You guys are awesome! From what I gleaned, I figured I'd have to talk someone into it onboard but I so appreciate you all.

I am officially booked and waiting for the call from DFTW. Trying to make some hard choices on bringing our long time photographer. And having a hard time with considering myself a bride after so many years of marriage.

Hi all,

Any brides have the later onboard ceremony at 5:30pm followed by an 8pm dinner on pirates night? (I believe this only happens on a 3day) I'm wondering did you find the ship super crowded for taking photos in other areas? Did you eat at Palos or dining rotation? Did you feel dinner was rushed to make it to fireworks? Sorry this is my main concern since I don't want to do the early ceremony and really want this later slot but just can't wrap my head around how this will work. Do you feel that your guest missed out on pirate night stuff. I think I've asked this all before but haven't gotten an answer yet.

Thanks all

I'm so glad I finally found the new page! I'm horrible at navigating DIS when I'm looking for something

I've got 55 days until final payments are due and 130 days until we set sail on the Dream on September 13th! I still haven't touched my wedding packet or linked my guest rooms together (I've got 50+ guests!) but I'm getting all sorts of favor-related crafts accomplished! (custom favor bags, door magnets, post-it-note holders, handmade mickey soaps, etc!) My dress just arrived recently, but I have to fly from Orlando to Chicago for fittings, and I finally got enough time off to schedule my first fitting later this month! I also bought a Cinderella Castle cake topper from Arribas at DTD! After booking this cruise last september, I feel like I'm finally getting things accomplished!

Check out my PJ, I just added a zillion photos the other day

Happy Planning, everyone!

Our son will be getting married on CC in September, and wanted to have all their guests at Palo that evening. We were on the Fantasy 2 weeks ago, and talked to the Palo manager who told us it would not be a problem and to let the land coordinator know. Our son advised Shanda, and she replied that it was confirmed. All of the guests are adults so this will be a great ending to a wonderful day. They were able to do this because the last night is slow at Palo; therefore if you interested in a Palo dining experience for your guests, ask.

Recent Brides - I know I saw a post on here somewhere, possibly the old thread ...

We booked our cruise and put the deposit down. When I called to have the package added, they told me that we needed the additional 20% of the wedding fee also. Is this a true statement, or should I call back later and talk to someone else? I thought I had read on here that it was not required.

When we originally booked we had to place a deposit on the cabin and on the wedding otherwise they will not reserve the wedding date.

The DFTW website is very vague about that, and I was just as surprised as you were about that "surprise" deposit you ALSO have to put down on the wedding package.... (the DFTW site makes it seem like ALL you need to reserve your wedding is the deposit on your stateroom! tsk tsk) While on the phone reserving our onboard wedding package, we had to scramble around to figure out where to get an extra $500 we weren't expecting to spend that day! Ah well, I guess it's just less I have to pay later on!

Our Castaway Cay wedding is next Saturday...yay! We did NOT pay a deposit on the wedding package prior to reserving/confirming the wedding date. This was our payment timeline:

Nov 2010: cruise booking window for 2012 was released; stateroom was booked and deposit paid

Feb 2011: wedding package was added to stateroom and May 2012 wedding date confirmed

Jan 2012: cruise fare balance paid on concierge stateroom

Feb 2012: $3,500 wedding package paid

April 2012: final fees paid for additional wedding guests
