Hi...I'm in Orlando with my kids and we went to Epcot today. I really do try to turn off my brain when I go on a vacation (which is definitely not enough) with the family. But I'm always looking around at my surroundings imagining how I can incorporate what I'm enjoying into my events. Everywhere we walked I would say ohhhhh I could do that for this party, o...

    How can Disney NOT inspire you?! I’ve been inspired so much that I’m getting married AT Disneyland! :-D

  2. Mindy Weiss reply

    I agree. I have never planned a wedding at Disney (yet) but you sure don’t have to worry about the magic you would feel while you walk down the aisle. Disney reminds everyone of memories as a child and provides an instant theme…They had this poster in one of the shops today called “Disney Kisses” all their characters who have fallen in love,,,corny but so cute.

  3. Nikanne reply

    I just watched a special on the WE Channel regarding the fabulous weddings organized at Disney. They really want to make you feel like a princess. What I appreciated was that they scheduled the weddings in a way that one bride will never bump into another bride on their wedding thay. That’s very considerate of Disney. Mindy, I am so glad that you are able to balance your business life from your personal life with your family. That’s true bliss!

  4. Sydnee reply

    Hi min! I’m glad you are having a fun vacation – I wish I was there! Thanks for looking for inspiration for my wedding! I wish I could get married at Disneyland but I’m glad you may have some Disney inspiration at the wedding :). Those flower pods would look great in the fountain and that Kisses poster sounds so cool.
    Hope you have fun on the rest of the trip.
    Thanks for always keeping us updated with great ideas!

  1. Gale reply

    I knew about the blog but never your website. Great products! Three items I like; charmed life bracelet, luggage tags & bride apron.

  2. Nikanne reply

    Mindy,

    You are such a generous person. That’s why you have so many fans out there. I keep my Mindy Weiss wedding planner with me all the time. When I saw it for the first time, I feel in love with it because of the baby blue color which is very close to my wedding color, tiffany blue. I read your blog every morning and document any piece of information that may be helpful for my wedding.

    In regards to your fabulous collection, I love everything! You’ve really thought about the needs of the bride. Thank you! Therefore, my top 3 selections are…
    -The Wish Book/Guest Book set. I believe this is a precious way to have everyone sign their name as well as leave a personal note to the bride and groom. Only the guru herself thought of that!
    -The Response Card organizer is a genius! I would love to have that too especially when I need to follow up on guests that still haven’t responded yet.
    -And the Happily Ever After photo albums. What a great way to display the most important day of our lives by presenting it in a Mindy Weiss design.

    I hope I’m one of the winners!

    Again, thank you for this great opportunity.

  3. Allison Willis reply

    Mindy,
    I would love to have your wish/guest book. I think it’s a genius way to have your guest sign in rather than the usual just print your name on the long line; guest can actually write a comment/wish/good luck and not have to worry about other people ready it. The RSVP organizer “Delivered with Love” such a simple idea that looks great out on the desk. Emergency Bridal Kit – what girl doesn’t want one plus every bride should have one.
    Enjoy Orlando – sorry about the rain today but as i type this it seems to be clearing up.

    Mindy,
    I think it is so awesome that you’re having a contest. I love reading your blog and all the great ideas you have for weddings. You have provided me with a great deal of information as I plan my own wedding. The three items that I have had my eye and think would be great are the “Happily Ever After Set of 3 Albums”, “Love is in the air Bride Rolling bag” and your awesome “Wedding organizer planner”. I hope that you get a lot of response for your contest. Thanks again, Sarah Smith

  8. Jaye reply

    Hi Mindy!

    I am OBSESSED with your product line! Before you even had your e-store I would buy your products as gifts for my friends from shopintuition.com. Now that I’m getting married and can actually use your stuff for myself, I can’t believe you are giving products away!!!!
    If I had to choose, the 3 things I would want are:

    1. The Bridal Emergency Kit
    2. With Love From… Guest Book
    3. The Happily Ever After Photo Albums

    I hope I win! Thanks for all your great blog postings.

    – Jaye

  9. Meredith K reply

    Hi Mindy,

    Great idea! Your blog is so fun and sweet, and it helps me stay excited for the big day without letting the stress take over. =)

    I think these items are fabulous (especially for an organizer like me!):

    1. “Two Become One” Double Wick Sweet Love Scented Candle
    2. “Sometimes Brides Forget” Notebook with Wedding Schedule
    3. “The Ultimate Wedding Organizer” Planner Book with 25 Sections

    Have fun in Florida!

  10. Tosha reply

    Thanks Mindy for such a great blog. I check it every day! You offer a great perspective and great tips. (I especially loved the thoughts on finding a dress for full-size brides. What a great find!) The top three items I’d like from your e-store are: 1) “With love,” wish book and guest book; 2) your ultimate wedding book organizer, of course; and 3) your beautiful “with this ring” ring pillow. But that was no easy selection! Thanks, Mindy!

  11. Junage reply

    I would love Hollywood tape (any variety), Sole mates, and the Bridal Emergency Kit!

    Oh, a girl can dream! Can I ask for your wedding coordination services as one of the three?! :)

    I just got engaged last week and am feeling a little overwhelmed. My father died recently and we always spoke about him walking me down the aisle, so it’s bittersweet! I’m trying to find creative ceremony and reception ideas to avoid the father/daughter dance and the “aisle” but somehow incorporate his memory.

    So my three would be: The wedding planner, the unity candle to remember my dad, and the “keep it together” tote.

    Thanks for all of your great ideas and continuing inspiration!

    P.S. Love your blog and book!

  3. Nikanne reply

    Oh my word! Everyone that knows me, knows how much of a cake fan I am. The cake will be one of the highlights on my wedding day. This picture could be my biggest nightmare. But I guess I need to focus on the good things and just let go. I’ve been told by many friends to do that. I can be very controlling on every aspect of the planning process. I know I need to accept what comes our way and just move on. Hopefully, I can make it happen.

    This is the greatest picture ever!!!! AMAZING! What a great photographer to capture those little, well I guess not so little, moments.
