Victoria, i've just loved reading through this and seeing your beautiful photos. You look AMAZING And I love the colour of your bridesmaids dresses they are just gorgeous. Everything is just so elegant and lovely from the flowers to the tables, the vows, boat ride - you worked so hard to have a perfectly magical day and you pulled it off beautifully

And what a lovely song to dance to with your dad, made my eyes water

what a fantastic trip report. Your wedding is beautiful and I'm just about to turn into a pushy parent and force my kids to get married there when the time comes

Don't know how you made the choices for food and cake must have been so hard and although your dress is beautiful for me your bouquet wins hands down - never seen such beautiful flowers

Hi everyone!

Sorry for my silence! I'm not the best with long TRs!! And work has been hectic. AND we've booked a trip to Disneyland Paris, so I'm being a little obsessed planning that.

But I have to finish this TR especially since today is our First Anniversary and I've still not bleedin' done it!

I want to start my DLRP PTR too - but I'm making myself finish this first.

I'm busy celebrating today, but will finish the wedding day tomorrow and then fill you in on a few honeymoon bits.

It was a super long trip, and we went to a Disney park every day for the 17 after the wedding, so they all blend together a bit, so I might jsut share some photos and bits of the end of the trip as it'll get a bt boring and I'll gete a bit forgetful I think.

Anyway, I hope I've not lost you all.

Will update tomorrow - I promise!!

Once the boats docked back the the Floridian marina, it was almost time for our dessert party.

This was meant to be a Sago Cay Point (just down from the Marina, close to the water, but there was more than a 50% chance of rain, so we weren't allowed the food served outside, so we had it back at the Whitehall room where the rest of the reception had happened.

it's a pretty space, but it meant that my glowing light theme didn't really glow as much as it would have if the party had been in the right location, as there were a lot of lights in the Whitehall.

Glow cube decorations, not glowing as much!



Never mind, the food was all very yummy!

Here are some photos of the DP:

Jack's much requested cheesecake lollipops:



My much requested Mickey Oreo treats:



Cake for dipping in the chocolate fountain:



Me dipping said cake! Lol. I was so scared I'd get chocolate all down my dress!



After we all enjoyed some treats I heard some familiar Music pipe up and got a bit excited. Katie and Hayley heard it too and knew it was the Electric Water Pageant. So we sprinted (as well as we could in our big dresses) to the Marina (luckily there's a shortcut from the convention center) and caught the end of the parade.

It was our one bit of wedding craziness, the three of us must have been a funny sight!!

Then it was almost time for Wishes.....and the end of our magical day!!

Wow! What a wonderful update.

I love your glow cube decorations. They still looked lovely even if they did not have a effect you imagined.

The food looks amazing right from the cheesecake lollipops (which is an amazing idea btw) and the oreo treats. Fabulous.

For our Dessert Party we should have watched Wishes from where the food was served, but from Whitehall the Monorail and plants obstructs to view a little, so I asked our planner to set up some chairs at Sago Cay, even though we wouldn't be eating there. As the view is just so much better, and I love Wishes.

So a few minutes before Wishes time we all walked out to the Marina, everyone had a seat and Jack and I stood at the front to have photos during the show.

These were some of our favourite photos of the whole day! So I was very glad we chose to have our photographers with us for the entire day.



















And then that was it......my wedding was over!

People warn you it's going to go by fast.....but honestly, they should warn you more! And ours was a long day!

We headed back to the Whitehall room, said our goodbyes to everyone and then everyone went their separate ways.

And this is where the evening got a little weird!

Jack went with Dave and Karen to my parents room, so Dave could change out of his tux and leave it at the Floridian so the suits could all be picked up in the morning.

So while that was happening, Katie, Hayley, their parents and I carried all the gifts, cards, decorations that I wanted to keep and the remaining cake up to my room.

With some persuasion we managed to get the top tier of the cake into the tiny Floridian fridge, and as Jack hadn't re-appeared the Parker family stayed with me a bit and we watched the 11pm showing of the Magic, Memories and You show from my balcony.

After that I said goodnight to the Parkers and wished them a lovely rest of their trip, as I was sure Jack would be back any second.

I tidied the room up a bit (as it had become quite a mess when we were all getting ready in it that morning) and he still hadn't come back.

In my dress there was pretty much nothing I could do for myself! I really wanted a bath, but I couldn't undo my dress by myself.

I thought about walking along to Mum and Dad's room, but the thought of walking around a quiet hotel at nearly midnight, by myself, in a wedding dress seemed a little odd!

Luckily not long after that Jack returned and I was finally able to have a bath, and spend about 20 minutes getting what felt like 500 pins out of my hair!!

Jack and I had talked so much about whether we'd be able to sleep that night. We couldn't decide if we'd just pass out, or if we'd be awake for hours with everything rushing through our brains too excited to sleep.

It turned out after a bath and snuggling down in that huge bed we had absolutely no trouble getting to sleep!
