April 2009 Cruise Brides: Check In

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

 

Wondering if I'm the only cruise bride getting married in April. Looking to see how we're doing as we close in on the 2 month mark. I'm doing good but still got alot to do. The first thing I have to do is stop buying every cute thing I see. Aparently I've forgotten that I and the guest have to travel with this stuff. smile29.gif

 

BTW: I'm on RCCL Freedom of the Seas. Embarkation day wedding.

I guess it is you and me!

RCCL Monarch of the Seas embarkation day too.

I am starting to get nervous about the timing of everything. I have search here and on other boards to see what timing is during the recepetion but no luck.

Tamster I've looked on cruise critics for more details as brides come back after the fact and post on there. We are doing a two hour reception and our rep told us that no matter what it will be over aound 3pm so that non-sailing guests can deboard. She also informed me that most weddings start around 1pm. This is for Miami though I doubt if it will be drasticly diff at Cape Canaveral.

 

I'm getting nervous too and hope that things dont go crazy wrong. We havent even finalized enhancements. Have you; which ones did you decide on?

We are doing the two hour lunch buffet with DJ and a 12" cake. I am bringing my own flowers so I have more say over them. My stepmother's best friend does flower arrangements and she is arranging all the flowers for us. I only spent a little over $100 for all the flowers (2 boquets, 5 boutinerres, 3 mothers). That is the cost of a boquet for me with RCCL! I am getting my hair done at a local salon. I am going next week for a trial. I really hope they do a good job.

I am calling today to finalize all the enhancements. But I am really not doing that many.

What enhancements are you doing?

I was going to add flowers for everyone (2 mothers, 2 fathers, 1 groomsmen, 1 Matron). Also a cake but the size depends on our final guest count - the RSVPs are coming in as we speak. An additional hour of photography and the Videography package. I thought about the DJ but we just decided to do CD's or see if we can hook our Ipod up.

 

That's pretty much it. Just typing it here has made me realize the cost of all these additons. Whew....

I got my finalized bill the other day. It is not as cheap I thought it would be but ALOT of other people spend ALOT more money.

The funny thing about the whole thing is I picked a cruise wedding because I thought it would be simple and cheap and it has not been either. I don't think I will regret it but just everyone has a lot of questions.

Got my final info last week and boy are you right about the cost. We're happy with our selections though.
