Our Disney Engagement!


Recommended Posts

I love reading everyone's engagement stories on this topic so I had to share mine!

 

Here's my FI's point of view from our website:

"From the start my engagement plans seemed like a disaster! They messed up the ring to the point where I only got it a week before we left, even though I had ordered it six months before. I was freaking out days before I knew I was gong to ask, and to make it worse our flight was delayed and we sat in the airport all day, and I struggled hard from being so nervous! (My parents and sister will concur).

The morning I was going to ask I was in a panic and freaking out. From trying to figure out the exact moment when I'd ask her, to trying to figure out how someone was just gonna put it into my pocket while we were walking hand in hand. In the end, it all worked out, and even though there were a ton of people around when it happened, I wouldnt have it any other way...Im pretty sure she enjoyed it also, because she once told me that if I asked in a crappy way that she would say no and make me do it again another day."

My turn!

I'm a total Disney freak, and Princess Belle is my absolute favorite--I own dolls, figurines, suitcases, shirts, everything I can get on with her face on it!  When we visited Disney World, the ONLY thing I wanted to do was see Belle's and Beast's castle, so I dragged everyone there as soon as we got the the Magic Kingdom. Of course, I wanted our pictures taken in front of the stained glass window. As soon as Corey and I posed, his entire family was holding a camera or cell phone in their hand, and I wondered "Why does everyone want to take this picture?" He turned to me and said "Do you want to start this vacation right?" And my heart started to race. I yelled "Are you messing with me?!" a little louder than was perhaps necessary, but sure enough, he plopped down on one knee and popped the question! Everyone else passing by the window froze and watched until I said yes, and then started cheering. It was truly magical!

To say I was SHOCKED is an understatement!

 

Of course, a cast member ran up right away with our "Just Engaged" buttons ready to go, and right away, they swept us and our entire family straight over to Story Time with Belle, where we got to go straight to the front for her to give us her congratulations:

(As a five year old at heart, this was amazing!)

 

Even though I was still in shock, was ready to start milking this for all it was worth--I asked the cast member who brought us our buttons veeeeery nicely if there was any way we could have dinner at the Be Our Guest restaurant (you have to make reservations EIGHT MONTHS in advance to get in for dinner....we didn't even know we were going 8 months prior!), and sure enough, they got us a reservation for 7 pm!

(The Grey Stuff really is delicious!)

 

 

For the rest of the week, cast members were throwing fast passes at us (we even got to go straight to the front of the line on Splash Mountain to make sure we made our dinner reservation on time!) and everyone we encountered told us congratulations.  I really got to feel like a princess!  Not to brag, but I think I picked myself a good one :)

Same here!  I was researching Disney weddings and looking at the packages and the prices, and at first I was like "Oh, that's not too bad!" .....until I realized I was looking at the one that JUST included the bride and the groom  :blink:  CRAZY expensive!  I think we're going to go back for our first anniversary :) My best friend just got back from vacation and brought us back wedding ears that I'm going to bring with me so we have a little Disney magic!

    • What are you doing for your wedding's road signs? so that your visitors will know where to turn to enter the area. Any pictures? I had created some road signs with a nearby signage business. However, I want to create 2 additional signs. Please provide images so that I may alter my design.
    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
