So now I am totally caught up! Your engagement story is so adorable - it completely made me teary!

I hope you have an awesome time at your planning session!!! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Makes sure if there are any specific cake flavors you want to try to request them for the tasting.

Also there seems to be some debate as to whether or not you can pay to have a mock up of your floral done. I would def ask about it - at least for your personal floral. If they are willing to do it - trust me it would be worth every penny.

If you get Laura please tell her I said hi!

Have fun!!!!

Thank you! I actually had a bit of a freak out session in February since the dress was not in Chicago with me. But now I am very happy with it

We have our planning session in three days i can't believe it is so soon! I'm very excited and will definitely post some pics

Rehearsal Dinner News PICTURES

So I got to talk to my NEW wedding planner today...keyword being new

Apparently there are so many weddings on 10.10.10 that they had to do some re-organizng. I don't mind much but my old wedding planner is still going to do my PS on Friday since it was already booked and my new Wedding planner has a wedding that day. Thankfully it is in the WP so she can stop by. Honestly i'm cool with it I just would like to at least meet her

The call went really well oherwise, and we discussed the Rehearsal Dinner. Since I stole Alex's idea for the Napa Room (his 1st choice) for the Reception I told him to think of other ideas. His Dad really wants to do a slideshow so a private room is a preference. They suggested the Attic and the Nutcracker ballroom at the Contemporary which I had never thought of. I really like the Attic since it's got a very homely feel to it and am not a fan of ballrooms so hopefully we will go with the Attic (min is 2500 and we would have about 25 people)

Here are some pictures! I think it will be really cool AND BONUS!! We can see Illuminations from the patio!





They emailed the menus over and we are going to take a look at them!

Planning Session Trip Report! (with pics!)

Hey everyone!

I'm back! Though I gotta say I wish we weren't. It was so beautiful there per the usual But I really love being there. Currently I'm just trying to catch up

Let's get started then!

DAY 1- Studios/Francks!/and Magic Kingdom

We arrived at Pop Century and I was so happy to see that we were in the 1950's building! Lady and the Tramp were right outside our window



And for breakfast what better than Mickey Rice Krispy Treats? We love them



So after that we headed out to Studios!

Day 1: Studios!

Moving on to Studios!

First things first...we exchanged our awesome gifts from DFTW I was so excited to get started!



Since I used to work in Tower/Coaster/and Fant I am not a huge Coaster fan...you hear the same six songs for 8 months straight its bond to happen however...Alex loves it so we went on anyway



Then at Tower we ran into a lot of our friends who work there full time. One was kind enough to let us ride by ourselves. It was pretty funny watching the look on everyone's faces who were still in the line. They were like dude? what is going on here I loved it! Alex got to ride by himself all the time when he worked there after the shift but it was my first time so i was going crazy



But enough park time! It was time for our Planning Session before we knew it! So off to the site visit at the Contemporary we go!

Site Visit-Contemporary

So our Wedding Planner was great enough to arrange a visit to the Contemporary prior to the Planning Session

Sonoma Room views- Cocktail hour/dancing/cake cutting.

We loved that you could see Epcot from the windows


From the other direction you could see Islands of Adventure and Universal and downtown Orlando


The view of the room. Its all cluttered now but everything will be moved out for dancing! I am a HUGE FAN of having the dancing be at the center of view so this will be perfect!

Our wedding planner, MAXINNE, is in the corner of the picture. I still can't believe we didn't get a single picture of her together lol...oh well next time
We were so happy when she said she could still be our planner

Day 1: Site Visit: Napa Room

Moving on to the Napa Room and the bridge with the view

The Napa Room will be where we will be having lunch. A few things to note about our reception which are AMAZING

1. They let us remove the desserts on the pre-set menu making the cost per person a little bit less (how much less I won't know until we get the BEO but lower) I figured if we are paying a lot for a wonderful cake, why would we need more desserts?

2. They let us combine the two minimums for each room so that we are making the min as a total and not seperatly this allowed us to have the bar offered in both areas

Napa Room!



We are going to have access to the bridge during the reception (weather permitting) But it's really gorgeous so fingers are crossed. And you can hear whatever is going on at the time in the park, so we could hear the Move it Shake it parade when we were up there

Some views from the bridge




Next up: The PLANNING SESSION!
