Tatiana & Thomas 01/24/2014 (MK Castle/Summer House/Epcot)

Hi!

I finally decided to start my PJ. So many ideas and I am scared to forget most before the wedding actually happens.

Here is a little info about us:

Myself: My name is Tatiana. I am originally from Russia, but came to US to study. I graduated from BU in 2009 and moved to Phoenix for job. I was very scared of moving to the new city, but little did I know that I would meet my future fiance.

My fiance: His is name is Thomas. He is originally from Chicago. Tom works as Benefits Consultant and we will soon celebrate his 40th birthday!



Our plans: We started talking about the wedding nearly the next day after our first date. We are together for year and half and its a best period in my life!

I am completely obsessed with Disney, especially princesses - so there were no question where the wedding will be. Tom tried to make me consider "Chicago bears" theme.. well, maybe for vows renewal, ... second vows renewal

When I think of Disney - I see Cinderella castle - so the ceremony venue was very easy to determine... The reception was tricky. Given that ceremony will take place in the morning, you want to see more relaxed reception venue.. So ballroom won't work. We had our first appointment with DFTW coordinator (Bill - anybody worked with him??) and he showed us amazing setting for Summer House in Grand Floridian. Its under construction now, but we were promised that it will be done soon and will look better than before.
And of course being chocolate junkies - we could not miss a dessert party. I still did not set up my mind on one particular place - any isola will work so..

The theme is obviously Disney Princesses. I am really trying not to turn it into kid birthday party, but sometimes not very successful.
For ceremony we are using Cinderella theme, including glass slippers, carriage necklaces and pumpkin flower girl basket. More details to come..
For reception we want to make it feel very beachy and use Ariel as inspiration. We want to use surfboard as guest book and small bottles in the sand as place cards.
For dessert party we will invite guests to Jasmine world with candles, carpets and pillows.

MK Castle ceremony date can only be released 6 months in advance, so our tentative date is 01/24/2014. November 2013 did not work (Halloween&Christmas), so we moved the date to 2014. I hate doing that, but I did set up my mind on Castle and don't want to change.

Here is our initial plan/summary:
01/30/2014 Rehearsal, Wishes cruise to treat bridal party and family. We don't plan regular rehearsal dinner, instead we are taking most important to us people for an adventure to see best fireworks!
01/31/2014 Ceremony in MK, Reception in Summer House, Dessert party in Epcot.
02/02/2012 MK Photoshoot
02/03/2014 - Disney Dream Cruise

Cake

I am madly in love with this cake:


However, it does not match the them at all

So I was thinking to ask Disney to create something similar with Ariel and Eric. I love this cake topper:


But unfortunately it is awfully expensive. Has anybody seen nice Ariel/Eric cake topper anywhere? If I pay $400 I will probably have no room for cake in my budget...

I was also considering to use fishbowl with fish instead of rose in vase and put this castle inside it:


Real fish might be too creepy so...

I am loving all your inspiration photos! Those wedding dresses are gorgeous! I really love your cake ideas. Have you tried looking for the Ariel and Eric topper on ebay or another similar site?
