How to organize a pirate style wedding?
When organizing a wedding, like any other event, the first question arises about the venue. For a real pirate-style wedding experience to be truly stunning, rent a pirate ship for your wedding. Let it be a small boat, a schooner, a frigate, the main thing at the wedding is to really feel the taste of the sea, sway on the waves, feel like a part of a hot pirate company.
If you live far from the pond or there is no way to rent a ship, then a banquet room is suitable for a pirate wedding. It should be properly decorated for a pirate ship or tavern, as shown in the photo, and with all its furnishings to hint that this is not a simple wedding, so there will be a lot of surprises and surprises.
In order to customize the invitees in a certain way, it is worth taking care of invitation cards, making them relevant to the theme of the wedding celebration. We offer you to make your own wedding invitation cards. Let it not be ordinary wedding cards that everyone is used to, but pirate whistles wrapped in yellowed paper and tied with twine. For greater importance, you can clog them in champagne bottles.
Decorate pirate wedding invitations with shells, sea pebbles, sand.
Other attributes are also used to make invitations in a pirate style: old maps, large home-made coins with the names of guests invited to the wedding (they fill an old pirate chest at the entrance).
The image of the bride and groom
The groom at the wedding plays the role of the leader of the pirates, therefore, like a real pirate king, he should look like this: a luxurious golden or black classic camisole, a white loose shirt, tie, frill or headscarf. Black trousers, tall sailor boots, a pirate hat, cocked hat or bandana will complete the look. And confirms that he is a real robber, attached to the belt with a saber or pistol. Optional accessories - pirate headband, earring in one ear.
The bride's outfit leaves room for imagination.
- The first option is a rich lady kidnapped by pirates princess. For a pirate wedding, a beautiful white dress of any variation, a round hat or a cocked hat is suitable.
- The second option is a girl from the same pirate gang, wearing a short leather skirt, a sailor's vest, high boots, a cocked hat. Complement the costume with a wide fan.
- Bridal bouquet decorated with seashells.
Pirate style banquet room decor
To your friends at the wedding plunged into the pirate atmosphere, you need to work hard on the decor of the banquet hall. Let it look like a real pirate ship, mysterious, unpredictable, where danger will inevitably await. For this purpose, use a variety of pirate props:
- hanging cable ladders,
- pirate networks,
- sail curtains,
- vintage cards with encrypted treasure location,
- traditional piastre chest.
A pirate-style wedding will be colorful if the hall is decorated with an aquarium with algae, live fish, preferably medium and large sizes. Those invited to the wedding will be enchanted by a living talking macaw parrot, who boldly saddled their shoulder. If there is no living parrot, you can use inflatable parrots at the wedding, as well as make a palm tree, fish, crabs from balloons or other improvised materials.
Decorate the tables with thick candle ends, shells, starfish, small boats. Pour alcohol into large bottles, label «Rum», which you can print yourself. A good decoration of the hall in a pirate style will be black and white photographs attached to a hanging fishing net. Photos can be images of friends or relatives, made-up by pirates, shot the day before, or just scenes from pirate-themed movies.
You can arrange a banquet room for the upcoming pirate wedding with your own hands, but if you do not have free time, it is better to use the services of a designer.

Task: to catch a children's lifebuoy from a water tank with the help of a personal anchor - an aluminum spoon with a rope tied. Whoever cope with the task faster will win. To the cry of the host: «The wave has gone», participants must raise their legs so as not to soak. After all, it turns out that it was a competition for the hairiest leg.
- «The richest pirate». The host asks: «Who do you think will manage finances in the newly-made pirate family after the wedding??» The opinions of the pirates differ. Then he offers to find out who better knows how to count money - sailors or sailors. The task is to correctly count the piastres scattered across the floor. Participants count and write the amount on a piece of paper. Winners are recognized as the most greedy - they know how to count money. Losers are the happiest, they never consider them.
- «The most eloquent pirate». Two men compete. They are invited to tie the sea knots and at the same time announce the wishes of the bride and groom. Each node is one wish. Then the leader offers the pirates to exchange sea knots, and race to untie them. The winner is the one who does it faster. For every untied knot, punishment is again a wish to the young.

- «Most dexterous». The pirates are divided into two teams, preparing for a little brawl. The members of each team designate a person for themselves from the side of the opponent, whom they must grab and fasten to a chair. At the same time, they guard their player so that he is not captured. When the process of tying up the victim is completed, the leader makes an unexpected turn and informs the second part of the rules - the pirate team wins, quickly freeing the one whom they tied so carefully.

How beautiful to end the evening
The beautiful ending of a pirate wedding will be a huge themed cake made in the form of a boat, a pirate treasure chest, a skull with bones. Leading sell pieces of cake for the piastres beloved by all pirates. Money goes to newlyweds income.
At the end of a pirate banquet, the bride throws her bouquet to unmarried girls: the one who catches him will play the next wedding. We offer men to try their luck - let the groom abandon the fishing net to unmarried pirates, maybe some friend is lucky.
The pirate-style wedding ends with a solemn oath of love and fidelity.
- The boatswain tells us that we are already very close to our goal - the island «Family happiness». Why don't we see him? According to ancient legend, only truly loving hearts can see him and take possession of a pirate treasure that provides eternal family happiness. I ask the groom (name) and the bride (name) if you can now swear love to each other in front of the whole pirate company, in the face of the whole world?
“I promise you, my love, that I will always love you, protect you from all dangers, do everything so that you do not know grief.” I will be worthy of your love. Believe me, I swear to be faithful and faithful to you all my life, you are the only one in my heart. I love you!
“I promise you, beloved, that I will love, forgive, take care of you, I will do my best to be worthy of your love.” I will become a faithful guardian of the family hearth, faithful spouse, reliable friend to you. We will be together while our hearts beat. I love you!
The chief of the Indians from the island enters the hall «Family happiness», silently, with a bow, hands the young casket. They open it, take out an ancient scroll, read out:
- Only truly loving hearts can find an island in the middle of the oceans «Family happiness». Our tribe with this scroll reveals to the most worthy pirate gentlemen (the names of the bride and groom) an ancient prophecy. Only two lovers of love, united by their own will with one desire, are able to find true happiness. But this is not enough. Relatives and friends with their warmth should protect this family hearth after the wedding, then the prophecy will come true. It all depends on you!
The bride and groom turn to the guests:
- Yes, happiness is in our hands, because with us you are our closest people. Together with you, in one friendly team, we completed the search for the island «Family happiness», made sure that together we are not afraid of icebergs or the ninth rampart. With such personnel, we are ready to sail after the wedding on any long-haul flights. We put our signature under a valuable scroll. For you, our dear, we launch a pirate salute!
