Just Engaged in Be Our Guest!

So excited to be joining in on these boards

After 8 years together my DBF surprised me by proposing on December 21st in Be Our Guest on our Christmas trip! It was super romantic and the Magic Kingdom's General Restaurant Manager came to tell us that we were the first couple to get engaged there as it had only been open a week or so - so we have our own little bit of Disney history!

Now that we are back from our trip I am thrilled to be planning a Disney Wedding for Spring/Summer 2014 so any tips from other UK brides will be much appreciated for how you got on organising your wedding from afar, and can't wait to look at lots of other weddings to get ideas

Hi everyone! Thanks

So excited to be planning along with you. We are just about to relocate to Yorkshire with work and as soon as work is settled we will be trying to set a date with Disney. So far I'm hoping for an Escape wedding - Sea Breeze Point and a dinner at Cali Grill would be my dream! I always thought I'd want a Wedding Pavilion wedding but SBP looks so pretty and might be better suited to my smaller group?

We were engaged in front of Cinderella Castle on my birthday, December 13! Glad to know other 'Disney' couples! Once we have his family on board, we are going to book out Disney Fairytale Wedding! We are hoping for Fall.

I'm not from the UK, but I can't wait to plan along with you!

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

Good luck getting your Disney wedding - we had no trouble at all, I think everyone expected us to get married there eventually!
