I wish I had this sheet during my planning. She has thought of it all...
I had to upload it to my site... you can download it
Wow!! This awesome!! thank you for sharing

Hi, we're getting married on the Carnival Victory next year and would love to get feedback on what the experience was like for you getting married on that ship. Congrats on your wedding!

Hi Ladies,
I'm sorry I just now peaked in on this thread. I don't come in here as often as I used to. I would be happy to send you all anything I have, from the welcome letter, to the alternate menus. However, I don't always check in here so if you could just email me at [email protected] and let me know what it is you would like for me to send to you, I will get the message right away and be able to get it out to, and that way I won't miss a request hidden in this thread somewhere. I'll be waiting for those emails.

Also, I am a retired teacher so I probably go a little overboard on planning stuff, but I put together a 10 page "Welcome Letter" with a schedule and everything. I also wrote out our entire wedding outline and script including our vows. I'd be happy to share with anybody who wants to see.

I would LOVE to look at your book [email protected]
