sand ceremony

I think I've decided on a dark blue and tan for our sand ceremony colors. I want to be able to display it somewhere and those colors will go with our bedroom.

For those that have done the sand ceremony, where did you get your sand? A local craft store, or online?

I am scared my sand will get all messed up and totally mixed together on the plane home. I was to see you trying on your dress!

Lisa,

My 'plan' is to really cram the sand in so that it is so full it can't move and also to put it in my carry on. Praying that after all this, that I don't have a problem.

We actually got our sand through Disney Floral which worked out perfectly. Our colors were blue and white. I don't think you can carry them in your carry on with the new regulations. We stuffed tissue inside our jar (which had a lid) and it still got mixed up a little. I figured that it's okay because after all it shows how our lives are truly joined together now and can't be separated

sand

For all of you who are creating a sand ceremony and are worried about the sand mixing or becoming loose...try using melted candle wax ontop of the sand before you put the cork or top on for good. It works! Try it at home first to see if that is what you want.

Patricia,
Just checking in to see how things are going with the plans. I noticed you mentioned making extra money on ebay. I was curious about that. I would love to make some extra money for our fall trip. I had mentioned upgrading to Port Orleans to Emily (oldest DD) before I actually crunched the numbers. After I did the price comparison between Value and Moderates I realized it was a considerable difference. She is really disappointed now. I would love to surprise everyone with a Moderate Resort but only if I could pay for the difference by myself. We like the Values, I just thought it would be nice to try somewhere else. I'll just be happy to go.

Just wondered if you had any tips.

The picture of you and your husband at your wedding is so neat.

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for checking in. Ebay is a little slow going, but I have been selling some things (mainly books and clothes). I know what you mean about staying in a moderate, we too have only stayed at values, but I think after pulling this cruise off, we'll be able to do anythign we set our mind too. My plan is to have as much paid off before the balance is due (since it has to be paid in full before the end of May). We'll then put the balance on our disney visa and get the points (and pay that off asap).

We put our initial $400 deposit down and I've already made two more payments of $150 each. I'm planning on putting $100 every other week (when I get paid) as I had been putting that money in savings. Granted we could be earning interest by putting it in the ING until it's due, but I don't want any chance of it getting used for 'bills' so I am doing it this way and not worrying about the interest.

I hope you are able to upgrade to the moderate, but like you mentioned, we too love the values (we aren't in the room but at night to sleep).

I was showing hubby the sand ceremony set tonigth and explained what someone mentioned about the wax (sealing the sand in the main bottle for travel) and he started repeating the same thing... cause he's been lurking here reading all this too. I told him he needs to start a list then so we don't forget... he say's you already did, but I told him my list was a mental one right now!! If he's going to hang out here reading about our plans, he needs to do something.

That's definitely a smart way to do it. We just paid off last fall's Disney trip with our income tax refund. I think that is basically the plan for next year too. We do have a "vacation fund" that we save money in for spending money. I always worry about it getting spent on bills too.

Are you selling clothes that you don't wear anymore? I usually just get rid of mine at Goodwill or Salvation Army. Sometimes the clothes are in too bad shape so they get thrown in the rag bin. Abby does have some things she has outgrown that I could sell. Dresses and things that she didn't wear out.

I keep threatening to sell their Beanie Babies on Ebay. They have about 100 or more in containers under their beds. But if I did that I would probably be in huge trouble with my MIL since she bought most of them plus I don't want to hurt her feelings.

That's a great idea for sealing your bottle of sand! Just make sure you don't set off the smoke detector in your cabin.

I think we better do that on the verandah to be safe.

As for ebaying, I am selling clothes that I would have taken good will. Basically if I wouldn't buy it, I won't sell it. Unfortunately beanie babies don't seem to sell on ebay. I have a TON of them and keep planning on taking them to the state police cause they collect them to send to the soldiers to give to the kids.
