    I'm so excited to start my planning journal that I can't wait until after my site meeting next month!

    Dan proposed in January during a family vacation to Disney World in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. I've always wanted to wed at Disney and seeing we live in Arizona DisneyLand is more appropriate for us.

    I've always wanted a smaller wedding so our guest list of more than 50 is more than I had anticipated but I can't imagine cutting anyone at this moment.

    We (and I mean my mother and I) don't have too much planning done. Just a lot of research, including extensive research of Planning Journals!

    I am having four bridesmaids: my sister (MOH), my two best friends, and my Fiance's sister. So all I just finished the cards I made to ask my bridesmaids. I love to make cards so this was something I was very excited about doing. It was great to FINALLY get to do something. Seeing as we haven't really spoken to anyone at Disney it was great to do something in regards to the wedding.

    I have pictures of the cards my mom and I made ( I love them!) but, how many posts do you have to have before you can post pictures?

    Thanks for any help you can all offer!

    Congratulations! Looking forward to hearing your DisneyLand plans!

    I think you need to have 10 posts before you can post pictures.

    Here is the inside: I know it's hard to see. I found some poems on the net and printed them on textured paper using Waltograph.

    And here is my mother and I working very hard on them! Took us about four hours to get them all done.

    I don't know if I'm up to making the invitations to the wedding. I guess it all comes down to budget issues. (doens't everything? :) )

    Thank you! Arizona's pretty good, I couldn't live anywhere colder but there is no way I could live anywhere warmer either!

    Thank You!! We are both so excited and I am always crying!!!

    Everytime I see something wonderful and fun on these boards, tears well up. I can't imagine what it will be like at the wedding, and I am not a big crier!!!

    I am a teary kinda girl so I made Amanda play the song she was dancing with my husband to a bunch of times because the first time she played I balled like a baby. Did pretty good during that dance too.

    She was married this past Friday and I gave up touching up my make up after the toasts. There were 4 toasts and they were all so special I was a mess.
    My husband lost it on the Welcome speech when Amanda started crying and I was done for......

    I hope you will do better than I did... Good luck!

    I finally decided (after changing my mind about five times! :rolleyes: ) on black, silver, and champagne for my colors. I know most spring/summer weddings have brighter colors but I feel like this will be elegant. And that is the type of wedding I want! Amazing and elegant!:cool1:

    I am going to have my bridesmaids pick whatever dresses they want from a particular designer. I love Alfred Angelo BM dresses. So hopefully that's what we end up getting. (Did I say we? I meant they!)

    I am having the ceremony at the Rose Court Garden. It's simply beautiful (and my only option right now!). I'm betting they will be in bloom in may and smell incredible. I won't have a flower girl so I'm thinking Mickey confetti would be fun instead of flowers down the aisle. But, I'll have to see if that is even doable. Dan was very disappointed when I put my foot down about where the ceremony would be. He LOVES the Grand! But the reception will be at the Grand. I thought it would be fun to walk through DTD from the Disneyland Hotel to the Grand Californian for the wedding party.


    I'm having a cocktail hour and a plated dinner. Don't know much about that since I haven't been able to talk to someone at Disney about it. Just been drooling over everyone else's plans!:blush:

    That's about all I have for certain right now. I'm already trying to rack my brain for a grooms gift. Probably because I just want to do SOMETHING!

    Although I did (or I should say my mom) ordered my tiara. Hopefully that will be in soon. I feel like there is so much time before my wedding and I'll change my mind about everything a million times! But I know everyone says it goes fast!!!

    I forgot I promised Dan I'd ask if anyone knew anyone that had used Sandals resorts for a honeymoon? We were originally going to do an adventures by disney tour of Rome but, Sandals sounds great. By the beach just doing nothing. Perfect! Of course by the time I make a reservation I will have probably changed my mind about three more times! :scratchin

    What sass! Although, sniffle, when I think of the words, Yes! It does choke me up!

    Anybody else out there had Storybook Love at their reception. or a fan of The Princess Bride, the Best Movie Ever???

    HI! You sound so excited...I'm excited for you! I agree with you on the comment of Mama of Indy Bride not being a big crier...didn't she say she put off watching Finding Nemo because seeing his "special fin" would make her cry....and she cried at the end of Cars! I can imagine what this is going to be like for her...we'll just have BOXES of kleenex under her seat...or maybe towels...that might work better.
    The colors for the wedding will be gorgeous! Very classy! You're going to be the most beautiful bride ever!!!
    Can't wait to see you on Saturday!!!:wave2:
