Oh yay! you just made my day, DF & I have been debating back and forth back and forth about what exactly we wanted to do because we thought 1 park only. Now I can do what I was hoping to do and he can do what he was hoping to do!!! thank you so much for that terrific explanation.

I am so glad you guys are booked for the WL - its DFs favorite resort. The hardest thing is that you need to be ready to make all of your dining reservations as soon as they open. The hardest part is trying to plan where you are going to want to be all the time. You have to find a happy medium btw over scheduling yourself and getting all of your ADRs in.

I would start reading the restaurant board and start trying to get a rough idea of where you want to go.

planning emotional confession

So this is going to sound ridiculous & probably quite spoiled, but this wedding planning business. . .its getting me down. I am so excited & I really cant wait for the wedding, but the waiting is dragging me into the dumps.

I'm reading all of these TR's and, I dont know. I just want to be MRSGAjeepgurl. We live together, we have for over a year now. The wedding is 5 months away and the planning, yea its all but done. There is stuff left to do, but its little stuff. Why make the invites 3 months ahead of time? Right now they are at least in nice boxes where my parents' cats wont eat the bows.

Programs - same deal as invites, favors . . .we are going to donate to the ACS in honor of DF's mother & my middle brother both of whom have passed. All of our guests will be getting a card with two charms symbolizing DF's mom and my bro. Plus there will be a smallish candy bar! See. . .I cant do that yet!

Ladies help me! I'm worried that if I'm getting frustrated and depressed already that after the wedding is over & we buy our house, oh yes btw we are house shopping at the same time the wedding occurs. Yes i am a psycho. The mental and emotional let down will be nuts.

Sides, we live together...DF says he feels married already. I mean we even have joint bank accounts already. Part of me wishes we had just taken the money and run. Blah. sorry this is a depressing post. I know everyone likes the happy times, but sometimes you just get kinda blue.

Don't feel bad... wedding planning is very much an emotional rollercoaster... at least it is/was for me! I get very excited for something just to be brought down by something else! I think it's normal! It'll pick back up for you soon! Things will start sneaking up on you, and the next 5 months will fly right by! Enjoy your "break" in planning, because the closer it gets, the more hectic it is!

Thanks for the great ideas, we know roughly what we want. What I'm really trying to avoid doing is over-planning. But we know CG late seating & HDDR for my redneck.I told him he could dress normal and he'd fit in.

You are proving to be my saving grace. So congrats I bestow upon you a halo. DF doesnt know you and he already appreciates you because every time I get ubber stressed I read the boards and/or check your posts and know I am not alone.

So in lieu of interesting updates, I should have more Saturday because my daddy is going to see me in my wedding dress for the first time when we (Mom, Dad, & I) go to a lovely store called "Bridal Sense." I need a crinoline underskirt and this place allows you to rent them! And dresses can be rented and oh its just heaven.

Anyway, here are some pics of our babies. Mine is the evil cat, his is the pirate dog. Ugh forgive me, the dog pic wont go any smaller.

So obviously my last post didnt go through, so I will try one more time. Here are some pics from our location. I'll post them by location. Ceremony first, then reception hall.

Outdoor gazebo where our ceremony takes place:

And a good pic of the waterfall where the 1st shot was taken from, yes I am riding in a carriage too:

Reception pics, the reception is at the same location as the actual ceremony. Its just down the mountain a little bit as the ceremony is basically on the top of the mountain.

I think this about covers the location pics....soon I'll post hair ideas. I'm really stuck on this one. So help ladies, help.

The location looks gorgeous. If they do the lights and tulle for you, that is really pretty.

I know how you feel about just wanting the wedding to get here. I'm getting married in Puerto Rico, Jan 2010 and everything is planned, except the little things. So if you need support, I totally know how you feel. The most important thing is to just be relieved that everything is done and enjoy the time. Plus having everything done makes the few weeks up until the wedding more relaxed, or at least that is what my wedding planner tells me

I look forward to more postings and pictures!!!

I get into wedding funks sometimes too but what helps me is to go to wedding photography website *the ones with music* and I want for awhile and then I get reallly excited!

Thanks ... its nice to know I am not alone. I am better now that I got to try on my dress again. And talk with DF. I also find that reading Disneymooner's TR's help too.

Aww thanks. I'm trying to relax, but then again I have no wedding planner to tell me that, just my DF and sometimes - he's not who I want to say that.
The tulle is pretty and the lights will be done, but my DM and I are going to add tulle in the wedding colors which will accent the trees since its fern green & copper.
