We are booked on a 3-day cruise, and we are getting married onboard the day we are in Nassau.

The more I think about it the less sense it makes (because Disney would presumably lose out on moolah from limiting it) but it worries me that the moment I can really start to plan our wedding, it may not work out! I tried to search for the answers (and was on hold with FTW for around 30 minutes before having to go back to work) and couldn't find ANYTHING one way or the other. Can anyone help a fellow cruise bride out?

Afternoon ladies!!
I'm all caught up with your chatting and photos now thankfully ... I have borrowed a few of the photos for my Pinterest board so I can share with my photographer friend. Some of the ideas are lovely and I hope we can have them re-created.

Mick and I were lucky enough to be on the Fantasy in October (the week before Sandy!) and I spoke to the on board co-ordinator about the problem I have with sand (Want CC wedding, but not on sand as allergic).

She said she didn't think it would be an issue at all, the only problem with other locations is the supply of electricity for the keyboard. But as we would like to use the wooden jetty by the Heads Up bar, it should all be fine as the bar has electricity. It also has cocktails and we sampled those for test purposes! Mick has said that he will have one waiting for me if we do manage to have our ceremony there!

Been great reading everyones updates and looking at the photos ... congrats to all. Less than 3 years to go for me now (yawn yawn)

So glad that they'll be accommodating to the sand allergy! Just be firm with Meredith that the onboard coordinator said it would be alright!!! I know that they like to say "No" to brides on land, but the onboard coordinators seem to be a lot more accommodating! (Like the sheet music vs. no sheet music issue!) I like that deck at Heads Up bar a lot! I'm interested in seeing how everything turns out! DCL did a wonderful job of transforming the D Lounge into a romantic wedding setting for me, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they set up yours!

I'm also glad to see more activity on here lately It's great to see some new faces planning their weddings!

How did you make out with your dress? I was looking at doing that, but also nervous for the same reasons. I am 128 days away and I have NO dress! (Something went wrong with my original dress, don't even want to talk about it!) I'm super stressed out ....

PERFECT!

I learned that you just have to be really specific in what you want during the comments section. I wanted my dress more ballgown then mermaid so I just wrote that in the comments section! I was so nervous but it really worked out. If you have any other questions, let me know!!

I have a quick question. I just proposed to my girlfriend on Friday down in WDW (she said yes btw).

We both have always talked about and decided we want to do a DCL wedding in Summer of 2014 on the Dream.

My question is, we have a Dream cruise booked for this August, 2013 on the 10% discount from booking on board from this past summer. If we were to book our wedding cruise now at full price, when we sail this summer on the Dream and can book the onboard discount, can we just have them apply it to the wedding cruise in 2014?

Congrats! Unfortunately, I can't answer your question as I am unsure on how re-booking works on the ship vs an existing reservation. I wonder if that is a question the normal cruise board could help answer.

You can book now and "reshop" onboard. If it's a better rate than your current reservation, they'll transfer your payments for you.

Thank you both so much!! I was really lucky with that dress (I actually have a few dresses; story about that is on my PJ).

I'm getting married in less than a month...I can't even begin to believe it and my ceremony is in 242 days!

We actually just both bought our wedding bands through amazon (df and I loveeeee amazon!) so I am hoping that our luck with online purchases will continue. And in the meantime I am waiting to see the rest of gingers photos

2013 will begin all my crazy DIY projects.

Picking the photos the last day was a bit stressful because they weren't ready to be viewed until 4pm and everything had to be turned in by 10pm. I hadn't packed yet since we spent the whole day in the cabana at castaway, early dining, etc. It would have been alot easier without the kids in the mix. So, i was glad that there were only 250 pics or so to pick from. I was overwhelmed with that because of all the events of the last day.
The outlook was beautiful and our pianist need a wonderful job with the music. Oh, meredith had told me we couldn't bring sheet music only cd if the music wasn't on the list. The onboard coordinator said you can send sheet music.
do you have any more photos that you had taken that i could have a look at for some ideas? Thanks,

Lovely, lovely dress!!!!
My sister bought her gown from an online store in HK .. it was stunning and I would steal it for my wedding but I couldn't even pull it up past my knees! The shame!

We'll no doubt be hearing lots more about your plans as they form.
As someone else has said, it's fine to transfer your payments .. don't forget that if you use a TA, name them when making the booking and you should get a few extra onboard credits.

Programs/Champagne Celebration

Hello Past & Future Brides ...

Did you have "Wedding Programs" ... or are you planning on having them?
If you did, did you feel that they were not worth having or did you find them helpful?

For the champagne celebration, did anyone "stage" the cake and have it served another time, maybe at dinner? If so, were you happy with your decision?
