We are getting off the ship at Montego Bay and having the wedding on the beach. No sure where. Going through Tropical Weddings with Almarie. Then after the beach wedding going to have mini reception at one of the beach restaurants (the Pier or Groovy Grouper). Still working on the kinks. So far I have about 26 people coming to the Cruise. I didn't expect that many but I still keep getting calls and more may be coming!

I just started to work on the OOT and I am making a newspaper like information guide filled with ship info, wedding info, who is on the cruise and how we know them, and fun trivia about us too.

We are having a Flip Flop theme wedding with aqua blue/red colors.

My FI has two children (10 & cool.gif and they are helping plan the wedding like they want a sand ceremony and helped pick the colors and theme. They are a lot of fun.

I have a question for Cruise brides, did you have a meet and greet on the ship?

Thanks Corinnalyn! We did a meet and greet at the hotel the night before the cruise. We met in the piano bar and bought drinks for everyone.

My plan is to gave a Meet and Greet Cocktail party. My only issue is that they dont do parties on days that aren't full sea days so I have to find out if embarkation day is considered a full sea day. If not we will have it the next day. I am giving out my OOT bags at the party as well.

 

To any cruise brides getting married in St Thomas where are you having ur reception. We're looking at the place called Wikkid and a few other beachy rest. We wanted Hook Line and Sinker but they couldnt accommodate our group of only 40ish ppl.. We don't want a formal place. Any ideas would be helpful.

Hi

Embarkation isn't considered a full sea day. There will be an all ship sail away party out on the pool deck but there are lots of small bars that maybe they could let you reserve for an hour or so during a specific time. The first sea day (during the day) is also a good time to ask to reserve a place as they often only being used for children's activities and seminars by the spa or maybe art auction. My husband and I worked on the Carnival Freedom. Enjoy!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
