I ordered my dress

I ordered my dress and hubby's matching shirt today!!!! YIPEE!!! I am so excited. Hubby does not know, but 'oh well' he will wear it, lol. I haven't gotten anything in the mail from DFTW yet I only have the online info that was sent to me (basically it is the planning guide) that I am to fill out and fax back. I know what flowers I am going to pick. I couldn't save a big photo of them, so it might be pretty small, sorry.

I love this tropical bouquet for me


and this for hubby


I have read about doing a sand ceremony. We didn't have a unity candle or anything like that when we got married the first time, I thought the sand ceremony looked nice. Only problem, I cannot find an answer to whether we could do that on board and be able to bring our sand home.

Due to customs and such, I can't bring my flowers or cake off the ship

Well I guess thats all I have for now. Thanks for following along.

Patricia,
That's too bad about the flowers and cake. Did the Disney Cruiseline people tell you that? Since our cruise was over Valentine's Day they were selling flowers on board the ship. They made an announcement about the roses saying you may or may not get to keep them once you got to customs. I did see someone carrying the roses off the ship when we were disembarking. I am not sure what happened when they got to customs but I know I saw a little girl with roses getting off the ship and heading towards customs the same time as us. They may have taken them from her once she got to a certain point. It is such a pretty bouquet it would be a shame to not get to enjoy it as long as possible.

Kelly,

I've heard different things so I guess I won't be sure until it happens. I'll definately 'try' and take them with me. I've been given a heads up to ask them to wrap my cake really good and I could put it in a suitcase!!! (just hope it doesn't squish out into my clothes, hahaha )

I really hope to be able to bring them home since they are so pretty and you don't get much to remember the special day with.

Hi pjstevens- OMG I had to laugh when I started reading your report. It sounds just like me and my husband. We married in March 1981 and also went to the Pocono's for our HM! We have two children, our son married in June 2005 and our daughter was also a CP working at EPCOT's Land Boat ride.

Fast forward...My DH and I renewed our vows on the Disney Wonder in March, 2006. Our ceremony was held outside on Deck 7 at 4pm on a Friday while in Nassua. Cathy Ingle from DFTW was our land coordinator. We started planning our VR about 18 months before. We met with her in Oct. 2005 but did most planning via email. It was a small ceremony, 9 of us all together.

We did have the onboard photographer. We chose the photo package for $400. Also the organist was fantastic. I dont remember if that was included in the $1000 VR price. (the price has since gone up to I believe, $1800) My daughter and daughter-in-law both held the flower wands, my son and husband both had beautiful boutineers. My bouquet was beautiful. I will have to dig out some photos so you can see everything...or go to http://s257.photobucket.com/albums/h...afilter=images you may need to scroll down to see the photos.

There are other great gift surprises waiting for you...but I won't spoil it!

Let me know if I can help.

Oops, I forgot to mention, just take a large tupperware container with you so that you can take your leftover cake off the ship. pack it in your suitcase inside a zip-lock bag...as for the flowers I had no problem taking mine off the ship. The rule of thumb is if Disney provided the flowers for the VR then they were created on US land and therefore you can take them off the ship.

And one more thing...we had candybars made that had our names, date and 25th Anniversary on them in silver paper. We also bought custom M&M's. We had stateroom gifts delivered to our guests as well....Our reception was in PALO's...it was the best reception ever! We had a wonderful server and he brought us every food dish they make in the kitchen...we ate for hours it seemed. they even served more of the wedding cake too if anyone wanted it. And leftovers were delivered to the staterooms. It was great... I will add more as I relive it here at work with my door closed!

Did you have a pj or a tr? I think I stumbled across your photos somewhere in my massive search of the boards looking for info. I love you photos. Everything looks beautiful. How many days was your cruise. We are only four nights and I've been told I can only have our cermony on the 'sea' day which is the day before we arrive back at port. I read that you had yours while you were at Nassau, correct? Was that an option back then?

Of course the price has gone up, but I think I got in just before an increase cause I was quoted $1500 and I read online (on the disneyweddings site) that its $18something for the four night cruise vow renewal.

Thanks for stopping by my pj.

Sand Ceremony

Ok, I've done some research and found that I should be fine if I want to do a sand ceremony. Since we'll be bringing the sand from the US, shouldn't be any problem bringing it back into the US... this is also what I heard about the flowers!!!!!

I had found a nice sand ceremony set but didn't buy it before it ended (on ebay) and of course can't find any like it. It was a smaller one and has a cork top (so that way I can make sure the sand doesn't spill out on the way home). Hoping the person will relist soon, but not sure.

Has anyone come across info for sand ceremony's (like wording, where to get, etc)?

I can't wait for September, I'm getting more excited each day.
