Your timeline looks great. I so want to get married at Swan Boat Landing. With the photos before the ceremony is that just you seperate from DH or does it include him? I am trying to convince DBF that if we get married at MK it'll save us money because we won't need a MK photo shoot or much decorations plus I can't get Cinderella's Coach LOL. He doesn't really care but refuses to see me until the ceremony and gosh damn it I want photos and the castle LOL.
I leave this saturday.. Manny & I are taking photos together before the ceremony.. I hope u get it!

I don't even know how I stumbled over to the wedding board but I'm glad I did because I can't wait to see the finished report and all of your pictures. My dd is only 15 but someday hopes to get married at MK too. I hope you have a beautiful day and night you deserve it!!
Awww thanks hun! I hope she gets to have her magical day one day!

I decided that i wanted some pictures on the table for a little extra decor.. I got one long roman table for the reception & rented 4 five feet tall crystal wedding trees to go down the center as centerpieces.. here are pics to refresh your memory-







So i bought 5 picture frames in black that says live-love-laugh, a can of white spray paint, blue glitter paint, glitter card stock, & disney stickers (all either on sale or with coupons of course! ) & then got wedding pictures of when we first got married & put it all together...










this says- once upon a wedding...










This one says- and they live happily ever after... in this pic u cant really see it but in person u can..









this says- dreams do come true...









this says- wishes do come true...








this says- once upon a time...


they will go in between each of the crystals trees


Oh & by the way I CHANGE MY CAKE!! Manny said why are we getting a cake that feeds 50 people & we are having less than 20 guests... Do u think u could of told me how u felt BEFORE i ordered it! MEN i tell ya! I even showed him the cake before i ordered it.. Just to refresh your memories i ordered a 2 tier mad hatter cake.. Well now the baker & I are trying a design HE HAS NEVER DONE BEFORE He doesnt even have a picture to show me for reference .. U know what I am just going to have to trust that it will turn out just fab...

His suggestion was a round 10”, not as tall as their usual tier height. The cake would be done to look like a drum pillow, with a large white chocolate Cinderella slipper on top. The cake would serve at least 12. Cinderella blue fondant with the decorators choice of additional décor to compliment.. Price for the cake as described above, $185.00... about 6 Cupcakes iced in blue with Cinderella décor on top, i.e. carriage, tiny slipper, castle...







He obviously had done the cupcakes before but not the drum pillow with everything together.. He also said that the slipper is not the size of the cinderella slipper dessert they normally serve, that it will be much larger than that..
I also wanted a fancy looking cupcake stand & for them to kind of set the cakes out like this-







I want the castle cake on top..
I had purchased the crystal toppers & crystal bands to go around each layer of the mad hatter cake when i was going to get it... so now i want them to use the crystals to BLING the crap out of the cake/cupcakes! They are going to spray the shoe a shimmery silver to try to match my shoes that day, I hope they have enough SHIMMER! The cost for the whole cake idea about $360... I save about $90 compared to the $450 the 2 tier mad hatter cake cost.. SO THATS A BONUS IN MY BOOK!!

They said they are going to try to keep the cake a cinderella theme to try & match my decor.. It's funny because I didn't even have a theme for this event & it just so happens that everything is similar to cinderella's theme.. I have seen disney cakes & I believe it will come out nice.. Just thought i would share with u guys...



I had a phone conversation with disney's videographers & come to find out there will be THREE videographers that day!!! It just keeps getting better & better!

Peace out

Those blue centerpieces are amazing! I really love the way tall pieces like that can open up a room.

I'm so amazed with your crafting skills, those picture frames are fantastic! It is so romantic to tie it in with pics from your wedding too. Great idea.

I'm all about saving some bucks on the cake, it sounds like it's going to be fantastic!

It's all coming so fast!

Your frames look GORGEOUS! You totally raided the sticker section of Michael's!!! (I have a lot of those stickers in my scrapbook, and the ones I don't have I coveted!)

I'm really looking forward to seeing pictures of this cake. It sounds sooo pretty. I love Cinderella stuff.

And WOW! Three videographers, that's awesome.
