#HappilyEverArvanitis: Vendors

Phew - it's been a whirlwind of the last two months. Needless to say, the last thing I've wanted to do, or had the brain capacity for, is putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard?) to recap our wedding. If you've been following along on Instagram, you've seen little snippets here and there of our big day. For now, I wanted to take the time to thank and review our vendors that made the day so very extra magical.

Under The Sea

Last weekend I was surprised by my Future Mother-In-Law and some of my best friends with an Under the Sea themed Kitchen Tea (a South Africanism, that is otherwise known as a Bridal Shower here!) Unbeknownst to me, my FMIL (Future Mother-In-Law), my Maid of Honor, and my Future Hubby all banded together to invite as many of my friends as possible to come celebrate! This is no easy task, as my circle of friends is quite tiny. Read on to see more details about this day!

Wedding Planning & Visiting Pandora

This seems to happen quite often where I disappear where my posts become inconsistent for a little bit - super sorry about that! I started a new job at the end of May so much of my time and energy have been eaten up by gaining my sea legs (or land legs if you want to stick to the Disney universe 😛

I have been wanting to recap our June trip for sometime so here it goes!

Riff-raff, Street Rat

sigh Such an iconic scene in Aladdin, though only a minute long. Hands up if you remember Aladdin talking about living in a palace to Abu!

Taking count again – hands up if you love incorporating Disney elements into your outfits!

I'm using this post as an opportunity to announce that I've started a new category on the blog called "#DisneyStyle" – this is where you'll find my normal outfits with Disney elements as well as our Disneybounding, and any other pieces that may fall into this category (like my Disney Parks Makeup post!)

Fave Disney Parks Makeup

I LOVE taking pictures at Disney Parks – whether this is Disneyland or Walt Disney World. There's something magical about the candids and the posed. And in all these pictures, who doesn't want to look their best?

The one problem with this though, at least with my last couple trips, is the constant fight of "I love the outfit/makeup/hair" and "It's humid enough to make even my pin straight hair frizz." 

I have a naturally combination complexion (oily t-zone, relatively normal skin elsewhere) so it's hard to control, especially when it's extraordinarily humid and hot. So today, I've rounded up my favorite beauty products for the Disney Parks!

#HappilyEverArvanitis – Planning

Let's get down to business!

... to defeat the Huns!

Totally joking. But you better get used to these Disney themes for a while. (And by a while, I mean forever.)

What I really wanted to talk about today is how we got started planning our Disney wedding. Wedding planning is already difficult enough as it is, but a Disney wedding with limited information on the website? Where do you go? Who do you ask? Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me?

Hakuna Matata

It's been almost two weeks now and I'm still not over my Disney hangover. How do you really get past having Mickey shaped everything and perfect customer service all the time? Not to mention, the amazing scents all over Disney Parks and resorts. Sure beats the trash and smell of gasoline here in NYC!

This trip was the first one in a year that we haven't had to do something. 

Well, I'm happy to say that this trip, Nicholas and I took Timon and Pumbaa's philospophy to the maximum level.
