HELP!!! Carnival Dream: May 2011 - St.Thomas or Cozumel Wedding???

Recommended Posts

I'm doing the same thing on Carnival next April, but getting married on the beach in Antigua.  The people there have been awesome to work with.  My only stress is getting all of my friends and family that say they are going to actually book!!  I'm a planner and this is not helping my plans!! LOL!  Congrats and good luck!

I'm having a cruise wedding myself Nov 2011 and am getting married in St. Thomas! St. Thomas, in my opinion, is the best choice. We are having the ceremony in a Temple on the Island, having pictures take on Maegan's Bay and Drake's Seat, and are using one of the private restaurants for the reception. http://Wedding cufflinks

Apparently I'm under way too much stress a few weeks before the wedding and wishing it was 2011, but it's now is 2010. LOL

 

Sorry~ Mish

Hello!

 

Im in the process of planning my 2013 wedding and are looking into booking w/ Carnival Cruise as well.  I was wondering which package you chose w/ them for the wedding and how was your overall experience? I read that they have a limit of 20 guests, but I think that's for the reception. Did you have one w/ them as well? We're planning of just having a receiption here at home. :) Thank you!

Hello oliive0y1,

 

I have booked my wedding cruise with Carnival on the Valor we are doing our wedding cruise out of Miami in April 2012.  You can do the reception with Carnival and you may have more than 20 people, but they do charge an extra fee per person.  20 people is just what is included in your booking fees.  I believe the reception packages start at 650.00 for 1 hr., 750.00 for 1 1/2 hrs, and 850.00 for 2 hr reception. Then you pay an additional fee for each person over 20. You can pick an add on for like a DJ things like that for your reception. 

 

I hope this helps.  Good luck planning your wedding.

Hi Brides

 

I am booked on the Carnival Dream, getting married on embarkation day before the boat leaves Port Canaveral on April 28, 2012. I booked the deluxe wedding/reception package with carnival and I think that came to roughly about $2k. That includes 20 guests, and I have 36 guests booked in all, so I will need to pay an extra $35 a head over 20 guests. Yikes, I just calculated that to be like five hundred and sixty extra dollars I'm going to have to make sure to put away.

 

I went with a DJ option for my reception and the 1.5 hour (which is the longest you can get) reception.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
