So I have to pop in and confirm that this morning my DF and I ordered the champagne glasses that were found by DoomBuggy092. Thank you so much for finding those again, they are exactly what I was looking for! I can't believe they're called Casablanca champagne glasses and everything, so amazing!

Here's a picture, because after all, they're going to be mine pretty soon!




Here's looking at you kid.

They are a set of four, so we are definitely going to be using these as our toasting glasses and as soon as I get my cake topper, I'll be testing out all kinds of arrangements to see if it will also work the way I envision it. I'm so happy and excited!

I'm going to probably look into getting them engraved or etched or something with our names and date. This is like my first official wedding purchase... It really feels like this is happening now!

I am so glad I could help! They are quite classy and I love them My MOH and I have decided that I should major in online shopping. Congratulations on making your first wedding purchase!

Thank you again so much! You are definitely talented at online searching, I swear I looked online so much before and I couldn't find anything! I need to definitely work on my own online shopping skills!

Thank you! Your wedding plans sound super fun too, I also love Star Wars!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So I feel like I finally get to come back on after a two week, or so, hiatus. It has been a very rough last few weeks. I'm not sure if I mentioned this explicitly, but I am away at school in another province, so my DF (and the rest of my family) are all back home in Ontario, and I'm out in Nova Scotia. Two weekends ago I was busy visiting home to attend DF's cousin's wedding. It was really beautiful and sweet, and I think there were a couple things they did that I definitely want to add to my wedding now! (As a side note, one thing I loved was they had named their tables after places they'd visited together, and of course they had a Disney World table!)

The weekend that just passed my DF came out to visit me. It was/is Canadian Thanksgiving, and I was stuck at school working on a play , so he came to spend time with me since I couldn't leave! Unfortunately he left a couple hours ago, so I'm back to feeling a little down. Thank goodness for the DIS!

Anyway, my champagne glasses arrived and they look lovely. Technically I haven't seen them in person, because they're at DF's house, but I'm going to have him send me a photo later on! So exciting!

I'm working on another update, which I hope I can manage to get up today before jumping back into another busy week!

Invitations and Save-the-Date Ideas, and Wedding Colour Palette

There are not a ton of opportunities for do-it-yourself projects in a totally in-park wedding at Disney, unfortunately. One big one that I can definitely work on, however, is the invitations.

Iíve actually gone back and forth a lot about what I want these to look like and what I think I need them to convey to our guests. Obviously there is a lot more information that needs to be given for a destination wedding, and arguably, yet more for a Disney World wedding. So I kept going back and forth between:

1. Very informative invitations and no STD/simple STD
2. More informative save the dates and a simple formal invitation
3. Simple formal STDs and invitations, and informative newsletters

So many combinations, so many options. I think my DF and I have finally decided to go with simple STDs sent out very early, invitations around the one-year mark once everything is confirmed with DFTW, and then newsletters as necessary to fill in any gaps.

Save-the-Dates:
For our save the dates, were going to do a simple card with ourselves as Disney caricatures, the date and of course, that it will be at WDW. My DF is working on putting these together, and I actually havenít seen any of the work he has done on them yet. But Iíve been pushing him to send me more regular updates. :P

Invitations:
Now, back to the invitations. While looking at invitation ideas on the internet I found a couple amazing links to ďbookĒ style invitations Ė handmade and bound books that include all the details. I really, really loved the idea the instant I saw them. They are of course a lot of work, and probably not the most cost effective invitation out there, but it would a huge project that my DF and I thought could take a very long time in those early months of waiting for some actual planning to begin.




Source: http://ohsobeautifulpaper.com/2011/0...g-invitations/




Source: http://www.merrimentdesign.com/smyth...ation-book.php

What I am hoping to achieve from this project is a little hard cover bound book, with all the details about how we met and got engaged, the formal details and schedule, and then a few basic ideas about travel and expenses, that way all the info would be in one convenient location, and hopefully it would be harder to misplace a whole book than a single invitation card. I can hope anyway!

Also, I was thinking there are a couple of people who I already know wonít be attending the wedding who might actually like to have something like this as a keepsake (my grandmother, for example, who defintely can't travel the distance). Anyway, weíre going to be making one invitation book per household, which we feel will be a manageable enough number.

At this point Iím writing most of the text for the invitation and DF is doing most of the graphics, but Iím hoping we can trade off on that a little too. And even though I thought I said I was against a logo/monogram, it was the first thing DF started to come up with. And itís super cute, so itís okay. (Iíll post these later on.)

And lastly, just to contribute something that Iíve actually done, hereís the colour palette that weíve decided weíre going with for our wedding! Yay!

OMG! I love those invitations! I wish I had thought to done something like that--- too late now! But they are PERFECT!

I like the color inspiration a lot too! Nice!

And I'm sorry you're missing DF. I live far away from my family too (I moved to Wisconsin from Connecticut last year)--- but I kind of like it. Hope you feel better!

I know, I really love those invites. I just hope I can do them as well as (or perhaps even half as well as) the ones I posted.

I don't mind being away from my family too, too much, it's very nice to feel independent , but I could do with seeing my DF a few more times... more than once a month would be nice, but unfortunately too expensive, especially with airfare prices. Oh well!

Thank you! I used photoshop to put together my colour palette, but there were a few websites I visited before I started putting it together:

http://www.degraeve.com/color-palette/
