Apparently there’s a new trend in wedding traditions. After a couple gets married, instead of stashing the white dress and tux in the back of the closet, they partake in a crazy activity and “trash the dress.” We had two couples from Napa, California join us for parasailing this week with just that in mind!
The party disembarked from a Carnival cruise ship Monday morning and tied the knot on land. After the two ceremonies, the couples, along with the wedding party, hopped aboard a Fury parasail boat for some fun.
The first couple was dressed in traditional wedding attire. The bride wore a flowing white dress and veil and the groom sported a white tuxedo, coral colored tie, and matching boutonniere. The second couple was ready for the water! The bride wore a white bikini with “Just Married” scrawled on the bottoms and the groom rocked white and pastel board shorts with an undershirt and matching Kangol hat.
The whole party was a riot and everyone had a great time! At Fury, we’ve hosted many Key West weddings and receptions aboard our catamarans for a sunset sail, but this was definitely the first time we’ve taken the bride and groom parasailing in their full garb!
