I just finished watching the show.  Disney is definitely a magical place to have a wedding.  You could tell the brides featured would spare no expense in their fairytale wedding.  I still can't believe people would spend $70,000 to make their  wedding dream come true.  I especially loved the last wedding featured.  The color scheme was beautiful and reminded me of my own wedding minus the major pricetag.  I thought the surprise renewed vows ceremony was touching.  This special gave you an inside look at some of the best restaurants and kitchens.  It was a nice end to a busy day!

I watched and loved every minute of it...until the 70K price!!  WOW! Someone has alot of disposable cash LOL  But it was beautiful, the cakes incredible and I too loved seeing Sunset Point at the Poly for the renewal service!!

Carol, thanks for the info you provided.  We have worshiped there and it was a lovely service.  We will keep it in mind for the future weddings (a possible 3 DDs at 70k each? UGH)

The lady Disney wedding planner (the one who stood outside the Wedding Pavillion) said the "average" wedding in the US costs $22,000 today, for which price at Disney you could accomodate, what did she say, like 100 guests.  Not all weddings cost that, however, and not all Disney weddings or receptions cost that.  Mary, who knows what weddings will cost when your daughters and our son are ready to walk the aisle?  Maybe the time to start saving up and training the kids to pay for as much of it as possible themselves is now? ;)  :dollar:

The food looked delicious all through the program, though.  The Cinderella's slipper dessert with chocolate teardrop also on the plate looked too good to eat!  The cake they created for the Alice in Wonderland tea party looked too good to eat, too!  Meanwhile, I think Jiko would be a fascinating dining experience (at Animal Kingdom Lodge) .

 LOL LOL  DH and I have an inside joke from the time it became apparent that females dominated the house.....It is called "The Convent" (What DH prays will happen.  You know, fathers and their protecting their daughters) and "Elopement" (Here's $1,000 kids! )  Between college and just raising children, weddings can break the bank if you let them!  LOL  But, the sun will still come out.  We just may not be able to afford the sunglasses! LOL  :coolgrin:

I enjoyed the show very much; watched it with my DD13 who isn't much of a romantic, but I saw her eyes twinkle a little bit.  We especially loved the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party--the cake was so cool!  It would be fun to just have that party with some girlfriends.

$70,000 would sure be a nice down payment on a house, wouldn't it?  I'd rather give that to my kids if I happened to have $70,000 laying around!  Was it my imagination, or did that groom already looked beat down by that bride?  She was obviously going to get her way no matter what!  I hope he's prepared to do that the rest of their lives!  ( Frankly, he looked about 15 to me and in no position to be getting married-but what do I know?! )  LOL

Just get on any major highway, and eventually it will dead-end in a Disney parking area large enough to have its own climate, populated by large nomadic families who have been trying to find their cars since the Carter administration.

It was a nice show, and fun to watch... $70,000?????  My twin girls better start planning on Marrying someone rich..... or like the Chesterfield county courthouse for a setting!

Was I the only one who noticed that Sandra P. called Cinderella's Royal Table,
           Cinderella's Round Table?

She also called the Polynesian's restaurant 'Ohana's.  It's just 'Ohana.  It's very hard for people not to think of it like an Irish restaurant name, I think!  Like it is O'Hana's  or something!  Which would make a great pub name, but doesn't mean "family" in Hawaiian!

I noticed a Polynesian CM that was in the Spirit of Aloha show--she was one of the CMs that greeted the couple who had the surprise 40th anniversary vow renewal.  Coincidentally ( or maybe not! ) she was the CM that led the guests in the Anniversary Dance.

I wonder if that is the same CM I posted pictures of who was entertaining the kids in the lobby of the Polynesian Resort the last time we checked in there?



See more pictures of her here.
