  1. Congrats to all...... From: Stacy & Brian 10-22-08 Ocho Rios If you are getting married in Jamaica…. Our official marriage license came about two months after the wedding. Listed on our official marriage license they give the “Condition of the Groom” and the “Condition of the Bride” as they come to be married. Next to “Condition of the Groom” they listed “Bachelor,” next to “Condition of the Bride” they listed “Spinster.” SPINSTER!!!!!!...... on the Marriage License! My husband likes to tell everyone that he saved me from a life of being a spinster. I just laugh. Good Luck to you all. Relax, and enjoy. You are in for the time of your life!

    Any other cruise brides out there?

    Another bit of advice….. If you are getting married on the ship, when you meet your photographer tell him/her you want a group photo. Your day goes so fast and after the reception everyone scatters to do their own thing. Make an announcement… “Before you all go… lets get a group photo.” This was the first photos that our photographer shot after the wedding. We took it on the stairs with almost all of our party (my husband’s brother and wife didn’t hear the announcement and took off for the island, we didn’t get any shots with them… but that is another story). I love our group photo. I got 8X10s and gave one to our parents, aunts, and many of the guest traveling with us.

    Any other cruise brides out there?

    It has been a long time from my last post in this thread. I am now a married woman!!! I’m the bride that was worried that her 54 guest wouldn’t fit in the chapel on the Mariner of the Seas that holds 40 people max. Well I fudged the total number of guests and provided our wedding coordinator with a total of 40 and we ended up in the Chapel. I loved the Chapel and everyone fit just fine…. We even had some room to spare. All that worry for nothing. We were using Royal Romance (TWE) to handle the plans and they were not the best but OK in the end. We did the wedding in port in the middle of the cruise. I would recommend this over the stressful departure day. The day before the wedding, we went to the beach and relaxed. It was nice. Few mishaps…. The wedding coordinator that TWE provided was totally crappy. She was a local from Jamaica. First thing… she mixed up the music and played “Here comes the bride†when the ministers went down. I was like “hey, that is my song.†Then she turned it off and played the correct song but the problem was that she never changed the song back for me. So I didn’t get to walk down to “Here comes the bride….†This makes me a little sad when I think about it. Also she kept talking and talking… she became center of attention at my wedding. I hated her for that and will not watch our wedding video because of it. The cake was the wrong cake as well (but it was very yummy, so no problem). She also made my dad make a speech at the wedding when he didn’t want to. I complained about it later to TWE and all they could offer was free photo announcements. I really didn’t need them but I took them. Anyways, I tend to block out that part from my memories because everything else was just AWSOME!!!!! Other than that the wedding and cruise was the best! I loved being a BRIDE…. I LOVED IT!!!!!! I love being a cruise bride. Everyone on the ship was so great. The minister they provided was really great. He had that cool Jamaican accent and a great speaking voice, and was so very nice. After the wedding and reception my husband and I left the ship (in our dress and tux) to get some photos outside and there was a line of people waiting to get on and they all cheered. The Chapel on the ship is so pretty. Our photos were so great (I bought the disk, and sadly I had to pay $1,000 for it but they threw in 5X7s of all 250+ photos they took). We had another reception at home and it was so great. I wish I could do it all again. I was a little nervous about having all of our family members with us on the trip but this was great too. We were so busy and the ship is so big. It made it really nice to pass our people in the halls and find them in the bars, pool, etc. Everyone had such a great time. I was such a nervous wreck about the planning but I was happy and relaxed on my wedding day (my parents were a mess, which makes me laugh to think about it). To Future Cruise Brides….. you are in for the time of your life!!!! Stay relaxed. Go with the flow, enjoy your moment.
  5. Does anyone know of a font that has a Sand Dollar image font included? I'm looking for one for a monogram and I can't find one I like. Please help!

    Looking for cute ways to include pics of DW

    We got married on a cruise. For our AHR we used the names of all the places that we visited for tables instead of numbers. Then we had made bifold cards with the names and pictures from that location inside. We had a sign at the name table that said "Find your destination." It was cute
  7. Ours said something like...... Brian and Stacy are about to depart on a romantic trip that is only the start..... We are getting married! Please join us for a reception when we return at... place and time.
  8. We need ideas for polls on Wedding Website. Our guests are really enjoying the polls on our wedding website. We get so many votes and it is so cool. We have already done the “Who is going to cry first?†“What should the groom wear?†“Where should we honeymoon?†Everyone on this forum is so creative… I’m sure you can give me some ideas for other polls. I'm out of help and could use some new ideas.
  9. I love your Rhyme. We were not so creative.... Here is what we wrote: "Thank You for Sharing Our Special Day. Please Visit the Photo Booth for a Special "One of a Kind" Favor from Brian and Stacy." Then in smaller letters: "Visit the booth as often as you like. It is open from 6:30 to 10:30 this evening. All photos taken from the booth will also be made available for downloading online at www.shutterbooth.com" Like I said... not so creative but it matches our invites and logo and looks nice.
  10. That is so cool! We are getting a photo both for our at home reception and we made a sign for the tables. We got these Peel & Stick Easels from Photofrog that hold 4X6 photos and I made up a sign in Power Point (its cute, matches our reception invites) and made a photograph out of it for the tables. I will post the file later (I don't have it on the computer that I am on now). We are using ShutterBooth for our photo booth. Who are you using? I just think that the photobooth is going to be super cool and I hope everyone has fun with it.
  11. I'm a cruise bride using TWE and would highly recomend for you to use an outside vendor. It will be less expensive, trust me. For us it is too late because we booked it before we realized we had other options but I really wish that we would have went outside.

    Best Cruises for Weddings

    Great Info. I'm a cruise bride getting married on Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas in October. The price for the packages that were in the article are a little off. I'm sure it is because they just came out with a new brochure but the prices are higher and you get less. I have the details if anyone is interested I will post.
  13. Oh, I love that idea of the Thank you in the sand. I'm totally going to use it. What a wonderful photo!

    Scporcelli: Thanks for the update on the chapel on the RC Super Ships. I have been wanting to speak with someone that has been in one. I'm so happy that you said that you think 50 people will fit in the chapel. I have been so worried about it. I'm excited now..... and very excited that you said the chapel was nice.
