I can't wait to see how everything comes together!
By the time your ceremony is over, we'll be on our way to our dessert party- we're just a hop skip and a jump away from there, so go eat everything that is left!! :-) Getting close to the 200 day mark, Sarah!

Thank you for posting your BEO, it really does help a lot. Even though you're having more guests, I feel like, if we end up with approximately the same amount per person as you, then we'll actually come out right around where we want to be. It may be muddled thinking, but it makes sense to me.

So exciting that you found your dress!

I tried to comment on your dress on Facebook but every times tried to, my phone would lock up! You looked so pretty!!! Was it different than what you planned on? The dress I picked was so different than what I thought I wanted.

Thank you so much for posting your BEO. It's so helpful as I plan my 125 person wedding at the same venues!
I also loved your wording in your STD and hope you don't mind I took some sentences!

That totally makes sense in my head too! I just read your PJ- such cool ideas. I love the multicolored idea!

Thank you! It was totally different than what I planned on. I don't love lace, so that was different, and I expected to have more of a ball gown. It wasn't on my list of dresses to try on, but she brought it out and I couldn't get over how much better it looked on me.

Glad it could help! Feel free to steal anything you want- I stole so much from other Disbrides that the wedding is hardly my own!

This just in...

We have changed pretty much the whole wedding! Moved to a 7:30 ceremony, our Illuminations party is now our cocktail hour, and we are having our reception in the American Adventure Rotunda. Switching from buffet to plated. Aaaah crazy times 5 months before the wedding.

Amazing!! What made you change everything???? I LOVE the AAR! I can't wait to see your photos. I can't wait to hear the story behind your changes. Will it change your BEO a lot?

Saw this over on FB. Excellent news! Congratulations! It may be more work for the next couple months but you are going to so much happier looking back knowing that you didn't compromise on your dream location! It's going to be breathtakingly beautiful!

Well, on Tuesday the announcement was made that DFTW will now let outside photographers into in park events, which makes it a lot more affordable. AAR has always been my dream location, and this kind of pushed it over the edge. I think we'll come out about even (or maybe a little under) because we were just about to add a Soarin ride mix in, which won't happen now. We'll be losing about 4k worth of desserts from the dessert party (since we'll be doing cocktail hour now), so that definitely helps balance things out. The venue rental fee is more and we'll need some more decorations and transportation. Funny thing is, we sent our invitations to be printed Tuesday morning at Michael's. When I saw the announcement, I called and told them HOLD THE PRESS! lol while it got all sorted out.

Hi. I think you misunderstood. Our date hopefully will be 6/28/14 so it's a bit of time. Getting great ideas from these boards! Looking forward to your posts!
