wow I have missed so much!!
I love the leaves instead of rose petals, especially for fall! They will also give an added pop of fall color!

The dresses are super pretty too, and I love the cartoon mock up!! I wish other sites had that! (My BM's dresses are Bari Jay and still need something for the guys). foiled!

Your site visit and trip sounds so fun with your girlfriends! I have Maxine as my planner and she's amazing so far! We met with her during our PS in October and she was really nice, down to earth, and a real go-getter ()
I have heard from a lot of brides on here that she is great! She is very quick to reply to anything I ask her (sometimes even at 10-11pm on her days off). I really enjoy working with her so far!!

The Save the dates look great! I really like the return address wraps also with the mickey, is that what they are or am I seeing that wrong? Fun!!

The dress you wore for your site visit is fab also, it looks great on you!!

I hope your bridesmaid is able to do both- how annoying We changed our date 3 times and our final date ended up being the day before one of my BM's PHD graduations Needless to say she's now an honorary BM instead, attending everything without official BM title and hoping she'll be able to make it for the actual wedding!

We are doing a sweetheart table at the reception for just the two of us. I figure we'll have a few minutes alone, and we've also been in a lot of weddings that have done it both ways. The head table gets tricky when your bridal party has dates, because you're splitting them up and puting their date by themselves potentially with people they dont know. We thought it will keep the peace and make our bridal party happier to be with their spouses, significant others etc, so we're seating them all together at another table. GL!

Thanks! If we were to do a head table with our wedding party, it would include their dates as well...so it's not an issue with including dates, but rather an issue with whether we want all of them sitting with us or not.

Especially with Thomas' best man being his uncle (significantly older than most of the wedding party) and one of his groomsman being his nephew (significantly younger than most of the wedding party). Will his uncle really want to hang with a bunch of youngins? Will all of the young adults really want to 'babysit' his nephew? Just some stuff we have thought about...but plenty of time to figure that stuff out.

I forgot one other thing that I saw and am thinking about doing. I know most people do either a sand ceremony or unity candle. I learned about something new called a unity cross - the couple puts it together during the ceremony. I absolutely LOVE the idea...have any of you heard of it before?

Here's a video profiling the idea -

I have seen that! I think it's really special and unique. Definitely a great alternative to a sand ceremony or unity candle.. and then you can display it in your house!

That is soooo interesting. That would be really cool to be able to display it in your home wherever you go!

I saw something else that was different and loved it, I think it was a time-turner.


EVERYTHING else looks amazing, I love the Save-the-dates!

I say magnets. The reason being....If it's a postcard, it will be have to have a magnet to hold it up on the fridge which covers up part of your pretty design and info!

wow, i love those save the dates!!! i think magnets are great because people will be constantly reminded of your date rather than just throwing a postcard in a draw somewhere..

I love your save the dates. they are super cute. I am different than everyone here because I think I may be the only one that does not want to do a save the date with our picture on it and I also don't like magnets.

So with that said I say postcards but I can see why everyone else thinks magnets are the way to go.

I am probably going to include a small picture of us from our engagement shots with the save the date and I might include a magnet...I don't know what I am going to do but I think I would like the postcard better.

just my opinion

Teresa

PS: I like the colors on yours

Lyndsay,

I just read your whole PJ. Everything looks great so far.

Your wedding is a week after my VR, so maybe we will run into each other next November. We are using UK Lochside for our DP too. I think it is one of the best sites.

Have you planned out your PS yet?

Can't wait to read more.

Thank you all! I am very pleased with how they turned out!! Dolly with Paper Perfection was really awesome to work with. She is actually traveling abroad right now and was still VERY prompt with her responses. I'm sure we'll be going through her for our invites as well.

I'm not entirely sure how to go about planning it out. My step-mom has kinda been the liaison the whole time...since she's in charge of the budget, she's been speaking with Disney and then relaying the messages back to me to make sure everything is okay. Some might think that's giving her too much control, but I trust her judgement and know if there is any detail she isn't sure of my opinion on, she will always ask.

I do know that we'll be having two planning sessions - the first one we have tentatively scheduled for either February 16th or 17th and we plan to do the other one in June. We're doing two that way my fiance can be involved in it as well. He's deployed until May. So we plan on getting the floral, decorative, etc. stuff done in February and leave the food stuff for June (guys like food)
