+---Topic: My Wedding started by mickeyvw98

I am a huge Mickey fan. My husband is really a Tigger and Goofy fan but he's very good about my Mickey stuff. I asked him if we could have a Mickey Themed wedding a little bit after he proposed. He said sure so I started my search.
We thought about doing the whole wedding in Disney but it just wasn't feasible. Most of the people we wanted to come couldn't travel to FL from NY. Plus it was a little over our budget to have everyone there. So instead we added a Mickey theme to our wedding here. Most of the stuff, cake servers, cake topper, jewelry for me, etc. came from e-bay. We also found < Gift Creek Bridal > for the ring bearer pillow, flower girl basket and extra fabric to make the vest for my husband to wear (we had a little extra so we made a tie for my dad to wear also). The unity candle, invitations, gift basket, guest book photo matte, and a few other things were made by me. I found a really cute graphic of Mickey and Minnie on the internet and made them from it. Our flowergirl wore a minnie bridal hat from WDW, while our ringbearer wore the mickey top hat from WDW. They really stole the show. The centerpieces were candle globes with Mickey attached to the ribbon (my husband's mom made those). All in all I think it turned out really nice.
For our honeymoon we went to WDW. It was my first plane ride and trip to WDW. We stayed off the resort, it was a gift from a very nice couple for our wedding. But we spent every day in a different part of WDW. In MGM and Epcot I wore the hat my flowergirl had worn (the top hat didn't fit my husband ). I figured in Animal Kingdom it would be bad to have the veil hanging down in the back. We got some special treatment. In Fantasmia we got to sit in the "reserved" seating. It was an awesome view. I greatly recommend WDW for honeymooners!!!

We have pictures of quite a few things. Our professional pictures aren't back yet... I've got to call her and find out when they'll be ready.

We don't have the professional pictures back yet but I have some pictures beforehand of the stuff I made. You can see the ringbearer pillow and flower girl basket on Gift Creek Bridal's website. I hope to have the professional ones back soon.
