First DIY's and Vendor Report!

Hello Everyone!

Well Monday Chris and I had the day off together so before going out to lunch we mailed our save the dates and our LOA! YAY! Cannot wait to get our planning kit from Disney as well as our official wedding coordinator.

In other news we have gotten set up with most of our vendors as well.
Our Officiant is going to be Reverend Jack Day due to all of the great things I hear about him. He has sent us our ceremony planning guide so we are working on getting that back to him.

We are using Emily Gilbert photography again since we just love her and her work so much! She is working on a contract for us.

Also we are using Key Moments Films for our videographer and I have heard so many good things about them as well. But for us it has been the opposite so far. I CANNOT get her to contact me about our deposit. We want to use a credit card and she was supposed to call last week about getting our credit card info! What's up with that? This kinda annoys me since we are paying $2,000 for our wedding video. Yikes! But I guess I just need to be patient?

Anyway I have officially started on some DIY projects for the wedding.
We ordered a groupon for $12 to vistaprint giving us a $70 credit to use. We used this credit to order our save the dates and when we had money left over I wanted a shirt and we got some logo stickers with the logo chris designed to use for welcome basket items and other things here and there.


Front


Back...it looks lopsided the way I laid it out and I am just realizing how funny this is that I ordered this shirt


Here are our sticker sheets....ooo how exciting haha.

And finally tonight I worked on a wedding planning binder using the In Place products from Office Max. I feel super organized now. This looks a lot more organized in person. Pictures do not do this justice.


Outside...


look how full it is already and we are still 7 months away!


Look at all those pockets including one just for wedding purchase receipts. This really comes in handy when working on our budget.


OOO look at the pretty dividers! Oh and this one says Disney because I have our binder split into two sections...one for our Disney Wedding and One for our reception when we get back home.

Well there you go...officially the most boring post you will probably read on the disboards lol. Don't know how I can go on so long about a binder...it's the OCD talking I swear!

Congrats on signing your LOA and sending out your save the dates! I love your t-shirts and stickers: fantastic ideas! I love your binder. I just made one of those for myself about two weeks ago and my binder is already so stuffed I need to upgrade it to a larger size. Haha. I love the planning and organizational aspects of wedding planning, and who knew, because I'm usually a lot more disorganized.

Looking forward to reading more!

Your STDs are awesome! I love that your fiancé designed them himself...that makes it so special. Also, your e-pics were beautiful.

Cake Topper!

So we just got an email from Pam saying she got our LOA and that we will be getting our wedding coordinator in 7-10 business days! YAY for that! I can't wait to start getting this thing going. I can't believe that in November we will only be 7 months away! It is coming quick. I still remember when we got engaged and were a year and a half out. Man time flies!

But anyway in other quick news we also got our cake topper. We found this at Hallmark while killing time at the mall a couple weeks ago. I think it goes well with our vintage theme.



We also got these cool vintage paper straws the same day! Hopefully I can get them to put these out on the buffet or something.


Hope the wedding plans are coming together for you all as well fellow Disbrides!

Park Ring Pics!

So I came across these the other day while looking through our trip pictures from June. I was testing my photography skills at AK while Chris was riding Everest.

Wow your pictures are so artistic! The first one makes your ring look gargantuan!! My favorite is the last picture, I just love how clearly you can see the beauty of your ring and the Animal Kingdom scenery in the background
