Yes,
she is changing out of her dress to a less formal dress. She seems happy enough to do that. I'm also getting out of my suit.

I will need to ring a few suit places to get a decent price as I'm getting quoted too high. Could buy a suit over here for what I'm getting quoted.

Are you going to some of the parks? We have the 6 park flexiticket, plus discovery cover, kennedy space centre, and we will just pay at the gate for epcot and magic kingdom.

Yup we are doing the parks!! Our first five days we are staying at BLT and that takes us through all the VR events and then we are moving to PORS for 5 days. We have a 14 day ultimate ticket but will only do Disney this trip. We are in the fortunate position of being DVC owners and go over most years. We did SeaWorld and Universal last year and don't really feel the need this year (although I would quite like to see Harry Potter). Haven't done Discovery Cove yet though, so perhaps we can fit that in somewhere this year or next.

I really cannot help as far as the beach wedding is concerned as my VR is at the West Courtyard at the Swan. I have posted what I have in my package below (I have arranged the officiant myself - he is charging $200.00)

Exclusive reservation of the West Courtyard for the ceremony including chairs set up etc
The services of a professional co-ordinator to book package services, liase with vendors and co-ordinate the ceremony
A water station set up at the ceremony site
A guarateed indoor rain back-up (if needed)
The use of a hospitality suite on the day of the ceremony (if requested and if one is available)
Two bottles of chilled champagne for toasting
One bottle of chilled sparkling cider for toasting
Five bottles of orange juice
The services of two Swan servers to uncork and pour drinks and cut and serve the cake (all plates and silverware included)

This package (the elements of which I have cherry picked for myself) is costing $1882.57.

I have arranged my own florist, cake, transport, musician and officiant. Randy Chapman is doing my photography.
I have to say, that although I have done a lot of research and booking of vendors myself, my planner (Karen) from JustMarry has been brilliant!!! She is very quick at answering e-mails and has been advising and helping me all the way (even with my outside vendors). She will be there to see me through to the big day itself. I honestly cannot fault the service I have had from her so far!!
I hope this helps, but if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!!
Give Just Marry a call (or e-mail) - I am sure they will be happy to price out the beach option for you!!

Thank you so much KristiandBrian!!
This is a very helpful post!!
Welcome, it is lovely to have another S & D couple posting as we are few and far between on these boards!!
It would be great, if you have the time, if you could do a PJ (or a least a post) to tell us about your plans. Always eager to hear S & D plans!!!
Just to clarify (for other potential S & D couples) - the prices quoted here are an estimate of what you will pay if you go through JM/S & D for everything. You can, however, cherry pick the services you require from JM (the base price quoted being the minimum you will have to have through them).
As I said before, I reserched and booked my own photographer, officiant, musician, cake, hair and make-up and reception. I initially reserched my own florist, but ran into some problems, so Karen (my planner) stepped in and found me somebody else who I am, so far, thrilled with. Karen has been equally helpful whether we are discussing one of her vendors or one I have chosen.
I am really happy with the way things are going with my VR planning and I never seem to have the problems that some DFTW brides have with lack of contact from their planner. Karen always answers e-mails extremely quickly!!

We are using Karen as well, and she is wonderful!!

Our wedding is September 25, 2011. We are doing the ceremony, officiant, flowers, musician, cake, and my hair and makeup with this package. One of Brian's best friends is a photographer, so he is coming along to do the pics!

I'm absolutely amazed and how much we are saving doing the S&D wedding as compared to a wedding here, in Baton Rouge. Annnnnd...who doesn't want to get married in Disney???

It's nice to meet you all! I'm sure you'll see many posts by me, especially as the time gets closer! I'll have lots of questions, I'm sure of it!

This post is so helpful, thanks so much! I love the breakdown of all of the prices. We are doing an SD VR in May 2012 and I've just started talking to Karen via email. I love hearing other people's plans. We're looking into citricos and ll mulino (not sure if I spelled that right) for dinner after. I love that you can still get a Disney wedding for under $10,000 if you're willing to do a little of the work yourself.

Hair Question

Hi S&D brides!!

I had a quick hair question for you guys. My hair/makeup is included in the package we booked. What company does the hair/makeup for JustMarry? Karen is our wedding coordinator and I was just curious

P.S. Sorry if this is a silly question. I just have no idea And I'm so impatient!! The wedding is not until September and I want everything planned/done now!!

I don't know the answer to your question, but e-mail Karen and ask her - she will be only too happy to oblige you with the name of the beautician. She really is so helpful. I arranged my hair and make-up session myself. I am using Patricia LeJeune who seems to come highly recommended on here!!
Don't fell this is a silly question!! There is no such thing as a silly question!! On these boards, we all know what it is like to be anxious, and want to have everything planned and finalized. We are only too happy to help. I just wish I knew the answer to your question.

Hi ladies! I am also a S&D bride, Feb 15th 2011!!!! I cant believe that after 13 years together we are finally getting married! (until 2 weeks ago it was just going to be a family vacation....but we have decided to "take the plunge" lol)

Tinkerbell 766 you have been a HUGE help to me and you are totally unaware! lol
I read through your entire pj last night, and you have helped me with so much. I have no help doing any of this, so you with all your beautiful and imaginative ideas have been a godsend. I am only borrowing a few of your ideas, but you brought to mind so many things.
The main dream I had was to have a harpist, and you made that possible. I could not afford the price at the S&D, but I emailed Christine and she is going to be there for us.
I am also a "maggie bride" I got her "treasure" in ivory last month, and I LOVE it. (glad it came up and I decided to get it for "later")
I have to run for now, but I just wanted to post and say thank you, and congratulations to us all!
