    I was on a while back and I was so excited to be getting married in WDW. It was booked and set but, we have had some setbacks.

    Fortunately we will now be doing a 14 day Disneymoon FOLLOWED by either a November 11 2010 or 2011 VR in Disney...
    Which will be :VR in Morocco
    Reception: Living Seas
    Illuminations dessert party! YAY!

    So I noticed I didn't add how we met... Although I find it to be the most amazing thing in the entire world, I apoligize if I make some of you fall asleep while reading!:coffee:
    The reason why my family says we are a "Storybook" couple, is because of our beginning! Here is the story:

    Once upon a time, there was a young girl who had given up on love. The year had brought her very terrible times, and tragedies, however she tried to be positive that her future would be better.
    One day, this girl received a phone call from her very close friend, Mike. He was working at the local department store (cough;kohls;cough)and was bored. So, Jenny decided to take a walk with her mom to visit Mike at the store.
    The visit was usual. They chatted to pass time while he folded clothes...mom shopped and then we headed back home. "I'll give you a call later" he said as they left.
    Sure enough, Mike called Jenny a few hours later asking if she would want to go bowling. Then he proceeded to tell her somethign else...
    "You know, this guy I work with, Vinnie, He was asking about you" he said kind of cheerfully. Mike was never one to set up his friends and so this came as a surprise to Jenny.
    "Um, Yeah okay mike" said jenny feeling confused. And let the subject go.
    After bowling, Mike and Jenny headed back to kohls to pick up his sister who worked till closing. While waiting, there was a knock on the window.
    A very handsome man, in a purple shirt and tie was standing by the car. His smile was so beautiful and he was just so handsome. Jenny wanted to know more about him, but just sat looking at her feet!
    Once the young man left she turned to Mike and said "Who was that? He was so handsome! I have to know who he is!" Jenny had never felt this way before...

    Mikes face glowed and when he turned around he said "THAT...that is Vinnie. And he asked the same about YOU!"
    The young girl was shocked. What were the odds that the two had seen eachother on the same day....11.11, and had immediately felt the same?
    Mike gave Vinnie Jennys number and by Christmas, the two were a item. They had never felt that way about anyone else, and it was as if they had known eachtoher... forever...

    (Sleeping yet? l:rotfl: )

    Our Popped Engagement... :flower3:
    I came home from Saturday School that I teach super early, and sat down. FH said "I have something for you!" And he was acting rather odd. His mom was acting strange too and she left. I was thinking to myself "OMG hes breaking up with me!!"
    I am a very nervous person and my nerves get the best of me. On the TV was the movie "Flubber" and i love Robin Williams so I sat down...
    I wasn't feeling good and told him. He wouldn't sit and when he did he would sit on the big chair next to me, not on the couch!
    I thought it was odd but, I know I am also very sensitive...
    So...
    He walks into the kitchen and comes out with the snapple bottle. "Look what I found" he said, removing the plastic wrapper (ALthough it wa salready broken and he was just taking it off!)
    He then pretended to be opening it for me, and I didn't notice I didn't hear a "pop"
    When he handed it to me, right away I opened it and read the "fact" and said "Thats not nice, someone may thing their being proposed to!" and put the cap down. When I looked to my left there was df on one knee!!! I was in SHOCK and almost passed out...!
    [​IMG]
    Fh proposed to me on a "out of the blueberry" snapple cap!
    Originally he was going to do it in WDW but then decided that he couldnt wait and didn't know if they sold snapple. We are big tea fans... so it was perfect and i had NO CLUE... I was actually in shock!
    The ring is aheart and it is absolutely stunning, It's from Blue Nile. Anyone in NY they just opened one here and the are way up there on the quality level!

    Our wedding theme:
    removed because wonderful df is on these boards as well lol..Sorry hunny... so pictures of the dress for u here!!

    Blue, brown with accents of pink. Daisy's of course my favorite!
    [​IMG]

    My favors will be the teapot tea caddy with the tea bags and we are looking into starfish sugar!

    We aren't sure where we are going to put this yet but it is a MUST...
    [​IMG]

    Thank you all for your help in the past, And I apoligize for being a pest in the future! I am very nervous by nature...:confused3

    Hes a oddball, he actually opened the bottle scraped off the writing and then used some like, two way thing to put the text he wanted on. WHen he gave me the bottle he took the wrapper off (It was already broken) and opened it (or so I thought) Handed it to me...

    I of course opened it and right away looked at the cap and said "Thats so mean someone may actually think their getting proposed to!" and put it down. Then to my surprise was my df on one knee next to me!!! Insanity! he's so smart :cutie: :love:

    Make Up Trial!

    Okay so, I had my makeup teaching trial. FSIL is a makeup artist and I unfortunately have horrible allergies to everything. I am lucky that I am not allergic to my own skin! lol

    So, we had to play around with certain make up for my that I wouldn't be allergic to... After many itchy rashes later, we found a few name brands that work wonders...

    I really wanted a completely natural look, I hate the way I look with makeup. Some people can pull off the smokey eyes where I just look like a crazy person... not joking onebit by the way lol..
    So here is the final outcome: Its much brighter in person however my camera stinks alittle.. (Thats what you get forplanning a at home wdding lol)
    [​IMG]

    I'll have fake eyelashes the actual day of that I'll pray Im not allergic to the glue with! lol..... Now on to hair!

    Hey just saw your reply in my PJ! Yes heart-cut diamonds are indeed awesome! :love: I love your ring, obviously! The makeup looks great too.

    The engagement story is adorable. That is so sweet that your df thought up something so creative and executed it so well. He is definitely a keeper! :thumbsup2

    So, here is a small but VERY exciitng update on my wedding... FSIL is Pregnant! She is due the end of August which means she will have a very luvly baby bump walking down the aisle as a bridesmaid!

    Her son is also our ring bearer so I am beyond excited. I had taken a class in College years back on old religion weddings (strange class but worth it) and found out that in olden timesthey would pick a "bearer" meaning someone who was with child to bring them luck on fertility. So I was secretly praying that someone would be preggo for my wedding because of personal issues and now, my wish comes true!! Hopefully our "magical honeymoon" is even more magical (if you know what I mean)...

    Other than that, I am beyond excited. Had to put a call in to make sure she could get a bigger size and the place we ordered them from were fine with it! We are getting the wtoo dresses and they are tea length and very flowy so I'm not too worried! I am sure she will look beyond stunning (DF entire family is beautiful they all look like movie stars in my opinion!)

    So, the makeup trial was a success which makes me happy. The only thing I am worried about now, is not being too nervous and being able to do my own make up the day of. Oh nerves.. why do they get the best of me?

    I don't know if most of you remember but we are renovating df basement into an appartment .He gutted it and re-did it to make it very livable... It actually looks like a mini-cottage now and I can not wait to live ther with him. He is very old fashioned so we are waiting till the wedding to live together. It's almost done as well! SO much good news in such a short period of time!!
    I will update with pictures as soon as I can!
    Jenny

    Hi Back!
    We were there last July as well for the engagement! We stayed at CBR though! Did you know that they have engagement pins now? I am so angry that we didn't get one last summer! I am planning on getting one this year as well as the "just married"!

    Hope your plans are coming along smoothly!

    Is anyone else having registry issues? I know I am and it's driving me nuts. DF and I really have mostly everything we need. We put things on the registry that we would love to have but wouldn't buy ourselves (which I thought was the purpose of it?)
    Well there were a few comments made that "We have expensive taste" on things like our sheets etc. The truth is, is that, we really use grose sheets, like the ones that arent even number thread count and wanted to start our marriage with REAL 350 thread count cotton sheets... Now those of you who sleep with nice sheets know, that these at times can be expensive.
    But I didn't feel like 70 dollars for a good set is that bad? So we have now added some "cheap sheets'' on. I am not happy about this though...

    My mom says I should ignore them and leave what I have on. However I worry about everything and anything that is said to me, or about me....yes, I am one of those lol...

    We are also planning on doing the disney registry and I am worried that then people will think we are being greedy or something of that nature.

    I wonder why people turn your wedding into their own problems? It makes me sad that we decided to make them happy and stay here for the wedding, and yet it is still not enough...

    Okay so, enough complaining... good news...My MOH's shower will be soon! And I am beyond excited. I have already stalked her registry and I think I've come up with a pretty awesome idea for her gifts... a morning basket (things like her coffee maker, expresso sets etc and then little odds and ends here and there, sugar, powdered creamer...etc)

    Registries can be fun... if they're not your own lolol
