I wish the disboards had a "like" button like Facebook! I want to like so many of your pics!
I love the david's bridal avatar - I'm not planning on having a wedding party, but I'd still like to play around on it! Thanks for the link!

I love the fall leaves with your names on them - I hope you kept them! (reading a PJ a bit at a time is more fun if you don't skip ahead to final decisions! )

I had never heard of brooch bouquets - they sound awesome! Ok. Back to more reading.

Although it was a little painful watching the balance go so far down, it's nice that its out of the way and we know about how much money we have left to help with the move!

Thanks! The David's Bridal planning site was pretty fun to play with!

We're not doing the leaves anymore...just because if we were to line the aisle with them, we would be responsible for picking them back up. Instead we're doing picture frames on every other pew (flowers will be on the ones without pictures)...my step-mom got the idea from Pinterest -

The brooch bouquet would've been neat...but the more I thought about it, I really wanted real flowers...so that idea got nixed too.

I was really excited when I learned about the unity cross. I heard about it from someone I know on another forum that is getting married this month.

Woo! Paying things off is an awesome feeling!

I love your earrings! And the pictures on the pews!

DIY Top Hat & Ears / Aisle Frames

We've spent the weekend making our own Mickey top hat and Mickey / Minnie ear headbands.

I fell in love with these two pictures I saw on Pinterest...




I also have really wanted the top hat ears for Thomas to wear during our rehearsal, but I can't justify paying $60+ for them on eBay...luckily, Halloween is right around the corner so finding a cheap top hat was pretty easy.

To make the ears, I followed the tutorial from this blog - http://www.thewallacefamilyblog.com/...nie-mouse.html
Except, instead of covering the headbands with felt, I just bought black headbands.

Thomas, hard at work cutting the black ribbon off his hat...


Cutting foam ears...


I found some orange polka-dot ribbon...but it turned out being too small. After hunting all over town...Jo Anns, Michaels, The Party Shop, Hobby Lobby, Target AND Walmart...I couldn't find any wider polka-dot ribbon...so I instead decided to make a different type of bow.

Didn't like this one too much....


Sold on this one!


Bows all done!


Ears for the gents...


Minnie ears!!




...and his top hat...I really like how it turned out!


I want to differentiate my Minnie ears from the ones the bridesmaids will wear...I'm just not sure how...any ideas??

__________________________________________________ _

I also finished our aisle pictures...it was pretty difficult for us to choose just ten pictures to use. These will go on every other pew...the additional pews will have flowers.


__________________________________________________ _

In other news...our wedding dance is finished. We both love it and I'm really hoping Randy captures some good pictures of it on wedding day!

Those ears look awesome! Great job!

Are you going to try to make bridal ears (white) or go with the classic ear look (black)? If classic, you could give yourself a white bow. Maybe with orange dots? For my DIY ears, my mom found a veil for $3 at our local thrift store. If you wanted to add a veil to yours maybe try scooping out one in your area for one?

Hi Lyndsay!

Love your Mickey Ears! Those are super cute, and will look fantastic in photos! I especially love the reference picture with Mickey Ears done in Bridesmaid style

I think the photo pew decorations are a really great idea also! I've been looking for simple, DIY type aisle decorations, and I think that may be a contender. I'm getting married on Castaway Cay at the end of the month, so it has to be a super easy decoration for DCL to be willing to do it.

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! My fiance suggested I do white ears...I really want the headband with the veil from Disney (not the hat one)...but haven't they discontinued the headband? I could make my own...but I really wanted the shiny sequined headband.

If I do make my own, I'm definitely going to take your suggestion of doing a white ribbon with orange polka dots...I just hope its not as difficult as it was to find the other ribbon!!

I wonder if the Bridesmaids inspired picture is from a DisBride? I really like it too!

I'm hoping the aisle photos will look good. Have you seen a picture of the pews that will be on the ship? If not, I'd see if you can get one to make sure you'll be able to secure the frames to the pew. I know we're going to have to tie them to the pews in the pavilion rather than hang them as they look in the pictures I found.

Yeah, those are gone too. You can still find them on ebay for around $20, which doesn't seem too bad. Apparently demand for them is not as high as the top hat. Just search disney bride headband.

My sister is currently a CM at WDW so she bought me a pair of damaged Bridal hat ears which I plan to cannibalize to make my headband ears. I just found out yesterday. I thought she was just getting me a hat so I could steal the ears, but now I don't need the veil my mom bought.

If you aren't able to find the right kind of fabric, you could always just get white and then some orange fabric paint to paint on your own dots!

Welcome Letter Finally Done!

I've been working on our welcome letter for guests all week and finally got the layout correct! Special thanks to Ashley (ash8716) for emailing me the letter she made which I used to make mine, just altering various details where needed. My step-mom found the paper on sale a few months ago and figured we could use it for something...it was really difficult getting the layout right where it didn't overlap the border!

**The colors are a little off due to my printer being low on ink...where it's pink, it should be dark orange...and the brown-ish text is actually dark green.

I like the wording! I might have to borrow some of it! How many in your group are staying at bonnet creek? I fell in love with it - it's the whole reason I bought into Wyndham.

A few sets of grandparents are staying there...not sure what their reason was. I can't take credit for all the wording...most of it was already there on the file that another DisBride shared with me. I can email it to you if you'd like...just PM me your email address.

Lyndsey,

The headbands were still available all over the resort in April. I am pretty sure you can still find them. I think they actually brought them back.

They had them in July too...I was mainly nervous because they aren't on the Disney Store's website. I didn't want to get down there and not have them. :-(
