Obstinate? Perhaps. But I do recall reserving the right to become Bridezilla, Groomzilla and Gayzilla all rolled into one. So thank your lucky stars that we've only gotten to the "obstinate" phase!

Oh well, we've already got it, so I guess we'll stick with it!
No restraints? Sigh.... Guess I better return the wedding gift!

I was pushing for the orange/orange layer to be the bottom and the chocolate/white chocolate layer to be the middle layer. The orange one is WONDERFUL!

And I agree with the lots-o-chocolate rule. Our favors/centerpieces will also involve chocolate.

Wow! Some kinda thread, huh?

You are both going to so love your ceremony and reception with Disney. I've been to a very nice Disney wedding and we still go on and on about how delicious the food was. Their food theme was champagne, chocolate and raspberries, and it was carried throughout the meal. The salad had a choice of raspberry or champagne vinaigrette. The main entree was chicken or filet mignon. To die for, let me tell you. The dessert was the chocolate slipper with mousse and raspberries. They had the ice slipper with raspberry sorbet in the toe. What a production and presentation THAT was!!!

Your choices are magnificent. The cake is definitely art moderne (a bit later than deco with cleaner lines but more rounded edges). The cake topper is perfect. You both have excellent taste.

The decision to have your partner cut into the Son and Mother dance, like Rosie, brought tears to my eyes. It's perfect, isn't it?

If it matters, I too vote against the chicken dance. My cousin had a very dignified reception (hors d'ouerves only, but they were very substantial) where there was live jazz music in the background. It was so nice to be at an adult function that was celebrating something so important, without having to endure all the tacky stuff. Not everyone likes those interactive things, eh?

Please, please take thousands of photos and share them with us! Cannot wait to see how wonderful and beautiful your day is going to be!

Thank you for saying that our choices are magnificent and that we've got excellent taste. I've always thought so, too!

Interesting to hear about the wedding reception with the "champagne, raspberry, & chocolate" food theme. I've never heard of a "food theme" per se. I know we were shooting for "vaguely Italian" but never thought of it as a "theme" exactly, I just had never been to a family wedding where there wasn't some kind of pasta with tomato sauce. To me that's just what wedding food is, so I wanted to make sure it was there for ours. I guess that's silly and sentimental of me, but what are you gonna do.

I also was pretty adamant about having dancing at the reception. Family weddings have always meant a lot of dancing. I can remember dancing with my cousin at weddings when we were very little. Like 4 & 6 years old. And the phrase "I'll dance at your wedding" or "I'll dance at his/her wedding" is thrown around a lot in our family. Sort of shorthand for saying "You're family, I don't judge you, and will celebrate your joys with you" kind of a thing. Since I was told that a lot when I was coming out, I figured I'd better give them the chance to actually do the dancing. And when my cousin (the one I used to dance with way back when) asked if children were invited or if we were doing an "adults only" reception, I told her that I could never deny her 4 year old daughter the chance to have happy memories of dancing at a wedding. Having the family there means having ALL of the family there. Little ones too. And I look forward to dancing with my "neice". And with her mom, too.

Which brings us back to Scott dancing with my mom. It's an important symbol, I think. That mom and dad have a new son, and that Scott has a new family. And that when you're happy for someone, you dance at their wedding. The symbols are really imporant. Especially since with out any legal status, the symbols are ALL we have.

Absolutely. Symbols define our world.

Dancing at "your" wedding is a family phrase here too. It's an important one. Doesn't mean the dance has to be the chicken dance though, eh? LOL.

I thought the repeated flavors of chocolate, raspberry and champagne were very nicely done at the Disney wedding I attended.

In my family, pasta and sauce is a feature at EVERY family gathering, from christening parties to funeral gatherings, so I do understand that!

You'll have a glorious time! All the very best to both of you!

Well, you never know do you? LOL. Are you originally from the northeast?

Perhaps it's just the cohort group effect, eh?
