- Wedding: April 2014
Hello fellow bees!
This is my first post so please excuse any ‘newbie’ qualities of my posting. 🙂
I was just proposed to less than a month ago down in WDW in Cinderella’s Castle. It was very romantic, down on one knee, my ring brought out on a platter full of roses and in Cinderella’s slipper, they set off fireworks just for us, we had a special Cinderella dessert. I couldn’t have asked for anything more because I’m such a Disney fan. Now for the good stuff… the wedding planning!!
We don’t have an official date yet, but since I was originally going to have a cherry blossom themed wedding which means I’d HAVE to have the wedding late April or early May so I’d have the best opportunity to have the blossoms… It’s going to be 2014. I had everything down to a T for this theme for years since my grandmother passed away. However, I found this venue in Boston called “Fairmont Copley Plaza” and the Oval Room looks SO much like Beauty and the Beast’s ballrooom. So then my themed change (IF I can definitely book this venue). Since I now have no idea on any decor, invitation, etc… I need your help! I found this really cute centerpiece idea. It’s a light pink rose (staying with my original colors too!) in a bud vase, on top of a book, but underneath a glass dome top with candles all around it. That’d be on most tables and some tables would be a intricate candleabra (to be like Lumier).
… This is about as far as I’ve gotten and I can’t seem to decide on anything else. I don’t want it to seem too Disne cheesy so I figured a Fairytale theme would be right along the same lines as beauty and the beast. Any ideas would be much appreciated! Invitations, Favors, Card Holders, Candy bar, etc. I’m so lost!! 🙁
I did have some ideas to ask my bridesmaids to be my bridesmaids. It’s ordered, I just have to wait for them to come! I ordered them each a personalized hanger with their name on it for their bridesmaids dresses, I bought them each the same simple cubic zirconia bracelet to wear on the day of the wedding. I can’t wait to ask! I’m trying to think of some additional little gifts to ask my Best friend to be my Maid Of Honor and my sister to be my Matron of Honor… any cute ideas for that one either? I saw the idea of “item of the month club” and I liked it, but they’re expensive so I was thinking of doing my own personalized shipments of things. I still want an initial gift for asking them and I can’t think of one though.
