I just worry about keeping the price reasonable. I'm having a hard time justifying almost a 2 to 1 ratio for Royal vs. Carnival when I know they both will be equally as fun. So, for now, just information gathering.
How fun that you've been on a cruise wedding before! You can definitely learn on what you liked and didn't. I've cruised enough (8 times) and my fiance also likes it - so it just seemed like a natural fit.
I noticed you are getting married at Secret Harbour - that looks to be a beautiful location! Are you planning on a little reception there following your ceremony?
Good luck at the planning. I look forward in your planning updates. I feel like I could definitely learn a lot from your fabulous wedding!
Lol. That's funny how you're going to Liberty and also comparing Royal. I hope you find all the info you need that'll help you plan out the best route for you
Yeah, my GF's cruise wedding took place in October and she definitely missed the island twice. lol. Hurricane season so we skipped the island once for the captain to say we'll be back to it and when we did, we couldn't dock bec. the waves were too rough and there were other ships trying to do so. She still got married in the end at the last port so I experienced first hand the worse comes to worse situation. lol. But we're getting married in March so that wouldn't be too much of an issue *crossing fingers* hahah
Thank you about the location. We initially wanted Lindquist beach w/ the pictures we saw via Island Bliss Wedding's Shutterfly account http://www.islandbli....com/photo.html hehe But Janelle advised that since we're getting there on a Tuesday, that's when a lot of cruise lines usually come in the island so she said that a private ceremony wouldn't be quite as possbile. But after some researching, we figured Secret Harbor since from their blog, they said that they can clear an area for you. Lol. That just made me search their blog again and saw recent pictures of the place http://islandblisswe...q=secret harbor
Yes on the reception. VERY simple luncheon to thank everyone since we'll be having a reception back home. My friends said they don't care about the lunch really since there'll be the free dinner at the cruise, but my mother insisted lol. Oh and we also chose this location since Sunset Grille is just walks away from the ceremony location!
Good luck on planning your wedding! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to help out! You sound like you're on the right track thus far
