Michelle & Jeff's Wishes Wedding PJ 12/8/12 - WP/GF WH/Morocco DP

Hey Gals!!! I have been sneaking around these boards for a little while and thought that I should probably get going on my PJ!!! I have to warn you, I will probably be a little slow on here since I am going to school and on a full time externship for ultrasound but I will do my best to keep it updated.

THE STORY OF US
To make a long story shorter, Jeff and I met about 8 years ago, while we were both dating others. But I couldnt help having a HUGE crush on him. After both of our other relationships didnt work out and some time passed, Jeff and I met again... and this time sparks! We started dating 5 years ago and have not looked back. Jeff currently is a sales manager for Comcast and like I said before Im going to school and graduating in 4 months. Last December, Jeff and I bought a home together...I know we kinda did that backwards, but thats the way it worked out.

Here is a picture of our new house!!!!

THE ENGAGEMENT
Since this is a long story, I am copying it from our wedding website lol.
On Friday August 19, 2011, Jeff proposed to Michelle at Disney's Port Orleans by the river with a horse drawn carriage, a glass slipper on a pillow of white carnations, a tiara, and the most beautiful ring ever!

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/DisneyPIC.jpg

Michelle arrived at Port Orleans after spending the day at three different Disney parks with her dad. <----- (Okay let me warn you on here, I am totally DISNEY CRAZY and so is my dad, so since I have off on Fridays and so does my dad we go to Disney about once a month together and thats how they snuck the engagement on me) He told her that he needed to stop at Port Orleans to "check out a deal" they were offering to Disney Passholders. After the quick drive over to Port Orleans, Michelle and her dad went inside to check it out. They walked through the lobby and Michelle's dad suggested they take a look at what was through the back of the lobby. As Michelle walked out the double back doors right at the river, she was cautiously attempting not to trip over the luggage that the guy in front of her was dropping all over the place. When she started down the steps her dad gave a big hug, she looked up to see a beautiful white carriage, a light brown horse with a braided white mane, and Jeff standing there. Michelle said "What are you doing here? WHAT IS GOING ON?" Michelle also saw over to the side her mom working a video camera and a digital camera. <------- (yes I have the engagement on video if I could figure out how to upload it to here) Jeff intentionally did not plan what he was going to say to Michelle because he wanted it to be spontaneous and from his heart. Jeff dropped to one knee and asked Michelle to become his wife. He told her that he wants to make her happy for the rest of her life and gave her 1 dozen red roses, a tiara, and a glass slipper on a pillow of white carnations. Of course she said YES!!! They rode off on a path that led along the waterside with shade trees covering it. They talked about their life and how excited they were to move forward. (That is after Michelle came down from all the shock!) From there Jeff told her that he was going to take her to a small, casual dinner and that they would head back home afterwards. As they approached the valet at their next destination, Jeff was forced to collect Michelle's bags (yes more than one that she had brought with her for a six or so hour trip with her dad to Disney for the day). As they made it through the entrance of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, the employees greeted them with "Welcome Home" and led them into a massive lobby with artifacts and decor from Africa. Jeff thought he looked ridiculous carrying 2 1/2 bags to a small dinner, he announced "Welcome to your home for the next day honey!" Jeff took Michelle up to their room on the 4th floor which overlooked the Serengeti Plains with Zebras, Giraffes, and Gazelles dotting the landscape. When Jeff opened the door Michelle found hundreds of red rose pedals in the shape of a heart around a Mickey Mouse design and 1 dozen red roses. Jeff had made dinner reservations at Jiko at Animal Kingdom Lodge, so they changed clothes (since Michelle had been at Disney all day), and headed to dinner. At the table, Jeff had 1 dozen more red roses for Michelle. They had a wonderful dinner, and decided after dinner they would head over to Magic Kingdom for the fireworks and some rides. The next morning, they relaxed at the pool of the hotel, and went to the park Animal Kingdom in the afternoon. They headed home that evening as newly engaged. It was the most magical weekend!!:love:

THE RING
I absolutely LOVE my ring. Its a Scott Kay Tiara Setting.

Today we booked our rooms for our wedding/honeymoon! We had every intention of booking one of Grand Floridian's delux rooms in the main building with theme park view...BUT they we came back down to reality...about $900 a night for those rooms...BLAH!

Since we are staying for a total of 6 night (3 nights at GF & 3 nights at AKL) and 7 days, we decided to just book a standard room in an outer building with a theme park view. I hope we can watch the fireworks from out balcony one night and watch the castle change colors....how magical!!!

Then for Animal Kingdom Lodge, we just booked a standard room with Arusha Savannah views, same that we stayed in for our engagement. I loved waking up early to see the animals!!

We also booked the deluxe dining plan for all of our days at Disney. We plan on eating at a lot of the nicer restaurants so thats why we went with the deluxe plan. The first night we are there we plan to go to Narcousee's, the second night is our wedding, the third night we plan on going to Cinderella's Royal Table, the fourth night Jiko (at animal kingdom lodge), and the rest Im not sure of yet.

Well thats the update for today!!:yay:

I can't wait to read alone with all your plans, and the Jikos restaurant is one of our favs too! So yummy... Im a veggie u see! :)

Anyway, Happy planning from the UK!

Happy Holidays too!

Tric...I'm hoping my dress comes in early too :) I think after my dress arrives and is being altered I will have a big weight lifted off my shoulders. Things just still feel crazy... I'll be happy when everything is in it's place! I think without everyone here I'd be going nuts!!!! Lol

I LOVE your dress! Then again, I may be partial since we pretty much have the same dress. Mine was from Alfred Angelo and there is only a slight difference on the top. I tried this one on but they needed too much time to make it. Beautiful!!

Another awesome engagement story!! Port Orleans is our favorite resort but it helps that I'm originally from Louisiana and I feel at home there!! Another 6 weeks and we'll be booked hopefully for an April 2013 wedding at WP, reception at GF ballroom and dessert party at Epcot UK. I'm looking forward to following along and planning with other brides just like you. Good luck and keep us updated!! :goodvibes

Following along. I just wrote you a huge post but it got deleted .... blah. Anyway...how amazing and sweet your story is. Very thoughtful. Your ring is gorgeous! Ours look very similar ;) Your man did good and he is so sweet.

I think you will love Beaute Specilae if you go with them. I had Laine do a hair and makeup trial this past weekend and she is incredible. Perfect. I don't know about GF but I know Laine is awesome.

I have also heard wonderful things about Randy. If I didn't already have a photographer (who is great by the way) I would totally book Randy.

All looks good, cute shoes, great plans. Can't wait to hear more.

Sorry your post got deleted! Thanks for the sweet comments :)
I did book Beaute Speciale...Just sent in my deposit the other day. I requested Laine, Ana, and/or Jackie. They said they would send two stylists. I decided against doing a trial...only becuase I didnt wanna pay the extra $75 and stay at a local hotel. We live 2 hours away from Disney. But I have pictures of what I want done and its not that difficult (I used to be an aveda stylist lol) Im going to head over and check out your pj!

We also have been working on looking for an officiant... When we came over to view the sites about 5 months ago, we met Rev Tim Herring, and we really liked him. I know there are some mixed reviews about him, but were going with our gut and our nice convo we had with him before. Hopefully he works out good.

We also have just as of today set up our planning session date!!!!! Im soooooo exicted for this. Its May 11th 2012! yay!!! We are doing a menu tasting as well since we have heard mixed reviews on some of the entrees and since we cant decide both on the hor d'orves.

Also on a side note...I finished my ultrasound externship today and I graduate March 31st... yay now to find a job to help pay for this wedding!!! LOL:lmao:

Yay things are coming together!!!

Yay! Congrats on finishing the ultrasound externship; thats big news! :thumbsup2 Go YOU!

We have Rev. Tim too. He's not much on emails and he doesn't talk a whole lot in them...but I have heard good things about him and you met him and felt good about his so that works for me. I am sure he will be great for you and for us. :hug:

You are going to LOVE the menu tasting...and the planning session. It's a lot of information and it's packed into a short time but it actually seems so real and exciting when you're there. Enjoy!

Also... the Cardiologist office that I did my externship at, has hired me part time. 2 days a week... it's better than nothing!!! I got my first paycheck in over 3 years!!! I didnt know what to do with myself LOL... anyways they are in the process of hiring another doctor and Im thinking when they do, he will add more ultrasounds and they will need another full time ultrasound tech...Im soooooo praying!!!:worship:

Also, I ordered my dress a little while ago and I called them to get a more accurate time frame as to when it will be done and they said mid-July!!!! SOooooo excited!!!:cool1:

We have scheduled our planning session and menu tasting for Friday May 11... Im very excited about this, but I just realized I have 3 days to get the paperwork back to them... AHHHHH! Gotta figure out what we want for meals.


We also sent out our Save the dates (STD's)... We designed them ourselves and got them printed on magnets from Vista Print. We put them inside a silver envelope and I stuffed the envelope with like 100 Mickey head cut outs in purple, pink, and lavender. I hope they surprised some people when they opened them.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/SaveTheDate.jpg

We also sent out our Save the dates (STD's)... We designed them ourselves and got them printed on magnets from Vista Print. We put them inside a silver envelope and I stuffed the envelope with like 100 Mickey head cut outs in purple, pink, and lavender. I hope they surprised some people when they opened them.

I think that is all I have right now. I will make sure to take a ton of pics at out planning session and post them for you.

Congrats on graduating & getting a job (even if PT)!!!! That's so exciting!!!! :D

And, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Save the Dates! They came out so well! :)

How big was the magnet you guys made? Was it really pricey? And, where did you get the confetti?! That was such a cute idea! :cutie:

THANKS!!!!!

The magnet was the large one on Vista Print... I think they are 4X6. For 30 magnets it was $53.00 with shipping. (The shipping was like $15) We have ordered things before from Vista Print and like their quality.

The confetti I ordered from Etsy.com... I just searched Mickey confetti, and found this person that would make them in any color. The confetti was about $10 with shipping.

Congrats on your BIG day & also for graduating! :banana: Great plans so far :thumbsup2 I remember my 1st two pay checks when I got out of Nursing school, I went to DISNEY to celebrate :rotfl:

Thanks sweetie!

You are a Nurse? Thats awesome!! I just graduated with a degree as an Ultrasound (Sonography) Tech.... I love it, but then again I love anything medical related...The human body is amazing!

Okay we finally decided on our invites. Unfortunatly because we only need 25... invites are getting extremly expensive. Were up to about $680 total for 25:rolleyes1 - AHHH... We decided to go with Impressions to make them. I really wanted that extra little touch of Disney on our invites and wanted them custom made. Here are the ones we are going to use (its a pic from their website)...

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/155356_10150099391605199_82233880198_7821090_41436 26_n.jpg

The only change is that we will need a Reception card, a Dessert Party Card, and a Reply card for everything, along with the invite. Around all of those cards we will have the silver stars but the invite will be the only one with the carriage and the stars... (gotta love those Disney licensing fees :confused3 )

Also a side note... we are going to DISNEY TOMORROW!! For the flower and garden festival at Epcot. YAY so excited!!! Anyone going to be there tomorrow?

Hello again! Congrats on passing, great news!! :woohoo:

Those invitations are so cute. We struggled to decide between Impressions and Dogwood Blossoms Stationary. In the end we chose Dogwood b/c we thought we could get cheaper things...but now after having our invites designed I am not so sure they will be cheaper... it's such a bummer that no one else can use Disney imagery. Darn copyright laws lol...Denise at Dogwood is great though, and our invites are beautiful. She might be a good fit for you if you want to save money...she can add "pixy dust" but it would look slightly different than Disney's of course. Either way, whatever you choose will be beautiful. Impressions has amazing stuff.

hey girls!!!! I dont have a very big update, but I did finally decide on a short dress. Im not going to change into it for our reception or dessert party, but I wanted a white some-what weddingy dress for when we go to dinner at a couple of our nicer choices like CRT. I figured I could wear my wedding day shoes with it (seen in the pic) and I could always wear my ears with the veil with it. I liked that this one has pick-ups since my actually wedding dress does too. I actually found it at David's Bridal (I didnt want to spend a ton on it, its $159) What do you think?

(sorry it was a size too small so thats why Im holding it in the back)

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/715.jpg

Also it was Jeff's birthday this past week... lol my old man... but he has been wanting to do that driving thing at Disney, so my parents got him the lamborghini driving thing, so yay we are heading over to Disney on Sunday for him to drive vrooom vrooom and then we are going to DTD for lunch and shopping!! I post pics of that after.

And our planning session is FAST approaching... CANT WAIT TILL MAY 11!!!!

I've been following along, but I just realized I haven't actually posted yet!

Everything looks great so far. And its a good thing I just ate dinner when I read your dining plans because otherwise I would have gotten really grumpy. :rotfl:

If I had that many awesome restaurants lined up I would need to be rolled from one reservation to the next... But I would love every minute of it!

I love the idea of having a mini wedding dress for dinners. I love getting dressed up and it will feel like a piece of your wedding.

I keep forgetting that Be Our Guest is going to be open soon. That place looks amazing!

We actually just made some plans, we are going to stay the night after our planning session (not at a Disney Resort but somewhere off Lake Buena Vista - like 5 miles away from Disney) and that night we are going to 1900 Park Fare for the dinner with Cinderella and the step sisters... Ive been wanting to do that, then we are going to walk to the beach at Grand Floridian and watch the fireworks. Then we decided the next day to hit a park yay!!! And head home that night.

Thank you... I know looking at the pics of your menu tasting and planning session really helped me :)

I think our menu tasting is going to be around 11:30... at least thats what Meri had told me originally. Kind of early for a big meal at the menu tasting, but I will be waking up at like 5:00 AM tomorrow so I might be ready to eat then lol

If our menu tasting is later then yeah I dont think I will be hungry... oh well we will see!!

We left Sarasota about 8:00 AM and headed to Orlando. We arrived about a half hour early, and decided we would park and go into the bath place inside GF Lobby so I could get some bath balls. After we pulled through the GF gate and were headed towards the Convention Center parking lot… the most amazing thing happened – I SAW RICHARD!!!!! I was looking very forward to meeting him…he is like a celebrity in my opinion. He was just arriving at work that day and was crossing in front of my car from the parking lot going towards GF. I told Jeff to stop! I rolled down the window and yelled “RICHARD!!!!!” He came walking back towards my car window, and I said “You don’t know me yet, but we are getting married here on December 8 2012 and I was looking so forward to meeting you!” He said thank you and was very sweet. He also wrote down when our wedding was to make sure he was working that day, and later in the day we saw him again and he had went into work and made sure he put in to work that day for our wedding – HOW SWEET!!!

We had to meet Meri over at the Convention Center lobby at 10:30 AM because we were doing our tasting first (which was fine because I woke up at 3:30 AM that morning too excited to go back to sleep…so I was hungry by then). We waited in the lobby for about 10 mins and realized our names were on the board for our tating… I knew by reading others PS TR that they usually do put our names on but it was a surprise for Jeff and he thought it was so neat.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/013-1.jpg

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/015-2.jpg
We took some pics with the board and out came Meri to meet us. Let me just say now… WE LOVE OUR PLANNER MERI! She walked us back to the GF kitchen and we walked in and were amazed at how neat it was to be sitting in the middle of the kitchen at this wood carved dinning table.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/184.jpg

We also saw our names on the scrolling marquee sign which was cool. I must admit I was looking forwards to those things…but I didn’t want to get disappointed if they were not there.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/183.jpg

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/197.jpg

We sat down and our chef, Joseph, that will be working our wedding came over to introduce himself. I had asked for a lot of items on the menu from other Disney restaurants and he explained that they do their best to make them as close as possible and that he hopes his is actually better. We really liked our chef. We also met our head waiter. He was amazing too, brought us drinks whenever they were half empty and cleared our plates. First we talked about the free menu cards that they provide us and the free napkins and the folds you can choose from. We actually ended up picking an upgraded napkin later at the planning session with a rhinestone napkin ring. Then our hor d'oeuvres came out. We picked the Beef Skewers with Teriyaki sauce – YUM, the crab cakes because Jeff is from Maryland – he said they were very good (I like crabs but not crab cakes), and the chicken and cheese quesadillas – which I was afraid of them being bland and boring…so not the case they were very flavorful. Meri explained that our hor d'oeuvres will be on a table and we will do that part on White Hall’s outside Terrace and that they will be kept warm since we picked all hot items. She also said that we can have the quesadillas cut in Mickey heads!!!!!! That was exciting.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/186.jpg

Then our appetizer of the Penne a la vodka came out…so yummmm - I wanted to lick the bowl.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/190.jpg

Then our ice slipper raspberry and champagne sorbet came out…. Oh my gosh so freaking cool – if we have any wiggle room in the budget we WILL be doing those. Or if I can sneak them in the budget without Jeff knowing since they are over $20 a person. Now Jeff and I do not drink… and the sorbet has champagne in it. Jeff got a headache from it so if we do them… they will just be raspberry no champagne.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/193.jpg

Then our entrée choices came out. We did the parmesan crusted chicken with the mushroom sauce – now I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about this but WOW, the oak grilled filet mignon with red wine reduction from Jiko – SPOT ON and so YUMMMMY, and the blackened mahi mahi from Big River Grille (my favorite Disney meal) – very close but not spicy enough for me so they said they can make the guests the way we had at the tasting and mine spicyyyyyy. We also did garlic mashed – nothing special but good and I requested the green beans from Cosmic Rays – perfect!!! Our guests will have a choice of filet and chicken or filet and mahi, but Jeff and I will have a trio in smaller portions…we couldn’t choose just two LOL

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/028.jpg

We talked some more about how we want the filets cooked and I gave them a list of the well done eaters (me included), and more about who was allergic to what (we know most of who is allergic and to what as our guest list is almost all family)

Then we had a break for about an hour, we went over to GF and I ran into Richard again and got a picture with him.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/035.jpg

Then we headed over to Polynesian…all my trips to Disney and I have never been there! I liked it but GF is wayyy better in my opinion. Here are some pretty pictures of Grand Floridian.

Meri came in and we went into the Flora room. We discussed everything WEDDING… how we want our day, ceremony music, cake, and the dessert party. During the beginning planning stages, we opted out of doing a room block. Some of our guests have annual passes (so they can get that discount) and if we did the room block we were told you can not do the dinning plan for our honeymoon. But Meri informed us that even though we didnt do the room block that we still got a free night if our guests booked over 25 nights at a Disney resort. With Jeff's family so big they are using 13 nights alone, with my parents, family friends and then our 6 paid for nights - gets us over the 25!!! So we will stay an extra night and stay at Disney for 7 nights totoal now!!! yeah!!!!!!

We then got to try some cake.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/237.jpg

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/067.jpg

We are doing a 3 tier even though we would have plenty with a 2 tier. I want a certain cake and they can’t do 2 tiers very well with it. We are doing a white cake with the silver ~~And They Lived Happily Ever After~~ with the rhinestone banding and the white chocolate castle on the top. We decided on top tier being marble with milk chocolate filling, middle tier being red velvet with cream cheese filling, and bottom being same as the top marble with milk chocolate filling. Our meeting about the cake ran long because I fell in love with this company that makes Cinderella carriage cake stands, but they charge $700 for one. My dad is extremely handy and is making us one, so I had to get dimensions of the cake and I will need to send those dimensions of the cake stand once we figure it out.

Then we had our meeting with Michelle our floral person. She was very nice. I had brought my 3 inch - 3 ring binder with us and I have 20 tabs in it separating everything…organized yes… know what I want yes…bridezilla maybe LOL

For my bouquet I am using the black red rose…don’t worry it’s not black, just deep deep red. They are almost a burgundy color. And it will have 8 clear Mickey crystals in the bouquet (cause our date is the 8th) and the stems will be wrapped in white satin and have red crystals with hidden Mickey going down the stems. Jeff’s boutonniere will be a single red rose with a hidden Mickey and the stems will also be wrapped in white. The father’s boutonnieres will be a single white rose. The mother’s and grandmother corsages will be able to be pinned or worn around the wrist, they will be spray roses in either red or white (I don’t remember what we picked out).
For the ceremony there will be the $200 amount of silk red rose petals (after this summer they are changing the carpet and cushions in the wedding pavilion to a more neutral color and they are afraid of real red rose petals staining the carpet) sprinkled down the sides and I am supplying our aisle runner from event bella and Disney will put it down for us. We are doing white tulle draped on the pews. And 3 on each side down the aisle of the columns draped in white fabric with the branch centerpieces and they will be moved to reception as centerpieces. We will have petals sprinkled on the alter and I am supplying our own unity candle. The on the brides side of the alter we will do a memorial for the people we have lost – it will be the columns draped with white fabric one for each picture of our lost ones (I will be supplying the picture and picture frame), and one more column draped for a glass hurricane with a white candle and a very small arrangement of white roses – the these will also be moved to reception in the White Hall room.

For the exit I am making our own petal cones, but Disney will be supplying the rose petals in red and white to give it contrast.

For the pre-reception we will be having linens to match inside and chair covers with bows. There will be red rose petals sprinkled on tables and I am providing the centerpieces.

For the reception, we will be having the white crushed romance overlay on the tables and the chair covers with the burgundy satin bow, and the burgundy sating napkin with the rhinestone napkin ring. We will have the silver plate chargers. There will be crystals sprinkled on the tables. We will be using the branch centerpieces (with no butterflies and more crystals) and I am supplying votive candle holders and battery operated candles. On the plate chargers there will be Mickey ears with everyone’s name embroidered as place cards. But we will get the coach chocolate escort cards to be placed outside of White Hall on the marble table. We are getting a price on custom menu cards. The cake table will have clouding and red rose petals and my bouquet will go there. We are doing an Ipod hookup for entertainment.

For the dessert party, we will have black linens and chairs. Note to future brides at Morocco, I think they are trying to make it a no chair dessert party and only do the tall tables…but I fought that issue and we will have 2 tables and 10 chairs and the rest tall tables. For centerpieces we are doing a single cylinder with purple glow gel and 3 of the stars coming out of top.

After our planning session, we were both exhausted, we went to check into our hotel, take a quick nap, and then we had reservations at 1900 park fare for dinner. That dinner was so much fun. I loved it. I think Jeff was a little embarrassed and thought the whole thing was crazy but he was a trooper. The dinner was actually pretty good…I had heard mixed reviews, but I am very glad we went and will be doing it for breakfast during our honeymoon.

Then after dinner we headed over to the boat dock by Narcoossee's to watch the water parade and the fireworks at Disney. It was a pretty good view from there. Then we headed back to our hotel.

In the morning we checked out, and headed over to our appointment with Carolyn Allen’s for Jeff. They were wonderful and we already paid for Jeffs tux and my 2 dress steaming to be done a day before the wedding. Jeff will be wearing a Calvin Klein black tux, with a white shirt, white vest, and white tie. I already got him Mickey cuff links. And we upgraded his shoes with Carolyn Allen's because the standard ones reminded me of a clown.

Then we headed to Magic Kingdom for the day. On the way out of MK, we stopped by the glass place to find something for my mom for mother's day. I ended up getting her a swarovski gold heart necklace and fell in love with a bracelet for me for the wedding day. I passed on my bracelet, but we will be getting that soon!

Then we went home… But it was a great couple of days and made us even more excited for our wedding. :cool1::bride::cool1::bride:

I don’t have our BEO’s yet but when I get them I will post them.

Tote bags we ordered

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/Bags.jpg



All of the shirt transfers I ordered on Etsy from Vegas Bridal, I had heard mixed reviews about them after I already placed my first order with them, but they were great for me, she even custom designed some for me. They did take a couple of weeks to receive, but I will probably order more from her since I need a new one for every day of our trip! :rolleyes1

I ordered a ton on Etsy...see a trend? :rotfl2: That place is amazing!!!!

Thats the only update I have so far.

Yes we are doing giftbags for the guests that stay on Disney property... Only problem is a few guests are checking in two days before us... So I'm thinking we may try to bring them over the weekend before if Disney will hold them for me and put in their rooms. Yea there is sooo much fun stuff to put in them! And we are doing embroidered Mickey ears as place cards at the wedding so they will all be able to sport their ears!

Good luck on your 180 days! My fingers are crossed for you too!

Sorry I've missed a little bit. Guess my little wedding distracted me from your PJ! :goodvibes I love your short white dress, so cute! Your PS looks awesome too, I love how the GF really goes all out. We didn't get that with the BW, even though our chef was amazing and so was the food, it wasn't as pretty. Lucky duck :) The pictures of you going into Franck's are so cute!

Yay for 180 days! All your reservations look great, the only one I think you're missing is Ohana?! Do you not like it or just overlooked it? haha If you don't like it that's fine too :rotfl:

We did welcome bags and had people check in before getting them, they were just delivered to the rooms of the people who had already checked in. Just a thought if you didnt want to drive just to drop them off!

All of your purchases and transfers are amazing, like christmas or birthday for sure!

We have never eaten at O'hana... I was thinking about booking it but there are sooooooo many places we want to try. We go to Disney a lot, but usually for a day or two trips, so we never get the dining plan...so for the honeymoon since we have it - we will be eating good!:lmao: LOL

So last night we went to inspect and try on "MY" dress :) Ugh I was so nervous yesterday leading up to it...I hadnt seen it in months and the one that was at the bridal salon as a trial was really beat up and dirty (consultant actually told me that they had ordered a new one but it wasnt in yet). Well she brought it to me... and it is so perfect!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I went ahead and brought it home with me... I could either do that or leave it at the shop unitl alterations which wont be until October... there was no way I was leaving it there till October! So its hanging in its pretty pink bag on a hook in the guest bedroom. We also went ahead and purchased the mega slip to put underneath... its the largest you can get with out the hoops.... wow did it make it poofy! But you wanna know the best thing... The only alteration I will need is the bustle!!! Because of the mega slip and my super high shoes it makes the length perfect! They said I could take it in a tad at the hips... which I may do at that time... we'll see....

That's awesome about the dress. Word of advice, take pics of how to do the bustle and ensure a couple of people are shown how to do it. Those things can be tricky!!

It's so much fun to have your dress and peek at it from time to time! 5 months!!

What do you think about this?

From each of your experiences,

Comes a very treasured gift.

A special piece of knowledge,

We didn't know exists.

Please share with us your wisdom,

About marriage, love, and life.

How to be a loving husband,

Or a perfect wife.

Please write your hopes and wishes,

To share with us for life.

For the greatest gift of all,

Is the gift of your advice.

What would you like the newlyweds to remember most about this day?

I think your guest book idea is sweet. I have seen people also do decorated cards that people can fill out with advice/comments and then the cards can be used in a wedding scrapbook. We ended up having guests sign a matte frame, which we later filled in with pics from our wedding day.

There is also the ol' polaroid picture idea, where you leave out a polaroid camera, and guests can take pics and then attach to a pre-arranged guest book and add comments. It could be cute to have little Disney related props they can add to the photos!

Props like this on hand held sticks (diy)

I think your guest book idea is sweet. I have seen people also do decorated cards that people can fill out with advice/comments and then the cards can be used in a wedding scrapbook. We ended up having guests sign a matte frame, which we later filled in with pics from our wedding day.

There is also the ol' polaroid picture idea, where you leave out a polaroid camera, and guests can take pics and then attach to a pre-arranged guest book and add comments. It could be cute to have little Disney related props they can add to the photos!

Props like this on hand held sticks (diy)

but something Disney'ish. You could get Mickey ears, mickey big white gloves...oh the possibilities are endless!

Shut me up now.

Awww thats a cute idea with the props :) We are already giving Mickey ears as favors... Ohhhhhh you are on to something!!!!! Hey I added where we will be dining that week... will you guys be at any of the same places? That would be cool if you were!!!

Ahh some days we are at the same park, but we have the same restaurant but for a different meal. WAH. Though, we will be at the park, so might see ya!

If the guests are all getting Mickey ears....that would make for a darn cute pic!! ehhe.

Your wedding journal is making me want to renew our vows at Disney. Though, I think you have to be married 20 years or so to really warrant a vow renewal! haha. So maybe in the year 2025! :rotfl:

Okay so originally we were going to use Impressions for our invitations but I had the price wrong and to get exactly what we wanted with pictures that belong to Disney our 25 invites would have been over $900... I couldn't see justifying spending that on invites. I mean I know that I never keep a invite to a wedding that I've been to after the fact. Plus I wanted to spend that extra on better things not paper :lmao:

We ended up using Somer Studios... I actually found her on Etsy. She does have a castle design that she uses (its not the Cinderella castle, but I never liked Impressions pictures of castles all that much). We have been working with Cristy from Somer Studios for at least 2 months now and she has been extremly accomidating with all my many changes and it only costs $5.00 with her to actually get a sample of your invite (so I could actually see how it will eb put together not just a proof). Anyways, we should be getting our invites next week and I will def post a picture of the finished product for you all to see. We ended up going with a pocket because of all the information (we have an invite card, response card, reception card, dessert party card, and farewell brunch card, and we also did a timeline card. And the best part... for 25 invites w/ printin gon envelopes came to $178!!!!:cool1:

We received our invitations today in the mail!!!! We decided not to use Impressions because of the cost. But we went with Somer Studios. I actually found them on Etsy. Cristy was wonderful to work with and very accommodating with my many changes. Our invitations for 25 of them with the envelopes printed and shipping to us was $178. We had 4 cards in the pocket and an RSVP envelope, and I also had her make a calendar of events to put in the envelope with the overall invite. I am extremely happy with the quality and how they came out. We also ordered stamps from Zazzle. They have Disney designs, but the great part is you can add text to them. We havent received them yet, but Ill post a picture when we do.

Here are some pictures...

Thanks!!!! Yeah we were debating over the pocketfold ever since we started talking about invitations, but with so many wedding events that I wanted separate cards for - we thought the pocketfold would work best. I love them.... Now if our stamps would come in.... They are supposed to arrive August 21st, but I really wanted them before this weekend to work on them. Oh well...

Tomorrow is 100 days till our wedding!!!! I cant believe how fast the time is flying! Our guests have started getting our invitations and have been sending me texts and calling us to say they love them.

Also today the AP rates for resorts came out, and we saved $600 on our AKL part of our stay, but on the first part of our stay at GF they didnt offer discounts for theme park view - so no discount there. But we paid our honeymoon resorts and dining plans off!!! That feels good to take care of that :cool1::cool1::cool1:

94 days till the wedding!!!!

I have a mini update... We ordered the 4 row rhinestone banding for our cake from Ebay and it came... It is very sparkly and only costed me $65 for what Disney wanted to charge $350 for, so I am VERY happy!

We also ordered and received these from Stumps Party. They are for our 6 tables for our pre-reception on the patio of White Hall. We got 6 of them for $108. They are super cute, of great quality, and wayyy bigger than they look.
http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/PreReceptionCenterpiece.jpg

We also ordered 8" Mr. & Mrs. Rhinestone letters to put in front of Jeff and I on our head table. We got them off of Etsy from a store called I Do Bling... They were a little bit of splurge for $125... but I think they will totally be worth it and we can use them around our house after the wedding. If Etsy wasnt down I would post a picture...

On another note, this Monday our big payment is due! Ahhh that's scary! But it just means we are getting SOOOOOOO CLOSE!!!

Also, I have another big test this Thursday for my ultrasound credentials... This abdomen test is to be ARDMS certified! Before I took my last test for Physics, alot of you wished me pixie dust and I know that helped me pass.... so wish me luck on this next test tomorrow afternoon. Im really scared for this one, 3 hour test with 120 questions. I just hope I studied hard enough. AHHHHHHH!

Thanks for the good luck girls... Unfortunately I did not pass the abdomen test. I was really upset at first about that because there is a waiting period before I can re-take it, but the class that graduated before us, about 3/4 of the class did not pass the first time. It sucks because they dont tell you what you got wrong, and its $250 everytime you take it... blahhhhhhh. :(

But I took the Physics test a couple of months back, and Im just so glad I passed that one.

In wedding news...

We are starting to receive our guests response cards back!! And we decided that this weekend we are going to Tampa to the jewelry store to order our wedding bands.

Things are starting to fall into place...finally.

Okay so change of plans this weekend... We got a call this morning that Jeff's grandma is sick. She went in for testing yesterday and they found out she has Leukemia, and they are giving her only a couple of weeks left. We actually are heading up to Baltimore early tomorrow morning and staying for a few days. Please keep her in your prayers.

09-24-2012, 07:56 PM
Thank you all for your well wishes for Jeff's grandma. They first had her at the hospital for like 4 days and you could tell she was getting cabin fever and wanted to be able to move around. She normally lives in a nursing home, so not being able to do much really seemed to make her feel worse. They then moved her our last day up in PA with her to another nursing home, but one that the nurses are able to help her more with getting to the bathroom and moving around, and they also have Hospice come in to see her. Jeff's family has sent us some videos of his grandma after we got home, and she was able to go play Bingo and go visit a garden that they have there - she seemed a little more perky. So I think it will be better for her. At least she can do enjoyable things right now.

After we got back this weekend, we did go to Tampa to order our wedding bands. It feels so much more real now!!! They should come in the end of October or beginning of November. It is a set to my engagement ring.

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/WeddingbandMichelle.jpg

I have also started getting my totes for Disney ready. I have one for the ceremony, one for the pre-reception, and one for the reception all labeled and ready to go! Of course we will be adding more stuff in them.

I still have to find shirts for all my rhinestone transfers... I dont even know where to look for them. Im hoping to get a white tighter fitting tshirt with either a vneck or round neck. Im hoping to find them some where that they are like 3 for $20 or something.... Any ideas???

My mom also ordered her dress for the wedding. She was very undecided about wearing a dress, my mom usually goes for dress pants and a top, but I really wanted her in a dress. I just thought with Cinderella's Carriage and the fact that I am also having her walk me down the aisle with my dad. She ordered it exactly as pictured. I love it and think she will look so beautiful! :love:

Thanks for reading :) keep following along!!!

I will look through my book and let you know who we got it from later this morning. I know Disney wanted to charge $350 for what I got for $65! And I ordered 4 yards and they sent me 4.4 yards. Don't know when your wedding is, but I'll be trying to sell it after our wedding.

Thank you! I'm getting married on January 7, but we're leaving for FL on the 3rd. My quote is $170 for 2 of the 3 tiers. That is great you were able to save so much on it! I consider anything I save right now as a win and will help towards the cost of other extras!! :)

I know it's getting so close... Imstarting to freak out and stress a little bit. Still a lot that needs to be done!

Haha like that meal schedule? I know, it just shows how crazy I am! I think the hardest part of leaving for the honeymoon and wedding, will be saying goodbye to our puppy Chanel. She is our fur daughter and I just wish she could be part of our wedding. But she will have fun at her Disney... a pet resort.

Yes I LOVE LOVE LOVE our invites. I think if you order through impressions... they will for sure turn out amazing and if you are ordering more of them then it makes the price per piece not so scary. I am so excited my mom ordered that dress. We actually went this weekend for her to look for shoes for it, but the dress place is getting her a swatch, so she's gonna wait till then to look again.

Thank you for the well wishes for Jeff's grandma.

So this weekend I re-organized the big totes to deliver to Franck's studio the day before the wedding. Im just getting so anxious to use whats in them! I want it to come already, but Im not ready yet.

I am bringing heart shaped glass votives for the tables and going to have a family member put them down before everyone is allowed into the reception room. We found the battery operated candles for them - I HATE those cheap plastic looking tea lights that you can find everywhere, so we found ones that actually look like a real candle and they smell like vanilla too. We also got some burgandy ribbon to put around the heart votive and tie into a bow. Then Im going to put Mickey heads around on the ribbon with one 7 mm rhineston and one 5 mm rhinestone. I'll post pictures of those once I start doing them. And were going to start making some more purchases of wedding stuff later this week. And start putting together the welcome bags.

But I have to say... we are now 14 days till the deadline of our respose cards... and I have only received a few of them... I dont get it. People that already have booked hotels at Disney havent even sent them back yet. I really dont wanna have to make phone calls because people cant seem to get them in on time... REALLY PEOPLE???!!!???!!!

Okay, enough of my ranting and raving... sorry about that. :lmao:

Dealing with pets and the wedding/honeymoon is tough. My family and I have three cats and every time I try and bring up wedding talk the first question out of my mom's mouth is who's going to take after the cats. Sigh, another to go on the to-do list! lol

I'm totally in agreement with you on the battery operated candles. I'm probably going to be on the lookout for those myself in the near future. Where did you manage to find yours, if you don't mind me asking? :goodvibes

Dealing with pets and the wedding/honeymoon is tough. My family and I have three cats and every time I try and bring up wedding talk the first question out of my mom's mouth is who's going to take after the cats. Sigh, another to go on the to-do list! lol

I'm totally in agreement with you on the battery operated candles. I'm probably going to be on the lookout for those myself in the near future. Where did you manage to find yours, if you don't mind me asking? :goodvibes
I found these at Joann'a Fabrics...brand name is inglow. Not sure if you have them where you are. They are $4.99 for 2. But they do have them at walmart online for 12 for $30. Only problem with those is they are ivory and not white. We can't use the ivory ones cause our overlays for the tables are white and I'm afraid that it will be noticeable. They are like rounded and that's why I love. I'll post picture and walmart link tonight for you if you can't find. :) :) :)

Okay here is a picture of the white candles from Joann's Fabric. And I mis-spoke... they are $5.99 for a set of 2.

Thanks for the link! They looks exactly like what I'm looking for. I may just try going to a couple Walmarts to see if I can find them in person. :goodvibes

Okay this morning I woke up and said I need to work on wedding stuff.... well Im still working on it... LONG DAY.

We ordered some more things this weekend. We ordered our gift card holder, we ordered our custom unity candles from a seller on Etsy - she is also making our memorial candle as well, I ordered a Mrs. Hart wedding dress hanger, we ordered our aisle runner, some stuff for the welcome bags, and Jeff ordered a iron on transfer for a shirt for the honeymoon. He also has 7 more shirts to order for himself. I will post pictures of the things we ordered as soon as they come in!

Today I did our welcome bag folder informative pages. I made printed packets on pretty gray and white granite colored paper on all of the following info below and put it inside gray folders, and made monogram to put on the front with a large label. They look really nice, but I ran out of paper. I bought 500 sheets and Im only making 20 welcome bags. I really wanted to just make a newsletter, but I was intimidated about making one and didnt feel it would hole enough information for me. I will post a picture after I buy more paper tomorrow and continue printing and have one completely finished. If anyone wants the pages that I made into packets, Id be more than happy to email them to you. Making these folders turned a little more expensive than I wanted to do, but I think the guests will have all their questions answered. :)

We are also the proud owner of 15,000 1 carat clear crystals and 200 3/4 inch clear crystals for the tables! I bought them off Ebay from a company in China that has 99.8% positive reviews for $47.00!

I also made an email newsletter to send out with Jeff's help. We still have about 3/4 of our guests that have not sent back RSVP's.... and the deadline is in 10 days... I told my mom if they cant remember to send back their RSVP to me, or let me know by email or phone if they are coming by the begining of November... Im not tracking them down... I mean come on people!! :thumbsup2

I cant believe how close its getting! Im getting very stressed out. :crazy2:

Wow, so productive. And sorry for the frustration about your guests not responding...90% of my guests had not responded by the due date, so I know what you're going through. It's so rude and I just don't understand what is so hard about checking a box and sending in the already addressed and stamped envelope?!?! I finally had to send an email and even then some did not respond!

It's all coming together!!! Little by little, all those TO DO items will be gone! Greatest advice a friend gave me before I got hitched...

A few days before the big day, book a nice massage for yourself. Give fiance the cell phone and take no calls for a good chunk of the day. It helped me relax and get more centered. At some point, you will have nearly done it ALL. It's time to focus on you! :thumbsup2

Okay so I was looking for some one that could re-create the Times Guide for me to put in the guests welcome bags. Well there is a guy by the name of dumbwaiterboy on disboards and he is amazing! He used to be a wedding planner for years - so hit him up if you need some designs done! I love how they came out, and when I said I wanted to not put the same design in everyones folders, He create 6 different themes for me. Here they are below.

WOW, those Times Guides are awesome. I started to create one on my own, but I'm going to contact him. Everything you've pulled together sounds amazing and yes, that is alot of crystals, but it will sure sparkle!! I love the bling too. Your welcome folder is awesome and great information for your guests.

Okay so I have a mini update and I need to rant some...but that later.

I purchased our unity candles and a memorial candle on Etsy for a shop called Jorgia Weddings and they came the other day! They are so pretty and as soon as I can post a picture I will.

I also had our door hangers printed. I originally had them designed on the dis about a year ago... unfortunately I wanted them professionally printed and when I tried to the quality was really crappy. So... since my mom works at a signs company, she had her art person re-create them and change the things that I didnt like about them and they came out PERFECT and so pretty! We got 10 made for us (we are staying 7 nights and I figured I wanted extras in case some one took them off our door), and I got 20 made for the guests. I added them to the welcome bag folders.

I got all the bare neccessities for the welcome bag. I will post a picture sometime soon! So the only things we need for the welcome bags are snacks.

We payed off our hair and make up services for me, and my mom, and Jeff's mom (remember we arent having a bridal party)... so that felt so good. I also purchsed really pretty thank you cards for everyone we need to tip on the wedding day and I made a list of the amounts so we can have those ready before we leave. I also made some cute mousekeeping envelopes to put their tips in.

I also ordered a custom hanger for my wedding dress on Etsy, but it hasnt came yet.

Our coach gift card holder came and it is so freaking cute!!!

My mom also went around to the different Joanns fabrics in the area to buy our battery operated candles for the heart votives. So that is checked off the list!

I also purchased some foot petals cushions for my shoes... those shoes are going to be killer (and although I bought white wedge flip flops for the wedding too I want to wear the heels as long as I can). Anyways right now there is a coupon for foot petals (it only saved me $5.00 but hey thats $5.00!!). The code is FPVIP2012 in case anyone is interested.

OKAY... now my rant... sorry girls. Why do people insist on bring a guest EVEN if they arent dating someone serious and I DIDNT put guest on their wedding invite?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I dont get it.... I didnt put guest for a reason.:mad:

Im done now... thanks for listening!

angelbear425
10-17-2012, 02:37 PM
I may have missed it, but what is the website for the footpetals? I would like to get some for a pair of killer heels I have. Sooo pretty, but super uncomfy for a period of time.

That's extremely rude of the person and I would probably say something if it were me. I would just say that the invite is only for you and not a guest because you didn't budget for that (or something along those lines). I don't see why you shouldn't and the person should totally be understanding about it.

It still amazes me the lack of awareness some people have when it comes to weddings - really, why not also bring their cousin's brother's best friend's sisters daughter?!?! haha

Waiting for the invites to come back and what people were saying was the worst part of planning so far - get passed this and everything else is all about you and your day. It's going to be here before you know it!

The thank you cards are an amazing idea, I never thought of including an actual thank you card with my vendor's tips :blush: now I'll make sure I do that with a nice envelope! I'm also so excited to see a picture of your hanger when it arrives! What does it say? I want to order one for myself once I've decided what I want it to say. I've seen "I do", the bride's wedding date, "bride's name <3 groom's name", "mrs ..." and "Disney bride" to name a few. I just can't decide which one I want for mine!!

I'm sorry about people inviting themselves to your wedding, I have no idea what to suggest since it shouldn't be up to you to spell it out for them. I have a similar situation: my college roommate has assumed that she's my Maid of Honor!! I have already asked my bridal party...

I can't believe people would invite extra guests! I thought is was bad enough having family tell me I should be inviting about a hundred people I hardly ever see - I tend to go high pitched and say "we're paying per head"!

I also ordered a charm to hold my grandfathers ashes... I know it sounds a little gross to some, but I really wanted to make sure he was there with me on my wedding day. I plan on attaching it to my bouquet and only, me, my parents, and Jeff knows what it is. I got a butterfly design because everytime I see a butterfly I think of him. Here is a picture

I love the idea of using the embroidered Mickey ears as the place cards at the reception.....actually, we're doing that as well. DF said it was something he definitely wanted to do (I promise I didn't steal your idea!). It was something that we knew we wanted to do when we first started thinking about wedding details. I would love a picture with everyone in their hats. :thumbsup2

Yay! Another bride that is using Mickey ears... and I wouldnt care if even if you did borrow the idea. That's so funny, we knew too that we wanted to use them mostly to be able to get a picture of everyone in their ears too!

Okay this weekend I worked on putting our guest bags together. We are still needing a couple of snacks. Thinking some kind of chips, maybe a Mickey Rice Crispie, and something else. We also need to get a few more things for the 4 kids bags that we have. In the bag is our folder with 55 pages of info, park maps, photopass cards, times guide recreated for the wedding, Im celebrating/first visit buttons and door hangers, 2 bottles of water, and the bare neccessitites bag (which I had hopes of adding more to it, but they got expensive quick!) with kleenex packs, a lint roller, advil, chap stick, sunscreen, and a hand sanitizer from bath and body works. I didnt add things that the hotel would have in the rooms, or that people could ask for if they forgot. I wanted to add ponchos, but at $.98 from walmart, I would need like 30 of them and that was another $30 I didnt wanna spend on these. Sorry the pictures arent that great... the sun was shining in that window.

I forgot if I posted this before (sorry if I did), but the best wedding advice I got from friends (which I followed) was a few days before the wedding, have a "leave me alone" day. Book a massage, turn off the cell phone, and just relax!

So... today is my first fitting with my dress! Ahhhhhh Im very nervous! I also have todecide onmy bustle for the dress. Im thinking a double french bustle to stay with the theme of the pickups in the dress.

And we are picking up our wedding bands today!!!!!!!!!!

2012DisneyWorldBride
10-23-2012, 08:57 PM
Yay! We got our wedding bands!!!!! Here is a picture of them togehter and with my engagement ring... Sorry for my dry hands ugh so gross

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/WeddingBands.jpg

And we also went and I got my first fitting done!!! My alterations cost was only $100 total! Since my shoes are so high (5.5 inches) I dont need to hem the dress, and the only alterations I needed was the bustle. I decided on a french bustle (sorry no pictures - I forgot!). Funny thing, we drove an hour to my dress place and the alterations lady lives like 3 minutes from us. :lmao: We actually really hit it off with her and she also does alterations from her house which we will now use her to get anthing else done that we ever need.

I had been having bad dreams about getting the alterations done and them spilling coffee on my dress and then another dream about them eating cheetos and getting orange fingerprints all over it, so of course I had to tell the alterations lady lol

She reassured me that they can not eat in the alterations deptartment and that she washes her hands lol

I was also looking for a shawl for the dessert party since its in December and at night. My mom had some pashminas in white (which ended up being off white by my dress, silver, and black. I really wanted it in white so I was going to order one on Ebay for like $10, but when we went the dress place today I asked them if they had anything that would match my dress. They had the perfect shawl for my dress, it is white satin just like my dress, and the detailing actually matches my dress perfectly! And they sold me the one they had there for $50! Im so happy with it!!!

Well I heard that if you have a tag on the bags that has the guests name and reservation/confirmation number that the specific hotel that the guest is staying at will have a Disney employee deliver them to their room. I hope thats still the case, cause we are planning to deliver them to the resorts the day before the wedding when we get there in the morning and I really dont wanna deliver them to our guests and spend all that time talking to everyone...that sounds bad but we will have lots to do and I dont wanna waste that time.

Thank you for the comments on our rings... I cant wait to wear them together!!!

I dotn really have much of an update, but yesterday we went to walmart AGAIN for more plastic bins to hold wedding stuff in. Because we are allowed to give Disney 3 for the stuff they are setting for us, but because I have enlisted my mom and godmother to set the stuff Disney will charge us to set I needed bins for that stuff too. I didnt want all my stuff to get smushed so they are all in boxes and bubble wrap inside of the bins. And because we are doing Mickey Ears as favors and I didnt want them to get crushed before then, we have a bin for those too! I have a total of 7 bins that we have to drive there. Is that too many? I mean one bin is all our wedding stuff cause I didnt wanna pack it and forget something so its all togther, like my wedding jewelery, shoes, Jeff's cuff links, gater, and that kinda stuff. I looked at the bins last night with Jeff and then thought how is this all going to fit in my SUV with our luggage and our welcome bags (I chose to put them together now because I want to deliver before we check in and didnt know where we would then put them together). Oh geez this is starting to get funny. :rotfl::lmao::rotfl2::hyper:

How many bins did you all have or have now?

We officially have 31 days till our wedding!!! And only 30 days till we leave for Disney!

Yesterday my mom took off a half day to spend some time with me and get things done for the wedding. We went to start her alterations for her dress. Here is a picture of my mommy in her dress...

http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n582/lilbunnichelle/MOMSDRESS.jpg

I think she looks so beautiful! Her alterations will be done in 2 weeks. And then they will press her dress when we get closer to the wedding. It has lots of wrinkles.

We also went to lunch yesterday with Jeff, we went to go vote, went to get our eyebrows done... I told Jeff I was gonna go to get my eyebrows done about 3 days before the weddding and he then made me worry that if they mess them up what would I do, so I went yesterday and I will just keep up with them as they start to grow in here and there, and my mom also did my haircolor... I used to be a stylist and have taught her how to cut & color my hair, we will do it again like 2 days before we leave.

Today, I worked on separating our crystals per table and per heart votive. And I also worked on getting some of our tips in order and in envelopes. We had a yard sale last weekend and make $224 :banana: so that helped with that!

We are also going this Saturday for our Annual Pass preview of the new Fantasy Land!!! Im very excited to go to that. We did the Ariel version of the preview and I have to admit Im a little excited to meet Ariel in her tail! Im going to bring her a dinglehopper :)

OMG its getting soooooooooooooo close!

This past Saturday we went to Disney for the Fantasyland Preview for annual passholders... We had to re-new our passes as of Novemeber 11th so we decided to acctivate our wedding vouchers. Of course the cast member at the ticket counter wanted to give us happily ever after pins, so I worte on them "in 28 days!".

Let me just say, I thought the new area of fantasyland was AMAZING! Since Ariel is my favorite Disney princess I LOVED it. There have been alot of mixed reviews with The Little Mermaid ride... While its not super exciting, I thought it was neat. The line to wait in for it is really well done. There are areas to play with a little crab and that seemed neat but the wait was only a few minutes so we didnt really get to play along much. It is going to be a hot line in the middle of summer. We then we to go check out BOG and see if they were open for lunch service, which they were, and we only had like a 10 minute wait to sit. The inside of BOG is simply stunning. We chose to eat in the ballroom, but checked out the rose gallery room, and the west wing... I didnt really care for the rose gallery room, but the other two are really neat. We both ordered the turkey carved sandwiches, and they were either served with fries or green beans, and the sandwich was served warm and was very yummy. We also got a triple chocolate cupcake to share and that was very rich and so YUMMY! Then we headed over to meet Ariel in her fins!!! I was super excited about this, and since when we exchanged our wedding vouchers they gave us happily ever after pins, and we wrote in "in 28 days!", Ariel was asking all about the wedding, if I found my prince, and wanted to see my ring. She then asked since our wedding is going to be at the wedding pavilion at Disney since she could swim to it, could she come! Of course I said YES! Boy, they dont get out of character. Then we were going to go through the Belle thing, but we decided against it since I wasnt all that excited about it and the wait was 40 mins. We did go to Gastons Tavern and we had a Lefou's Brew.... VERY YUMMY, if you like apple sauce or apple juice you will like it. I think it would be very yummy in summer time since its frozen. Then we headed out to enjoy the rest of the park. I have picutres of the whole thing but havent dowloaded them yet... check badk in a few days!

Yesterday I worked on some wedding stuff. I finished our welcome bags now that we have an exact number of guests. We put lanyards with 10 pins on them for the kids that will be coming over to Disney (3 coming to the wedding and 2 not coming to the wedding but coming to Disney and being babysat during the wedding). I wrote up a card to put in their bags with info about pin trading. I also tied our ribbons on our Mickey Ears (were using them as place cards since we got our guests names embroydered on them), I have a burgundy ribbon for filet and chicken, and a silver ribbon for filet and fish. I thought they would look weird but they turned out okay, now we just have to make an annoucement for guests to keep those ribbons visable since that tells the servers what meal they are getting. I separated our crystals into a container for each table and mixed the sizes up... wow each table is getting lots of crystals! I think it will be so PRETTY!

I think thats all the updating i have right now. My mom and dad are coming over for dinner one night this week and my dad is helping Jeff with projects we ahve around here, and my mom is helping me finish the heart votives I have for the table. I will post a final picture of them whne we finish them.

GETTING SUPER CLOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!::yes::

Im sorry I havent done an update in a few days... We have been so busy! Last year we did our first Thanksgiving at our house, and we decided that we would do it again this year... What was I thinking! :lmao: LOL Im happy to keep the tradition continuing but Ive had to clean the house too in the middle of all my wedding stuff. I was planning to clean the house right before we leave for Disney anyways, so I just puches it up like 2 weeks and will do a light cleaning before the wedding. We will have 14 people at our house for Thanksgiving!

In the meatime of all that, we made our final payment to Disney of $4351.00... with our total with them coming to $17,351.00, and our wedding total coming to $32,000! Yea wayyyyyy over budget.

My moms dress will be done with alterations this Tuesday, and my dress will be done the following Monday! Yay so excited!

I have also finished some things, and received a few things in the mail... maybe tomorrow I can get pictures up here.

I'm envious that your day is so close! Loved all the pics from the Fantasyland expansion. We were there the same weekend and picked up our annual passes, too, though I think we went on Sunday vice Saturday. Like you, we thought the queue for Ariel's ride was very good and the ride cute, though obviously geared for the younger kids. We also thought BOG for lunch was quite tasty and how you order and are served is quite unique. As for the brew, it was just okay, I thought. I did drink all of mine with lunch at BOG, but it was lacking something. Here's hoping Ariel shows up at your wedding! ;)

I had "started" a PJ that you commented on, as we are getting married the day after you, Dec 9, in the Wedding Pavilion! Even though I have not spent much time on the Boards here recently, I had suscribed to your thread so I have been watching all your plans! We are getting SOOOOOOO close to our wedding days! I just checked in our resort online and everything is falling into place! I go to my final fitting on Thursday this week! Anyway, I just wanted to say that it has been fun watching your plans, I feel like I have been going through this with you since our days are so close together! Our rehearsal is at the WP at noon on Saturday and then rehearsal dinner at 5pm at O'Hana! What time is your ceremony? I might try to steal a peak!

WE ARE OFFICIALLY AT SINGLE DIGITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phewwww sorry it took so long to write you girls back. I had a scare this week... I started feeling very ishy and nauseous, then I started having pains in my stomach where you would have pains if you had appendicitis, and had alot of the symptoms. Plus my dad has had appendicits and noticed alot of the same symptoms. But as embarassing as it is I am also grateful... I am also had an issue with being constipated :rotfl2: ever since I was little... and realized as were thinking it was appendicitis that it could be the other issue that I have always had. Well sure enough... I got medicine for it and feel much better... but boy was I scared! At 10 days out thinking I needed to go the emergency room and maybe have surgery! AHHHH We tried to hold off too, until we knew that it wasnt something easily fixed because I have really sucky medical insurance (since I dont have a job and am too old to be on my parents still), and my deductible is $5000!

So...needless to say I am very happy it wasnt appendicitis and very grateful. Not too mention I lost 15 lbs being sick... not that I lost it in a good way... but I thought it was kinda funny. Tonight I have been stuffing my face with food though because I am finally hungry again!

Okay so at the beginning of us planning a disney wedding... I told my dad, who is super handy, that I wanted a Cinderella's Carriage cake stand. I showed him pictures online of what I liked and he has been busy making it. Yesterday he brought it over to show us what it looked like so far. They are also adding some crystals and some finishing touches... but I love it and think its really neat! I post a picture after its completely finished. Now to get it to Disney and make sure they are careful with it.

The pictures shows one of the vanes coming down out of the way for how Disney will insert the cake... so that one in the frotn will make a circle of them around it.

I showed him pictures online of what I liked and he has been busy making it. Yesterday he brought it over to show us what it looked like so far. They are also adding some crystals and some finishing touches... but I love it and think its really neat! I post a picture after its completely finished. Now to get it to Disney and make sure they are careful with it.

The pictures shows one of the vanes coming down out of the way for how Disney will insert the cake... so that one in the frotn will make a circle of them around it.
