The Trial Run..... I had ten tall centerpieces and four short centerpieces. The tall had 3 cylinder vases surrounding it and small votive candles. We bought floralytes that illuminated the inside of the vase and added hanging crystal on the tall centerpieces. The flower were purple and pink roses, purple tulips, purple, pink, and periwinkle hydrangeas.
The Bouquets....I wanted my bouquet to be classic and beautiful and I decided it to be all white roses with crystals and the stem was wrapped in crystals to add some bling. For the BM I wanted roses as well to match my bouquet but also deep eggplant cala lilies and periwinkle hydrangeas to match with the whole color scheme.
OurTrue labor of Love...We searched for months for an invite that we would love but we did not find anything we loved and some that we liked were ridiculously expensive. Finally we ended up in paper source and they showed us the embossing magic and we decided to DIY our own. I came up with a Design and we both worked on a rough draft. It took us a while to finish them but we really fell in love with them. I think they are the most beautiful invites I have seen. The outside was fabric with eggplant ribbon and silver embossing with a crystal mickey. The inside was black self made pocket fold with turquoise and eggplant embossing. Our RSVP envelope had disney stamps and a self made return address bordered sticker.
The envelopes where pretty too...We ordered black envelopes online and had them addressed by Calligraphy Katrina in silver ink. She also did the return address. You cant really see from the Photo but the back was also embossed with our Monogram and to seal the envelope we bought clear mickey stickers. We also ordered custom stamps from zazzle with our monogram.
The Make- Over.... I had two Make-up trials. The first one was the same day as our engagement pic session done by Cheek Couture. The second Make-up trial done By Micheline Pitt,who was amazing ! I liked both but my mom and MOH liked my second trial better. Below: Pic of the trials. Sorry for the lack of quality due to me being in the car and one being a phone pic.
So Yummy in our Tummy.... The food and the service was the best at our food tasting . Disney made this a wonderful experience and made us feel even more confident than before that our guest would love the food and definitely not leave hungry, We had our own private dining room and were introduced to the main Chef and main Baker just to discuss our Menu. Not only that they introduced us to so many other people know as Captains that would be in charge of all the other things. Also they had so many options of how we would like our napkin to be folded a little overwhelming but very unforgettable. Below: pic of food and Menu.

I tried and tried again.... Dress shopping was one of the many fun experiences of planning a Wedding. I enjoyed going shopping with my Mom, MOH, and friends. I went to so many shops and tried on so many dresses until I finally found the ONE. Below: Pic of me trying out gowns.
