Cruise Wedding Guest Count Restrictions

Recommended Posts

Hello all!


We finally decided the dates for our cruise wedding next year! Now we are really focusing on the guest list and I read a couple forums from years past that state their cruise line only allowed a certain number of guests and then after that, they were charged per person for additional guests. NOTE* I have only read this about Carnival and Royal Caribbean...  We decided to go with Princess and get married at sea. 


My question is:


Does anyone know if Princess has a limit on guests you can invite to your wedding if your wedding is at sea? So therefore, all guests attending will be sailing guests. Or is this only with weddings at port where you have non-sailing guests too?


Also, has anyone done a different reception like a dessert reception? We were thinking of just having the ceremony, then reserve tables for everyone at one of the main restaurants and eat dinner with everyone else and then hold a small reception with only desserts. This way we could still do the cake cutting and also do our first dance. But then I don't know how this would work with the photographer (we will be using their photographer). I doubt they would want to stay and watch us all eat! lol I hope this doesn't come off wrong but I just don't want to pay for a meal for everyone when they are already technically paying for one with their cruise.

Not sure how cruises work but I sympathize. We are doing an all inclusive resort and dinner for anyone 25+ guest is 53 a plate...for food we already paid for plus 15/hr open bar for any extra time. Crazy

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
