Happy 2 month mark! (LESS than 2 months now!!)
Aww, you are so sweet! That comment made me so happy. I can't wait and I promise pictures!

Awww, it's the truth. We are FB friends so I've been peaking at your pics every now and then so I don't miss anything. LOL

PS- I also loved your bridal shower, it looked so fun and pretty. Very creative!

Having a rehearsal dinner at T-Rex is an awesome idea! I ate there for the first time last December and my son and boyfriend loved it! And I must admit I was geeking out as well!

You really are close now! It's funny, I joined the DIS in January 2011 and at that point 2012 seemed so far away! But now I know people planning weddings even as far ahead as 2014, and I know that will come sooner than you know it too!

I love that you're having your rehearsal at T-REX. I think it's totally fine to have it in the morning, whatever works! And I don't know if you've had it before, but that Paleozoic Chicken Sandwich is one of the best sandwiches I've ever ate. Jason loved it so much we had to split my plate In fact, it's because of him and that sandwich that we're going back to T-REX on our next trip! :lol: And the invites are hilarious!

Also, the Up card box is fabulous. I love it!

I just saw your thread, and I have always thought a Disney wedding would be so wonderful. I am curious, are you renting out the restaurant or just have a reserved section. And are the characters just there normally or are you paying to have them attend?

I don't suppose you could give a ballpark as to how much that would cost? (I understand if you don't want to).


I was just curious how it worked there. I never thought about a Disney wedding at the Swan.

Hi!

We aren't renting out Garden Grove but just have reserved the "upper section" of the restaurant. The characters are normally there for dinner so we are just reaping the benefit of characters without shelling out the $$. That said, they will, of course, rotate throughout the restaurant since they aren't there for us.

The entire wedding for 50 some people including all vendors, my dress, etc is running us about $10k. It can definitely be done cheaper- I've hired pricey vendors, bought an expensive dress, etc. Honestly, going the Swan route for a Disney wedding was the best way for us to go. SO affordable, great communication, and virtually no restrictions.

Thank you so much! I have a DD who wants to get married at Disney (but not until after college graduation) and we watched a Disney wedding show, but it was so expensive that I didn't think it could be an option for her. But this sounds like it might be doable if she and her guy really want it.

I hope you post pictures of the event, it is coming up soon! I will show her.

I never ever even thought about the Swan as a wedding location. BTW, is the minister who is doing the ceremony someone you know or someone the Swan is able to contact to do it for you? We aren't from Florida or anywhere near by, so we wouldn't know anyone there to ask to do it.

Thanks again!

I will for sure post some pictures!

Our officiant is someone from Orlando that we hired based on reviews on other brides.
