    Hi ladies,

     

    I am just about to start planning my future cruise wedding and would love to hear where the current cruise brides are in their planning process!

     

    Please share how things are going, what isn't going well, DIY, planning, etc.

     

    Thanks!

      We are also in the beginning stages - we have decided on he Carnival Breeze out of Miami on 1-4-12.

       

      So far we have done fun save the date cards that look like boarding passes. We have our invites in thought but have time to bring them to reality :)

       

      We also have looked at wedding songs, flower upgrades and food selection.  I have not even thought about a dress; its my least favorite part of the process; I am not a size 2 or a young bride so I worry about how I will look

       

       

      Have you decided on a ship or date?

          We're getting married at St. Thomas and are going on a Carnival Cruise March next year. We are not, however, using their services since it's much much more pricier. When my FI both decided on where we're having it, I was able to browse around the forums here and that's how I found my WC. We're using Island Bliss Wedding and working w/ Janelle. It'll just be a simple ceremony with a casual lunch after since my compromise w/ my mother was having a reception back hom for folks that won't be able to make it out.

           

          My DIY on the trip will be the corsage for the bridesmaids. Majority are for the reception here :) Best of luck!

            Planning has been going well our wedding is in December so its almost here! We're getting married in St. Thomas using an outside planner (Island Bliss Weddings) and will be having our reception back on the ship with Carnival. For personalization we are bringing our own silk flowers, favors, OOT bags, cake topper, programs, guestbook and decorations for the tables in the main dining room.

              Sounds like planning is going well! I too, am looking at using Island Bliss as Janelle really seems like the best! How did you guys choose what ship to go on? I have cruised 10 times and love cruising but also want a nice ship yet reasonable for my guests! Wishing you all happy planning and thank you for sharing! The cruise board is a little quiet!
