Hello, all I've been reading and posting for a few months, and our wedding cruise is in T-minus 273 days, so I suppose it's about time I start a PJ to share with my fellow DCL brides and other interested parties! My name is Jillian (25) and my DF is Michael (29) and we met about 4 years ago and started dating almost 3.5 years ago. We're having a long engagement, by the time we're married, we'll have been engaged for 2 years and 3 months! It took us a long time to figure out when and how we wanted to get married, but one day at work, Michael met somebody who had gotten married on a Disney Cruise, and we started researching and quickly booked our wedding cruise and sent out invites! We met through mutual friends in the Orlando/Lake Buena Vista (Disney) area. One bored day we decided to go (as friends) "Drinking Around the World" at Epcot, and about 3/4 of the way we decided that it's be funny if we got "Just Married" buttons (this was before they had Just Engaged Buttons or Happily Ever After buttons). But a problem arose, if anyone asked to see a ring, I didn't have one! So, we made it to the World Traveler at the International Gateway, bought a sterling silver mickey ring, then proceeded to France to have "engagement" photos taken. Now, remember that we weren't even dating at this time! He was working with MK Photopass at the time, and when GOOD photos are taken, they get shared (boasted!) throughout all the parks! So when Michael went to work the next day, everybody was asking him about his new fiance! Well, it was all good and fun- we started dating shortly afterwards with out little joke that since we were engaged, we had to get married before the 'world ends' on December 21, 2012 (Mayan Calendar ends...) Lo and Behold, we'll be getting wed on 09/14/2012! Well, there's a start! There will me much more to come, I promise!
