Just Married =)

Your pics are absolutely gorgeous and I love the colors you picked!

I am undecided between Riviera Maya or a Carribbean Cruise wedding... My travel agent said that the weather in February is not that warm for cruises that leave from Florida vs. San Juan for eg.

What was your experience? How many days at sea were you?

Hmmm, I beg to differ. I just went on a cruise Jan 30-Feb 7 and it was hot hot hot! We left from Fort Lauderdale where it was in the low 20's (sorry, that's Canadian temperatures for you.... not sure what the conversion is). As we sailed through the Carribean, we were hitting 25-35 degree weather! Definitely hot enough!!

We did do speeches there, without a microphone, so at times it was a little hard to hear, but we're just happy we could have them! Our dinner started at 6 and with all the courses and speeches we were out of there by 1130!

I was just reading through this again, and am surprised they let you stay in the Steakhouse so late! Did they not book a late seating in the steakhouse because they knew that your wedding reception would likely take a while? I was just thinking they would give us the 2.5 hour normal allottment that they tell you to expect on the reservations page.
I'm waiting to hear back from Carnival groups, and we now have 76 guests booked (MUCH more than expected!) and by the sounds of things, we are better off just paying for all 108 seats in the Steakhouse and having a private reception (it would be weird to have 76+ of us, and then just a few tables of randoms!). I wonder if they would let us use the room from 7pm until however long it takes!
