We Got Our Date!
So I don't have a huge update, but there are a few little wedding updates.
We got our date and locations from Disney! We are getting married on July 22, 2013! We haven't signed the contract yet, but I assume barring on any acts of God it's pretty much a lock. We also got our room block info package, which is even more intimidating than I expected it to be.
Next we have put in requests to rent DVC points for our own hotel accommodations before the wedding. DF and his Best Man will share a room before the wedding (Boardwalk studio), which should save us around $300-$400. My parents are going to rent a two-bedroom suite at the Boardwalk for them, me and my two Maids of Honour. It doesn't really save us much money (besides the fact that my parents have agreed to pay for it, instead of DF and I) but having the extra space to get ready on the wedding day will be nice, and we will use it for our little meet-and-greet party on Sunday afternoon, the day before the wedding. I'm pretty excited about solving that dilemma!
Lastly, we signed the contract and sent in the deposit for the venue for at-home reception. Our contact still hadn't got back to us, and only sent the contract to our house after badgering from us again (to which she said, "oh but I sent it last week." Post mark of course confirms she sent it that day.) My dad received it and opened the contract while we were away, and it needed to be returned (signed and fees) on the day we were supposed to return home from our trip. I asked my dad if he could try anything to make it work out so that we wouldn't lose yet ANOTHER date. He called her, got through on the first time (DF called her a good 5-6 times and she was NEVER there) and got us an extension, like it was nothing. Maybe she finally realized she wasn't being very professional in her dealings with us. Sigh.
Anyway, long story short we got it. And now we have a meeting with the caterer on Thursday. It's all finally coming together!
And only EIGHT DAYS until we go to Disney, meet our consultant and have our site visit! I cannot wait!
