Hi DISFriends! A new DTFW bride to be here!! I had started this thread on another forum, but thought it would be better placed in with the other pj's! After 5 1/2 years together, my fiancee Rick and I have been engaged since Christmas Day of 2012. I'm a sucker for Christmas, but this one has taken the prize for best ever!!! Such a wonderful surprise The wedding planning is in full swing now! In the beginning stages of planning, my father was the one to actually suggest a DFTW in the first place! ( gotta love the man). Like so many of you, I have spend countless family vacations on the wonderful WDW properties, and it has become such a huge part of my life! It only makes sense to start planning the beginning of my 'forever' with Rick at the Happiest Place on Earth! I spoke with a Disney consultant (Michelle G) last week, and was fully intending on going with an Escape wedding....... well.... that didn't last long! In discussing with my parents, it didn't seem feasible to discount so many members of my family. My entire family is from Buffalo, NY and with a guest list capped out at 20... seemed a bit daunting. So officially, we are looking at a wishes wedding on October 27,2013 at the Wedding Pavilion & then Citricos for a brunch until we all break to change and then meet back at MK truly so excited. I am just thankful I have a spot at all.. I figured planning this now would lead me to have a wedding in 2015!! But it seems that someone is looking out for me so far, and is willing to let me have a wedding in oh... 7 Months?! (wait... what am I thinking?!) Congrats to all the other brides to be and beyond! Glad we can share this amazing experience with each other & share words of wisdom!
