Yep, you certainly can bring your own flowers!! That's the great thing about Swan weddings You can just get the base ceremony, planner and location, and customize whatever else you want, such as different vendors, DIY anything you'd like, etc.
So basically, if you find something cheaper or want to just make your own things, you absolutely can
P.S. I'm doing daisies as well. I love them. So pretty!
Good luck!!

Wow that's high. Where these disc prices so high because you aren't purchasing the printed photo packages at all? I think the $300 was in addition to the portrait session prices. i got the prices in Jan 2011, can't believe things changed that much in just a few months.

Really! Just two months ago! Typical Disney.

We asked if the prints could be given up for a better price on the CD and were told no, so the prices they gave me were just to add the CD.

Oh, and to answer Kristi's question, we aren't staying at the Swan either. We're all going to be at BLT on DVC points.

We are getting married at the Swan in December!! We are staying at the Swan on the night before the ceremony, to make life much easier on ourselves! The caterer was able to get us a free room upgrade (not sure what it is yet, but I'm hoping for a theme park view!!!). We've never stayed at the Swan before, but we are excited. It looks lovely & the beds are supposed to be really comfy! We are moving to the WL on our wedding night

Yay! We are staying the night before and the night of! We need to book this asap! I wasn't sure if there were any specials going on or anything to look for! It seems like they would/should offer a discount to couples getting married there. I think there's something where they do if you have a reception, but that wouldn't be us.
But we are very excited about staying there! Haven't before

We are really excited to stay there too~the beds are supposed to be super comfy!!! If you want a really special room, I just talked to our caterer today and she said you can book a theme park view room of the World Showcase at the Dolphin!!! Be sure to have them note on your reservation that it's your wedding to see if they will offer you any special discounts or free upgrades when you get there-can't hurt, right?

Ooh, that's a great time of year to be there!! We are getting married 6 days before Christmas, so we are staying for our honeymoon until the 26th. Our Christmas dinner will be at the California Grill It's going to be an insane week in the parks, but I think it will be fun

Am I the only Swan bride who is doing a full catered reception in one of the Swan ballrooms or is there anyone else?

I was just peeking through the posts... and saw this! Now I am worried! I had hoped to do a Swan wedding (someday-) with a DP at Epcot for 50 guests! Disney says ALL guests have to stay on property to come to the DP? Or is there a mnimum that irishthemepark's 13 guests do not meet? Any info on this would be appreciated!

We are doing a DP in Epcot ans most of our guests are staying at the S/D. Some are staying at a WDW resort, and at least 5 guests are staying off-property. We do not have any penalties for the off-property guests and actually, the event planner didn't even ask where our guests were staying. We are having about 60 guests~not sure if that makes a difference. HTH!
