Does anyone know how a cruise wedding work? All you thoughts & comments are greatly appreciated.

Be Well!
I wrote a pretty detailed report of my wedding on Carnival Destiny on another site if you want to read it here is the link, Megan's cruise wedding review- Carnival Destiny 8/15/09 - Cruise Critic Message Boards
A wedding through Carnival is pretty easy if you don't mind letting someone else do some of your planning, Carnival provides a lot for you but you can't pick your photographer, cake, musicians, coordinators but these things are provided for you and you can make upgrades and some choices about them. Hope this helps if you have any more specific questions feel free to ask!

"Congratulations" Im also a Destiny future bride smile72.gif This is great to have so may of us on the same boat..lol. All of my close friends that have cruised in the past have all recommended the Carnival Destiny. I originally had made group reservation on the Carnival Liberty (7 day cruise) but it got too overwhelming with the price for everyone. We switched to the carnival destiny (4day) just a couple of months ago. I have no regrets, price dropped over half the price. We plan on having a beach ceremony on cozumel along with a reception party, and then having an after hour party back on the ship. We are sailing in July. Im still however having a very hard time with most of my guest making their initial deposits. I did STD back in August and then again in November I mailed out postcard reminders. So far I have 28 rsvp and still have about 25 who have still not rsvp (This includes people who are even in the wedding). Its very frustrating because Im pretty much on hold as far as ordering favors and so on until I get an exact count. Most of all my guest promised to make their deposits or pay in full this month (I wont hold my breath) lol....But hopefully this is the worst part.shots.gif

If you are still deciding on the port, here are my 2 cents.
For you it is probably easier to get married in Key West if you do the legal part there. Mexico requires blood tests and such, so in a one day port only it is almost impossible to do it all and have it be legal!
good luck in all the planning.


Destiny changed the cruise from 5 day to a 6 day cruise to Ocho Rios, Jamaica & Grand Cayman Island for 2011.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
