Anna & DJ - 4/25/09 TR-Rehearsal Dinner & Fireworks added!

Okay, so hear we go....

This is Anna & DJ's Planning Journal for our DFTW on April 25, 2009. A 5PM Ceremony @ the Wedding Pavilion w/ the Grand Ballroom in the Grand Floridian for the Reception, and our grand exit on the Grand 1 Yacht! Yeah I am so excited!!!

We are having about 150 guests with all coming from out of town. DJ & I, along with our direct families live in Gainesville, FL...only 2 hrs from Disney.

We really dont have a theme yet. I do know that our colors will be a Sea Foam Green & a Tealish Blue, when they are together they pop. I am hoping to find the the BM dresses @ JCrew (the green) tea length & the men a nice clean grey suit with green shirts & DJ in a white shirt.

Oh & I have my dress it came in last week. The designer is a Bride 2 Be & it's a total Princess Dresses. I will post pics soon...

Cant wait to share more with everyone & I am sure I have left out a ton. Talk with everyone soon!
Anna

Thank you to all of the nice welcomes!!!

So we have updated & added some things.... (we just got back from meeting with our Consultant and doing a final walk through for all of the locations-a day trip)

The Whitehall room & Patio for a Pre-Reception area & the Marina area for Fireworks & Drinks, then our exit from there. I am pretty sure we are doing the Welcome Dinner @ the Living Seas, (have to take the FILs down there next month to make sure & show them everything)

Oh and I met to say earlier, I am up for any suggestions on the Ballroom decorations for the GF. I did not really want a ballroom but this was the best for everything else we wanted to do. To make it worse I really am not up for the traditional foral centerpieces. Suggestions??

Cant wait & I promise to post some pics soon. (my Mom has them all on her computer).

Oh I love that dress - so perfect for a DFTW!

I had to laugh - underneath your picture Kodak gives options if you want the picture you're viewing on a mug or mousepad. As much as I like the shoes you tried on, I'll pass on the mug!

But keep on posting - I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
