Of course we wanna see pix Chrissy Bear!!

Last nite my fiance and I took my parents to dinner at Villa Nova (across the harbor from Electra) and we had reservations for 6:00... we wanted to try the restaurant because we thought it would be great for a rehearsal dinner. We are definately going with this place! It's beautiful, great food, great service, and great food! The funnest part was we had a window seat and got to watch two weddings going on crusing the harber -- the Athena and Destiny were floating around and it got me so excited for my wedding!

Just got back from Electra. We booked the Destiny for 6/11/2011. It's so long from now, but we will definately have lots of time to plan! I just LOVE our rep Donna and I'm excited to be working with her.


It was really quiet on the dock today. There were no afternoon weddings scheduled and only two for the evening. I guess Halloween isn't a popular day to get married.

Amy - Don't worry about booking so far in advance. We did the same thing. We booked in March of this year for a wedding a year and a half later. It's actually been great - I've learned a lot from this board and we've saved a lot of money. Our invoice is half paid for and the wedding is still a year away!

Congratulations Chrissy Bear, I bet your wedding was spectacular. :)

Thanks Mrs WIllet. It's good to know I'm not the only one that had/plans to have a long engagement. There were a few people in my office that were really making me feel silly about waiting a year and a half. I don't think it's that long, plus it's more time to save $$$ so that I can have everything I've ever dreamed about :)

Don't feel silly Amy. My husband and I ( still getting used to saying husband and not fiance anymore) were engaged for 2 and a half years. We got engaged young and knew we would have a long engagement. Good Luck planning!!! :)

I cannot believe it's been almost a year since I married my husband aboard the Newport Princess last November 22, 2008! I remember the same time right now but last year, I've been so busy finalizing my weddings plans. Just wanted to share it here because I was a regular on Brides.com - this forum to get advises from brides.. :)

I cant believe how much this thread has died down :(( but let me know if there's anything I can help your girls with!

Hey girls -- just wanted to update and tell you all that I found a wedding dress this weekend! I'm so excited, and since I loved when some of you posted yours I thought I'd share mine!

I'm curious as to the personalized wine. Did you have the regular size bottles or the "split" size? And if you don't mind my asking, where did you get them and how much did they run?

For our personalized wine, we just bought Charles Shaw wine and made our own personalized labels. We did full bottles of wine and I think that the total cost of each bottle of wine with personalized labels was $2.25. It was very reasonable and it was such a hit with the guests. I just removed the labels and then applied our own labels. I then tied ribbon on the neck of the bottle in a coresponding color. They turned out really well. If you prefer to have someone make the lables for you, I found a few sites that would do personalized lables for about $1.00 a piece. Let me know if you want the website URLs. Hope that helps!
