Can't wait to hear the rest of your day.
The little things like that are definitely what makes it Disney! It was pretty funny, our guests were a little confused lol.

Hi Ashley!

I don't know how you will pick out photos! You have SO many amazing ones. I have to say, I absolutely love the picture of you coming into the WP with your dad. I love that you have a big smile on your face and he is looking at you so sweetly!

Everything about your day was beautiful! I loved that the chef made you a turkey club! Thanks for sharing so many wonderful pictures!!

Lisa

I am really awful at keeping up with this now that the wedding is over and especially with the dis facebook group now!!!

The rest of the evening was just wonderful! After dinner we had the father daughter dance and mother son dance. I was really nervous about this but it was great. It turned out to be kind of relaxing. I never even noticed all the people staring at us. My Dad and I just took in the moment reminiscing about the ceremony.




After this Jeff and I attempted to make it around to all the tables but so many people were up walking around and hanging out else where in ADH that it was hard. I still feel awful because I don't think I talked to everyone. Everything went by so fast and I got caught up totally enjoying myself instead of thinkng about my guests! Oops. DH says we talked to everyone and that I need to stop worrying so hopefully he was right. After this we danced for hours and I don't ever dance!! I was just so caught up in the moment that I didn't care what anyone else thought. I was having the time of my life. The DJ was doing an awesome job mixing in some country music for all us country lovers. We of coursed did the cotton eye joe which was so funny especially in a wedding gown! I wasn't sure how many people would actually be dancing since we didn't have a lot of friends there but we couldn't get people off the dance floor. Aunts and Uncles I would never have expected where out there enjoying themselves. It was so great to see everyone having such a good time. I remember thinking several times throughout the night how I didn't want the night to end.







Then there was the cake cutting some time in between all the dancing. Another perfect moment We cut the cake to the Wishes exit song at Magic Kingdom. I had to get that song in the wedding somewhere! I really wanted to smash cake in DH's face but Disney gives you these tiny pieces to feed each other so I had to be nice We both were just lost in the moment. It was such an amazing feeling to be looking at my husband as we cut our wedding cake in Disney. Cake was then served to our guests. DH and I never ate a piece, I guess we were too busy!



The night was quickly coming to an end. Dh and I were called out onto the dance floor for the final song of the night. We danced to Promises from EPCOT. It was a perfect song to end a perfect night. All of our guests circled around us as we danced our last dance. I had tears in my eyes, I felt so emotional. I couldn't believe the day I had dreamed about for so long was over. It was truly the best day of my life. It was such a bittersweet moment; enjoying an amazing last dance with my husband but knowing that the day I had planning for so long was now over.


We said goodbye to each of our guests as they left and then talked to our planner and photographers for a few and thanked them tremendously for everything! They were truly amazing. We then met some people at the brewery for drinks. I had been drinking throughout the day but never felt drunk until we got there. People we didnt even know where buying DH and I shots. Our wedding group pretty much took over the place. It was fun but we decided it was time to go back and change and I was a feeling quite tipsy. We needed to get some food before doing anything else since we didn't eat much throughout the day. The plan was to meet everyone at Jelly Rolls later. That didn't quite happen. We walked the Boardwalk in our wedding attire and got a hotdog and then went to our room where we realized we didn't have keys to get in!! We trudged back down the long hallway to the lobby in my wedding gear! It was pretty funny, the lady behind the counter was laughing at us but was awesome and printed us new cards and even put my new last name on mine!! Finally about 11pm after being up for almost 24 hours we were back in our room. I really had high hopes of going back out but I was just so exhausted. It was like all of a sudden not sleeping just hit me. We decided to just go to bed and call it night. I was pretty disappointed the next morning that we didn't go out and I still kind of am but nothing I can do now

Big bump... just read your PJ and TR in it's entirety! Loved your wedding, so beautiful and incorporating many of the things I want in my wedding!

A few questions...

How did you do seating in ADH? How many tables did you add to the dance floor? Were your guests split up between those and the existing tables? Did you assign seats, or did you do more of an open seating concept?

Also, maybe I'm missing something, but looking at your BEO, I didn't see the DJ on there- how much did that cost?

Thanks!

Thank you!!! It was such an amazing day, you are going to have a wonderful day. It is so exciting to go through the planning process but can get a little stressful with all the decisions. I have so many more pictures I could show you. I didn't have all my professional wedding photos when did my report and I didn't do a good job finishing it up!!! You will absolutely love ADH! It was the best decision. You are basically renting a night club. Our guests were amazed.

So we had 6 round tables of 8-10 people on the dance floor plus a head table of 11. We had to use 3 of the smaller round tables on the outside of the dance floor as well. I was not to pleased with this idea and neither was my parents. We debated on paying the $2500 removal fee of all the tables and putting everyone off the dance floor but our planner told us they have never had anyone do that so we decided it wasn't worth the money. It actually turned out fine and would not worry about this! We put my friends at these tables since they are young and I knew wouldn't care. We did assign seats. I wasn't a big fan of open seating I wanted to make sure everyone who knew each other were put together.

Sorry about the DJ not sure why it wasn't on there. It was $2800 but thats because it was december and they charge double I believe for that month.

Please feel free me to ask me any questions you have! I would love to help out. I miss all the wedding planning

Here's a few pictures of our tables and the dancing so you can sort of see the space. If you do a sight visit or see pictures with all the tables it makes the dance space seem really small but there was plenty of space!

I somehow missed your last update. I was the same on my wedding day. We had our DP and then hoped to go and see the midnight firework rehearsal for NY but I was just too tired. When I saw them the next night I kicked myself as they were so good I wanted to see them again.
