Pre Cruise wedding ceremony

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am wondering if anyone had their wedding ceremony in Miami or Ft Lauderdale prior to boarding the cruise? I am leaving from Ft Lauderdale.

I've looked at getting married on one of the Carribean islands however they are very pricey. This may be a better alternative cost wise.

 

Would love to hear from you.

 

Thanks

I am getting married on the port of Fort Lauderdale before my cruise leaves. I wanted to get married on the beach in the caribbean, but it would have taken some of my guests out of attending the wedding. I have guests who are cruising with us and also guests who are just coming for the wedding. The wedding is at 1:00 pm and they will depart the ship before we sail at four.

Actually, if you don't want to do anything with the cruise line, click on the link below:

They perform weddings at there location and they are located in the Ft. Lauderdale area. A friend of mine got married their two weeks ago here, right before departing on RCCL ship out of Ft. Lauderdale. Hope this helps!

Hey I am getting married in St Thomas by way of the Carnival Freedom. I'm using an on island WC and we booked our trip with a Carnival PVP. We gave our group over 8 months to book and pay off their trip. Surprisingly we have 39 ppl going. Most ppl are using the cruise as their vacay not just for our wedding. I think if you give ppl ample time to pay u'd be surprised how many ppl choose to go... However witht his economy we have alotta ppl who aren't going as well. An AHR would be a good option as well...

Happy Planning.

Were also planning on doing something like this bc my mom is scared of "boats" lol. So if I cant get her on the ship we will be married on a Florida beach maybe a day b4 the cruise is set to sail. If guest wanna come they can bc we plan on taking our children with us. If we can get my mom on the cruise then we will think about doing it on 1 of the islands at port.

We are doing this as well. Our cruise departs from San Juan on a sunday. We are going to have the guests come in on Friday and have our wedding on the saturday. This way people who dont want to come on the cruise can just come to the wedding in Puerto Rico.

Hi,

 

There are a number of couples who have commented about their Pre Cruise Wedding Experience on the Following sites: www.PreCruiseWeddings.com  and www.CharlesGilbride.com

 

Of course, if you have any questions, at all, I'd be delighted to help with whatever information I have. There are also a number of slideshow videos on these two sites.
