    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 Bluebeard’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.
