Carnival Liberty Brides

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies! I am looking at multiple Carnival cruise itineraries, but am so lost in all the different ports and how this would work. Is it cheapest to get married on the ship(at port or at sea), at a port(not by cruise line), or do you have other suggestions? ANY info will help to be better prepared for the stress of picking a specific itinerary. Message me! To get a better feel of US as a couple, here is our wedding website. http://elizabethandbilly.ourwedding.com He proposed on an Alaskan cruise (Thru Princess Cruises) back in June and we definatly want something beautiful for our wedding cruise!

I think it depends what you want for your day and how many people you are having. We are having 79 guests and I wanted to bring my own photographer and really be able to customize my wedding day - so I opted to use an on-island co-ordinator (Island Bliss Weddings in St Thomas - can't say enough good things about Janelle, the owner) and we rented the ships Steakhouse out for the entire evening (renting half is optional as well but we needed the whole space with so many guests). Doing it this way will cost us about $7200 (rough estimate) including ceremony, reception & alcohol.

Wow you all write such wonderful reviews!! I am getting married on the Carnival Liberty in April this year (2012)  I am doing the dinner package with the wedding in Miami before we leave port so we doing have the opportunity to do hair/nails/makup on board, but rather have to come completly ready except for dresses and tux's... Its a small wedding with only 7 adults and 2 children, but I am wondering what reviews you have of the dinner one, or the food on Liberty in general?  The dinner is in the main dining room. also any advice on hair/nails in Fort Lauderdale?

Hi! I am new to this site, but have been enjoying all the tips!

We are getting married in December 2012 on the Liberty. Our ceremony will be in St. Thomas on Lime Tree beach. It is arranged by Royal Wed which we booked through carnival. Does anyone have any reviews or suggestions about this?

Also we are using their photographer as we are prohibited from bringing our own. This makes me super nervous since I do not know the quality of the pictures!! Does any have experience with the on cruise photographers??

 

Our reception will be in the Cabinet Lounge with the piano player. First we booked the DJ and had the disco lounge but then realized the theme was tattooed arms and legs which they never mentioned!!

Has anyone been to the Cabinet Lounge and/or heard the piano player??

 

Any advice would be appreciated because I seem to be receiving very vague information from the wedding/ceremony coordinators :)

Hey just FYI, the legs/arms aren't tattooed anymore. They're all silver now after the 2.0 drydock.

 

The cabinet lounge is plush but a bit dark. The piano bar is a giant piano. Literally - all black and white, with a spinning piano in the middle. It's not bad, but it's definitely a piano bar. Plus it's a smoking lounge and not very private. The cabinet is probably the most private venue.

 

You can bring your own photog if you want, you just have to sign a waiver. But I've seen and heard really good things about ships photogs, they usually do a good job, but the prices are high (probably not any higher than bringing your own).

 

Good luck!

There is no makeup artist on the ship so go to MAC or somewhere like it, and learn to apply your own makeup or bring someone who can do it for you.  I was MORE than happy with my hair stylist.  I can't remember HIS name but I think it was the only male in the salon.

 

A great OOT bag or as we did favor idea is monogrammed beach towels in your wedding color.  Our guests used them out and around the pools so even if they weren't at their chair you could see where people were set up.  (Carnival's towels and a navy color).

 

That's all I can think of....

Hello!

 

I know this is old and hopefully you get to read this, but I was wondering, did you book your hair appoitment before you boarded the ship or after?

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
