    Your dress is beautiful. I'm considering getting sleeves like that put on mine. I couldn't find the dress I wanted with sleeves, so I had to go strapless. :)

    Thanks! I love my dress.

    My future MIL and FIL are coming on the cruise. I think they are just looking forward to everything. It is their first Disney cruise but not their first cruise.

    Feel free to ask anything about the cruise wedding, I will try my best to answer.

    Thanks!

    I agree ~ the sparkle is lovely.

    Thanks! If you want it, I would totally get the sleeves, I LOVE them. My dress is made to go either way, but I knew I wanted them. Once they were sewn on, it made the dress look so much prettier.

    Here's the wording I'm thinking about for the at home reception.

    Where should I put in the "Disney Dream" cruise part or is it necessary?

    I don't think it's necessary to have in there unless you're inviting people on the cruise and they need to know what ship to get on. When people see "Castaway Cay" most people will know it's a Disney cruise.

    I think the wording is just fine and the Disney Dream doesn't nee to be listed. It sounds very similar to mine.

    I borrowed ideas from the disboards and made passport invitations for the people going on the cruise.

    I am really pleased with how they turned out.

    I also mailed out 130 + invites for the at home reception.

    These were also DIY with inspirations from the boards.

    Love the passports! They look great! If I can ask, approx how much is it for your guests to do the cruise? Do they do a room block and reduced rate like a WDW wedding or is it the regular cruise pricing?

    For us it was regular cruise pricing. We didn't expect that many guests to come so we didn't want to go through the hassle of working with the Disney Groups person.

    Our personal total was just at $4570

    $3500 ~ Wedding
    $1070 ~ Cruise (Category 05D - Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah)

    Some of our guests got inside staterooms so their totals were less.

    Congrats on your upcoming wedding. Just got off the phone with Shanda and found out my date is available in nov 2012 for a vow renewal. Yours and others PJ's are going to be helpful. I love the passport idea..could you please help me with the instructions on how to do these-or where the template is. I ahve done the Epcot ones for my boys before. The boards has been great with helping me to make our cruises more memorable.

    Thanks.

    Kathi,

    Thanks! I have a planned update to this thread tonight. I have had my combined wedding shower/bachelorette party. And finished my shoes.

    Kara, (my BFF) came in town from Chicago and threw me an "Amazing Race" themed wedding shower/bachelorette party.

    She brought cookies! We used to have "Girly Beer and Skip Bo" nights in college (note: the skip bo cookies have our wedding date 9/17/11).
