Gisselle & Jose: June 24th, 2012 <3

Hi everyone!

I have been posting here and there on the boards since January (a few days after getting engaged and decided Disney was the place)... but really hadn't had the chance to start my own PJ... I am home sick today SO I figured -what the heck- why not start?! LOL

First things first I guess...

* How we met- Jose and I met Freshman year of HS. We were in the same homeroom and started talking during a group project... he was a slacker and I spoke my mind so needless to say it wasn't really love at first sight for us. LOL. He really just began to poke fun at me (I guess his immature way of telling me he liked me) BUT transferred out of the school a few weeks later. He ended up going to the school that all of my cousins went to, and how fate will have it became best of friends with my cousin (male). We started hanging out A LOT summer before Junior year, and were officially a couple when homecoming came around... and it must be mentioned that homecoming game was between both of our highschools, and WE won.

* The proposal- We usually go to Orlando for the holidays, and this year it was no different. I really wouldn't have expected it since he had mentioned he never really wanted to get married (he said a paper didn't mean he loved me more WHATEVERR) BUT he had been making really strange comments and that made me suspicious... turns out I was still surprised when he did whip that baby out! Oh, it was in Epcot on New Years... when the clock stroke midnight. Not too creative, but beautiful nonetheless.

* Why Disney- Our first vacation together was to Disney, and as annual passholders we go very often. We love it, so why not? I also pushed for it because we would of had to invite TOO many people to a wedding closer to home, eventhough we still ended up with an 80 person guest list!!!

* Location/Ceremony/Theme- Originally we wanted Morocco, since we had dinner there the night we got engaged and I absolutely love Aladdin... but after finding out how complicated it would actually be for us, we decided to go for SBP. I really liked it, and felt like it was more "us" and I liked the idea of using ADH even more. I started doing some research and found the cutest vintage carnival themed wedding pics that I fell in love with, I knew that is what I wanted.




So we are officially having a -vintage carnival- themed wedding at SBP at 10:00am following by our reception at ADH!

Welcome, and congratulations!! I think your proposal story is really sweet. And I love the Carnival themed wedding! Those pictures are too cute. Any idea what colors you are considering yet? I think you have a lot of options for colors that go with a Carnival theme!

Thanks!!!

Library geek- No, I am not wearing that one exactly. They didn't have the one I ordered in stock. That one is a litle bulky for my liking and the fact that they didnt position it right, it made it look funky. It is similar though, but smaller.

Sw33t_angel- Thank you!!!!!!!

More details...

I feel like I am all over the place since I started doing wedding things before actually starting my PJ... I forgot to post a few things.

Ring: How could I have possibly forgetten the ring?!?



Wedding colors: We are going with a tealish/blue color, red and hints of cotton candy pink. I know they seem a bit odd, but I loved how they came together in my inspiration pics, somehow they work! I added my rendition on paint below...



Also, thanks to the boards I got the marvelous idea of sending out a newsletter (really, I have to give you ladies ALL the credit because the idea had not crossed my mind)... I created it on word & I was very pleased. I think it really fit our theme nicely... we sent them out (and by we I mean me of course in red envelopes I found at Office Depot at 6$ for 50 of them. Please excuse the crappy picture though, I had forgotten to take one and had to take it of an already folded one with my cell. Anyways, here it is-



I am working on the next "edition" to send out!

Bridesmaids

While I am at it, I have also accomplished a lot with my bridesmaids!

I sent them "will you be my bridesmaid cards" (also a dis boards idea ) which I got on Etsy...



They were a big hit!!! I started off with 6 girls, and at the last minute decided to add another girl (my cousins long term gf, who after 7 years has grown on me), DF really wanted to add one of his good friends too so it made sense. HOWEVER, one of my original girls, I had had a falling out with and was starting to make a mends... I really wanted her to be a bridesmaid because before the issue we were very, very close... I figured I was going to forget the whole thing and give our friendship another chance... she seemed so happy when she got her card in the mail, but has been seeming very un-interested since then.. I set up an appt. to go bm dress hunting and she was planning to go to Disney that weekend, so of course I was happy for her and told her she can go with me another day (since all of the other girls had already rearranged their schedules for that day) turns out the week of she cancels her trip and thrilled I told her "great, so you can come Saturday?" only to get a response of "Lol I guess, if I don't find anything better to do". THAT HURT! I didn't bother texting her or calling and she never showed up! She text me at 4:00pm (when the appt was for 12:00pm) saying she overslept because she was partying the whole night... and didn't even mention rescheduling. I feel like I don't really want her to be a part of the wedding party anymore... but am unsure if I should give her another chance? Especially since DF has 7 groomsmen!

But enough about that I am already starting to feel flustered, here is a pic of my 6 girls who DID show up...



I had originally told them to choose their own dresses, but they all chose the same one (don't pay any mind to the colors, that is what they had available in their sizes) it will be the tealish/ blue color which David's Bridal refers to as Malibu. Oh, and the girl in the middle with the rouched (sp?) skirt is my MOH.. she wanted to look a little different, which was fine by me so we went with a similar style with a diff. skirt.
