    Jeff and my food, we had trio – filet, chicken, and blackened mahi (don’t mind the rectangle plate, it should have been a round plate since we were leaving our plate chargers down till cake)
    [​IMG]
    We wanted to do the ice glass slippers for everyone, but with it being almost $30 a person we couldn’t fit it into our budget. So… we did one, and Jeff brought it out to me announcing that I must have dropped this glass slipper. We thought it was cute and that way our guests could see it. Practically everyone rushed over to me to see it. LOL

    Me dancing with Aubrey. She is so precious. She actually thinks that Jeff and I were Cinderella and Prince Charming and told all her friends at school in Maryland that she attended Cinderellas wedding and that she danced with Cinderella. Gotta love kids! But who am I to lie&. I love every single minute of her calling me Cinderella.

    YOUR WEDDING IS GORGOUS!!!! I was wondering where you got your custom aisle runner and how much it cost? i would like one just like that. Disney told me no because the coach is not licensed by them. please help. thank you.

    Thank you!!! More pictures coming soon!!

    Thank you!!! I got them here http://www.stumpsparty.com/party/Fairytale-Dreams-Centerpiece.cfm
    They were really great quality and bigger than I expected. FYI they have them in stock right now... but they go out of stock very often, so make sure you give enought time to get them in case they are out of stock. Seemed like when we ordered them it was like every other week they were out and then the next week they had them. Everybody at our wedding LOVED them!


    Thank you! We ordered it from Event Bella Designs for $350 with shipping, it was 54" X 75'. Disney will pin it down for you for $25. It was great quality because it is fabric and had a backing (which is what Disney reccomends). The only bad thing with the vendor was I didnt get it until the day before we left and that was giving them 8 weeks to make it. Just give yourself enough time if ordering from them and be sure they know when you need it by.

    We booked our Magic Kingdom/Epcot portrait session today!!!! We are doing it on Monday February 11! I actually even booked hair and make up with Ana again (thanks to my mom for paying for hair and make up for me). We are very excited! I requested Amy or Ty.... so unless they get called for a wedding we will have one of them!


    We also booked Port Orleans Riverside Royal Guest room for this trip! I am very excited to be able to stay at Disney another night!!!

    Yay!! Michelle that is so exciting! That's awesome that your mom is gonna pay for your hair and makeup. I'm sure you'll be glad you decided to go with professional service when you get your pics! I can't wait to hear about your experience. So question, did you already pay for this when you paid for your wedding or do you pay for it now? Thanks. Hope all is going well

    Yes I am very excited! I get to be a bride again :) We just sent the contract in yesterday, because we used outside photography for the wedding we could only book the photo session 45 days out and because we live super close we waited for a close day that way we could somewhat know which photographer they are giving us (no promises though). So... we didnt pay for it during the wedding, and they have our credit card number but they charge the day after the shoot.

    I will have to talk to him and see if he would have time to make one and if he would be willing. We had talked about possibly renting it to other Disney brides (since we live so close - 1.5 hours away - we could drive it over and drive it back home after - my dad is always looking for a way to be at Disney for the day, and he could hit the parks while your wedding is going on) The thing is if we rented it... you would have to find out the size of your cake. I had to find out the height of it total, the height of each tier, and the height of your topper. Just to make sure it would fit. We had a 50 person cake just FYI and it had some extra room. I have the stand sitting here at my house. What would you want to do? Where is your wedding held?

    The cake cutting set was $60 plus $20 for them to engrave it. They do have ones to rent, but you do not get to keep them and they will not engrave them.

    Hey Michelle!! So, your wedding is gorgeous! I'm loving all the updates so far. :)

    I have a question about the aisle runner. I'm on the Event Bella site now, and trying to figure out what/how to order a similar runner. (I basically want the same aisle runner w/the carriage you had, but I want to change the color of the font) Any help would be appreciated! :)

    I would be more than Happy To rent the cake table!! (For the right price, gotta stay on a budget). we will be down there early and my mom is always looking to drive somewhere, so if your dad didnt wanna waste the gas we could pick it up. and then she could bring it back the next day. or Whatever. my cake is almost identical to yours. even the castle topper. so it would fit! Our wedding is March 7th 2013 at the grand floridian ballroom. Its a noon ceremony so we would have to get it a day or two before then. we are flying in on the 4th monday. PLEASE let me know what you think. I am sure alot of brides would LOVE to rent this peice.

    Another question....We are 1100 dollars short of our budget. is there any thing you would suggest adding that ou wish you had. I am lost as to what to add to the wedding :(

    have a great day!!!

    Hey!! Yes we are okay with you renting it. The only thing I would prefer to be the one to transport it. Plus we couldn't fit it in my SUV it had to go in my moms GMC Envoy and that was pushing it cause its so big. Another thing to think about is our planner didn't really want us to drop it off till the morning of the wedding since the bakery will just put it on the stand right before it comes to your reception. The only reason they let us drop it off the day before is because I had a 10:00 am ceremony and we had some decorating to the morning of the wedding. Where is your reception?

    Sorry it tok me a while to get back to you... Since we booked our MK/Epcot bridal portrait session just last week we are scrambling to get things done so we can leave this weekend. Ugh I'm stressed!
