    Please do not blindfold him lol. It will be fine. you can always board separately and discuss which parts of the ship each of you will stick to

    You’ll probably get a whole bunch of different opinions on this. Personally, I’m fine with fiance seeing me on the day – we’re doing a first look anyway, so he’ll see me all dressed up before the ceremony.

    If you really want to avoid him seeing you, could you maybe arrive at the cruise at different times/with different people? If you board the ship 30 minutes before him, then you’ve got extra time to get dressed, and you don’t need to worry about him seeing you 🙂

    Yeah I wouldn’t blindfold him. Poor guy! It’s really up to you, Darling Husband saw me prior to the wedding, in my dress. A common thing now is to do pictures before the ceremony, people do first looks. There is no rule, just want YOU want to do. Besides boarding separately I don’t see a way around him seeing you.

    @bam_461:  in that case, I still think that it’s fine if he sees you. Maybe you can just wait on opposite sides of the room and not talk to each other. 

    I’m doing a first look so I obviously don’t care about it for me at all =)

    Wouldn’t bother me one bit. He sees me all the time, this time I’ll be in a fancier dress;)

    You need an option in your poll for, “Of course he can see me, this is a silly and antiquated superstition.”

    @KCKnd2:  That’s kind of what I was going to say.

    You don’t seem to have the luxury of doing the traditional not seing each other, so don’t worry about it. Don’t blindfold him. It would put him at risk, plus it would probably embarass him.

    Of course he can see you! I’d much rather that than worry about him trying to get on or off a boat blindfolded….I’m actually betting the cruise line was kidding about that and for safety reasons might not allow it.

    Hahaha please don’t blindfold him! We had a first look so he saw me all done up before our ceremony. It wasn’t important to us that we not see each other before hand. If this is important to you though, can you guys just board separately??

    Darling Husband and I spent the night together befoer the wedding at our apartment.  We then drove to his parent’s house to get ready since the wedding was there.  He was around while I was getting my hair done and saw me during that.  I then had him stay on one side of the house and I went to the other as we both got ready.  My Maid/Matron of Honor and family members were in charge of getting him placed outside to wait for me for the first look.  =)

    Normally, I’m all for the groom shouldn’t see the bride until she walks down the aisle (and I do not like first look), but in your situation, I’d put that aside and just go through customs like normal. The blindfold seems really unnecessary.
