Carnival Victory Cruise Vow Renewal

Recommended Posts

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 didnâ€t get married until 2008 on Valentineâ€s Day.  We didnâ€t have enough money for a wedding, so we went to the courthouse. 

Wedding/Vow Renewal Plans…

Iâ€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 Valentineâ€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 didnâ€t want to go in debt having the wedding our dreams, 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.  We decided on cruise during the off season.  We booked the Carnival Victory cruise ship, October 2013 but we have not the wedding.  Iâ€ve called every day and so far, there are no wedding booked for this cruise and weâ€ll be booking in the next 3 weeks.

Past Carnival Cruise Bride, I Need Help…

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

·        Whatâ€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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
