Didn't mean to be prying or anything either, please don't take it that way cheesy.gif
Girl that is sooo not prying. Anyway, anyone can feel free to ask me anything they want. I'm not the shy or quiet type in case ya haven't noticed. lmao

No, the kids aren't coming...for a few reasons.
a.) they are little and even by next year, they will still only be 4. Little kids on beaches freak me out without them even being MY little kids on beaches. I just dont think, under the circumstances, it would be really safe for them. Yea, we have some peeps who would volunteer to look out for them....but everyone coming all that way is entitled to a good time. Not babysitting duty.

b.) I can't turn off "Mommy" and just be "Bride" anytime they are around. It just doesn't work that way and no matter who was there trying to take care of them, I'd still be "Did they eat? Oh, thats not enough/good enough. It's bath time, lets go. Don't hit your sister. Hey--stay over here by mommy and papi!" You get my meaning. lol And again...the safety thing. I'd spend the entire time worried about where they were. Keeping track of four is a lot different than keeping track of one naturally.

c.) the airlines don't care how tiny the butts are that are going in the seats. It would mean an additional 4 airline tickets, and even best case scenario, that will add over a thousand bucks to our total....and anytime we can save a thousand or more, it means a lot to us financially in this family.

I think with older children, it's different than it is with toddlers ofcourse. Theres just too much care and worry involved on a trip of this nature. It's just not logical to even try. We're gonna try to take them to Disney in 2011. They will be 5 and better able to LISTEN and actually take things in and enjoy it.

Just a head's up...I was working with the "Cat" last year for our wedding. We decided on a different resort, but PART of the problem I had was this chick refused to book us until we were within 8 months. Now, that alone wouldn't have been a huge deal...but when you're trying to get STD's and such done and you want to be able to tell people you know where you're going, its tough. BUT...the info was inconsistent. Some girls she would book as far as a year out, but with us, she first said 10 months, then when I contacted her inside that range, she said 8. I just got tired of it.

It's actually funny, because she emailed me like a month ago asking if we were still having our wedding there. A MONTH AGO. My original date was April 24, 2009....and she was just getting back to me in early April to confirm? Please.

All of the coordinators at the resorts are horrible about responding to emails in a timely fashion...thats uniform across the board, so I don't blame her specifically. It's just something we brides have to deal with.

Morgan, another lovely lady here on the forum had her wedding there and was very satisfied with everything. I don't doubt they can do a fabulous job for you...just wanted to give you a head's up about the problems to expect.

Heck no you aren't too early for a ticker, girl! You're within a year!! I see lots of gals with them up to two years out!

I'm so happy to be officially within 12 months now...I want a ticker, but my siggy is already full. lol Maybe next month.

miss di, i agree with savannah... ticker it up!! and by the way, the picture in your siggy is absolutely adorable! i definitely haven't seen anything like that before.. are you going to use a similar theme on STDs, invitations, etc.?

 

savannah, i just have to say i think it takes a lot more courage to be smart and not have the kiddos come with you than it would to try to get them all down there! you obviously know yourself well enough that you realize you wouldn't be able to turn off the mommy part of your brain and fully appreciate the day if they're running around. disney will be a BLAST though i'm sure!! something they'll be able to appreciate and enjoy more too!

Thank you SO much for the info! Thats my problem. I really want to get things booked. My family and friends are traveling from England and my boys family from America. So the sooner the better. Thinking we are just going to book the hotel and flights from England, then keep our fingers crossed that we can get a date! I know it sounds a bit stupid, but getting a flight is a bit tricky. Not so many seats available.
We will see.

BTW Your boys are gorgeous! You must be very proud.

thank you!! and - yes, i'll get that ticker up ASAP! i am using the picture for just about everything - it's our take on a monogram...JUST got my STDs in, here's how we have used the monogram so far and there will be much more to come wink.gif:

the artist has also screenprinted an 11x17 (minus the names) for our wall. i think that making something similar could be totally easy with a picture and photoshop if you're interested in making something for yourself...i didn't think about that BEFORE i commissioned it out, of course, but looking back, could've been pretty simple.

Hi All,

 

I too, am on here VERY early! But in just the few short days I've been poking around on the site I have learned SOOO much, and got so many neat ideas. I too (futuremrssears) didn't know anything about OOT bags. And think they are the neatest things!

Have so much to learn and think this site is incredible.

Our date 'picked' is October 20, 2010....Yes, long ways away, but I'm just so excited hehehe
