Believe it or not, Mr. Llama and I think that it's possible to OD on Disney... sort of (Truthfully, I had written that sentence and showed it to Mr. L and his response was, "Well ... not really!" He likes his Disney...) And even though our wedding will take place there, we don't want our guests to be puking Mickeys for a week.
BW Groom and I have been to a number of weddings together, and it was always a given that for our own wedding, we would have someone officiate who had a personal connection with us. The ceremonies that we love best are personalized to the couple - nothing scripted. Not only is it more special for the couple, but I think these one-of-a-kind ceremonies are much more interesting for your audience-- I mean guests (sorry - that's the Theatre major coming out of me...) You're much less likely to see your guests do this:

So...picking up where I left off in the last blog!
After we left Disney, my in-laws, my parents, BW Groom and I headed to Innisbrook, where my parents live for the winter. They had made an appointment with their wedding planner for the next day, and I was excited to see what kinds of amenities my other childhood vacation "home" had to offer.
For most ceremonies, Innisbrook uses a picture-esque spot featuring a tree with Spanish Moss:

You may have noticed that I'm "Planning with Pixie Dust."
If you know me, you already know this, but...we're getting married at Disney World.
You guys, I can't even explain how excited we are that this is actually happening. However, while we're both Disney fanatics, you won't be seeing a princess-y, tiara-wearing, horse-drawn carriage-riding, Mickey-and-Minnie-attended wedding. Nope nope nope.
If you've ever seen pictures of a Disney wedding, you've likely seen The Wedding Pavilion, While stunning, this chapel-like setting just didn't feel much like us.
