental group. Not convinced a yacht is the right venue for you? Check out the pros of getting married on a yacht this summer:


COVID Concerns 


Yes, the COVID-19 crisis is improving, but for people still worried or those that are at high risk, a yacht wedding may be the solution you have been looking for. A yacht is a self-contained little world out on the water. You have control over the guest list and can create an intimate affair with only your closest family and friends present. No strangers will wander through a giant hotel or banquet hall where you’re having your celebration, and random people aren’t coming and going. It’s just you, your guests, and our staff. Our yachts even have a complimentary bridal suite where the bride and her attendants can get ready in peace and luxury. A yacht could be your own private sanctuary away from the rest of the world.


One Venue is All You Need


With a yacht, there is no need to waste money on multiple venues. This is the perfect moving location for your wedding and reception. In addition, there aren’t the added worries of transporting people back and forth between locations. You could be married on the deck overlooking the sparkling water as the sun sets behind clouds painted red and gold. Maybe you’d like a cocktail hour on a separate part of the deck, overlooking a different scene. Then perhaps a reception and dancing on another part of the ship. The choices are yours, and you don’t have to feel limited because you are confined to one location. The entire lake and Chicago skyline is your location.


It Can Be All Inclusive 


Before you turn into a bridezilla running around trying to secure food, drinks, a location, the photographer, and everything else that comes with planning a wedding, stop and consider an inclusive yacht package. Not only does a yacht provide you with exclusivity and luxury, but it can also take the weight of thousands of decisions off your shoulders.


At Anita Dee Yacht Charters, we have hand-selected the finest Chicago catering, entertainment, and photography options to help you plan the perfect wedding. We’ve done the leg work for you. Just share your ideas with us, and we can help you plan the perfect occasion, minus the stress. From the food to the fun and even a champagne toast, we have you covered so you can focus your attention on more important things, like finding the perfect dress and starting your new life with the one you love.


Big or Small, a Yacht Can Fit Them All 


A yacht is no sailboat. Sometimes people are worried that the water vessel just won’t be big enough to accommodate the wedding of their dreams. At Anita Dee Yacht Charters, we have multiple luxury vessels that can accommodate the smallest and most intimate gathering or larger, tour-de-force sized parties.


The Anita Dee I is the perfect choice for smaller gatherings looking for sophisticated luxury and a more intimate setting. We say “smaller,” but the Anita Dee I is still a 90-foot vessel that can accommodate 120 passengers.


The Anita Dee II is a 400-foot, 400 passenger floating behemoth that boasts an elegant piano lounge, formal dining area, open observation deck, and even a helicopter pad. Your imagination is the only thing that can limit you. These vessels are equipped to handle wedding parties, large or small, and you won’t have to limit your guest list (unless you really want to).


Your wedding is a one-of-a-kind event, and you’ve waited a long time to make it special. While celebrating this moment with family and friends is all that matters, here at Anita Dee Yacht Charters, we think you deserve something not only memorable but monumental. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure your special day is just that. Special. Something that you will remember and cherish forever: the people, the faces, and the love.


Stop running yourself ragged trying to pin down all the details on your own. Turn to someone who can do it for you and allow you the peace and tranquility to just enjoy your day.
