That's awesome!!

Hello Ladies

I am a soon to be Swan Bride! Just got our date approved for September 29th 2013 I am a little nervous, Erin is going to be our wedding planner and she says in September it rains like clockwork every afternoon. Of course the date is non- negotiable for us, since it's the only date we can actually get all of my brothers and sisters there. I planned for an elevan o'clock wedding to hopefully (knock on wood) not get rained on. My only real concern is having to do the ceremony inside. I mean the whole point of getting married in Disney is getting married outside, right? Were keeping the ceremony very intimate. Parents, brothers, sisters, neices, nephews and of course our daughter. Even with our exclusive list we have at least 25 guests. This is one of the reasons we chose the Swan. A WDW wedding over 20 guests is just too much money! Were also throwing a big reception for our extended family and friends when we get home. Disney themed of course. Love reading these threads and getting ideas. Does anyone have pictures of their wedding at the crescant terrace site? Thats the location we have the hotel holding.

Welcome!! Congrats on getting your date! Being a Swan bride is the BEST.

As far as rain and September, yes-- it rains in September. You will probably be okay at 11am.. most rain comes in the afternoon. Don't sweat it!

I am having my ceremony at Crescent Terrace. There are some pictures on my Planning Journal (link in my signature) on the first page or two. Also, Teresa (Icecoldpenguin) had her ceremony at Crescent Terrace and she has some shots in her Planning Journal as well. Jilian does too. In addition, there are some pictures of Crescent Terrace at the start of this thread (pages back!!).

Let us know if we can help at all; we are a very tight sisterhood!

PS. we're on Facebook if you'd like to join us-- loads of pictures there.

Welcome, Lilu!

Faith - You keep changing your avatar and confusing me! When I'm checking the dis on my phone, I can't see signatures and I'm more visual, so I just look at the picture of whoever is posting - I keep thinking "Who is this person? They're new! Is there a planning journal I haven't read!"

Speaking of - What is Shannon's username? And does she have a planning journal? I saw her pics on facebook and they are gorgeous!

Thanks for the warm welcome! Love seeing all the pictures. You have some great ideas, and congratulations with graduating in December! I have to wait until this May, but I will finally have my bachelors in Communication and Science Disorders

I KNOW! I'm so indecisive!!

Shannon does have a PJ but for the life of me I cannot remember what it is. I know she has posted in this thread and the link to her PJ is in her siggy.

Welcome Lilu!!!!
Looking forward to hearing all your plans.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - between us here, there are probably not too many queries we can't help with!!!!

Cakes

Hello again,
To all the Swan brides who instead of a reception are doing a family lunch/dinner did any of you have the restaurant order a cake? I was just wondering about the prices and to see if they were the same amount that just marry charges or more? Also my wedding planner is Erin, did anyone else have her and what did you think? Thank you!
Happy Halloween

Ordering a cake through the S/D is pretty pricey-- I wouldn't recommend it. I haven't heard much about ordering a cake through the restaurant. Sorry!

Most of us go with It's Tasty Too.. amazing cakes, sweet lady, and great prices.

I started out talking to Erin, and when I set up a visit, I met with Diana. I was told that it might be Diana handling my wedding and that they don't decide who has what wedding until it gets closer. So at this point I don't know who I am working with for the actual day of. Erin and Diana have both been super nice though!

Hey guys!
I am Talia, long time lurker, and am finally getting to the point where we are making concrete plans with the Swan and Dolphin We are planning on a late afternoon/ early evening ceremony October 29, 2013 (We may move this to the 26th for a Saturday, but the 29th will be the 2 year anniversary of our engagement) followed by a catered reception in one of the ballrooms. We have just started talking with Lindsey about the reception. I have read mixed reviews on the catering department, so we will see how it goes.
I just wanted to thank you ladies for posting all of the wonderful information you do, it has definitely helped us in our decision to go with Swan and Dolphin. Can't wait to start a pj of my own!

Hi Talia!!

Welcome and congratulations! I had a catered reception in one of the Swan reception rooms, coordinated by Lindsay & I cannot say enough wonderful things about her & our event! We had a plated lunch reception for around 55 guests in I think the Pelican room & also a cocktail hour in the Swan Courtyard. Both locations were gorgeous. Food was delicious. I felt that Lindsay went above and beyond for us and was a total sweetheart.

Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions!
