    Oh my goodness, Faith--Sparkly things!!! :love::laughing:

    What about throwing sequins or metallic confetti? They wouldn't be as messy as glitter, but they're still sparkly!!! :goodvibes

    Such a cute idea! Fun fun fun too. Being glitter obsessed I think this would make a wonderful addition to your big day! Plus your guests will love it.

    Happy Sunday ladies!

    Engagement Picture Plans and Outfits​


    We are taking our Engagement Pictures on November 20th! We are so so excited. We are taking the pictures at our local Zoo (the place where we were supposed to have our wedding!). We decided we're going to have two outfits: a fun, themed outfit and a normal, casual outfit.

    For our theme pictures, we decided to wear safari-esque attire! Max and I love dressing up (Halloween, Comic-con) and figured that this would make for some fun engagement pictures!

    My safari attire is a simple belted green safari dress like this one:
    [​IMG]

    I'm looking for lace up boots but I don't know where I'll find them! If I can't find them, I'll wear flats.

    Max got this shirt which he will wear with khaki pants, boots, and belt:
    [​IMG]

    He's also looking for a hat to complete his outfit!

    As far as our normal pictures go, we are taking them at the park next to the zoo and will probably just wear jeans and nice shirts. Can you tell what set of pictures we're more excited about? :lmao:

    Our photographer is GREAT and I can't wait to see the pictures. They're shooting our wedding too!

    Sand Ceremony Vase​


    In other wedding related news, we bought our Sand Ceremony Vase! I had a 50% off coupon at Michael's which meant this baby was $12!

    [​IMG]

    We are going to get simple glass vases for the rest of the set. We aren't sure what color sand we want yet. Maybe coral and teal-- to match the S/D? I love coral and he loves blue so it might be a good combo!

    Bridal Party​


    We debated for a long time on what to do about having a bridal party. Too many people would be offended by our choices and for a while we figured we'd have no bridal party. Then I got to thinking... "we get one wedding day and even if I have to step on some toes, I want certain people up there!" and so, we decided to have a Maid of Honor and a Best Man.

    [​IMG]
    Elizabeth is my MOH and my best girlfriend. We became best friends our sophomore year of High School! We both love Disney, baking, movies, and just spending time together. She now lives in Colorado and I'm in Florida which is tough but we email, Skype, text, etc.

    [​IMG]
    Patrick is Max's BM and brother. I've known Patrick for as long as I've known Max (obviously! :laughing:) and he's a lot of fun to be around. Max and Pat are pretty close so this was an easy choice for Max!

    Neither have been officially asked.. as in with cards and presents but I did ask Liz and well, Max didn't ask Pat yet but we're sure he knows it's a given. :thumbsup2

    Next up is to decide on their attire!

    Max also has a sister who is a talented musician and we are thinking of having her play UP's "Married Life" song on the ukulele as we exit. :thumbsup2

    Not Wedding Related Updates​

    We are going to visit Mickey!! We are booked at POP Century for November 11- November 13!

    Friday: Max doesn't get off work until 5:30 so we'll stop to eat and then hit the road around 6ish. We'll probably get in around 8:30. Depending on how tired we are, we may go to the Festival of the Masters at DTD or we'll just go to the room.

    Saturday: EPCOT! Food and Wine Festival! Woohoo!

    Sunday: the Festival of the Masters (Max and I LOVE Disney art) and home!

    Other than our trip, I'll just be doing homework!

    Thanks for reading along everyone! :grouphug:

    I loooveee your zoo outfit! It's ADORABLE! <3

    And your sand ceremony vase was quite a steal. I agree with you about BP--- if people get offended, oh well. They can get over it.

    I'm glad you get to go see Mickey so soon! I -wish- I lived in driving distance!

    So glad you like the zoo outfits!! We wanted something fun!

    You're right-- people can get over it! Now, if only I had the courage to tell them that when they fuss.. :lmao:

    You should move to FL and we could go visit Mickey together! :cool1:


    Ahh!! Too cool! Maybe we'll have to meet up that day!

    Hi lovie! I think you look great!! And it's an "ugly sweater"?? I actually really liked it and so did my mom!! :rotfl: If you want me to switch out the picture, just tell me which one!

    Love you, MOH!


    Thanks girl! I really hope the e-pics looks good! Thanks for the Bridal Party support!

    And, I'm pretty sure EVERYONE has joined now! I LOVE it! :cheer2:


    I hope you have a great trip!! I can't wait to sail on the Dream!

    Thanks Victoria!! :hug:

    Ohh, great idea with the poppers. I didn't realize that we were allowe to toss stuff. I've been considering Mickey confetti for a while now but didn't think it would be allowed. I didn't realize that the Food & Wine fest is that weekend! Woohooo! We'll be there too for our Il Mulino menu tasting. Maybe we'll see each other walking around the swan!

    Hey! If you can't find a safari hat, you could always pop over to Animal Kingdom (or maybe even Animal Kingdom Lodge) when you're down here and see if they have one!

    When I asked Karen she told me you could pretty much throw whatevver you want. Mickey confetti is a good idea too!! I wonder where you can get that...? Party City?

    Hopefully we'll bump into each other!:thumbsup2
    You are a genius!! :worship: Great idea!!

    Thanks Chilly!!

    Jilian sweetie - Yes, you can more or less chuck whatever you want!! If you remember, our confetti was amixture of rose petals and little paper hearts cut from pages of fvourite books, and we had not problems!!!

    Faith sweetie - It is all coming together so well now!!! Loving the outfits!!! Such fun!!

    You can make your own Mickey confetti or you can buy it on etsy. I bought a Mickey head hole punch to make mini mickey heads (I have a castle one too). It will probably take me from now until the ceremony to get enough confetti though!

    Joanne, now that you say that I remember it!

    Those poppers look fun but I would probably steer clear of glitter. I love the idea of mickeys or castle confetti. Love the safari dress!

    I see you on the facebook group all the time so I had to come and check out your PJ! I am so glad I did because I can already tell from this description about yourself that we have a lot in common! My passion is in reading as well - I'm a certified English teacher but currently getting my master's to become a librarian :thumbsup2 I am a huge Harry Potter nerd! :wizard: (and obviously Disney too!) I love scrapbooking, I sing in my car and my house all the time... okay, basically that entire description of you could be applied to me, lol! :lmao:

    Anyhow, I am off to read the rest of your PJ :goodvibes
