Hi, All

So about a year ago my DF started reading the DisBoards in preparation for, and obsession over, our trip in 2007 with a bunch of friends to DisneyWorld. We had been just the two of us in October 2006 - my first time to the World - and fell in love with the Mouse House. Kev discovered FairyTale Weddings and we were hooked!

WE'RE GETTING MARRIED AT WALT DISNEY WORLD!!!


We have enjoyed reading the PJs and TRs and hope that we'll get a good audience and lots of suggestions/help/positive feedback. So here we go....


Kevin and I met in some year/time I can't remember. We went to the same youth group for years and were around each other, but I have no remembrance of us speaking. He was close friends with my brother, and I still don't remember my bro mentioning him much. Then summer before my senior year of HS, and summer before his Sophomore year of college (University of Michigan..go BLUE!), we were playing ultimate frisbee with a group of old youth group friends. I sometimes can be shy and was a bit reluctant to join in the fun , when Kev said, "Jules, are you going to play?" I was stopped in my tracks. He called me by my family nickname, which melted my heart; and gosh darn it, he gave a damn! After that we hit it off.

We didn't start dating until I was in college and that was the beginning of 4.5 years of long distance relationship. I moved to FL after college, he was in Cali. Then I moved. Now we are engaged (as of Valentines 2008) and are encroaching on 5.5 yrs of bliss. It's about time we get married!

Kev proposed by hiding clues around his apartment, which led to the ring.


This is what we've chosen for our wedding so far....

Date: March 30, 2009
Location: WP
Size: 48 guests
Officiant: A man who is married to one of my favorite friends....and thus he is also a beloved friend
Photographer: Randy Chapman...booked him ASAP
Colors: Pink and Green
Reception: California Grill, Napa Room
Characters: None
Wedding Party: Bride, Groom, Matron of Honor, Best Man

Attire: My dress is Demetrios, from the Sposabella collection...look for the one that is the collection cover at the website...it has a choker that I will cut off. I love this dress! Kev isn't allowed to look!

Groom and Groomsmen: Don't know yet

Matron of honor: Kristie Kelly for DFTW Cinderella gown! gorgeous!

Floral:
Mine: not sure yet...either pink roses with greenery or a cascade of orchids

Ceremony/Centerpieces: Thank you to Alisonswonderland who posted this in the Favorite Randy Pics thread


Invitations: From India we were originally going to order them from a place in New York but figured out that they were cheaper ordered directly from India

One day Kev and I were just sitting around. I thought to myself, "What kind of invitations did Cinderella have?" and then I thought "Scrolls!"
So I googled it and this was the result.







The carriage seals are from www.fairytalewedding.com
Invitations in English.

Holy cow I LOVE the scroll idea! I have been working on making my invitations but haven't been thrilled with the idea. I'm gonna try and do a scroll one. I also really like your BM jewelry. I want to get my girls something sparkly as their dresses are black. Overall, I think I LOVE all of your plans so far. Can't wait to hear more!

Thanks!! Just so ya know...the scrolls are from www.indianweddingcard.com You will want to click on "scroll invitations" at the top of the page.
They are pretty inexpensive. Shipping is the most expensive but they ship fast. We got our 5 samples in 3 days! And the cost of samples goes towards your order.

Ceremony/Centerpieces:


Okay, just had another idea about this before bed last night... or in my sleep??
I've been dreaming about wedding planning. It's scary.

Anyway, I think that at the reception I want to have the flowers surrounded by various heights of white pillar candles and tea votive candles. Nothing as tall as or taller than the flowers.

I still don't know what to do for place card holders or favors. We were originally going to get mouse ears personalized and have them do double duty. But they are min 12 dollars each - before personalization. We could probably afford that but if anyone has ideas on how to coordinate that effort or make it affordable, please let us know.

Also any suggestions for what Disney can do for place card holders (I heard they have edible ones ), etc are welcome

Ohh, yay! New PJ

I LOVE the scroll invitations. I'll have to check that out, because we wanted to do something similar. That or message-in-a-bottle. We'll see.

I love your BM dresses! So cute!

Glad to see other UofM fans! Nic is a huge fan. We even drove all the way from here in Michigan down to Orlando for the Capitol One bowl this year, since my dad is a Gator fan.

Don't give up!! Are they old enough to be involved? I hope you find a solution. If you are getting married at Disney, don't forget that they will take most of the work off of your hands.

Hey y'all. I need help picking my shoes!

I'm not used to wearing more that a 2.5 in heel. But I think the platform might help and would also help for pics on the sand/grass.

The platform is a 4 in heel, weighs 7 ounces. The other is 3 3/4 inch, weighs 11 ounces.

I think the sandal goes better with my dress, and it has a shorter heel...but it weighs more.

What do you think?






I'll be checking for votes.
