  1. The luggage tag loops, packing lists and playing cards have been sold. Everything else is still available. Thanks!
  2. It's been almost a year, but better late than never! I have a $100 gift certificate for BonitaJ.com that I won from BestWeddingSites.com. It's good until 8/15/2011. I have no need for wedding jewelry, so I want to sell it. It's an e-certificate, so I just have to forward you the e-mail with the code. $75. 79 Clear 6" Loops for luggage tags $7 including shipping *SOLD* 8 Mini Packs of Tissues $3.50 including shipping Disposable Wedding Camera $4 each including shipping Basketball Lanyard & Football Lanyard $3.00 each including shipping Travel themed playing cards in cases $2 each including shipping *SOLD* Packing Lists $1.50 each including shipping *SOLD* I've never sold on here, and haven't been here in a while, but have 100% positive feedback on e-bay and can provide my ID. I will be listing these on there soon if I don't sell them here.
  3. For our OOT bags, we used black drawstring backpacks, and almost all of our sailing guests used them in the ports. We also had customized water bottles made from discountmugs.com, and those were a big hit too. Most of us kept refilling them with water, iced tea or lemonade and carried them with us all day.
  4. I ordered them from Oriental Trading. We got 24 tins for $19.99. You have to put the personalized stickers on yourself, but it's not hard to get them centered.
  5. We did personalized mint tins for favors. We had about 10 extra and ended up with none left at the end of the reception! We were glad we remembered to leave 2 at home for ourselves! We also did OOT bags for our sailing guests (not all of our guests were sailing).
  6. What does he want to do that he thinks he won't be able to do on a cruise? There are activities going on all day, there's bars, the casino, pools, food 24/7. We were on the Carnival Miracle, and they played mostly hip hop in the club after midnight, but they also did 50's-90's music in there earlier before midnight. They had shows and karaoke every night, one of the bars had a live band every night (stayed open late....we went there when the club got too crowded). We both fell in love with cruising, and we're planning on doing the Miracle's Bahama's & Grand Turk itinerary next year (did Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Grand Turk this time). Find out everything your ship and each port has to offer, and try convincing him after you have all that info...I don't think it will be too hard after that...there's too much to do to get bored! The Miracle is one of Carnival's smaller ships, and in 8 days we didn't even see the whole thing!
  7. Thank you! The wedding was like a dream...just perfect! I just posted my review :-)
  8. I'm copying the review I posted on Cruise Critic....we were married aboard the Carnival Miracle on 8/19...it was definitely our dream wedding! Â Here's the review! Â We're back! Everything was amazing and we're sooo happy we decided to do a cruise wedding! We thought most of our guests would be late (they usually are) so we told everyone to get to the port at 10:30 instead of 11, the time we were told to be there. To our surprise, we got there around 10:25 and almost all of our guests were already there waiting! We all had to wait for Aisha, the day of WC from A Wedding For You (NYC does not use The Wedding Experience), to get there before we could start boarding, but she told us she would get there at 11 so we hung out with our guests until then. Well, at 11 am, she still hadn't arrived so Carnival brought us through to priority boarding. Aisha met us about 10 minutes later. Day-Of WC from A Wedding for You - C She did help things run smoothly, I guess, but I suspect it was more the Shipboard coordinator, Alexandra, than Aisha. I had several guests comment on her attitude after she left and she is standing with her arms crossed looking like it's torture for her to be there in our wedding video. I didn't realize this at the time or I wouldn't have given her a tip. Shipboard Coordinator, Alexandra - A++++ Alexandra was fabulous! She really took care of us. She made sure we all had whatever food and drinks we wanted, took the time to talk to each one of my guests and really get to know all of us. One of my guests stepped on the back of my dress and my bustle broke and she was right there with a safety pin to fix it. She came to visit us at dinner every night and kept us informed on all the things going on around the ship. It was like she was part of our family by the end of the trip, and we miss her already! Photographer, Albert - A+ Albert was awesome! Our pictures look like they came out of a magazine! He sent us a postcard invitation to come look at the rest of the pictures, and at the top of it was one of our pictures. It took us a few minutes to realize it was us...that's how good the pictures came out! We thought some of the positions he had us in were awkward and uncomfortable, but he knows exactly what he's doing! Videographer, Vlad - A At first we weren't going to do the video, but we are so glad we decided to get it. Everything goes by so quickly, so it's nice to have the memories on dvd. Ceremony in the City Room, A+ We sent a ceremony script to A Wedding for You about 2 weeks before the wedding, so the officiant already knew what wanted. We did have a few minutes to meet with her individually before the ceremony to sign the marriage license and speak with her briefly. She was such a sweet woman, and she really gave us a beautiful ceremony. We chose 2 readings and did the unity candle ceremony. Everything was perfect. We stayed back a few minutes to take bridal party and family pictures, while the rest of our guests went to the reception. Reception in Frankenstein's Lab, A+ Even though there's a huge Frankenstein in the room, it didn't take away from the atmosphere. The cake was on the opposite side of the room, and the food was on the back wall, so most of our pictures don't have the Frankenstein in it. We have a few with his feet, but it's all part of our unique wedding! The food was delicious, and the cake was the best cake we've ever had! As soon as we walked in to the reception, we were announced and went right into our first dance. We then did the father/daughter and mother/son dances. We did the cake cutting and champagne toast next. We had the DJ choose the music for the cake cutting, garter toss and bouquet toss. He did a great job with the choice of music, and even took requests. Our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
  9. Â It wasn't rushed at all! Everything went smoothly and we were able to enjoy the ceremony and reception without feeling like we had to cram everything in. We got to do our dances, the garter/bouquet tosses, best man/maid of honor speeches, cake cutting, champagne toast, eat....everything we wanted to do.
  10. If you drink alcohol or soda, cruises are not all inclusive....you have to pay for them on board. I also don't know of any cruises that would be couples only. If you're looking specifically for all inclusive, couples only, maybe a resort would be a better option for you. We were married on a cruise, and loved it, but we did spend a few hundred dollars on alcohol in the 8 days we were on the cruise.
  11. We were just married on the Carnival Miracle, and our pictures came out great! Â
  12. I'm having an embarkation day wedding....TOMORROW! Our wedding will be at 1 p.m. but we have to be at the port at 11. I think the only thing that feels rushed is the reception because it can only be an hour or an hour and a half depending on which package you choose....because your non-sailing guests have to get off the ship before it leaves. We'll be back on the 27th, so I'll come back and let you know how it went!
  13. We're getting married in NY on the ship before the cruise leaves, so we'll be married in 9 days!
