Joining in here! Love that he gave up his motorcycle for you. You have such a cute story. The Mickey Rice Krispie Treats were a great idea too.
Can't wait to read more.

Thanks! They were a little tricky and we needed to work fast...having two sets of hands really helped here. I make Mickey pancakes and eggs for my nieces. I actually used the Mickey egg mold for the treats. Keep the mold and your hands really buttered up! Give them a try...they were delicious!

Call Me Coral 8.8.11 {Save The Date}

Sorry for the delay in updates ladies...I needed to get my pictures off my old computer-Thankfully I am back-up and running!

As promised I am sharing our save the dates with you all...

But before I get into that I wanted to say that 7 days after Rich and I were engaged I contacted DFTW...As I mentioned before I work for a wedding planner in Philadelphia {The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants}, the owners name is Mark Kingsdorf and he is PHENOMENAL! Awhile back he attended an open house at DFTW and met their Senior Wedding Consultant, Pam Pearce...as soon as he heard I was engaged and would be planning a Disney wedding he told me to contact her. Of course I called Pam the very next day! Pam was not in the office when I called so I left a message, not long after I hung up the phone she returned my call We chatted about my engagement and my ideas for our wedding, it was a great conversation and I knew that I would LOVE working with her from that point on! Later that day Pam sent me a follow up e-mail with a ton of information that she promised to send me, she is absolutely wonderful {I'm a bit sad that I won't have her through the whole process...but I am excited to find out who my planner will be}! Pam and I have been in contact via e-mail ever since and I can't wait for our planning session this August to meet her {And hopefully my planner too!!!}

Now onto the STD's {which is odd to type, however it takes too much effort to type Save The Dates...over and over again }

Since we are doing a destination wedding I knew that our STD's had to be fun and "destination-y"...I search the internet and wedding magazines for inspiration. I saw a lot of cute ideas {ie: boarding passes} but I wanted something that our guests could actually use when traveling to our wedding...and that is how we decided on...LUGGAGE TAGES

Once again working for a wedding planner has yet another benefit...I work with an AMAZING graphic designer, Christina, and thankfully she offered to help us out and design anything we needed!!!

I found some great 100% recycled envelopes on envelopemall.com and luggage tags with plastic straps on another website-I placed the orders and waited for the items to arrive


Once I received these I went to work on measuring and working with Christina {The Graphic Designer} to create our logo for the tags...as she was working on those I took inspiration from Martha Stewart and made labels for the envelopes...which matched our King/Queen of Hearts stamps perfectly and I didn't even plan it


I always loved the idea of envelope liners and knew I needed to have one...so I made these

notice anything?!

I then wrote a letter to include in our STD package

because I know everyone might not be interested in coming to a Disney Wedding {However something might be wrong with them }

Next was the STD card that included an informal RSVP


Christina sent me the AMAZING logo that I just LOVED and bam

our luggage tags were born!!!


I placed everything in the the labeled and lined envelopes...We loved them, and hope our guests do too!

Our little beauties were ready for their send-off...so they buckled up for safety


Our guests have received them and started replying...we are at close to 50 yes' and only under 10 no's...they have until next Saturday to reply

Thanks pixiegirl!!! It was tough thinking of something that would be useful...now only if my guests use them on their luggage for our wedding

Call Me Coral 8.8.11 {The Dresses...Bridesmaids and Flower Girls}

Ladies-We found the dress-es!!!

I have been searching high and low for a dress for my girls to wear, or dresses. I have looked at J.Crew, Vera Wang...and a BUNCH more...there were so many that I really liked and thought "there it is." But when I went to the bridal shop to pick up my bridesmaid dress for my cousin's wedding I saw this dress in the window and I fell in love with the fabric! Fabric I know...however it was this light tissue taffeta that had this beautiful iridescence-y look {which sounds odd}. However the dress was short and strapless...I had always imagined that my girls would be in long dresses that would not be strapless! So I went to see what other dresses this designer, Bill Levkoff, had that were long and not strapless...much to my surprise I fell in LOVE with a short strapless little dress-with POCKETS {which I didn't notice at first}!

The store's sample of this dress was "watermelon" and not "terracotta" so this is the color sample


I sent all my ladies a link to the Bill Levkoff site and asked them all their opinion...and much to my surprise everyone liked the dress as much as me! So we made an appointment to go to the bridal shop to try it on. Luckily we were all able to go this past Saturday and everyone was able to meet each other for the first time

Everyone was able to try on the dress...but here is my one cousin modeling it for you!

There are so many things that I love about this dress...asymmetrical, pleats, pockets...of the adorable bow in the back the won't come untied!!!

Thankfully I was also able to find another dress that I loved just as much...but for the flower girls! My future nieces {Olivia and Paige} were more then happy to try this one on...they would have loved to stay in the dresses all day {they didn't want to take them off when it was time to leave}!

Olivia {the oldest} gave it her seal of approval..."Aunt Kristin this is the perfect spin-y dress!"

Since the flower girl dresses are by "Us Angels" they do not have a coordinating or matching color...so I am purchasing extra fabric from Bill Levkoff and making each girl a sash. I am also going to make pocket squares for the groomsmen, a tie for a ring bearer {Mason} and our ring pillow that Mason will carry down the isle.

Hope you ladies like them as much as we do!

I love the dresses. I could see wearing something like what your cousin is wearing even outside of weddings. Your niece to be is adorable.
