My fiance has recently canceled our wedding. We already have 3000 paid to APEX Decor in Garden grove. Believe me I wish much more that I was using this but I do not think marriage is in my cards for a while now.

If anyone is interested I would sell you my contract for half the price of what I paid. So 1500 for the florist for 3000 worth of flowers and decor. Please email me for more information if you are interested.

And thanks for the opinion on the Garden room and the ballooms.

Btw I saw your wedding spotlight on Carly's disney wedding blog and the pics were so romantic! The wedding was beautiful! Congrats!
Thanks much! If there's anything else you need advice with, feel free to ask!

By the way when I say we hired outside vendors, I mean everything. We hired a woman to come in and do chair covers at $4 a piece, we hired the band ourselves, and the florist, and I think that covers it. We took them the wine the day before, which is fine because we had to be there for the rehearsal anyway.

Bobbe is a great way to go. He's definitely not the cheapest florist you could find, but when you look at what you get for the money, he's a bargain (especially when compared to Disney). The thing I loved about him was his style and the way he used so many different textures in his work.

I think you should definitely call and look around, talk pricing. When it comes to money we paid Disney I think we were right near the minimum. Our planner was Kelly and she was so helpful, and I never felt like she was annoyed with us for wanting to give the company less of our money.

Thanks again! I really appreciate your help! Thanks for the recommendation about Kelly. Its so hard to get recommendations on planners and vendors cuz our little Disneyland community is so small! Lol!

I was also wondering what kind of menus Disney offers? What food did you sample? How did it work? What would you recommend? Sorry for being so nosy! I'm just so curious! I wish I could start planning now but the wedding might postponed till 2012 and we were shooting for 2011! So I'm a little disappointed. I just wanna get started already! The only thing that keeps me going is just hoping that it will still happen in 2011 so I keep planning. I know its not much longer to have it in 2012 but I've already been waiting for 4 years! Anyways I'm ranting, thanks again!

Question Questions about Animation Building

Back again! Lol! Now I need some info about the Animation Building in California Adventure! I saw some pics and I fell in LOVE! Now thats my number one choice for the reception location! So now I need some info about pricing! I love this location but I know everything is so much more for the in-park location like food and disney floral, disney photography, but I also figured I wouldnt need any decor except for the centerpieces since the place is already beautiful with all the amazing disney scenes so it might be save a bit of money since im planning on having a huge decor budget. Anyways it still might be too much so I need some updated pricing info and I would really appreciate any help before I get too attached! PLEASE HELP! I would also appreciate more pics! Thanks again!

Yes, I believe they are. I called about six weeks ago to inquire and was sent the same information. Unfortunately, I'll have to shave a few people off the guest list to go this route; we asked if there was a flat fee we could pay to add 3 more guests and were told this isn't possible, that we'd have to move up to a Wishes wedding. The guest limit is 24 plus the bride and groom for a total of 26 and anyone 3 and over is included in the guest count. An extra $5k for three more guests....it just doesn't make sense for us. But, I get that the have to draw the line somewhere.

Below are the pictures they sent me of the ceremony and reception sites that are offered with the Escape package:


Dreams Lawn


Parkside Terrace


Wisteria Ballroom


Dreams G Ballroom

Question Passporter Weddings e-book for Disneyland

Anyone have any insight on whether the Passporter Weddings e-book is useful for starting to plan a Disneyland wedding? It says it's for WDW and the Cruise Line, but I'm wondering if some of it translates. We haven't made a decision to do a DL wedding yet, but I want to make sure that I'm thinking of everything!

I emailed them and asked if it would be worth it and they said no especially since Disneyland weddings operate on a smaller scale than WDW weddings and rely heavily onoutside vendors. If you're looking for more info about Disneyland weddings I recommend joining the Disney brides! Its a great forum and it has much more details about Disneyland weddings and WDW weddings! I love it!

Gazebo

MouseFiend - what a beautiful gazebo! Is that where the wedding was held? or just part of the decor?

Thank you! Do you mean the Disney brides at disneybrides DOT com ? I'll check it out!

Edited to Add - and if you do mean disneybrides DOT com, do you mind if I mention you as my referral source? It looks like you need someone to vouch for you. I promise to play nice! (I registered as katel over there, too).

I believe you can have the ceremony there. One of the wedding coordinators sent me these pictures as I was researching the possibility of a DL wedding. We still haven't decided; we are a few guests over the maximum allowed for an Escape ceremony, but we've had a few guests volunteer to skip the ceremony and just come to the parks with us afterwards, so we would just have immediate family. I may get my DL wedding afterall
