April 3rd 2018 is the day we say “I Do”.
We’re so excited and so lucky. My fiancé, Toney and I are both Disney lovers so we’ve chosen to get married at Walt Disney World here in our new home Florida! I can’t wait to share this magical journey with you all.
The planning prep, information and options they give you for a Disney Fairytale Wedding is incredible. We have our first planning session in September, which involves a whole day to discuss “every little detail” as stated by our wedding planner Sara. We’re currently debating several aspects of our wedding but are mostly smaller details such as the flavors for our wedding cake (that’s actually a massive aspect in my opinion! Don’t judge, ha). We get to sample our menu and the cake on the planning day next month which includes; hazelnut, churro & mint choc chip are just a snapshot of the flavors available! There are too many options to choose from (Suggestions!?). We’re thinking three tiers with a different flavor for each one. Below is one of the cakes we saw when we visited Disney for our consultation.
Since planning our wedding I’ve come to the realization of how stressful planning your wedding actually is.
It’s quite amusing when you really think about it, your wedding day is about you and your soul mate celebrating your love for one another, yet you find yourself saying things like “Well, what about aunt Barb & her husband, they won’t eat that”. You get wrapped up in making in special for everyone else and forget that it’s YOUR day. So I’m constantly reminding myself that its our big day and not everyone else’s. Luckily my parents keep reminding me that too!
So, along with what style and flavor of cake to have, we still need to consider flowers, reception food, decor & much more. We have decided on our color theme, the song for our first dance and TODAY we have posted our wedding invitations to all of our guests!
Although there is still so much to decided on, I still can’t believe the potential to how magical this day will be. I feel so lucky, its like I’m in a dream. We’re hiring a private balcony next to our reception room at the Grand Floridian so we can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks “Happily Ever After”. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!
I will keep you all updated along our special journey.
