Yeah for DCL!

I really don't have any details about the dessert party yet! I need to discuss the bar and catering with the GF when I am there for my planning session. I do know that you have to have the music piped in.

I don't have any pictures of the patio but I am going to take some when I go for my planning session in March. Janet2K had a dessert party on the patio and it was decorated beautifully. If the search function is working you should look for her report. She has pictures that show the view of the fireworks and of the area.

A little about us:

Alex is from Monk Fryston which is between Leeds and York in North Yorkshire. He is a Senior Network Consultant. When people ask me what he does I just say I.T. or computer stuff! I am from Ontario, Canada and met Alex in Bermuda about ten years ago. I am a teacher but I am currently not working. I left to take care of our daughter.

The Proposal:

What proposal?! There hasn't been a proposal. We discussed marriage before our daughter was born and have been planning our wedding. I was thinking it would take place during Christmas, then New Year's......... and I am still waiting. No proposal means no ring!

Two Styles of Rings I would like:

Why Disney?

At first, we never considered having a Disney wedding! We were thinking about getting married in England and I really wanted to get married in a castle. There are so many beautiful castles in Yorkshire.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/weddings_in.jpg

Allerton Castle

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/castle_main2.jpg

Ripley Castle

This didn’t work out because it would be too far to travel for some guests and the cost was very high especially with the dollar to pound exchange rate. Our next choice was….

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/52f6fab1c3ad40be7d4dc29d1e054433.jpg

Hawaii

Although Hawaii is beautiful it would still be too far for guests to travel to and it would be expensive for them. We still didn't have a location.

My mom was visiting and we were planning a trip to Disney in October 2008. I went on the boards to check something and wandered over to the Wedding board. I started reading a few TR’s and my mom and I started looking at people’s wedding pictures and thought a Disney wedding would be great! Next I just had to convince Alex. During the years my family traveled to Disney quite a bit so I knew they would like the idea. Alex's family traveled all over Europe but never to the United States so his first trip to Disney was in 2005 with my family and I. His first response was no because he pictured a really Mickey themed wedding. After I showed him pictures he agreed that Disney would be a good place to have a wedding and we could make a family vacation out of it and so could our guests.

Planning Timeline

August 2007 - I called and was “penciled in” for October 30, 2008

- they initially asked me the date I was looking at, location, and the number
of guests

September - I had a 30 minute planning session on the phone. We talked more about the ceremony location, reception locations, when the contract can be signed based on ceremony and reception locations, # of guests, the minimum amount of money that needs to be spent

October 31st - I was told that my ceremony (originally SBP) and reception choices were “tentatively” being held.

January 4th – I was asked to provide information for the room block, information for the complimentary website, and asked to provide addresses for the save the dates.

January 16 – changed to WP

February 4 –list of vendors sent, menus, and planning pages

Currently - waiting for a letter of agreement which will be ready after February 29, to pay the deposit, and for my save the dates to be sent out.

I have an appointment on March 25th at Malindy Elene Bridal Salon in St. Petersburg. What are the chances that I can go to one store and find "the dress"? :confused3 If not, I will have to find some other stores in Orlando.

I have a planning session scheduled for March 31st! It is scheduled for four hours at Franck's and then we have a menu tasting in the GF kitchen. I need to choose two appetizers, one salad, one sorbet, two entrees, one dessert to taste. :cool1:

Wait, you can book your planning session before you have a co-ordinator? I thought you'd have to wait to know who your planner was before you could do that? I'd love to be wrong!

So far your wedding planning sounds great. You're exactly one month after us!

So far your wedding planning sounds great. You're exactly one month after us!

They recommend that you go for your planning session 4-6 months before your wedding. That way the prices will be locked in. (The menu and bar prices I have say the prices are valid until September 2008 so I am expecting an increase) I asked if I can go earlier than 6 months because I don't want to go by myself, DF cannot go at all, and March is the only time my mom can go with me. I think you can go for a planning session any time after your letter of agreement and contract are signed. Right now I do not have a planner but I will by the time I go for the planning session. HTH!

orangetiggs
02-17-2008, 02:51 PM
we were told we could go earlier than 6 months as we were originally going just after 12 months and they said it was fine but couldnt lock prices till 6 months, we just got back last week and it was just over six months for us

shezfrombermuda
02-17-2008, 05:19 PM
Maybe it depends who your co-ordinator is. I originally asked if I could go in February for the planning session. I was told no, because that would be two weeks before our contract would be made. She said if the contract wasn't signed then you could only do a site visit. I am just happy I am going in March because I don't think they were too keen on that.

I really like this bouquet. I like how it is wrapped but I think it would look nicer with pink roses. I am not sure about the calla lilies.

These colors are wrong with your new color scheme, but it gives an idea how the orchids and calla lillies look together.

Thanks for posting your bouquet autumnbride. I really like how that colour of calla lilies go with the bright green orchids. Those would have gone perfectly with the pink/green colour scheme. Maybe if the two bridesmaids wore pink instead of brown they could have bouquets like that and I could have the last bouquet in pink? Would this look okay? I am colour challenged! :confused3

autumnbride2B
02-19-2008, 10:29 AM
I think that would work. You could have tiny touches of green in throughout your decor as an accent color to tie the look together with the pink and brown.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favorite flowers are orchids!!! I want orchids too. I love the mix with roses. I'm thinking of going with that myself. Excellent choices. I just realized after I posted the bouquet with the peonies and the orchids. I'm having a hard time deciding between those three flowers as well. That bouquet is gorgeous!

hello. i had problems with my colors as well. i originally wanted all cream and then i decided i wanted peaches from light to orange and that is what i go. but i also loved the look of brown in the flowers and orchids or course. laura from floral did this and i loved it.

i thought maybe if you used these brownish orchids and pink roses and then for you white orchids and pink roses or something it might be beautiful.
just for refrence i had roses (orange, peach and white), orchids (brown and white) lithianthus (sp)
hope this helps

I have always liked orchids but peonies are really nice as well. I don't know if I would mix those two together though. All peonies would be really nice. Decisions, decisions!

I am so happy. :cheer2: My letter of agreement is finally ready to be sent back! It feels like things are finally progressing. It has taken longer than it should have because I had to have a new letter of agreement made because I messed up and changed the room block too many times! Maybe it was just a blonde moment(s) but I had trouble with this. I didn't do a good job of guessing where everyone (if they are coming) might stay. I have a few people that I thought would stay at Port Orleans who are staying at All-Star Music and most of the people that I thought would stay at Port are saying that they are going to stay at the Beach Club!

Things I learned about the room block:

- don't make reservations for yourself or anyone before your save the dates come out because you will have to cancel these and rebook through group reservations to get the discount

- room for the bride/groom must be on the room block

- if vacations packages are booked and guests are staying at other disney hotels not on your block, you are still able to use their reservation numbers

- you must guarantee the number of room nights on your block minus 20 percent

- if your guest count decreased alot you can call and have your room night guarantee lowered

After the letter of agreement is received, it takes 7 - 10 days to process it and then the save the dates are sent out

I think I am going to have the "Cinderella's Event" menu with a couple of changes. It includes:

Cocktail Hour:
- premium cheese display with grapes, berries, crackers, and baguettes
- mushrooms in a puff pastry
- crab cakes with mustard creme

Plated Dinner:
- shrimp cocktail (want to change to a cooked shrimp appetizer)
- Caesar Salad
- seared beef filet paired with grilled chicken breast, blackberry demi, yukon
gold mash, seasonal vegetables
- rolls and butter
- Cinderella's White Chocolate Slipper: Chocolate Mousse, Whipped Cream
and raspberries, castle silk screen plate
- coffee, decaf, hot teas

- $120 a person + tax and service charge

Do you think this is too much food? I might take off the slipper so people eat the cake!

My favourite but I would like the stripes to be a pale pink and to have pink orchids. My mom thinks it would be too pink.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/large_image-3.jpg

Nice but I think it will be way too much cake.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/cake22.jpg

Maybe without the pearls.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/cake46.jpg

I like this if it were pink instead of blue.

In my contract it says that you are only allowed to take the top "anniversary" layer of the cake and that is it. My mother thought this was absolutely terrible and made me ask about it. You are allowed to give them the small cardboard cake boxes to put cake in if you are going to hand out them out as favours. You are not allowed to put any cake in a gladware containers. Sorry mom!

I don't know why they say this - they boxed up the remaining half of the bottom layer and a chunk from the middle layer along with our anniversary layer and sent it off with us, and I know they've done that for lots of other brides.

I vote for the first, stripey cake cuz it's unique! ;)

Maybe they put that in the contract for health reasons and if you end up taking the cake and eating it, it is at your own risk? I can't see getting sick from eating leftover cake though.

I decided I like the stripey cake the best. Now I just have to decide if I want it to be pink or green.

Today I booked Ana from Beaute Speciale to do hair and makeup for the wedding and MK pictures. I am also going to have a trial done this month because I want to see what she can do with my flat, no body hair! I showed my hairdresser here a picture of a half up/half down wavy hairdo and she just laughed! She thinks it wouldn't last for half an hour! After the trial I will post pictures.

I booked the MK bridal portrait session as well. Would you believe they are not doing pictures for TWO WEEKS because someone is practicing for a new show in front of the castle. After the wedding, Alex convinced me to go back to Orlando for a few days so we are leaving on November 9th. I am lucky because the first available date for the pictures is November 9th!

I haven't been to the states since July 2006 because my daughter doesn't have a passport yet. It has taken me this long to get her a citizenship card but American border control assure me that I will be able to fly tomorrow. I am still hesitant and won't believe it until we take off!

I am also going to have a trial done this month because I want to see what she can do with my flat, no body hair! I showed my hairdresser here a picture of a half up/half down wavy hairdo and she just laughed! She thinks it wouldn't last for half an hour! After the trial I will post pictures.

I booked the MK bridal portrait session as well. Would you believe they are not doing pictures for TWO WEEKS because someone is practicing for a new show in front of the castle. After the wedding, Alex convinced me to go back to Orlando for a few days so we are leaving on November 9th. I am lucky because the first available date for the pictures is November 9th!

What time are your pictures on the 9th? My Magic Kingdom Pictures are also on the 9th. Mine are at 6am!

Nevermind....Sorry if I scared you! I scared myself too....My pictures are the 7th the day after the cruise. Whoa...I was all panicky and called Dara at the photography department before I even checked my notes. I felt foolish. LOL I really hope we can meet up on the cruise and my offer still stands if you want to watch a wedding on Castaway Cay! LOL

Oh I am glad yours are on the 7th! I was scared for a second until I read your next post! I can get my pictures done after the cruise but not later than the 9th because we are flying out that day. Yeah, let's make arrangements to meet on the cruise. That will be fun!

When I went to look for a wedding dress I was asked what type of wedding dress I was looking for. My reply was an ivory/off white dress with straps, plain but not too plain with some beading and definitely no train! The first dress I really liked was strapless with beading on the bodice, and an Aline ball gown type skirt. I kept that dress in the change room while I tried on others. I was worried that I wouldn't get that "this is the one feeling" like I have heard others talk about but I did! I am getting this dress:

I did not order the dress with the pearl straps or the broach. I might put a different broach or sash around the dress.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/62.jpg

This pictures shows the top of the dress better but I think the bottom of the dress looks better in the first picture.

I am getting the dress in a blush pink colour. The seamstress said she could take the train off but I think I will keep it and I think I will have some of the crinoline taken out so it isn't so full.

I have no pictures of me wearing the dress because the store had a strict no picture policy and we couldn't even sneak a picture. I have to wait until August to get it!

We left for our planning session on March 24th. I was a little worried because there were all these posters in the airport saying you have to have a passport to travel to the United States. My daughter still doesn't have a passport but we were able to travel without any problems. I did have some problems trying to get out of the US though!

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/toSherie010-1.jpg

This is us checking into Pop Century. My mother is already worrying about how we are going to get all our stuff to Florida since we have this much stuff for three people for a week. Oh and we did a little bit of shopping.


Hair and Make-Up Trial

Lilly and Ana from Beaute Speciale came to do a make-up and hair trial for me. I didn't have any hair pictures. I really wanted a half up half down style but I know with my hair that is impossible. I told Ana that I wanted some kind of bun. For makeup, I don't usually wear much.

Here is how my hair looked:

I like this but now I am wondering if I should have something smoother looking. :confused3

Make-Up:

This is the only picture I have, the rest are blurry. I don't usually wear alot of make-up so Lilly didn't want to overdo it. The make-up stayed on all day and my hair stayed in so I was pleased.

On March 31st, my mom, daughter, and I drove over to Franck's for our planning session. We met our planner, Ken Weaver. Does anyone else have Ken?

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02290-1.jpg

With Ken, we discussed entertainment, transportation, food and beverages, all the other details that were on the planning pages. We took a break and did the cake tasting.

I requested cake and cake flavours that I wanted to taste. I didn't realize that they would still send all the regular flavours as well. So we had alot of cake and fillings.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02301-1-1.jpg

We tried almond, carrot, chocolate, yellow, orange, lemon, and marble cake. The fillings were bavarian cream, strawberry mousse, dark chocolate mousse, amaretto, german chocolate, tropical mousse, raspberry mousse, bailey's, buttercream, and white chocolate mousse.

We decided the bottom layer will be chocolate cake with raspberries and raspberry mousse, the middle: yellow cake with raspberries and raspberry mousse, and the top: orange cake with white chocolate mousse. I think I might change the top though.

We met with Laura from floral. We discussed bouquets, centerpieces, having scattered petals down the aisle, and petals for the staged toss. Laura suggested having the 4 reception centrepieces on columns at the ceremony. She also suggested that my younger daughter carry a rose wand with one rose in it because she will only be 22 months and she doesn't think she could carry a basket. My older daughter will carry the mickey basket with petals. We also talked about table cloths and chair covers and how to decorate the dessert party in a halloween theme. It was alot of information in a short period of time. It was already 1:00PM and we had to go back to our hotel. Kid's Nite Out was coming to watch my daughter while we went back for the menu tasting.

You don't like cake! :eek: When we were at Disney, I ate cake almost everyday! Now that is not good for the diet.

I was wondering, you probably aren't allowed to take your bouquet off the ship, right? Are you going to have another bouquet made for your MK photos?
My wedding is on October 30 and my pictures are on the 9th so my flowers will not look so good! I am deciding whether or not I should have a new bouquet made (that will be alot of money and I will be going to the airport right after), if I should use one of their silk bouquets or I should go with no flowers?

I was most excited about the cake tasting too. It was kind of embarrassing when Ken said he wasn't sure if I was getting ALL the cake and fillings that I had requested. The trip was successful, now I just have to wait for the BEO.

Thanks Cam, I am not going to wear a veil or a tiara. The woman in the bridal store insisted I try one on because she thought once I saw it on I would really want one but I didn't. I might have them put in some clips that have crystals on the end of them.

Long time lurker just joinging in the posting. Everthing looks great. I think your hair looks really nice the way it is in the pictures, but you should make sure that it is what YOU want!

As for the flowers, I thinks carrie's idea is great. It is SO much cheaper than going with Disney, and the pictures are far away, so you wouln't see the flowers really well anyway. I am making silk floral boquets for my BMs because that will cost me about $50 for all three at the most while going through Disney was going to be (hold onto something) almost $600 for what I wanted! :scared1: Mine aren't perfect, but they will work. I really think that going cheap and fake is the way to go for the photo shoot!

We met Ken for the menu tasting but first went to take a look at the White Hall Room. This isn't how it looked when we saw it. People were moving DJ equipment and tables so I couldn't really get any good pictures. Ken is going to email me some.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/WhitehallRoom-1.jpg

The patio. This is what the Grand Floridian Banquet chairs look like.

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02330-1.jpg

Next, we went into the Grand Floridian kitchen. The kitchen was much larger than I thought it would be and there were a few conventions going on so the chefs were hard at work. There was a sign that had Congratulations Alex and Sherie on it which I thought was nice.

The first thing we tried was the mushroom pasta. I do not have a picture but it was ravioli stuffed with mushroom covered in a vegetable broth. It was very good and wasn't heavy.

My favourite

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02338-1-1.jpg

On the menu I chose, it had shrimp cocktail on it. I do not like cold shrimp so I asked if they could make a hot shrimp appetizer. They made jasmine rice with shrimp in a malibu rum and curry sauce. It was excellent. The curry wasn't too strong and the coconut wasn't too sweet.

Caesar Salad

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02339-2.jpg

The salad was very good.

Raspberry Champagne Sorbet

Beef in a demi-wine sauce and parmesan crusted chicken and mushroom sauce with dauphinoise potatoes

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02342-2.jpg

The beef was excellent and so was the demi-wine sauce. We tried the blackberry demi as well but it was a bit too sweet. The parmesan chicken was okay but I thought it was heavy and so was the mushroom sauce. We loved the potatoes!

Cinderella Slipper

http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj92/sherieo/DSC02346-1.jpg

The chocolate mousse was quite rich and was good with the raspberry sauce. I thought it was white chocolate mousse in the slipper but it is whipped cream. It was very good!

We decided the final menu will be:

- Shrimp or Italian Wedding Soup
- Caesar Salad
- Raspberry Champage (Slipper or Flower depending on the budget)
- Beef in demi-wine sauce and a seared chicken breast with a pinot grigio sauce
- Wedding Cake

In regards to your hair, I was thinking the old school bun. Just plain and simple. I think it would look very chic and I mean, would you really want people's attention on your hair or your dress?? Your dress is so gorgeous that I think keeping your hair simple would balance it out but that is just me.

Hi Chantelle,

I think I might have been looking at your newsletter the other day! I was doing a search for newsletters to get an idea of content and layout. Did you post examples?

My poor bulldog Barclay died. I think the climate here wasn't that great for him and he always seemed to have health problems. He was great with children and very friendly and we miss him. I always thought it was funny because people were afraid to come in my house if they saw him. They thought he was a guard dog and he didn't even bark! Can you post a picture of your dog please?

I am hoping to do a 2010 VR and I was thinking of having the reception at the Attic, but now I am leaning more towards the Whitehall room so I can't wait to see your TR. Your DP sounds nice too. I might consider that instead of IllumiNations. It would be much easier to have them both at the same place.

Just caught up on your journal... everything looks so great! What designer and style # are your dress? It is stunning!

It is made by Anne Barge and it is style #399. I just found a couple of pictures that you can see the detail better so I am going to post those.
Thanks for reading. :goodvibes

WOW your girls are so pretty! I love the smile on the baby's face!

Thanks! I really like this picture because it is rare that they were all sitting at the same time and smiling long enough to take the picture.

Such beautiful daughters! So sorry about your doggie. Bulldogs look so fierce, but they can be so sweet. My FH wants one.

Thanks! You should think about getting a bulldog. Barclay was a real character and had such a good disposition. Definitely not fierce. :)

Your girls are adorable! I bet McKenna can't wait to be your flower girl

She can't wait! Everyday she wants to talk about the plans for the wedding. She really wants to be a flower girl but keeps insisting that she is wearing a blue dress. :sad1:

I didn't buy my 7 year old daughter the same dress because I was thinking she would wear more of a junior bridesmaid dress or something similar to the bridesmaid dresses.

Should she wear the same dress as her sister or something like these:

If you wait until your 10th, you have an extra year to plan and read people's TR's and PJ's and get more ideas. Sometimes this has been bad for me because I get more expensive ideas!

Better Pictures of my dress:

It is a very nice dress BUT I am starting to get the feeling that it is over the top and I am going to look like a giant cream puff or something. I showed a picture of it to a friend who said "Oh that is very dramatic". Is that good or bad? :confused3 I am starting to wish I chose the more traditional looking dress. It can't be exchanged so I hope this feeling goes away when I see it again. That will be in August.

Sometimes I start panicking too about being a big giant white puff, but then I remember that I am the bride, and I'm allowed on one day only to be a big giant white puff. I think it helps to look at pics of other brides--no matter how small the wedding party, they never look out of place. And I think you'll look beautiful in your dress!

That is part of my concern plus I know prices will most likely go up on there own by than too. So I could end up with almost the same wedding but it just costs more.

After looking at the cake thread, I want to change my cake to a more expensive Disney cake. I have to stop looking! :) I think they do increase the price each year, unfortunately.

I totally agree. You loved it for a reason and I am sure when you put it on again you will have that same love back.

Sherie -- Your dress is absolutely stunning. When my friend was shopping for her dress last fall I told her she had to pick one she'd never ever choose for anything else, that it couldn't look like an evening gown or a dress she'd wear for a black-tie affair. This was her chance to choose her dream gown. She did and LOVED wearing it on her wedding day in March. I think we all get nervous about the gowns we are waiting for (and me even more so because I have no idea what mine will look like when it fits! ;) ). You will look so gorgeous on your day and you will never regret that you wore the gown you fell in love with. :hug:

Cam you are absolutely right, it is the dress that I fell in love with and it is the one day that I can wear anything I want. I think part of the reason I am nervous is because I don't know how it will fit. The sample size I tried on didn't even do up in the back and they had to clip it on and I want some crinoline taken out from underneath so it isn't so poofy. Also, I think I will have a couple of people thinking: what is she wearing!! But oh well. I am sure when I see the dress again, I won't feel this way. Thanks for the words of wisdom! :goodvibes

All this food is part of one of the menu packages and I think it will be way too much food. During the pre-reception, instead of having two appetizers and a cheese display, I think I will just have a fruit display. I dont' want people to eat too much before dinner. During dinner, I am not going to have the cinderella slipper dessert because I want people to eat the wedding cake. The food will be eaten starting at 3:30PM and will end at 10PM.

Anyway, when I saw your dress and the concerns/thoughts you were having about it, it was so much like me! I got married last week in a very similar dress, and I was a bit worried as the date got closer about wearing such a big dress but on the day it was unbelievable.
Everyone basically gasped when they saw it, they will do the same for you!

I spent all last night filling out our worksheet, which i had been procrastinating. I think it took like 45 minutes to pick our music! :rotfl2: i'm so bad at decision making!

That would be great if we could get a picture together! Where are you getting pictures done after the ceremony?

I am extremely bad at decision making! I have changed from the yacht club gazebo to Sea Breeze Point to the Wedding Pavilion. I haven't chosen any music yet because I can't decide and now I think I might change my cake and flowers! Thanks for the dress compliments. :goodvibes

October 31st - I was told that my ceremony (originally SBP) and reception choices were “tentatively” being held.

This may have been my fault! :worried: Hope you weren't too :furious:!! We would have liked to book WP, but a wishes just wasn't in the cards! i'm sure you will LOVE it though!!

Today I booked Ana from Beaute Speciale to do hair and makeup for the wedding and MK pictures.

ack, :rotfl2: Ok, we're even now methinks. I take SBP, you take Randy, I take Stan, you take Ana. :rotfl2: at least we're sharing!!

I booked the MK bridal portrait session as well. Would you believe they are not doing pictures for TWO WEEKS because someone is practicing for a new show in front of the castle. After the wedding, Alex convinced me to go back to Orlando for a few days so we are leaving on November 9th. I am lucky because the first available date for the pictures is November 9th!

Not sure, we just booked Misty. Do you have plans yet?? I'm half tempted to see if she'd go to the Yacht Club and take some pics of us on that pier by the lighthouse... it is just across the lake from SBP, right??

Originally I wanted to get married on the 31st but didn't want to pay the extra money because it was a Friday. I had SBP held on the 30th and then I changed to the WP (my parent's idea) in January or February. I would be happy with either because they are both really nice. It wasn't until recently that I thought just for a moment....if I am spending the Friday minimum amount anyway I could change to the 31st. I instead will keep everything as it is and try to reduce my BEO.

ack, :rotfl2: Ok, we're even now methinks. I take SBP, you take Randy, I take Stan, you take Ana. :rotfl2: at least we're sharing!!

I couldn't get my MK pictures done on the 31st, 1st, or 2nd. Lisa (goldeelox) and I are both on the Disney November 2-6 cruise so we couldn't get our pictures done until after that. She is getting hers done on the 7th,and the 8th is already booked. That is why I am on the 9th. I would call right away and see if they are doing any from the 3rd - 6th.

I have plans to get pictures done at the GF before the ceremony. Randy is coming to the Beach Club to take "getting ready" pictures so we are going to take some outside there as well. Come over! :goodvibes It is only a five or so minute walk!

Cam you are absolutely right, it is the dress that I fell in love with and it is the one day that I can wear anything I want. I think part of the reason I am nervous is because I don't know how it will fit. The sample size I tried on didn't even do up in the back and they had to clip it on and I want some crinoline taken out from underneath so it isn't so poofy. Also, I think I will have a couple of people thinking: what is she wearing!! But oh well. I am sure when I see the dress again, I won't feel this way. Thanks for the words of wisdom! :goodvibes

I am a bit traumatized in this respect, as well. The gown I tried on was a size 8 or 10 and it only came to the edges of my back, so I have no idea what it will look like when it fits me (oh, and it was at LEAST 6 inches too long -- I am very short!). I am brainwashing myself into thinking it will be fine. ;)

I should look dramatic, shouldn't I!!!



All this food is part of one of the menu packages and I think it will be way too much food. During the pre-reception, instead of having two appetizers and a cheese display, I think I will just have a fruit display. I dont' want people to eat too much before dinner. During dinner, I am not going to have the cinderella slipper dessert because I want people to eat the wedding cake. The food will be eaten starting at 3:30PM and will end at 10PM.

It's good to hear others are thinking like us in this respect, too, though our reception is during the day (11-4), so we are even less inclined to go overboard on food. I am thinking we may want to just do fruits and pastries at the pre-reception, a multi-course meal at the reception including a duo plate, and no desserts other than the cake. We are going to have the cake plated with 2 pieces on each plate -- one of each layer so that everyone gets a piece of chocolate and a piece of whatever our other layer is. I really think the glass slipper dessert is so beautiful and so rich that people might not even touch the cake. :eek:

Your cruise signs are awesome! :lovestruc

Your dress will look great! I am very short, so short, I didn't even check to see how much too long the dress was! I am sure the seamstress will do a good job.

My old cake:

I really like the old cake and chose it so I didn't receive a Disney cake CD. After looking at one of the cake threads I decided to change to this cake. I think it was Pixie08's.

My new Disney cake:

You two must be big Halloween buffs...me too! The Bachelorette party is going to be Halloween thememd. I've told a few friends that my wedding is going to be a costume wedding...tehehe lol. Not really though!

I love your new choice for the cake. It is B E A U T I F U L! Your first one looked wonderful too, but this is just so much more fun ::yes::

Also, your dress is beautiful! I love full wedding dresses...I am unable to pull one off with my body type, but you will look amazing! I hope you are over your puffy wedding dress jitters.

I also think your flower girl is adorable! The 7 year old is going to look great too (my vote was for the second dress too).

Oh no! I am sorry to hear that. Can you leave your name in case anyone cancels or they change the days/times of whatever show they are practicing for in front of the castle? If not, it is good you will be able to go back and have it done. Just think, an extra trip to Disney!!:goodvibes

Are you going to MNSSHP? We usually start planning our costumes right after Halloween ends for the next year. I am a halloween buff because my birthday is on halloween and I guess I have always liked to get dressed up. Yay for a halloween bachelorette party! That sounds like lots of fun!

Thanks for all the compliments and for reading. I am over my wedding dress jitters for now. I went for a full wedding dress because it hides all the flabby parts! :rotfl2: I think a full wedding dress is good for all body types.

I am so sorry but I just have to vent!!! My FIL is visiting and he keeps going on and on about what a waste of money weddings are and what other things we could do with the money that we are wasting on the wedding. He doesn't understand why we would want to spend money to feed and give drinks to people.

My BIL told him that he had to dress up as Mickey or Minnie in order to come to the wedding and he actually asked me because he thought it was true. :rotfl2: He said he would not wear a costume and he said he would not wear a tuxedo when DF asked. He rolled his eyes when he was told characters were coming and also when we said there would be a videographer.

He is also criticizing the guest list and telling me that I shouldn't have invited three of DF's aunts who DF wanted invited.

He insisted on coming with us for every single day of the trip! He doesn't even want to go to the U.S., never mind Florida! I tried telling him that he could come for a few days or for a week but he is coming the day we get there (8 days before/after the wedding, going on the 4 day cruise, and staying a few days at Cape Canaveral!) He said he has never wanted to go on a cruise but he guesses "he will fit in" :confused3 He also says he is going to the parks but his idea of a vacation is having a 3-4 hour plus lunch with wine and drinks.........

It is my fear (and others) that at the wedding reception he is going to get extremely drunk and make a scene and have to be escorted home! :furious:

Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. I think I feel a bit better!

It isn't about money, but what you can do to make your special day....well, special. Sounds like someone needs to have a nice sit down talk with him... :badpc: LOL. No, I hope things come back around though. Hey, here is an idea...start him drinking the night before, set him loose around the pool, and he can be kicked out before the wedding :lmao:

They are very negative, very high maintainence, and say very inappropriate things. Well, in the end I decided not to invite them because I didn't want to deal with others stressing about them. I only wish it were that easy for you! I hope that it all works out for you.

I hope he thinks the wedding is beautiful and not tacky like he is thinking it will be but even if he did, he isn't the type to admit it. I don't think it is up to me to sit down and talk to him because he is not my father and DF or my BIL will not do it either. I wish they would! No matter what FIL says or does when he is drinking, it is forgotten about and nobody says anything to him!

Yes he is! I have two kids that are going so it isn't going to be a "real" honeymoon. One of my daughters is too young for the kids' club so my parents are coming to help take care of her. Next thing I knew FIL and BIL were coming as well. I don't mind my parents going because they will watch my kids and they are capable of doing their own thing. FIL and BIL will expect us to be with them all the time.

It gets better.....as soon as we get off the cruise, my parents are going home. We thought we would stay in florida a few days by ourselves. Nope, FIL and BIL are staying as well and BIL lives here so he has to be on the same flight going and coming back!!!! :headache:

I heard that you can only have limited time at the nursery. I think if your cruise is paid for, you can book online 90 days in advance. I am going to try and do this so I don't have to line up on the boat.

Lynn, I am reading your TR and your wedding and trip looked fantastic! Your pictures turned out so well! Now what is with your SIL and her white socks? She didn't go to your ceremony with socks on and no shoes did she? That is all you need when you go on your honeymoon or anniversary trip, relatives in your room!! Some people just have a lot of nerve I guess. Now I am hoping for a do-over honeymoon where NOBODY will be invited!

She had shoes but didn't wear them because she got sunburn on her feet. You know what then get a freakin pair of black flip flops rather than wearing my husbands socks! I noticed it when I was walking down the aisle and was like UMMMM OK. She ruined the big family picture I seriously am buying shoe stickers and putting them over her socks before I hang the picture up,seriously.

She even got mad when my MIL told her to puther shoes on for the one picture of Tim and I with his brothers and sisters and got made when we got to the grand floridian cafe because they wouldn't let her in the Dining room before she put her shoes on.

I heard that you can only have limited time at the nursery. I think if your cruise is paid for, you can book online 90 days in advance. I am going to try and do this so I don't have to line up on the boat.

I think you are allowed 10 hours if you book online, then when you get on the ship you can check out what other times are available. I am getting soo excited! You have to be too! We just have to get through the summer and we are set!

I am thinking about trying to get a Wishes Cruise on November 8th leaving from the Grand Floridian. I was going to post this later and see if anyone would like to share it, but I thought I would ask you first. There will be 5 of us, leaving 5 spots open PM me if you are interested!

Thanks girls! Now I just have to wait to get them.

I wish I could have made them. I considered it but I am not crafty and I had a fear that I might mess them up. I thought it was better to buy them.

Sherie-- Your invitations are GORGEOUS!! Those colors came together beautifully. You must be so excited to receive the finished product. What have you decided to do for stamps (sorry if I missed this!)

Thanks Cam! I am just waiting for them now, those are the proofs. I am going to mail them from Canada when I am at my parent's house. I don't think they have Disney stamps in Canada and www.zazzle.com is american so I am not sure what I will do for stamps.

Thanks, I really like how they turned out. I was going to choose a paler pink and green but I am glad I didn't.
