We are experienced cruisers (Platinum on Carnival) so if you have questions, let me know. We did a group booking, thinking it was going to be easier for our guests; it wasn't - I would recommend a vacation planner through Carnival, we have one we have used for years; if you want his number, let me know. He can make sure everyone is located near each other and connect the reservations for dinner and stuff.
Personally I would do assigned dining; if you don't want to go to dinner, you don't have to but at least you know you will have the same wait staff and table each night - if you book through Carnival with a vacation planner they can also make sure that you are all at the same table or at least the same area of the dining room if you require more than one table.
I have my dress and now I am second guessing it - I have turned into one of those brides
