The Guests

We will only be inviting 8 people as thats the limit for Sunset Pointe but it also is the perfect number for us.

Guest List:

Mum and Step-Dad - don't know we are engaged yet but are expecting it and know the Disney plan which they think is a great idea

Dad - has no idea, is not likely to be happy about getting married at Disney, I am anticipating a big arguement

DFs Mum, Dad and brother - have been told we are engaged but don't know about disney yet, his parents are not likely to be happy about the plan but there won't be an arguement, Mike's not sure if his brother will come coz of the cost

Best Man and Bridesmaid - are best friends are a couple as well, they don't know we are engaged yet but we had told them that we wanted to get married in Disney and they said they would save up and come but I worry that the cost will be too much for them

I will keep you updated as we tell people.

Up next what I've done so far...

What I've done so far

Booked Randy Chapman for the photography to do the wedding and firework cruise.

Plus I've bought a few bits from eBay as I've spotted them.

A cake slice and knife:


A pair of champagne glasses:


And some wedding minne ears with veil:


when I've told my Mum a week on Friday I will begin to look for The Dress.

Looking forward to hearing how the dress shopping goes...

Sounds like your plans are coming together Claire, I can't wait to see The Dress I always thought i'd like a small wedding too: It'll probably be WDW or Vegas for us

You're going to Vegas in 2 months, is there something we don't know about?

Lovely to read all about your magical wedding plans Claire - it all sounds stunning and a dream come true. Makes me wish I could do it all again and have a Disney wedding - my dream now is to hopefully renew our vows one day on the Disney Magic. Look forward to hearing more about your plans and preparations!

Height Issue

As well as being very top heavy I am also very short just 5 Foot 1, where as DF is 6 Foot 3, so I have a dilemma, do I wear high heels all day and have sore feet, flats and we might look a bit odd in photos, or heels for the photos then flats later on and let my dress drag across the floor? I am leaning towards the last option.

Thank you. A VR on the Disney Magic would be wonderful and I believe quite reasonabley priced.

Hubby is 6'5... and i'm 5'2 (on tiptoes). I don't actually reach his shoulder and was worried about the photos looking naff, so I wore HIGH heels!! Now, i'm usually a chucks kind of girl, and I own ONE pair of heels so it was important to me that I didn't end up tottering around like Aunt Sally on the big day... so I wore them around the house... ALOT. I'd be skipping around doing the hoovering in my jamas and 4 inch heels!! The only time I took them off was when we were on the boat and I really didn't notice them all day. I'm glad I wore them, because in some of the photos hubby still looks like he's having a problem bending to kiss me etc, so it would have been so much worse with flats on. Thats why I also chose to wear my hair high on the top of my head to give me some more height in the photos.

Our first dance at our reception over here was a disaster!!! My shoes had ankle straps and i'd just kicked them off under the table when the DJ announced us to dance, and didn't have time to put them back on again!! The fantastic dance we were GOING to do was quickly aborted for a shuffle around the dance floor as the height difference was just TOO much, and poor hubby ended up picking me up half way through the song to dance as he was fed up having to stoop so much!!

Oh.... parcel is in the post!!

More Wedding Dress Ideas

I looked up some more wedding dresses online last night that i'd spotted in a Bridal magazine.

This one i'm not sure if its too much detail, I want it quite simple:
