Hi Everyone. I started a PJ and now it has disapeered! Anyway..I guess I'll start over. Here is where we are so far. We got engaged on 9-13-08 and are getting married in Disney on 8-8-09!

Hey everyone. Welcome to my PJ!! Chris and I got engaged on Saturday (9-13-08) but have dreamt about a Disney wedding for years! Our first obstacle is getting our parents to love the idea as much as we do. We live in Massachusetts so our parents are concerned that "no one will come" because it is too far away andtoo expensive to have a wedding out-of-state.

I'm pretty bummed, because I really want this to work out!

We have already held the Wedding Pavilion for 8-8-09 at 2:30
We have holds at the Boardwalk and Yacht club for the reception, but we are on the waitlist for the Grand Floridian, which I really reeally reallllllly want! I am crossing my fingers. There is a tentative convention who is holding all the space at GF.

We have been in constant contact with Bill B. from sales at Disney FT weddings. He has been GREAT!

Videographer booked! We are..as I type..watching the sample HD DVD from STVS video, who will be our videographer on our wedding day.

recieved confirmations from our videographer (STVS), our photographer (Randy Chapman), and our officiant (Tim Herring).

I booked my makeup/hair/nail services today. Beaute Speciale will be doing everything for my bridesmaids and I on the day of my wedding. Anyone had services through them for their DFTW?

After trying on about 17 dresses, I went back to one shop tried on one of my favorites again and put a deposit down! I'm really happy with my decision. Wish I could post the pics..but DF is on here more than me!

We also booked our Magic Kingdom Portrait Session today for 8-9-09 @ 5AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You live in Mass and your parents are worried that the wedding will be too expensive? They'll actually save money! At least that's what I found. I'm a Massachusettsian lost in Northern Maine. :)

You've made so much progress already. I'll keep my fingers crossed that that convention gets out of the GF so you get it! :goodvibes Great job on everything and I look forward to reading more!

Update 12/1/08

A lot has happened over the past month!

1. We sent in all our save-the-date addresses so Disney can send them out!
2. We picked our three hotels for our room black (GF, Caribbean Beach, All Star Movies)
3. We recieved our Letter of Agreement and Save-the-Date drafts. We signed off on them and sent them in with a big fat check!
4. I also returned my first veil, because I found a BETTER ONE....my cousin's. It matches my dress and has an attached tiara just like the one I was looking at! It was fate! I got a better veil AND tiara for free! Now I have something "borrowed" which I never thought i'd get!!!

Update:

Yesterday we booked our flights for our wedding. We are leaving on August 5th on Jet Blue at 9:30 in the morning. We come back on Jet Blue on August 16th at 530 in the evening! With our credit card points and a recent credit from Jet Blue the tickets ended up being $50/each!!

Today I recieved a call from our Event Manager, Celeste. She sounded super excited...maybe even more than me! SHe immediately sent me her contact info after our conversation and helped answer some piliminary questions I had!

We also sent our LOA back signed with our deposit, and have been told it was recieved. OUr Save-The-Dates are going out in a couple days, and we were told we would recieve our annual pass vouchers in about 3 weeks, just in time for our planning session trip in February!


The madness begins!!!

With the wedding 7 months away and our PS 3 weeks away I'm started to feel stressed!! We have booked our honeymoon suit at the Poly and our wedding nights at the GF with our complimentary room night the day after our wedding! We've started tux and bridesmaid dress shopping. I've decided on a pink and green wedding...:goodvibes

We've also chosen the music for the ceremony:
Guest Entrance: Canon in D by Organist
Mother's Entrance: Ode to Joy
Groom/Groomsmen: Can you feel the love tonight
Bride: A Whole New World by Fred Mollin
Unity Candle: Reflections
Recessional and Guest Exit: Disney Medley by Organist

Sooo today my maids and I went shopping and we found the dresses! After deciding between two colors one color for maid of honor and same for the others, all different colors, all different dresses. We finally concluded all the bridesmaids will wear the same dress in the same color (clover) which is a shade of green. The dress is soooo pretty, it is very flow-y and flatters all my girls!!!!!!!!!! Here are some pics. Only one of my girls could find the dress in her size and color, the others are weraing the same dress, but just not in clover.

We also picked out our wedding rings, our salesman is trying to work us a deal, so we'll see if we can end up ordering them soon. I also bought a necklace and pair of earrings for the wedding. A friend of ours gave us a certificate for $100 off so I got them for $200 instead of $300!! I was psyched! Here is a picture of our unity candle, I'll post a picture of the jewelry soon! 17 days until our planning session!!

Day one was a "do whatever day"..so after we checked in at the hotel we went to Chris and I's favorite ice cream spot..Beaches N Cream at the Beach Club for lunch. From there we headed back to the hotel to swim and unpack and then got ready for dinner at O'hana (where we plan to book our rehearsal dinner). After O'hana we headed to extra magic hours at Magic Kingdom and finally called it a night around 11PM. Here are some pictures of DAY ONE:

2/9/09 Day two of our trip was spent at the parks. My DF's brother came up from West Palm Beach to accompany us for the day. My Mom stayed at the hotel and got a sunburn..lol..and my sister, DF, Df's brother, and I went to Animal Kingdom and Epcot. We then went to dinner at Chef Mickey's (our fav) where our "Just Engaged" pins were noticed by our waitress. She had the chef make us a special treat for a engagement! IT WAS SO nice...I loved it! After dinner my sister, DF, mom, and I went to Extra Magic Hours at Hollywood Studios. We were bummed to see we missed the American Idol opening by a few days (it opens Saturday). We headed back to the hotel a little early to get a good night's sleep for our busy planning day on Tuesday.

Day Three started at 730AM with breakfast at the Pop Century Cafe. We ate and then caught a bus to Magic Kingdom. We got to see a glimpse of the park opening while boarding the resort boat to the Grand Floridian. We had to run on the beach..but we made it to Franck's at 9AM to meet Celeste. She welcomed us with open arms and was so friendly and comfortable. We got right down to business, right after Andrea got us some much needed water. We ran through the "whole production" from rehearsal to dessert party. After this Rose came in to discuss floral, where we picked everything! I was nervous about choosing flowers, but she made it so easy!!!!! My flower colors are medium pink roses with greenery and silver accents. I will give more details when I get my Budget Event Order (BEO) from Rose and Celeste. After the meeting with the girls, Chris and I rented a Sea Raycer for a half hour and then headed to the Convention Center Kitchen to taste some yummy food!! I LOVED EVERYTHING! We tried pigs in a blanket, cheese quesadilla, clam chowder, macaroni salad, NY strip steak, and chicken with applewood smoked bacon and onions. Here are some pictures for the day as well as some wedding details:
