Two Fresh Ways to Say 'I Do' on Vacation

November 05, 2000|TIMES STAFF AND WIRES

A note to wedding planners: There are two new twists to tying the knot on vacation.

Princess Cruises, which made a splash when it posted live shots from cruise ships on its Internet site, is debuting what it calls the first "wedding cam" at sea. A camera will beam a live shot of your on-board nuptials, refreshed every minute, to friends and family via a special link on the Web site http://www.princess.com.

The camera will be available on the Golden Princess, due to launch in May with summer itineraries in the Mediterranean and winter itineraries in the Caribbean (out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.). The camera service is free and optional; weddings, which can be booked now, start at $1,400. Tel. (800) PRINCESS.

Meanwhile, Elvis Presley fans can love each other tender at a wedding chapel that opened last month in a wooded area just outside the walls of the King's Graceland Mansion in Memphis, Tenn. Previously, the visitors center served as the hitching post. The Chapel in the Woods incorporates a mural of the mansion and a replica of the stained-glass transom above its front door. Rental fees start at $350 for 1 1/2 hours. Tel. (800) 238-2010, Internet http://www.elvis.com.
