  1. Thank you ladies! I haven't been on the site in a while...lol...learning how to be a good wife @brookph23 Did you guys decide on the Oasis and whether you're going to get married on the ship or on the island? Hope all the planning is going well brides to be!
  2. Hi Arch713 Great question as I'm sure most have had to deal with this. At first, hubby and I weren't sure and when we met our Travel agent she said that she had coordinated a February cruise wedding and the couple had a great turnout. For us, being based in the Toronto area that's the dead of winter and people want to get out of the snow, slush and winter doldrums and so it was a good decision for us to go with that suggestion. Happy planning!
  3. @Jackie Appleby (Sorry for very delayed response.) Thank you and CONGRATS! No we didn't do open bar in the main dining room on our wedding day. We didn't plan to and it never came up that we should. However, for the reception I do think drinks are expected. When we were pricing it out for the oasis there were 3 options charged per person per hour, for example house liquor, brand name liquor and premium liquor. We were going to use one of these, but God was good and when we booked our cruise we used some of our GAP (points RC gives when you book a cruise, we had 6 points) and chose a cocktail p
  4. Thank you ladies so much! @emilyj Our reception was back on the ship. Our wedding ceremony was scheduled for 2pm (ship time), but began 2:30ish. We made it back to the Oasis dock around 4pm or possibly a little later. Took tons of pics on the dock with my hubby, bridesmaids and wedding guests...and strangers lol. Went back to our stateroom to freshen up (took a few pics in our room and on our balcony), went to dinner in the main dining room (took pics in Central Park on the way there). Our group of 41 sailing guests had tables close together in a section of the dining room but for the wedding
  5. Hi there HK! I believe the Embassy Suites also has a cocktail hour in the evening (I think before dinner) where their provide drinks for their guests. Maybe you could utilize this time and have a meet and mingle for your guests. I don't think it's cheap to have giant subs or pizza as everyone should be considerate that your wedding will be the main expense. I think evening is ideal time to plan something. Afternoon is too early, but with the wedding the next day you don't want this event to be too late either. Also, it is hard to plan something like this. We had the thought to do something pre
  6. Thank you ladies! @goodtoglow I love ur profile picture. I see you're a Canadian girl who got married in St. Thomas too - we rock eh! :cool: @kks2012 Yay welcome to the "wife club" I hope we get to see some of your amazing pics. @shanandcal Have you decided on a cruise yet? It is such an exciting time! Congrats
  7. I liked the idea of an OOT bag, but really wasn't sure about it considering we had a lot to travel with already. My hubby and I decided to give everyone a welcome aboard package in a letter sized envelope (8x10 inches I think). We made it like real mail with stamps we made with our wedding logo and put everyone's room info as the mailing address. Inside we put a welcome letter explaining that each room had a $50 on board credit, a door sign that they were "sail-a-brating" our wedding, a fridge magnet that they cruised with us for our wedding and a pack of gravol. It was really well received. A
  8. Thank you kks2012 The cruise photographer should do a great job. They are doing it everyday and should be pros. ...And (if you like) give your camera to someone you trust to get some additional shots of your own. Wow your wedding is just around the corner. By the way your wedding website looks great and the proposal story was soooo sweet. Congrats!
  9. Thanks Ladies @ kimbrrlee Our wedding time was set for 2pm island time (which was 1pm ship time). We did not know there would be a time difference until the night before our wedding. :eek: :eek:This meant that my bridesmaids 9:45am hair appointments on the island definitely would be behind schedule since we wouldn't be docking until 10am island time (9am ship time). Because of this by the time I got to the salon after a very quick visit to the courthouse (they were great and we were the only one's there getting marriage paperwork done and they even let us take pics of us signing our marriage
  10. Thank you tkuzma! We are still anxiously waiting to receive our pictures However, Elisha posted some on her blog which makes us even more anxious to see the rest. I hope you can see them from this link, you may have to copy and paste it: http://thatstalk.elishaorin.com/?p=6102
  11. Hi BDW fam! We did it!!!! My husband (oh I love saying that) and I did a cruise wedding via Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. We got married in St. Thomas on Valentine's Day, 2012 on Lime Tree Beach. We used Island Bliss Weddings and my 5 bridesmaids and I got our hair and makeup done at Sugar and Spice Artistry on the island. We also hired Elisha Orin to do our photography. It was amazing and we all looked amazing I learned soooo much during our 1 year and 4 months engagement, had many emotional roller coaster rides, severed some friendships and also grew others. At the end of it all, it
  12. @Kimbrrlee, I look forward to hearing what others thought. It sounds like you should be fine for your group to do 150 Central Park and you do have plenty of time for that. We didn't really make serious movements on group space until everyone made their final payments so we knew our exact numbers, but like you we were inquiring and getting ideas of the possibilities. I really hope Dazzles is good tho.
  13. Thanks CruiseWedding13. We are going with the steel pan!
  14. @kks2012 Great suggestion. And FI and I called RCI to verify what we were entitled to...and from what they lady I spoke with told me we were doing alright (minus the whole private room mess). We got some of the fare money covered for our guest count too and did as you and your beau did although we had to add a good amount cause we went for a balcony. We are also giving everyone a $50 onboard credit and having cocktail party (detailed below) as perks. So we made progress...Thank God! @CruiseWedding13 TAs are supposed to be really helpful and know a lot. And at first mine seemed that way
