The $20 covers the cake and champagne. I know it doesn't seem like you get anything for it but at the end of the day it is worth the $20. We had to pay for 20 extra people and we did not mind. It does feel like Disney Nickles and dimes you to death when it comes to the cake upgrade, boutineers, flowers and other stuff. But what wedding venue doesn't. I do have to say the pianist did a wonderful job playing the songs we wanted and then playing additional songs after the ones we listed ran out. Also we had Andy perform our ceremony and he was awesome.

Got the e-mail and after a few mixed thoughts and emotions, I directly went online to discover her exact job posted. The closing date on the application was midnight of the 3rd (last night) so I presume that we'll have a temp until the new DCL wedding coordinator is hired, trained, and takes over the position. I'm glad I'm not getting married until September, or else I might be slightly concerned! But I've met a wonderful and capable onboard wedding coordinator, and with all of Shanda's current notes, you should all rest assured that everything will turn out just as magical as planned!

You know whats funny. I originally thought I was going to have to pay ontop of the $20 per each guest additional for cake and champagne. So when I found out that covered it I was like yay lol.

Passports/Passport Cards vs Birth Certificate

Did anyone have a hard time traveling with just the BC with ID rather than a passport? Getting on/off the ship? I have a passport, but guests are asking.

I LOOOVE love love your pictures! We are planning a VR in 2014 and debating about using on board photographers or to hire our own. If you don't mind sharing how much they were? It's absolutely gorgeous! I know I have so much time to plan lol I'm just so excited!

I have to make so many phone calls and actually secure a date but there isn't any 2014 dates on the cruise website =/ so does that mean I can't book anything? Also, does anyone know what happens if my husband gets deployed? Is there a special military clause for a refund?

THANKS!!

I have to give some back story to them first. We looked at photographers for weeks because it was one of the most important things for us.

After much searching we found Divine Light Photographers and we ell in love with their work. After meeting with them (they are a married couple) we had to book them.

We booked the mid grade package that they offer and it cost around $4,000. This included 8-12 hours of photographer from 2 photographers and an album.

I would highly recommend them. Although the price may seem a bit high I could not have hoped for more. My wife and I agree that it was well worth the price. They took around 3-4000 photos throughout our day so when I say that was a sampling I mean it.

We just did not feel comfortable not being able to see a portfolio for someone before the wedding. So that is why we did not go with an on board.

Fantastic photos! Your photographer did a great job showcasing the Outlook and capturing you and your wife's connection. I especially loved the sunset pics on the ship! How did you get to the cloisters on Nassau?

We used a limo service. It was very fast to get there. We got very lucky our wedding fell on election day in Nassau so all of the shops were closed as well as all government buildings. This meant that the customs/shops building at port was empty, it also meant no traffic. The cloisters wanted $1,000 for 2 hours use. We opted not to pay and just try our luck with the general public. The cloisters is open to general public paying just reserves it for you. We spent around 2 hours there and not a single tourist showed up the entire time.
