budget headache!

Ive tried to work out a rough budget, based on an estimate of 30 guests and sticking to the minimum and ive managed to do it without the MK photoshoot (ill add this last minute if theres a slot and room in the budget) and without a dessert party- as lovely as it would be cant justify spending so much on dessert and a party that lasts an hour! so im trying to think of something else for the evening! ideas so far- either having a 5pm ceremony so the cocktail hour and reception will finish late ish and leave it at that! or as i love love love pat obriens duelling piano bar at city walk, im thinking jellyrolls! will we stick out like a sore thumb in bridal wear though? has anyone any other ideas of places to go after the reception? i wish disney let you have longer than a 4 hour reception so i could have a private evening celebration but i guess thats what dessert parties are for

Hey! I've been to Jellyrolls tons and tons of times and several times I've seen bridal parties! In fact, that is ideally what I wanted to do after my wedding, but we scheduled only 5 months outs so we only had a 7:30 slot available and it was too late to go. But I say do it!

No updates as yet, I've purchased my table numbers and they are fab, pics to follow but that's it really on the wedding front. However we have just returned from 2 amazing weeks at Disney world, last trip before the wedding only 23 months to go lol I will upload some pics when I get a minute. We arrived late afternoon at Saratoga Springs after a bumpy 9 hour flight to find that Disney had upgraded us from a studio to a 1 bed villa in celebration of our 4 year anniversary couldn't believe it, the room was amazing and made the start of the trip so magical (however we've now had to add another £1500 to the wedding budget so we can afford to book a 1 bed villa for our 3 week stay in sept 2014 damn you Disney lol)

Anyway we had a fun filled vacation, we had the dining plan so had some of the best food ever! Highlights include jiko, yachtsman steakhouse twice, nine dragons, rose and crown, t-Rex (I loved this place, cheesy theming but so much fun, loving the cotton candy cocktails). Managed to visit every Disney park and get pics with characters I haven't seen before especially at MNSSHP (well worth queuing up at 6 for a pic with the dwarves and me dressed as snow white), some great days at downtown Disney, couple of trips to universal (Disney really needs to create a new ride that matches how freakin brilliant the Harry Potter ride is, seriously not a HP fan at all but that ride is just wow!), nights out down city walk in my favourite cocktail bar pat o briens, a trip to Halloween Horror Nights (scared the hell out of me, dean loved it), visits to sea world, Busch gardens and the malls squeezed in as well, plus dinner a few times at the cheesecake factory yum yum

only negative i can pick up and its only a minor thing as the amazing disney staff resolved it straight away for us, was a few of the resteraunts where we had appetisers or alcohol that weren't included in the dining plan, were charged to our room despite us telling them we were paying cash and giving the check to the waiters with the cash and telling them it was to cover any extras we ran up and tip, so when we checked out we had a bill for resteraunts we'd already paid for! Luckily the reception staff sorted this for us and cancelled the charges and I'm hoping it was genuine mistakes by the resteraunts and not a sneaky way to get extra tips, but anyway next time if we are on the dining plan we will not give a credit card to reception so nothing can be charged to our room by mistake

all in all though my fav visit ever to Disney and my honeymoon has a lot to live upto to top it haha so sad to be home I wish we lived in America only 6 months to go I guess until we can book our next visit and the real wedding planning can start

Vacation Pics to follow soon

I'm so excited!!! I've ordered my wedding dress woohoo!! it's one of the Alfred Angelo Disney range-Diamond Collection Cinderella Limited Edition dress! I went for style 228 the ballgown and yes i am getting it in glass slipper blue!!! i wanted it the minute i tried it on- i also loved dress 229 but the train was HUGE- no way could i have got that from the UK to Florida and back, it was so heavy! i'm so excited the dresses are only available until march so i just had to get it :D only thing is now i need a new colour scheme for the bridesmaids- electric blue completely clashes with my dress! i will still have it for the cake etc but the bridesmaid dresses and the ties are going to have to be a more subtle shade of blue like indigo! plenty of time for that, cant believe im almost at the 18 month mark :D

bouquet ideas now i have to change my colour scheme




idea for my bouquet- without the greenery and no white roses, also crystal mickeys instead of the butterfly- not sure whether it will go with the glass slipper blue in my dress so may have to just have the white daisies and crystal mickeys



this one for my bridesmaids- i think i want my flower girls to carry wands and wear fairy wings depending on what dress i put them in, also if my oldest flower girl attends, she will be nearly 8 and might not be into wings and wands lol

Aww thank you! It's pretty clear that I love blue so of course I love all your plans I was thinking about trying on the blue dress, but I just kept picturing a white one when I imagined my pictures. The blue dresses are stunning though. I love the flower wand...I think I may use either a wand or a Mickey head pomander for my little flower girl. It's not too far away, but I honestly can't wait to book. I feel like it will actually be real then! Love your pictures of your trip last year. Wizarding World of Harry Potter is such a fu experience!
