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.
