Really enjoyed reading your how-we-met and engagement stories. Your engagement ring is beautiful, I love sapphires too!

Your cake topper is going to be so cute!

So we're in a dilemma and could use the creative minds of the DISBoards!

I'm giving my bridal party lockets, a t-shirt, and possibly a hat to ask them to be in the bridal party. For the adult groomsmen, FH wants to give them a bottle of liquor with a possible shirt, but we're trying to figure out a cool thing to give his sons that is comparable in value to the lockets we're giving his daughters, but that the boys will enjoy. Originally he was thinking a video game (a cheap one) with a DVD cover on front saying something along the lines of "Here is a game to play, will you play a part in my wedding"; but I was worried that it wouldn't be a comparable gift to the lockets and cause an issue...

Any thoughts/suggestions?

So finals are over (thank goodness), as well as Christmas; so I can spend the next month concentrating on wedding planning (oh...and applying to colleges for my bachelor's degree...lol). Tomorrow my folks and kid sister come in town, and Saturday I go to look at wedding dresses for the first time (eep!). Nervous is an understatement right now. Being a plus-sized woman, I'm worried that it'll be an absolute disaster, that they won't have anything for me to try on, and nothing will fit me. I'm also worried about my mom's reaction...that she'll make a comment about my weight (suggesting her "shake diet" for instance) and cause me to break down in front of everyone. I'm terrified right now ....isn't this suppose to be the exciting, fun part? Well...it isn't...for me at least...I'm terrible at shopping for myself. It's a really long story, but let's just say my self-image is pretty low.

Luckily for me...my best friend (Nichole, remember, Tim's ex-wife) will be there too. She promised me she'll play defense against any negative crap that might be put out there. She knows my history and knows how nervous I am. Tim also will be at my appointment (due to my begging...lol) so I have those two at least.

In the form of bridal party members: Tim asked Eric (ex-wife's fiance..I mentioned the dynamic between us 4 right? Lol) to be his Best Man the weekend before Christmas. On Christmas Day, I asked my two cousins Ellen and Joanna to be bridesmaids. They all said yes. I plan to ask my sister to be Maid of Honor tomorrow when they arrive, and Nichole to be a bridesmaid on Saturday, before the dress appointment. Hopefully I get two more yeses under my belt!

We sent in the contract for Randy Chapman, so that's set. Took us a while due to my studying.

So....I will try to update after the appointment, but I'll have family here til January 7th so I don't know how possible it'll be to do right away.

Good luck with the dress shopping! We all have those insecurities no matter what size, and I know it's easier said than done, but just remember it is your day, and you will be the most important and beautiful person there! Have fun!!

Thanks so much guys

So...today was dress shopping. And it was a success! I bought a dress .





What do you think? I felt gorgeous in it, but I'm wondering how it'll look in the pictures...Tim said that he was "blown away by how gorgeous you are"....so I guess that's good.

I don't normally buy clothes for myself, I guess this is why . I really did feel amazing in it though....what do you think?

You look gorgeous in that dress! Alfred Angelo? I hope your bridal party all said yes! You're making me feel really behind...I haven't even started to dress shop yet, or ask people to be in my wedding, or take engagement photos lol.

Thanks! Yup it's an AA dress. And you aren't behind, we've been engaged since May . I've been dying to get the ball rolling, and I know it'll be harder once Spring semester starts again!

So I called Disney today since...well...we are 16 MONTHS AWAY! We booked for the 9th because of the cruise we want to take for our honeymoon (which leaves on the 10th), so I'll have to call Randy and Rev Kev to see about the dates being changed. The lady was really nice to me on the phone, and said someone will be in contact with me in 2-3 business days. .

Now...I know not much happens from 16-12 months.....and then from 10-PS so I'm trying to figure out what crafty stuff I can do now to keep me busy.....ya know, so I don't drive FH insane? Lol.

In other news, I asked all my bridesmaids and my MOH and they all said yes! I wish I got their reactions on video....but ah well....

So excited to finally be in contact with Disney! The next 4 months will fly by......right?

Okay guys. I know I've been VERY bad at updating this. There merely hasn't been much to talk about! Plus, I had school.

But I did my last set of finals last week, and (hopefully) will graduate in June. I'm still waiting on my grades to post though.

Anyway. We are past the 12 month mark! .

Also, because of the new changes to photography, we changed our reception venue!

Originally we were in a lottery for our ceremony time/location, but we still got it. So we this is what is held for us:

Wedding Pavilion-11:30 am-1pm (Noon Ceremony)
Living Seas Salon-1pm-6pm

I'm wicked syked! I've always loved Living Seas, but didn't want to deal with Disney Fine Arts Photography. So I'm so happy for the new rules!

We just sent in our room block information today also. The hotels we chose for room block are: ASMu, POR, and BC! Pretty excited! I might try to get a night at Beach Club myself, and try that AWESOME pool!

As for bridal party, everyone said yes. So that's exciting! We're suppose to go bridesmaid dress shopping in early July!

Now, we're waiting for our LOA, and then a planner! We also have to finish our wedding website and work on STDs and newsletter...oy vey. At least school is done so I have time for that!

I'll post more later on some bridesmaid dress ideas

Okay gals,

I have to say that I failed on keeping up with this. So I'm going to try to catch you up and do better.

DATE CHANGE
As you can see, our date changed (AGAIN!).

We were in the beginning parts of planning, and I find out one of my cousin's college graduations is on May 10th...

Now...we all know there are some people that are on our guest lists because we have to invite them (though, admittedly, that is a very short list on mine). Well....this cousin and her parents I actually WANTED at the wedding Lol.

So...naturally, I was extremely stressed out by the situation...

I ended up moving the date to May 19th (a Monday) in order to accomodate said family. I was WICKED lucky because Disney had my venues AND time free on that day, as did Randy Chapman and Rev Kev!

So that is why our date is now May 19th.

MOB DRESS SHOPPING
We ordered my mom's dress while they were visiting for my graduation (High Honors BTW!). She picked a GORGEOUS dress! It came in, and is at her house (in FL) now, so I can't take a picture with it but I love it.

Here is a picture from shopping:

And here is the color. It's called "Ever After".


On this day, we also picked out my older sister's dress. She's Autistic so she can't be a "traditional" bridesmaid. So I gave her the title of "Honorary" Bridesmaid.


The brown is Purple and the pink is Tealness. (Invert of bridesmaids dress)

SIGNING CONTRACT
When we signed out contract, I had my younger sister (MOH) take pictures...yes I'm that much of a dork .




I was wicked excited what can I say?

BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES
This was an adventure.

I really wanted a two-tone dress that was going to be opposite of Mary's dress. I felt this would be the best way to tie everyone together so it was obvious that Mary was one of the bridemaids.

So we went shopping. And this was the dress we originally picked!


We were told that they'd be able to two-tone it the way I liked.

But....they couldn't.

So they tried to tell me to just do the white part as white or cream, it'd look fine.

I was getting wicked frazzled, because that isn't what I imagined. Luckily (and with the help of my AWESOME bridesmaids) I had enough of a backbone to say "No. We'll keep looking".

They tried on a lot of dresses:







We eventually decided on this dress:

The dress is Tealness, and the sash with it is Purple (Remember, the opposite of Mary's).

So all my girls bought their dresses that night! AND everyones came in! You have no idea how awesome that was to see them all come in (I picked up 3 of them). I kept hearing horror stories of "Well..it's 3 months to the wedding and bridesmaid A didn't order yet!". Luckily, my bridesmaids ROCK and ordered the day we went shopping. I just have to order my 2 FSDDs dresses; we are waiting a little longer since they are still growing. Wouldn't want them to outgrow the dress before the wedding!

Anyway here are the dresses (modelled by my bridesmaid Joanna!) PLEASE excuse my messy messy bedroom.



I love the colors together

MOVING
We also have moved since I last updated. THAT was annoying...and also partly why my bedroom is still so messy in the previous picture--we haven't fully settled yet.

BREAKUPS
No, obviously not Tim and I. But in our wedding party we had 2 couples! (My cousins and Nichole and Eric)...and since last update they both broke up . Luckily everyone still is "friendly" towards everyone and they all will still be in the wedding. But that did throw a monkey wrench in the loop!

I still have a couple more updates to do...I'm working on the planning kit now (HOLY DETAILS BATMAN!). There are A LOT of questions here that I haven't thought about. IDK why, but I only knew that I wanted to walk down to O Sol Mio....(more on that later).

But I do have to go...plus there are tons of pictures in this post already, so I don't want to overwhelm ya .

I LOVE your bridesmaid dresses! The colors remind me of Ariel, very under the sea like (but then, most things remind me of Ariel haha ) I think the reverse colors will look beautiful on your older sister's dress as well.

Who would have thought to document signing your contract? I love it!

We moved into our apartment a month and a half ago but still have plenty of boxes to unpack, also in the bedroom (which is what I'm supposed to be working on now but shhhhh - don't tell Kevin!) so I feel your pain!
