I've been putting off starting a PJ for the past 6 months b/c I was going to wait until we booked with Disney but I bought my dress today so I feel like a real bride now! Before I get to that, I shall share some background info! Mike and I met way back in August 1998 at Band Camp! Anywho, we started dating our Junior year of college! Our first date was April 17, 2004. The Proposal Mike and I went on our first vacation together this past April. Our first night there (exactly 4 years from our first date) he surprised me with a Wishes! cruise. It was just the 2 of us on a boat meant for 10! He told the driver he was planning on proposing during the fireworks. She was great! (If any of you plan on doing a Wishes cruise, her name was Rose.) She drove us around and told us all about Bay lake and all sorts of things. It was amazing. Then she took us to see the water pageant which was great! Then the fireworks and the proposal. It really was magical! She was so excited b/c no one had ever proposed on her boat before. She called her boss and asked for permission to dock at the wedding pavilion so we could get a shot at picture point! The Plans We decided to wait 2 years so we can save up enough money for the wedding and a down payment on a place to live! We originally wanted to do April 17 b/c it was not only the day we got engaged but also our first date! Anywho, April 17, 2010 is a Saturday and well, we can't afford a saturday wedding! So it will be sometime around then! We really like the wedding pavilion and are 100% set on it! For the reception we really like the Living Seas but I'm a little concerned it might be too dark! I've always envisioned a bright, airy look to my reception! We will see! The colors will be Purple, Pink and Champagne! My sisters aren't exceptionally thrilled with purple dresses but i am set on Purple and Pink, Bright Springy colors!
