Hi Lovely Ladies!!
Happy New Year!! So excited for all the 2013 brides! Cannot wait to see photos and read about all of your big days! I apologize for the sporadic nature of my PJ/TR. I've been working 60 hour weeks at work lately, and I come home absolutely exhausted. I feel terrible for not keeping up with all of you on here regularly, but I appreciate your continued support. Eventually, I'm hoping things will relax a bit, and I can resume my regular posting/reading of your PJs.

I have a lot of hair, but it is pretty fine already and wouldn't want to wait for it to become healthy again after the extentions are taken out.....I just don't have that much patience. It is good to know that if I do decide to go with the clip-ins, I may need to look for a different style. Thanks for the information, very good to know!
I don't mean to scare anyone off with my experience. I loved having extensions for the wedding, and was definitely happy with the result for the wedding. I just wished I had done a bit more research prior to getting them (as my hair is pretty average now post-extensions), and considered other alternatives. I think it really depends on your hair type, but if you have somewhat fragile hair like I do, clip-ins may be a better option... I've been taking Biotin like crazy, so I'm hoping my hair will start to thicken up again soon.

I still go through all of my photos and I keep discovering "new" shots that I hadn't noticed before! I got back 1065 photos (I think) so it's a bit overwhelming! I still don't have all of my photos on Facebook! I only have pre-wedding and wedding ceremony/celebration... But I'm still missing the 5 hours of photography that happened after that! One day... one day! I'm still working on those dreaded Thank You's! All of the bridal shower ones are done, and I worked on some of the wedding ones, but I've still got a long way to go! It'll happen in time! This week I headed to JoAnn's (my kryptonite!) and bought about 15 5x7 frames (each for 50% off!!!) and I found a code for 40% off of prints ordered from Walgreens, so I had some family photos printed... I'm going to *try* to get them all sent out to family before Christmas, but it may be closer to New Year's! Maybe that will ease the sting of a tardy "Thank You" Starting a new job really sucks at first, but I'm getting the hang of things! Still learning new things every day, but I'm enjoying myself more now! So I know that you'll get there too- though your job seems a LOT more complex than mine I think my husband would make a good vet, so I keep trying to drop hints that he should try going to school for that! We're at that point where one or both of us need to go back to school ( I hate school) especially since Michael only has a month left at his spa job since Disney's buying out the company he works for. But anyways, things are going well over the Holidays! We bought and set up our first Christmas Tree (got lots of ornaments from the Christmas store @ Downtown Disney!!) and we just bought a pretty new 46" LCD TV and did some rearranging in our living room... exciting things! Sending you pixie dust for a MAGICAL first Christmas as a married couple!
Hi Jillian!! Congratulations fully fledged Concierge Cast Member!! Very proud of you! I know all the guests will adore you!
I'm super excited to have all my proofs! I've gone through them a couple of times, and it's so fabulous to relive the day. One of our friends made an amazing video of the day, and that's really cool to look at. She taped a lot of moments throughout the cruise as well as the wedding day, and is having one of her friends edit it into a DVD. As soon as that gets spliced together, I'll definitely share. When I was planning, it definitely helped to see DCL ceremonies on YouTube. It let me see the pacing for the day, and was integral in how we timed our music.
I too am still working on Thank You cards. I've stolen your magnet idea , so in additional to the cards, I'm going to include the group photo of everyone on magnets. Hope to get it all done this week--cross your fingers for me.
Glad to hear you and Michael had good holidays! New TV is always exciting! I've been in a movie kick lately, so we've been going to the theater almost every weekend. It's a fun date; the movie theater near us has comfy seats that recline a bit and offer dinner options, so we usually go for a matinee and make an afternoon of it. Just saw The Hobbit yesterday. Definitely recommend! Not quite LOTR standard, but impressive in its own right and entertaining.
Have you spent much time in the new Fantasyland yet?? I'm dying to visit! My 30th birthday is in August, so maybe I'll have to plan a trip down to WDW

My pleasure Yeah, the wavephones are brilliant, especially for a big group. I don't know how we would have organized meetups without them. A list will be a big help for your guests!

I hope our photographer can come up with some of that. Lol!!! Your Day 1 report sounds fun and busy. I have never been to the tea room at GF, so I loved those pictures! What a great idea to get away from the planning for a bit and relax.

Can't wait for the next installment!!
Thanks Courtney!! It was a super pleasant surprise! When I first started researching Disney and DCL weddings, The Disney Wedding Blog aka Magical Day Weddings was a staple. I cannot tell you how many times I've been through the other DCL brides images on that site, so it was very flattering to join them. I'm sure your photographer will do an amazing job, and I cannot wait to see your photos!!

The tea room is definitely a fun experience for those who want something girly and intimate. Usually I immerse myself in Disney craziness when in WDW, so it was nice to do something a bit more relaxed. Hope your plans are going well!

Thanks Jillian! You wrote the most incredible TR, so I'm not even attempting to follow in your shoes. Hopefully it's not too boring to read

Thanks Evi!! I was very flattered that our wedding was featured, but I'm more so happy for Jess. She is an incredible photographer and a huge Disney fan, and I hope this increases her exposure amongst DFTW brides.

Thanks Jodi!! I so appreciate the compliments. I have a couple patient files that I wasn't able to complete on Friday because we got slammed (had a couple of procedures and a kidney failure cat come in), so I've got to finish those today, but I'm hoping to work on Part 2 tonight or tomorrow morning.

Haha, Christie, I know the feeling. I'm also behind in everyone's PJs. It'll be nice when I get a chance to catch up because I know there will be tons of amazing things for me to swoon over Hopefully I'll get the next part out soon. It's going to be a synopsis of my day in Disney World and meeting the famous Jillian, and then to the DP!!!

I saw the feature on Magical Day Weddings and your photos are spectacular! Everything looks amazing!!!

Looking forward to reading more!
Thanks so much, Nicole!! It was a really great day for she and I. Definitely recommend the tea if you can fit it in. It would sorta fit with the vintage vibe of your wedding, although kinda wrong geographic area and time period. Haha, maybe it doesn't exactly fit, but still would be fun to do as an outing with a few ladies that you're close with.

Ginger, I LOVE being concierge! The Front Desk was alright, but people don't really WANT to check in, they HAVE to check in. I feel like it was more business than anything. And where I still do everything the Front Desk does, people usually come up to the concierge excited to PLAN their vacation. Talking about the parks and dining and tours and recreation! So much to do! I felt like I already knew SO much about Disney... until I became concierge! There is SO much I still need to learn!! One day at a time, I am definitely in a constant state of learning!

How exciting! When you get your video, I'd like to see it! (I'll probably cry, too! lol) I wish I could've been there! I wish I could be a fly on the wall of all of these lovely DIS weddings!!! I feel so weird on video, so I wasn't too keen on the idea of having a videographer... I don't really like to watch myself on tape or hear my voice the way everyone else hears it... I think someone on my husband's side has video of ours... It would probably be funny to watch Captain Henry tell Michael that it wasn't time to Kiss the Bride yet!

I'm glad you stole my magnet idea! I might be crazy, but I like the idea of being on my friends' & family's refrigerators! I just did two different photos of use with "Mr & Mrs Pariona Thank You" and alternated them through the cards. Over the holidays I also stumbled upon a 50% off frames sale, so I bought about 15-20 and printed out 5x7 photos to send to most of my guests... unfortunately after that (and Christmas) I kinda ran out of fundage... so I still haven't sent them out yet! OH! And I love dine-in theaters! Are they all as expensive as the AMC at Downtown Disney? Gosh, it's so expensive, but I LOVE it! Michael and I saw Les Miserables the day after Christmas with one of our friends at the dine-in side. Great movie! I haven't gotten to see the Hobbit, though... I'll be honest, I only saw the first two LOTR movies! But when I was little, I remember my brothers and I getting comfy in my parents' room and my mom read The Hobbit to us (not that I remember anything about it now!) but I should probably go see it!

Get this... I haven't seen the New Fantasyland at all! The last time I was there it was open only to those who had gotten wristbands for the preview and the closest I got was to the outer castle walls! BUT now that the marathon just finished, it's FINALLY gotten to be slow, so hopefully I'll have time to get to the parks ASAP! I have a scheduled "safari day" with 2 of my other new concierge cast members and we're just spending the day in resort clothes going from resort to resort and *hopefully* to New Fantasyland, too! I had the idea that we should go to Be Our Guest for lunch since we're ALWAYS getting questions about it! This day is all about "product knowledge". I'm so glad I work somewhere where I love the product! If you come down here in August, I definitely want to see you again! It'll be nice to chat when you're not so pre-wedding stressed!

Thanks for the compliment on my TR. I feel like mine was very long winded, though! I just wanted to be thorough both for those who read it, and also for when I go back and read it- maybe I'll remember more that way! I think yours will be just as good and as always, I'm super excited to read more! AND to see more pictures!

Aww, you called me famous! You've gone and made me blush! I don't know if I'm as famous as I am slightly obsessed and just post a lot!

No worries, you didn't scare me off really. I was very happy to know your experience. I've actually done quite a bit of research (youtube videos and whatnot) and, while I do take biotin everyday (my nails are growing like crazy!!), I do also have fairly fragile hair. As it is I have had to stop using heat and products most days of the week just to get it to grow. I think the clip-ins will be my best option. I do, absolutely, thank you for your honesty!

Hi ginger I absolutely fell in love with your PJ!! I myself am planning on doing a DCL wedding not for another two years though but I wanted to save far in advance!! I loved your TR and that you got your wedding published it seems so beautiful and I can't wait to book my wedding package, I also loved your engagement pictures! Congratulations on everything? I did have a question did you get a lot of response from your welcome bags?? and how much were the flasks to be custom made that’s something I was toying around with doing?
