I love the simple centerpieces with all the candles and a few flowers!
Your monograms are always amazing! I really need you to make me some

After seeing the reception site i really do think that simple centerpeices will look better. Italy is so gorgeous all on its own.
I'm still not happy with my monogram, but i would love to create one for you. let me know!

I know that sounds weird, but like in that pic of you with your ears on, your face is so symmetrical - you're gorgeous!!

BTW, where did you get your tiara? i love it!
I am the complete opposite of you I love being the center of attention. I don't want anyone walking into the church with me because it will distract from me! You are so sweet, i have never been told I had a great shaped face!!! that's funny. thank you!! The tiara I got it on ebay from rbsze.

SITE VISIT & E-PICS SESSION
The first days were boring and uneventful so I won’t spend too much time on them.
We didn’t arrive to Miami until 2:30 am (the flight was supposed to leave Houston at 6 it left at 11:30- I hate American Airlines)so we didn't have a chance to pick up the rental car until the following morning. Anyway so we spent all Saturday in Miami with my baby! I was so excited to see him, 4 months was way too long.

We drove to Orlando early Sunday morning and made it there in a record 3 hours! Usually it takes us 5. Apparently we made it to Orlando before Tropical Storm Fay did!! The day was gorgeous.


Once I started seeing the Disney signs I went nuts!!!! I was so excited!!!!

We stayed at the Pop this time, I had never been there and it turned out to be really cute, I loved it. Even though we were early we decided to check in anyway and then walk around the Pop and take some pictures.

When we checked in the girl gave me these cute “happy anniversary” buttons, I explained to her why we were there but she insisted we keep and wear our buttons anyway. So we did. This was cause for a lot of attention!

We hung out in the room for a little while. We had reservations at 1900 Park Fare so after some more pics we headed over to the Grand.


I love 1900 PF. They gave us these cute little place mats with the characters signatures. we took pics with all of them, i had never seen sergio so excited to take pics with the characters. he was having a ball.

Monday – Site Visit Day:

We skipped breakfast because we were running really late. We managed to get to Francks 5 mins before our appt. time. When we walked in Heidi was standing at the door waiting for us. I have to say she is AWESOME!!!! So we sat down and started going thru my 8 pages of questions. Heidi was so wonderful she answered all of them and even took notes.


These are some of the questions I asked Heidi:
A price breakdown (what will I be charged for) EXTRAS / FEES
$300 - to move existing umbrella tables
$2500 – site fee (Italy plaza / Italy west)
will find out if we can combine the minimums of the locations so we don’t have a separate minimum to use the AAR Parlor for the kids.
$250 – venue rental AAR Parlor

Since the CH only last 1 hr and the trio is paid for 3 hrs can they be used @ the offsite ceremony? Extra Fee? They still will only be used for 2 hrs including the ceremonyThere is no extra fee to use the string trio during the ceremony, but it will depend on the ceremony location site and on Disney entertainment. will find out if it is allowed

When will save the dates go out?
They are publishing new save the dates, those will be available in October. Heidi recommended we wait until they come out and she will send us a sample. Said they are to look more like formal invitations instead of brochures.

Is it possible to include our own STD magnets in the mailing?
No need to mail that on your own.

Do we have to have our full invite list ready to go for STDs
No it is preferable that most of the guests are on the list but not all we will get extras in case we need to add people. Guest list needs to be sent out in excel format.

What if it rains so hard they cancel fireworks what if it rains at all? What is our backup location?

It usually does not rain if it does cocktail hour will be moved to and indoor location.
Backup locations are TBD. Other options are Living Seas Salon, Odyssey, maybe China Pavillion.

How will we handle people that are not staying at Disney?
They should park their car at Epcot, and we can have the Bus do a second pickup either at epcot or WP or a resort.

If people drive themselves how will they get to the reception? Behind the scenes?
Everyone must be bused in so they can park at epcot before the ceremony, the bus will pick them up then the bus will drive everyone to from the church to epcot backstage.

Can dis transportation be used to the ceremony?
Yes. Mears transportation.

if so, is there a limit on distance?
No there is no limit on distance, if we need more time we can use them.

How will we handle illuminations viewing fees for those that have park hopper tickets, regular tickets for that day, or AP’s?
Either everyone had tickets and we are not charged for anyone or we are charged for all guests.

Payment dates
$2000 deposit/ in check with contract
remaining minimum due – 90 days before event.
$overage due 30 days before
72 hours before must provide final guest count

Deposit Amount
$2000

Do you have the STD in Spanish?
They will translate the STD into Spanish and then send it to me to proof.

(i love her bag!!!)

We then headed over to Epcot to look at the locations. I loved driving backstage:

This is where we will come for our tasting


We went to see the:
Grand Summer House - where rehearsal dinner will be
Living Seas Salon - possible rain out location

Italy West - pre-reception

Italy Plaza – reception

AAR Parlor - where the children’s party will be


Once we were done we came back to Francks, finished up the meeting and I took a few pics around at things I liked:
