cant wait to see wht u do with ur hair. i'm wearing a strapless dress and planning on either having my hair all down an curly (which should come down to jus below my shoulders) or half up/half down but still curly. currently i have a friend making a tiara for me so i'm thinking mayb a little bit up on top of my head so the tiara stands out then loose curls but i'v not given this much more thought yet. I was dead set against a veil to start off with but after having many thrown on me in different ways while trying on dresses i'v kinda been considering one.
(ps my hair is also very thick an goes frizzy in florida temps so will be interesting 2 see how they deal with it)

perfect shoes for a princess like u i love how they make the heart as well when put together like u said

i cant decide between the save the dates i love the both thats a great design an the colouring goes perfectly with all the photos

thats good u could use the deposit for the at home celebration/shower it would'v been such a shame for all that money to go to waste! an i agree u should invite people who r not being invited to the wedding, that way they still feel included an can still celebrate with u both

Hey Debra !!
Well all of my updates are getting closer to my current planning so my updates may be further apart now.

Thanks for all of the kind words

Still haven't made any decisive plans with flower girl dresses or my hair but I will post as soon as I do

Finally had a chance to add another update today. Thanks for following along

I'm sorry that Il Mulino was almost what you wanted, but not exactly what you wanted. I think it's a great venue for receptions. I'm sorry that Fulton's were so unhelpful and rude, I'm surprised! I'm so excited for you to have your cocktail hour and reception at the Rix! They were one of the first places I looked at but then I dismissed them thinking they'd be crazy expensive. I'm glad I went back and investigated it properly because it turns out they have a great menu and pricing! I agree that it doesn't need any extra decor (we won't be adding any) and I know what you mean about the Moroccan vibe, I think it looks a little more Moroccan than Mexican. That will be really convenient if your guests stay at CSR

Reception Changes & Adding a Dessert Party

Reception Changes & Adding a Dessert Party *2 Month Update*

So I just realized I seriously have not updated my PJ in months. So many changes to fill in on. And as of yesterday our big day is 2 months away!!!!

Lets start with the change of reception- we ultimately decided to not do the Rix Lounge, I loved the idea of it and that we could have a more traditional reception but something about it just didnt feel right. We decided to have a dinner reception at O'hana. It was one of our favorite Disney restaurants and holds a special place in our heart. The pricing is great, its very family oriented and has a fab view of Bay Lake and MK. We called and spoke with the restaurant manager at 180 days out. She was wonderful to work with and very accomodating.

Our ceremony at the Swan did not change- we did move our ceremony time from 4:00, to 3:00 just to make it easier with our 5:00 O'hana seating.

We decided to add a Welcome Dessert Party the night before at Epcot. We reserved United Kingdom Lochside and went with a customized menu. Since we are a Swan Wedding- we booked this through Disney Catered Events. Our planner was fabulous and very helpful.

Our dessert party menu:
Key Lime cupcakes with toasted marshmallow
Mickey Mousse Domes (from Chef Mickey's)
Vanilla Mickey Cake pops (like the ones from Goofy's candy co) in purple, pink and blue....our three favorite colors
Fresh fruit salad
coffee, tea & fruit punch

The Mousse domes are one of my favorite desserts from WDW and we both loved the cake pops from DTD when we went for our planning session in February.

Up next: Our February trip to the World for our mini planning session & My birthday

Our February trip to the World for our mini Planning Session

Our February trip to the World for our mini planning session & my birthday

Even though we do not technically have a "planning session" like DFTW Brides- we decided we needed some sort of planning trip to make sure we liked everything we booked. And of course we wanted to meet with Tasty Too for our cake tasting!!
So I had contacted Just Marry and Tasty Too to make sure we could have everything done in the same day. At this time- we were also contemplating Il Mulino for our dinner, so we did schedule a tasting with them for our chosen menu.
We winded up cancelling our tasting before we left because we decided we wanted to do O'hana instead. Il Mulino was really nice to work with and if we would have kept them for our wedding dinner I know we would have been happy with our choice

First stop was the Swan- we met Diana in the lobby and she took us on a tour



Walking down to Crescent Terrace



Walkway to Crescent Terrace



Our ceremony site!!! Probably my favorite thing about this location is the view- Its a great view of the Boardwalk and the water. We saw the friendship boats go by a couple of times and it was just a really romantic and relaxing scene



Looking over at the Dolphin



The beach ceremony location ( set up literally where the hammock is in the second set of trees)
Im glad we decided early on not to go with this location, it is pretty to be next to the water- but it was very loud and open being that close to the playground.



the West Courtyard- this location was very pretty and private- but our guest count was too big for this location



A sample of the ceremony chairs




Diana was very helpful at our meet up- she was really sweet in person and answered all of our questions. She helped ease alot of our anxiety with planning a destination wedding and walked us through pretty much how we wanted the whole ceremony to be. We also decided to have our first dance and cake reception at Crescent Terrace before our O'hana dinner- Diana pointed out great spots on the lower platform for us to do it. Having our planning session with her really helped put things into perspective for us

We left the Swan and went to Downtown Disney for some shopping and then headed out to meet with Heather for our cake tasting.
We got lost trying to find her shop, but once we got there it was really nice.

We sat down and Heather gave us an album to look through with her past work- then she came over and sat with us and asked us exactly what we wanted. I had made a Pinterest board with some suggestions- so I showed her all the pictures and ideas that I had and as I told her about my dream cake she started to draw a sketch.

Heather brought out a tray of samples (We went with my BM and her fiance and the sample sizes were more than enough for the 4 of us) The cake flavors were AMAZING- it was so hard to make up our mind. You seriously cannot go wrong with any of the choices.



We chose Amoretto cake for our top tier- with two layers of Amoretto filing
Coconut cake with raspberry and coconut filing for the middle tier
and vanilla cake with boston creme and chocolate ganache filling for the bottom tier

By the time we were done sampling- Heather had came out with a sketch of our cake!! It was everything I could have dreamed of and the pricing was great!!

We decided a few weeks ago to change the bottom tier from vanilla to Amoretto (to match the top tier) with the Amoretto filling. It was so good we wanted to make sure we had alot of it!!

Our planning session was very helpful- it really helped us feel better about our decisions. We had planned earlier that week to go to Ohana for breakfast since our planning session day was on my birthday- but we had something come up and had to cancel- we have eaten at Ohana plenty of times so we know we will be happy with our wedding dinner there.

The only thing I wish we would have done was made arrangements to meet with our photographers. We had used Randy Chapman for our engagement photos and planned on using him for the wedding day- but we had some issues booking him. Id rather not post them here as I dont want to say anything negative about him- I think it was just an error/miscommunication somewhere along the line and we werent able to get it finalized.

We booked David & Vicki Arndt for our wedding day and are super excited about working with them. In fact- I wish we would have contacted them for pricing for our engagement photos because their work seems to be more our style. We wanted to try and set up for a second engagement shoot with them during our planning session- but we were on very tight time constraints and it just wasnt going to work.
