Have you considered buying silk flowers?

You are right about OKW having the biggest 2 bedroom villa, actually they have the biggest 1 bedroom villa also since it was the first DVC resort built. I own DVC points there so if you have any questions at all about it please PM me and I will be happy to help you out! I am therefore a little biased when it comes to OKW I love the theming, the tranquility, one really great thing is you don't feel like you're in a hotel at all. Another thing that's cool is you can often see Epcot's fireworks from your balcony! It's really close to Epcot despite being classed as a Downtown Disney resort. Speaking of, you can also get a boat from OKW to DTD which is awesome.

Having said all that, I think it would be a great idea for you to stay at the Boardwalk since you're getting married there. It might make everything easier on the day and reduce your stress levels. In terms of renting points (which is a great idea by the way, it will save you a TON!) I would use David's DVC Rentals at dvcrequest.com I know a few people who have rented points from there and recommend it. You can also see how many points you'll need for each type of room at each resort and how much that will cost

I'm excited to follow your planning! I'm an October 2013 Bride

I went ahead and booked the DVC points! I booked one night at OKW for the bridal party and the week at Boardwalk. They were out of value views at the BWV already, so I had to go with a preferred view. I'm kinda excited though because we'll get a Boardwalk view that I've always wanted!

I'm jealous that you're a DVC member haha. Maybe one day we will be!

Congrats on your wedding!
Congrats! You'll love being at the Boardwalk, both for the wedding and after for F&W! It's become our favorite resort (granted, we might be a bit biased...).
