Hmm. When I was looking into Narcoossees and contacted Disney catered events I mentioned to them that it was a vow renewal and they didn't seem to mind. Maybe if would have been different if I had said wedding? I even told them that we were renewing our vows at the Swan and wanted to do a meal after. I guess it all depends on who you talk to. In the end, that is why I chose to do a dinner with a restaurant not owned by Disney. It was annoying to deal with Disney catered events and get a different person and a different answer every time. I wanted the same contact person each time and I wanted that to be a person who knew what he/she was talking about.

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

Teresa sweetie
You would certainly have to go through DFTW to use any of the convention rooms or ballrooms. I can't speak for Narcossee's, as I have never spoken with them, but I am fairly certain that if you make a regular ADR at their restaurant, you can wear your dress.
In any restaurant (which is not in a theme park), you CAN absolutely wear your dress!!! No question - I have done it myself!!! Even restaurants where you utilize their private rooms (maybe not the rooms used by DFTW, but the others) have no problem with this!!! I was all set to use the private room at Citrico's until our party became too big!! You just book what you require through the usual channels. I was in regular contact (by e-mail) with the manager of Citrico's well before my booking window, and she actually made the reservation for me when my window opened up!!!
As regards photos around the resorts with Randy - no problem again. We had photos at BLT, Swan, Boardwalk and GF on our VR day and the Poly during our TTD session. A good way to accomplish this in a limited time, is to do a first look and do some photos before the ceremony. Know that you have every right to parade about in your dress in as many resorts as you like!!! Randy is well versed in all the rules, and very respectful of them. Anything he says is okay, is okay!!!!
The characters would probably have to be booked through your wedding planner (whoever this ends up being) and, if you ran with the Swan, would, therefore, have to appear at the pre-reception on site, as I doubt that any restaurant you use (unless booked through DFTW), would be able to arrange this. I may be wrong though (it wouldn't be the first time).

Just checking in... I know Teresa has been working this quite feverously and I am thankful for that (I think I would pull my hair out making me prematurely bald if I had to do this).

But I also wanted to say thank you to each of you who have been helping us plan our wedding. I truly appreciate your assistance. Each of your insight is helping us to come up with the best wedding possible!!

Take care, Greg

Hi Greg!

Wedding planning is making me prematurely bald! Teresa's really got her head in the game-- can't wait to see how magical your Big Day turns out!

Keep her sane and enjoy your week!

A Mostly Non Wedding Related Update

In the lives of Teresa and Greg not much has been happening since the thanksgiving holidays. In the way of the wedding there is not much to report and there probably won't be until after our december trip. Here are the few things that have happened:

Greg and I decided to go with a Swan/Dolphin ceremony with a reception at Fulton's crab house.

We have a meeting set up with Diana from Just Marry the same day we meet with Marian from Fulton's.

Some of you have read about my concerns with not having Karen but Diana seems like she does not have as much on her plate and I feel like I may get more attention from her because of this which makes me kind of excited. I spoke to Diana over the holiday week and she is super excited about the peacock christmas theme we have going on. She loves my inspiration pictures and I really am excited to meet her next month.

I am making the theme of the wedding a peacock christmas because I think it is really pretty I am just going to have hints of vinylmation here and there and the same for star wars.

I am currently shopping for videography I am tempted to go with STVS for the price but I am getting swayed by Natalie's sneak peek to go with Trinity wedding. Anyone have any other suggestions?

In non wedding news:

Greg and I discussed the issue of children over the holidays. This is a big step for me because I have been not anti children for a long time but I just have not been sure how I feel about this. Greg really wants children he has a daughter from his previous marriage but he really wants the chance to have a family again. Can you blame the guy? I mean most guys tend to not be so big on the family thing or at least most of the ones I know it takes them a long time. So I feel very fortunate to have a fiance that wants children. I have actually had a change of heart and I have decided I really want to have kids and sooner than I had expected. We want to wait until after the wedding but probably not much longer after that.

With that we decided that the second bedroom of the apartment is going to be turned into the baby's room but for now it will be the study but we are calling it the baby's room. We went out to go baby stuff shopping to see how it would make us feel and we just kept getting more and more excited. We found lots of stuff we like and we bought our first baby blanket it has baby simba on it and it is white with brown edges.

Our first holiday together:
This thanksgiving was our first holiday together and he spent it down here with me and my family. This was very special to me and meant a lot. We had a great time and he even helped me and my grandfather make the dressing. I think we might have a few pictures some where. I had the whole week off this past week and it was really nice having all that time to spend with him. He still travels a lot for work and is at home 2 weeks out of the month and sometimes more than that. He is still mostly out of chicago for work which is where he lived when we met at Disney. He has since moved down here and is still moving.

We put up our two christmas trees and our lights the tuesday before thanksgiving. I need to take some pictures and put them up on here. We got lights for outside and i got a Snoopy with reindeer horns to put up. I love it! Greg is like the guy from National Lampoon's christmas vacation he is obsessed with lights. We put lights on windows so they shine thru and we got a small tree to put in the window. The cool thing about our christmas trees is they are Black and Purple. The black tree has multi colored lights and the purple tree has white lights.

The best part about christmas is that we picked an ornament this year and then we started a series at Hallmark. I work there part time so we started the new Pixar series which the first one is from UP which I know so many of you love. The ornament we picked is the one called Ode to Joy it is beaker from the muppets. When we were at WDW during our October/Engagement trip we bought two ornaments for our first tree one was the toy story alien with the sorcerer hat and the other is Wall-E and eve with christmas lights. Hooray for christmas decorating

Anticipation for our christmas trip:
We are getting excited for our Disney christmas trip it is only 24 days until we leave which is super exciting! Not much to share there just that I need to cancel our site visit with Disney. I am really looking forward to seeing all the resort decorations and especially the new decorations including stitch at the boardwalk resort.

Well I hope you guys have a great week and I hope you are participating in the christmas card exchange and secret santa!

Happy Holidays,
Teresa

PS: Greg just told me as I was writing this (which he didn't know I was doing and update) that he wrote on the PJ too today! Hooray I am so glad he finally got involved. Now you guys get to meet him!

Hello Teresa! Your PM made me laugh--- so look what I am doing! :D

-Iíve never been to Fultonís! But the outside is pretty. I think itís a good decision.
-The team from Just Marry just seems so awesome. The Swalphins definitely have a good thing going.
-How do you do a Christmas Peacock? I am intrigued!
-And I love that you are preparing for a baby already. ☺ Chris and I are certainly not having children, just dogs--- but I think itís sweet that Greg wants more kids.
-That must be difficult having Greg travel so much! Chris and I have only spent a handful of days apart in the past six years!
-I am also kind of jealous you work at Hallmark! I LOVE all of their Disney quote plaques; and Chris LOVES anything and everything Snoopy.
-Thereís a Stitch at the Boardwalk resort?! I need to google this!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the peacock theme and colors that go with it, very different than anything I have seen at a wedding and the colors are just beautiful!

* I love the pics for a Christmas peacock wedding!
* I also think a reception at Fulton's will be cool. I've never been there either but the outside looks really neat and the food always looks delicious.
* It's pretty exciting that you're already planning for a baby We plan on waiting a few years but I would like to have kids eventually. It's great that your DF is so enthusiastic about kids!

That peacock theme is awesome! I love the bright colors together.

LOL @ Swalphins.

Congrats on deciding to start a family together, how exciting! I have 3 kiddies of my own and becoming a mother really is one of the most amazing experiences. One word of caution: be careful accumulating too much baby stuff. When my H and I were trying to conceive our first child I bought a lot of stuff out of excitement and it took us over 6 mos to get pregnant (with a loss thrown in there). After a while looking at all of the baby stuff only made me sad and served as a reminder that I wasn't pregnant. Hopefully you don't have conception trouble but I just wanted to mention it. After my experience I forced myself to wait until I was very pregnant before shopping for baby stuff again.

~Oh wow!! Those pictures are GORGEOUS! I absolutely LOVE the first one! ~And congrats about the baby! Since I'm older-ish (31) I thought I wanted a baby right away, but it turns out that I am going on a girls trip to Asia in the summer and I don't want to have to worry about traveling while pregnant and I want to be able to eat whatever I want (sushi!) so we're going to wait until at the least the end of the summer to start trying
~ And what are these Disney quote plaques??? Can you see them online?
