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 -



I told him to make a funny face...he failed

My bling.

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.

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.

Planning Session

I haven't updated in quite some time! I had our planning session on Thursday, 02/16 and we just crossed over the 9 month mark until our wedding!

Thomas is still deployed...until May...which kinda sucks...scratch that, really sucks. I just wish he could be more involved in the planning.

At our planning session we went over decor, timeline, deadlines, transportation, and cake. I didn't take any pictures because my phone died.

After the planning session, we went to Winter Park to meet with Jonathan from Jonathan's Flowers. I think we're going to hire him for our decor for the ceremony and our personal flowers.

Here is a mock-up of my bridal bouquet.

Our Invites

We did a trial run on our invites...I'm pretty happy with how they turned out...what do you think?













The outside envelope as well as the RSVP return envelopes are both orange like the band in the first picture. We're also going to add some sort of mickey touch on the band.
