Wow - everything looks wonderful. Love your dress, flowers, centerpieces, everything. You kids look perfect in their wedding outfits and so does you DH. We had Misty and Stan also and we just loved everything they did. I remember reading your PJ and everything came together. Our wedding day was November 10, 2008 and I remember when you were planning your VR posting on your journal yoru VR was the day before our anniversary and we were planning on being down there for that. Unfortunately we were not able to make it back until Feb. 2010.

If you ever go back for the anniversary of your VR and we make it back for our anniversary - we will have to meet.

We would love to do either a VR or just a Grand Gathering of some kind for our 5 year anniversary - as we had the big Disney wedding - I think a GG event for our 5 year anniversary would be perfect.

Linda

I found your TR from a post you had on another thread. I just read the whole thing and I love everything you had. After seeing the pics you had with your children after the wedding I wish I had the forethought to ask that they stay with us for our pictures.

I love you idea of having another VR in maybe Hawaii at Aulani. I just may steal that idea. Even though DH and I just got married in December I am already wanting to do it again, lol.

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you so very much!!
I keep changing my mind going back and forth with a VR in Hawaii or an Escape VR at WDW. It would just be DH and I and our 2 kids. I would really like to do it on the Poly beach and then have a nice dinner followed by a Illuminations dessert party! That was the one thing I wanted that we couldn't do due to the time of our event. I know Hawaii would be beautiful but that long plane ride scares me! LOL

Then we had to buy AP's for our kids, we recieved 2 free adult AP's and of course money for the week we were done there and MVMCP tickets. Oh and around $30 for the activities for the kids table that I bought myself, and I don't have the figures in front of me but I had to add the price for the invites that I made, the place cards and holders and table name cards. The other biggest price was tax and gratuity which was I believe around $2,000!! When all was said and done it was right around $30,000.

Hope this helps!
