Nicky, your passport invites are super cute. I will def get in touch with your friend and see what we can come up with. I'm a huge etsy lover.

Thank you

It's been awhile since the last I've spoke. I got to travel to Chile with my college for a mission trip and LOVED it. I successfully convinced my man to go to Chile instead of Alaska for our second cruise after our honeymoon. However we have been considering doing a back to back cruise for our honeymoon. Has anyone ever done one? Instead of 5 days we thought two weeks would be better back to back. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I have wanted to do a back to back, and I have friends that do them all the time. Do it! Which cruise line goes to Chile? That would be cool too! Glad you got that experience... back in the 90s I did two mission trips in Belize. They were amazing experiences

Keisia that is wonderful, I can't even imagine what a great experience that must have been, and how great is it that you also were able to do a mission trip Ashley. The cruise we booked for our wedding is practically two weeks (11 days) so while I would loveeee to do a back t back cruise it's not looking good. I kind of still think we would all need a honeymoon, yes we are cruising for our wedding but with family and friends, that's not much for alone time. Is it not crazy how fast time is going, I remember booking my cruise and saying OMG it's two years away. Now it's 1 year and 8 months, the time is flying. I am almost done sending out my save the dates and we have had a few bookings so I'm excited about that.

Hey hey Crystal! I was just thinking the same the other day! Time is flying!!!! I was going to, but I still have not sent out the save the dates yet though. It just seems so early. I think Ive decided to wait until February, which still give people a year and two months.

Ive been working on some DIY projects when I get some free time. Just decorated our sand ceremony jar .. . Attaching before and after pics. And I know its crazy but I already said yes to the dress... lol no judgement.

We are in the same boat we are getting married in June of 2018. Not sure exactly what we want to do, but cruising (and probably Ziplining) will,be a part of it. Very excited. We are on the Sept 19 Alaska inside passage, then Stay on for the Sept 30 Panama Canal and end in Miami on the Norweigian Sun!

Hi Ashley, I honestly did send my save the dates quite early, but I really just wanted to give everyone enough time to book and save. since it was a magnet save the date I figured it's on their fridge they can see it everyday. I love your DIY project, the jar is perfect and your creativeness is perfectly adorable. No judgements at all coming my way, I say you find a dress you love, jump on it. Congratssssss.

Congrats SandS14, it seems so far but believe me the time flies. An Alaskan wedding sounds soooo amazing please spill the details as you figure out your plans.

@Jac if I was doing an 11 day cruise I'd probably have already sent them out too already. That definitely takes some extra planning for most people! (side note: Maybe it's because I took my name off my signature but it's April though I DO like the name Ashley. I had a girl call me Abbie once for the longest and I never corrected her she was so mad I didn't LOL)

CONGRATS on setting your date officially CruisinBlondie! Where are you going on the cruise? Getting married on a seaday would be ideal honestly. Where do you have to get your marriage license out of?

We leave from Ft. Lauderdale, have 2 seas days (we will get married on the first sea day!) and then St. Maarten, San Juan and Labadee, then one last sea day. It is an easy itinerary which will be great for a lot of our first time cruising guests!

When we were looking at cruise options we based it on the date the ship would be at sea... I wanted it on the 28th (its a special number to me) and my fiance wanted to be married at sea! Plus I have been wanting to go on the Harmony, so it all worked out so perfectly! But to make it legal, the ceremony will be performed by the captain (how cool!) and we have to have a Bahamian Maritime License.

CruisinBlondie28 that is awesome. I don't think Carnival offers the 'at sea' wedding choice but I def would have considered it! I really didn't want to do a port because I didn't want anyone to miss what the ports had to offer. St. Maarten is one of my all time favorite ports and that itinerary is great. Congrats on already having 31 booked! Side note: My wedding is also on the 28th... of April though. lol I read your second post wondering if I missed we were date twins... but it was a no go.

So its only in discussion mode, but I really really want to change our invites to the passports on Vanessas Destination Wedding Passports site. They are SO AMAZING. My FH is stuck on wanting to do full size message in a bottles. I love the message in a bottle idea (It was mine after all) but the more I think about the more of a pain the ass it sounds like and the mock ups we've done have been kind of "EHHH" PLUS shipping costs to those we don't see every day, and the fact that I'd rather mail then hand deliver..... sigh
I'm still working on convincing him so I ordered a sample one off etsy... wish me luck!

ETA: 35 days until my GIRLS WEEKEND BOOZ CRUISE!!!!! yay!!!!

Wooohooo for the boozecruise.... It's so hard picking the right invitation, I love the message in a bottle but it is sooooo much work. Vanessa's passport invites are really beautiful, your going to have a tough decision. I guess you will have to weigh the pros and cons for him. You might have a chance of the passport invites come up Cheaper. Good luck

LOL Crystal, it's ok, I gave serious thought to flying undercover here as my secret identity of Ashley hehe.

I think I have him convinced on the passport invite YAY!

25 days now and I'll be on the Fantasy... Its way far away til my wedding but I don't really see myself doing this again before the wedding, and I highly doubt I'll have a real bachelorette so I'm kinda looking at this as my unofficial fun bachelorette cruise!

I might be late to the party on this thread, but my FH and I have recently decided on a Summer (or maybe Fall) 2018 cruise wedding. Right now we're leaning towards a NCL ship sailing out of NYC, but we're waiting for the itineraries to be posted before we make any decisions.

So, hello y'all.

Congrats Groom, don't be shy we welcome all around here. I'm pretty sure I have read both good and bad reviews for RCCL. My best advice would be to really read between the lines see what the major complaints are and see if you can tolerate them or possible work around them. Wedding planning in itself is a bit of a hassle. All the best and good luck keep reading and ask lots of questions. FYI the best review that I read was from a groom he planned his Bahama wedding and provided us with lots of helpful information.
