All you need is Pixie Dust

Your shoes are amazing! I love, love, love Lady! My DF are also dog people!
Same, I have barely been on the disboards lately!I've been busy and pretty absent.
Ugh, I'm not looking forward to all the money I still owe for our wedding. But yay for you being almost finished paying for everything!Made a few final payments, just have the dessert party one left. Nothing to make it feel real like spending thousands of dollars out of your bank account!
I wasn't even planning on doing invitations, but Luke's family kept asking so we finally just ordered some cheap ones from Vistaprint. I can't wait to see what yours looked like, I remember the picture you posted when you were still playing around with the design you wantedInvitations have been finished and mailed. I will come back and post pictures of them after, when I don't have to worry about hiding dates and things. I'm happy with how they came out, even though the inside wasn't how I first imagined they'd end up. Zack was great with helping, thank goodness, because I've worked so dang much. They went out a little later than I would have liked, but on the other hand, we already know who's coming and they have a good idea of what's going on.
Ooh! Please explain this Uber code to me. Does it mean that you'll be paying the bill on the ride? Because this is something we've been talking about (so much cheaper than paying Disney for charters), but we didn't realize there was a way to set it up - we were just going to hand people cash to pay them back for the ride haha.I need to set up our Uber code, which is how we're providing transportation for everyone. If I'm remembering right, the cheapest shuttle I could get for us was $600 + taxes, fees, and tip. Everyone is staying at different places which made it hard too. This way they can just grab an Uber to the ceremony, and we'll all do it together to go to lunch. I'm going to make little cards with the code to hand out once we're down there for people to keep on them. I also might throw my referral code on there for any first time riders...
I'm only having cake because it's included with our Escape package - neither one of us really love cake that much. You could always just get a tiny little 6" cake if you just wanted to ceremonially cut something?I'm torn on a cake because of Food and Wine festival and the Dessert Party.
Haha, I feel you on that one! We did our engagement pictures on the weekend, and I realized I have no idea how to do anything with my hair other than straighten it (and I use my straightener maybe three times a year?).I'll probably be pretty happy no matter what because fancy hair and makeup are not one of my skills.
I'm glad there's just one $1000+ payment leftUgh, I'm not looking forward to all the money I still owe for our wedding. But yay for you being almost finished paying for everything!
Yes! I'm so glad I came across it last year. A shuttle for us would have to go to AKL, POR, the Dolphin, 2 Disney Springs hotels... at least. The cheapest quote I got was $600 not including tip. I just went back and read a bunch of reviews from the Knot/Weddingwire from people using it to, just before I set it up the other day. When I found it last year there wasn't much in the way of reviews.Ooh! Please explain this Uber code to me. Does it mean that you'll be paying the bill on the ride?

I might do something like that. I have a cake topper I want to use, and there's just a few traditional things I'm torn on having like the cake cutting.I'm only having cake because it's included with our Escape package - neither one of us really love cake that much.

The only time my hair is ever straight anymore, is when I get it cut. Only because they usually straighten it to check the cutHaha, I feel you on that one!

Hi! I enjoyed following your trip on here and on Instagram! Can't wait to hear more! Looked beautiful in your pictures so far <3 I've been pretty behind on the boards without leaving, so I can only imagine!It took me forever (sorry!!) but I finally got over here and got caught up! Just in time, apparently! You must be almost to the day...or are you there now? Anyway, sooo exciting!! I'm sorry for all the trials and drama you've endured to get to this place, but it will be amazing and soo worth it! I highly recommend bringing your stylist a few inspiration pictures like the ones you posted for your hair and makeup. You can tell them it doesn't have to look exactly like that or anything, but just to give them a general idea of what kinds of things you like. I did that for my hair, and I loved it. I didn't do it for my makeup, and I was not a fan. Looking back, one of my few regrets was feeling like I had super heavy eyebrows and raccoon eyes on my wedding day, as silly and unimportant as it sounds. I have so many things to comment on—should have quoted things along the way!—but suffice it to say that I'm SO excited for you, and I hope to hear all about it between now and then and/or after the Disneymoon (which will be amazing!!)
Yay!! CONGRATS! Heading over soon!We’re back!
We survived and we’re all legal and everything!
I'm going to do a TR for the whole trip, so I'm going to start working on that, but I'll also come back and post or link just the wedding stuff on here.
Here's the TR:
Forever Could Even Start Today, Wedding & Disneymoon Sept 17
No worries, I totally understand being behind on the Dis and being busy! Especially post-wedding! Jeesh! A lot of it is chatter. But I also realized I only have about two months before our next trip, so I think I'm trying to squeeze out updates asap! It'll never be finished before our next trip though, I'm sure. There's just too much to tell!Thanks! I need to get started on yours, it's in my watched threads list and I'm intimidated because it's so long already!
