the invites look great! I really like the colors too and the Disney graphics in the background on the inserts.

Thank you, we worked with him on them. I found the WDW road maps online and sent the PDF to him, he did the rest!

Invites are in the mail...

I am walking out the door right now and to the mailbox to mail my invites out!

And we paid our minimum expenditure! We'll be getting a lot of points on the credit card. I was going to pay it in cash but figured I might as well get some points for it right? My mom and I are going to LA in August so I can use points to book our hotels! Yay!

That is awesome you got the invites out, as well as paid off the min! That is amazing you did that so far ahead! Now, hopefully you get all your RSVP's back!

Your invites are adorable! I'd totally do something similar if DF said to keep the Disney aspect to a minimum. (So no Mickey at the reception lol.)

Can't wait to read more! I live in South Florida myself (Sunrise) so we are neighbors, lol.

The minimum expenditure is due 90 days out then the actual balance is due 30 days out, so I knew we had to pay up I just didn't realize how soon! lol!

Thank you, we really wanted something Disney-ish but nothing too overtly Disney/Mickey. The invites and save the dates we're really happy with!

Yay for sending out your invites! I totally agree on using the cc to pay for the minimum. It gives you an extra month to have to really pay it and you get the points so it's a win-win situation. I love using points for things, our wedding flight is using points and it's great to get things for "free".

Exactly! Between wedding stuff and trips to WDW in the last year we've earned a lot of points. We like to pay most things in cash but I'd rather earn points so I charge our utilities and cell phones to earn points and just pay the card off as soon as i get the bills. It's a great way to earn free money on things you normally pay off every month!

This is my first post on your PJ..I love the details. My DH is a paramedic too...I am a dispatcher-so our relationship began with me telling him where to go...LOL.
I love the color choices and ring! Can't wait to see it all come together!

Planning session in 9 days!

So I have been making a list of things to discuss in my planning session. It looks much nicer in my Word document, lol.
  • Linens - use whats included, no upgrading & chair covers with alternating aquamarine and black sashes
  • Food (we're having a tasting)
    Cocktail hour - fajita station
    Entrees - parmesean crusted chicken & a carved to order sirlion
    Side dishes - pasta action station & mashed potatoes with a toppings bar
    Desserts - mickey premium bars and Wedding cake
  • Floral
    bouquet - fuchsia gerber daisies
    bouts - white gerber daisy or a white mum... not sure yet
    mom's coursages - daisies or I may do roses bc it seems like such a mom flower, lol.
    altar arrangments will be transferred to reception and used as centerpieces - will be made of white/ivory hydrangeas with a few aquamarine daisies throughout. They will be in small short square vases and have a black ribbon tied in a bow around them.
    Sweetheart table - same as above
    cake table - minimal stuff, maybe a few loose white and aquamarine daisies thrown on it.
  • Paper - letting disney do the table numbers and place cards. No frills here.
  • Favors - we are providing chocolate mickey and minnie lollipops that my mom is making and there will of course be the organza bags of almonds but they will be placed at the entrance on the place card table in a basket so people can grab their own.
  • Entertainment - DJ and of course Mickey and I'm hoping my budget allows for me to surprise Danny with Stitch because he LOVES him.

I think I covered everything... but please feel free to add things so I can add it to my list!

Your food tastings are making me drool! I think if I ever saw a fajita bar at a wedding, I would immediately claim it the best ever!

Your decor sounds awesome. I can't wait to see your pics from your PS!
