Think of your guests and there budget - that is what Joe told me. Since people are burden now with so many higher costs everywhere due to fuel increases.

I picked Pop Century and both Port Orleans for my block and I focused on who I knew would come and would stay on property and then added 1-2 extra rooms to cover guests I wasn't sure about.

Good luck - that spread sheet is scary!!

Randy called me today to let me know the pics would be ready on Monday and Linda would send the CD out then. I begged a pleaded for him to put just a few up he said he wasn't finished with the pictures but he would put a few teasers up for me... I love how they turned out!!!






There are more but these are all I could get for now, when I get more I will post them.

Randy did an awesome slide show of our pictures. http://chapmanphotography.typepad.co.../09/index.html

Thank you!!! Although I feel I should confess that I "borrowed" some of your e-pics and showed them to Randy as an idea of what I wanted. Hope you don't mind.

Thank you so much! I can't wait unitl I get the CD.



In other news only 2 days until I can officially start my 12 month count down, and only 5 days until I hear from Heidi and get confirmation if we can have our date and location!!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!! crossing my fingers.

The other day I found these invitations that I thought were gorgeous:

but if I use these I would have to change my color scheme from blue, white and silver to blue, ivory and gold?? What do you guys think? Would it be really hard to coordinate blue and gold? I tried searching for ideas but I couldn't find anything...

Your e-pics look amazing so far!! Can't wait to see more!! about the color scheme, you can see on the invites blue and gold go great together!! So I totally think you can do it!! I think most colors look good together as long as you have the correct hue. If you are still unsure about gold what about champagne? I think it's a milder version of gold. Kinda silver and gold mixed you know??

Wonderful photos. There was a bride on her recently who was thinking of going blue and gold and was thinking Beauty and the Beast colors. I think this would look great and those invites are beautiful.

Thanks Linda, I wish I knew who it was so I could get some ideas I am having a really hard time with the colors.

THANK YOU!!!!! I was so worried about the pics, we took them the day Tropical Storm Faye was supposed to hit. It rained the entire time we were taking pictures at the Grand Floridian. After every picture Randy would stop and clean the lens of his camera.

HI VAL!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I went to the fabric store looking for a swatch of champagne fabric and I think it will go really well with the blue. I emailed Heidi to see if they could get some chair sashs in the same color. The gold I saw was to yellow!!! Thanks for the suggestion.

After countless hours glued to my computer I managed to find this pic today, I really like it...



So I am so excited I finally hit 12 months today!!!!! That means that after 9 months of waiting the real fun begins!!!! WOO HOO!!!!! (and bridezilla may even come out to play )
