We have officially paid our cruise off & I'm good to make our cabana reservation on jan 2nd. Now I just have to wait until jan 3rd to call WDW to change our honeymoon reservations to upgrade to Coronado Springs & use the discount that is rumored to come out that day.

Well our wedding guests are dropping like flies. My mother & her husband cancelled on Friday and Terin's brother's family cancelled today. We officially have no children going on our Disney cruise. There are now only 8 of us total including terin's parents, my dad & step-mom and two of my best friends. On the plus side we will all fit in one cabana.

Yesterday was huge, we hit our 120 day mark with the cruise & I was able to reserve family cabana #9! I showed Terin's mom pics of the cabanas on the 1st so she was as excited as me when I texted telling her I reserved the one we wanted. One huge bonus about guest having to cancel is being able to include everyone in things like the cabana & hopefully one dining table.
To push my luck even further I suggested that we call Disney to change our reservation @ WDW with our visa before the promotion went public today. After 30 min on hold we were able to change to Coronado Springs with a water view and extend our trip by an additional day. The increased day made the overall cost go up by $450 but it was still a large savings with the V95 promotion.
I will admit that prior to calling Disney I had a slight meltdown bc I was trying to explain to DF that by the time we get off the cruise, rent a car & drive to Orlando from Miami we're only going to get a few hours at Hollywood Studios. Luckily for me DF thought we were coming home on the 11th & that was not what I had originally booked so we added a day and can spend more time at the parks!

Ok wedding planning mode has kicked back in. While helping DF's grandparents move this weekend we found 2 boxes of Mason jars. I'm really excited about this find because my plan for our reception is burlap, lace & mason jars. I've pinned some lovely things on Pinterest.
Today I called to reserve the community room near DF's parents. I've attended & catered weddings in the community room and it is a great location for lots of our guests. Even better it's $160 for 6 hours and they will allow me to come in early to decorate.
I decided that I wanted to do something unique for our reception invites so I used a free online program to turn one of our engagement photos into a cartoon. Then I made a card on snapfish with the photo on the front & reception info on the back. I used a promo code for 40% off + free shipping.
DF & I have a favorite local bakery & we priced cakes with them tonight. They charge the same amount no matter the purpose of the cake, so our cake will be $95 before taxes.
Every penny I save on our at home reception is more money I can spend on our cruise. We booked our Palo reservations for the second night of our cruise but I still need to look at activities for our day at Key West.
Meredith emailed me the 2013/2014 wedding planning guide and it appears that my flower and cake choices are still available at no extra cost. I could send in my planning guide now, it's all becoming so real!

This weekend we registered at target and on amazon.com. Terin acted like he wasn't very interested until he got to use the gun at target & then he was looking for stuff we need.
Our invites arrived in the mail today, sorry I haven't taken a pic yet. So then we headed to hobby lobby so I could get stuff to make our RSVP cards. I borrowed mad lib idea that I found on Pinterest. We also got lucky because card products, wedding supplies & ribbon were all on sale. I then used a 40% off coupon to get a 100 pack of tea light candles. I love not paying full price for things. Now I just have to wait for my address labels to come in and I can send out my reception invites. I'll try to post pics in the next few days.

I had my first dress fitting today. I took my FMIL with me. My dress fit perfectly and the only alterations that I'm having done are cups sowed in (I'm extremely small chested), the length taken up and a bustle added. I go back on march 6th to try it on and hopefully bring it home for good. I have to admit I watched every bit I took last week & did the treadmill more, so we had a celebratory brownie on our way home.

Today was a big day, we booked our airfare and ordered the wedding cake for our reception. We're going to have 50 servings of cake and an assortment of cupcakes. Now we just have to book our hotel for the night before the cruise.

I faxed in my planning guide and Meredith has already emailed to confirm that she received it. She will be calling me soon to go over it with me. Only 77 days to go! DF paid off our wedding cake for our home reception today, everything seems to be smooth sailing. I do need to figure out when we need to mail in our wedding license application.

Life has been really busy the last few months including a hospital stay follow by the death of a grandparent. Today is my 45 day mark, now to anxiously check my email all day waiting to hear from Meredith.

Amber, I am so sorry to hear that. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.


45 day mark, getting closer! I hope she emails you ... I might just send her a note so she doesn't forget!

I emailed Meredith earlier & still no word. Don't they know we're anxiously awaiting the details of the ceremony?

I have my confirmation! I had requested the Cadillac Lounge; however, it is unavailable. I was assigned deck 7 but Meredith is getting it changed to the Outlook Café. I'm extremely fair skinned and while I don't mind wear SPF 70 for the rest of the cruise something about sunscreen and my wedding dress doesn't sound appealing. Our ceremony will be at 4pm on May 3rd while we are at Key West. My flowers are the Garden bouquet and I got the Magic photo package. My cake is vanilla/raspberry butter cream on the top layer and chocolate fudge/chocolate ganache on the bottom layer. Our music selections are:
Prelude - kiss the girl
Processional - when you wish upon a star
Recessional - zip-a-dee-doo-dah
Cake cutting - under the sea
1st dance - can you feel the love tonight
Additional songs - a whole new world, you'll be in my heart and you've got a friend in me

Now just to survive the next 45 days without going crazy. I need a vacation!!!
