Faith,
Your love story is awesome and the proposal is so cute. It is insane just how alike I am to you and your DF is to mine. It is really weird lol. I agree that the new Disney Art princess dolls are weird, but the mugs are definitely one of the things that are actually pretty. Your ideas are really great. The lanterns on the chairs is really a cool idea and a great way to tie your two events together. I'm really excited to read more.

I love the bouquet you've picked, very pretty! I have no idea where the "aisle" at crescent terrace is either, but we're doing rose petals to line either side and Karen said the aisle is over 50' long. I love the lantern idea too, that is going to look really pretty. I can't wait to see how everything turns out! My aunt suggested shephard hooks down the walkway with pomanders and I think we're going to give that a try with maybe some pomanders hanging from chairs too. Darn all that concrete! lol

50' long! I better start working out!!

I love the idea of shepard hooks and pomanders-- that'd look gorgeous!

I don't like all the concrete either but I think we can spruce it up!

Today's subject: the dress hunt!!

I went to 4 bridal shops before I found "the one" and I had so much fun! I only took my mom with me to look as I knew that if I brought more people, I'd never been able to choose a dress with all the opinions that'd be floating around.

I made sure to drink plenty of water, bring snacks, and only make one appointment per day! I read horror stories about girls and their dress experiences and I was determined to not have a bad time!

Towards the end, all of the dresses kind of became one sparkly, white, fluffy blur.. but one dress really stood out in particular!!

Here are some of the dresses I tried on:

I loved this one on the hanger... not so much on me!! :


This was my favorite dress for awhile-- I loved the stripes!:


I flat out hated this one on! :


She became the new favorite:


This one was a little "too much":


I loved the sparkles on the bodice but thought the rest made me look like a mummy!:


Finally.. here she is!!! It's an Essence of Australia dress and I love it! It should be coming in any day now!







I just love how different my dress is. I love the layers, and that it's chiffon (I didn't want a heavy, satin dress in Florida!)

I plan on getting a tiara, but no veil. Any ideas on where I should start looking for a tiara?

I bought my shoes! They are Steve Madden and so sparkly!! I LOVE sparkles!:


And last but not least, Max plans on wearing a grey suit with a black tie and possibly a pair of black Converse shoes!


WHEW! That was a picture heavy post! Sorry about that!

In other news, Karen from Just Marry! emailed me that she is booking Rev. Tim Herring for our ceremony! I've heard great things about him!

I guess that's it for today! Thanks for reading along!

I love your dress! One word: Gorgeous!!

First Dress Fitting, my Headband, and Welcome Bags!!

Happy Tuesday, girls!

So, last weekend I got "the call" that my dress had finally made it to the shop. My mom and I cancelled our weekend plans and drove 2 1/2 hours to go try on the dress.

Not going to lie.. I was NERVOUS. I've been eating bad food recently and was worried the dress wasn't going to fit.

The wonderful owner of the shop helped me try on the dress and was super sweet, as usual!

... the dress fit! Thank goodness!! BUT, I'm not entirely happy with the way I look in it. I'm going to hit the pool tomorrow and try to get my butt back into shape!

I also asked Wendy, the shop owner, about adding a crinoline. She said my dress "wasn't made for a crinoline" so I didn't push it... but, my mom did. Wendy brought out a slip and I fell in love with the extra poof. It isn't too much different with the crinoline but I feel much princessier with it!

Here's the dress without the crinoline:


And, here it is with the crinoline-- I don't think the picture does the poof justice, but it's noticeable in person!:


Notice how much happier I look with the poof?

I also picked out my headband!! I tried on a tiara but I didn't look right, I tried a flower but wasn't a fan. This headband was perfect!

Here's a picture of it from the side:


And here I am making a funny face.. but, the real purpose of this picture is to show you the front of the headband:


My mom also tried on a dress and she really liked it! She would probably get the dress in purple as it looks great with her hair and eyes!:


I think she's a little nervous to wear a dress like this but I think she looks fantastic and don't want her in one of those frumpy Mother of the Bride dresses!

In other wedding news, while we were picking up my dress, we found a Disney Store outlet!! I noticed that they had these awesome reusable tote bags that are Christmas themed. Since our date is so close to the holidays, we thought these would be perfect for our Welcome Bags! So, we bought them! Sorry the picture is so giant!


I also added a 4 hour video package onto my contract! I'm very excited. Karen said she'd get in contact with their preferred vendors and let me know who she booked! No word yet but I'm excited to find out!

Finally, my Disney Bride shirt came! It's perfect! I will post a picture next time I update!

Next up: Our Menu!

Oohhh you look so pretty, Faith! I love your dress, and I definitely like the little bit of poof.

And what is it about wedding attire that makes us brides make funny faces?! I do it too!!!

Oh! You inspired me to make a reservation at the Garden Grove during our honeymoon! And I bought a restaurant.com coupon for $25 off for $2. Woo!!!

Thank you so much!!

And, I know!! I love seeing pictures of brides trying on their dresses as well just look so silly! I think we're too excited to realize that someone is taking a picture and we're actin' a fool!

Ooh! YAY! You'll love it! It's quiet, and the characters are very attentive!

I totally agree about the crinoline! I love the poof and I think the headband is a really nice touch, very tasteful and elegant. Your mom looks so cute, I think I like that dress better than the other one we found! She looks good in purple. Tell her to get it! lol excited about the shirt and bags, and to see the menu
