Wedding Idea: Cruise Ship Or Banquet Hall?

Recommended Posts

Which one do you think will be a great choice? Cruise ship wedding or some banquet halls? My daughter's marriage has been fixed next year. Hope everything would go well  :)


We are currently going through the wedding-planning process! And venue is the first thing we are looking for. What do you think about a romantic cruise ship? My hubby suggests to hold the wedding in a cruise ship and reception in some beautiful wedding banquet hall in Toronto. I too think it's a great idea.


What's your opinion? Will it be okay to hold the ceremony and reception in two different locations? :wub:

So are you meaning like a local day cruise close to GTA for the ceremony and then a reception at a local hotel/banquet facility? That sounds nice. Many brides getting married in their home towns change venues between reception and ceremony. Is this what your daughter and FI are also envisioning?


Most of us here are planning weddings that are destination in nature, meaning usually travelling to another country/city and being there for 3-7 days hosting the entire wedding celebration in a local not in our home area. This results in often a much smaller group, but there are many perks to that. I think if your daughter were wanting to take a cruise with close family/friends where she would get married and then later in the month/year come home and host an at home reception at a local ballroom for guests unable to travel for the actual wedding this would also work as well.


It all really depends on what your daughter wants. There is no right/wrong rules in a destination wedding.

    • 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.
