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 

I'm just starting! How did you guys decide on which cruise line (or specific ship, even!) to go with? Also, are you guys getting married on ship or on shore?

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!

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!

       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?
