Cruise Brides share some ideas...

Recommended Posts

Or any info we have found!? There is little 2 no info out there for cruise weddings. I thought it would be great for us 2013/2014 2 share what we r planning on doing. I am planning on getting married aboard Carnival not sure what ship yet (haven't gotten that far) in July 2014. I am from NJ so I like the idea that we can leave from Baltimore or NY. Saves my guests n us lots of money. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the passport STD's and boarding pass STD's. Also like that u can use them as STD's or actual invites. I also saw someone mailed out a box STD 2 all her guests with a piggy bank inside, cute idea. Not sure which one i will go with n I love that I can make them myself just have 2 figure out how!!! Lol I saw someone said that they reserved the restaurant onboard for their guests after the reception 2 have a sit down dinner for maybe $25 pp which doesn't seem bad at all I really like that idea. I reallllly wish I could bring on a photography bc I don't want 2 pay out my rear end for pics that may not be all that nice :-/ has anyone heard anything about the photographers? I just can't wait... Any sites that u frequent for cruise weddings or just any sites u love let us know Kara Excited July 2014 Bride2be!!!

We used the onboard photography company, its called Image on Royal Caribbean. They were very reasonable especially si ce we had a TTD shoot in Labadee, then the ceremony and getting ready pics in the morning, and a cocktail and reception in the evening. I would go with the onboard photographer or you will miss alot of moments on the ship.

Did you ever look at the Cruise Critic Message board?  There's a message board for Honeymoons & Weddings...it does have a bit of info. 

 

We're taking Carnival Conquest in November.  I'm getting married while in port in St. Thomas.  We decided to use an independent wedding planner on the island.  We will get back on the ship a few hours before the ship leaves St. Thomas to have a reception on board.  The reception is a 2 hour open bar with cake and music, snacks, etc.

 

One of my friends will be coming with us to take pictures.  She's not a professional or anything.  It will just be nice to have her since she can take pictures of the entire day.  They will also be giving us a Carnival photographer at the reception.  I want to have the guests eat at the steakhouse onboard.  We will pay for everyone's dinner.  It will be about $35/pp.  I can't book that ahead of time...that stinks!  We will just have to go right to the steakhouse when we get onboard and book it.

And I didn't know you could use the onboard photographer for TTD. How did you go about setting that up? I just figured we would have photographer for pics before ceremony, ceremony, and reception. Plz any info in how you went about this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Kara

Kara Do you know what ship you will be on? We worked with the photography manager onboard, do you have a group coordinator yet? He might be able to send you the contact info, or send me your email and Ill try and get you in touch with them.
