We had our first trip to Disney in September 2005. We'd had a lazy day that morning and then I surprised him: I'd booked La Nouba at 6pm and Rainforest Cafe for 8.30pm. He loved them both and so did I!!! La Nouba was absolutely amazing, so much going on at once - had no idea where to look :laughing: Had a yummy meal at RC and a couple of drinks in the very funky flash glasses - which amused me for hours & they still work now!! :thumbsup2 We then did an hour of shopping and got a taxi back to the resort. We were staying in a deluxe room at the Wilderness Lodge and had a lovely view of the lagoon and the walkway to the boat taxi - reminded me of Dawson's Creek so I loved it!!! Anyway, after we got back I put my slippers on and went to the loo and Den said he was just nipping out and I thought 'Where on earth is he going at midnight???' :confused3 Then after about 10 mins, my mobile rang and it was Den telling me to open the doors and come out on to the balcony (I thought I'd locked him out there or something :laughing: ) He was stood on the boat dock and told me to meet him down there :confused3 Ok I said, whilst trying to find the bug spray!! (How romantic!! lol )

I felt like I was on Fear Factor LMAO I had to walk through the garden areas and along the path in the pitch black listening to all the bug noises and please bare in mind that I hate bugs, spiders, snakes, those little lizard things and they were all there in the bushes ready to just pounce on me! :scared: But I did it and met up with him on the dock, he took me to the end of it and sat me on the bench - I still didn't have a clue what was going on, thought he might have hired a boat as a surprise or something - no idea what was coming next.

Then he walked over with a 'Cinderella' style cushion and got down on one knee (Tissues please! :lovestruc ) On the cushion there was a tiara which he placed on my head, and a Stitch teddy holding a ring (I adore stitch!!!) and he had wrote a poem about 'Princess Joanne' and read it to me and then asked me to marry him, I said yes :love: (More tissues please :cloud9: )

I can't decide what im looking forward to the most *** everything is so wonderful over there! Every part of the wedding and those two weeks is going to be great :cloud9:

You're alot more organised than me, my dress doesnt come in until the start of august :sick: but Im trying to stay as calm as possible about it by stressing about other things :lmao: I've got loads and loads to do!

Paying for it is a total pain isnt it! Wish disney offered free weddings, now theres a magical idea ;) :rotfl:

We were thinking of doing the sand ceremony too, but we might be switching to the hand tying one or the rose ceremony, too many decisions! :confused:

Thankyou sweetheart! :hug: Hows you? and hows married life??

Im excited but really stressed out at the same time *** Ive got loads to do, but i'll get there in the end - once Im on the plane i'll be ok, I hope! :laughing:

I've still got some of your pics saved so I can show Randy a couple of shots that Id love to have - that one of you both upstairs infront of the chandelier at the GF is to die for *faints* I would have copied your FHM shot but I dont want to make DF regret the marriage so soon by waving my tree trunk thighs at him :lmao: :lmao: ;)

Married life is fantabulous... I should have done it years ago! (Oh yeah... I did... urm..... :rotfl: ) I have finally gotten around to ordering our prints today to shove in an album which can go in a drawer never to see the light of day again!! We're currently going through 'itchyfeetitis' We're not happy unless we have a trip somewhere in the pipeline but alas, we've decided to be grown up and responsible, and skip another trip this year in favour of paying the VISA off once and for all :rolleyes: Watch this space though!!

Dinner on the Grand 1, and then a dessert party for just the 2 of you sounds absolutely sensational *swoons* You are going to have THE most amazing time. Are you having any kind of reception over here once you get home?!

Glad you are happy honey!! :goodvibes Shove them in a drawer, are you insane!!! :scared1: If I had your pics, I would be plastering them all over my walls, the car, hanging them around my neck and sticking one on the dog just for good luck! :cutie:

Awww, skipping a trip is no good - but I know what you mean though, we're saving like mad and are so gonna go over budget, but it'll all be worth it - thats what I keep telling myself anyway :laughing: We probably wont get another trip for at least 5 years while we are paying it all off :sick:

Thankyou :hug: It's gonna be fab! I think we are just having starters & a main course on the boat, then scoffing the desserts at the party ;) I've got to make up for being on a crash diet :laughing:

Yeah, we're gonna have a little party. Not sure of all the ins & outs of it yet because Im trying to just concentrate on the wedding now that its so close.

I cant believe you've been married for over 3 months, that has gone sooo fast :scared1:

I've been off ill from work the past couple of days but I've just had some wonderful news that has cheered me up! My dress has come in !!!!

:yay: :banana: :yay: :banana: :yay: :banana: :yay: :banana: :yay: :banana: :yay:

You have no idea how happy I am!! I have been soooo stressed out that it wasnt going to arrive in time, only to find out its arrived a month EARLY!! :worship: This is truly the best omen I could ever have wished for!!
I only chose/bought it in April this year, they said it would be here for mid-august and I have been stressed out ever since because I'd heard rumours that the Maggie Sottero factory was running 3 months behind :scared1: But obviously some pixie dust fell on my dress because its found its way over here :wizard:

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Anyways, I've just realised that I need to start properly updating this thread with all our photos & plans!

Our planner is Amy and she is wonderful :worship: For floral we've got Rosie :woohoo: We have booked Randy & Stan for photo & video :cheer2: We're in the middle of booking Rev.Miller :goodvibes Now I just need to chose someone for my hair & make-up and then contact Carolyn Allens about dress steaming and tux hire.

During our time in Orlando we are doing a bit of resort hopping and are staying at Universal Hard Rock Hotel, Villa @ Wilderness Lodge and Boardwalk Inn :cloud9:

We are literally right in the middle of our crazy planning stage, where basically everything has to be decided & done ASAP :eek:

Hi Queenie :) From your ticker we are getting married roughly around the same time! Hows your planning going?? Unfortunately I didnt make it to any of the shows, have you?? I'm sorry to hear about the stress you are having with your dress :sad2: What has the bridal store said to you?? I'm sure it will all be fine on the day :goodvibes

I know everyone on here loves photos just as much as me, so here are some of our ideas :flower3: I'm still waiting to here back from Rosie about costs and whether we can have the options we'd like, so all this might change :upsidedow

For the cake & champagne reception and our dinner on the yacht we are going for a beach style.

Our cake is going to be similar to this :
http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/BeachCakeIdea1.jpg

Table centerpiece :
http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/TableCenterpiece.jpg

Napkins to be tied like this :
http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/Gerberaonnapkin.jpg

I'll also be buying some place card holders, favours etc.. but I havent chose these yet, more lovely shopping :banana:

We've bought these Lei's that Stitch is going to give to us as a present :love:

My bouquet is going to be a hand tied garden style, similar to the one below, but with yellow & pink roses, stephanotis, lilac freesia and some of those white flowers with the tiger print in the middle of them - not sure what they are called :laughing:

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/BouquetIdea1.jpg

The stems will be wrapped in ivory, with pale green ribbon wrapped around them with pink pearl 'buttons' and the top one will be a hidden mickey :goodvibes
http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/BouquetStemWrap.jpg

I love your stuff, our wedding is themed around Cinderella's coach and I'm having so much fun picking out all the little bits and bobs to compliment the theme.

We had an issue with the dress where they made it with the wrong neckline then claimed it was my fault somehow. They took it away and are supposedly putting the right neckline on it now but I'm just having to keep my fingers crossed!

JoJo1980
07-20-2008, 04:28 PM
For the ceremony we are going for a fairytale garden theme, with pink, yellow & green being the colours :cloud9:

Down the aisle we are having columns with skirting and sitting on top will be vases filled with petals and a candle on top, similar to this

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/PetalVases.jpg

On the altar table I have bought some lanterns, one to go at each end with a candle in them, and the cutest ring bearer pillow will sit in the middle of them with petals sprinkled around :love:

We are also planning on doing a rose ceremony, and will have a red rose each with some babys breath and a ribbon wrapped around

Thankyou :hug: Do you have a planning journal? I'd love to see some of the stuff you've chosen :goodvibes All the fairytale & coach stuff is sooo sweet, I've seen some really gorgeous things on the internet - It was a tough choice between going down that road or the garden & beach.

Picking out the little bits is what I've found the most fun aswell! It really is like being a little girl again, its fab :cloud9:

awww no :sad2: Thats terrible! I hope everything gets sorted out for you honey :hug:

The dessert party is in Japan, so I've been trying to stick with that theme, so have come up with this!

Some glow vases filled with fish confetti to be placed on the actual buffet table, and then the little water fountain will be placed on our table with some confetti sprinkled around :love:

Bit off topic, but these are the earrings I'm thinking of wearing. I dont have pierced ears, so these are clip ons. I'm thinking of going for a bit of sparkle and with pearls as my jewellery style for the day. Still need to pick out all my other bits though - more shopping is needed :banana:

I do have a Planning Journal - it's here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=26386764

Where did you find earrings for non pierced ears? Mine were pierced but one hole has healed and I'm too much of a wuss to have it re-done!

I got some of those flipflops too :lmao: Great minds think alike!! I thought they'd make some really cute photos aswell, some footprint shots with bouquet at the side and us in the background -can't you tell i've been thinking about this wedding waaaay too much :laughing:

Randy is wonderful isnt he!! Everytime I talk to him through email or phone he always cheers me up :wizard:

I got them from my favourtie place, .... ebay :laughing: Just do a search for 'clip earrings' there are loads. I've spotted some really nice sparkly ones classed as 'drag queen' ones :laughing: But they are gorgeous!! I'll probably end up buying loads of pairs because Im seeing a pattern forming where I seem to buy 5 of the same thing as I cant make up my mind :upsidedow I had mine pierced when I was little and had an accident where the back of the earring went inside my ear, having that taken out is something i'll never forget so I'm now a wuss too when it comes to piercing :sick: ;)

I'll have a nosey at your PJ :thumbsup2 :hug:

Thankyou! :hug: I'm so excited! I sometimes get a bit sad thinking that no-one will be with us, but then I remember why we are doing it this way and the magic that being in disney brings. Plus, all the important people are there with us in spirit and I'll be on the phone to my mum probably as I'm walking down the aisle knowing what I'm like :laughing: (Well, thats what DF reckons :lmao: )



Joanne, I just saw your list of vendors... I have Amy too! Isn't she just the best??????????? I love her and Rosie is my new favorite person ever!!!!!!

Everything looks great! I can't wait to see how it all turns out! :thumbsup2

Hiya!! She is wonderful isnt she!! And Rosie is great too - she really knows her stuff :woohoo:

Hiya! Thankyou :hug: They are really cute arent they! I'm still wondering whether I should put M&M on our glasses or Stitch & Angel, we're having Stitch at the cake cutting so I might swap them about ... hmmm .. decisions!

orangetiggs was looking for some ring cushion ideas so I was just showing a few I'd come across, I love my little frog but I must admit I really have a soft spot for the one that would match domo. We're not having domo though, otherwise I would have definately gone for that one.

I've been emailing Stan from STVS to try and tweak our video package. I ordered some dollars so that we can get the deposit off to Rev.Miller. I also brought my first dress fitting forward :woohoo: I soooo cant wait to see my dress again!! :banana: I also heard back from Rosie and it sounds like we can do most of the ideas we had - which is wonderful :worship: I'm just waiting for prices now *GULP!* and to hear back from her on a couple of little bits. I've also heard back from Carolyn Allens and Beaute Speciale - so I'm going to read through everything tonight and email them back aswell :thumbsup2 I'm getting through a bit of my 'to do' list - which is cheering me up :cheer2:

I'm on a mission now! I'm determined to get loads done this weekend - so my PJ will probably be updated every 5 seconds :laughing:

I just couldnt resist it when I saw it!! We've booked to stay in a villa at the wilderness lodge during the wedding so I'm gonna put the toilet roll in the bathroom and the rubber duck in the jaccuzi - it'll make him laugh when he first walks in there ;) :rotfl:

I got them from ebay, you can also get them from online shops like confetti.co.uk - but ebay are a bit cheaper. You can get them in white, pink or black :surfweb: There's loads on ebay at the moment - so have a good nosey ;)

Hi Lynn! Thankyou for your kind words :hug: I'm getting more & more excited!! It's strange, I've been totally stressed out for the past 4 months but for some reason I seem to have let go a little and am getting giddy rather than stressed - not sure how long it will last though :laughing: I love the new photos you have in your signature, the one of you together is one of my faves out of all the ones I've seen you post - you both look so in love and you have a cheeky smile on your face in it, makes me smile!! :goodvibes

Erm ... I've been doing a bit more shopping :laughing:

I bought these to go inside our lanterns

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/PinkButterflyTeaLights-1.jpg

Some of these will hopefully be going on my bouquet, the base of the lanterns and in our floral arrangements. Our colours are yellow, pink & green so these will go perfectly :cloud9:

Well, after lots of stress and a big debate I've finally ordered my jewellery, I'm crossing my fingers that they are as pretty as they look and that they arrive in time for my dress fitting next week as I'd like to put everything together to see if I like it. That way, if I hate it all I've got plenty of time to do some more shopping :lmao:

I love your necklace and bracelet especially! I don't know what to do about earrings, what with one of my holes having healed up :( I know I should just be brave and have it re-done but I'm scared of that pain again (it was agony for me the first time - I had it done with a gun.)

I've seen some beautiful bracelets but I know how much they irritate me when I wear them! LOL

Your shoes are so pretty, I love my trainers but do kinda wish I could walk in heels so I could have had a pretty pair of "proper" wedding shoes rather than Sketchers. I just refuse to damage my feet for that reason alone, and I know I'll be really comfy all day which is more important.

Hiya :hug: I don't understand your fear of not wanting them done again, I am exactly the same - thats why I've cheated and gone for clip ons ;) With them being a hoop type it makes them look like they are pierced :thumbsup2

I always wear a watch & bracelet, but I'm thinking that once I get to Orlando that will probably change and they'll stay in the boxes til I get home :laughing:

I hear ya sista!! Thats why I've got the flipflops - I really love the heels I bought, but I just dont think I'd be able to cope in them, I might just save them for if we get dressed up to go for a special meal or something :confused3

The girl who was helping was sooo sweet, she was really chatty and totally put me at ease, I'd 100% recommend the shop to anyone as all the assistants I've come across in there are wonderful :thumbsup2

She brought out my dress and it looked soooo pretty, even cuter than I remembered! Here are some photos that my papparazzi mum took :laughing: Please look away if you are easily scared by chubby bits :laughing:

Joanne, sweetie, you look absolutely gorgeous in your dress! I can't believe for a second that you think you look anything other than perfect. The dress could not be more splendid on you! Oh, wait until Dennis sees you!! WOOHOO!! Won't he just fall in love all over again? :faint:

I knew I recognised your avatar pic when you posted on my PJ...you are the mad ebay addict!!

Jo, you look absolutely stunning in your dress, it is so beautiful. The beading and shape of the dress is gorgeous honey. You may have chubby bits (don't we all?? No?? ) however there isn't any sign of them in your dress.

Oh and I'm sorry but please let me be the 1st to say....GOOD GRIEF, your chest looks magnificent in that dress!!! (no jealously there at all from the fellow Brit with the pitiful 36B....ohhhh woe is me, I will be over here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> crying )

Ebay addicted?? Me?? Noooo I think you've got the wrong person :lmao: I was laughing last night because I was looking at my bank statement and there were 2 pages of ebay transactions :rotfl:

:hug: Thankyou for your kind words, it does make me feel pretty when I put it on. I havent tried sitting down in it yet, so you'll probably here me screaming in wales :laughing:

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: When I first went dress shopping and tried the dress on I remember the assistant making remarks like that :laughing: My chest says thankyou for the compliment ;) :laughing:

You look VERY elegant Jo! I was wearing my glasses at the time so :p Still can't see any chubby bits!

:laughing: :rotfl: I agree! Jo, your DF will definately be "knocked out" when he sees you! :thumbsup2 :goodvibes

How are you going to have your hair?

Kayleigh x

Dammit, you got me :upsidedow Its definately a change from my usual office work gear or jeans / tracky bottoms :laughing:

If he comes back from disney with two black eyes then you know my dress wasnt fastened proper :rotfl2:

I'm still trying to decide, I've saved lots of photos for inspiration. I'm leaning more towards having some up & some down with soft loose curls - but I've decided to have a trial and then go out afterwards in the heat and see how I cope with it. If i'm too warm, then on the day I'll probably go for an up do of some sort. I'll post some of my inspiration photos this afternoon, still havent posted my floral beo yet, I'm so naughty :guilty:

Hiya honey :hug: How are you?? I need to catch up with your journal :surfweb: My garter arrived by the way and its really pretty, I'll put a photo on here soon. Thankyou for your sweet words :hug: My mum said the same thing, she said make sure randy & stan get some good shots of his face because she wants to see his reaction close up. He's dying to see the dress, its doing his head in not knowing what we're all talking about, bless him!! :love:

What are you planning on wearing in your hair Jo? I have a lovely pic on my PC of a half up/half down with soft curls. I adore it but I'm paranoid that my ears stick out so I'm having mine down!!:laughing:

2 pages of Ebay?! Blimey...! :eek:

:laughing: :rotfl:

Good idea about having the trial etc! I might nab that idea. I know Josh would like it down...he moans I always wear it up....but I struggle with the heat in summer in this country with it down! Plus I have naturally wavy/curly/frizzy hair.....


I'm sure whatever you decide to have will look gorgeous!

All the transactions are shown seperately, but theres loads :laughing: Most things are just cheap funny bits for the honeymoon and our stag / hen night. We've decided to go to citywalk at universal, just the two of us for our stag & hen night :laughing:

Dennis is the same, he loves my hair down & left straight. Its such a pain though, its nearly down to my waist and really drives me loopy in the summer so I just tend to shove it all up in a clip.

Beautiful Dress, and bride to be in it!

I can't wait to see the whole package on your TR!!

Congratulations!

Awww thankyou sweetie :hug: The wedding is only 5 weeks tomorrow now so its coming really fast :wizard:

He's my fave too :lovestruc I got them off ebay, from a seller in hong kong - try doing an international search and if they dont appear, just give me a shout and I'll PM you the sellers name etc.. :thumbsup2

I think our holidays overlap by a couple of days, If I remember right I think Sarah leaves on the 11th to go for the next stage of her trip and we fly in on the 9th but we're staying at universal for the first couple of days.

We've been shopping and got loads of stuff for the honeymoon so I've just been trying all the clothes on and making sure they all fit and what I'm taking. I've wrote a couple of 'to pack' lists so I feel a bit better about that now. Going to spend the rest of the afternoon replying to all the emails I've had from Amy, Rosie, etc... and getting as much done as I can :surfweb: Hopefully I'll have sometime tonight to post my floral BEO and some other updates and pics on here :thumbsup2

I've also totally changed the decor we were going to have on the yacht for our meal. I've found these bits myself, just to try and keep costs down where I can ;) Napkin rings, placecard holders, table confetti and favor buckets - just got to decide what to put in them now :laughing:

I really like the colors you're having on Grand 1! Very happy colors to go with a very happy day!

Thanks! For the cake cutting & yacht we originally were going for a beachy theme, and then I thought I'd twist it a bit with us having Stitch and do a Hawaiian / Laua theme, just with the blue & green flowers :wizard:

I *love* the placecard holders! They're very cute :cutie: It'll all go perfectly together - good choices! Your wedding ring is gorgeous :hug:

:goodvibes

Thanks honey :hug: It felt so strange wearing two rings when I was trying different ones on - I think its going to take some getting used too :laughing: Plus, Den has never worn a ring before so it'll probably take him a looooong while to get used to it pirate:

I'm soooo tired, got loads done yesterday though, but waking up to the news this morning has totally stressed me out - about Fay hitting Florida, I hope everyone who is over there is safe and it doesnt hit too hard. It's got me really worrying about the weather now which was something I didnt want to get stressed about, I have a feeling I'll start having wedding nightmares now like other brides have mentioned :scared1:

Yesterday I sorted through all my clothes and tried things on, so I know what I've got and what I still need to buy. I wrote a massive list of all the things I want to take, and broke it down into what I've got and what to buy. Then I wrote LOADS of other lists for different bits like disney wedding, uk celebrations, honeymoon etc... and did 'to do' and 'to buys' for them aswell :laughing: Took me ages, but I feel so much better because I can see it infront of me rather than trying to deal with it all in my head. I put them all on spreadsheets too so I can edit them easily :thumbsup2

So, tonight when I'm back from work I've got about 10 emails to reply too from Amy, Rosie, Stan, Randy, etc... thats my task for this evening :surfweb:

Rev.Miller received his payment :yay:
Booked Den's tux fitting with Carolyn Allens and my dress pressing :cheer2:
My hair & make-up trial & wedding day services with Beaute Speciale are booked :woohoo:
Emailed my completed planning sheets to Amy, and floral stuff to Rosie - although I'm in a panic slighty as I havent heard back from them all week, so I'm hopeing they are just busy and that I'm not having email problems again :confused3
Sorted all the plans with Randy & Stan for video & photography :dance3:
Done 75% of my shopping for the trip / honeymoon and wedding related bits. :cutie:
Got the food on the yacht sorted with Linda :wizard:
Sorted some ADR's and special treats for Den and bought his wedding gifts :lovestruc
Erm .... what else ... oh, booked car hire & wedding insurance.
Dennis picked up his ring and brought the cases in from the shed :woohoo:
and probably loads of other little bits too :laughing:

So tonight, I'm going to gather all my bits together and see what I still need to get as I'm going shopping again tomorrow with Mum :flower3: and need to update my lists. I feel much better now that I'm ticking lots of things off and seeing the lists shrinking and the tasks are getting easier as they arent as stressful :cool1: I'm sure over the next couple of weeks I'll be pulling my hair out again though :rotfl:

Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting for a couple of days, we've been busy getting lots done :thumbsup2 We wrote our vows yesterday which was lovely :love: Just waiting to hear back from Rev. Miller to see what he thinks of them :wizard:

Today we had our 'Good Luck' family meal :cloud9: It was really nice to spend a few hours together and just relax and enjoy each others company. My parents arent well enough to travel with us, which breaks my heart - but they said the only place they wanted us to get married was Disney and that if we didnt they'd feel like it was because of them and they didnt want that for us. Words cannot describe how I feel about them :grouphug:

So I wanted to do a few special things with them before we leave for Orlando and when we return. So today I made a nice meal and decorated the table etc... so they get to share a special meal with us, just like they would have at a reception. Hope you like the photos! :goodvibes

The cute Mickey & Minnie balloons that we placed in the corner of the room

Den did the bows in the chair sashes!! He was Soooo proud!!! :lmao:

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310014.jpg

These candles were the centerpiece, and they were Rose scented, they smelt lovely!!

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310018.jpg

These were our place cards & holders. I stuck the little butterflies in the corners and the text were just stickers - Thats about as artistic as I get :laughing:

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310016.jpg

We had cute little butterflies on the rims of the glasses, and our sweet little disney charms on the base of the glasses :love:

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310022.jpg

For favors, I put some little love heart tubes in a favor bag with some shredded tissue paper :wizard:

This one makes me laugh so much - Den as Mickey :laughing:

My mum decided to try and be Mickey but Spikey wanted it to be his turn :rolleyes:

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310056.jpg

A cute little gift that Den gave me - Its a tap dancing Stitch!!! It plays a couple of different songs & he tap dances to the tunes - its sooo sweet!
http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh214/DisneyBride2008/2008_08310061.jpg

I am soooo in love with our dog!! He is the cutest thing on the planet :love: He can be cheeky like all dogs, but he more than makes up for it with his good points and cuteness :cutie:

We're going to take them out for a meal this weekend and I've got all the sashes, badges etc... for us all to wear for a giggle :laughing: Then Den is going to Southport airshow with my dad for the day & me and mum are going shopping & for lunch, and then having a pamper session at the night. I've bought a couple of chick flicks for us to watch and thought they would be perfect 'Enchanted' and '27 dresses' Havent seen either of them yet, so I cant wait to watch them :yay:

Hey sweetie :hug: We had a really nice time :goodvibes I've bought my parents a nice frame (I'll post a photo of it once I've filled it) and I'm going to put some of the photos from that day in it, I've also got them some other little goodies to go with it and I'm going to place them all in gift bag and hide it ... then send them a text the day of the wedding and tell them to open it :goodvibes Just so they have something to take their minds off what we're doing and gives them something to smile about. Den saw these really cute teddy dolls that snore and they look like mum & dad, so we've got them those aswell :laughing: They'll have a proper giggle :thumbsup2

Yep, they are looking after Spikey - I couldnt put him in the kennels it would break my heart! :sad2: My mum and dad love him just as much as we do so he'll be fine, they'll spoil him rotten popcorn::

The time is definately zooming by, which is good and bad I guess. Its great because it will soon be the wedding day and we'll be back in disney ... but its sad because soon it will be over ... but I guess I can start planning anniversary trips then :lmao:

I've still got some stuff to do and havent even started the actual packing yet ... but I normally do it the day before as I havent got the space to leave all the cases around the house. Plus, I would put something in the case and Spikey (our dog) would probably take it out :laughing:

I faxed over our complete contract and payment etc... today to Amy and spoke to her on the phone - she's so sweet :cutie: She sounds excited too! We also heard from Rev.Miller and he's made the changes to the ceremony like we wanted :cloud9:

Hi girls :goodvibes Thankyou so much for all the kind words and congratulations :grouphug: - we're having a great time :wizard:

The package we've got with Stan was a bit different to normal as we wanted a mini video doing ASAP for the parents. Which Stan was wonderful about doing, its too big for his sneak peek section on the site as its about 15mins long so he emailed me a link. If anyone wants to see, just PM me and I'll send it you, you have to download the file before you can view it. He's going to put a shorter version on his site soon aswell :woohoo:

We fly home on tuesday :sad2: so the trip report will be here soon :hippie:

I'm hopeing to get our photos from Randy before we leave, so I can post them on here when we get home aswell :wizard:

We've had some pixie dust and some not so good dust, but all in all its been wonderful :cloud9:
