I am finally posting my planning journal with the wedding being less than a week away! There is a theme to my planning: behind on everything and I have no idea and why is everything seem to be going wrong?!?! The engagement: My DF proposed at the French Island at EPCOT. I thought he was getting sick, but it just turned out he was getting nervous! We love Disney and go as much as possible so it was really special when he chose to propose to me at EPCOT (our favorite park). I still get emotional every time we pass by France. The Wedding We are having our DFTW at the WP during the evening with the cocktail reception at Italy Isola and dinner and dancing at AAR. The location was chosen as a happy medium between three other locations- my Dad wanted the Great Movie Ride (I cannot explain how excited he was about that location), I wanted China, and my DF was intrigued by the Brown Derby (never got too much into the details on that one). My Dad is finally ok with our decision to go with AAR, but I think he is holding out for a vow renewal sometime down the line at the Great Movie Ride! Invitations: I cannot begin to explain the drama that has circled around this issue! I went with the person Disney suggests and cant explain how bad this decision was. I get upset just thinking about it . . . moving on! Programs, menu cards, place cards, etc. I am trying to get this all together because of the aforementioned problem. I am trying to make a lot of things on my own now. I will post pics as I make stuff! Table Signs & Bubbles We have gold easels for each table that have signs printed on champagne paper which is then mounted on a chocolate brown paper. Each table is named after one of our favorite Disney things, for example, Mr. Toads Wild Ride, Donald & Daisy, and Pirates of the Caribbean. The bubbles took a lot of time, but were a lot of fun! Place cards: We are making place cards with different colored jewels at the top for each food choice. Menus: After getting a castle logo from a fellow diser, I printed them on ivory paper and mounted it on chocolate paper to make it standout. I am also doing bows at the top. Programs: I am not sure if I will be able to finish them, but I am using Disney Print Creations to make them! Guest book: We are doing the traditional style guest book and another one which you can see the pic below. It is the Art of Walt Disney coffee table book and we are asking guests to pick their favorite film, pics, etc. and write a message on that page with a permanent marker so we can have it on display everyday. Welcome Bags I bought tote bags for $3.50 each from a wholesaler and then had them embroidered with either the guests name or initials. Here is one we made for a bridesmaid. Inside we are putting: -FL gummie alligators -snacks (potato chips, pretzels, pecans, breakfast bars, and candy bars) -boxes of Godiva chocolate -Disney umbrellas -Disney frames -WDW golf balls -Disney pins -Disney mugs (we have some serious coffee drinkers) -Key Lime taffy and other goodies -WDW throws We are also making newsletters to include in the gifts bags that welcome everyone, talk about events we are having (our Bon Voyage breakfast, rehearsal dinner), and gives them the wedding bus schedule. Ok! That's all I have covered write now- I will add more later tonight with details on the dress, decor, and other goodies! Hope you all like everything- if not, I hold you all responsible!!!!
