    Feel free to PM me!

    Hi Jaime;

    Guess it looks like I'll be going before you. I'm doing a carnival cruise...Carnival Splendor departing Los Angeles 2/21/2010. First port is P.V! I'm glad we go there first so I can relax and enjoy the rest of the cruise after the wedding.

    I haven't sent invitations yet. I just sent out a mass e-mail to family and friends with the cruise info, so guests could book early if they were able to. I did get an invitation from a friend who is doing a wedding cruise to Cabo next weekend. They are getting married in port on the ship in san diego (I'll get to see the wedding I turned down - getting married on the ship seemed like getting married on a time line because the guest that are not sailing have to get off the boat before it sails) Anyway; her invitations looked like a ticket book like you use to get from the airlines. I don't know if Carnival printed them since they had all the booking info on them or if she had them printed. I thinking of doing something along those lines for invitations. I'll decide after I return from her wedding. Havent even started looking at photographers yet ( I'm almost thinking of seeing if I can find a local one that will do the wedding if I pay for their cruise. That might be less expensive in the long run.).

    Can anyone tell me about the music options? ie: DJ (good or bad) live music etc.

            Here is the list I have - for the rest of 2009. I can't promise that it's complete or 100% accurate! I try to keep up with it, but I'm sure I miss things here and there. The ones with the * by them aren't very active, but hopefully they at least drop in and let us know how planning is going, and then come back and post a review ... that's what makes this forum work for everyone!

              Ms. Havasu, I was thinking about a Passport Invite but still unsure... I just got my Save the Dates/Save the Week from Beyond Design on Etsy.com Click the image to open in full size.

              The little blurb on the back says:
              Our Wedding will take place on October 13, 2010. The
              ceremony and reception will be held while in port, at a
              secluded tropical beach hideaway called Las Caletas in
              Puerto Vallarta.

              We wanted to incorporate a photo of the two of us somehow so we ordered some personalized stamps from zazzle.

              So now I'm wondering what all of you ladies are doing for your invitations?! I'd love to see them!

                I made my invites...here is the thread about them
                http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t31934

                they came out pretty good and our guests thought they were just great too, nobody believed that i actually made them!

                  Very cute save the date post card (I love it). If you go with the passport idea you could use a picture of you and Brandon where the normal mugshot goes.

                  I wish I would have started a little earlier, I think I'm way behind. At least the price of the cruise is still low for my friends who haven't committed yet.

                    Duchess, I was wondering about the Las Caletas photographers...good to know about the 100 shots and the other details. 100 pictures is really nothing and it would be so hard to choose.

                      That 2500.00 for 100 pictures kinda took me back a little. That's 25.00 a picture and There probably not 8 x 10's. That's almost as much as the whole cost of the gold wedding package. I don't think that is in my budget. I'm really thinking of finding someone local that wants to take a free cruise vacation in exchange for their photog services. I figure I could put them and their assistant (spouse whatever) in an ocean view room for 500.00 each (total 1000.00) and get pictures from the entire week. I really think I'm going to work on that idea.
