Mark Your Calendars

For more than 10 years now I have been dreaming about having "my wedding." I know, I know, I've been married for (almost) 13 lucky years. And I know I couldn't be luckier. But as most of you are aware, we were married at the courthouse. Perfectly fitting for the people we were then. I'm so glad I made that choice. But shortly thereafter I started a manilla file entitled "Dream Wedding." I've thrown that file out several times (which also means it was created again and again).

I have had this very specific wedding in mind. It's a thought I clearly cannot shake. And it's so cliché! I want a Disney wedding -- not the Cinderella's castle wedding that readily comes to mind. No pumpkin coach here. But to be married in the French Pavilion in Epcot...the little garden near the canal...a gorgeous brunch at the Bistro de Paris with that fabulous 3 piece electric band, Bella Fortuna, that used to play in the Italy pavilion in Baroque costume. I even have a very cheesy song picked out from the Millennium Celebration album (which I will leave you to guess as it is far too self deprecating to actually admit which one it is). This is my dream, my recurring dream. I've only really shared it with two people until now. E - I love you for not laughing at my insanity.

The thing is, I found out that I could actually do it. It's for real - they really allow it and they even have a price for it (naturally - I should have realized that anything and everything at Disney can be arranged for a price). It could be doable for our 20th! I've always imagined that I'd have to haggle with some horribly made-up, 50-something, toothy wedding planner at Disney to make my dream come true. Apparently it would be much easier than that, in true Disney fashion. 

So I'm putting it out there for the universe (and you) to know. I'm planning for this as an actuality. Mark your calendars for May 1, 2015. We'll be celebrating our anniversary with my fantasy Disney wedding. You're certainly welcome to come. I'm pretty sure Mickey and Minnie will make an appearance. Oh, and if you too have the wild hare to do something this crazy, check out this fabulous Disney wedding planning site. I know I'll be back. (and back, and back....)
