We're also having a 10am brunch wedding, and having some of the same food! :D
Thank you! Our photographer is Randy Chapman.

I really like this...but in my wedding colors...

...and how ironic...the example is made with our wedding date!

I guess I'm a little confused about how these planning journals work...I've been lurking in many other planning journals and seeing how so many details come together...despite their weddings being over a year away...but I thought we couldn't officially plan a lot of the details until 6 months out, right? Where do you guys find all your details??

I just think my planning journal so far is pretty boring...help!!

I showed it to my step-mom...I guess she had decided against doing paper save the dates...we're just going to do virtual ones. Kinda disappointed but it cuts down on budget which can be used for something else in the budget!

Planning for our site visit!

I've kinda been MIA from my planning journal. I really haven't been planning much...the main thing we have been trying to get together is addresses for everyone we are inviting. I'm actually still waiting on address for two people that my fiance's family added to his list (late)...I've been waiting for quite a while. Quite frankly, if you add people to the list, I'd hope you had an address for them already so as not to prolong things...but whatev.

This weekend will be an exciting one though...with MANY pictures to be taken. I travel down to Disney with my parents and best friend (maid of honor and stand-in groom [fiance is deployed]) for our site visit. I took the day off on Friday so I can drive down to Orlando and pick up Shannon (another bridesmaid) who is coming down for the weekend and then my best friend flies into Jacksonville Friday night. Saturday we'll all be going Bridemaid dress shopping...then Sunday we head back down to Orlando for the planning session on Monday.

Pics will come soon after!

As for details I just sort of post my thoughts and my thought process, I also put up what I am brainstorming.

Ok just read your PJ

1. how did you do the Avatar wedding people?

2. I like the broach bouquet idea

3. we are doing almost the same thing, well 10 am ceremony and then brunch at the atlantic dance hall...well that is if I dont change things. Only I am currently sea breeze point.

Hooray we can plan together!

Oh randy will be doing my e-pics this december too!

so many similarities

I did the avatars on David's Bridal's website. They have a tool on there they call 'dress your wedding' - http://www.davidsbridal.com/browse/dress-your-wedding
Two of my bridesmaids are coming to visit this weekend so they'll be trying on the dresses in the pics (among others if we find more we like).


2. I like the broach bouquet idea

Thanks! I'm still not completely set on it - I'm going to look at the floral options Disney offers to compare. I know doing the brooch bouquets could cut down on costs and its unique...but I like flowers too! I really like the idea of having feathers as part of the brooch bouquets to add a little softness. Another benefit of the brooch bouquets - they can be part of the bridesmaid gifts!

3. we are doing almost the same thing, well 10 am ceremony and then brunch at the Atlantic dance hall...well that is if I dont change things. Only I am currently sea breeze point.

I forgot to mention the time of the ceremony when we asked our wedding party to be apart of our big day...oops! Some were a little shocked at how early it was until I told them how the price is different from weddings done later...so they get it.

I really love Atlantic Dance Hall...I think it will make and AWESOME reception space.


Hooray we can plan together!

I love this site and seeing everyone's plans. I feel a little out of the loop because my step-mom is the main planner. Yes, it is my day, but she's the one paying for it so she's the one mostly in contact with our planner. She always runs decisions by us though before making anything official.

Oh randy will be doing my e-pics this december too!

Randy did a great job! He's doing the photography for our wedding as well. Where are you having your engagements done?

so many similarities
