Well we are back from three weeks of wedding and honeymooning! Everything was wonderful. I don't have any professional photos back yet, just ones family and friends have passed along. (Sorry, they aren't in order)

You looked so beautiful, just perfect!

I love the Gina shoes, the Giiiina shoes! I just can't say how much I loved your wedding (and how sad I still am that I missed it ~ damn school!!!). Let's make sure we co-ordinate our vow-renewals better :) (and any other ceremonies ~ I told Gavin we MUST have Rev. Miller name our children in WDW.... ;)

Anyway, more, more! I cannot contain myself! ;) I'm so glad you're back, I knew your wedding would be just beautiful!!! After everything you've been through, you really deserved it. :flower3: :flower3: :flower3:

What is your aisle runner made of?

Thanks for those photos... it is so strange to see what everyone is doing while we were 'in holding' as I call it.

I am not sure what the aisle runner is made out of, our florist provided it (we did not use Disney). It is made to look like rose petals. I said I wanted the whole aisle covered with petals and he told me this way was better... and it was.

The flower boxes are covered with the same material as well.

Hi!!!!

Revered Miller was so great, that is a wonderful idea!!!!!!

I LOVED the shoes! I went through you know what to get them as they had to go through customs 3x!!! They were worth it though!

If I mention vow renewal to Robert right now he might just lose it LOL, we will have to plan secretly just like with all our other schemes!

I missed you!!!!! My day was not complete without you. I have some goodies to send you this week. :hug:

I didn't see anyone so I think she did a good job! Very cool to see our sign and car... I didn't even notice the sign everything goes so fast.

OMG they were SOOOOOO heavy. During our family portraits I was holding them with one arm and I had to keep changing directions so I could switch arms. Being the bride is hard LOL.

my friend was curious about the car..she said she was quoted a price but when she saw they just drove you around in a circle, she didn't think it was worth it..how long did you have the car and how many people fit in

where are the cruise pictures..I love the Magic!

We had the car for 3 hours but didn't use it the whole time. (I think the standard price quote is for 3 hours) It picked us up at 9am at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and then took us to the Grand Floridian lobby for photos there, then picked us up and took us to the pavilion, then after the ceremony we did the staged exit and finally it took us to the Grand Floridian convention center for the reception.

It only holds 3 people. We were in the back and one of our photographers rode shot gun up front so she could take pictures.

The Magic is amazing!!!! We re booked while on board for the 14 night EB repo to Barcelona ~ so excited. Pictures to follow soon. We didn't board until day 11 of our trip.

LOL ~ I think Gav and Robert might go into meltdown if we mention vow renewals, you are right. Maybe Disneyland Tokyo? ;) I think 5 years and we should definately be doing a renewal. Secretly. Ha ha.

I missed being at your wedding so much :( I of course will need a million photos to make up for it! :)

Thanks. I did change my hair after the trial, I kept pushing the pieces behind my ears and it was driving me crazy so Ana swiped some back so I wouldn't mess with it on the day of the wedding. I loved the way it turned out.

Yep, you are number three. I won't forget! I loved looking at your photos online before you had given the password to anyone! I'll pass mine on to you and it will be our little secret!!!!!

I put Mickey down there because someone was handing me something and I couldn't take it, next thing you know, Robert did it too and everyone wanted our picture LOL.

The dance floor was amazing. It was hand painted and it had our Monogram in the middle to coordinate with our stationary.

Ooh your tables looked great with those huge center pieces! Did you have an outside vendor do all of it?

Thank you!

I used an outside vendor, FLOURISH PRODUCTIONS. They were amazing.

Disney provided the Chivari chairs (easier than bringing them in, but the pillow color was off) and the napkins under the sorbet (they needed to be given to the chef so easier again) and they did a children's table for us but I don't have any pictures of it yet.

Hi,

I didn't print on the envelopes, they were done by hand by Debi at the Blooming Quill. They turned out so beautiful and I think it made the invitations very special.

For some of our other stationary and our cake topper we used renaissance font which I love!

Hi,

I didn't print on the envelopes, they were done by hand by Debi at the Blooming Quill. They turned out so beautiful and I think it made the invitations very special.

For some of our other stationary and our cake topper we used renaissance font which I love!

A great site I use for fonts is dafont.com ~ not sure if you have been there but I love it, I found an amazing pirate font there!!

They were absolutely beautiful! I was going to ask if they were done by hand and thought no way, they were so perfect. I LOVE dafont site.

Great Paris pics.

Thank you! They are from Smashing cards. They also did our rehearsal dinner invites and our menu cards. The price was great and they were wonderful to work with.

Everything looks so nice! I love it to death. Are you going to do a PS and wedding TR or is pics all we get?

Do they have the David Tutera table set up inside Franks? I love that collection so much.

I also love your aisle treatments in the WP. Did Disney do it? I love the aisle runner's texture and the petal wraps instead of just tulle. I'd love to have the crystal dripping from my centerpieces, too, so hopefully all that was Disney.

I have to ask because I've seen a lot of brides do it: How do you arrange for mock ups? I'm a very visual/hands-on person and would love to see the tables before the wedding.

Sorry for all the questioning. Everything just looks so glamourous!!

I will not be doing a planning session trip report but I will be doing a wedding and honeymoon trip report. These photos are just to tide everyone over while I sort through our photos and wait for the professional ones. Ask away if you have questions though.

I do not remember if there are Tutera setups in Franck's... I want to say no, or at least there wasn't when we went for our planning session, but things are always changing. We looked into a Tutera wedding and it was not for us... we got a better value and more creative license to go with another florist. We met with him about 4 times.

Disney did not provide any of our floral. We used Flourish Productions in Winter Park and they were amazing! We had crystals everywhere and it was fantastic!!!

As far as I know Disney does not do mock ups.. I think there are very few people who have gotten them and I believe there is a charge. Our florist provided ours free of charge and that is pretty standard for them. You would have to see if Disney is willing to do it, since I didn't use them I have no idea.

Let me know if you have any other questions. :goodvibes

Thanks!

That pic (and all the others in that post) was from one of our groomsmen! I don't have any professional photos back yet and I am dying lol!!! I don't know how I am supposed to wait a few more weeks. At least my family and friends took some good ones. The day goes by so fast it is nice to look at the photos.

Our rehearsal dinner was in the music room at Raglan Road, Downtown Disney. The food was yummy, it was a great spot.

Hi! Thank you very much.

The linens were a floor length satin linen in pink and then an over lay in taupe with the embroidered design.

My dessert party centerpieces were $27.00 (I am not sure if that included the $5 rental fee or not) Disney does not have Eiffel tower confetti, that was my idea and I had to mail it to them. Totally worth it though because we got engaged at the Eiffel Tower and had our dessert party in France to signify it.

Julia Bailey Photography http://juliabailey.com/ A
Julia and Max were amazing. Excellent communication, they went above and beyond for us. I never had to wait even a day for a response. I was so happy to have them there, they were not just our photographers, they were our friends! I can not wait to see the finished product and I know how incredible our photos will be. They worked so hard covering our rehearsal dinner, wedding, dessert party, and our MK photos. Julia got sick while she was there but trooped on.

Jeffrey Stoner Video http://stonervideo.com/ F
I have changed my rating after viewing my video. I do not think it lives up to the quality I expected especially for the price paid.
6 hours of coverage was turned into a 26 minute video that is just sub par IMO.

Flourish Productions http://www.flourishproductions.com/ A
Our floral was beyond AMAZING!!! There are not even words, it brings tears to my eyes. Brian saw my vision and brought it to life. He was able to take all my little ideas and bring them together to form a complete theme. Every idea I threw at him, he took it and made it even better. Brian and Richard are just super nice and creative people. No detail was left unnoticed. Customer service was phenomenal, I loved that we got to see a complete mock up of our table and centerpiece and we were able to have numerous floral appointments (something we wouldn't have gotten to do if we used Disney)

Beaute Speciale http://beautespeciale.com/ A+
Ana, Lily, and Mirabelle are all fantastic. I used them for rehearsal hair and makeup and wedding day hair and makeup + a trial run. They also did my mothers and bridesmaids hair. They do amazing work and they really listen. They want you to look how you want to look. I changed a few things from my trial and they were great with the changes and my hair and makeup came out perfect. I loved my bridesmaids hair as well and they were all very happy with the results.... and they are never happy lol! They even made an extra stop to our flower girls resort because at the last minute she was not able to come to the room as we were getting ready so early. Email and phone calls were returned promptly which is very important to me.

Impressions/ Shelley http://fairytalewedding.com/ A
Love, Love, Love Shelley and her work. My fan programs, rose petal cones, and napkins were gorgeous and super glam! Shelley was wonderful to work with. She responded to my tons of emails, took photos to make sure I was happy with what she was doing, and called to make sure everything was as I wanted. We hit it off and she is so friendly and funny. She was a pleasure to work with and even though the price was a little more than I wanted to spend it was worth every cent and more.

Carolyn Allen's http://carolynallens.com/ A
Customer service was good. The person who showed up was on time and very friendly. She even helped when one of my bridesmaids dresses had a hemming issue and steamed my baby nieces dress at no charge. You can not beat the convenience of having them come to your room. My dress had to be ironed because it was silk taffeta and could not get wet. I think it was a little wrinkled still but she said the material wrinkles horribly so that could have been why. Over all we were happy with the service.

DJ Scooter http://scooterthedj.com/ A
Love DJ Scooter. He was able to read my guests and play great music. He got everyone dancing and laughing even though it was a morning reception. He is quite charming and funny, great sense of humor. He was great responding to emails.

Disney Floral/ Rose Dizon A
Rose was very nice to work with. She responded to emails very timely and had very creative ideas for our children's table topiary. We only used Disney for our Chivari chairs, napkins for the sorbet, our children's table, and dessert party decor but everything was perfect and as I requested (with the exception of my chair cushions being a little more pink than I wanted them to be). Rose worked with my idea to have Eiffel tower confetti in my gel centerpieces and offered great suggestions to bring everything together.

Reverend Kevin Knox A-
I loved Reverend Kevin. His email responses were almost immediate and he was very helpful when I was having difficulties with our ceremony. He was on time and a very calming presence. The only reason for the "-" is because there were a few parts in the ceremony where he did not use the wording I provided which bugs me. Other than that everything was great!

We stayed in the suite 8 nights. It wasn't available the first night we were there so we stayed in a regular room and moved all of our things the next day. It wasn't ideal (we had so much stuff) but it worked out in the end.

We took photos at the MK but it wasn't the bridal session, just during regular park hours. We hung out and they followed us all over the park! We even had breakfast at the Crystal Palace. It was so much fun. I'm not sure if we were allowed to do it or not but no one stopped us, so we did:woohoo:

The day we left was a whirl wind! We had to pick up Robert's tux and when we got there it needed alterations and it ended up taking 3 hours to complete something that should have taken 30 minutes. I was beyond annoyed and we had tickets to Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party that night so I was worried about getting there too late.

Finally the tux was done and we were able to get on the road. The car was so full we could not even see out of the windows. I was very frustrated so no pics lol.

Of course our room wasn't ready, just my luck as we had so much stuff with us and I really wanted to get it to the room and not leave it in storage. The bell hop thought I was crazy when I started taking stuff out of our luggage (our rings and my jewelry) and my dress. We walked around the resort for an hour with Robert holding the dress (he is taller lol). The dress even sat on the sofa with us... we probably looked nuts but I was not leaving it in storage.

Some photos while we walked around the resort.

Finally our room was ready and we started to organize everything. We had welcome bags to put together but decided to wait since we were switching to the Royal Asante Suite the next day.

We left for MNSSHP and had a great time. When we got there it was a beautiful sunny afternoon but soon it started raining. The plus side is that it was pretty empty and we rode a ton of rides without a wait...we rode Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain 3x in a row without getting off. The bad thing is that it was a little chilly since we were all wet and there were no photo pass people out. It did stop by the time the second parade came around so we grabbed a spot on Main Street and watched the parade and then fireworks. By that time we were exhausted and called it a night. We did not want to wear ourselves out too much on the first day.

We had to check out of our regular room by 11:00a.m. and we were crossing our fingers hoping the Royal Asante Suite would be ready because we had so much stuff with us.... Of course it wasn't. Not only was it not ready, they were cleaning the carpets and they had a maintenance crew in the room fixing something. The would not tell us what was going on or when we would be able to get into the room. Once again I dug threw the bags removing the rings and my jewelry. And of course, I took the dress! We were on our way to the Grand Floridian Spa for facials so I locked the jewelry in the glove box and the dress in the trunk and prayed that everything would be fine when we returned.

The spa was heavenly! I don't know how I managed to relax but I did. Robert said I came out a whole new woman (I was quite cranky before the spa because of the whole room ordeal and repacking etc.)

We went back to the resort to see if the room was ready, it wasn't... of course. I then decided to go to the concierge desk and ask (OK, fine, BEG) if we could at least have the bell hop bring up our stuff. I explained that I knew it was before 3pm and that all I wanted was to know our wedding things were safe and sound in the room. After a few phone calls he said we would be able to go with the bell hop to the room to put our things in, HOORAY!!

When we got to the room the maintenance crew was leaving and the head maid was there to great us. I told her we were placing our things in and leaving because the room wasn't ready and she said it would be done in about 5 minutes so we went to the car and got the dress and when we came back it was done and we were aloud in.

The room was my favorite part of the whole wedding/trip except for us actually becoming man and wife.

If you ever have a chance to stay in this room do so because it is AMAZING!!

We took a few photos and then got ready for the Sunset Safari... Ok, ok, we ran around like crazy people checking it out!!

The Sunset Safari was wonderful and one of the highlights of our trip. Even though it is expensive I would definitely do it again. Robert loves animals and he had such a great time. This was the third special safari we've done. We have also done the Discovery Safari at Animal Kingdom (for concierge guests at staying at any Disney hotel) and the Backstage Safari but this one was by far our favorite.

It is followed by a family style dinner at Jiko which was delicious!! We were too busy eating and laughing with our fellow adventurers to take pics.

Yes, I admit that I posted some photos from the site to show the room better than I could and some of my own. I also have wedding photos that I posted already in the room as well. I am still waiting for my professional photos to come back and they took a ton of photos in the room so I didn't take as many. We still stayed in the room and I don't care what anyone else says. You are the same girls who said I wasn't even getting married and I had a fabulous wedding and now you have nothing else to say so that is the best you can come up with, you were wrong then and you are wrong now.

Hey there!

I haven't had a chance to catch up on your TR yet but I just saw the final few photos of the suite. I am still green. I was green when you mailed me from there, I was green when Ana said she was leaving to go and meet you, and now I am emerald after seeing those beautiful photos! One day I will get Gav to talk to Robert and see if Robert can't twist his arm ;)

Anyway, I love all of your photos of the suite, I was so sad I could not make it. Ana said it was beautiful, she was like "We're in the Royal Ansante Suite!! AAAarrrrggghhhh!!!!" as that's her favourite hotel. I am so, so sad I couldn't come! :(

Oh, and by the way, I stayed in an OKW grand villa and I have very few pictures of the inside to prove it. Don't let anyone bother you, Melissa! I can tell the pictures you took are real!!!! :lovestruc :goodvibes

Your pictures of the safari are beautiful! Howard and I are doing the Discovery one on our honeymoon and I hope we get to see that many zebras and giraffes -- my two favorite animals. Don't they look like God hand-painted them? :lovestruc

We had an ADR for the Brown Derby so we showered and headed out to Hollywood Studios.

Thank you.

Zebra domes are these wonderful little desserts. They are small cake/mousse domes with a chocolate stripe design that looks like zebra stripes. I had always heard about them on the restaurant board but I had never had one. They sell them in the Mara in a pack of 5. Dh and I started out sharing a pack every other day and eventually I told him to get his own lol.

Congratulations on your marriage! I just caught up on your TR-- you were a beautiful bride! Your flowers and table decorations were amazing!

I love the AKL-- it is my favorite deluxe resort and I'm completely jealous of the Royal Asante Suite! Plus, Jiko and Boma are my favorite resturants at WDW. What a wonderful experience to stay in that suite.

This is totally forward of me, being a stranger on the internet and all, but I am curious as to what you do for a living. I noticed all the trips you have taken in your signature and I want to know how you get so much vacation time! I think I might need to change careers to whatever you do! :rotfl:

Congratulations on your marriage! I just caught up on your TR-- you were a beautiful bride! Your flowers and table decorations were amazing!

I love the AKL-- it is my favorite deluxe resort and I'm completely jealous of the Royal Asante Suite! Plus, Jiko and Boma are my favorite resturants at WDW. What a wonderful experience to stay in that suite.

This is totally forward of me, being a stranger on the internet and all, but I am curious as to what you do for a living. I noticed all the trips you have taken in your signature and I want to know how you get so much vacation time! I think I might need to change careers to whatever you do! :rotfl:

Congrats again! I can't wait to see more!

Thank you for the well wishes. I don't think it is too forward of a question. I am a travel agent and I work from home. I am 'required' ;-) to travel for work LOL. Robert also gets 4 weeks of vacation a year and floating holidays (he's an environmental engineer) so we have been very fortunate to take some wonderful vacations together. We also live in Florida so it isn't as expensive for us to go to Disney as we don't have to deal with flights and we are able to take long weekends and stay for 4 days. Robert makes the real money and I make the 'play' the money :rotfl2:

Melissa,

What is Midway Mania? Is that the new Toy Story thing? I can't imagine a 3 hour wait for anything! That's crazy.

Everything looks amazing! We just bought into AKV and can't wait for our first trip there in May. I loved your photos of the sunset safari. The two of you are so cute.

Thanks.

Yes, Midway Mania is the new Toy Story ride. It is a lot of fun but at times you may even have to wait 30 minutes just to get a fast pass... it is complete pandemonium! Get there first thing or get a fast pass for sure.

I am so excited to take a trip when Kidani village opens! AKL is so beautiful! I hope you have a great trip!

I know Julia and Max got photos of us together... but you took most of the photos I have shown, so of course you aren't in them silly.

We went back to the hotel for a nap and to wait for my mom and sisters to arrive at Disney! They were bringing the cookies for the welcome bag as we had to freeze them when we left so that they would still be fresh for the bags...what a chore!

Just wanted to tell you that this is the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen (even in the non-professional pics!). You and everything were just stunning. I apologize in advance if this is rude to ask, but could you give me an estimate of how much this wedding cost you just including wedding day festivities (not travel, honeymoon, other activities, etc.)? I would really appreciate it. It is literally the wedding of my dreams, and I would like to know how much it will cost to make it a reality. Did you have Cinderella's Coach? I can't wait to see the rest of your professional photos!! Thanks, and congratulations! :love:

Thank you for the compliments. In total I think we spent about 80K with the honeymoon etc. The wedding part is estimated at about 55K.

A quick breakdown

Disney Fairy Tale Weddings 20K
Flourish Productions floral 10K
Julia Bailey Photography (package, album, flight, and hotel) 10K
Jeffrey Stoner Video 5K
Misc. Rings, toasting flutes, Waterford unity candle holders, cake knife, and dress 10K

We did not have the coach, only the vintage rolls Royce.

I'm so far behind, but I have to say that everything looked amazing. I love the story of the eiffel tower proposal and how you tied it in at the dessert party. You have some beautiful photos from both your guests and your photographer. Congrats on DVC; DH and I considered buying while we were down for our wedding, but alas decided that we needed to wait a little while before making our purchase. We looked into doing the sunset safari and decided against it while we were staying at GF concierge and now I wish we would have done it; you look like you had a great time. The segway tour is on our agenda for our 1st anniversary trip and I can't wait to take it :cool1:

Looking forward to reading more :goodvibes

Melissa! I know you're not around at the moment but I wanted to post a big hug and thank you for the wedding bits I got today ~ I looooove my Donald Bag and all the beautiful wedding details (which made me even more sad I was stuck here in the UK!) but Gavin has ran off with the rings! He is so cheeky! I am trying to keep the huskies away from Mickey and Minnie, their little eyes lit up when they saw them (and the Lucky Charms!) I love the baubles and the Minnie topper (although Gavin thought it was a toilet roll cover and got more excited, ha ha ha) and the fan ~ I now can scrapbook your wedding (and pretend I was there! ;) )!

I'm glad to see you are getting so many nice people visit your report, especially as some people were so mean to you before. You never deserved any of that :( I look forward to our joint vow renewal ;)

P.S. I am missing you!

hi Alissa! We actually saw each other before the wedding and had our photos taken there. We got some really awesome ones! I wanted something a little more unique and AKL was definitely the place!! The Boardwalk is so beautiful. We are the opposite as we never had time to get over there to take any photos.

Tuesday was a spa day. We had an in room couples massage and then I went and had a manicure and pedicure at the Grand Floridian spa. Anna came for hair and makeup and then we ran out the door for our rehearsal. I don't have any photos as the photographer covered the rehearsal dinner.

Wednesday was the wedding - same thing, still waiting on photos, so I am skipping these days and moving on with my trip report as I won't have my photos back for a few months :sad1:

So Robert and I had this relaxing and wonderfully romantic plan for the morning after our wedding. We were going to sleep in and then order room service and have them set it up on our balcony. Well at about 6AM I was wide awake (I have no idea how after the day we had before!). I was trying to be quiet so I didn't wake Robert but when I looked over, he was wide awake too. We just grinned and said "Do you want to go to Hollywood Studios?" and off we went.

I think the excitement from the day before just carried us over. You get caught up in everything. Either way is fine though, as long as you enjoy each other.

You will love it!! We had such a great time that we have booked two more in the last 5 weeks LOL!! It was great.

I made all of my bridal tees at Bridalpartytees.com and I just googled Game Over t-shirt to find Roberts shirt...I think it came from Zazzle but I can't remember. I bought it right after we became engaged because I thought it was so funny.

In Key West we did the trolley tour. We pre purchased tickets online before going ~ if you book the excursion through Disney you just take the tour and are not able to get on and off at the different stops.

The main pick up is located by the aquarium so we decided to go there first. It was a nice little aquarium, not very big at all but Robert being the nerd that he is thoroughly enjoyed himself!

Golden Mickeys is one of the nightly productions they put on. It is so cute and about giving awards to different Disney movies. It is our favorite one.

I think Disney cruises are so much better. I have only been on one other cruise to Alaska on Princess and I have vowed to only sail Disney from now because we had such a wonderful time on our honeymoon.

That's like I have lived in Michigan my whole life, but only went to our Upper Peninsula like 4 years ago.

I think when you live so close to a place you always think "Well we can go there anytime" so you don't go. We are glad to have been but are trying the Eastern next time to see different places. Our first cruise was a 4 day cruise and we enjoyed this one so much more, you really get a chance to enjoy the ship and the ports.

We mostly took the WB because of timing with the wedding. We thought it would be silly to drive home and then drive back the very next week for the EB. We had an AMAZING time in Cozumel though, we went snorkeling in under water caves and it was so cool!

A 10 yr vow renewal at the WP sounds wonderful!!

The photo was taken at the Grand Floridian, it is right at the entrance when going into the lobby. We were actually heading out to leave for the ceremony and she was like "stop here". It is one of my favorites. I don't know the technique but I can try and ask her what program she uses.

In Grand Cayman we did a stingray and snorkel excursion. I didn't realize when booking this excursion that there were two different excursions with stingrays, one to stingray city where you swim with the stingrays on a sand bar (the one I should have/meant to book) and one where you go out on a catamaran and snorkel and see the stingrays (the one we did book) The water was very rough this day and I thought we would drown trying to snorkel. We had a good time still and it was an awesome experience just too much swimming against the tide for us.

Hi Melissa,

Wow, what an absolutely stunning wedding. Just gorgeous.

I don't want to rake up old bones, and I'm not sure what was going on earlier in your thread, but it seems as if you had some nasty comments about the Royal Asante Suite and other things. Sounds like jealousy to me. I would give my right arm (and any other body parts I could do without lol) to be able to have the wedding and experiences you did, but I'm certainly not bitter that I can't.

I think yours is one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen and I think it is fantastic that you could do it :goodvibes

I am enjoying your cruise pictures a lot! On our last cruise (Holland America) we wanted to do the Stingray Snorkel excursion, but it was canceled due to poor attendance - but DH made up for it by finding a place to rent a scooter and we drove all over Grand Cayman! We had such a wonderful time - incredible memories! Looking forward to your next installment . . .

Hi Melissa,

Wow, what an absolutely stunning wedding. Just gorgeous.

I don't want to rake up old bones, and I'm not sure what was going on earlier in your thread, but it seems as if you had some nasty comments about the Royal Asante Suite and other things. Sounds like jealousy to me. I would give my right arm (and any other body parts I could do without lol) to be able to have the wedding and experiences you did, but I'm certainly not bitter that I can't.

I think yours is one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen and I think it is fantastic that you could do it :goodvibes

Thank you so much! I really loved everything about our wedding!

Loving your TR Melissa!

I am enjoying your cruise pictures a lot! On our last cruise (Holland America) we wanted to do the Stingray Snorkel excursion, but it was canceled due to poor attendance - but DH made up for it by finding a place to rent a scooter and we drove all over Grand Cayman! We had such a wonderful time - incredible memories! Looking forward to your next installment . . .

Thanks. We had our Castaway Cay excursion cancelled because of bad weather too. Just another reason to go back right ;-)

Looks like so much fun! Those mickey waffles with strawberry sauce look yummy!

They are so yummy! Robert made so much fun of me for eating them everyday, I don't think he even had one.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun experiences on the cruise. Never been to any of the islands and probably never will be on a boat since DF gets sea sick. :sick:

Oh and the Mickey waffles made me super hungry now! :lmao:

Does he only get sea sick on small boats? DH gets sick on small boats but never did on the cruise. On such a big ship you don't feel it as much. They also have a patch doctors prescribe to go behind the ear. Maybe try a 3 night and see how it goes, that's how I convinced Robert.

I love your photos and your wedding was beautiful. My daughter was engaged at the Eiffel Tower also and thought your centerpieces were just great. Where can we get them, and you also mentioned Eiffel Tower sprinkles(?). Thank you!!

Thank you. I ordered the confetti from amazon.com and then shipped it to Disney floral and they made the centerpieces. Hope that helps.

Okay, I'm going to sound like some sort of freaky waffle stalker since I have already mentioned them once, but where do you get the waffles on the ship? We are doing our first cruise as part of our honeymoon. We will be on the wonder instead, but I know they are comprable and I have to know where to get those waffles! I have been craving them since I saw the pictures, LOL!

Now back to the important things...

ha ha ha! Don't worry, I still crave them and I can't wait to have them in May. The waffles are on the morning buffet, I think it is Beach Blanket Buffet on the Wonder, Topsiders on the Magic.

Hi Melissa. I am a lurker on your TR. I have followed along since the very beginning. I just wanted to tell you that you had one of the most beautiful weddings I've seen. I loved everything, the flowers, cake... EVERYTHING. You looked amazing and the pictures are fantastic. I love reading along. I hope my wedding turns out as classy and beautiful.

Congratulations.

:lmao:

Just to jump in - I get sea sick too - bad! But on cruise ships I'm o.k. Get a cabin on a lower deck, less rocking. Also, I take a Dramamine (non-drowsy formula) the night before, then another one an hour before boarding. Then I take one the next morning, then the rest of the trip I take 1/2 in the morning and I'm fine. Our last cruise I tried to skip the 1/2 pill one day and I felt it - not good - but if I keep taking that dosage at the same time every day, I guess it just builds up in my system and it works really well!

Now back to our regularly scheduled Trip Report . . .

The invitations were done by Smashing cards.

The addresses, signs, place cards, and table names were done by Debi at the Blooming Quill.

The programs, rose petal cones, and Mickey ear favors for the children were done by Shelley with Impressions.

I made the favor boxes and attached the ribbon and buckles etc.

I added my touches to things by adding loose swarovski crystals by hand, or mailing people things to include. HTH

I don't think you are crazy. It isn't lipstick, it is gloss actually. I don't like having too much makeup on. It's this quad of lip gloss http://www.cargocosmetics.com/product_69.html I brought my own eyeshadow too.

At the dock waiting for our time to take a return ferry. The only complaint we have about this excursion is that Disney makes you wait to take a ferry back with all of the other people that were on different excursions so in the end we were tired and wanted to go back but we had to wait for everyone else on different tours.
