2014 Cruise Brides

Recommended Posts

Congrats on just starting! Do you have any ideas on what you want yet? 

 

I am planning on going on the Carnival Legend (if though I have never been on a Carnival ship, I'm a RCCL girl...but, they didn't have a cruise for me sad.gif).

We are getting married on the beach in GC...we figured after going all that way, we might as well put our feet in the sand!

Hi Gresley! For us, it was process of elimination after making a few decisions. We first picked the month (April), then location (Cozumel - we are getting married onshore at Mr Sanchos) and we wanted a 4-day weekend cruise out of Florida. So I searched that criteria on all of the cruise lines and that left CCL and RCCL in the running. Then we looked at which weekend would be best for our families and that only left 2 CCL ships. We chose the Victory over the Paradise since it had an extra port instead of an extra sea day. There are so many options, but if you have any specific criteria you can narrow it down!

Have any of you ladies received the upgrade pricing list from carnival yet? I am curious how much the extra flowers and dj are. If someone could email it to me I would soooo appreciate it! I am planning my wedding summer 2014 on the carnival pride but prices arent out yet for summer so I have to wait. Also has anyone done the carnival registry? What did you think of it? I dont plan on doing a large registry thru a store so I wanted to mainly register on carnival so we can get help with the pictures and stuff.

Thanks!

Karen

 I just requested the flower upgrade (I want green Calla lilies, pink peonies and white hibiscus) I really wanted white pleumeria but they don't carry it - anyway, they said that they have asked for a quote from the florist and once I receive it (about 2 weeks) I can pay in full and the price is guaranteed.

 

The DJ cost us 105.00  - if you really want the DJ book that right away, they only offer it tone wedding and you will have your reception in the Disco.

 

hope that helped

Just booked my embarkation wedding in New Orleans on the Carnival Dream on June 22, 2014! 7-day cruise to Cozumel, Belize, and Roatan. My boarding pass invites are nearly done (just waiting to get a few more addresses from people to send out). It was hectic trying to figure out when & where to do it, but I feel more relaxed now that its booked. Also thrilled that we decided to get a spa suite... I've only stayed in interior cabins on previous cruise. I'm getting excited now... More for the cruise than the wedding though. I've never really been the girl that dreams of her wedding day. My mom was actually surprised when we said we were getting married. She always figured she would just get a call one day saying we eloped in Las Vegas or something. She didn't really expect me to have a "real" wedding. I'd be fine with a courthouse wedding, but FH wanted a more traditional ceremony. But that's why we love the destination/cruise idea... It's really the best of both worlds. Small, simple, can have out family there without getting too big and crazy. And minimal wedding planning. I love it. We have both our immediate families (parents, siblings, nieces/nephew) joining us on the cruise. We are inviting about 20-30 others, but we expect only maybe 5-10 will actually come. And some of those will probably be non-sailing. That's fine though... As long as our immediate families are there we are happy.

I am getting married July 2, 2014 on the Carnival Fantasy Leaving out of Charleston, SC. I chose July because both my fiance and I are teachers and we wanted to make sure all of our teacher friends will be out of school. We booked our wedding last week. I am SOOOO excited!

I'm a March 2014 bride. We're getting married on Royal's Jewel of the Seas sailing out of San Juan. We wanted a different itinerary and only one day at sea which is why we chose that one. Is anyone else getting married on Royal?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
