I am getting married in Bermuda, and we are going there by cruise ship. The wedding is on the island, but I really wanted to get professional shots of us on the ship. My venue is a 45min ride from where the ship is docked, so it would be hard to go there after the ceremony and before the reception. Should we see eachother before the ceremony to take pics on the ship? Or skip the ship pics? Has anyone else broken tradition?

There is a whole thread, recent - won't be hard to find - about seeing your groom before the wedding.  It's a 50/50 toss up on what to do. Some are, some aren't.  I would suggest doing it after your reception, but by then you would be exhausted and possibly sweaty (hehe).  In your case, if the two of you are comfortable, it wouldn't be a bad idea.   Let us know what you decide.

Thanks, I will look for the thread! I'm soo torn, I feel like, this will be my only wedding, it would be nice to see his face when I walk down the isle. But on the other hand, I would love pics by the ships grand staircase. After the reception would probably be best, but I'm pretty sure we will both look terrible then!

I totally understand 100%. We have decided that our reactions as I walk down the isle are the most important to us.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you do it the next day?

How long is your ship docked for? How long is your reception? What about doing photos separately, say with parents and wedding party , on the ship's staircase? I know some of them are beautiful. But are you docked that long that you won't be able to go back to the ship and do a few shots together on the stairs?

The ship is actually docked in Bermuda for 3 days, but if my reception is over at 11:00pm, and it's a 45 min ride back to the ship, I was thinking the ships photography will be closed. I would want professional shots. I wonder if I can arrange to have one of the ships photographers take our pics that late. I'm going to call their wedding department and ask..

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
