Bride-to-be bumped from cruise on wedding weekend

 Bride-to-be Dawn Frazer goes through all of the RSVP's to her upcoming destination wedding in Mexico, where she and her fiance Jake will tie the knot in December.
"It's a four night cruise so we get to spend some time on the cruise and then we're actually having our ceremony and reception, at a beach club in Cozumel Mexico," Frazer said.
She sent out the invitations in February giving her guest extras time to plan for the big wedding weekend at sea, everything was going as planned until Wednesday when one of her guests got this letter from Carnival cruises
"My aunt in New York who received a letter from Carnival pretty much stating that the cruise was cancelled," Frazer said.
The top of the letter reads "Important cancellation notice" the letter goes on to say the ship had been chartered and they could either get a refund or reschedule.
"I was just devastated and I mean it's a financial burden on people that are flying in we have tons of deposits that we won't be able to get back," Frazer said.
In a statement Carnival cruises said, " A representative from our reservations department has contacted Ms. Frazer's travel professional and we are offering to transfer her booking, as well as those bookings in her traveling party, to Carnival Victory - a newer, larger ship than Carnival Paradise that will also be calling in Cozumel on the day of her wedding, Dec. 5. Full-ship charters do occur from time to time and, in the vast majority of instances, cruise lines are able to secure alternate travel dates for affected guests without any problems. Carnival sincerely apologizes to Ms. Frazer, as well as the other guests booked on the Carnival Paradise's Dec. 3, 2015, voyage, for any inconvenience this has caused."
However, the  new ship leaves from Miami, not Tampa which was the original port where all her guests are flying in to -- representatives from  carnival acknowledge the port change, and say they're trying to work with those passengers who are  inconvenienced with alternate travel options.
The soon to be Mrs. says she just wants to get hitched without the headache.
"It's my wedding weekend, and I've been looking forward to this my entire life, and so is y family and my fiancé and so I want to get married as we planned," Frazer said.
