Steph - Aug 2014

Recommended Posts

Hey Hey Hey!

 

My name is Stephanie and I currently have tentative date of Aug 31, 2014. I was looking towards Hawaii but now I'm leaning more towards Mexico. I hope to have our location pinned down by the end of March (So, next week)

 

Backgroud: My FI and I met when I was in 6th grade, him in 7th. I was instantly head over heels in love with him but was either too scared to tell him, he had a girlfriend or the timing just wasn't right. We were best friends and totally inseperable from ages 12/13 until ages 21/22 when he left for the Marines. I went on and got married as did he. Things happen for a reason though because in June 2010 his wife suddenly left him, with no warning. In July 2010 I finally left my marraige to an abusive alcoholic. In August 2010 my FI's father passed away. I received the call from a mutal friend and went to the wake. I walked in and the world stopped, fireworks were going off and there were stars in my eye's. I saw my FI for the first time in 10 years and once again it was love at first sight. Thankfully for me, this time he felt it too. We have literally be inseperable since that day in Aug, 2010. He has been in Afghanistan the past year and leaves again shortly to go back for another year.

 

I have 2 children from my previous marraige. Last week we were in California in Disneyland when he surprised me with a proposal in front of a fountain with my children there. One of the Disney photopass photographers was able to capture the entire proposal.

 

Well, there's my not so brief introduction.

Congratulations, and welcome to BDW!!!! Disneyland is the best place to get married :) You will find this website so helpful in planning and narrowing down your destination and hotel. I'm fairly new on here myself, but I can't tell you how valuable the info on here is for your planning. Because of BDW we've been able to narrow down the hotel, create a budget, and compiled lists of local vendors who will help us have our dream wedding at half the cost of a wedding in the states :) Now we just need to pick a date, lol.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
