So glad your husband came around. We will do a vow renewal next december to celebrate 10 years of marriage, 15 years committment.
I don't have any real plans made yet. I know I want either sunset pointe or the pavillion. I want Mickey and Minnie at the reception.
here are two different plans I have in mind : one is having a mid to late afternoon service and a catered dinner at the GF summerhouse followed by a dessert party at the marina. The other is a late morning/ early afternoon service ,have a meal catered to our grand villa with an illuminations dessert party that evening.
I'm not sure on how long each event will take since I called Disney weddings, epcot catering and the GF events all back in August and have yet to have my calls returned. Maybe it will give some idea though.

I want to do the mk photo shoot, but I think I want to do it on another day.

I thought about getting together for fireworks that night but thought we would be tired since we got up so early for th MK shoot - I'm glad I made that decision becasue we were tired!

The next day everyone went to the parks, we met up at the Castle and had lunch there.

We had dinner reservations at V&A for our actual 10 year anniversary.

THis is a ruff draft very ruff.

Wedding at sunset point or Pavillion ? 3pm or 5 pm not sure yet. I want to get photos then dinner then cake later. I want to go somewhere where I can get fireworks for our photos at night. I was thinking 1900 park fare but I do not think you can get firework photos there. MK photo shoot either the next day or the day of. I am hoping day of as I want to spend the rest of my stay at the parks with my kids :)

About 18-20 guest not sure just yet. I have about 2 years to figaure all of this out. I am planning now as everyone including me is out of town so it is like a big production.

Here is my initial plan--although haven't spoken with the coordinatory, Karen Serrette yet. I left a message for her and am waiting to hear from her.

I think I would like to do the MK photo shoot the morning of my wedding or the day after--but have to wait and see what is available.

Cast will be DH, me, DD-10, DS-7 and DS-3 (turning 4 on trip)
My in-laws
My sister, brother-in-law, 2 nieces (16 & 12) and nephew (13)

We are scheduled for Sunset Pointe at 5pm. I would like to do a mock cake cutting and the traditional dances & champagne toast.

Dinner at Narcossee's (I think or 1900 Park Fare)

Wishes Fireworks Cruise on the Grand I with wedding cake/champagne (ginger-ale for the kiddos) and tuxedo strawberries

We will actually be in Florida for two weeks. So the first 5 days we are going to Sea World/Universal and then spending the last 10 days at Disney.
