    I have been a long time lurker on here and since I started a PJ on my other site I thought it would be a good idea to start one here too. There are a few details that I will leave out, just to avoid giving too much info away. its really exciting that I actually get to start one. I've been reading everyone elses for a while now, I just hope mine turns out as beautiful as al the other weddings I've seen. A lot of ideas I've gotten from other brides so thank you ladies.

    Bestman: My twin brother M
    Groomsman: Sergio's Brother C.r
    Groomsman: our friend J.
    Ringbearer: My son .

    How did you meet: Ummm...I was dating his best friend.:confused3 He showed up one day at my work looking for my then boyfriend. My BF and I had just gotten into a fight because he was cheating on me I was crying as i walked to the bathroom and I ran into sergio, he wiped my tears and told me that he didn't like to see women crying, and that no man was worth it. 4 months later we started dating.:love:

    How/when/where did you get engaged: well it was very informal. We already had a civil ceremony a few yrs ago but being from a Catholic family it wasn't "real". We always talked about getting married "for real" and would go out ring shopping, we even went to bridal shows and open houses; We just never knew when it would happen. He decided we would get married in Disney after his first trip to WDW back in October. Then one Saturday we bought the ring and 2 days later we took a carriage ride and he gave me the ring, then went to eat at my absolute favorite restaurant (maggianos).

    Us at the restaurant:


    My Ring,:

    Italy Isola:

    **The last few are borrowed from another brides' wedding on here M&M***

    These are the 2 i am considering:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    this is my new idea for the centerpieces:
    [​IMG]

    Childrens Table: at the childrens party

    I made the vase, myself and after many trials I am happy with this one. I created this as a mock, the finished product will be more tailored. I plan on wrapping the sticks with white ribbon and the rice krispies will be provided by Disney. I tried making them myself but it was a disaster the mickey heads were all deformed. there will only be about 5 kids so i am thinking 10 treats is more than enough. Oh and there will be some feathers in there that I bought from white aisle during their moving sale.
    [​IMG]

    Guest book: the platter comes with a signing scribe that has a diamond point. The website says that you can cook and serve with it and it will not get damaged.
    [​IMG]

    Ring Bearer Pillow: Except the ribbon will be a light blue (My son will be the ring bearer)
    [​IMG]

    My Tiffanys Toasting Flutes: (my ultimate splurge, only because I will probably never use these again...since I don't drink)
    [​IMG]

    Groomsmen will get these
    :
    **HAD TO REMOVE THESE, DON'T WANT MY BROTHER TO SEE**

    My M&M's will be packaged like this: (WE WIL BE USING THESE FOR THE BRIDAL SHOWER)
    [​IMG]

    The cake:
    this may change only because my mother thinks it should not have cinderella or the castle.
    [​IMG]

    This is the new idea for the cake: except it will be light blue instead of grey, ivory instead of white, with gold scrolls and it will be square
    [​IMG]

    and lastly a mock up of my invitations:
    Welcome party :
    [​IMG]

    I want to send these out in boxes wrapped in ribbon I just haven't found the boxes
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    *These are the new invites, we will layer the inside with blue and white and put a ribbon and buckle.:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Oh I almost forgot these are the announcements we sent:

    Thanks. I hope you don't mind that I used a few of your pics :confused: your reception was just so beautiful, I can't help but show off your pics. If mine turns out half as gorgeous as yours I'll be happy.

    Camara, everything looks BEAUTIFUL so far! I can't wait to see more pictues of you, your dress, shoes...EVERYTHING! Your ring is beautiful! You two are an adorable couple!

    LOL, that is how I met my Fiance' also...he was simi-dating a friend of mine...but just a for a few weeks. We actually tried not to get together (because that dating a friend thing can get stickey), but they ended up tricking us into a triple date. Crazy how things work out! :lovestruc

    First off, I love your story. It's so sweet... not the fact that your ex cheated on you but how he approached you... you know what I mean. ;)

    It looks like you did quite a bit of your wedding planning already! Congrats! I love the Mickey Mouse rice krispy treat center pieces. May I "borrow" that idea?

    Did you already "book" your date? I'm still waiting for that stupid 1 yr. mark before my chosen date to book it. :rolleyes:

    Wow, I was just telling vinnie that I would love to have the centerpieces be the mickey rice crispy heads (WE LOVE them and the flip flop ones) but we didnt know how much it would be! we were planning on going to IKEA the two days before to get some vases anyway...
    THAT LOOKS AWESOME!

    Thank you so much...I think the whole reason I persued a relationship with him after we were formally introduced was because of the way he approached me, I mean to come up to a total stranger and do that. :)

    I unfortuantely have not been able to book yet we are 14 months out and anxiously waiting, thats why I haven't done anything where I have to put my date, and I holding off on getting the flutes engraved until then.

    Feel free to use any of my ideas, I have borrowed a lot from other brides so I won't mind at all. It looks like you and I are getting married 1 day apart!!!! How exciting!!! Maybe I'll get to see you :) So have you started a PJ? are you going to? (hint, hint)


    Oh my goodness!!! I bought the vases from IKEA then I just etched the mickey heads on there and viola!

    Thank you! :)

    Thank you so much!!! I love those centerpieces, I went out and bought my own feathers because Disney wanted to charge $90 (6 of them come on 1 stick, but you can take them apart)

    Thanks!!!! I think they just look good in the picture, in person they were falling apart I may try it again I think I may ahve put too much butter ...:confused3


    On another note...

    I am so excited I finally booked Randy today. He was so wonderful, I told him what my budget was and he worked with me.

    Oh and I received my flutes on Saturday: (sorry I just love the box)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I plan on having them engraved but not until our date is definite.


    Oh and I bought my Tiara I just haven't received it yet. It looks taller than what they say it is. It is 1.5" tall - we'll see when I get it (Can't wait)
    [​IMG]

    I also bought a few other things and I made our thank you notes, but I don't have pictures with me, when I get home I will post them.
