Everything looks really great. I'm an ebay fiend too - we aren't getting married until December next year and I already have table confetti, shoes, hair pins etc.

Can't beat ebay!

Updates - I booked the Honeymoon!

I booked us for Sept 3rd Disney Wonder 3 night Cruise! It was the first thing I could book so I got it out of the way. I used Mousefan travel who is the travle partner for Allears.net and they were awesome! Very helpful. I'm going to use them to book everything for our trip I think. I got us $100 shipboard credit too.

Alot of people on the boards keep asking what else they should be doing. I figured that I would say what I'm doing exactly at this phase so if anyone else is wondering, they would have an idea.

I am 1 year and 7 months out just about and this is what I'm doing.

My initial guest list is done - we have a total of 54 guests and will alter this upon feedback based on who is interested.

I have a budget prepared based on these boards of how much each aspect costs and what we will be able to save.

I have booked our site visit for this Sept. I am part of a timeshare vacation club so we are doing our vacay cheaply. I plan to book a car rental through hotwire and flight through Southwest. We are not expecting this stay to be the most luxurous stay, we are going primarily for wedding stuff.

I just booked our honeymoon with Mousefan travel. It was the very first thing I could book so I got it out of the way.

Next week I am applying for my passport so I can check it off my list.

Right now I have been contacting and requesting infomation from photographers, videographers, and Officiants. I am very close to selecting Rnady Chapman. I really like STVS but I am still researching other potential videographers

I am interested in Rev Jack and Rev Kevin as Officiants. I plan on meeting the Officiants when I am in Florida in Sept.

Df and I have been researching the perfect resort for our stay, we still haven't decided.

I have been researching which bridal shops I would look to go to for wedding dresses. So far I have selected Arial Bridal, Bridal Town, and Davids Bridal. I plan on visiting David's Bridal alone because I am off for a week and want to get an idea of what type of dress I like best.

I have been searching for Toasting glasses, flower girl baskets, and the Misc. stuff for a wedding. I was really hesitant to buy this stuff this far in advance but I missed out on something I really liked because it's not for sale anymore. but I'm nervous because I'm afraid that once I buy something I'll find somehting else I like more. I figured that once its gets closer, I'll buy my dress and then have to search the internet for jewelry, tiara, veil, etc. Once I have that, it' on to invites, and then welcome bag stuff. And then I'll be searching for programs and menus, etc. So my thoughts have been, if I can get it done now, get it done!

So here's the checklist:

Honeymoon: Booked

Initial Shopping Appt at David's : waiting for call back

Book Randy as soon as I get Df's approval

Contacted officiants and Videographers

Contacted and recieved info from Carolyn Ann's

getting passport next week

Add addresses to guest list excel sheet

Search and purchase Misc. stuff

Pick resort (we still have time, might go resort hopping during our Sept. visit)

Make Appts at other bridal shops

Hopefuly this helps other brides wondering what they should be doing at this stage!

More updates to come!!!

Invitations Samples

So about 6-8 months ago i found the invite kits at Target on sales. I love Target! But not sure if I still want to do these invites.





here's some other samples I requested (for free of course)


I really like this one - it's fits my seaside fairytale theme






And here's a sample I paid for. I'm looking to send out as much info as possbile as organized as possible and this is why I love Cards and Pockets. I bought a sample pack, and some color samples form them.



Ok that's all for now, let me know your votes!!!!

You have so much done already, I am very impressed! I'm a year and 2 weeks out and I haven't even thought about my favors, garter, guestbook... wow I need to get my butt into gear!

PS: I love the first invitation with the sandcastle... very seaside fairytale!

So we set the date that we would like, September 1st 2009. We set this date because My DF really wants to do the Disney Cruise and we haven't been emotionally attached to any date so we have been choosing our date based on cruise dates and the low season in Disney. It's not exactly low season because its the week before Labor day but that date helps both my bridesmaids as well. My MOH is about to graduate with her education degree and goes tomorrow for interviews for schools. Plus my bridesmaid will be 18 and will be entering college then so hopefully both their school schedules start after Labor Day, which is 9/7 in 2009.

So September 1st it is! Does anyone know if how hard it is to get the date that you want?

Ok here's some pictures of some items that either I like or that I have purchased already. I have alot of stuff I put away for the wedding and I'll take pics of that later.

This is my engagement ring. This pic is from when I got engaged in Cindy's Royal Table



Last year sometime, i went crazy buying stuff for the wedding and then reality set in and I thought... Where am I going to put this stuff, or better yet, how am I going to get it down to Disney? Anyways I bought 7 Sand Castles from Ebay. They were really a good deal, but now I don't know if we will use them. Here's a pic of kinda what they look like - I'll get a better pic later.



I also bought my guest book and garter off of ebay new for $6 together. It was a simple white garter with a sparkle starfish and a tossing garter. And the Guest book was a plain white bookwith blue ribbin and starfish. I'm not crazy about them now, but both of those things were relatively unimportant to be in the overall scheme of things. I may buy another guest book and garter because I found a whole set I love and it still goes with the pen I bought that I love too. This is the pen but mine is completely in white



Here's the cake I love... I stole it from someone's planning journal I hope you don't mind



The server I'm planning to get from DFTW



I really want some sort aqua as my wedding color I actually have a page from a bridal magazine of a program with ribbons that's my inspiration. I would like to use a range of blues and greens as my colors. I'll scan the pic when I'm at my mom's next.

Here's is the garter and flower basket I really, really want. I am really thinking of buying them now but I'm not even close to getting bridesmaid dresses so I'm not sure what color I'll purchase but this is the color I want.






I really like these two styles of dress but not sold on them. I really want an off the shoulder type sleeve. ut I like the bodice and pick-up skirt. This may change once I try on dresses! I also am in love with the third..it's not anything like my picture in my head but I Love it... But I really want a big skirt since I never wore one for my proms.







Ok here for my rant about the Disney Princess line. I was really dissappointed. I don't think they look princess inspired at all, except for a few of the belle ones. This is the only thing I like out of the princess line. i was really hoping they would have a seashell tiara like Swarovski did with the Cinderella line. Oh well... Here is the only piece I like from the Disney Collection... But it's probably like $3000 or something



more to come anything day.. gotta go take a shower
Welcome back! Everything looks great so far. I think you are more organized than me I WANT that Ariel necklace too! Any idea how much it is? I can't seem to find a price. As far as I have read on the boards, you can sign a contract at the site visit and you can get your AP after you sign the contract. A couple of brisdes on here did that but they said they had to contact their pallner in advance. But maybe they already signed the contract at that point?
