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

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
