    Hi, Bethie!

    Coming out of lurkdom....I LOVE your plans and cannot wait to see how everything turns out!

    I adore looking at planning journals, even as a happily married lady, and I have my fingers crossed we will get to hear all about everything when you get back!

    Have a Great day!

    Dee,

    Thanks once again for all your very kind words. I can't wait to meet in November. Hope all is well with you.

    That's too funny that we keep looking at the same dresses. I randomly found it, so it made me very happy.

    I got early photos of the hat and it is amazing! It shipped today so I should have it soon. :cool1:

    Ortho appointment tomorrow. I will keep you posted.


    Thanks, Rebecca!

    I love the sneakers. I would have loved to have done something like that the first time around, but my Nana would have disowned me. :lmao: And she meant it! The comfy shoes are a must for me! Just glad I found really pretty ones.

    I have had a ton of fun doing all this stuff. I am not typically very crafty, but I think I may do a little bit more from now on. I will definitely be scrapbooking the whole thing. :scratchin

    Thanks, Andrea! I hope we get to meet up when I am there! Would love to meet you.

    Thank you for still following along!

    Deena,

    You have had alot going on recently, so I will forgive you. :lmao: Thanks for catching up! We will definitely meet up while I am there. We have 12 days to figure it out. Hopefully, the Big River Grille works out on the 8th.

    Thanks Juli! Can't believe that we are both right around the corner from our events. Wow!

    Hope your list is getting smaller! Can't wait to see all your pics.

    Thank you so much coming out of hiding! I will definitely post all about it when we return.

    Thank you so much! It's almost here!!!

    Wow! 4 weeks from tonight we will be in Orlando having dinner at Coral Reef with Amanda and her husband. Can't believe we are that close!

    Knocked a lot of stuff off the list recently, I am definitely on track to be done early and have everything shipped out before Halloween. :cool1:pixiedust:

    One of the things I have knocked off are some postcards for the welcome bags. Another bride on the facebook group something similar and I just loved them. I modified them to make them more us and came up with "Wish Postcards"

    We couldn't decide on which photo to use for the front, so we made 2 versions.

    Here is the back

    I also picked up the t-shirts that we are giving our guests in their welcome bags. I got everyone's size on the pre-rsvp, but order a couple extra in each size just in case someone needs to change. We are also bringing one to the reception for people to sign.

    I have decided that etsy is the best and worst thing in the world for brides. There is so much there that suddenly I need! Like these babies....they are for the reception and then the dessert party. I absolutely love them!

    We also decided to tackle making Bride and Groom baseball hats with ears. We followed lurkyloo's instructions and CityGirl's great advice on the badge magic and gave it a whirl. I found a seller on etsy who could embroider the hats with the Disney font and we got a regular set of ears for Paul and I got the bridal ears that are the hat, not the headband. It took us about an hour, but we really like what we came up with.

    Friday is our actual 10th anniversary. We are headed down to Washington, DC on Wednesday to celebrate. We have high tea booked at the Mandarin Oriental and dinner at the Capital Grille on Friday. Very excited. Won't be able to do as much as I hoped due to the foot, but we have been many times before, so it's all good. We are meeting up with some other DisBrides and their DF's on Sunday and I am really looking forward to that.

    More updates coming soon.....Thanks for continuing to follow along

    The postcards are so cute. I hadn't seen these before. Also, love the baseball caps. Are the etsy purchase mini flags for guest to wave when you are departing after the VR? At first I thought they were pixie sticks. Shirt colors are awesome too. That was alot of work I bet!

    Happy Anniversary!! (a little early) I hope you have a very romantic wonderful weekend in DC. The foliage should be beautiful! Would love to see pictures when you get back.

    Bethie, I just had to edit to add.... I was showing DH this update (pushing for baseball mickey caps) his response? Oh, yeah, cool. But...no... she is wearing a Jets shirt. I calmly scrolled down to show him Paul. funny. Then my son walked in, so I showed him. (asked him if he would make them for us. hehehe). His response? " WAIT, Mom, she's wearing a JETS jersey" ! hahaha DH & I both started laughing. Just thought you'd get a kick out of that.

    Thanks, Dee. I really love how the postcards came out. They were a pain at times, but worth it when they were done. :) The flags are actually on straws for the drinks. I thought they were really different.

    DC has been great. I will definitely post some pics when we get back. Anniversary is going well so far. Room service breakfast, high tea this afternoon and dinner at the Capital Grille tonight. And hopefully a Cardinals win over the Nats.

    Love the story about my Jets attire. That's awesome!!! Is he going to make the hats???

    Can't wait to meet you in a few weeks. Hope all is well.

    Thank you, Juli! I can't believe we are this close either. I freaked out a bit when I noticed today that my countdown no longer has months on it! Crap!!!

    Sorry, should have posted the post cards earlier! :rotfl:

    Can't wait till Sunday! So looking forward to meeting you.

    Just 2 more days!

    Thanks so much! I am happy to be getting down to the last bit.

    Thanks, Andrea. We are there from 11/5 to 11/17, so I am sure we will find something. Can't wait to meet you!

    Glad you are having a nice anniversary! Sounds wonderful. :)

    I don't know if he will make the hats or not. We'll see.

    I just posted a thread, but if you don't mind... donut flambe... cinnamon or glazed? Yours at the tasting looked so delicious! thanks.

    4 weeks from tomorrow! YAY! Can you believe it. I still haven't finalized my DP menu. My poor planner, but she is soooo patient with me. I can't imagine what I would be like planning all you have going on! Probably something like this...
    :faint:

    I hope you continue to enjoy DC!pixiedust: Happy Anniversary!

    Bethie, it has been way too long since I've checked in here! But everything you're doing looks amazing. You have so many good ideas and great projects. Your guests are so spoiled and lucky, I'm totally jealous! Also, Etsy was still relatively unknown when I was wedding planning (at least, I didn't know about it). I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing - I probably would've found plenty of cool stuff but spent a lot more money!

    You are getting so close now, I'm so excited for you! Less than a month!

    We are back!!!! Thanks everyone for the good wishes. We had an amazing time. Had a couple of bumps (mostly guest related, which I will talk about when I get to those parts), but overall it was everything we wanted. Most of our guests are asking when we are doing it again. :) We are already thinking 15, maybe 20. :rotfl:

    I am still waiting for all the professional pictures, including our last minute MK shoot. (Big thanks to Dara at DPS for making it possible!) I might start my trip report before I get them, since we were there for 4 days ahead of time. I still have to upload our photos, but hopefully will be getting to it soon. We also took advantage of PhotoPass and got the CD, so I have those too.

    I do have a sneak peek from our VR day from DPS and our shoot with Regina. We love both of them!!! Can't wait to see the rest.

    Be back soon with an update. I still have some items that never got posted before our event, so I will get those up too, since I love them. :)
