Your dress and ring are gorgeous!

Could you combine the two centrepieces maybe? Use different heights for the cylinders, and yellow flowers with the candle on the top?

As for BM dresses, have you tried Alfred Angelo's UK website, as you can get several knee-length dresses, and have them in the colour 'sunshine'. There's some gorgeous ones on there.

Or there's Dessy.com. They have *a lot* of knee-length dresses, and you can have them in the colour 'buttercup'. I'm thinking of a few dresses from here - might have to order them waaaaaaay in advance so they don't get discontinued though

Think that's what i'll do, have yellow flowers and different sized cylinders. Or maybe the gel filled cylinders with the lights in?

Does anyone have a pic of these? I've heard about them but never seen them.

Hi

Just a little update, I've been looking at what kind of cakes to get.

I like this one, but in yellow kind of colours.


and maybe with an extra layer but I couldn't find a pic.

But DF wants one with the castle on top *** he says its more 'disney'!!! think I may have to let him have his way seeing as I'll be picking everything else!!!

These are some of the bm dresses I like

but in yellow obviously


All the bridesmaids are gonna wear different dresses, but all in the same colour and maybe material.

Sounds great - the good thing about those dresses is that they'll look good on more or less everyone, no matter the shape or size etc!

Some other bits I've seen whilst browsing here and on the internet.

I really like these for place name holders. Does anyone know if Disney charge for bringing in your own things for the table? I'm gonna let them do the centerpieces and the petals and stuff, I just wanted to be able to buy a few things myself.

Or maybe these...

I've seen these on a few other peoples PJ, they are so pretty and perfect for Disney I think!

I also wanted some of these sprinkled around the petals, just to make it extra sparkly!


I really like Lyne5700's bouquet, so I think I'm gonna have one like that but in yellow with some crystals added.

Sort of like this but MUCH bigger!!!!

Im just stressing at the mo *** I'm just finishing uni in a few weeks and trying to get a job, the only problem is, the job situation is looking quite poor at the mo and I may only be able to get part time hours, so this means ALOT of saving for the wedding!!
Does anyone have any tips on saving money and staying close to the minimum?
I'm also worried about a convention taking my date!!! How often doe sthis happen, it's been on my mind since I 'tentatively' booked! What happens if it does, do I just pick another reception venue?

- some banks have a 'save the change' system where, if you buy something on your card for £5.75 (or whatever price) they round it up to the nearest pound and put that in a saving account
- get an isa account and earn interest whilst you save - nationwide have good isa's and saving accounts, but you might need to have a current account with them (even if you don't use it much)
- save up all your loose change...empty your purse of loose change every couple of days...it soon adds up!
- take advantage of buy one get one free etc!
- join up to points earning sites such as ipoints and toluna and receive gift certificates etc such as amazon vouchers
- enter competitions in magazines such as take a break and chat!! you never know...could win something!
- buy store own brands instead of top brands
- direct debit a set amount of money each month into a saving account, even if its only £50...something is better than nothing

- do things like invitations etc yourself. we were going to buy ours, and with extras like placecards, save the dates etc, it would have come to over £1500 for the ones we wanted. Now we've decided to make our own and its coming in well under that for a larger quantity
- buy things on ebay etc instead of bridal stores where the prices are sometimmes ridiculous!

I know the feeling = Firstly, congratulations on finishing uni! I'm going in September...the amount of debt I'll be in by the time I'm 26/27 (when I'll be qualified as a lawyer) is freaking me out. I have no idea how I'm going to save up for our wedding. I'll only be able to get part time hours whilst I'm studying.
Something will come along. Keep scouring the papers, or go on jobcentreplus and see if you can find anything there.
Maybe if you have a talent, such as playing an instrument etc, you could teach? I'm a genealogist, and am getting paid for researching other people's family trees. It's just an idea


Oh, and I LOVE the bouquet - it'll look beautiful. The sparkle is great, as are the placecards - I've seen those, they're fantastic for a disney wedding!

Kayleigh, you are so logical and helpful!!!!

I am just in the process of opening an isa to save money for the wedding, and hopefully we'll be getting help with most of it.

I just got an email from my coordinator about the magic kingdom phoot session with a phone number on to arrange it so gonna be doing that later. Its so exciting!!!

Anything to help a dis-bride...especially a UK one!

ISA's are great. I know that with a couple of banks you can earn 5%, even 6%. If you saved £3,600 (the maximum...or is it £3,700) in a year, then 5% is an extra £180 you didn't have! And even more if you both get one! That'll pay for plenty of little things!

Wow! You're right! We do have a lot of the same things picked out. We have similar taste. I love your ring. I wanted a solitaire ring but he got me something different (I still love it of course). BTW, that dress is stunning! I can't wait to see it on you!!

Hi all

I've not updated in a week, been job stressing instead of wedding planning! But I have had chance to lull over a few ideas.

I've decided I want flower centerpieces now instead of cylinder ones (think I want more of a summery wedding) so I've picked out these for inspiration

But with more ivory colored roses.

I still can't decide whether to go with the Magic Kingdom portrait session, I just dunno if it's really worth the money? I think they look great, but I just keep thinking of other things I can spend the money on.

So, I don't 'officially' have to sort out my room block yet but I just wanted to start the ball rolling so I picked the hotels I'm gonna chose - Grand Floridian (where us and probably most of the guests will be staying), maybe the Polynesian ( DF parents want to stay here), Port Orleans and All Star Sports. Since I've never stayed on Disney property I have absolutely no idea what any of these hotels are like, but I think these look really nice, what do you guys think?

E.T.A. How far are each of these resorts from the Grand Floridian, and can you get a taxi?
