Then, I found the Disney Wedding Podcast, and little did I know, but basically, my life was about to change.
Little by little, I felt like I had an actual grasp on what planning a Disney wedding would be like, and how much it might cost. Without Carrie's blog and podcast, I would have been way more tentative to contact Disney when the time came.
Unbelievably, Carrie also WROTE A BOOK ABOUT PLANNING A DISNEY WEDDING. After planning her own wedding and feeling frustrated about the lack of resources and accessible information, she put her money where her mouth is and did something about it, subsequently changing all future Disney brides' lives (or at least the smart ones who found her!)
I decided I wouldn't allow myself to buy the book until we were at least engaged and knew Disney was a legitimate possibility.
We were engaged on 3/23/13. I bought the book on 3/24/13.
Disney Wedding Podcast gets a new episode every Wednesday, and I eagerly await it every week! In fact, I love listening to old episodes in the morning while I get ready for work in the bathroom. Once, I guess I was playing it a bit too loud, and BW Groom sent me a text while he was still in bed saying, "Hey honey? Carrie's kind of loud this morning - can you turn it down?"
So thank you, Lord of the Disney wedding! Your resources have been invaluable, and I'm borderline obsessed with them. I would be frustrated ALL THE TIME if I didn't have the podcast, book, and blog.
Speaking of which...how did anyone ever plan a wedding without the internet??
I don't want to even think about it.
