Well, my Dad's family (the full blooded Irish side) is originally from the Boston area.

My Mom's family (Sicilian and Slovenian) hail from Southern Colorado. Since they're the pasta and sauce side of the family, I'm guessing it's just the cohort group effect, thingy.

(and now I'm off to Google "cohort group effect" )

Thanks so much for posting here about the process. I would love to do a wedding at WDW, but honestly, it's more money than we would ever freely part with for a non-legally recognized event, I am not even sure if it was legal if we would do it. We have such a small family and so few friends that we would want to share the event with that it also just doesn't make much sense.

I am enjoying the chance to see it all unfold without the pain in the wallet. lol I wish you guys all the happiness in the world.

Errrrmmmm my biological Dad was the full blooded Irish side too. My Mom is the Italian. Errrrmmmm Calabrian. No Slovenian though, although I do have a Polish Aunt. (Married one of my mother's brother's during WWII).

Small world, huh? LOLOLOL.

It is indeed. Do people ask you if you have a really bad temper when you tell them you're an Italian/Irish mix?



I get that question ALL the time!

Okay, since I just posted it on another thread, I'll post our invitations here as well. We're aiming to get them in the mail next week!

We're doing a tri-fold invitation (actually, it's this one: https://invitationconsultants.com/in...m=3WFD11259302)

Our names are on the front.

Here's the quote for the middle: “We love because it's the only true adventure”-Nikki Giovanni, American Poet

And here's the wording.

"Because you have shared in our lives
by your friendship and love, we
Scott (Last Name)
and
Rob (Last Name)
invite you to share
in our Adventure
as we celebrate our Partnership
and loving Commitment"

And then date and time are listed. Oh, location too!

Congrats! and Love the cake! The Mom-son-son dance sounds like a great idea/thing to do, but left me w/ a question... What about Dad? I'm just curious to know how you are including your dad in all this since there's no bride to walk down the isle or Father-Daughter dance, etc?
My partner and I have thrown around the cermony idea for years and just have fun planning things that we'd probably never do, but never figured out what to do w/ the dads.

P.S. - if I've stuck my foot in my mouth about asking about dad.. I apologize in advance!

Not at all. My Dad and I are very close as well. I just don't think he'd be comfortable dancing with either Scott or with me.

I'd always said that if/when I got married, I would want to walk down the aisle with both of my parents. With Scott's parents no longer with us, it didn't seem right to do that. So Scott and I will walk down the aisle together. Two grown men, making the journey side by side.

That does seem to leave my Dad out in the cold. But we've got a very special job for him to do.

Dad will be delivering the last toast of the evening. Right before we cut the cake my brother and sister (who will be standing up with me) will give the first toast. They'll start by pouring a glass of champagne in honor of everyone who can't be with us, whether due to time or distance. Then they'll give their toast. After that, Scott's best friend and a close friend of the two of us will give their toasts (they're standing up with Scott). The last toast of the evening will be my Dad, who has a way with words that will surely have us all in tears. (Which is why he's not going first.)

You're welcome!

Not sure how I missed this post earlier. Must've been lack of sleep from too much Fringe Festival.

I just wanted to let you know that we're doing a "Wishes" wedding, which is customized to our desires and has a lot of options; BUT Disney also offers an "Escape" wedding. With this option, you pay for a package where you get to have a small ceremony (up to 18 guests) and a cake and champagne reception, and that's it. I want to say the Escape package starts around $4500. So for a small group and a limited budget, and Disney Fairy Tale Wedding isn't that far out of reach. Most people do then have a meal at a Disney restaurant afterword, but it's not required.

Just a thought!

Oh thank you for the new links! That is one wicked invitation! I know everyone will love it. :yes:

Once again, you two have excellent taste! (Or is it Tolliver's influence)?

I love all the pics, your choices are impeccable, and can I say here I like your style... It is going to be an incredible day for the two of you....Hugs, Hugs, Hugs!!! Also, if you do not want the chicken dance, don't have it.. it is your day..

When my eldest daughter got married, she said absolutely no.. without a doubt no, Shania Twain, Feel Like a Woman.. what does he play, you got it Shania Twain, Feel Like a Woman... I thought my daughter was going to rip his eyes out, but the place went wild and everyone was dancing. Go figure..and yet the ones that the family had picked up to be played, he did not play. Needless to say, we would never recommend this DJ or his company....

PS, the invitations, the wording, well I am sitting here sniffling.. beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

In my not-so-humble opinion, the invitations came out great! We used a more art deco looking font and blue ink, so the letters show up really well on the silver paper. VERY cool.

And Tolliver did have influence on one of the invitations. I was glad that we'd ordered spare copies when I discoverd that he'd snagged one and shredded it. He really enjoyed the being chased all over the house and patio with it, too.
