Valerie and Jeff - 5/7/11 *WP/GF/Italy* TR - WEDDING DAY: DESSERT PARTY!!

OK so here it goes....I have decided to start my own planning journal! I should have started this months ago, so we have a lot of catch up to do!

Let me start with a little bit of background information.
Jeff and I met in high school in the 10th grade and have been together ever since. We live in Northern Virginia, I graduated from college last spring and he is still working on his degree. Last December on our 7th anniverssary he proposed! Jeff knew that I always wanted to have a DFTW, so in February I scheduled an appointment to have a site visit with Joe.

THE DETAILS:
Date - May 7, 2011 (Eek, that is coming up faster than I thought..I have sooo much to do!)
Ceremony - Wedding Pavilion
Cocktail Hour - Whitehall Patio
Reception - Grand Floridian
Dessert Party - Italy Isola



Here are a few pics from our engagment:





This is where he proposed!

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !
DLRP is quite simply my spiritual home

Thank You!

We had our engagement party in May..so here is a few pictures.

These are the invitations that I made. These are going to be the wedding colors also.



And the cake (also made by me, I am addicted to all of the cake shows on tv...cake boss, ace of cakes..etc).



Me and my flower girl (Jeff's cousin).

The toasting flutes just came in and I absolutely LOVE them! My future mother in law bought them as a gift along with the server set that matches (I didnt get a picture of them).



Up next....dress shopping....

THE DRESS!!!

A few years ago I saw a dress on "Whose Wedding is it Anyways," that I absolutely fell in love with and knew that it would be my wedding dress (without even trying it on or seeing it in person)...but just to be sure I had to try on a couple hundred dresses (ok not really hundreds but probably 50).

And here are a few good ones along the way....



Weird face that I am making....







THE ONE! Unfortunately, I wasnt "allowed" to take pictures in this store...but I snuck one in the dressing room (that is why it is not that great of a picture )

Congrats on getting your dress! I think that they all really looked great on you but the one you bought is beautiful. It is a really unique dress, so pretty!

Thank you everyone for your comments!

MORE EXCITING NEWS! We just received our save the dates in the mail!! I was actually very impressed with the save the dates that Disney provided. I had originally thought that it was going to be in the form of an email....so pleasantly surprised!

Valerie and Jeff - 5/7/11 *WP/GF Wedding **Invitations!!**

Tell me which is your favorite!!

Ok, so I found these amazing invitations and I ordered two samples. One is a boxed style (more expensive to mail) and the other is a pocket style invitation. Both of them have swarovski crystals on them and the paper is shimmery. I like both a lot, but I am leaning toward the pocket style since it is going to be less expensive. Let me know what you think.

**Boxed Invitation**


**Pocket Style**

My vote is for the pocket style. Save a little on the invitations and spend the extra money on something else. Invitations are wonderful and they can set the mood for your wedding, but in the end...most invitations end up in the trash. A beautiful simple invitation is a great place to save a little on money.

Now if you have an endless budget...then send the box invitation.

I like the pocket fold invite as well, I'm doing the pocket fold and getting them from cardsandpoackets.com
