i love it all.....can you believe I have never been on ellen's engery adventure. I whole heartedly agree that Epcot is seeming dated. It breaks my heart know that it was Walts dream for it to be futuristic. So sad.

I'm really bummed my bump didn' work last night. You know I will be there with you in spirit on your wedding right? Are you staying AoA??

Sorry about the job, though.

Thanks BethieTink and NoOrdinaryPrincess!

Today's project was the Kids Activity Book I'm giving them with some crayons and stuff to keep them occupied at the wedding.

A representative sample:

Juli,

I love the book! What a cool idea!

Getting closer! I am 9 days after you and starting to panic, just a bit.

Today is 1 month until the wedding and 28 days until we head to Florida and there's still so much to do.

Here's some stuff I have done:

Customized our guest book:


and pen holder:


Received the buttons that are going in the welcome bags:

I'm like 85% satisfied with these. The color of the yellow lettering of our names is off and it looks green.

Made a ring box with a cute little pillow inside:


Made our escort cards/favors:


I sketched out the peg dolls for our cake but I haven't painted them yet:


I made my bridal ear ball cap and posted a tutorial to my blog about it.


I made the groom ears too but haven't done the blog yet.

I made our table signs:

So, things left to do:

Clothing: Wayne needs his shirt and tie and some funky socks, I think.
The boys need dress pants, shirts and ties. Andy and Joey still need to get their Chucks. Lexi's dress is still not in from David's Bridal.

We have our marriage license paperwork from the Brevard County Courthouse. We need to get their notarized and back to Florida.

Payments left: We have the final payment to DFTW, which is actually basically just the taxes and service charges. I think we are coming in right at the $12K minimum and owe like $1200. We have the final payments to the photographer, videographer, officiant and makeup people.

I've written the ceremony and sent it off to Rev. Glynn Ferguson but we need to write our vows.

I have started on the kids' goodie bags including the bound coloring book (I tied them with ribbon, my stapler wasn't long enough!) and crayons and a top. I need a couple more goofy things (goofy, not Goofy) to throw in and I can finish those off with one of two options. I can either use Mickey on all the boy bags and Minnie on the girl bags or I can use the character for their table where they're sitting and put the kid's name on the bag. I can't decide which.

I need to finish off the welcome bags and mail them off to Florida for someone to distribute. Right now they have the door signs in them and I've carded the buttons for each party. I want to do a newsletter with information for the guests about stuff. I think I'm going to go to Costco and get some snacky things to throw in. What else should I put in? The bags themselves are pretty cool but rather large. They're the reuseable shopping bags from the Disney Store that I snatched up on clearance.


Cute, right? You'd be happy to get a bunch of goodies in one of these?

The last big project I have is our Halloween costumes. I want to smack myself in the head. We're doing MNSSHP the night before the wedding, on Halloween. I must not have been thinking straight when I made that decision. So we're planning to have the kids out late the night before our wedding and I have to have us all dressed and cute and then the makeup ladies from Beaute Speciale are coming at 6:45 in the morning! Arrrgghhhh!

We're going as the characters from Up! Wayne and I will be Carl and Ellie from the Zoo. Andy will be Russell and I'm basically just putting him in his cub scout uniform. Joey will be Dug and I'm going minimalistic on the costume- beige clothes, a headband with ears and some face paint. Same for Nathan, who will be Alpha. Lexi will be Kevin and I'm making her a rainbow tutu to go with a royal blue tee shirt and black leggings. I'll either do face makeup for her beak or if I can find one on an elastic, I'll do that, plus some peacock feathers on a headband.

The packing and organizing is a little overwhelming.

Wish me luck, ladies!

Finished the kids activity bags last night.

Here's my bags:


The character corresponds to the table where each kid is seated. Inside is the coloring book and a 24 box of crayons, a top, some silly bands, a Phineas and Ferb pen, a notepad and some bubbles.

Here's the inspiration shot from Pinterest:


We also went and got Lexi's dress pinned for alterations. It isn't ready until the week we leave, which is like 2.5 weeks away!!!!!

AARRGGGHHH!

We just got our DJ assignment: Steve Weinstein! I am excited! Today I am putting together our playlist! It's harder than I expected!

Thanks Bethie and Charliegirl!

SIXTEEN DAYS!!!!

This weekend I took our three little boys to the mall and their outfits for the wedding were purchased. What a hassle! Apparently, boys' suits only come in black and navy blue. I wanted tan or taupe. So instead of a suit, they're wearing tan dress pants, a white oxford shirt and a red clip on tie. They look adorable! Of course, all of the pants are way too long so I'll have to spend time this week hemming them all.

I still need to get a dress shirt and tie for Wayne. Lexi's dress is still being altered. I pick it up from David's on the 26th, I think. Still bummed I had to pay the rush alterations fee but oh well.

I've been working on all of the detail sheets for all of our vendors: photo, video, DJ... It's harder than I thought to make all of these decisions. I feel very flustered and pulled in different directions.

Our Halloween costumes are just about done. I need to sew my neckerchief. I need suspenders for Wayne and then I have to sew ears and tails for Dug and Alpha. My tutu for Kevin is amazing.

We leave in less than two weeks!!!
