Carnival Miracle wedding review

Recommended Posts

I have a few complaints regarding the wedding coordinators from A Wedding for You and Carnival is dealing with it right now. Long story short they were rude, not helpful and even were heard saying "eat and drink as much as you want, its all paid for."

I truly hope no one else has to deal with people like that but thank goodness for my family who picked up the slack and not taking no for an answer.


Not sure what time we got on the boat but we all crammed into my room and got dressed. The ships photographer came in and took a bunch of shots and then we were all out the door. No time for a rehersal.


The ceremony was wonderful, it felt like a dream and I had to keep saying to myself, stop, look around, and enjoy every moment! It really does fly by and all you are left with is the memories. I made sure I looked out into the audience a few times just to take it all in.


The reception in the piano bar was interesting. We were told by our not so helpful coordinators right as I'm about to walk into the bar that there was no microphone to announce us. I'm like okay great what do you want me to do about it??


We went in for our first dance and found the dance floor to be TINYYYY so we couldn't even do the dance we took lessons for. Oh well. Then we went to cut our cake and take pictures. I kept running around the room bumming food from everyone cause I knew I had to eat some of the food I paid for haha. It was funny everyone just kept feeding me. And after what felt like 30 minutes but really was an hour and a half all the non sailers had to get off the boat. I stood at the front of the piano bar and gave everyone a kiss and a hug goodbye.


We went for the muster drill shortly after and met back up with the photographer. He had us doing all sorts of silly poses but I made sure i got NYC and the Statue of Liberty in the back ground. I really thought the pictures were just going to be okay, BUT when we met up with him a few days later I realized how AMAZING his pictures were. I ended up buying the entire package for $4000!!! He said we were really easy to photograph and that he only threw out 10% of our pictures which was unheard of. He said he was also going to be using a few of our photos in his portfolio because they came out so perfect. I gotta say it was a great ego boost.



Even with all the little problems I'm left with wonderful memories of our special day and the cruise.


A few tips for the brides is just go with the flow, if something is forgotten and left behind, Oh well no biggie! Let your family take control of things you cannot do and my most important tip is stop, look around, and enjoy every moment. It goes by soooo quickly and you want to take in all you can.


Best of luck to all of you!!

Lissy was great. I had no problems with her at all.

Hopefully you will have better coordinators then I had. If not get family members to take control of it and sit back and enjoy your day.

    • 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?
