Busy, Busy, Busy

So, we are FINALLY getting our Disney Wedding Planner this Wednesday (supposedly). I'm starting to doubt most of what Disney says at this point though. Everything seems to be happening a month later than they say. It wouldn't be a big deal, except there are a lot of things I want to book, like the photo booth, that I cannot until I am assigned my planner to be certain it will work with my facilities and is okay. Like I've mentioned in the past, Disney is great but there are A LOT of rules! We just laughed and laughed when we signed the contract. There are things like "you agree not to take any left over cake except for the top layer." Wow!!! We paid for the expensive thing... wow.

I bought my dress last Saturday! I LOVE it! The lovely woman at the store pulled it for me, and it was far and away the best! It is quite formal though, and I do have some fears that the bridesmaids will not be formal enough. They will be wearing short dresses and ballet flats. I'm sure it'll be fine, I just hope they don't feel out of place. Here are some pics:

My Dress! I can't wait to see it in "my size!" This one was a little big, so it wasn't as snug and body hugging as I would've liked. :)

One of the bridesmaids dresses. I'm nervous for this dress. It is SUPER cute, but the wedding is a winter wedding. I am afraid the bridesmaids will be FREEZING and may look under dressed in a winter wedding. Even in Orlando it gets down to 50 degrees at night regularly.

The other bridesmaids dress, except it will be in the clover green as well. This dress is MUCH dressier and VERY pretty on. It is a very flattering dress for every body type.

The back of my dress.

Shoes the bridesmaids will be wearing. I would've liked something a bit dressier, but sadly the ones I chose have been discontinued. These were definitely NOT my first pick. I am going to try to remove the bows and add a crystal button or something, I think that will dress them up a bit. :) They are EXTREMELY comfortable shoes though, which is a HUGE bonus for the girls!

Overall I am very happy with the dresses, I just hope the girls are warm enough and don't feel under dressed. I can't wait to hear from our planner this week and receive our planning packet. It is going to be another busy week with many home renovations. We are still recovering from our massive house flood. I am starting to get caught up with things, so soon I will be completely back into the swing of things and posting regularly again. :) Sadly, the memory card from our trip appears to have gone missing in all of the house flood/mess. I am devastated about it, but keeping my fingers crossed it will magically appear!!! As soon as it does (oh I hope it does!), I will post them!

Your dress is gorgeous! I like both BM dresses but the second one really matches yours. You could always add pashminas for the girls which would dress them up and add some warmth. :)
