Krysten & Michael's DFTW - 9/9/10 - WP/Narcoossee's - 1 Year!! 09/09

Hello everyone,
I am a disney veteran, but new to this site lol I wanted to start a planning journal, and I am hoping that I am going about this in the right way (feel free to inform me if I have read into this wrong!).
So our wedding is set for September 9th of this year - less than 5 months to go!! I have already signed and returned my letter of agreement, and will be having my first planning session tomorrow. Unfortunately this session will be over the phone, as we are from Canada, and it would be quite a trip to make for a planning session lol
I am an organized person, but I have a hard time making decisions - so I have stuff planned out, but with a few alternates lol And with Disney, there are no limits to the options you have!
At this point,
- my dress is already paid for, and in my moms home. It fits perfectly except that it is a little too long, so I have to get the front hemmed a bit.
- I have started some pre-wedding party planning. Our guests are all booked at their hotels and ready to go.
- Save the dates have been received by our guests (sooo exciting).
- Our disneymoon accommodations have been booked
- We have our wedding scheduled at the Pavilion, with a reception to follow at the Grand Floridian
- I just bought my wedding shoes for a great deal on the weekend
- We have our attendants chosen

And I am sure that there is more, but I won't drone on about it for too long! I am starting to get excited now - the real planning has begun! And this site has been a huge help and inspiration! So thanks to anyone who read this, I am sorry if I did not do this properly, and I will post some more after my meeting tomorrow!

Thank you for the replies so far!! This is such an exciting time, and it is great to have some fellow Disney enthusiasts to share it with!

I am going to write some more about my planning now.

I will start at the beginning with us and our engagement. My name is Krysten, I am 23, his name is Michael, and he is 22. We met in high school, when he came to school elaborately dressed as Paul Stanley (from KISS). I wanted to know who he was (the whole place gave him a round of applause lol) so a mutual friend introduced us. We started talking online, and discovered that we have the same birthday (!) which gave us something to talk about, and things just went from there. We have been together for over 4 years now, and we bought our first home together last year - so marriage makes sense.

Our engagement is very simple, we were at home on a Thursday night, in pj's. I thought that he was mad or something because he just got up and left, but he came back a couple of minutes later with a ring, and asked me right then and there. It was sweet, and it is true to how we are. I cannot post pictures yet, but the ring is a princess cut solitaire in white gold, with baguettes on the sides.

We naturally told all of our family and friends - who were all very happy for us. My mom (almost immediately!) called our travel agent and asked her to send us information about a Disneymoon. (Quick side note, my family has been going to Disney for years, it is quite a trip from Canada, but we go as often as we can, and we are all huge Disney enthusiasts!). At this time, we were only thinking about doing a wedding at home, with a Disneymoon.

I started looking into wedding costs and venues locally, and was not overly excited about anything. Everything was so expensive, and not really special. We saw a few venues, they were nice facilities, but they had no wow factor - they were just like every other wedding that happens around here.

One day, I went onto my laptop and just started looking at Disney Weddings. With everything that I looked at, I got more and more excited. This wedding would be special, it would be very me/us, and it would be cheaper! It didn't take long to realize that a Disney Wedding was meant to be.

I will post some pictures of my ring and dress once I am able to.

Also, I had my first over the phone planning meeting today. I would much rather have been there in person, but that is quite a trip just for a meeting lol However, the meeting went well, I didn't have the answers to all of the questions (as I had hoped) but I had most things that she asked me. There are still a lot of things to work out, but things are going well so far.

I will post again soon, perhaps later tonight after my meeting to discuss some pre-wedding party stuff.

Thank you for reading!

So I have some pictures of my ring on my computer now that I thought I'd share. I am really happy with the ring - DF did very well!

It is so neat how many weddings they do, and how so many of us have wedding dates only a few days away from each other!! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding as well. I am excited beyond words haha How is your planning coming?
