    We just officially scheduled our site visit! :cool1:

    We're only going to see the Pavilion and Whitehall, but I want to know what they look like now with all the changes. I can't wait until December.

    We'll be there 4 - 10. If I could convince the fam (mainly just my bro and DF), I was totally planning on photo-stalking your wedding. ;)

    That would be super to met up! I'm not sure which park we'll be in on the 9th, but our last day has traditionally been a hit everything and MK day. I'll let you know as we figure it out.

    Awesomely, other than the DP, we have the same wedding day schedule and locations! :goodvibes

    Hey! My mom told me that some girls are planning a meet up for all the disbrides going in December to Disney... I dont have facebook... I know crazy right! Of course, I plan on catching up with you while we are there, when is your last day at Disney? I really wanna be part of the disbrides meet ups, but she said they were planning it for Dec 8... my wedding day, and with whats going on there is no way we could make it (unless I could go into HS in my dress - I know they say no wedding gear inthe parks, but I heard HS sometimes lets you in... Of course I couldnt get on any rides). Im not sure if you have any of the other girls emails or phone numbers and I wouldnt mind any of the disbrides knowing my cell number. Here is my email - LILBUNNICHELLE@GMAIL.COM

    Email me so we could chat more about the meet ups!

    I can officially say we're almost there.

    I got my email from our consultant, Pam, with the room block info. :yay:

    Honestly, it was beginning to feel like this day would never come. And, I can now say that one year from this moment, I will gallivanting around the resorts taking post-reception pictures!

    27 days until our site visit trip
    181 days until our planning session trip (hopefully)
    365 days until our wedding

    :banana: W00t! :banana:

    I had heard a lot of "cough* fun *cough* stories about setting up the room block, so I was prepared.

    Thankfully, since we have so few people and can only guarantee 4 nights at this point, we got the room block waived. I thought we could set up a block for 10 rooms, but it's 25 to set one up now. Oh well.:upsidedow

    It would save us a little bit if we can get the room block, since we're hoping to stay at the Grand a couple of nights, but I'm not sure I will have anyone other than us staying on-property. Even if we do stay on property, we would only fill 12 nights, and I'd have to get 13 more . . . :faint:

    Who knows. Maybe the fam will surprise me, and some of them will want to stay at Disney resorts.

    I am so excited for you plans! We are having the same wedding date, 11/7/13!!!
    We are having about 30-35 guests and we are struggling with what we want to do, you seem to have a great grasp on things!
    I will look forward to seeing more plans!

    Awesome! Where is your wedding and what time? Do you have a planning journal?

    I've been planning this wedding for a long time. I was seven when I started thinking about it, and I've been seriously working on it for almost five years.

    Ceremony is SBP at 2:30 - we are still deciding on a reception site... I'm getting antsy to get this done!!
    We thought we were having more people, and we were set on ADH but its better to have a smaller place.

    Cool! I was hoping to stop by Boardwalk around 4:00-ish to take some photos in my dress with my wedding party. I'll be sure to say hi if I see you (and stay out of the way of any of your photos). =]

    Well, we made it. Our LOA and deposit have been processed, and we should be hearing from our planner in 7-10 business days. Hilariously, this will be when we are actually down at Disney on our family vacation.

    Site Visit: 13 days
    First MVMCP: 15 days
    Planning Session: 167 days
    Wedding: 351 days

    Well, we just ordered our guestbook. I'll post our favorite pages when we get it. It should be here soon after we get back from Disney World.

    Got a few updates to throw your way:

    We had our site visit last week, and it was pretty awesome. I'll have a TR as soon as I can. It was also our first trip to WDW together and the first time we went to a Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! I also got to meet bride Michelle on her wedding day.

    Our guest book arrived last week while we were gone, so we opened it last night. Actually, DF opened it at work yesterday, so he saw it first.

    Our Save the Dates went out this morning.

    We're also down to two possibilities for our officiant. We just need to talk it over, and that contract and deposit should be going out tomorrow.

    I'll be back with more soon!
