We officially have 31 days till our wedding!!! And only 30 days till we leave for Disney!

Yesterday my mom took off a half day to spend some time with me and get things done for the wedding. We went to start her alterations for her dress. Here is a picture of my mommy in her dress...



I think she looks so beautiful! Her alterations will be done in 2 weeks. And then they will press her dress when we get closer to the wedding. It has lots of wrinkles.

We also went to lunch yesterday with Jeff, we went to go vote, went to get our eyebrows done... I told Jeff I was gonna go to get my eyebrows done about 3 days before the weddding and he then made me worry that if they mess them up what would I do, so I went yesterday and I will just keep up with them as they start to grow in here and there, and my mom also did my haircolor... I used to be a stylist and have taught her how to cut & color my hair, we will do it again like 2 days before we leave.

Today, I worked on separating our crystals per table and per heart votive. And I also worked on getting some of our tips in order and in envelopes. We had a yard sale last weekend and make $224 so that helped with that!

We are also going this Saturday for our Annual Pass preview of the new Fantasy Land!!! Im very excited to go to that. We did the Ariel version of the preview and I have to admit Im a little excited to meet Ariel in her tail! Im going to bring her a dinglehopper

OMG its getting soooooooooooooo close!

26 Days to go!

This past Saturday we went to Disney for the Fantasyland Preview for annual passholders... We had to re-new our passes as of Novemeber 11th so we decided to acctivate our wedding vouchers. Of course the cast member at the ticket counter wanted to give us happily ever after pins, so I worte on them "in 28 days!".

Let me just say, I thought the new area of fantasyland was AMAZING! Since Ariel is my favorite Disney princess I LOVED it. There have been alot of mixed reviews with The Little Mermaid ride... While its not super exciting, I thought it was neat. The line to wait in for it is really well done. There are areas to play with a little crab and that seemed neat but the wait was only a few minutes so we didnt really get to play along much. It is going to be a hot line in the middle of summer. We then we to go check out BOG and see if they were open for lunch service, which they were, and we only had like a 10 minute wait to sit. The inside of BOG is simply stunning. We chose to eat in the ballroom, but checked out the rose gallery room, and the west wing... I didnt really care for the rose gallery room, but the other two are really neat. We both ordered the turkey carved sandwiches, and they were either served with fries or green beans, and the sandwich was served warm and was very yummy. We also got a triple chocolate cupcake to share and that was very rich and so YUMMY! Then we headed over to meet Ariel in her fins!!! I was super excited about this, and since when we exchanged our wedding vouchers they gave us happily ever after pins, and we wrote in "in 28 days!", Ariel was asking all about the wedding, if I found my prince, and wanted to see my ring. She then asked since our wedding is going to be at the wedding pavilion at Disney since she could swim to it, could she come! Of course I said YES! Boy, they dont get out of character. Then we were going to go through the Belle thing, but we decided against it since I wasnt all that excited about it and the wait was 40 mins. We did go to Gastons Tavern and we had a Lefou's Brew.... VERY YUMMY, if you like apple sauce or apple juice you will like it. I think it would be very yummy in summer time since its frozen. Then we headed out to enjoy the rest of the park. I have picutres of the whole thing but havent dowloaded them yet... check badk in a few days!

Yesterday I worked on some wedding stuff. I finished our welcome bags now that we have an exact number of guests. We put lanyards with 10 pins on them for the kids that will be coming over to Disney (3 coming to the wedding and 2 not coming to the wedding but coming to Disney and being babysat during the wedding). I wrote up a card to put in their bags with info about pin trading. I also tied our ribbons on our Mickey Ears (were using them as place cards since we got our guests names embroydered on them), I have a burgundy ribbon for filet and chicken, and a silver ribbon for filet and fish. I thought they would look weird but they turned out okay, now we just have to make an annoucement for guests to keep those ribbons visable since that tells the servers what meal they are getting. I separated our crystals into a container for each table and mixed the sizes up... wow each table is getting lots of crystals! I think it will be so PRETTY!

I think thats all the updating i have right now. My mom and dad are coming over for dinner one night this week and my dad is helping Jeff with projects we ahve around here, and my mom is helping me finish the heart votives I have for the table. I will post a final picture of them whne we finish them.

GETTING SUPER CLOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

20 Days To Go!!!!!!!!!!

Im sorry I havent done an update in a few days... We have been so busy! Last year we did our first Thanksgiving at our house, and we decided that we would do it again this year... What was I thinking! LOL Im happy to keep the tradition continuing but Ive had to clean the house too in the middle of all my wedding stuff. I was planning to clean the house right before we leave for Disney anyways, so I just puches it up like 2 weeks and will do a light cleaning before the wedding. We will have 14 people at our house for Thanksgiving!

In the meatime of all that, we made our final payment to Disney of $4351.00... with our total with them coming to $17,351.00, and our wedding total coming to $32,000! Yea wayyyyyy over budget.

My moms dress will be done with alterations this Tuesday, and my dress will be done the following Monday! Yay so excited!

I have also finished some things, and received a few things in the mail... maybe tomorrow I can get pictures up here.

I'm envious that your day is so close! Loved all the pics from the Fantasyland expansion. We were there the same weekend and picked up our annual passes, too, though I think we went on Sunday vice Saturday. Like you, we thought the queue for Ariel's ride was very good and the ride cute, though obviously geared for the younger kids. We also thought BOG for lunch was quite tasty and how you order and are served is quite unique. As for the brew, it was just okay, I thought. I did drink all of mine with lunch at BOG, but it was lacking something. Here's hoping Ariel shows up at your wedding!

Here are the pics from my last fitting! The only thing it needs now is to be pressed. Dont mind the funny faces, and the jewelery I am wearing is not what I am wearing the wedding day. I LOVE my bustle!







Here is a pic of the shawl I got to match my dress.



Hope you guys like it!!!!
