  1. My sister is interested in getting married in Bermuda during Summer 2020. She wants to take a cruise to the island and get married somewhere on the island. If we don't book the ceremony through the boat, and the boat doesn't dock for any number of reason, we are taking a huge risk. If we book through NCL then they will just do the wedding on board, but she doesn't like the options they are giving her. I am trying to find a wedding insurance company that will cover if the boat gets rerouted for any reason. Anyone use a particular company before? Thank you!

  5. Hi! I am looking for an insurance company for my sister's upcoming wedding in Bermuda. What company did you use??
  6. Hi! How did your wedding work out!? My sister wants to take an NCL cruise to Bermuda and do the ceremony on the beach. She also wants to do reception/dinner somewhere on the island. What did you do?? THANKS!
  7. Hello! My sister is planning to cruise to Bermuda for her wedding in Summer of 2020. What did you end up doing for your wedding? How'd it go? Who did you end up using for a planner? Did you do the reception on the boat. Any advice is appreciated!!
  8. Ugh I know it is SO risky! I think looking into NCL and seeing what they would be able to provide for a backup plan(such as having it aboard the ship) is a good idea. If she doesn't like that idea then maybe she does need to look into an island that has more reliable whether. Cruising from Boston to Bermuda is so affordable that many of our family and friends will be able to come. Maybe it will be best to fly in all the VIP people(parents, grandparents, best man, MOH) so that even if the ship gets redirected, the wedding could still happen? I'll have to discuss with her and she what she's willing to compromise on. Assuming everything works out fine with the cruising, has anyone been to or had a ceremony and reception on the beach in Bermuda? Is having a DJ and dance floor and dinner on the beach plausible? Or is ceremony on the beach and dinner and dancing at a restaurant/ resort more likely? What is something that you wish you knew or thought of before your wedding in Bermuda? Advice that no one told you? Things you wish you did differently? Thank you for all your advice!
  9. Hello all! I am posting on behalf of my sister. She wants to get married in Bermuda on the beach in the summer of 2020. Her fiance proposed in Bermuda and he was also born there so it is a special place for them. We live in the Boston area, have a big family, and many of them already think that it is something that will be affordable and doable for them. We can't know for sure this far out, but there could be close to 50 people coming. She decided to do a cruise to Bermuda through Norwegian because it is more affordable than flying and staying at a resort. Our cousin is a travel agent and will take care of booking the trip for the whole family. It is important for her to have the ceremony on the beach and ideally the reception would also be on the beach. She wants a traditional reception. Cocktail hour, dinner, first dance, father daughter dance, cake cutting etc. The cruise is pushing her to do the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the boat. The problem with this is it doesn't seem possible to do the tradition reception activities on the boat. Just dinner (possibly with other cruise-goers) and then going to the nightly entertainment like everyone else. She is not too flexible with that and really wants a more private wedding like you would have in a hall at home. I know it will be more costly than having NCL do the dinner since its already included. But it seems to be really important to her to have it private. So my question is, who out there has cruised to Bermuda and done ceremony and reception off of the boat? Any tips, ideas, tricks that you all have would be great. Also, what have you done in regards to insurance? Is there a wedding insurance company that you used? Or does the coordinator handle that? I have already learned that her first step is probably to talk with a couple wedding coordinator companies out there to get more of an idea what to expect. We are going to wait until after all the holiday chaos to really hit the planning stuff hard. Thank you for any and all help you can give us!
