      Welcome, and congratulations! I'm getting married on the Carnival Miracle next month. We choose the cruise based on the port (we live in NJ so we can drive to NYC), the time of year (I'm a teacher so I'm off for the summer) and the itinerary (we didn't go with RCCL because the ship was only going to 1 port instead of 3). The particular cruise we chose was the cheapest of the August cruises, but it was still pretty expensive for our guests because it's an 8 day cruise. We gave them a year's notice though, and we ended up having 21 cruising guests.

      This is our first cruise, so I've spent countless hours the past year on CruiseCritic. Between that site and this one, I feel completely prepared for my cruise wedding!

        I suggest finding a good travel agent either through here or destinationweddings.com to book the cruise, it makes it much easier for guests to book. I'm doing a cruise wedding in November with Carnival Destiny. Good luck with your search!

          You ladies will love cruising. It's one of the best ways to vacation. I've been on at least 10 cruises and I absolutely love it.

            I agree! My friend is a part time TA, so I used her, and it made it much easier on all of us. You can also get group perks depending on the cruise you choose and the amount of rooms you book. If you use a TA, he or she will link all the bookings so you can eat together if you choose the same dining time. We had some issues with Carnival's group cruise department, and I'm glad I had her to deal with the problems for me, because I know I would've turned into bridezilla on them!

              I can't wait! I was planning on throwing my parents a 35th wedding anniversary party next year, but after talking to my brother, we're leaning towards surprising them with a vow renewal cruise to Canada instead....I think we're addicted and we haven't even started yet lol!
