    How Our Family Began…

               My husband and I started dating in 2002 after meeting on the internet.  We moved in together in 2003 and had our first son in 2004 (and our 2nd son in 2010).  We were very much in love but we didn’t get married until 2008 on Valentine’s Day.  We didn’t have enough money so we went to the courthouse. 

    Wedding/Vow Renewal Plans…

               I’ve been regretting the decision not having a ceremony ever since.  I think every woman should have her special day, so my husband and I decided to have a wedding/vow renewal ceremony after being married for 5 years.  Although we originally thought being married on Valentine’s Day was a good idea, we decided to change our anniversary date.  Every time we tried to plan for our anniversary, rates were higher and it never really felt like our special day.

    Choosing the Date & Location…

                We didn’t want to go in debt having the wedding our dream, so we looked into having our ceremony on a cruise.  We also wanted to find a cruise that would be affordable for our family and friends, so we decided on cruise during the off season.  We booked the Carnival Victory cruise ship, October 2013 but we have not the wedding.  I’ve called every day and so far, there are no wedding booked for this cruise and we’ll be booking in the next 3 weeks.

    Past Carnival Cruise Bride, I Need Help…

                If you’ve had a wedding on a Carnival cruise before, please help me with the details.  I’ve listed a few questions that I’m curious about.  Thanks in advance, Chyrise.

    • What’s all included in the wedding package, flowers or music?
    • Can I make my own bouquets and bring them on the ship?
    • What all can I bring on the ship?  I want to have a sand ceremony and bring Hershey chocolate bar wedding favors.
    • Do they have wedding singers?  I would love to have someone sing at the ceremony.
    • I want to see pictures!!  If you have any of your cruise ship weddings can you please post them??
    • Any other tips, feel free to post them

        Have you looked at the past cruise reviews? Also, by going to Carnivals website under weddings it will tell you what comes with each package.


        Also, I recommend calling the Carnival groups and having them send you more information such as pricing, food choices, etc.


        Lastly, I would recommend going to cruisecritic.com and selecting the weddings and honeymoon page. People have also posted reviews and pictures on that board which will help.


        A good start would be searching on this board for Acitera's post about her Carnival wedding.


        Hope that helps!

            Hi I just found your post and realized we are getting married on the Carnival Victory on Oct. 14th 2013. I have not been very successful at finding past brides and very excited to see someone getting married on the same ship. Feel free to communicate with me to exchange ideas. Good luck.
