I saw this poem and thought of you since you are using the dandelion as a logo for your wedding.

To the Dandelion

Dear common flower, that grow'st beside the way,
Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold,
First pledge of blithesome May,
Which children pluck, and, full of pride, uphold,
High-hearted buccaneers, o'erjoyed that they
An Eldorado in the grass have found,
Which not the rich earth's ample round
May match in wealth, thou art more dear to me
Than all the prouder summer-blooms may be.

Gold such as thine ne'er drew the Spanish prow
Through the primeval hush of Indian seas,
Nor wrinkled the lean brow
Of age, to rob the lover's heart of ease;
'Tis the Spring's largess, which she scatters now
To rich and poor alike, with lavish hand,
Though most hearts never understand
To take it at God's value, but pass by
The offered wealth with unrewarded eye.

Thou art my tropics and mine Italy;
To look at thee unlocks a warmer clime;
The eyes thou givest me
Are in the heart, and heed not space or time:
Not in mid June the golden-cuirassed bee
Feels a more summer-like warm ravishment
In the white lily's breezy tent,
His fragrant Sybaris, than I, when first
From the dark green thy yellow circles burst.

Then think I of deep shadows on the grass,
Of meadows where in sun the cattle graze,
Where, as the breezes pass,
The gleaming rushes lean a thousand ways,
Of leaves that slumber in a cloudy mass,
Or whiten in the wind, of waters blue
That from the distance sparkle through
Some woodland gap, and of a sky above,
Where one white cloud like a stray lamb doth move.

My childhood's earliest thoughts are linked with thee;
The sight of thee calls back the robin's song,
Who, from the dark old tree
Beside the door, sang clearly all day long,
And I, secure in childish piety,
Listened as if I heard an angel sing
With news from heaven, which he could bring
Fresh every day to my untainted ears
When birds and flowers and I were happy peers.

How like a prodigal doth nature seem,
When thou, for all thy gold, so common art!
Thou teachest me to deem
More sacredly of every human heart,
Since each reflects in joy its scanty gleam
Of heaven, and could some wondrous secret show,
Did we but pay the love we owe,
And with a child's undoubting wisdom look
On all these living pages of God's book.

James Russell Lowell [1819-1891]

Luggage Tags and Kid's Reception Folders

I've been soo busy and haven't had time to update so here are a few photos of some things I have been working on.

These are the luggage tags that will be sent to the guests once they make their reservations.
Front:


Back:


I've tried every possible way to laminate them and nothing has met my ideal so they will not be laminated. I ran the layers through my sticker maker and they are held on with permanent adhesive and that's the best I can do! They are more a novelty, as they don't have personal info on them.

Here are the folders for the kids for the reception to keep them busy!
Thanks to Dolly, my cricut machine and my sticker maker.

These are the coloring pages for the inside (they were free with my coke reward points):

Each folder will have one of these pouches to contain the crayons/markers:


The little kids will also get these in their folders:


For the older kids:


And for the little little kids between 6 months and 15 months they will get a set of three little disney board books. What does everyone think?

Planning Session Trip

Alright here goes...here are a few photos to start our PS trip.

Our itinerary for the trip included:
Arriving Sunday. We were both so excited for this trip!


We headed over to the YC to get photos of our ceremony site as our room was not ready (which was understandable it was only 9:30am). To our surprise there was a ceremony just about to start!


We decided to park ourselves (we'll I decided we should watch) on the bench as far as we could but close enough to "see" what was going on. The bride thanked us for attending her wedding and I told her she looked beautiful. Don't know if she was a disbride or not but it was 10/10/10
While sitting there a lady walking by was like that looks like a nice spot for a wedding. I said "were getting married there next April." It was pretty funny!


It was so helpful to see her ceremony as now we know where the guests and Rick will walk out from as well as my sister and I.

After her ceremony ended we decided to walk to our NEW reception spot of the Croquet Lawn. I wanted to see how long it would take to walk there!
Rick took on the job of the timer and it took 5 mins. walking at a leisurely pace.


We have arrived!


We just wandered around the BW to waste some time and there was an event happening at Jellyrolls!


This concludes our 10/10/10 wedding stalkings.

We then headed back to AKL to check in - and were met with the research department asking if we wanted to participate in a survey. Which we agreed as we would be making a whopping $25 disney gift card. Little did we know how much time it would entail and we haven't finished it as of yet - although I am thinking it's too late to complete now! We had to keep track of all spending, locations we visited on site and off site, hot many fastpasses we used, how many shops we walked through and many more details!)
Here was our diary:


My best friend from HS arrived late Sunday night with her BF - Rick was just getting over a cold and tired (we had gotten up around 4am that morning for our 6:30am flight) but I was running on excitement to see my friend and met her and Dan at the MK for EMH. We stayed until closing at 2:00am. More to come....

Everything looks great for the recent posts. I especially love the Minnie and Mickey silhouettes on your luggage tags.

If you tried regular lamination on the luggage tags and didn't like it...go to Walmart and get the clear adhesive shelf paper. (it is also called "peel and stick laminate" and you can find it with the shelf paper...it is a duck brand product, or at least the one I use is. You will get a large roll that you can use on tons of things and it is around $5) Half of the projects that I make, I laminate with an inexpesive laminating machine from Walmart, but when I want to laminate something and not have an 1/8 inch edge of lamination hanging off the project (or if I need to be able to bend the paper and/or wrap it around something, I use the shelf paper. You can add the shelf paper to the front and back of your tags and trim along the edge of the tag. It won't be as thick as regular lamination but it will keep the tags from being ruined if it rains and they will last a little longer.

This is also a GREAT product for covering hershey bar wrappers and water bottle labels! Your guests will think they were professionally made.

Hope that helps!

Erin! I love love LOVE all of the new DIY stuff! Absolutely amazing....Do you mind if I barrow some of your ideas ?...I was also thinking of doing DIY luggage tags since my 1st idea will not work. I was originally thinking of doing a custom type iron on but discovered that they do not work well with the types of bags we got for our welcome bags (they are a nylon type of matierial).
