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.

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • 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.
