L & J's wedding May 7,2011 - Finally a little update

I have finally decided to do a PJ seeing how I have gotten a lot out of looking on these boards I thought I would say what I was doing.

First off a little background:
me (liza) 24 insurance agent
df (joe) 24 maintenance mechanic

We got engaged on June 9,2009 at the Red Sox game. That was also where we had our first date and how i always thought i would get engaged. My dad has had season tickets since i was little and i just love the red sox. It was wonderful

We are getting Married May 7, 2011 at the Wedding Pavilion @ 12 then having a cocktail hour at the Whitehall room & Patio and then the reception @ the St. Augustine Room.

We also have Misty Miotto booked (which i am so excited for)

I will upload some pictures of my dress and flowers, etc... when i get home from work

Welcome and congrats! My DF is from New England (even though we both live in Cali now) and is a huge red sox fan. I am trying to figure out ways to incorporate it into the wedding. My only thought so far is a grooms cake, if we can fit it into the budget.

Aw so exciting, we love the red sox. I bet he will be excited if you incorporate stuff.

Thank you

So I ordered my dress this summer and it is already in so here it is.




I am having 7 bridesmaids: my sister is my maid of honor, I have 2 sister in laws, a cousin and 3 good friends
Here are there dresses. We were going to have them choose the style but in the end they all pick the halter. It will be in the teal color.




(the dresses were really big so they look a little funny)

Df also has 7 groomsmen. His best friend is his best man, my 2 brothers and brother in law, his brother and 2 good friends
Here is what the guys with be wearing


Also my dad and his dad will be in those. We are having my dad marry us, since we are both catholic and are going to be blessed in the church after we thought it would be nice to have someone we know marry us. I am very close with my dad and i think he will be perfect

I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

So we went down to Fl in the beginning December for our PS. We just went for 4 days but we were able to go to mickeys very merry christmas (which i had never been to which was amazing) and df got to go golfing so he was happy. We have Michelle as our planning and so far she has been very nice and quick to answer any questions.

We also got our first BEO which was a little shocking to me. We had a budget and went totally over it. So we had to change a few things and now just waiting for our floral and a number of guest so we can get it down more. Right now we are budgeting for 100 people but hoping for 65-70. For the menu we are doing Burgers, hot dog, chips and salad at the welcome dinner (which i didn't put in my first post but that will be Friday night at the summerhouse). For the cocktail hour we will be having cheese and crackers and fruit with yogurt dip. Dinner will be salad, olive oil veggies, a potato bar (with Yukon mashed, sweet potatoes, risotto), breaded chicken,and peppercorn strip loin (which was amazing at the tasting). Then we are just doing the mad hatter cake.
Df doesn't like cake at all so i was thinking of doing a mickey ice cream for him. Has anyone done that or anything like that?

Then since we are having an early wedding and it will be over by 6 we are hoping to go the boardwalk bars. We were hoping to drink around the world at epcot but i cant justify making everyone pay for a ticket and then drinks for like 2 hours there.

Hi!

First off, congrats! My fiance Tim and I are getting married at 10 am on 5.7.2011 at the Wedding Pavilion so I guess I'm the slot before you! Our reception will be at the Napa Room. We are having a very small ceremony with only 40 guests. Very exciting to find 2 other people who are getting married that day!

YAY I can't wait to Misty I love looking at everyones pictures she does.


So I can't believe that my wedding is only 4 months away. Since we have been engaged for almost 2 years it seems so strange to only be 4 months away.

This weekend me and df went shopping and I wanted to find wedding shoes. And the first place I went we found them. I really wanted blue (for my something blue) and these are really comfy and I got a really great deal




We have also got our wedding rings a few weeks ago at the kay outlet. So here are our rings.


I didn't realize that most of the bands look funny with the 3 diamond engagement ring. So I ended but with a curved one but i really like it.


df didn't really care much about his before hand but then when we got there he ended up trying more on then me. He ended up with this one it has mother or pearl in the middle of it which makes it really cool looking.

In other news I got our invitations in!! I really had a hard time on these because i love loved a whole bunch of them but I just couldn't spend so much money on them when people were just going to throw them away. But I am really happy with the way they came out.


So I said in my last post that we got our first BEO and it was quite shocking we have since changed a few things and have gotten it where we were hoping it to be. We still haven't received our floral yet so as soon as i do i will post the whole BEO.

I love your dress!! So pretty and I love the flower detailing. I really like your bridesmaids dresses where did you get them from? I'm looking into letting the girls pick out their own dresses in all the same colors.

I will also be interested in hearing about your wedding ceremony experience, as DF is catholic but I am not. I know I must be catholic in order for the church to bless the marriage. But I really haven't had the time yet. I wasn't raised in a going to church all the time type family. I only went a few times with my grandmother and friends when I was in middle and high school.

Can't wait to read more about your planning! You are so close!

Thanks, I am glad someone thinks so. I was worried since they were so cheap that they won't look good.
