US:
I'm Tricia and I am 22 and a Registered Nurse at a local hospital and I work in labor and delivery. I am a college graduate and am still continuing on to my masters at this time. My FI is Chris who is a college graduate as well and is currently in graduate school for masters in public administration at Valdosta State University (TITLE TOWN USA ! ). He is currently working with his dad in their own construction company at this time.
How We became "us"/proposal:
We have been together since 2003 and met on accident!! I had always been really good friends with his best friends and just never met him! He dated one of my good friends for awhile who put his number in my phone since she didn't have one. ... well one night I was trying to reach his friend and had to call his cell to get them.. he wouldn't let me off the phone and .. well now here we are!!!! He proposed on christmas day of 2007 which was a complete surprise! He picked the ring out based on color clarity size and e verything ! I WAS IMPRESSED! He knew it couldn't be very big at all since I wanted to wear it to work which my hands are used QUITE often so I said no bigger than a carat was my stipulation. He ended up getting a tiffany and co ring which is a diamond solitaire princess cut in platnum and is more than perfect. Thats just some info about me so ask whatever you'd like!
When & Where:
Well we do officially have our date of 7-8-9 the fi picked it out and just thought it would be a fun play on numbers...apparently there were a ton of different requests for that day and we ended up getting exactly what we want by getting picked out of the lottery some how!! We are getting married at the wedding pavillion at noon and then we will have the reception at the VIP lounge of the living seas!! I am terribly excited and thats for sure but i'm sure you ladies know exactly what I am going through. Anyone else getting married that day?? Wedding planner is Jennifer O'leary..anyone had her???
Bridal party: I have two bridesmaids and two groomsman and a flower girl and possible a ring bearer but we will see b/c he will be 13 months old at the time and we have to see how good he does walking !!! I already purchased my dress which was purchased exactly one year in advance. .. 7-8-08 easy enough to remember and I absolutely love it... My colors are going to be tiffany blue and white which is b/c my ring is tiffany's and I love the colors... I'll keep posting as I think of more stuff! Thanks all!

I'm not sure if I want my msn or not I'm really burnt out on school .. .I have the BSN and an additional AA in something else as well... There is such a huge liability issue when you are an l&d nurse and 2 of my dr i work w. are trying to convince me they'd pay for me to go for my msn but it's a lot of responsibility and work haha ! my fi wants me to though of course!!

So I wish our planning s ession was like tomorrow.. haha So we are thinking the 22nd of December- not only am I off for a few days in there for work but at the same time all the holiday stuff will be up and we can start using our passes that we got the confirmation number for a few days ago!

Do the passes just start that day and end exactly one year later??

Tricia -- I just caught up on your PJ. I love hearing how fate brought you and Chris together! Your dress is stunning on you! Love the veil, too. Very pretty!
The APs will start the day you activate them (at guest services at any park, IIRC) and will be good for one year.

I am a little bias though since I was my sister's wedding planner and that was the theme I came up with for her!!!! :laughing:

I absolutely love your dress...you'll look stunning the day of your wedding!

Congrats!!!! :yay:

08-06-2008, 04:53 PM
So me and the fi were talking today on how long we want to stay when we go down next year!! We have been so many times and are still loving it all so we were thinking staying from the 6th of july and leaving the 15th! So I definitely want to do the la nouba show and .. well I guess we need to find restaurants in the park that we haven't been to that will be fun.. What are some other suggestions on what to do when we are down and about ? :confused:

bridetobe789
08-08-2008, 06:52 PM

Congrats on setting the date for your PS! Early December is such a fantastic time to be in WDW! My DF and I are getting married Dec 14, 09 because it is our favorite time to be there.

Love your dress, its soooo purdy!!!!

Our weddings are quite close together, I wish I was so optimistic about having it planned in 4 months, I'm from the UK so I can't afford a planning session :sad1: , so I know I wont have mine planned anywhere near that far ahead! I wish I lived in florida or had enough money to go back and forth!

08-18-2008, 09:02 PM
Tricia...
your dress is so pretty!! but im bias b/c my dress is a Maggie Sottero too! Vienna is my dress...the model does no justice online! Her dresses do look better on curvy girls, We have the same shape!
So you so inspired me and the fiance to go ahead and book our planning session! Why not!! We have been talking about when we were going to go but didn't realize we could actually book until I saw that you guys already had.
Don't you just LOVE the Living Seas!!!!! We are having about 75 guests and the spaces seems to be PERFECT for the amount!! What are you going to do for your entertainment? Pianist...OF COURSE! how could you not?! It just looks so elegant in the room!
I AM SO SO SO EXCITED TO FIND ANOTHER COUPLE THAT HAS THE SAME PLANS!! I MAY BE CONSULTING WITH YOU MORE!!! (hope you don't mind :))

Hey girl... finally did my work and caught up on your pj.. maybe we can go over plans and pictures with coffee soon! I'm so glad i'm not stuck up here in GA with no one to share my Disney mania with!!!

Love your dress!
And my ring is Tiffanys too! I thought of going with a Tiffany color but ended up with the total opposite! There is a really pretty dress at Alfred Angelo that matches your colors well.. I am almost positive you have already looked at it though!
Love your plans.. if you need anything.. just let me know!

bridetobe789
08-19-2008, 08:56 PM
**Jennifer** I love it!! I'm thrilled we are running like back to back w. each other! definitely book that session ! I am so anal about time that I have to know things in advance... such as we booked all of our rooms today for our honeymoon and figured out our scheduled (which we just have to check w. a few friends to make sure they don't want in) and then I am booking all of the restaurant reservations and all! (is that crazy? :goodvibes ) Consult all you want I know I need all the help I can get so I'm sure we will be talking quite a bit more :banana: . Living seas is awesome btw .. ! we are not telling our guests where it is and making them get on the bus! Our STD's said "surprise location" ! YaY for curvy girls!(: :woohoo:

Carly---> Hopefully we don't get some bad weather in the next few days!! I hope not ! I work as a nurse at the hospital so I'm stuck here!! my last night will be tuesday since I do six in a row so hopefully wed or thur next week we can go get some coffee and I can drool over your pics :worship: ! lol! Do you work ? A day better than the other??

P.s !

Don't you just love tiffany's rings ? lol! :thumbsup2

Love em!
The pearl earrings and necklace I wore during our wedding were also Tiffanys!
The earrings were my wedding present that I opened as soon as I woke up the morning of our wedding!

And yes..I work. 8-4 M-F. And starting Monday I will be going to night classes and UNF (:mad: ) M,T,W. So my only real free days are Thursday and Friday... ha! I hate school!
I'm off tomorrow though.. our office is closed for this tropical storm that has yet to get here!
Hopefully one day soon we can get this to work... I haven't printed my pics yet though.. I am waiting to get my sisters mem card so i can get all of them.. so that way I can bring them for ya!

I love your dress! And I'm thinking of Tiffany Blue, as well, but I'm having the darndest time finding BM dresses I like in the EXACT color.

Let me know if you've had any luck!

bridetobe789
08-23-2008, 03:50 PM
morilee actually has tiffany blue and although it looks crazy bright online it's much different in person!! Just call a shop that sells that designer and ask them to mail you a color swatch if they aren't in easy access!!

www.morilee.com

tiggerrifficheidi
08-23-2008, 04:31 PM
Oh! I love that color on there! I just have to find a dress that flatters several figures. This is very promising, though, thank you!

I'm leaning toward tiffany blue with just other "garden" colors in the floral. Maybe roses with orangish, cream, peachy tones. Not really sure though.

bridetobe789
08-31-2008, 01:14 PM
So I haven't posted in awhile --- hmm what's new.. we are trying to figure out the colors of the wedding since df didn't care for the color swatch I brought home.. so we are going to go shopping together and let him touch and feel colors haha .. ! Hopefully we can make some progress on that soon! The BM I was going to use just isn't going to happen b/c I just don't like it in person.. but I did find one on david's bridal that I like MUCH better and one of my bm tried it on the day before last and it is gorgeous!!

I also "think" I found my earrings.. no one sells them locally so I have to just go by the pic online .. .they are from disney fairytale weddings and are "giselle" from enchanted...

Thanks for the opinions in advance..!!

So -- question if we registered somewhere how the heck do I get it to post on our website for disney??

I know what you mean about needing to "touch and feel" the fabrics. There seem to be so many discrepancies with pictures!

DisneyBrideToni
08-31-2008, 06:46 PM
I love that dress and the earrings!!! So cute!

David's Bridal has a Tiffany Blue color called Pool and Alfred Angelo also has a similar color. I was going to have a Tiffany blue wedding when I was planning here in New Jersey but now I am having pink to go with the Attic.

When you register, email your planner where you are registered and they will add it to your Disney site.

Can't wait to read more!

Our colors are definitely the cornflower blue from the picture and lilac! We are dead set on both of them now! I figure cornflower blue mainly and a lot of lilac/white in the flowers! :woohoo:

Chris decided yesterday that we should go ahead and go cash in the annual passes and strike them up this week! So since tuesday night is my last night in a row to work we are going to leave wednesday morning and I'll just sleep on the way down--- (who needs a lot of sleep to go to DISNEY :banana: ! ). We have our reservations and even just received a gift for dinner for two at cinderella's castle which we will probably just use when we are down for he planning session in december.

With working all the time and going to school full time it's been hard to focus on anything wedding related... hopefully that will make the time go by faster since now I'm at the 10 month mark!!! :cool1:

09-17-2008, 02:02 PM
We ended up making our reservations yesterday and canceling others..!! So we originally made reservations @ the shades of green for the honeymoon since the price isn't terrible and they are a very nice hotel! We decided yesterday that we wanted to stay at the Grand Floridian instead! :woohoo: We ended up booking the pop on the monday the 6th- and booking the GF 7-16 !! YaY! :banana: The best part I think about the GF is the monorail service but we have never stayed there otherwise.

So when it comes to booking the other stuff such as dinners and character breakfasts and all when is a good time? :confused3

lov2b@disney
09-17-2008, 07:29 PM
Just caught up with your PJ, your dress is gorgeous and fits so well! Love the Tiffany blue and the glow lights in Living Seas will be beautiful!

You will love the monorail at the GF as well as the resort!

i would definately book dinners at 180 days out that way you get exactly what you want!

jessesgirl-080708
09-17-2008, 08:10 PM
yep.. like Sandy said!

But keep in mind that if you wanna book one of the more expensive, or more well known restaraunts that it is a good idea to call right around 180 days.

I called at 180 days in advance to get the Chef's table at V&A's for my parents at 7:15 (the line opens at 7) and someone had already called an beaten me tp it in fifteen minutes!

bridetobe789
09-25-2008, 08:25 PM
That's crazy!! I guess I do need to make those reservations asap when it comes around to that time. I guess I will mention it is our honeymoon at the time as well.. I had asked it on the main board ! ... I don't want to sound like I'm wanting or expecting anything but... whats a bit more :wizard: !

Alright now .. the window pops up to edit.. I edit .. then .. umm how do I save it b/c it won't save!

keenercam
09-26-2008, 09:46 AM
Tricia -- I usually resize to "large" or "medium" and then you can hit the button underneath the picture that says "replace original" or there is an option to make this a new item in your album -- that keeps your original picture at the original size. When you go back to your album and choose the image code it will be the smaller picture. HTH!

Thanks for reading! DF choose the date just simply because the sequence of numbers... now he better not forget the anniversaries either :rotfl: ! Thanks for the compliments as well! I'm soo ready to get my dress in my hands!


Which consultant were you working with at Alfred Angelo?

We had .. Valerie I think..? She was fairly new! She was awesome though! She came in the room and helped me put everything on and was very honest in her opinions... I loved the service..! Definitely better than the store we actually found my dress at who said I didn't need to actually lace up the corset... (basically she didn't know how!) so my bm did it! Umm.. kind of necessary no? :laughing:
I don't know how I missed your PJ so far!? Maybe it's because you started in on my wedding day! Anyways I had Jennifer as my planner and she is amazing! Her assistant Jessie is really great too when Jennifer isn't available. Your dress is so pretty!
What a good day to start on huh?! Thats good to hear about Jennifer.. I'm excited to meet her come december!! Jessie has already been a HUGE asset ! Thanks for the compliments on my dress!! :thumbsup2

So wow a busy last few days!! We had an awesome trip down to orlando this past weekend except for the stormy weather all day friday!! I bought my bridal ears since I was afraid they wouldn't have the headband ones anymore since they have the new ones... So don't like the new ones definitely now seeing them in person... They didn't have the old groom hats though.. weird!! Not that df would wear it either way lol! Sooo about the fact that yesterday I went to go get my dress!! :banana: I tried it on and it was a little big actually which always makes a girl feel thinner! :lovestruc It looks just as amazing as I thought the first time.. it makes me even more excited to wear it in july! I also got a veil and jewelry!! ( I promise I will post pics ASAP! ) Working definitely takes first priority haha .. unfortunately! So my mom makes the comment on the fact my dad really wants to lift my veil at the altar ... now my dad doesn't as for much but I didn't plan on doing this to start with.. The veil I got is a blusher veil and looks pretty all the way back too.. WHAT SHOULD I DO!? Opinions please!! So alteration wise I will have to get a bit trimmed off the front even with four inch heals! Still unsure what shoes I want...

So now.. I'm in hot pursuit of 1) shoes 2) garter 3) hairstyle 4) Definitely having to sit down and do hte planning kit with df in the next month in a half since December 19th planning session is coming up!!

Hopefully I'll have some pics up in the next few days!

So although I don't think I will get over this fear until the actual wedding day when it fits perfect but I am and was terrified that the dress would be like super small haha .. don't think that'll go away! Here are some pics from me getting my dress..I'm amazed my tan lines are still so visible.. I would DIE if I had those my wedding day!! haha

Nothing too much new on the wedding end just waiting for classes to end on Dec. 12th and that will be soo nice to just work and thats it!!

I do now have a confirmation on July 9th @ 0530 to have our MK photo shoot so I am excited about that!! We wanted to day after to have it over and done with and that way we can be up to do breakfast in the morning and just lounge around w. the family or what not before they leave!
I also have ana booked to come back that morning as well!! Didn't know there was an extra fee for it being so early but totally understandable.. still unsure about doing a hair trial so hopefully it'll be good for the wedding so I can know I'll be happy the next morning!! Thats all for now!

So you guys are going for your planning session Dec. 19!!! Our date for our PS is Dec. 29- Jan. 4!! I am so excited and can't wait to hear what you have to say since we are both at the same venus! Random question...are you meeting with your photographer (if you are using outside photography) and/or your Officiant? I thought we might do this while we are there to just elevate nerves on the big day.

I'll make sure I take tons of notes to share!! I am actually going to use Disney photography... something about not having to stress over the photographer having problems with getting somewhere and the fact that the lss is on property I just figured it'd be easier!! I spoke with Rev Tim a few times and am not actually going to meet up with him. We aren't doing anything really detailed or anything except the unity candle so we decided we would just meet him at the rehearsal! Who are you using?
