Andrea & Randy July 2010~My mad Hatter Tea Party Lots of pictures!

Hi Everyone. I just love this board everyone is great and I am getting so many ideas already!

My name is Andrea and my DF's name is Randy. I met him 6 years ago when we both worked at a restaurant. I had to train him after working there for 3 years and found out they started him making more then me an hour. So I was not too happy the first day we met. But soon later we started to date he is a couple years older then me and was in college at the time. We went to my high school prom together and have now been together for 6 years. We have decided to get married and knew right away Disney was the place to do it. My family has been to Disney ever since I was young. My father loves Disney as well and one of my favorite things to do with him was planning our Disney trips. Just a few months after dating my df went on a family Disney trip with me and we have been going when ever we can ever since.

Next week I am going to be in Disney and I am going to be able to look at a few places. I really want to do the California grill but wish I could personalize the menu but I guess I have to decide what’s more important.

Dresses

How do you put pictures on here all i can find is something that says the website what if its not off a website.

Well here are some of the dresses I am loooking at!!!! I just dont know what to choose. I am having a small wedding is Disney with around 30 people and then having a larger reception at home once we get back. So i will be wearing my dress twice so it has to be something I am comfortable in. It will also be July and really hot.

I'm glad you were able to start your PJ. The Disney dresses are amazing; have you gotten a chance to try any on yet?

Looking forward to seeing your plans unfold.

I LOVE the disney dresses. I drove 4 hours to try on one of the Belle ones... However when I was there I saw the white Giselle one that you have pictured. I really really liked it. If I had more time I would have tried it on. I would go with that one as a first choice.

YAY!!! I haven't seen anyone else on this board with disney dresses. Its so weird one would think that everyone would want one just because of the label.

Anway just one little secret I learned. Once you decide which dress you want and the size you need call around to all of the stores and check ebay. Usually if someone has the dress in stock its soooooo much cheaper then ordering it and you get it so much faster. I couldn't find my dress in my size/color anywhere and wanted to try it on first so I kept shopping around. I ended up getting mine from a bridal store in CA new with tags for 80% off. It was the greatest bargain of the century.

So what are you looking at other than the California Grill? My feelings are that the view of the fireworks makes up for the lack of menu choice - but thats just me. I am excited we are doing a first night dinner there.

if you take a peek at my pj- i took some photos of the view from the napa room at california grill- we was told this had the best view of the park- but i never saw the view from the restruant or the sonoma room- the sonoma room just looks out into the lakes for miles.

Save the Dates

I have not had a chance to try on the dresses yet but I am planning on doing that soon! So far the Giselle is my first choice. Thanks for the tips on finding it cheaper. 80% off that's amazing!! So I have found two save the dates I love I might find a way to use both.

First is an idea I am stealing from Bride-to-be. She has pictures in her PJ. Its so cute its a stuff mickey that when u squeeze him he talks about your wedding!!!

Second thing i just found is a flip book. I know I had a few of these from the disney store when i was younger and you can make your own. I was going to make one with my DF and I holding cards that show our wedding and and stuff.
Here is the website

http://disneyshopping.go.com/disney/...Disney-Moments



I like them both so much i might have to do both. Ill think of some way to make them link together. Or maybe i can use the flip book as a thank you. I guess ill have to think about it.

centerpieces

Here are my center pieces. I love the Castles and wanted a way to include them in my decor. So I found these. I am going to put candles and rose petals around them to.







They are made by Jim Shore. I just love them!!

I am so glad you like my mickeys! I was telling Shelley from Impressions that the ultimate thing to do would be to have multiple characters and have them carry on a conversation. I wish I had had more time to explore that idea.

Anyhoo I also love the flip book! If I had known about it I would have done it too. I def think you should combine both of them. Have all of your details of your wedding on the back of the flip book or last page or something and use it as the save the date card.

I LOVE your center piece ideas. If we go with a castle ceremony I think that would be perfect - we could have each table themed after a different disney princess! Do you know if they make more then just the three? Even though hong kong looks the same as disneyland and tokyo is the same as WDW they are all slightly different. It would be so great if they had different ones for each..... Otherwise what do you do on the other tables? Do you just have a bunch of the castles that are the same?

I am going to have to go look at the jim shore website...

The one castle looks slightly familiar Sorry for the hijack; I just fell in love with it when I saw it at the MK during our planning session trip and had to buy it. I knew about the one for Disneyland, but not about Beauty & the Beast. I think I might need to have DH start a collection for me.

That would be so cool! I am so bad with technology though i do not think i could ever figure that out. From what i have found there are only three castles but the Beauty and the Beast one came out not to long ago so maybe hopefully he will come out with more. Right now I will have to have two of each for six tables. But jim shore has a lot of cool stuff he has a Cinderella carriage I may have to get it to put some where.



Also I got this off eBay cheap not sure what i am going to do with them yet but they are so cute.

That is so funny because I have looked at your pictures and I am embarrassed to admit this I thought I was another cake. I said to myself that cake must have cost a lot to cut it out to look like the castle.lol... It looks greats with your real cakes though!! I am waiting to get my Cinderella castle it in the mail I cant wait for it it look so pretty.
