    HI everyone! I'm starting a PJ hoping it will help me to collect my thoughts on planning my wedding in 7 months! We decided to get married at Disney when my DF's family gathers for a pre-holiday getaway.

    I'm not doing a Planning Session, I'm planning entirely by phone and email! I want a slight Christmas theme and I'm leaning on Red, Ivory and Gold (just for accent) as my color scheme.

    Having said that I am having trouble deciding on a location to host my brunch reception! The choice that most seem to go with is the Attic but I'm afraid it will completely clash with my color scheme. Should I not worry about that?


    I should also mention that I haven't booked yet! That will happen any day, keep your fingers crossed that SBP is still available on that day and time!


    Updated list, I changed my mind several times, ultimately choosing to NOT have a DFTW:

    Ceremony Time: 4:30pm
    Location: Fulton's Crab House
    Coordinator: Me!
    Floral: Blossoms Orlando
    Photographer: Randy Chapman
    Hair and Makeup: Beaute Speciale
    Violinist: Jennie Rudberg
    Caricature Artist: Glenn Ferguson
    Reception Time: 5:00pm
    Location: Fulton's Crab House
    Transportation: Limo Orlando
    Cake: Annette's Cakes

    Congrats! Personally, I love the attic, and think you could make just about any color scheme work in there. Let us know what you decide!

    thanks ladies!

    I keep changing my mind on the brunch location. I'm not sure I want to have to meet a $2500 minimum for the Attic. I'm now leaning towards a small room at the Boardwalk instead since I hear they have a $685 min. Has anyone ever seen this done for a small party of around 25? I was also looking at Narcoosee's....any other ideas??

    Just wanted to say welcome :goodvibes and how exciting that you are only 7 months out:banana:! I think your colors sound lovely... unfortunately I know nothing about the attic or really any of the other reception locations since I am an Escape bride:confused3 How many guests are you having? That may help narrow things down. Can't wait to hear more of your plans!

    I'm an escape bride too! I just want to provide my guests with a relatively nice, private meal after our ceremony.

    Looks like the St. James room is the key, only $675 minimum and no rental fee1 :banana::cool1:

    That's on my list but I like the idea of a private room, my party will be 25 so Citrico's private room is out!

    My date and time is available! So it's official, this December 4th at 10am I am getting married at SeaBreeze Point!

    I booked great airfare this morning. DF's parents live in Cape Coral so we will fly there soon after Thanksgiving and spend a couple of days. We leave Orlando on 12/7.

    A couple of more decisions have been made. I think I want to give out Christmas ornaments as favors so I'm scouting eBay for good deals. And I think we are shying away from having attendants at all but may still have a flower girl.

    Next up is finding rooms and going dress shopping.

    Booked the hotel! Old Key West from 12/1-12/7...waitlisted the last night! Also booked for my mom and brother,.

    I decided to book Randy Chapman for photography, I want at least 4 hours worth of coverage and the DVD and it works out to be about the same out-of-pocket. It would be nice of Disney to offer substitutions on things like that.

    I got an invitation sample but the paper is too small for my printer. I will either have to pick a larger invitation or have it printed for me.

    I'm also thinking now, since we aren't going to have attendants, just too flower girls that I might just do every thing in white. White dresses, white flowers, white accessories, etc.

    I also started an "OMG I can't afford everything I want, I can't believe how fast this all adds up!" freak-out. Does everyone have one of these and how did you cope with it?!? And did you end up cutting anything? Right now I don't know how I'm going to have a MK photo shoot and I was really looking forward to that.
