What did you end up doing? 

Our cruise has been changed 7 times already in the past 16 months.

We are hopefully going in Oct on Odyssey of the Seas.

Hey Thjeepster, 

Just checking in to see how you're doing. I think you will be the first of us brides to actually get married on a ship since Covid happened and everything shut down? From everything I've read, it appears  Royal has their ducks in a row and they have a method for cruising that seems to be working pretty well.  I excited for you and wish you good luck from now until your sail date😁

Hello Runner!!!

yes my fiancé will hopefully be the first bride in the group to get married. Only 47 days until the cruise leaves. 
I’m getting very anxious but she’s getting nervous because of all the other times it’s been cancelled or changed. 
hopefully we will get to cruise and get this done lol. Been planning since July 2019. 
 

how are the plans going for you?

i’ve been stressed in the past but lately I’m trying to think positively. I rather be the stressed one and not her, it’s her day and it should be perfect.

Hello Thjeepster, 

I'm so glad to hear things are finally falling into place for you. It seems to me like you've been waiting forever so I can only imagine how you have been feeling. I think keeping a positive attitude is key to keeping your sanity at this point. (We keep telling ourselves, as long as the two of us are on the ship when it sails that's all that really matters). 

Things are coming along for us. Our date isn't until May 30th of 2022 so we've got a ways to go. We're trying to be a proactive as possible when it comes to paperwork, deciding on a location for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner etc. We want to have as much as possible done ahead of time so when it does get closer and its 'go time' we aren't running around too crazy. As i'm sure you know, getting friends and family all the info they need, (hello wedding website with all the info)l earning how to use the cruise lines app for checking in, worrying about all the changes happening with cruising right now can all be so daunting. It's so stressful  sometimes I have to just stop looking at these boards because I'm overloaded. 

Anyway, I'm excited for you and keeping my fingers crossed, hoping you have a wonderful day and it exceeds all you expectations🤞

Hello Runner2013~

The countdown has begun!  37 more days.....praying it happens.....there are only 5 more sailings before we get on the ship!

 

Are you going thru the wedding group for Princess?  If so, make sure you ask lots of questions and make sure you get things in writing!  We had a wedding planner with the Royal Celebrations (dealt with her for over a year and 5 months) and then within the past 6 months so left the company and had to get a new planner....luckily I saved all the emails from our last one because then I could refer to what she told us and sent it to the new one!

 

We are all checked in for the cruise and have our SetSail pass....but not our luggage tags yet or our documents.....but it's getting closer!

 

Good luck with the planning with yours and if you have any questions please ask!

Hi ThJeepster,

We are going through the online wedding coordinator for Princess. So far she has been amazing. I'm very lucky, between my travel agent, who specializes in wedding cruises and was actually married on a cruise herself, and my online coordinator, all my questions have been answered which definitely makes me feel better. As you did, i've got copies of all emails and price quotes etc. just in case anything should happen going forward. 

One of my biggest fears is leaving paperwork behind. I've already told my guy he will also be carrying copies of all paperwork in his suitcase, and i'm also thinking of mailing a copy to his folks in Florida. For something this important you can never be too prepared right:)
