It’s been about three years since those words were spoken by then-president Barack Obama in the Rose garden at the White House. On June 26, 2015 he spoke to a nation that saw the institution of marriage opened to all Americans for the first time (something that was made legal and went into effect in the state of Florida six months earlier on Jan. 6), and that is also the year Watermark brought you its inaugural Wedding guide. In the time since the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land and Watermark readers got their first look at a list of LgBTQ-friendly wedding vendors in Central Florida and Tampa Bay, hundreds of thousands of LgBTQ couples have tied the knot and poured millions of dollars into the economy, and it doesn’t look like we are slowing down anytime soon. Here we present to you our fourth annual Watermark Wedding guide to assist you in planning your nuptials and to ease

Continued from pg.17 plan to say “I do.” A bit of flexibility is going to be needed here. Maybe pick a month or a season you want to get married and then see what ships are running during that time frame. You also want to make sure the ship is heading where you want to spend your time and money. Some places are more same-sex friendly than others (Malta, good. Bermuda, bad.) Cruise Lines can have different ships registered in different countries, so when picking the ship make sure it is registered in a country that will recognize same-sex marriages or your “I do’s” may be purely symbolic. Once the date and ship are in place, the next decision to make is at what point during the cruise you want to do the ceremony? Your first option, and the most popular for big families, is to get married on the ship during embarkation day. This will allow you to invite both sailing and non-sailing guests to the wedding. This option will allow you to bring up to 50 nonsailing guests on board for just the ceremony and a small cake and champagne reception. Another option is to get married while the ship is at sea. This option requires that anyone attending the wedding also join you on the cruise, but it also opens up the possibility that you can be married by the ship’s captain as the sun sets behind
