Hello Everyone, I'm very excited to be starting my own PJ, as I've been lurking on the Dis for quite sometime reading everyone else's.

The Story:
My name is Stacey and my fiance's name is Frank.
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn63/DisneyBride925/l_3473f4726348925cc3ba4875d50d1f14.jpg
We met through a mutual best friend, whom we've known for 10 years. We had heard a lot about one another but everytime we were supposed to meet, something came up. We finally met one night at a Superbowl party and then went out the following weekend with a group of friends. I was hesitant, even though Frank was showing interest because he had a bit of a "bad boy" reputation and I was seeing someone else at the time, long distance. After he continued to persue me and we spent hours just talking and laughing we knew quickly that it was meant to be, and I knew that I was in trouble! Our relationship has moved along quickly, he asked me to move in with him about a month after we started seeing eachother, putting his "bad boy" past behind him. We absolutely adore eachother and our parents and friends couldn't be happier for us! We have been talking about marriage from the beginning. He is everything I could have ever wanted, if I could dream up my Prince Charming it would be Frank. I wouldn't change a single thing about him. He is truly perfect!! :lovestruc :lovestruc :lovestruc

The Proposal:
We took a trip to Disney earlier this month with our mutual group of friends. I'm not going to lie, I knew it was coming. We arranged to meet with a DFTW planner and see some locations, however I did not know where or when he was going to propose. On May 5th we did a private Wishes cruise with our group of friends and during the finale of Wishes (my favorite fireworks show, btw) he got down on one knee and proposed right there on the boat. He asked me to make his wish come true by becoming his wife. It was the most perfect night ever! :love:

(shot of him proposing, one of our friends got a picture)

I've always wanted a Disney Wedding and he wants to give me the world, so we're going to do a small wedding in Disney on Feb 16th (just my family, his won't fly) and in September we're doing our at home church wedding and reception.

My Ring:
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn63/DisneyBride925/l_4a0e4adfe724642daa119dd41dd412a4.jpg
Frank designed it himself, the center stone is a heart and the sidestones are diamonds and sapphires, sapphires are my birthstone and favorite stone in the world. The ring is soo me! He did an awesome job!

Thank you! I'm trying to plan everything one thing at a time. I'm having a hard enough time deciding on perfect centerpieces and favors for the engagement party. I just have to keep telling myself to breathe and not let it keep me up at night :rotfl:

You were getting engaged at MK while we were wrapping up our wedding dessert party at Epcot on May 5th! And if you do get the date you want, you'll be marrying on my mom's bday.

Thanks everyone for your kinds words! I had such a great time reading everyone else's PJ, I just hope mine can stack up. I'm glad that everyone likes the pink dress idea. I was starting to wonder if I should just go with the white. I knew from the beginning that I wanted a pink dress but I feel like I should be in white. I'm all over the place.

So I'm getting more involved in the details of my engagement party and I really think I want it to be Pirate and Princess themed. Frank loves pirates and I'm very much into the whole fairytale thing so I think it would be a great idea. I purchased some little pirate figurines to put on our cake yesterday at the dollar store, now I'm planning to have the bakery do a beach theme for the cake and have them stick the pirates on there somewhere. I have also seen kits in some craft stores for castle cakes. I am not very creative when it comes to the kitchen but a friend of the family actually does these cakes as a side job so I think I'm going to ask her. As for favors, I was toying with the idea of making lollipops. I have skull pirate molds, Cinderella's royal coach molds and of course Mickey head molds.

As decorations I purchased the castle mural at Party City. I thought it was adorable and a really cute touch. Now all I have to do is come up with the centerpieces and I'll be set!

Also, does anyone know of a program where I can make my own invites and save the date cards? I want to use our own picture graphics and am not sure how to get started. I need a lot of help with these things.

The party went very well. I have been soooo busy lately. We decided to do an escape instead and moved the wedding up to Feb because nobody wanted to go to Disney, so we're getting married here too at my church but still keeping my dream of the disney wedding

Hello... my dress actually changed. I should probably edit my PJ when I have some time. We're having our escape wedding on Feb 16th at the Yacht Club Gazebo aat 2:30pm. Only my 2 maids of honor will be attending (as far as my side of the bridal party goes) and they will be in red dresses since it's Valentine's weekend. The blue and silver still remain the same for here though

I know I'm late on this but here is a pic from us at our engagement party 7/12/07

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/engagementparty-1.jpg
We had a Pirate and Princess themed party which was great but we also found out that a lot of people weren't going to make the trip down to WDW. My MOH and Frank's Best Man were supposed to make the trip as well but they just can't seem to make it work financially so now it's just the 2 of us, my parents, my brother, and my aunt, uncle and cousins that have DVC and come down every year at that time. We're going to be a very small party of 10 but DF didn't want me to give up my dream of being married in Disney. So we shall have a small ceremony on our anniversary followed by dinner at LeCellier and then have our big church reception here on September 27, 2009 and get married in my church so that his family and my extended family could witness it. I wound up coming down with mono this year and losing my job so we couldn't swing the wedding I wanted down there and it literally is just us getting married in Orlando but I will still wear my pink dress and we will still take pictures via a photopass session at the Grand Floridian

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/pillowcake.jpg

This is the cake we have chosen for our Disney ceremony. We will be having cake in the hotel room immediately after the ceremony and then going to the GF for pictures. We are going to only get 2 layers on the cake since there are so few of us. We are also going to do without the tiara because when we were at WDW in December I saw that Aribas Bros has new glass slippers and they have one in pink, (to match my dress) so I'm going to get that one with the date engraved and that will go on top of the pillows.

This is how I want my hair for that day (Thanks to the disbride who let me use it) http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/63f685fe80e9031586a1a01b8baee39a_m.jpg
I'm having Ana from Beaute Speciale come to do my hair and I will be doing my own makeup since I am a makeup artist and am never happy with the way anyone else does my makeup. I'm sure Ana would do great but since I'm pressed for cash I just decided to do it myself.

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/bouquets.jpg
This is the inspiration for my bouquet although I haven't exactly found anyone that can make it. I want it in silk so that I can use it again for my wedding in September..we'll see how that pans out. I'm going to keep looking on ebay for something because I'm running out of time. I don't want all the bling on the stems though, just a light pink ribbon would work fine to match my dress.

http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/571.jpg This is my dress, I think I posted it already but I had a dressmaker on Ebay make it for me and it's been shipped out. I'm just waiting for it to arrive any day now. Frank will be in a black tux with a silver vest.

I bought some favors the other day and will post them when they come in.
That's about it for now. If anyone has any ideas then send them my way!

Hey there i love the picture of you guys you look so cute. The dress is beautiful. Have you talked to your planner about that cake? That was originally my cake but the chefs would not do it. The offered an option of making it out of styrofoam and cutting a sheet cake for the guests. I even contacted the lady here that makes it and got all the specs from her and passed them on to the chef and they still would not do it.

Christina is a "very good true friend" of mine. I was fortunate to meet up with her on my honeymoon... I love her to death. She really is a sweetheart.

We're getting closer and closer! Yesterday marked the 2 week point until we leave! I'm so very excited. I've been doing a lot to get ready, like gathering things together to ship down and so fourth. I'm getting very excited and a little nervous. I know that the day isn't going to be perfect but I want it as close to it as possible. Here are some updates.

I decided I don't like the way my hair looks with my body type. It was very pretty but I think it makes me look bigger than I am so I decided to go with this http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/hair2.jpg I'm sure Ana will make it look beautiful!

Here is my veil http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Stacey%20and%20Frank/w43pka.jpg I'm very excited about this as I wasn't originally going to have one but I think it completes the look.

I also decided to add some stephanotis to my bouquet to break up the lavender. It looks so pretty!

One of my extremely handy bridesmaids and good friend is a notary so she helped us with our marriage license legal stuff. She notarized everything and Say I Do Weddings called me yesterday, it's official, our marriage license is ready to go and waiting for us with Reverand Tim. I also got all the documents together to notify everyone of my name change. I'm not working, I figured I might as well make good use of my time.

So I'm pretty much all set. I'm not sure if you'll have another update before I leave but I promise to try and update from down there with some pictures as we will have our laptop.

Yes I'm back already and I have a bridezilla rant .. This is my first and the only place I can rant and rave so please excuse me..

My Matron of Honor (and best friend since I was 2) got pregnant in 2007, she decided she was going to have a "family only" ceremony so that they were married before the baby came and then have thier big wedding the following year. So she got married August 2007, and didn't invite me to the ceremony. When I told her that I wished I could be there because I wouldn't be able to imagine not being there for eachother's wedding she told me it was just family and it was something small. I was hurt but let it go. I still spent about $400 on gifts for them, plus another $200 for her baby shower that year. I'm not one to count dimes but she was very priveleged growing up. Her grandfather invented the straw and she is an only child so the word "no" is not in her vocabulary.

Fast forward to last year when she asked me to be her MOH. I was still hurt about not being invited to her wedding because I'm important enough to be her MOH but not be there to witness her get married? I wasn't ok with the family only excuse because after being friends for 22 years I considered her family..but I digress

So after declining to be her MOH, she and my mother talked me into it and I bit my tongue about the vera wang bridesmaid dresses she picked out. I was out of work and had no money but my mom helped me out and we made it work. I gave her another $500 at her wedding.

So now I'm getting married and I invited her to Disney for my ceremony even though mine is also family only. She said she wasn't able to afford coming down (:rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2: ) but she would love to be my MOH at the at home VR. I was ok with that but disappointed. Her son will be my RB also.

At my engagement party I got (what I could only assume was regifted) a card box and a halmark wedding book..no cash like I gave her for her engagement.. again, I'm not one to count $ for $ but it's not like they don't have it or we just met.

I put up our HM registry so people can get us little items because they have been asking what they could do for me. My other maid of honor and on of Frank my best friend's both got us great gifts but I got a letter from MOH saying that she can't afford to get us anything off our registry. I totally understand, times are tough we're in economic crisis..

Today I got a call from my mom, she spoke to MOH mom and they are going to California for Spring Break. Not to mention the $2500 German Sheppard they had to have from Germany that she and her husband got eachother for Christmas.

Ugh!! Guys please.. you can tell me if I'm being too Bridezilla.. I want you to! I'm just stressing money so hard just like everyone else is and I know she has it. My mom says "Well this is the way she has always been, she's an only child" so I'm just supposed to accept this? I would never say anything but it does hurt me. What is a dining plan incriment? $35? Just do that and say "I just want you to know I'm thinking of you"

To top it off our Best Man (that introduced us) also told one of our friends in common that they shouldn't have given us a gift from our registry because it's not our "real wedding" ..HELLO!! WE HAVE A MARRIAGE LICENSE, AN OFFICIANT, DRESSES, TUXES, RINGS..HOW MUCH REAL CAN IT GET?!?!?!?

Oh WoW! I must say I can agree with you being a little upset with your MOH. Anyways... I must say I love the pink dress and I agree your hair will look better down rather than up.

Umm what? He invented the straw! Not to digress but I have never heard of nyone inventing something so ismple that we use everyday, they must be very wealthy. Cool fact though.

Anyways, I think you are 100% right to be upset, it's nto about the $$, it's the thought that counts and for a friendship thats 22 years old, you deserve a little respect. I would try to forget all this b/c your big day is so soon... I know thats hard to do though.

Try to focus on how special it will be for you and your DF, and put all the negative stuff away (you should keep on venting it out here though, we can ALL relate! :rotfl: ) You are going to have a gorgeous wedding, and the VIP's in your life will be there to love and support you both! You will have so fun, you'll completely forget the drama of MOH's. Keep us posted hun!

I just wanted to jump on board and say everything looks fabulous.

I understand that you are upset about your friend, but like Sam said, vent here, but don't let it ruin your day. Some people are very selfish and self-absorbed, but just know at the end of the day, that you are obviously the better person. You seem very nice and considerate and I hope your wedding day is everything you deserve it to be!!!

Oh, by the way, I love your name! There are a few Stacey's on here getting married, and we all spell it the same way, which I haven't met another Stacey who spells it with the e!

Thats so random! I guess someone had to invent it though right! :confused3

:flower3: I hope you are feeling better about everything, just remember it's YOUR day, you are allowed to feel every emotion you want! I really hope it is amazing for you, I have a feeling it will all be fine once your in WDW, Disney just makes people happy :):goodvibes

Hey everyone! I'm back from WDW and we had a very magical wedding! I will post a TR if anyone is interested. We were a very intimate group of 10 and it was really a magical day. The whole trip was filled with lots of pixie dust!

Our planner was also named Stacey. She was GREAT! She answered all of our questions immediately and was so helpful with everything. A+++++++

Rev Tim Herring: Great ceremony, everyone loved him! He did exactly what I asked him to and even called DH's mom since she couldn't make the trip down and let her hear the entire ceremony. A++++

Ana at Beaute Speciale: I can't say enough wonderful things about her! She is the most fantastic person in the world! She made me look and feel like a princess in not time flat! I loved her! A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Photographer: Kathy at Barefoot Photography: Took GORGEOUS PICTURES and for an amazing fee. I definitely recommend her for brides on a budget. She was PHENOMINAL A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Carolyn Allens: Was able to work around our crazy schedule and with short notice on plan changes A+

Colin at Tower Video: He also did a great job, although he doesn't edit the wedding videos. If you just want someone to simply record your special day for a low price then he is the way to go. A

Tasty Too Bakery: OMG, this was the most amazing cake ever!! We didn't want the standard cakes that disney offered with the intimate package and they charged wayyy too much to upgrade to what we wanted so we went with outside vendors for almost everything. They made the most beautiful and delicious cake that any of us have ever seen or tasted! I HIGHLY recommend them! A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I hope I'm not forgetting anyone. I'm kind of all over the place since we just got back from 2 weeks at the world. If I remember anything else I will come back and edit.

For now here are some pics

February 11- Day One

I hardly slept because I was stressing leaving something home. I had shipped almost everything down ahead of time. We were staying DVC so they had scattered availability due to President's Week. This meant we were moving around A LOT! This made for a lot of confusion but luckily everything turned out ok. We watched a movie on the plane to take my mind off of everything, which made the flight go by faster. We checked in at the Animal Kindgdom Lodge, it is our home resort and we have never stayed there. It is a beautiful resort with a view of the savannah and the animals! http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009037.jpg our room (sorry it's only the bed lol. We were in a rush to get to DHS)http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009064.jpg This is basically what we woke up to every morning. It was amazing! I have lots of other pics of the animals but I don't want to bore you so much.

We had lunch and then headed over to Hollywood Studios, where DH had me ride ToT until I refused to go on it again and then we did RnRC (my fave at DHS). We had a 7:00 dinner reservation at 50's Prime Time Cafe but we didn't want to wait that long, so we got on a bus to DTD to do our shopping and eat dinner there. We decided to try out T-Rex. The restaraunt was really cool. Food was good. http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009005.jpg http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009011.jpg http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009008.jpg.

We then did some shopping. DH wanted me to pick out a nice piece of jewelry there as my wedding present but I didn't see anything I really liked all that much. We got our bride and groom ears and the pink glass slipper that we used as our cake topper. At around 7:00 we were shot and decided to come back to the room and relax. We came in and unpacked and I noticed Wishes was starting . It's our favorite show and we got engaged on a wishes cruise last May. We could see it so clearly from our room. I think tinkerbell was trying to give us some pixie dust for the first night of our romantic vacation. We watched together out on the balcony.pixiedust:

Day 2 February 12- Universal Studios

With all the American Idols at the Studios we decided to stay away from Disney and plan a day at Universal. I haven't been there in years and DH had never been so we thought it would be fun to plan a few days over there. We started out our day EARLY!!! The shuttle came and picked us up and took us over to Universal Studios. We had a blast! We took some really fun pictures with Woody Woodpecker, Shaggy and Scooby Doo, Bart Simpson, Curios George and the man in the yellow hat, Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey and Spongebob! We also rode some great attractions. Our favorites were The Curse of the Mummy, The Incredible Hulk coaster, Dueling Dragons and Shrek 4D. It was an exhausting day. Here are some fun pics we took over at US.

We left Universal at 4:15 and went back to AKL to rest for half an hour and then got changed, grabbed a quick bite at the hotel and went to the WL for our Wishes Cruise. It was very romantic. It reminded us both of the night we got engaged, very magical. Then we came back to the room and Frank passed out again. I am sensing a pattern. We went back to Universal the following week to catch all the stuff we missed.

My family was coming down the next day and it had been an early day so we turned in early and got some rest.

Stacey - on the MOH thing - I can completely sympathize. PM me and I'll tell you the story if you want to comiserate. I don't want to hijack! pirate:

But you know - if she was broke - that's one thing. There are so many things she could do. I'm sure if she had put thought and love into it (like a scrapbook that ranged your entire friendship that she put alot of time in) that would be one thing. That regifted thing is just so GRR!! :eek:

But anyways - you were a beautiful bride! I love the dress!!! :lovestruc And it looked like you had a gorgeous day for a ceremony! I can't wait to read more of the TR!! :goodvibes

I would have LOVED a scrapbook. I'm making one for her as her MOH gift. She even came to see me the day before I left and she came by empty handed. It wasn't that I expected something- a card maybe? Anyway..things went great and we did have a beautiful day. I will continue with my TR tomorrow

Day 3- February 13th..

My parents and brother were due to arrive around 3:00 so DH and I had a late breakfast at Boma. It was very good. When they arrived we went to Epcot to watch Illuminations and we had an adr at Teppan Edo. Everyone enjoyed the meal and we had an entertaining chef. Everyone was pretty tired after dinner so we just went back to the resort to get an early start on Valentine's Day. Here are some pics from Epcot.

Day 4- February 14th, Valentine's Day:

DH and I started out our day at the Crystal Palace for breakfast. We had a 9:30 KTTK tour and my family was meeting us at City Hall at 9:15. We had a great time and the food was great as always.
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009082.jpghttp://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009083.jpghttp://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009084.jpghttp://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009086.jpg

The tour was alright. I had done it once before but our tour guide this time around (Megan) talked an aweful lot about herself. But everyone else had fun and learned a lot. That's all that matters. After the tour we went back to shower and freshen up and then went to the Yachstman Steakhouse for dinner. I had them set up conversation hearts at everyone's place setting as sort of a thank you for coming. My Uncle (and godfather) came with my aunt and 3 cousins, they are dvc members and fellow disney dorks like myself so they were just thrilled that I was getting married there. Dinner was great, one of the best meals of the whole trip. After dinner I went back and called all of my vendors to confirm for Monday (because I'm OCD like that) and began to get everything ready. http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009089.jpg Frank and I at our Valentine's Dinner http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009090.jpg My mom and I

Sorry about the pics being so big. I can't seem to figure out how to shrink them.

Sunday, Febraury 15th:

Today the girls did a Bridal Brunch at CRT while the boys headed for breakfast at the Rainforest Cafe in AK. Frank loves the RFC, he used to work there when there was one open by our house. That is how he met our mutual friend and how we met. On the way to the MK I took the ferryboat at the TTC and the captain had me write our names in chalk http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009091.jpg :lovestruc It was very sweet. I sent it to Frank and he thought it was nice too. http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009092.jpg The girls http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f135/staceyxlynnx/Disney%20Wedding%20Pics/DisneyFebruary2009093.jpg My mom and I. After breakfast we met the boys at AK and did a few of the attractions there. DH and I left at around 2:00 to get ready for the rehearsal dinner and check in at the Caribbean Beach. My husband is pirate obsessed and wanted to spend our wedding night in the pirate room at CBR. Isn't it so romantic? :rotfl: :rotfl:

Here are some pics of the pirate room for those who are interested in seeing it

Monday Feb 16th- Our wedding Day

I woke up before Frank and headed to my parents room at OKW to get ready. I showered, did my makeup and waited for Ana. She showed up and got me all done up in no time at all. She really was the best. She told me all about how she worked on the American Idols earlier that week and even sent me some pics. She was fantastic!

Shortly after Ana got there the photographers got there and then came the videographer. Everything was timed perfectly. DB went over to DF to get dressed with him so he wasn't alone. After I was dressed we all headed over to the ceremony! :bride: :yay:

Here are some pics I took. I'm still waiting on some of the photographers pictures

We had the cake in the room because LeCellier wanted too much to cut the cake so after the ceremony we had the toast and cake in our room and then went to the BC for more pics, changed and headed over to LeCellier for dinner

The cake was amazing. Sorry that is the best pic I have for now until I get them from the photographer. The bakery did an awesome job. It looked, smelled and tasted like heaven!

I posted a lot of others already and I don't want to be too redundant..

After dinner the family went to DHS for EMH but DH and I were shot so we came back to our pirate room and were fast asleep. My family was leaving in the morning so we had breakfast early at Kona.
