    Thanks Cincee,

     

    We had the 1.5 hr cocktail reception with open bar and hors d'oeuvres.  There was so much food and even more drinks!

      Sorry! I thought you were May 8 but you are October. Even closer.  You must be getting excited!

        I am sailing on Carnival Liberty leaving Miami on May 14, 2011. I am having having my wedding on May 17th in St Thomas and then coming back on board the ship for the wedding reception. We are having a two hour reception in the stage lounge booked. Do you have any pictures of the wedding reception you could send me? I would love to get a feel for what it will be like! I am trying to think of ways to make the reception better... more personal. I was thinking about getting custom made napkins and/or coaster. I am also not sure what to do for favors? Do you have any suggestions on ways to enhance the room?

         

        Also I am having what they told me is a "social host" for my music selection which will kind of MC the wedding, but will play music we have on a CD. Then after the two hour reception we have booked an hour open bar and a 4 piece band in the room across from the stage lounge this way we can extend the reception to 3 hours. I am not getting real details on what kind of music the band will play. When did you find out you were having Mambo Magic? Did you have any options for music?

          Hi JlKone!

           

          My friend is getting married on the Carnival Liberty the week before you on the Western itinerary! We'll be getting off and you will be getting on LOL. She is also getting married on land and having the two hour cocktail reception back on the ship.  That's a great idea to book an extra hour! It goes by so fast.

           

          The stage lounge is a really beautiful room so it doesn't need much.  The tables with the hors d'oeuvres was decorated with a lot of colourful fruit 'art' and flowers. The co-ordinator also set up a guest book table as you enter the stage and we brought flower petals to spread around on the table.  We also brought along some silk flowers to use for the cake topper because the one Carnival uses isn't the nicest.

           

          We found out we would be having Mambo Magic two weeks before the cruise.  We thought the band would be more of an instrumental quartet and we're not sure what to expect when the co-ordinator told us the band played mostly latin music but they were the best part of the reception.  Their music was so much fun and they even took care of MC duties for us. It seems the band who plays in the cigar bars are the ones who perform for the weddings as well.  Any cruise I have been on they are always my favourite band to listen to because they can play just about anything.

           

          If you have any more questions just ask.

          Also I can send our pics to you if you want to send me your email address. My email is a_walsh19@hotmail.com

           

          Take care!

                  Does anybody know if there is a complimentary wedding package for cruises? I am researching for a destination wedding and I know they are available for some resorts~how about cruises? I haven't seen any packages on regular websites.

                  Thank you!
