Hi there! Welcome aboard! (Pun intended)

I love everything so far and can't wait to read more. Your ideas are fabulous. I originally wanted to do the message in a bottle thing, but we decided to be sneaky, sneaky on the cruise and save that for just us. lol

We're also big DMB fans!

Hi babe!
I've definitely stalked your wedding more than once on here--pretty sure I've commented you on Carly's FB page too. I think we DCL brides must be so few and far between that we're all memorable.

We have one more thing in common too: I've recently begun doing freelance photography for a hobby and extra income. Two weddings this month! I'm learning a LOT. Maybe I'll post a few photos here on my planning blog just to show.

So. Even though my wedding is still a year and a half away at least, and even though I don't even have an exact date, I just want to get crap done.

Like, I feel behind.

Which is psycho, I realize. But I feel this way anyway.

So here's the todo list for now:

Compile Address List
Mail Pseudo-STD's and Newsletters
Create Pre-RSVP's
Call wedding planning number and actually get Shanda's contact info
Make some sample crafts for at home thingy just to see if i can do it.
Start collecting florals
SAVE SOME MONEY!

ha!

I just made my first call to DFTW regarding our cruise wedding in early 2012. I asked the lady a few questions. Below are the responses I got and my thoughts. LOL!

Q: When we do a Castaway Cay ceremony on the 5-day itineraries, is it the first or second stop to Castaway Cay that our ceremony will occur?
A. It's always the first stop.
Just thought this was good information so I'm posting it for anyone else's benefit.

Q: The website says if you have more than 48 guests to inquire about availability. How does this work?
(I kid you not this was her response)
A: Well those are put in place for a reason so there's obviously not a whole lot we can do at that point.
So if I have 51 guests they're going to get kicked off the beach? Why is this even on the website then if they're not budging from that rule? Stupid.

Q: Can I have contact information of a planner so as I think of questions I can speak with them directly?
A: You can schedule a phone appointment with them closer to your date.
We aren't able to handle those types of questions currently.Why is your staffing issue my problem? Hire more people to work DFTW DCL weddings then.
Ugh. First experience speaking to DFTW? Not good.

I am sorry to hear you are having such issues with DFTW. I think they need to hire someone just to answer questions. Luckily with all of the wonderful people that have posted on here I have been able to get most of my questions answered. With the number of people issue...when I booked my wedding I told her I may have over 48 and she said we would discuss it and make arrangements once my list of guests and confirmation numbers were turned in with my planning journal. I have noticed that if you have your wedding booked, she does respond faster. So many things may change before early 2012 and I know she answered questions alot faster once I had my date and had been charged for the wedding part. Also, I only email her when I have several questions as not to overwhelm her email box. Don't get discouraged...I just figure there are so many people getting married before I do that need answers faster than I do. I am not getting married until 11-12-11 on Castaway Cay.

I'm not super worried about it yet. I just get irritated when a) I'm spoke to condescendingly (Lady, I'm sure you get calls all day with stupid questions that can be answered on the website. However, I have read the whole darn website and the answer is not there!), and b) when another company's staffing issue is supposed to somehow be my problem. LOL!

Anyway, small update:

I mailed our first wedding stationery yesterday! It's just a generic announcement saying that we plan to get married on a Disney Cruise and we'll let you know when we've made the reservation. Also sent out copies of the newsletter I posted previously. I did manage to decorate the envelopes with some cute stamps so I'll post some of my artsy pics when I get a chance!
