Planning a cruise wedding

Recommended Posts

I am in the early stages of planning a destination/cruise wedding. I am thinking about planning it for May 2011. We DO NOT want to get married on the ship. We want to have a ceremony followed by a reception (lunch, drinks and dancing) in port some where. I am not sure what port would be best or know of a good reception location? We want a beach wedding ceremony, and want to have a reception where we can have dancing. We are hoping for about 40 people to join us.

 

Any suggestions on good place to have a day time reception would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you,

 

Jessica

Attended a cruise wedding in 2007, apparently you can only get married in certain ports that do not have a 48 hour residency requirement. I attended a wedding on the beach in St Lucia, we had a champagne reception outdoors then went to a little restuarant for cake and drinks, then back to the ship for dinner and dancing. The brdie and groom paid for the guests meals in the "upgraded" dining room, so it didnt feel like we paid for our own meal. It went very well. My friend used a wedding planner in St Lucia that she found on-line.

    • 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. 
    • 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.
