Congrats to all. It's so nice to see the 2018 thread filling up. I'm booked on NCL March 2018 and we went with an island coordinator in St Thomas. I really haven't had much to do, my planner has been taking care of everything so far. It's not confirmed for sure yet but tentatively my wedding begins at 11am and ends at 3pm. The ship departs at 6pm. From 3 to 5 my guests can browse the island if they choose to. I was also thinking about having a dinner that night in one of the specialty restaurants back on the ship and then maybe going to one of the nightclubs afterwards to dance the night away.

Hello everyone! I'm also a 2018 bride. I recently booked a wedding cruise package for 8/31/2018 for the Majesty of the Seas with Royal Caribbean (3 day cruise to Bahamas). Anyone have any experience with that? I can't find what venues they have.

After I booked, I made a wedding webpage including all the Info I could think of like pricing(as well as deposit and final payment dates) a section for rsvp and general cruise questions. Then I emailed SAVE THE DATES with the website link. This gave people time to plan and save. 8 months b4 the wedding I sent out my real invites. Hope that helped?

Venue options are basically any bar/lounge/entertainment area on the ship.

 

For my wedding next year aboard Rhapsody, I am using the Shall We Dance lounge. Viking Crown Lounge is also an option.

 

I believe you can also book the entire specialty restaurant. Usually costs $4k USD for dinner.

Just wanted to share everyone what I've been designing/creating for my wedding.

 

I am booked for May 26 2018 aboard Rhapsody of The Seas and I have about 40 people booked so far.

 

My invites and welcome aboard letter: Designed by me and the photos I used were from my last year's trip aboard Rhapsody to Mykonos and Santorini

welcome.jpg

The envelopes have gold writing on them now. Didn't get a chance to snap a new pic.

 

Custom made shirts are being printed

I'm also giving out Rayban Wayfarer style sunglasses with my logo on it. I'll post more pics of that later. Below is the custom made bag which will house the glasses

Hello All,

 

My fiance and I will be cruising on the Harmony of the Seas for our wedding in July, 2018. We will be sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale and then having our wedding in St. Thomas through Island Bliss Weddings. We are so excited but looking to see what others have planned too! Are there any other RCCL brides on here that have looked into hair and makeup options on the ship?

Hi there! I am probably going to be a 2018 bride... maybe 2019. I too got engaged on a Carnival cruise, this past week actually! It was on the Carnival Imagination ship during the formal dining time and I was hoping that I may be able to come across someone who witnessed the special moment and had captured any pictures or videos?

Majesty is going into dry dock in February. Lucky you (catastrophic for me). So there will be upgrades. They may add a restaurant too. I would wait on deciding location till u ask them what new options you have! It should be much nicer.

Good Afternoon fellow 2018 Cruise Brides!

 

My Fiancé and I just got engaged last week on May 2nd and I already have the 30 rooms held on the Carnival Victory cruising to Cozumel Mexico May 7-11 2018! We have already had 12 people book before the save the dates have even gone out! We plan on having a symbolic ceremony in Cozumel Mexico at Nachi Cocom Beach Club and getting legally married before we depart. I have attached a picture of our Save the Dates for anyone to see. Ive also attached the link to our wedding website (its not completely done, but I'm only a week into the engagement so I think its pretty good so far lol). Save the dates are being sent out tomorrow. I also have already bought by bridesmaid dresses and shoes and will add pictures if anyone would like to see those just let me know!

 

Some more details about my wedding planning so far: My fiancé decided that it would be cool for us to do our bridesmaid and groomsmen proposals with a Mexico theme. Therefore we have bought a bunch of mini sombreros, mustaches, nd flower clips that we are sending to the potential wedding party along with mini bottles of Jose Cuervo and a lime. Along with the items an instruction letter will be attached. In that letter the wedding party will be instructed to take a picture of them wearing the items listed above and taking the shot and send that picture to us to accept being apart of the wedding party. We will then take the pictures and create a poster to be displayed at the wedding with description of who each person is and how they know the bride and groom.

 

For Nachi Cocon, we are having a symbolic ceremony. We will be having the Mexican buffet dinner option (because how do you get married in Mexico and NOT eat Mexican food). One of our family friends will be coming on the cruise to celebrate with us and she and her daughter will be doing our photography. we are also getting the additional extras of the Mariachi Band to play during cocktail hour and the fire dancers!

 

We decided to invite anyone and everyone to our wedding as to not hurt any feelings. We planned on only about 50 people coming but after having 12 people book before save the dates even went out, I'm guessing we will have much more! Which I am thrilled about!

 

I would like to put welcome bags together for all of our guests coming on the cruise, so any ideas are welcomed!

 

 

 

 

Here is the link to our wedding website: https://www.theknot.com/us/ittakes2toturner

 

Congrats to all of my fellow brides!!!! I know you all must be just as excited as I am!!!

 

Congrats! I chose Nachi Cocom too!!! If you remember let me know how it goes. I've had a pleasant experience this far. Your wedding website is too cute

Hi guys, this board says it's for honeymoons too so I thought I'd say hello.

 

I proposed to my fiance in May on Celebrity Equinox, and we're getting married on May 27, 2018 locally. We booked Oceania Insignia for our honeymoon. I'm really excited, it gets great reviews. It's my second marriage and his first. We are getting married in a theatre where my fiance used to work so he called in all his favours and we have a professional lighting crew working our wedding (which is delighting the photographer).

 

We are having an Alice in Wonderland theme. I will be the Red Queen and my fiance and 8 year old son are both planning to dress up as the Mad Hatter. Fun times!

Hey there, Congrats. We are also booked through Island Bliss. How many guests do you have? Did you pick a venue yet? We just had to have our dates changed due to the cruise changing itinerary from the hurricanes.

Hi! I am a 2018 Bride! I am legally married and we are having our ceromony on Sea (January 2018 on the Princess Regal Western Caribbean cruise).

 

Our party is about 40 attendees including bride and groom.

 

I am thinking of creating a welcome letter, but I am not the creative type. If you have any templates/ideas feel free to email it at metzkerwedding2018@gmail.com

 

I plan to have the bag already packed and then buy water bottles in Florida, If you have any recommendations on what else I should add or take out please let me know!

Congrats to the both of you. I will be right along with you. I'm booked on NCL March 6th 2018. Our wedding will be in St Thomas through Island Bliss. I know 2 years seems so far, but I have this feeling it's going to fly by. Have either of you told friends and family yet? If so, how were their reactions?

<3 Crystal

 

I will be getting married through Island Bliss as well! How is your planning going? Will you still be able to get marries with your original plans?

Luckily, our wedding is not until July so we were able to keep our dates the same but we did decide to switch our venue. Are you in the bliss brides FB group?

Is anyone bringing a cart to help transport your luggages/wedding stuff on the cruise? I am planning on bringing only a few items for our wedding, but buying bottles of water on port, but trying to figure out how to carry it on embankment day.

 

I saw this cart and like how it folds- It's great, but it is 15 lbs and I am traveling from Washington State to Fort Lauderdale with a 20 month old son.

Do you have to do the cart Sounds like a lot to fly with. Especially if you are already carrying your son. How about just tip the porters at the port to bring them to your room for you? Unless you're planning on giving them out right away when you board (I actually am doing something like that). If you are have others split the weight. I have WAY too much stuff to carry alone. So each of my bridesmaids is getting something to bring on. (Hope that possibly have some alternative ideas?)

Oh great idea! I talked to the customer setwice afent and they said I would have to carry it since it would be considered a carry on.

 

I will just tip them since that will be easier. We don’t need to hand it there since everyone is boarding at different times.

hi! great to see another Anthem bride! :)If you haven't joined up yet, there's a group on facebook called Royal Caribbean Brides where we've been exchanging tips and info, suggestions and experiences onboard and during the planning.Women who have already sailed have been sharing photos and how things went. I'm getting married embarkation day on Anthem 9-29-18 and found a lady on there getting married the day after me. I did save the dates about 6 months ago and am planning silk flowers too. What kind of goodies have you put in your bags?

Wen are you getting married? Its all going great so far with them, they let me customize the menu to add tacos! We are also opting to have the fire dancers during the reception.

 

The wedding is three months out, we now have over 90 people booked for the cruise! Its going to be a blast and Nacho Cocom has been so flexible with our growing party. I will keep you updated!

Hi and Congrats 2018 brides! I am a May 2019 bride on Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the seas. I am getting married on the last day of the cruise. Have any of you done this? Our package includes breakfast in bed, dinner at a speciality restaurant, cabin decorations etc, and I am wondering if we can do all of that stuff BEFORE the day of wedding... since there won't be any other time to do it. I would appreciate y'alls input!
