I asked: What's the alternate indoor location in case of rain?

This is a special case for the Sunset Point. Currently, the backup location at Disney's Polynesian Resort is under refurbishment. So, you have two (2) options as a Sunset Point bride:

1) Book a "guaranteed" backup at the Wedding Pavilion. This would reserve Sunset Point and Disney's Wedding Pavilion for your special day. Therefore, the experience price would be for the Premium level $5,500.00.

2) Take the "non-guaranteed" backup option. This would mean that if there is inclement weather on the day of the event, we would utilize space at any convention center on Walt Disney World property. This experience price would be for the Deluxe level $4,500.00.

Due to these bookings, Sunset Point is now at an 8 month in advance booking period. So, for an event on December 30, 2009, we can begin looking at availability on April 30, 2009.

Its making me think, I might book a different location at 12 months out then change at 8 months to Sunset Point to make sure I get my date.

CLAIRE!!
I like the first dress on the second page. I'm a huge fan of tafetta and I like the pin thing on the side.
I have the exact opposite height problem. Chris is 5'2 and I'm5'7. Highly annoying. At least you have a zillion choices for shoes. It's really hard to find cute flats!!
My shoe suggestion... the path to Sunset Pointe is really long and up a hill and it's made to look like stones. I might go for a wedge heel so that you have a little more support.

I think the first gown is gorgeous. I am also very short and when I look at all the pix of gowns I tried on, those that had a lot of very visible detailing at the hem immediately made me look shorter. I hope you'll try on lots of styles and decide which looks best on you. It is also really helpful to have someone take full-length pix so that you can see what the overall impression is that is created by the shape, line and detailing of the gown. Most importantly, have a great time!

Is that tafetta? I always wondered what that was and Organza (sp?) I don't know anything about fabric and materials, just what I like the look of!

I think the pin thing will emphasise my small waist rather than my big hips, well thats what I hope. I'm worried everything will just drown me and look stupid, most dresses look better on tall people.

I think I will go for a wedge as i'm very unstable, I fall over a lot. It must be hard looking for flat wedding shoes as the makers assume you want a heel. Could you buy a plain pair and jazz them up?

I agree with the full length picture

Having pictures helped SO much in deciding on a gown. I felt they really looked different when you were looking at them in a mirror and when you were looking at a photograph of you in the dress. I took a few pictures of the gowns I tried on - printed them out - and put them in a small pocket photo album (one that held around 24 pictures). This way I could carry it around with me and look at them every once in a while. I got a much better view of them this way. You could really see what it would look like on your body and what your wedding photographs will look like. It was also nice to have a picture with me when I was shopping around for accessories.

I also like the first gown out of the two you are looking at.

Linda

Thanks for the tip about detailing round the hem. I thought any detail might look squashed together as it wouldn't be a very long dress.

In the UK now lots of shops don't let you take photos and charge you to try on dresses as they are finding lots of people waste the shops time then go and buy it online or have it made from the photos, it was in the news recently.

I plan to have a fabulous time!
