Is it because of the temporary Sunset Point thing I head about that you can't book until 8 months out? Coz normally it's 12 isn't it, but I remember reading there was something about it changing for SP for a limited period of time, can't remember the ins and outs of it though.

It seems like we have been waiting forever for our booking time to come round!

If it's not over a weekend I'm sure you'll get one of your first couple of choices

Yes it is. I will ask Disney again in November if its still 8 months and hope it might of changed.

I'm sure we will get one of our choices, but I hate having to book and asking everyone else to book before its booked (we will book at 11 months when the flight prices come out).

Actually the 31st times are now relagated to last choice as although i'd prefer to get married on this day I picked the 30th as I thought the 31st would be more popular and booking the restaurant and boat might be harder. The 30th is a Wednesday.

Can't wait to read more of your wedding plans
I meant to say thank you for reading along.

I thought I maybe possibly read that it was until January or something that this 8 month thing was up to, so perhaps you can book then, or whatever date the ruling goes back to normal, if it's before August.

I know, we had trouble trying to get people to book as they wanted to wait until we had the date confirmed, but thankfully they booked early in the end (something to do with Virgin being about to drop their discount by 5% ), but already economy had sold out on our flight so we have people flying out at different times...

Latest on the Parents

Saw my Dad on Friday/Saturday, he took us out for a lovely meal to celebrate our engagement so I took the oppertunity to fill him in on the plans. He didn't say much at first, think he was slightly shocked, but he didn't say anything negagtive which I thought he might only that he wished it was a bit nearer home. He offered to pay for the meal after the wedding which is a big help and he said he wanted to pay for my wedding dress although he seems to think they don't cost much, he thought £1000 ($2000) was too much for a wedding dress, as most start at about £1000 he was being a bit naive although the ones I like at the moment is only £400 so well under that.

Then on Sunday we saw DFs parents and brother. Told his brother the plans and he was very positive. So far his Dad hasn't said much, his Mum on the other hand is negative but she doesn't actually come out and say it if the makes sense, you can just tell she isn't happy with the whole idea. Oh well she'll come round in the end i'm sure.

Hi Claire

Don't know how I missed your thread but your plans sound great so far. We had a similar issue with family. My hubby's Mum and Dad decided not to come, but they were ok with us getting married abroad. We ended up with My Mum and her partner, Hubby's Brother and his girlfriend and 3 friends. We booked our wedding and holiday through Virgin, it's was the best option for us as I used to work in travel. The plan was Sunset Pointe at 2.30pm on the 30th Nov, I was able to book this 12 months out. Sadly the weather turned and we had rain on the day but they did manage to move us to the Pavillion at no extra cost. The day was absolutely beautiful and although I loved Sunset pointe the pavillion was amazing. We have said that we might go back and renew our vows at Sunset though as I loved the location.
Good luck with you planning and keep us posted.

Hi Emma! Thanks for reading along. We have talked about maybe changing to the Wedding Pavillion so that more people can come if they want and the comfort of knowing if it rains we'll be ok. Did you feel odd just a few people in such a large space?

I know DF's Mum and Dad will definately come, they, well his Mum, just aren't happy about where it is.

I was totally surprised by the WP. I had the same thought, it looks so huge and to only have 8 or so people would it look strange. After getting over the dissapoinment of not having my favourite location, I just got on with it. Got in the Limo and thought what will be will be. When we arrived our planner met us and took me to the brides vestibule, it was beautiful. A lovely little room to get your thoughts together, there's a restroom and a vanity unit there too plus a full length mirror. I was wowed from the start. Then it was time, they opened the doors and I was greeted with the site of my hubby to be and then Cinderella's castle through the window. I have never seen anything like it and it took my breath away. I didn't notice how many people were there or if it looked odd until we saw the photo's but even then it looked ok, I would say intimate.

I don't have a picture showing the guests whilst sat down so I only really noticed it when we watched the video. This is a pic of us all together at the front

Thanks Emma. I think we will definately think about switching as more people could come then plus no weather worries.

Every bit certainly does help! My Mum has said she'll give me some money as well but she won't be pinned down on how much!

Ooo thanks, not that long for you now! We can't book for over 6 months still, think the wait may kill me.

The wait killed me too. We couldn't get our original date though 3rd November as wishes weddings had booked it before we where allowed too, but we got the date 05 November (Bonfire night for us UK brides) which worked out even better.

We booked our holiday first which took our mind off not being able to book til 8 months out. We were quite flexible with our date. It's gone pretty quick. I brought my wedding dress 18 months out and it seemed far away but as soon as you hit the 8 month spot there is so much to do.

Which ever location you chose will be beautiful and you can't get much more special and fairytale than doing a disney wedding x x
