Disney Cruise Brides - Let's Chat about our Weddings/VR's!

JANUARY 2010 - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THE END OF THE THREAD. PRICES AND OPTIONS HAVE CHANGED SINCE MY VR -



I am about 120ish days from my VR...getting excited!

Alittle history..My DH and I have been together for 11 years and only got married on August 3, 2007. We have a DD who just turned 10..and DH has a son from a previous marriage who is 15.
We had planned a B2B Disney cruise with about 15 friends that we met on a DCL Cruise in 2005 and have stayed close and vacationed with many times. We decided to do a courthouse marriage and then have the "wedding" on the ship where all of our very close friends will be and have a DFTW!!

So..I am working with Cathy..(making her crazy I am sure) and getting ready to send in my packet next week..I am having a hard time choosing music!

My Dress:


DD's Dress (smaller of course):


Bridemaids Flowers:


So...comeon!! Let's talk about past and future DCL VR's!!

I too am doing a VR on DCL (on the Wonder) in September. I am so excited and can't wait for it to hurry and get here. Looks like you are a little ways before me (we have 165 days until we cruise). I love your dress. I have a photo of mine posted on my PJ (link below) along with the flowers I picked. I too am having a hard time with the music. I tried youtubing to find what some of the songs sounded like, but still didn't pick any. I want to get our stuff mailed in so it's done, but haven't done it yet. Also have not picked the cake flavor/filling. I am working with Cathy also (is she the only DCL DFTW person?) I am planning a sand ceremony and have talked to her about that (I was concerned about being able to bring the sand home). Have you read or heard anything about bringing home your flowers and/or cake?

also wanted to say congrats on the 50#!!! Thats amazing. I just started getting serious with trying to get some weight off. I started faithfully working out at our YMCA just over a week ago and I actually really am enjoying it. I just looked into the WISH board and posted there over the weekend, I have to get a little thing posted on my signature.

This is a great site with several of the music clips!
http://www.bride2b.co.uk/advice/music/music.asp

I started last April and other than not being able to work out for several months due to a hernia repair, I am still moving down..made 50.5 this weekend

I picked yellow cake with strawberry mousse..I would love a lemon cake but don't like any of the fillings that would go along

I picked the tropical bouquet for myself, but I am changing the flowers from orange and pink to white and jade roses. Shirley from "The Perfect Gift" is making the bridesmaids and my DD's bouquets

I did see your husbands shirt...you got that on Ebay? I am thinking of going to Tommy Bahama and getting him and DsS matching shirts

Wow, again, congrats, that is wonderful 50# in less than a year. Thanks for the site, I am checking out the music. I want to get my paperworked filled out so I can get it sent in. It is just hubby and I so we don't have others that we need to get their reservation numbers and stuff from. (a little sad about that, but it's ok)

Hey ladies, quick question. Can we do VR at Castaway Cay, or just onboard? I'd really prefer to have it right on the beach, but so far all the PJ's i've seen i think are on board?

Only 2 places you can have the VR..the Catallic Lounge(Wonder)/Sessions(Magic) or on Secret Deck 7

To have it on Secret Deck 7...you must have less than 20 people including B&G
I am at 15! I am so glad that I could have it on deck..because it seems more "Tropical" than a Lounge

You can do your VR renewal on the beach at Castaway Cay. That's what my wife and I are doing in August. I read other reports that said they really want it to be weddings, but they gave us no problems at all when we called. In fact, the VR onboard were all booked, but the island was open.

Hmm..that is very interesting...When I asked about CC..thy said only the two places are allowed to have VR
We will have 3 stops at CC on our B2B so it wasn't for lack of available days

I've seen a TR that they did the VR on Castaway Cay, so it is possible, but I guess it's who you talk to and when things are scheduled.
