Hi Lauren

I just started reading you PJ and I'm so excited for you. My colour scheme is orange too (well orange lime and turquoise!) and not only that but i am also having a go at the button bouquet. I've decided to add some sparkly brooches into mine as when I started putting it together I got worried that it looked a little childish. I'd love to hear how you get on with yours.

Your gown is gorgeous and I love the choice of bridesmaid dress, can't wait to hear more of your plans. I'm getting married on 5th October next year so we are very close together.

2. You can make candy bar wrappers in advance and then buy candy bars and double sided tape at Walmart when you get to the states, attach the wrappers to the candy bar and that is thing two for your welcome bag.

3. Make a welcome letter to insert in the welcome bag.

4. Make a door hanger and insert it in the welcome bag.

5. Make a gift tag for the bag.

Since all of these are just paper...they wouldn't take up much space in your luggage and it is really all you would need. All you would have to do (other than get the water, candy bars and double sided tape...look in the office supply section at Walmart and buy the scotch brand with a yellow cover) is assemble the candy bars and welcome bags and that should take 30 minutes.

You can find some examples on this thread in post #12 to give you an idea of what a water bottle tag and candy bar wrapper look like:

Here is an example of a door hanger that I made:
Thanks Dolly I think i might have to do this I was trying to just find a few little toiletry items to go with the welcome packs I just got a bag from Vista Print today but I am not very happy with it so I am trying to find some cheap calico tote bags that i can put some iron on transfers on...
If anyone knows anywhere that I can buy the minimum from and they are not 10 dollars each that would be great!!

We go home on the 21st October. What a shame as I could have stalked your wedding!!

Sorry I can't help with the room block question but hopefully someone will come along with some advise.

Yes they can all be linked in, you just need to email the confirmation numbers to your planner.

Our date is November 13, 2011. We will be at the Wedding Pavillion and then the Grand Floridian (at the Whitehall Room and Patio, if our guest list is small enough) if not we will be in the ballroom. Im praying that some convention doesnt swoop in and steal our date and place. I reeeeaaaallly need to start a PJ!

I'm pretty sure it's any disney owned property. They changed it for a little while that it had to be part of your room block, but now I think it's changed back.

By the way, I love your new title!

AHHH More Problems!!
I emailed Joe to let him know which hotels we want our room blocks.
But now I have to decide How many per night. I don't know I don't even know who is coming yet!!!
AHH maybe I will just say 4 rooms per night for the first 2 weeks then 1 room per night for the next 5 i don't know its all too hard.

Thanks Bec It reminded me of all the times we have been to the states and the conversation goes
"where you from"
Me "Australia"
Them: "Sydoney"
Me: "No Tasmania"
Them: ""
Me "You know the little island at the bottom of australia??""
Them" Oh yes"
lol

I cant tell you how many times I have had that Conversation but it will never beat the look Jason got when he walked into the billabong store at the Universal Hollywood City Walk.
Store Clerk " Can I help you""
And Jason Replys " Nah Im just having a Squiz"
The bloke looked at us like we were Crazy and all I could say was really quickly hes just having a look lol
