Hi Evi,
I definitely understand that the external photographer thing can be challenging. Hopefully your next contact works out, but if not, I'm sure Disney Photography will do a great job. From what I've read from other brides, it seems like preparation can make a big difference. So go nuts on Pinterest, find shots you like, and make a list of the shots you want for the photographer--maybe even print out some samples. Also, I'm sure all of us on here will send tons of good photographer vibes your way

Thank you very much for the compliment about our bags. They're simple, but I like that about them. Now to just fill them up with goodies, hehe.

You should check $ Tree & Michael's for kids stuff. I've gotten coloring books, puzzles, swim goggles, and several other things all for a $1 each.

I'll be shopping around for a bit. I'm trying to get light weight items. I'm very conscious of the fact that I will have to transport everything to Orlando and then to Port lol.

Hello Ladies,

I need your advice on something. I'm trying to keep my guest count at 26 because I truly want to be married inside the Outlook Lounge. Here is my problem, my cruise isn't until 12/13 but the cruise is almost completely booked. When I called today I was told there are only 4 rooms in cat 4a and then they are all Concierge. everyone except for 2 couples who are invited have a confirmed reservation. I keep trying to explain that prices are only going to go up. But I haven't gotten an answer for either of them not even my bff. Every time I mention it she says, yeah I need to talk to my husband blah blah blah...don't worry you know were coming price is no object. I know my wedding is a year and 5 months out. I'm worried that by the time they decide there won't be any cabins left and if they aren't going to come I'd rather invite someone who is going to come. I've notified everyone with so much notice because I wanted people to be able to request time for work if needed and didn't want the price of the cruise to be an issue. How have you dealt with this?

I think it's DEFINITELY urgent that they book NOW unless they want to pay those ridiculous prices for concierge! If they don't act soon, they'll miss out altogether, no matter IF "money is no object" That's another reason I was very very persistent about booking an off-season cruise- there's still dozens of rooms on my ship and it sails in 48 days! November & December cruises are always busy because of the holidays, March-April are always busy because of Spring Break, and June-August are always busy because of Summer Break... I would get on them every day until they book it! Best of luck, I can't imagine NOT having my BFF with me on my big day! I'm already half heartbroken that our Best Man got stationed in Korea so he can't make it. Michael's NEW BM is somebody we've only known for a year

I'll call her in the morning. I hate feeling like she's not going to come. I also feel like I know if I invited another couple they would have already booked so I guess that parts bugging me a little.
I can't foot the bill to reserve there rooms we've already done this for his parents, another relative and we're paying for photographers room. Its just not in my budget to put a deposit on those two rooms.
Fingers crossed they get on the ball soon.

Thats super sweet about your df friend filling in. I'm sure he knows the situation so its actually really cool that he's willing to take on the role. I'm not doing moh or best man. To much drama already lol.
Congratulations on making the move to open an Etsy shop all I can say is Yay!!

Hi Evi,
I can completely relate to this situation. I had something similar with my best friend. Prior to DF and I getting engaged, I had thrown around prospective wedding ideas if and when he proposed with my best friend. She loved the idea of DCL, and kept saying how much everyone would love it and she'd definitely be there. Cut to when I am actually planning a wedding on DCL, I ask her to be in the bridal party, and she drops on me that I should have planned something locally because it's unfair of me to expect people to use their vacation time to come to my wedding. And also, she wouldn't be coming. I was very hurt initially, but I realized it wasn't worth permanently injuring the relationship over. That's the nature of weddings...some people, in my experience often those who you don't expect, will go over and above to be part of your special day, and some do not. I think the important thing is to move on from the negative, and focus on the positive.

Anyways, sorry for that long digression. I would like to echo Jillian's point about calling your friend, explaining the fact that so few rooms are available, and that it's very important to you that she be there and you're truly worried she'll miss out. As for whether to invite someone else in her place, I think I'd be hesitant to do that unless you're asking her to formally RSVP right now. If there are a few people who you really would like to invite, but haven't, I consider going ahead. There's usually a significant portion of people that can make it, so a lot of brides invite over their number of intended guests. We're also having quite a few people cancel deposits, which is a bummer.

Good luck, and thanks for sharing with us! Hope we helped! =)

But I know that there are some gift services on land that deliver floral to guest staterooms, so I don't know! I'm afraid to ask Meredith, because I'm afraid the answer will be "No". What do you ladies think???

Alrighty, let me know if you have any more questions!
I actually asked Shanda about freeze dried flowers before she left and the answer was no just silk/fake flowers are allowed. Sucks I know, i wanted to make my MOH bouquets out of dried flowers... Now im just going to make paper flower bouquets myself.

We used the fake petals you can get at Walmart and you could tell a difference when you held them but you could not tell a difference in the pictures.

If you are looking for Disney beach towels (not the thick ones you can buy onboard) for you guest gift bags, they have them in the outlet store for $6.99 and $7.99 with an additional 30% off. Another 10% off if you use your Disney VISA.

Hi, all!

I got an e-mail yesterday with my table arrangements- it looks like I got my Table #82!! I've got the one 10-top, three 6-tops, and five 4-tops. I made a spreadsheet to keep myself organized and once I had a seating plan that suited me, my groom, and my mother, I e-mailed it to Meredith! I still don't know when or WHERE my event will take place because my party is so large... It's making me anxious! I get married in 44 days! I want to knoooow!
