        I'm also a Key West bride getting married January 2012. We are arriving via Carnival Freedom on January 9. The plan is to have our ceremony at the Hyatt, have a 2 hour reception on board the ship w DJ, and then we booked everyone dinner at the Sun King Steakhouse. After dinner we will be going out dancing.  

         

        Has anyone had any luck getting info on photographers? I emailed specifically about this only to get the response that the photos are copyrighted, therefore I cannot see a portfolio and they wont tell me who the photographer will be.

         

        The other thing I'm trying to work out is who to have do hair/make up and whether I should have it done on board or at the Hyatt. Does the Hyatt even have a bridal suite we can use?

          Hello, have you found any info on getting your hair done? I am getting married at the Hyatt in April 2012 and I am also trying to figure out where I will be getting my hair done and getting ready.  Our weddings are so simular....I am also having my reception back on  board the carnival valor for the 1 & 1/2 reception with the dj. My travel agent has had a terriable time trying to reach the wedding department to arrange all of the details.  From what I hear the photographers on Carnival are great and the pictures turn out amazing but the package to buy your photos I hear are expensive. 

           

          Will you be hiring a photographer in Key West? I have called a couple today, but my budget for photos is not the best so I am trying to find an affordable package.

           

          Good luck in planning. I would like to hear anything you have to share as far as hair, getting ready and photography. Have you contacted the hip tourest key west? She has some great informatin.

            When I talked with Patty from A wedding for you, she suggested I get hair done on-board since our ceremony is set for 10 am. However, I'm still undecided since I cant find prices/reviews. 

             

            As far as photography goes - we were planning to transport the photographer I use here in KY to FL so he could do our pics. But an unexpected medical crisis w/ my fiance (110 till the wedding) trimmed our budget way back. Now I'm back to square one, so any Im all ears to what others have done.

              I am getting married onboard Carnival Conquest at Key West on June 5, 2012. The destination wedding was to risky for me. I am super excited!

                Hello khammond0005, I was curious how did you book the dinner at the Steakhouse? Can you share with me the process to book this and the pricing?  That is a great idea.  Thank you

                  I had my travel agent contact Carnival to make a special reservation. I told her the date, time, and number of seats we wanted reserved. She recieved a comfirmation (that she forwarded to me) from Carnival's Group Event Planner who had contacted the ships event planner. I am expecting a call from the ships event planner 5-6 weeks before we sail to re-confirm and collect payment. It wasnt a hard process for me since I had my TA, not sure how it would go without one.
