I'm glad its finally 2010 does seem all that closer to we can say we're getting married this year.

I think we will fly out on the thursday then have the wedding on the tuesday, so yep we would be ou there at the same time then the wednesday i could spy on your wedding

I love your colour scheme idea, it was actually one that i was considering along with white and silver or maybe something a bit more turqouise and brighter than tiffany blue or white, silver & a bright pink
ooh i actually bought a folder from whsmiths for all my wedding bits to go in, and it has all those colours on it!! silver, hot pink, light pink and turquoise! it's got a blossom pattern to it. maybe you could use that for inspiration!? i tried to find a pic on their website but they only have the large folder on there.. so you'd be better off popping into their store i reckon.. but as soon as you said all those colours my folder came straight to my mind!!

Your plans sound really great, and although it's a long time away, it will give you time to plan everything and save, and I'm sure it will go by fast. I really like the colors you are considering. My sister used Pool from David's Bridal for her wedding, and it looks like the color you are considering is very similar. I loved the color for her wedding, and was so glad she chose a nice color for the BM dresses! I would actually consider using that color if she didn't use something so similar. I can't wait to here more about your plans! Congats on the engagement, house, and wedding plans!
awww thankyou for reading!! yes i know for a fact that it definately won't be our last trip!!! i absolutely can't wait.. but we definately need the time to save up! aww that's good that you liked your sisters choice of colour for the BM dresses! i'm not 100% sure if i'm having bridesmaids yet.. but if i do i know they'll be pleased with my choice!! my nephew is going to be paige boy and ring bearer.. he'll be 7 by that time so i hope the colour isn't too girly for his image!! thanks again for reading!

Congrats on getting married!! Sounds like you have a lot of ideas and that's great. Love the color scheme and the dresses. I think the first would be stunning on you. You two make such a cute couple!! Yay for a disney wedding. Can't wait to read more.

yeah i think you're right about the calla lilies! i do love white flowers and at least there would be a small amount of tiffany blue on the stems!

dessert party??

i am currently having a small dilemma!! i have changed my mind about changing out of my dress and going to epcot for a casual dinner. after all i will be paying a lot for the dress, so i want to wear it all day and get the vip treatment, even if we are having a reception back home.. i guess this is my greedy side starting to show!! we think we would now like to have..

misty for 8 hours starting at 1.30pm
wedding at the pavilion at 2.30
cake cutting and champagne celebration at 4pm till 5pm
photo's at the GF till 5.45
travel to the boardwalk for photo's

we're not sure what to do here - perhaps tea at the garden view tea room? or a non private meal somewhere? not sure...

8pm - walk from the Boardwalk to the International Gateway at Epcot for an Illuminations DP at the UK Lower (i have read it is possible to just meet an escort here instead of getting the bus, therefore saving lots of money!! ) i also read that savoury snacks are available at this location, will this put the price up per person???

ok.. so after a LOT of surfing ..... here is our new plan. we think we are opting for a wishes wedding, as after we've added all the enhancements we want to the escape package such as a reception dinner and dessert party (yes we have now decided we would like a reception dinner.... i am SO indecisive haha!!) we think overall it might be less expensive to do wishes.. well according to the DFTW calculator anyway! and there are a few things in the escape package that we wouldn't use such as the photography which is a bit of a waste really. as people would be paying a lot to come out and see us get married, we want them (and us) to have the whole wedding experience! so here is what we're now thinking of doing for the time being..

Ceremony @ Wedding Pavilion – 2.30pm
Cocktail Hour @ Grand Floridian – 3.30pm
Reception & Cake Cutting @ the Attic (BW) – 4.30pm
Epcot Dessert Party @ UK Lower – 8.30pm

i'm sure i'll change my mind a few more times in the next year or so.. but it's something to keep my mind occupied anyhow

We did exactly what you guys decided to do, lol. Eventually the costs were just non-prohibitive of an Escape wedding...here are my comments for you, take them for what you will

Ceremony @ Wedding Pavilion – 2.30pm If you are going to have a 2:30 ceremony I would say depending on where you want to stay, you might want to have Misty start earlier. If you are going to do bridal party portraits at the GF your WP will schedule you to be there about an hour ealier.
Cocktail Hour @ Grand Floridian – 3.30pm This is a good idea, but kinda short on time. Your ceremony will be done at 3 though so you could have the cocktail hour from 3-4 and then transport your guests at 4
Reception & Cake Cutting @ the Attic (BW) – 4.30pm
Epcot Dessert Party @ UK Lower – 8.30pm I think you will actually be making your way over to EPCOT a bit earlier than this. That's another reason to bump up your time with Misty if you have a full 8 hours since she can't come to EPCOT with you.

I love your plans though. We also chose the Wedding Pavilion and I'm so excited to use it!

oh no i didn't realise misty can't come to epcot with us!! in that case i think i'll take your advice and have her start earlier and maybe even reduce her hours... oh bummer that's put another spanner in the works!! i also didnt realise the ceremony was so short!!! i knew i read somewhere that you get longer at the pavilion, i just didn't realise that it was to be used before the ceremony!! my goodness i think i definately need to do more research! my mind is totally frazzled thanks for all the useful info

i've also just read that to have a wishes wedding, you need to spend a minimum of $12,000.. is this true?? is there no way we could spend less but still have a wishes wedding?? oh i'm so confused.. i feel brand new to all this now!! i can't work out if it would be cheaper to have the escape package with the reception and DP add ons.. or to just go for wishes.. i can't imagine us ever spending enough to meet the $12,000 minimum for wishes if this is required.. ah well.. back to the drawing board i go!!!!

Hiya!

Fellow UK bride here! And I'm the same age as you!

I love the Tiffany blue colours- As far as I know, you can have whatever floral you like, you can send the florist inspirational pics and they will create it for you.

Yay for the wishes wedding, we are having a lot of extras that add up to over the Wishes minimum so it just made sense for us to have the Wishes over the Escape. Yes you have to meet $12,000 before tax & service charges- there is no way you can get past spending this- its a set thing for all Wishes weddings- this 12k can be met through food, drink, locations, cake, entertainment ect.

We are having a similar timeline for the day, suggested by our planner as follows;

2:30pm Ceremony at Sea Breeze Point
3:30pm Pre Reception for guests at the Attic
4:30pm Reception - M&M, Dans to appear
8pm - Leave for Epcot UK LochSide for Dessert Party
8:30pm- 9:30pm Illuminations Dessert Party.
After this, as we will be staying at Boardwalk, we will most likely chill out at the Belle Vue.

My photographer is Randy Chapman and we are having him for 7 hours, so he will take a few getting ready shots, then we will have him right up until we leave for the dessert party. We *might* hire a Disney photographer for the hour to take shots at Epcot.

If you need any help, just PM me!

1) Photographers that don't work for Disney can't come to in park events. So you can have her for the wedding pavilion, cocktails and reception.

2) The minimum for Wishes wedding is $12,000 for weekday weddings and $15,000 for weekend weddings. There is no getting around that. And that's $12,000 just for expenses with Disney, MIsty wouldn't county.

It seems like a lot but when we priced it out, it was coming close to $10,000 for the escape wedding we wanted so it made sense to go to a Wishes wedding...but it's not right for everyone.

I really like the colours you've chosen and I love the bridesmaid dress you have in the picture but I'm a little biased as that is the dress my sister is wearing to my escape wedding, only in red.

I really like the plans and time lines that you switched to... I think it all sounds great. I would go for the wishes wedding if you can come up with the money. I was thinking I wasn't going to meet the $12,000 minimum when I started planning, and now I am thinking I'm going to be way over. One thing you can consider doing is using Disney for photography instead of Misty... even though I also love Misty's work. I suggest this because photography is expensive and if you are worried about meeting the minimum... this would bring you much closer. Also then you could have photography for the DP. Good luck with deciding which one to pick! Also, where are you thinking of doing the cocktail hour? We are going to use the GF marina!

wow you're wedding sounds amazing!! i just love the look of the attic, but what is M&M's.. i guess i'm still pretty new at this and we have now changed our minds about the location and are going with SBP! the only thing is with wishes is that minimum of $12,000, which even though i know we could easily meet if we had the money.. i just don't think our pockets will stretch that much... but if somehow we come up with the money, we will definately be switching to wishes without a second thought!! thanks for all your help! i'll be having a nosie at your PJ for inspiration!

aww that's such a shame about outside photographers! i have seen shots at peoples dessert parties that misty has taken, she even took them round epcot for some sneaky shots round the world! i guess that's why they stopped it.. ah well! and i think we're going to have to go with the escape package... as like i said above i don't think our pockets will stretch that far, as i have my heart set on getting outside photography so with that and the other outside vendors on top, it will be too expensive for us

that is a really good idea using disney to meet the minimum! the only thing i'm worried about is that i have seen mixed reviews about their work. it really depends on which photographer you get i suppose, and even though i could request for someone in particular (amy's shots i have seen are amazing!!) there is no guarantee that we would get her, so i kinda have my heart set on outside photography as that is my main priority. i think we're going to go with escape and try and use the disney photography that comes within the package for the dessert party instead (i'm hoping this can be done..) and as we're not going with wishes we dont think we can afford a cocktail hour either.. but we were thinking somewhere at the GF too! thanks for all your help and suggestions!!

Talking the new plan!!!

well here it is.. what i have been obsessiong about for the past 2 weeks!!

Misty Miotto to start (6hrs) - 1.30pm
Escape Ceremony @ SBP - 2.30
Cake & Champagne Celebration - 3.00pm
Photo's round the Boardwalk - 4.00pm
Reception dinner somewhere at the Boardwalk (where? undecided.. i LOVE the attic but i've read on mouseweddings.com that it has a minimum of $4500 if it ends after 5.30pm.. a bit steep! so we're on the lookout for something with a min under $2000 - suggestions welcome!! )
Misty Miotto's time runs out - 7.30pm
Walk to the International Gateway for the DP - 7.45pm (UK Lower / Morocco if we have less than 20 guests)
Dessert Party Starts - 8.30pm (we're hoping that as we won't be using the Disney Photography for the ceremony we could use it for the DP instead at no extra cost )
9.00pm - Fireworks!!
9.30pm - Back to room at the Boardwalk Inn


well that's it.. partly inspired by PrincessShea's beautiful wedding! ok.. now i need to find something else to obsess about!!

thanks for all the help everyone
