I'm in love with the Nina Electra, but go with what you really love. I think it's great that the height issue isn't a big one for the groom, so, if he's okay with it, then go with it. I'm the same height as my DF and he has encouraged me to wear the shoes I want, no matter how tall they make me.

You can always take the shoes off for some of the photos if you want photos where you are shorter than the groom.

I am, too! I think the Nina Electra is more my style. We're actually going to be barefoot on the beach, so I would only be wearing them at the reception and during our MK/HS photo shoot. That's great that your fiance has encouraged you to wear the shoes you want, too! I know several guys that don't want their fiance wearing shoes that make them taller than their groom.

Hi there!
Not sure if you know it or not, but you can design your own Nina shoes on their website! When you look online, they have the Elektra in 3.25" and 4" soo if you love the shoe, you could get it a little shorter!?

http://ninashoes.com/design-your-own-shoes&parentID=245

You can also change all of the colors of the shoe- the bow, the sole, etc. Very fun!

Keep us posted!

I did see that! It's so neat how you can customize everything! I thought about ordering them in the 3.25" heel, but the ones I ordered from Zappos were a lot cheaper, and the heels are only half an inch higher, so I think I'm going to keep them. Plus, I love how the soles are gold!

Can you believe our weddings are less than 100 days away?!

I think the white shoes would look better with the dress you've chosen, but at the end of the day no one is going to see your shoes very often, and comfort should be a major concern.

I decided the white shoes do look a lot better with my dress. After wearing them around the house to "break them in," I think they'll be comfortable enough for the 4 hours I'll be wearing them. I am going to have some white flip flops handy just in case, though.

Cake/Cake Topper

We finally managed to find the perfect Ariel & Eric cake topper on Ebay!! I it! It is the WDCC "Two Worlds, One Heart" figurine.



Our cake is a three-tier "Happily Ever After" cake in white, with the writing in silver. They are also going to scatter pastel seashells (probably fondant or candy) around the cake.

The bottom tier is going to be yellow cake with Bavarian cream filling, the middle tier is going to be yellow cake with tropical mousse, and the top tier is going to be red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. We like a little of everything.

Jr. Bridesmaids & Flower Girl Dress

My two Jr. bridesmaids and my flower girl are going to wear this dress. I it because it looks like mermaid scales, and is actually more aqua than it looks in the picture (our primary wedding color)! My mom found this dress from chasing-fireflies.com.

Table Names and Favors

We are having a small Wishes wedding, so we are going to have a sweetheart table and four round tables at our reception. Our table names are going to be Ariel, Eric, Flounder, and Sebastian. We're just going to order the cards through Disney Floral, with the character's picture and name on them.

For our favors, we're going to have the milk chocolate escort cards with the corresponding character on each one.

My Bouquet

I absolutely love Bridie1996's bouquet, so mine is going to be very similar to hers. Instead of the greenery and purple anemones, I'm going to have white hydrangea and stephanotis with pearl inserts.

Love the flower girl dress and the bouquet- so pretty! Great that you found the cake topper too!! I cannot believe we are so close now, it's creeping up so fast!! I think Disney Floral gets their table cards from Impressions, I have been debating getting our table cards from them too! Love the table names and that the edible favors.. yum!

Thank you! I can't believe our weddings are almost here, either! I'm pretty sure you're right about the table cards. I'm not very good at making things like that, so I figured we'd just get them through the floral department.

thank you for putting the link up for chasing fireflies. I think I am going to be able to find my future step daughter a better dress than what I was finding at alfred angelo.
