Cost of a DCL Wedding & Disneymoon

*Hi!*

Hi ~

Boyfriend and I have decided on a Disney Dream Wedding - September 2011 hopefully on Castaway Cay. Thought I'd start sharing my progress/plans/thoughts, etc.

A little background. We are not officially engaged. He is currently having "the talk" with my mama. We are from St. Louis, MO and have lived together the past year. Started dating January 17, 2009.

*How we met*

We met on Yahoo Personals (now part of Match.com). I like NEVER EVER wanted to do online dating (like ever). But I had moved back to St. Louis from graduate school and was finding it really hard to meet someone. I'm not a "party girl" and meeting someone at a bar wasn't going to happen.... My friends didn't have any single guy friends.... I didn't have a childhood guy friend that was single.... Well I did but he is gay, so that wouldn't work. So my BFF forever, KARA, who was in town visiting family for Christmas, met her DH online. She talked me into posting a profile. I was too nervous and had her do it.

After talking to a few people online, I got a and a "Hello" from Brent. We talked online. He called. I didn't answer. And finally called him back.

We set up the basic dinner (Friday's) and a movie (Gran Torino) date. I figured if we didn't like each other at least we'd have some distractions.

So long story short. That night went well. We had a second date the next day (Applebee's and the Zoo). And a third date the next day (couldn't even tell you what it was). I like to say he just never left after that. 6 months later I bought a house and he moved in.

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !
DLRP is quite simply my spiritual home

Hi to Disney Diva another Stl Disney Bride
Hi ~ Glad your daughters wedding was beautiful, I'm excited for my own. We do have an assigned DFTW planner for the cruise, beyond that I don't, I'm not using a travel agent or wedding planner here.

So in wedding planning news. My future MIL called me yesterday - we all got our assigned dinner times and show times on the ship. Well they didn't match but one quick phone call and it was fixed. We have the 6 pm (main seating) dinner time and 9 pm show time. I think it'll be great so we don't have to rush at all.

Other than that we are just trying to figure out when to spend time in Disney before or after the cruise as future hubby only gets a week off work and the cruise leaves on a Thursday. We also want to have an MK/Epcot photo shoot and if he's not to see me in my dress before the wedding we can't take the pictures til monday. So things to ponder. Any thoughts?

Planning....

Finally have more plans in place.

Flying down night before and staying at Pop. After the cruise we are spending Sunday evening-Saturday (way way too early) at All Star Music for our Disneymoon. I'm driving Brent crazy looking at restaurants in order to make dinner reservations.

I am extremely excited that my Maid of Honor is coming over from Australia. She's my Italian sister (lived with my family when I was a senior in high school). She is also bringing my "something borrowed" for the wedding. In sad news, I'm not sure the Best Man is coming. My fiance's brother joined the military so it is looking like he is unable to attend, but we are proud of him for serving.

We booked our St. Louis reception for October 1st. We are slowly working on sending out Save the Dates/Invitations. I have a mock passport invite complete for those coming on the cruise. I am trying to decide on a very cheap option for Save the Dates and Invitations for the reception. I'm also looking on cheap options for food/decor. We don't have a lot of wiggle room in the budget.

I'm thinking of creating post cards through some sort of online template for the save the dates and having them printed at Kinkos (or similiar). I found a couple cute ideas but am work so I will post the links later.

Lisa, I knew it was you on last weeks podcast. I referenced your planning journal a ton when I was preparing for my trip. So thanks!

Aimee
