Key West Cruise Bride

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to say Hi! I've been lurking these forums for a long time before I finally decided on a destination! We have officially booked a cruise for January 2012! We will be getting married in Key West while at the port. I haven't booked the actual ceremony yet, but I've been emailing a wedding planner back and forth! Any other Key West Cruise brides out there?

Hello, I am plannng our ceremony in key west. I have book on the Carnival Valor in April 2012. I have not found a planner or anything in Key West. We have been looking. Any ideas suggestions? We decided not use Carnival for our wedding package because we are in a group and found Carnival to be expensive for a group our size. Congratulations on your wedding and booking a cruise.

Congratulations! How many people will you have attending?

We will not be using Carnival either due to the price. I found it a lot more affordable to use an outside wedding planner. I am almost 100% positive that I will be booking Aaron from www.aaronskeywestweddings.com I've read other fourms that say he is really good. I've been emailing him and he seems like a really nice guy and his prices are good too!

We are getting married November 27, 2011 in Key West.  We are sailing on the Carvial Ecstasy with a stop in Key West.  We are using Key West Weddings To Go for the ceremony at 1pm on Smathers Beach, and then having our reception back on board at 3pm.  Ray at Weddings To Go has been great, and they have great reviews.  Since we have 27 sailing with us, we are renting a trolley to pick us up at the pier and take us to and from the beach.  Congrats to you both!!!

Congratulations! I can't wait to hear all about your wedding when you get back in November! If you don't mind me asking, how much was it to get a trolley? Or what company is the trolley through? I've been trying to price out transportation, to see what will be the best option!

We are going with Historic Tours.  I have priced out Green Leggs for a van that fits up to 14 and they were $350.  The problem is we are at 27 now, and will possibly be at 35 so I would have needed 3 vans; not affordable.  The Old Time Trolley is $13 per person round trip, so right now I am right around $350.  I have attached my contact's information if you are interested.  If you have any more questions, ask away.  I have been researching this for the last two months, so hopefully we have made the right choices :)

Thank you! I emailed her! I have about 20 people coming so far with possibly more that will book soon. I love idea of a trolley! I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get further into planing. Thanks so much!

I loved the idea of the trolley too!  They also have an option where for $20 the trolley could do a tour too; we opted against that since our reception is back on the ship.  Good luckand Happy Planning!

Thanks for the info ladies. I dont think I looked into weddings to go yet. I did check out Ezweddings in keywest....but it looks a little cheesy. Since we are traveling for a destination wedding...I want it to look romantic for the ceremony.  I just got a quote from the Hyatt, to see what it would cost outside the Cruise line. Carnival uses Hyatt but the cost is alot more than if you do it on your own. I am curious about the reception back on board. kwbride did you book your reception through Carnival? If so do you mind letting me know what it costs? I have a group of about 25 and we are still working on the reception.  I hope you post reviews after your cruise and wedding...I would love to see how it turns out.  Thanks

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
