Need invitation help

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get my invitations together for our wedding. We will be getting married in Cozumel during a Carnival Cruise. Can any of you let me know how you worded your invites? We plan to get married on the shore with a reception on board after, but I'm not sure how to word the where and when on the invite.

I did newsletter as invites and save the date, every one loved them because they gave so much information my TA did them and printed them out on high gloss colored paper so it cost me just postage-- good luck

My invitations wording is:

Together with their families




Request the honor of your presence

On Saturday, the fifteenth of August

Two thousand and nine

At half past ten in the morning

As they set sail on life's greatest voyage

And tie the knot aboard the

Carnival Destiny, Port of Miami


Reception to follow


My response card wording is:


Take the helm and respond by July 1, 2009


__ You beach ya' we'll be there for the wedding!

__ Ahoy mateys, we'll set sail with you all week!

__ Sorry, we're docked somewhere else that day.


Then I added a little card reminding people about the wedding website for the rest of the details. I like the way I did the response cards but most people who are sailing with us checked off both of the yes responses so it could have been a little more clear. HTH

I used the following wording for my invitations:


Together with their parents




Request the pleasure of your company

Aboard their wedding cruise

On Princess Cruise Line's Ruby Princess

Departing on Saturday, the ninth of January

Two thousand and ten

From Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA



Ceremony to take place

Tuesday, the twelfth of January

At Bluebeardâ€s Beach

On the island of St. Thomas, USVI



Because I used a pocket fold invite, I'll look to include a note that an invitation to our AHR will follow. Unfortunately we are unable to plan our AHR until after our cruise as my FI is in the military and we're not certain as to when he will be available (it was a big struggle for us to be able to secure our wedding date because of their scheduling).

We just left out the time (to give ourselves some leniency) and exact venue, listing just the city, country


On February 25, 2009

in Tulum, MX


We knew that the group would be with us at least a day or so before and that we could work the details out later.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
