I was at a bridal shop trying on dresses (hubby wants me to wear a dress for our renewal of vows). The sales associate brought over some wedding dresses without a train on it. One of the dresses was what I would call a fairy tale princess dress. Lots of lace, huge hooped skirt, long lace sleeves. I stepped out and OH MY GOD, I looked more like the ugly step-sister. All of that lace, my large bone frame… just made me shudder with disgust!
I then tried on a very simple dress, no lace, no hooped skirt. It was a very simple, emerald green, capped sleeved, empire waisted dress. The dress made my green eyes stand out. So I have pretty much decided that any dress that I buy for the renewal, will be made with very simple lines.
So ladies. Have you ever tried on a wedding dress that looked like a fairy tale on the hanger, but made you look like the ugly step-sister?
I’m looking forward to hearing your stories.
I love Anne Hathaway’s wedding dress in Princess Diaries 2. Anyone know where there’s a dress online that style?
I WOULD LIKE TO MARRY A BOY NAMED COLE OUR WEDDING WOULD BE A HAWIAN THEME AND IT BE INFLORDIA I WOULD GET A SKY BLUE COLOR DRESS WITH DIAMONDS EVERYWHERE AND HE WOULD BE IN A WHITE TUX AND EVERYONE WOULD BE THERE AND THERE WOULD BE WHITE ROSES AND IT WOULD BE BY THE OCEAN AND THERE WOULD BE A 6 FOOT CAKE WITH CANDY ON IT AND FOR OUR HUNNYMOON WE WOULD GO TO DISNEY LAND IN A BLACK STRECH HUMMER WE WOULD STAY THERE FOR 1 WEEK AND HAVE THE TIME OF OUR LIFES!! (;+)LOL
So anyway this past summer my aunt went crazy. As in flipping out on her husband and assaulting him for no reason in their apartment. She was arrested and locked up. My mom tried to help her sister by trying to get her help (all while her mother had a heart attack, my dad had a semi heart attack) but instead the sister started contacting me, my sister and my dad telling them how evil my mom was and that she was going to sue them. Her own family did nothing even though her kids are all over thirty and engaged and have jobs. Her husband basically just left.
She got released from jail and ended up loosing her job. After a few weeks of acting crazy she went missing and presumably lived on the street after her credit card was canceled, car keys were taken away and she was baker acted and locked up. After she got released she decided to take her daughter on a trip to Disney and this ended up with the state police stopping her car after a high speed chase and arresting her. Apparently she was driving at a high rate of speed in her car, and wouldn’t slow down or let her daughter out. Subsequently she ended up getting a divorce and she is in mental health treatment.
After all the mean stuff she did to my mom my mom gives her large sums of money, and forgives her. She says my aunt is bipolar and she is under stress because her son has skin cancer. I tell my mom that is a cop out. How come all of a sudden she flips out if she has never before.
Throughout her entire life my aunt has made my mom cry by telling her that me and my sister were screw ups and my mom wasn’t a good parent. I ended up going to the best college out of any members of my extended family. Her kids got kicked out of college, have been in abusive relations, and have crappy jobs.
So anyway my cousin is getting married and I will probably have to be in contact with my crazy aunt at the wedding. I am a very polite person, but if she starts in with my mom she is going to get told to stay away.
Am I off my rocker? My mom is very passive and I feel like since I am almost twenty four, and have listened to this crazy lady all my life. I want to pepper spray the crap out and then give her an Arkansas gravel bath of her but in reality i will probably just tell her to stay away from us. She seems to really like drama, for instance at my graduation party she decided to announce that her son had cancer and ruin my party.
My wedding will be at Disney World and I had an idea.
Since this will be a very Fairy Taleish wedding, in the program I’ll put:
(Those are the groomsmen.)
(He’s the ring barer.)
(She’s my MOH)
(those are the bridesmaids)
The Little Mermaids:
(those are the flower girls)
Prince Charming and Cinderella:
Daniel and Paige Peters
(me and my fiance)
What do you think? Do you think that would be a cute idea? The dresses for the bridal party do resemble the princesses names I’ve given them.
Do you think that’s a cute idea? Or do you think people won’t get it?
I am getting married on Oct. 11, 2008 on a cruise ship. It is a 7 day cruise to the Eastern Carribean. Me and my fiancee are getting married on the ship and then when we come back, we are going to have a reception for friends and family. My family is angry because they won’t actually be there to see me get married. His family is happy with what we choose. I was just wondering if this has happen to anyone else or something similar to this. We chose a cruise ship wedding together. I thought the wedding was supposed to be our idea not theres. Also has anyone ever been married or on The Disney Cruise ship line. Thanks for anyone who can offer some advice.
As of right now, yes. We (Orlando) were supposed to get hit today and it looks like it’s not going to happen. Apparently it’s going up towards Jacksonville. I’m not the weatherman but my initial reaction would be to tell you yes, you’ll be fine. However, storms are unpredictable so I would suggest keeping your eye on the news.
Like I said, I’m not worried. Have a great time while you’re here!
This can only be done with Disney Weddings if it’s true.
My wife and I got married in November at the France pavillion in Epcot at the Walt Disney World resort. It was really a great experience. Most of the wedding planning and services were provided by Disney, including floral, the music, the catering for both receptions, etc. The wedding planners were very thorough and attentive to our needs and suggestions. We were able to customize the menu for our reception and we provided a sketch of what we wanted our wedding cake to look like, and the Disney pastry chefs exceeded our expectations with their design. We opted to host a second, dessert reception at night on the day of our wedding. We had it at the lower UK pavillion at Epcot, during Illuminations, the firework show in the World Showcase. It was a really cool way to end the day. In all, it was a great experience.
My wife and I also enjoyed a few perks with getting married at Disney. We found out that, on the wedding night they would provide us with a free night in a suite at the resort of our choice. We got to stay in one of the Garden Suites at the Boardwalk, which was very luxurious. And several months before the wedding, our wedding planner sent us both annual passes to the parks as kind of a Thank You gift for having our wedding with Disney. It was totally unexpected.
By having our wedding in Epcot, we had to make it an early morning wedding, at 9am, before the park opened to guests. This meant having to get up early, going backstage, etc. But it was nice because we had a lunch reception and the rest of the day to celebrate, be with friends, etc. The problem with having a wedding at the castle, for example, aside from the high price, is that the wedding has to be done at night, after the guests have left. And they only have certain days during the year that you can get married in Magic Kingdom. If you’re really interested, be sure to contact them and they will provide alot of information that will be helpful in planning.
