Excited to see this thread started! I too am a 2016 bride and we are wanting to sail Carnival.
We are waiting for the rest of 2016 itineraries to be released so we can decide on the sailing. We are going to do our wedding ceremony in one of the ports and have our reception afterwards onboard. BTW, what does TWE stand for and what is the Facebook page to look up?
I see someone has already sent out their Save-the-Dates. I know sending out the Save-the-Dates should be sooner than a traditional wedding: but is there such a thing as too soon? THANKS
I have seen so much re-positioning lately and know some news is coming soon regarding Port Canaveral. Hopefully my ship, Sensation, will remain there but in all reality, whichever ship takes us will be fine with me.
TWE stands for The Wedding Experience. They are the 3rd party vendors that handle the coordination of the weddings for Carnival and a LOT of other lines. Their FB page is The Wedding Experience.
As soon as we got engaged, we started to get questions about our date. It was no secret that I have wanted to do a wedding on a ship. Once my fiance and I made the decision and chose our date, even more questions started to come in. We made a Facebook group to direct people to our Website 13 months prior to the wedding. My Aunt just adores the fact that I am such a "modern bride". To be honest, that group has had more activity than the site has. We haven't sent an official save the date but since the original eager guest bookings have been made, we are now sending a "save the date in May (10 months out) to encourage more bookings. Our plan is to follow up with official invites in September (6 moths out). That way we sent 3 notifications, 3 months apart.
