So you don’t care about getting your dress wet?  Cause I would think paddling onto the beach, you are gonna get the bottom of your dress wet as you are exiting the boat.

@nursemel:  I have the same concern.

As a formerly avid kayaker, I have to say that there is no way you’ll be able to get out of a kayak/canoe gracefully and without getting wet. You won’t be able to paddle all the way up to the shore. At best, you’ll have to wade through knee deep water before you get to the aisle. There’s a good chance the kayak will wobble when you try to get out. Also, you’ll have to designate someone (who is willing to get wet) to drag the kayak out of the water.

i just don’t think I would personally risk falling out and getting completely wet on my big day. Just my two cents.

I’m all for grand entrances (my husband and I rode in on a camel), but have to agree with the others.  There’s a lot of ways this could go wrong and not go quite the way you expected.

I’d also worry about making your girls row.  Have they rowed before?  It’s not as easy as it looks.  Someone needs to know how to steer.

How about exiting on the boat? And having a mini TTD session? (are you or could you be wearing a second dress for the reception?)
