bellaminnie, thank you SO much for posting that!

I do have a question ... the high-res CD is listed for $300 but is only mentioned about the resort photo sessions ... do you think that applies to the park sessions as well?

Oh, that's good news!! I would definitely want the CD so we could include the photos in a photobook!

Amy sweetie - it is lovely to see you over here on the S/D board, but do tell me, are you thinking of switching? I know that you are having a stressful time with your planning at the moment!!

We are giving it serious thought ... we are so very disenchanted with DFTW right now, but I don't know that I can let go of the MK shoot (plus I'd hate to forfeit our deposit with DFTW). We are basically exploring alternatives now (and I ADORE the ceremony locations at the Swan), but I'm so hung up on the MK shoot that we'll probably end up sticking with Disney.

I understand. Isn't it funny how we brides (and VR brides) are all so different and unique!! In all my planning (even when I was going for the Escape package with DFTW), the MK shoot was just not high on my list of priorities. In fact, it wasn't even a consideration. I must say, I am grateful that it is not important to me, when you hear all the problems (quality, timing changes, rudeness etc) I am glad I did not consider it.
Good luck sweetie - I hope it all works out for the best, whatever is decided!!

Thanks Joanne!

I figure that really, truly as long as I'm there with my honey and my family, that's all that really matters!

Are the prices they set for options in the Swan and Dolphin weddings set in stone? Or do they grant a little leeway? I am interested in having a floral bouquet but something really simple and not so extravagant. Would it still be at least 100 dollars? Does anyone know?

Just as a follow-up to this, we received this info in an email from DPS today:

"We offer two types of discs with a copyright release for a bridal portrait session: Archival (can print up to 30x40) for $950 or a High res (can print up to 8x10) for $750"

The prices are certainly not set in stone - that is one of the appealing things about S/D weddings/VRs!!! I started with the bare bones minimum package and added what I wanted and left out what I didn't!! I had very definite ideas about what I needed as regards floral, and although I have taken Karen's advice regarding which florist to chose (I trust her implicitly!!!), I certainly gave very direct instructions on what I wanted!!! I am having a larger cascade bouquet, so it is quite expensive. I am sure that you can have whatever you want. Just drop Karen an e-mail!!! Just a heads up though, wedding flowers are expensive and $100.00 is really not an unusual amount - even for a simple hand tied bridal posy!!! Good luck and let us know how you get on!!

I know they tend to be expensive, it just upsets me lol. One of my favorite flowers are gerbera daisies. I can by three sets of like 8 organically grown perfect geberas from whole foods for 10 dollars a piece and my cost would be only 30 plus whatever ribbon I wanted. The markup on things is just pretty much disgusting.

I am sure you would be allowed to provide your own bouquet if that's what you wish to do!!!
The mark ups are high in the wedding industry for sure!!!

You can absolutely bring your own flowers, that is what I am doing. Gerber daisies last forever. I have some growing in my back yard and I clipped a few and put them in a vase of water about 2 weeks ago and they still look the same as they did when I first clipped them. If you wanted to buy your own and just bundle them together with a pretty ribbon the night before you could probably save a small fortune. I'm leaning towards fake flowers myself, flowers are pretty but not super important to me so I'm going to get some pretty silk ones from Michaels and make a small bouquet to carry.
