*Jeni and Carl's PJ and TR-SBP/CG/Wishes Cruise 8/17/09-UPDATE 8/09 - Discovery Cove*

Hi all,

As I've chosen my dress and bought the bridesmaid's jewellery and dress patterns I figured I should start a planning journal!

Not much to say at the moment except that Carl and I have been together for 4 years this month and he proposed to me in our resort hotel room on a Christmas trip to Disneyland Paris

We've both been lucky enough to have made Disney trips with our families in the past and we celebrated our 2nd anniversary at WDW in April/May 2006, staying at POFQ. We fell in love with the resort, and we experienced some wonderful treatment from CMs when they realised it was a special occasion.

We talked, half-jokingly, about a Disney wedding for a while, and eventually made the decision based on the fact that we will save huge amounts of money compared with standard UK wedding prices. At the moment we have only invited immediate family - Carl's parents, my parents, my brothers and SILs, plus their children (niece and 2 nephews).

We will be staying at POFQ, and marrying at SBP. We are aiming for August 17th at 5pm but can be flexible. We're also talking to Randy Chapman at the moment and trying to put down a deposit if the relevant email ever gets to him (I blame Carl's work server, *** he's sending it from work!)!

And finally, I am a scrapbooker so if there are any other scrappers who would like to share their work (I have a whole load of Disney LOs!) then I'm happy to post a link to my Flickr gallery

Things Completed:
- Dress (ordered and deposit paid)
- My shoes
- My bag - need a new one as it clashes with the dress!
- My Jewellery
- Carl's shirt
- Carl's shoes
- Randy Chapman booked and deposit paid
- Bridesmaids' jewellery
- Bridesmaids' outfit patterns (need to get material asap!!) - material now bought
- Planner assigned
- Music chosen
- Patricia Lejeune booked and deposit paid
- Teresa Knox booked and deposit paid
- Cake chosen for Disney and at home
- Favours decided
- Main group meals booked
- Wishes fireworks cruise booked
- Bridesmaid and flower girl outfits complete
- Wedding dress alteratiosn complete and now at home

Well, I finally have an update to add!

Randy Chapman has received our forms so we are pencilled in with him for August 17th 2009 at SBP

Now I only have to wait another 4 months before I can book it with Disney! Fingers crossed there'll be no problems with the date

Hi Jen and fellow scrapper, congratulations! Randy is brilliant to work with and such a nice man.

I decided to start scrapping to do one for us and my parents of our wedding but haven't done my first page yet. I'm going to do pages mainly to practice so I can do a good job on the wedding ones. I've laid out my design for a dog page (our best friend in the world is my parent's black labrador) but haven't started it yet - hopefully will this weekend.

I'd love to see your designs if you can send me the link. I'll send you a picture of my first page when it's done!

Hey there :D

I'm always pleased to meet a fellow scrapper - I've been doing it for 3 and a half years now and have made some great friends through the hobby

Here is a link to my gallery on Flickr - if you sign up and add me as a friend, I can do the same if you showcase your LOs

OK, I figured it was time for an update as I haven't added to my PJ in ages!

DF, his best man and my dad have got their linen shirts. In fact, my dad has sorted his whole outfit! My mum has bought three dresses which she noow aims to slim into, so we'll see how she goes!

Aside from that we now have Randy booked for August 17th and I just have to wait for that date this year to make the phone call! I called Disney weddings just to check if there was anything else I could do and the CM said to make a wishbook, though it doesn't seem that applicable for Escape weddings?

Thanks Cosi-bella :D

I was reading on here about Trash Your Dress the other day, and it's something I could never do (I hate destruction of any kind!) but today it was featured on Five News here in the UK. They had a bride whose dress cost £1000 - eek!!

We had a real stroke of luck yesterday! We were at a shopping centre and were browsing for shoes when DF saw they had two pairs of men's shoes for £50, and he found a pair that he liked for the wedding, as well as a new pair of everyday work shoes.

Then, I found a gorgeous pair of shoes for the wedding that were only £30!! Plus a bag for £15.

I can't believe we got all those things in one go! Will photograph later and try to post photos :D

Here is a link to the shoes.

Here is a link to my dress, although it does not do the detail justice!

Thanks

It really is comfortable, and weighs next to nothing.

Hopefully it won't be too difficult to transport on the plane either!
