The Proposal - as told by Thomas
 
July 19, 2011

Quote:

Lyndsay and I talked about a vacation and I talked with Jen about taking Lyndsay to Disney and asking her there. Surprisingly enough, we were able to find a vacant room at the Shades of Green resort at Disney. Up to the point of our arrival at Disney, Lyndsay was clueless of my plans and was even clueless of our staying at a resort. Once we got to the gate though and the guy asked where we were going, I had to spill the beans.

The next day we went to Magic Kingdom and my plan was to do it in front of the castle, but the heat and crowd quickly had me thinking otherwise. I began to play the act of it was too hot and I was tired, knowing we would go back and I could begin my plotting once again. I asked her to go and sit outside at the water, as we were walking I asked her to look at a fish and when she turned around I was down on one knee and asked "Would you want to spend the rest of your life with me"? Her response "Yes". The rest is history.
Here's some pics -

Potential Wedding Attire
 
I think I've decided to go with Fern and Orange for the wedding colors. Here are the four dresses I REALLY like -

This is to show the accent color - orange. The dresses will be green, but the flowers will be orange and cream, mostly.

Bouquets & Boutonnieres
 
I've been toying around with the idea of a brooch bouquet. I'm not completely decided yet...so here are a few bouquets I like.

We are pretty much decided on the boutonnieres. Thomas' sister found a link to Star Wars boutonnieres. I really like the idea - its subtle, so not making the wedding Star Wars 'themed'...but it shows a little of Thomas' personality.

...and for the groomsmen - http://www.instructables.com/files/d...YB4.MEDIUM.jpg

...and for your own nerdy delight...here's the link!Star Wars Boutonnieres

I already found and bought the plastic rings...got plenty of time to find the rest of the supplies. http://www.militarysos.com/forum/ima...ies/giggle.gif

I haven't been active on here...and started a planning thread on MSOS (practically identical to this one)...so I figured I'd create one on here too. :)
