Not sure if I mentioned this before but anyways Alan and I are trying desperately to organise a Vow Renewal in September on our 20th Wedding Anniversary in Orlando Florida. The Economy this year is definately trying to put a kiboosh on it. As firstly it means no bonus from work (in the region of £1,800) and also the dollar has sunk from $2 to the £1 (when we first thought it might be a good idea!) to $1.35 to the £1. As you can see a HUGE difference. So our plans to rent a room at Animal Kingdom Lodge went down the pan and we are trying to organise to hold it at Give Kids The World Village but being so far away it is difficult not like you can take a planning trip.
But in the meanwhile I am still trying to work on what to wear and to decide on a theme and favours for our guests. After tossing about all sorts of different things finally came up with the one here. Its easy to work with and reflects love marriage and disney!
The first picture is on the cover of my planning scrapbook/ideas book.
Now for the Guest favours. I had planned on all things wild animals even so far as getting my friend Carol in FL to pop to her local Joannes and buying up lots of papers in the animal theme while they were only 6 sheets for a $ but the change of venue means that they are to be stored for a later project. Working on the "do it beautifully but cheaply" theory I remembered that my DSIL had given me a roll of "Cinderella" blue fabric. So after finally getting the logo I started working on the gifts - so for a sneak teaser see below. No I am not saying what it will be just that I have finally started stitching. One down, and with only 6 months till I have to be done, loads to go :O)
