    Hi all, I am new here and my name is Sandi. I was looking for someone to talk to about my DW, which will be held on the Princess Cruise Line Eastern Caribbean cruise in August 2007.

    Greg and I have been together for 16 years this Feb. 14. He finally proposed to me Dec. 13, 2007.

    We (meaning me) decided to have a DW because of the cost of hosting a wedding in my state. It is extremely expensive. When I found out about the cost of a DW, I said that's what we are going to do.

    I am experiencing some quilt, because of the cost to my guest. I couldn't think of another way to have my dream wedding without sending us to the poor house.

    I am rambling. Just wanted to say hello.

      Hello and welcome. Try not to feel to guilty, as long as you dont presure your guests into comming than the choice is theres. And if they decide to go they also get a great cruise/vacation out of it. They arent just paying money for your wedding but a vacation also!

        Welcome to the forum. With any DW there will be some people who will try to make you feel guilty about not having it locally. But at the end of the day it's what's important to you and your FI. Just try to remember that.

          Thank you for the warm welcome. You are so correct and I know this, but there is still that voice. Everytime I think about cancelling it, I think of what a wise person told me.

            You should listen to her. I'm only going to have 10 people at our wedding, in fact non of my family will be going for a ton of different reasons. Yes I'm alittle bummed but I would be happy getting married at our location even if it was just Cain and I.

                Thanks. Yep. We already call ourselves husband and wife.

                The marriage is more of a formality, plus I want my wedding. I don't even have to change my last name. We have the same. Real easy and sweet.

                    Welcome Sandi! I'm pretty new here myself. Great choice on the cruise wedding. You shouldn't feel so guilty. You have to do what's best for your wedding. The guests you invite will show up because they really want to be a part of YOUR celebration. Good luck with your planning!
