The Proposal!
So Wes wanted to surprise me with the actual proposal. We picked out the ring from his mom's collection on Saturday and he had fun torturing me Saturday night and all day Sunday.
He said on the way home from Maryville that we'd do a special dinner together Wednesday night - so I was prepared for the proposal then.
I get up pretty early (5:30 AM is pretty early to me - I have a 45 minute commute. Yuck!) and he is not typically an early riser.
A few minutes before my alarm went off this morning, I heard a noise that woke me up - I didn't know what it was, but I noticed that Wes wasn't in bed. When my alarm went off, I got up to find him making breakfast for me.
I told him I got up at 5:45, so he was planning on giving me breakfast in bed. Instead, I had it after my shower.
He was pretty quiet - I had a feeling what he was up to...and I started getting nervous!
Pretty silly since I knew it was coming, we'd already picked out the ring and I've already half planned the wedding!
I started rambling, like I have a tendency to do.
Finally he said:
I've made breakfast, but I need help making something else....will you make me the happiest man on earth?

Awww!
Yes! Of course I will!



I went and got it sized today!

I'm having a hard time because I keep getting distracted by it. It's so shiny!

Cel love the ring! Mine is the same shape. I remember just staring at it all the time, sometimes still do.

Are we ever going to get a picture of the groom? Or are you hiding him until the big day...

Nabbers! I forget that you never get on facebook. I just assumed you all had seen pics of him!

Me and him at Disney on Ice!



At a friend's birthday party.

Thanks! I've been a longtime lurker on the wedding boards - dreaming of the day.
I'm just so excited I can actually POST on wedding sites now instead of being a stalker.

There was a "wedding planning for those not yet engaged" thread a few years ago and I MIGHT have been a contributor.

If there are any single ladies reading this, I felt your pain from 1997 to just a couple of weeks ago.
That's a long time! But hang in there.
Prayer and kissing a million frogs is what got me through.

Quick Update - Various Things

So far, I've been very pleased with the responses I've gotten back from people. I'm only SLIGHTLY impatient!

Disney Group Travel gave me an email proposal within 2 days of contacting them.
The amount they quoted me could potentially save my guests a lot of money, but I'll have to wait until closer in to decide anything since most of the people I know are most likely coming are going to be staying offsite.
Both my matron of honor and my friend who is helping decorate(Bridget) have family in town.
Wes's mom is planning on renting a huge house with her timeshare points, so I imagine almost all of his family will stay there.

Some people also might decide to stay at the Swan or Dolphin, so we'll see how it goes!

I have the wedding website started and I know a large portion of it will be tips for my guests – of course, I’m guessing most of them won’t bother to read it, but oh well!

Disney Event Planning was pretty prompt with their initial response about the Fantasmic! Dessert party, so that’s encouraging as well.

I’m really interested in Randy Chapman for photography – I think he’ll get mine and Wes’s personality…
But he hasn’t responded just yet.

My friend Pete (Bridget’s husband) is an incredible photographer, but I want him to be a guest, not have to work.
I might get him to take some pictures at the dessert party if Disney doesn’t mind too much.
I need to ask JBeanBunny (a Disney cruise bride and the person I borrowed the invitation idea from) how it works actually in the park since she’s a cast member in that area.

I really want the officiant to be someone from my church, but most of the people I’ve approached aren’t able to make the trip.

Oh! And I ordered a Cricut Mini off of eBay yesterday! I can’t wait to start on my cards!

Tentative Wedding Weekend Plans
Arrive Thursday – Meet everyone for the Fort Wilderness Campfire – Smores, sing a longs, Disney movies and Chip and Dale – all for FREEEEE!
(I’ve never done this, so Wes and I will check it out in our planning trip)
Friday – Wes and I will be at the Canada pavilion in Epcot at 11:15 and will move in a counter clockwise direction around World Showcase. All those interested in eating, shopping and drinking around the world, helping Phineas and Ferb catch evil doers and visiting all Kidcot spots can meet us there.
I figure this will be a great way to show all ages of people what Disney has to offer – it’s not all about rides and Fantasyland, but some people don’t know that!
Plus, since there’s not many shows or rides, everyone can wander in and out as they want. I plan on hanging out around there or the Boardwalk until we get tired and go back to our room (planning on renting points at the Boardwalk).
Saturday – Wedding around 11 AM, hopefully. Then everyone is free to do whatever until approximately 5 since the dessert party at Disney Studios will start at 6! I can’t wait! I’ve already asked Disney dessert planning if it’s ok if most of the party meets from inside the park and those few without tickets get escorted in. They said it wouldn’t be a problem. I told them I want to ride tower of terror as many times as I can both before and after the Dessert party, so I don't want to have to worry about where my guests are!
Sunday – Goodbye brunch at around 11 AM – hopefully a character meal.
I’ll need help figuring out the wording for the brunch.
It’s probably not going to be in our budget to pay for everyone – so I need a polite way of saying that.
After I plan on Wes and I going to Animal Kingdom and anyone that wants to tag along (and not be a pain in the keister! ) can come.
Monday morning we’re switching resorts to Bonnet Creek – so that will be everyone’s cue to leave us alone!

Hey Celery!

Just joining in! Congrats on becoming official! I am a fellow cradle robber myself (I am 35 and my DB 26) I know how you felt about being early because I am in the process of waiting for my DB to save up the money for a ring since he does not want to use credit. So I patiently wait and lurk around the boards...

Looking forward to seeing your plans unfold

Welcome, tigger!

Starting on Invitations

I got my cricut mini!
I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to figure it out since I've never used a cricut before, but it went pretty good.

Here's my first prototype:


I'll probably add some glitter accents just for fun!

Cel, your plans sound great.

I am still hoping my daughter will opt for the wedding by her uncles pool as I suggested. She still expects us to pay. Didnt that go out with giving goats to the husband?

Speaking of weddings though, in German it is called "Hochzeit", literally translated as "High Time". So enjoy!

Unofficial Engagement Photos
I'm planning on having my friend Pete do an engagement photo session with us at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel once the Christmas decorations are up. I've also asked Randy Chapman to do a session with us in April or May when we hopefully have our pre wedding trip.
But I wanted a few pics with the dogs and with fall colors, so I had my sister come take pics of us today. Here are my favorites.
