A few small items arrived this week so I thought I'd share them with everyone

First up is the jewelry. I wanted to keep things very simple when it came to dressing up with jewelry (I'm not a big jewelry girl). I hate necklaces, so I'm just focusing on earrings and a bracelet (my wedding band and engagement ring will cap things off).

This is the bracelet I chose....a cyrstal embellished bangle (don't really like shapeless bracelets either)



So I wanted to incorporate something "Disney" into my wardrobe, and I found these simple earrings I just fell in love with. THe little crystal dangling Mickey ears are adorable.



I also received my shoes and purse!!! So excited for these shoes. I was taking a chance on pairing red shoes with my ivory dress, but I wanted to do something to spice up the look and make it less "bridal" since this is a renewal. I just love the finished product. (And, yes, I have huge feet)



And this is the purse I had dyed to match the shoes.



That's all for now folks.

Love the accessories! The shoes are going to look so sharp! And I adore that bracelet, that's exactly the kind of thing I want too.

I love that bracelet so much. It's gorgeous in person and really stands out. Glad you liked it.

BTW, there's a similar one available here

Well, where to begin. I suppose the most important change we've been forced to make is a date change. We've moved from April 2014 to January 2014

I am officially freaking out!

I was unaware that the State of Florida is conducting their FCAT testing in the schools the week before and after my original date. Of course, no one will pull their kids from school to attend during this time. So we re-scheduled the VR for January. No I have to contact ALL MY VENDORS () to change the dates (and pray that they aren't already scheduled on my new date).

I'll keep you posted on my progress. So far I've been successful with the luncheon at The Attic. I'm still waiting to hear from my planner about the Swan ceremony site, but I'm hopeful. The photog, videographer, make-up and officiant will have to wait until I lock in the date at the Swan.

As I said earlier in my post, OFFICIALLY FREAKING OUT!!!!!!

YES!!!!!! I GOT ALL MY DUCKS IN A ROW!!!!

ALL MY VENDORS WERE AVAILABLE FOR THE NEW DATE!!!!

Thank you baby jesus!!!!

I've already informed all my potential guests about the date change and half of my 50 guests have rsvp'd.

And it's also going to be a less expensive trip since we will now be visiting during value season.

Just need to change two small items I ordered with the old date on them and I'll be completely done.

Plus, the best thing to come out of this change.....WE GET TO HAVE OUR DESSERT PARTY AT EPCOT!!! My original date was blocked out because of spring break, but my new date in January is open so we're getting our dessert party at the UK Upper Terrace just as we originally wanted ( I really do love those damn umbrella tables )

Finally got word on the customized dessert party menu we requested. The chef priced it out for us, and it came out to less than what we had expected ($28.00 pp). YAY!

These are the desserts we asked for:


- tiramisu stemware
- warm apple crumble with granola streusel
- chocolate peanut butter marshmallow squares
- chocolate peanut butter cupcakes
- school bread (from Norway)
- assorted cookies

This also includes fruit punch and the coffee/teas station.

We're also having sodas and bottled waters to be billed on consumption.

YAY, YAY, YAY!!!! I loooooove me some school bread.

So I've started to tackle a few small DIY projects early on since I'm not too busy during the summer. My first project are these door hangers for our guests. I'll include them in their welcome bags. This is certainly not my idea. I borrowed it from a few brides here, mainly Beth's "Rockin Around the World" vow renewal which I loved so much.

This is the one I'm making for the guests:



And in keeping with the underlying Beauty and the Beast theme, I made this one for us:



I also received our sand ceremony set in the mail today. I'm so glad I went with this set. It's even more lovely in person. This is from the website:



We will have the center jar and 4 smaller vases (one for my husband, one for myself, and one for each of the boys) The colors we are using are red, gold, black and ivory.

So that's it for now.

Your dessert party menu sounds delicious! Love all the peanut butter chocolate goodies. I've never tried school bread, but it's at the top of my list, I've heard so many good things.

And I love your door hangers, especially the Beauty and the Beast door hanger. It's so perfect!

You definitely have to try the school bread. It's like heaven

The tiramisu sounds awesome! Probably just because I can never get enough of it though.

It's great that you were able to get everything you wanted for price you wanted.

So today was THE day. I sat down and calculated our overall budget for the vow renewal. Our budget sheet also includes our stay at Disney but doesn't include things like the dress, suit rental, favors, etc. Hope this will give some brides contemplating a Disney wedding an idea of what a Swan/Disney event combination would run them.

The ceremony total includes the site fee for Crescent Terrace at the Swan, florals, violinist and our wedding planner's fee. The luncheon and dessert party are based on a group of 25 guests, but this count could and probably will go up for us as we've invited 50 guests. The dessert party total also includes a $12.95pp viewing fee for all of us who do not have tickets for EPCOT.

My precious boys will be my "Chips". I received their outfits and they tried them on.

PERFECT FITS!!!

Between these two and my little "Belle" flower girls, I'm going to have the most adorable wedding party at our vow renewal.
