Talking Anjanette & Jason Disneyland Hotel PJ (May 8, 2010) -- We're back! 5/15

Hi everyone!

I'm relatively new the the forums, and after about a year and a half of lurking, I've finally decided to step out of the internet-shadows and make myself known. So, please be gentle! I'll try to be as organized as possible with my PJ!

You ladies have all been awesome sharing your details in your planning journals, and it's been very helpful to me! Lots of wonderful ideas, for sure. So thank you!

Okaaay, first things first! My name is Anjanette and I'm 24 years old. My fiance's name is Jason and he's 34 years old. We live together in southern California.

Our Story
The two of us met as many couples do, through our workplace. I'm painfully shy in person, and it took months of working together before we started to develop a friendship. We used the wonders of the internet (MySpace and AIM) to better get to know one another. We'd always had the common interest of being huge into Disneyland, and the Nightmare Before Christmas; however, we had no idea just how much we really had in common until we started to talk much more. The more we talked, the quicker and harder we both fell for one another! We had planned a trip to Disneyland a while before that, and at that point were counting down the days. We had our very first date in the park on May 1, 2007 and we've been inseparable ever since!

Here's a recent picture of the two of us at Disneyland:



The Proposal Story
On December 15, 2007 the two of us had gone to Disneyland with my parents. Jason had me completely fooled into believing we were meeting up with his family to go Christmas shopping for his nieces. Being the gullible silly-head I am, I bought it.

After spending some time all together, and having gone on a few rides, we made our way back to a trading pin cart we often frequented. Jason told me to stay with the others while he got me something. There was a new pin out I had been lusting after, so I figured that's what it was. Sure enough, he comes back with a small bag. I reached inside and see the pin. He then tells me to take it off its backing and put it on. This was strange to me, because I never wear the pins. So I go to take it off its backing, and a ring falls off the back... Jason gets down on one knee to pick it up and pops the question!



Needless to say, I said yes.



My ring:


And with the wedding band (it's a set).

Plans Thus Far!
Since the two of us got to know eachother thanks to our interest in Disneyland, he proposed to me there, and we both just love the place... there was no need for us to shop venues! We both knew a DFTW was the only way for us to go.

Our wedding is already booked, and our wedding coordinator is a sweet lady named Cynthia, I love her so far! Our official date is May 8, 2010. We're having a mid-morning ceremony at the Disneyland Hotel Rose Court Garden, with a pre-reception to follow on the Dreams Lawn while our photos are being taken. After we're done with pictures, our reception will be held in the Sleeping Beauty Pavilion.

Ceremony site:





Reception site:


Our colors: Dark purple and teal.

Bridal Party:
Matron of Honor: Briana (Jason's sister)
Bridesmaid: Marylou (my sister-in-law)
Bridesmaid: Erin (Jason's sister)
Bridesmaid: Lindsay (my sister-in-law)
Bridesmaid: Heather (Jason's sister)
Flowergirls: Britney & Carly (Jason's nieces)

Bestman: Michael (my brother)
Groomsman: Adam (Jason's brother-in-law)
Groomsman: Ryan (Jason's brother-in-law)
Groomsman: Sean (my brother)
Groomsman: Josh (Jason's brother)
Ringbearers: Luke (my nephew) & Aidan (Jason's nephew)

My dress:












Forgive my goober smile in that one picture, and the blurriness in the other! I promise I will take more when I go back for the official fitting. The dress is by a designer named Kittychen. The veil I'm wearing is not the veil I will wear for the wedding either, however, the length will be the same. My veil is going to be custom made using the same tulle used on my dress. That material has sparkles in the fabric itself. It's so pretty!

Bridesmaid dresses:




It's the same dress, but in the different colors. Now, the dress is from David's Bridal, and they have this little "dress your bridal party" thingy I'm sure many of you are acquainted with. Here's a lineup of how the coloring will look.



Groomsmen vests/ties:




Floral:



We just booked our florist over the weekend, and this was a little sample she threw together for us. These are the type of flowers that will be used in my bridesmaid's bouquets. My bouquet will be cascading, and mainly white roses and lilies with touches of purple orchids and other flowers.

Our centerpieces are going to be different from this, but it'll give you the gist! I think I may have stole this picture from somebody else's PJ, so thanks to whoever if I did! Lol Anyhow! Our centerpieces will have stemmed floating teal dyed purple dendrobium bombay orchids. Hopefully with scattered petals of some sort around the vase.



Here's an example of what the dyed flowers will look a bit like:


And these will be at the bottom of the vase...



Unity Ceremony:

We decided a sand unity ceremony would be nice to have, and it would leave us with some neat looking keepsakes afterwards. <3

Hi Anjanette, that's a beautiful name. Is there a history behind it?

I'm Amy. I'm not planning to get married anytime soon, but I like reading the diaries. I'll be watching yours and Jason's story.

Aw, thanks Amy!

Well... my grandmother (my mom's mother) was born in France, and my mom wanted to give me a French name. My mom's name is Janet and when my parents were looking through a baby name book, they happened upon Anjanette. It was French and happened to have my mom's name in it too. Sooo, it was everything they wanted. That's the story. Not all that exciting, really. Hehe.

Thank you so much for reading!

You know, I was thinking the same exact thing whenever I looked on the boards! So I'll be happy if anything I share will be of use to somebody looking to plan a DL wedding. The venues are actually at the Disneyland Hotel. I'll have to see about scanning a map of the hotel so you can see where exactly. To have a wedding IN the Disneyland, I think the rates start at a minimum of $40,000 and it's very limited on when (in front of Sleeping Beauty castle) and where (after the park closes). We wanted a Disney wedding, but one within our means hehe.

Thank you much for the compliments! The people in the background are all his family, and my parents were on the other side taking pictures. Thanks again for reading!

Yay! Thank youuu! I'll keep you all posted! We're a couple weeks away from the year mark, and we've got our first big planning session coming up with our Disney wedding coordinator. So, hopefully I'll have lots of juicy details after that for sure!

And I promise I'll try to post as many photos are possible!

Lol, noway!! What are the odds?!

You know.. I was originally sold on a couple different Maggie Sottero dresses. I got there, tried them on and wasn't too impressed with them. I needed more sparkle, so the girl who was helping me got me into this one and I fell in love.

Anyway, that's too awesome. It's a small world after all...

Oh yeah! That tulle is sooo pretty! That really is too funny! But, you wound up with a gorgeous dress anyway! I remember, 'cause I just checked out your PJ the other day.

My dress was $1,900 after tax, but that's including cups sewn into it for me and the material for my veil. Mine's without a hoop too, but sheesh. I don't think it really needs it. It's poofy enough for my liking. Lol

Alrighty ladies! I'm looking for opinions, and since you all have excellent taste - I figure this is a good place to ask!

First off, I'm looking to add Nightmare Before Christmas elements to our wedding, without allowing the theme to take over. My DF and I have been discussing having a Jack and Sally wedding cake. My only thing is... I want it to include our colors and still look like a wedding cake. Knowing how creative the Disney bakers are, I'm not too worried. I guess my concern is, whether they can pull this off. Did any of you other Disney brides have somewhat custom cakes? Does anyone know much about it?

Once I meet up with our coordinator next month, I can ask her for myself but for know... I figure maybe one of you would know?

I found a cake that's just beautiful (and I even found where to get the figures they used for the caketopper), but I'm curious how they'd work in our colors instead of the yellow.

Here's the cake: http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/topsy-tu...2008-08-31.htm



Potential shoes!
Okee doke, my other thing is my search for the perfect shoes. I want to wear heels for the ceremony but I want ones that will not be too big. I'm 5'3" and my DF is 6'. I love our height difference and I still want to be somewhat short to him in our wedding photos. So I'm trying to limit myself to 2 inch heels. Haha.

So, here are the shoes I'm trying to decide between as of now:





What do you think? Shoe number one or number 2?

I'm switching into white Converse at the reception, so it's not necessarily a matter of comfort or anything. Just whatever is cuter.
