just piping in here quickly.. I think the dress mine and the bridal party was the most nerve wracking part of the whole wedding planning for me LOL

The delay and the wait wait wait is unnerving. I had my dress custom made and boy that seemed to take forever.

I LOVE the dress, the house, the cake & the 2nd ring. Everything seems to be falling into place, it's kinda scary, isn't it? We have the same plans as you, regarding the up coming holidays, we will buy the kids, 1 very nice gift and some smaller ones. Then starting January 1st, everything goes into the savings I just keep thinking.. IT'S ALL FOR DISNEY!!!

Guess we're ALL on the same page! As for the dress, I'm ordering it in April. I'll know when I get it how Far or Close I am to fitting in it. I figure, if I need to send it back and go up or down a size that gives me time. It's not from a bridal store here, have to order online. THAT'S what the stress will start!

I've already got our budget in a word doc. I keep adjusting as we go...not much room left. I've even budgeted in spending money. I'm really going to have to stick w/ our plan, because there is nothing I'm willing to NOT have!

Sooo, looks like January we'll all be IN THE ZONE!!! At least we have eachother to cry on eachother's shoulders!!

Hopping over from the wedding dress thread. Your dress is beautiful. Trying to convince my DP to get hitched, well as hitched as the law will allow. Looking forward to joining you on your journey.

(PS I already have a dress picked out )

Thanks for following. You already have the dress picked?? Then "On with the show Honey!" Yes, I wish we could do this legally. Still hard to belive EVERYONE has rights in this country but gays & lesbians, seems odd to say, only a select FEW can live "The American Dream". Until then, we take whateversteps we can to move forward. I will be legally hyphenating my last name, and am VERY excited about that. Good news, both our last names start with P, so the monograming stays the same!

We have been mulling over the idea of having our ceremony & reception video taped professionally. We did find a company who seems awesome. I explained it would be a quick ceremony, maybe 15 minutes, no attendants, just us & 3 readings. The owner of the company was SO willing to personalize a package for us, to meet our needs. He sent over a quote & contract yesterday. Wondering if anyone else is doing this and are willing to share prices? I have nothing to compare this to really. I DO know he seems the most reasonable. He sent over 2 DVD's full of wedding's he's done, so I have seen his work and am impressed. He's doing a short pre-ceremony taping, the ceremony, cocktail hour of our guests, some stills of us during picture taking and the reception, for $685, tax included, bottom price. We get 3 DVD's after. We will have to SQUEEZE this out of our budget, and I mean SQUEEZE. I decided yesterday to cut out the flowers at the reception tables and go with the ECHO FRIENDLY "Fruit in the Vase" look. LOVE that idea!! Any way, just wondering if anyones' looked into this.

Thanks!

Chris

This is the 1st reading, my son Aaron will read this. I thought since he's our family's COMIC RELIEF, this was PERFECT for him to read. We are ALL comedians' in our family, but he & I share the same sense of humor!

Reading for the ceremony!

Oh the Places You’ll Go - Dr Seuss
Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
You are the couple who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll look up and down streets. Look ‘em over with care.
About some you will say, “We don’t choose to go there.”
With your heads full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down, any not-so-good street.
And you may not find any
you’ll want to go down.
In that case, of course,
you’ll head straight out of town.
It’s opener there
in the wide open air,
Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen,
don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.
OH! THE PLACES YOU’LL GO!
You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
who soar to great heights!
You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have all the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang, and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly you’ll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don’t.
Because sometimes, you won’t.
You’ll get mixed up of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with so many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with great care and great tact
and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
KIDS, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
So, be your name Buxbaum or Dowrie or Bass
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So … get on your way!

Here is the 2nd reading, my daughter Amanda will read.

Looking For Your Face”, by Rumi “ (back to top of page)
“From the beginning of my life I have been looking for your face, but today I have seen it. Today I have seen the charm, the beauty, the unfathomable grace of the face that I was looking for. Today I have found you, and those who laughed and scorned me yesterday are sorry that they were not looking as I did. I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty, and wish to see you with a hundred eyes. My heart has burned with passion and has searched forever for this wondrous beauty that I now behold. I am ashamed to call this love human, and afraid of God to call it divine. Your fragrant breath, like the morning breeze, has come to the stillness of the garden. You have breathed new life into me. I have become your sunshine, and also your shadow. My soul is screaming. Every fiber of my being is in love with you. Your being has lit a fire in my heart, and you have made radiant for me the earth and sky. My arrow of love has arrived at the target. I am in the house of mercy, and my heart is a place of prayer.”

This will be the last reading, read by the youngest, Abby.

From Captain Corelli’s Mandolin - by Louis Bernieres:
Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out ,whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the emotion of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
