Thanks for the nice comments! We'll definitely be getting a photographer. We just have to wait until next month to figure out how much we can afford. Hahaha We started off our relationship broke, unemployed and living at my parents house, anything is an improvement over that situation! hahaha I will keep them coming as they hit me.

We're still adding to our reception playlist. It keeps growing by the day. haha. we have almost 4 hours of music so far. We're aiming for the reception to only go until 9pm because we're driving down to DL that night to do a mini-honeymoon. I've been debating putting this off though because it's going to be STUPIDLY crowded due to it being Labor Day weekend but we'll see what happens I guess.


We've started talking about our real Disney-moon to WDW in December and we're debating between renting a DVC studio at BLT or OKW. I like BLT because of the possibility of getting a MK view and being able to order room service and watch the fireworks from our room; plus it's right on the monorail. I guess we'll see what's available closer to the date when we have more money. haha. We definitely want to check out Jellyrolls and B&C and if I can get some of my friends who live down there to join us maybe try the kitchen sink. Any suggestions for restaurants to go to? We're going to purchase the DDP through a friend of mine who works for DCL and has graciously offered us her discount.

Hey guys! Finally got a picture of the outside of the invitations from my mom!

They'll be going out as soon as DF gets a job. haha. Gotta figure out where she'll be working before we can make the date final. Other than that no real news yet. Once she gets a start date for a job we'll put the deposit down on the cake and figure out the hotel situation for our caterer, minister and my best man. Might be putting them up at like a motel 6 though since some of the hotels are kinda pricey and selection is very limited in that area.

Hey guys! Sorry it's been so long since I updated but we've hit a few snags and have had to change the date. It's going to be sometime in October now. Life just got in the way. Typical. haha.

Thanks!

So due to some conflicts we have cancelled the wedding and decided to do the justice of the peace on Friday(yes this Friday! AHH!) and then next October do a Vow Renewal at the Swan and Dolphin! Looks like we'll be getting our WDW "Wedding" anyways!

My parent's are flying in on Thursday() but sadly her family couldn't make it on such short notice. Oh well, we'll see them soon enough Now to start planning for next year!

Well today is the day! We head to the Justice of the Peace at Noon Pacific time! Now to start figuring out if the Swan/Dolphin or a DCL(shipboard) vow renewal is more affordable for us and our families. Anyone have any BEO's for either venue or links to them you can share? Thanks in advance!

Life happened yet again. A week after we got married DW left for a job in Montana until October. Then, the day I got back from dropping her off I got let go from work. *sigh*

I moved us back to Las Vegas by myself and have decided to go back to school in the fall. We may be putting off the VR even longer. We'll see where things go I guess. She'll have an easier time finding a job out here also so that will definitely help out.

It's funny how life gets in the way of even the best laid plans. We're still shooting for October 2013 for the VR and decided to take our honeymoon in DL when she comes home in October.

I'm going to start getting in contact with the Swolphin and getting prices and such in a month or 2. If anyone has any BEO's you can share with me that would be great!

Hey guys, Sorry I kinda dropped the ball on the whole wedding planning thing. Anyways, after much deliberation between Britt and I we have decided to have our ceremony at the Swan and Dolphin! We're in the early planning stages right now but we already have our photographer picked out, who happens to be a close friend of mine, Jen Sulak with Pink Light Images(Here's her link: http://www.pinklightimages.com/ and her FB page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pink-L...59029967465823). She does some amazing work. We're possibly going to have our (VERY late) engagement photos taken possibly in October depending on our budget. I'm happy to finally be getting the ball rolling on this again, even if it isn't exactly what we had planned before!

-Brett

We've finally settled on a date! December 14, 2013 at the Swan and Dolphin! We're still working on getting the money together for a deposit to hold the date. Our officiant will be a close friend of mine since it's technically just a vow renewal since we're already legally married.

We're going to break tradition somewhat with our wedding(as if we hadn't already, haha). We're going to do the ceremony at sunset, followed by dinner with whoever wants to join us at Narcoossse's. We'll make a reservation for however many people will be there(we're planning on 30) and everyone will be on their own for paying as we're on a tight budget. We will be springing for a dessert party for everyone though. Not sure which location yet but the Grand Floridian's area looks amazing! Any DP location suggestions are welcome.

-Brett

Update:
Hey guys and gals,

We've decided to look into other venues outside of Disney for our wedding but are still relatively close. We have all but decided on Paradise Cove. http://www.paradisecoveorlando.com/ The price is well within our budget for the ceremony and almost $1,000 cheaper than the S&D for more stuff! We'll probably be able to do a reception and the VR this way!

DW is still looking for dresses and is thinking about changing our wedding colors. We'll see what happens. We only have 367 days to get everything done! AH!!! This year is going to go by fast!

-Brett
