          Your to do list is just about the same as mind. I don't know much about the actual wedding day. I think my WC will contact me 3 weeks before. I've emailed her little questions every so often, but mostly I haven't talked to her about the ceremony. Everything I know about it I learned from brides who were married there before.

          I think you are right on track.

                  Here is my 3 months to go update. I realied I should have just titled this "June brides" because the title gets out of date within a month.

                  I'm surprised how many things I've repeated (guestbook, hairflower, booking photographer). I know if I planned again from the beginning I could do everything better, but it's cool that my stuff improves the more I learn. Planning the wedding has been a great learning experience.


                  Finished:
                  picked place
                  found TA
                  booked our travel
                  collected addresses
                  sent out save the dates
                  took engagement pictures
                  got dress, shoes, jewelery, veil
                  picked hairstyle
                  made website
                  made logo
                  designed & put together invitations
                  planned ceremony music- friend is currently recording it on keyboard
                  booked photographer & then booked another one :)
                  started on making cups for OOT bags
                  made postcards for OOT bags
                  bought thank you cards
                  made photo guestbook (and then made it again)
                  registered for stuff
                  made hairflower (although I'm working on a better one now)
                  made pre-wedding brochure for guests who have booked
                  ordered fans for guests to use during ceremony
                  most of organizing for group trip to Coba & Charter fishing trip is done
                  took care of my grandma's passport issues
                  bought a cheap, used camcorder to record ceremony & the rest of our vacation

                  OOT bags
                  sent out invitations
                  bought bags for flower petals, will buy the petals when we get there
                  made gift for grandma (photobook)
                  bought lipstick & lipstick sealer
                  spanish phrase list (still need to print)
                  cancun airport letter (still need to print)

                  To do:
                  his wedding band (I know where I'm getting it from I just need to know his size)
                  his outfit for wedding
                  write vows

                  decide on eye makeup & nail polish


                  Stuff I’m not doing:
                  Wedding party
                  Decorations (other than what the hotel does for our package)
