Kind of amazing to meet someone and know they are the right person after such a short amount of time. Good luck with the rest of your planning.
It is pretty awesome to be with someone that loves disney as much as I do. It is an interesting thing to have a connection on but I can say that the way we met and the way this has all gone has been a dream come true and I am so happy. He is truly my best friend.

Brainstorming for Floral and Centerpieces

The following are images of things I am brainstorming. My colors are changing over to peacock purple, blue and green. I want to use peacock feathers and their colors to decorate for the wedding and incorporate them into star wars and vinylmation.

You will notice from my save the dates I am moving more towards peacock coloring for the wedding. Let me know what you think of the following images.

Teresa



This is what I think I want to do for my bouquet and boutenierres.



for bridesmaids I am thinking one lily and a peacock feather. Something very simple




I like the bows tied to the side for the chairs


only picture i could find I want to do centerpieces that are tall vases with blue glowing water to signify blue lightsabers


I love the square 3 tier cake




I am trying to find a way to jazz up the centerpieces and include peacock feathers



I like the earrings in this picture and the chair decor with the feathers in a cone type thing.

thanks Faith! I am excited to be using this color scheme my great grandma loved peacocks plus it allows to decorate with less flowers thus lowering the cost. I might be able to find faux peacock feathers at garden ridge, michaels or hobby lobby....

Love your brainstorming, peacock feathers are beautiful!

The cones on the chairs are really different but a great idea and love the blue centrepieces to symbolise a light saber

We are havign deep purple and blue theme so kind of similar

Reception Venue Change

The venue is changing for the reception...and can you guess why? I bet you can many DISbrides have had issues with DPS (disney photography) and then there are those that have not. Well in our case for consistency purposes we have decided we want Randy Chapman to do all of our photography. He is going to be doing our engagement session when we go to Disney in December. After looking at his prices and the amount of coverage I have decided I would rather have him than use DPS just to do a reception in the park at the backstage prop shop.

My thinking on this goes like this:
  • most important aspect of photography is digital images
  • i want to have a realtionship with the person already
  • i like artsy photography and creative pictures
  • i want full day coverage
  • i can do a lot with decorating to make the place my own

With all of that in mind I am ok with changing the reception venue from the backstage prop shop. Facts are doing it there would be super cool but we then have to pay for transportation to the venue and other things that just make it more complicated. Now I am sure that it would not be that complicated but I can also take the money I would have been using for DPS (which would have counted towards the wishes minimum) and use it towards doing some bad *** decorations. This also means that I can have disney characters...I am hoping to get donald duck and stitch!

So here is the list of sites that we are going to go see when we go in December.

Atlantic Dance Hall
We like this because of the uniqueness of the place and the fact that our peacock color scheme will look really awesome with the art deco design.





Nutcracker Ballroom (Contemporary Resort)
We love the style of the contemporary resort and finding out that this venue is available to us despite what the disney website said was very exciting!





We are also going to go look at the ballrooms at the boardwalk but I think these are our last choice because of the color schemes in the room and what we are doing as wedding colors.

So I can not wait for our site visit, our LOA signing and making things official!

more in another post of what plans I have made for our december trip and other wedding type things...

Well I can't say you're going wrong sticking with Randy for everything. He took great pics at our wedding. And you're right, his prices are the best.

I love the way ADH looks all decorated up for weddings. Especially if you're going to have the extra money now to put towards more decor. Plus you're colors will look really snazzy in there!!!

Good luck finding somewhere you love.

I'm bummed you're missing out on using the prop shop but I totally understand your reasoning and I would've done the same thing. I wish Disney would just let you use outside photographers! But your plans look good - I love the Atlantic Dance Hall! I think that would work really well with your theme.
