Ack this was a great update, Allie! You are SO CLOSE EEEEEE!!!!!!!

First, I LOVE your flower girl. She is ADORABLE! Like, OMG. Her little flower girl rant--- HA! I love her (and I hate kids ).

I also LOVE those mickey ribbon wands! They look amazing; totally like something you could buy in a store. Actually, if they had that in a store, I would definitely buy it. And wave it around like a princess. Yep.

I might just be dumb, but I haven't the slightest idea what a wine box ceremony is; however, it sounds awesome, so I will assume it is. And your menu cards are sooooo pretty. :D

Good idea with the ring! And it's still a ring you can have forevs.

However, I have some awful news... the princess clutch is sold out at the Disney Store online. It was sold out at my local disney store too. I REALLY hope you can find one! <3

I love your idea for the ring! It's definitely the perfect thing until you find one that is just right for you. And good luck finding that clutch - I know it's been popular but I did see it about a week ago at a Disney Store in NY, so maybe it's still around at the one by you! Or they will get it in stock online again soon, hopefully

Allie - I just came across your PJ and I must say 1) Congrats and 2) WOW! I just love all your ideas. And your dress is just beautiful!

We had Tanis as our planner for our VR - she's awesome.

And if DH & I are still in Disney on your day - I might just show up at Sea Breeze to catch a glimpse. DH & I will be in Disney on 10/7 and will be leaving on the 13th!

Wishing you both much love & happiness!

Thanks!! Yay for less than a month! Isn't FG the most precious thing? She is a hoot!! And apparently, just like me when I was little. We have so much fun together! I miss her so much now that I'm here in FL and she's still in NC. Breaks my heart not to see her everyday!

First off, isn't FG just fabulous!? She is such a little diva. I swear she's smarter and more fun than a lot of adults I know.

I didn't know what a wine box ceremony was at first either. I had to google it. But it is awesome! You get a box, 1 or 2 bottles of wine and 2 wine glasses. Then you and DF write a letter to each other about why you love each other, how you feel about getting married, etc. then at the ceremony, you put it all in a box and seal it up. Now, if at any point in the marriage, if you are having trouble, or just ready to give it all up, before you call it quits, you open up the box, pour the wine, and take the letters into separate rooms. The idea is that hopefully, it will remind you why you are together and keep it that way! And if there is no trouble, on your 10th or 20th wedding anniversary, you open it up and celebrate! I thought it was super sweet! Speaking of which...I gotta go write that letter!!

Glad you like the wands! i stress so much about how my DIY turns out! I'm always scared that it'll look like a 3rd grade art project!

Ok, I'm not going to lie...I am seriously stressed and bummed about that bag!! I knew I should've snatched it up right away, but I let FH talk me out of it. Grr!! Why did I listen to a man about shopping?!? I'm going to call all the Disney Stores in the area, and hopefully I'll have some luck. There really isn't a store close by, but I am ready to go on a tour of Florida to get it if I have to! Cross your fingers! And thank you for giving me the heads up, so now I have a little time to figure something else out if I need to!

Hopefully I can find the bag at one of the Disney Stores around here! I've looked for SO LONG!! I'm so bummed! Well, there's always ebay! Where I can pay double the price for it, because I'm silly enough to want it that bad!

Thanks for reading my PJ and all your kind words!! I like Tanis a lot. She's sometimes hard to get a hold of, but I know she's super busy. But she goes above and beyond to make sure things are perfect. I've been really lucky and I'm so grateful for her!

We are getting married on the 13th at 10 AM...So by all means, if you are still around, come stalk us a bit!

10 More Days!!!!!!

ok....so I have ten days left, and I just realized, that I haven't updated in a million years! And I have lots to update, as I'm sure you can imagine. A lot of DIY projects and finalized plans, MOH and guest rants, stress, happiness, you name it, I've got it for you! But I really want to take some pictures of what I've been up to before I do a full on update. I have a feeling that from here on out, my "updates" will turn into "recaps" as I struggle to keep up. This time next week, I will be on the road to Disney, to meet up with my MaOH and flower girl for their first time to Disney World ever!!! So excited! I can't wait to share that with them. Especially my FG. She has already decided that "I want to live at Disney World. But I'm not sure that they will let me. So, when I grow up, I want to work there." There will be no living with her after she actually sees the place! Now if only everyone else were as excited as she is....(more on THAT later...do you feel a rant coming on? I do!!)

So I figure I'll go ahead and rant away and get my bridezilla out of the way, then I can get to the fun stuff of projects and planning. But right now, I need coffee!!! And then, this will be me:

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Go ahead and rant away, I know I had a few good ones before the wedding!

Aww!

Allie! Oh my goodness! You are so very close to the big day! Your wedding band is just beautiful and so creative, like everything you have done! Disney is such a wonderful and magical place and I think it's so sweet that you are getting a piece of jewelery that you can look at and not only will it remind you of what a beautiful special day your wedding day was but where it took place (not that you need a ring to remind you but it's such a cute and sweet idea).

B and I had our 1st planning session and it was wonderful. A whirlwind too but wonderful. If you have time check out my update: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2798263

Although I am sure you are SOOOO busy right now. You're so close and we are all so excited for you!

Your FG has no idea what she is in for...well maybe a little. It is going to be amazing for her. AND YOU!

I am with you on the wishing everyone was as excited. The debbie downers are quite the buzz kill. But don't you let them or anyone bring you down. You are going to marry the man of your dreams in the most magical place on earth in just a few days. As long as you and the future hubby enjoy it and are excited then that is all that matters. We are here for you.

Teaser pics!!

We are back! I'm a married woman!!! And as I predicted, I will have to do a few "recaps" to get you all caught up. I need to fill you in on the week before the wedding before I start on the wedding TR. I can honestly say that was the best and worst week of my life. While there were so many amazing and magical moments, there were just as many stressful and horrible moments to go with them! And while I am so so happy to be married, and loved most of the wedding week, I will say that at some points, I remember thinking, "It's a good thing I have a few days to calm down before I do my TR. Cause if I tried to do it right now, no one would EVER have a Disney wedding!" That's how bad it was at times! It will take me a while to muster up the energy to finish this PJ/TR, but for now, I'll leave you with a few pics to tide you over. Some of these DH took with his phone during our MK/Epcot photo shoot, and the others are from my mom. And sorry the pics are so huge, too lazy to resize! Enjoy!!!

On the way to the ceremony...I couldn't breathe!


Thanks for capturing this mom!
