My fiance and I are teachers so my first priority was doing a wedding over spring break. We also wanted a cheap, short cruise so we could have a lot of friends and family attend - and it seemed to work because we already have about 40 guests booked! So we found a three-day cruise out of Port Canaveral to the Bahamas on the Carnival Sensation and one of the Royal Carribean Majesty of the Seas. Ultimately, price and the sailing dates were the deciding factor between the two. Then I got in touch with wedding coordinators in Nassau and found a location on the beach! Good luck with your decision - keep us posted!

Personally, our decision was based on timing as well, knew it had to be during spring break-up as the FI works for the Oil & Gas industry. Second thing was the itinerary and then availability for the wedding and times that I wanted.

Since sailing with Princess and wanting to be married "At Sea".... also being quite picky, had to be the last wedding of the day and the first day at sea. After picking which itinerary and then which ship came down from 2 Itineraries, 2 Ships, 8 Sailing Dates and found the one that worked best for us and that was the final decision of booking our room and then the package.

 

Enjoy picking out your date and itinerary, I had lots of fun picking out ours!

Our driving force was price. We live in South Florida, so we have many options between the cruise lines. I know I wanted a fall wedding and also the sailing prices are cheaper during the fall. We got a great rate with NCL which included all outside cabins. We currently have 50 guests sailing with us on our weekend cruise to the Bahamas. I also found a WC in the island, which offered us a better wedding package than the cruise lines.

awesome!!! i think that mine is going to come down to the church availability. i actually just secured my priest for the weekend of february 13th - which is president's day weekend. i met with him yesterday and just pulled that date out of a hat and he is free!!!!

 

now i just have to figure out a church that is free and will let us have the ceremony.

 

there are so many choices, but isn't is awesome how things finally have a way of falling into place?

We really wanted a beach wedding but my FI doesn't fly, so we decided to cruise. We narrowed down the islands that had no wait time for on island weddings and researched the island and tendering. Then we tried to find the cheaper cruise with the best itinerary so that it would be easier for our guests to afford it. And we actually took into consideration a few other friends weddings and vacation times. At the end of the day none of that mattered because only 2 are booking...but we're soooo excited!

 

Congrats on picking your date!

And yes...the rest will all fall into place!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
