You can upload pictures from your computer on a website like photobucket.com and then you can just attach them to your posts by using the URL provided on the website you uploaded your pictures from.

Hope that helps! Can't wait to see your pictures!

So I got my LOA and exchange certificate for the annual passes in the mail today! and we also got our wedding planning kit! so excited! It was a good mail day!

Our coordinator is Tanis Armstrong...anyone worked with her? How is she?

I am so tempted to jump in the car and head to Disney right now! It's snowy and icy right now, and I am ready for some sunshine!

I am a dance teacher and we are getting ready for a dance competition/convention, so I am stuck in town til Spring Break. But I will probably break down and go in April. So for now, I'll be planning and brainstorming as much as possible!

what I know so far....

So at this early stage of planning...I do know a few key things that I want.

Wedding Day: October 13th, 2011. 10:00AM at Sea Breeze Pointe (one of my guests, and dance student, is celebrating her 18th Bday on this day! So thankful that she was willing to share her big day with me!) :

After a quick change, and pics with our flower girl/ring bearer in front of the castle, FH and I are eating at Cinderella's Table. I will find a great place for everyone else to go, but haven't figured it out yet.

DP: at Epcot, Thursday night (probably Morocco, because it's one of my favorite pavilions) which will serve as our "reception."

MK/Epcot Photo Shoot: Saturday the 15th. We are scheduled to be picked up at 7:30. May change that to earlier. Need to look at sunrise times for that time of year. I want at least a few in the dark!
I know a lot of people debate back and forth about the photo shoot, mostly because of the money. But for me, it's the deal breaker and the absolute best part of getting married at Disney (except FH, of course). I would be willing to forgo the flowers, the cake, the limo...but not my chance to stand in front of Cinderella's Castle with my prince charming! But that's just me!

Saturday evening we will have our farewell dinner at Margaritaville at CityWalk. We are HUGE Jimmy Buffett fans! He is probably second only to Disney!

We printed personalized maps from Disney online and are putting them in the welcome bags. We are asking all our guests to get their pictures made in front of certain rides, etc. in each park. With the diverse group that we have (teens, older folks, parents of small kids, single ladies, etc) we realize that it would be hard for everyone to try and do these as group pictures. So after they send us their pics back, we'll put them all together in our scrapbook.

Other than that, I'm not really sure about activities. We are still debating things, and will let you know as the big day approaches!
Just talking about it....I am getting so excited!

Dresssorry it's small)



Shoes! My mom and I have been fighting nonstop over these. She insists that I cant wear converse with a princess dress. But, I refuse to have tired, sore feet, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes!!





Cake topper: sorry it's so blurry.

WE HAVE ALMOST THE SAME SHOES!!!!!!!!!! I just love them. The moment I saw them I had to have them!!
Trust me, everyone I know looks at me strange when I tell them about the shoes or show them. But, its our wedding, we should be comfortable!!!
Your dress looks pretty
And the cake topper is lovely!!!!!

....and speaking of colors, I have been debating for the longest time on what color palette to choose. Right now, I am leaning toward teal and brown with purple accents. Kind of a peacock/paisley idea. what do you guys think?

Loving everything! The new cake topper is too cute!

The ideas for colours are nice... I have even seen somewhere (or it could have been a work mates wedding photos) they had on their tables... the place settings and the napkins folded in the middle of the plates... and lying in the middle was a peacock feather... I know its only a small thing... but wouuld make a lovely impact!
