    Glad to hear you have a little break from school!!
    my list...
    Things still need to be done
    - download prelude music
    -BM flip flops (matching)
    -GM Gift (wedding attir)
    - find Cat sitter
    -use teeth whitener March 26th
    -find/order romper or something for wedding day wear for hair & make up
    -print scavenger hunt list for pictures
    -burn cd’s for ceremony
    -wedding games for cocktail hour
    -Print e-mails from Carolina.
    -Print guest list with arrival time
    -Make list for Dj for MUST HAVE songs
    -write thank you letters for parents, and FI
    -go through summer clothes, see what needs to be bought.
    -Print and bring hair style pic
    ( If TO ppl come things need to be done: Buy mugs, make centerpiece ,buy and make hang over kits label fans for girls, label shot glass for men......) (I'm still waiting to see if ppl are coming, ugh!!)
    Print hair style
    Pick dinner menu

    I know it looks small... but I also made a goal to do my spring cleaning before I go. (OOOPS), also pack for the actual vacation.
    OMG Tracy, we have similar things outstanding.
    I have to:
    - find hairstyle pics
    - want to have my hair highlighted before I go too
    - burn cd of ceremony music and another cd of beach party songs that I would like in case the DJ doesn't have them
    - pay my TA/Wedding Planner here. She is on vacation so I haven't seen her
    - Take out some US funds and get tip envelopes or payment envelopes ready
    - You mention you are choosing the menu... I wanted to design a menu but thought we had to wait until we get there to choose the food. have you heard differently?
    - finish name tags on favour boxes
    - wrap the wedding party gifts. we organized a dinner here at home this weekend so we won't have to cart steins, etc. there. I bought the girls sea glass jewelery for the wedding day and the guys are getting steins and zippo lighter sets (2 smoke). The ring bearer is getting a t-shirt and a dog tag necklace with his name and our wedding date on it
    - finish making t-shirts for the groomsmen (they are going deep sea fishing and I am making t-shirts)
    - purchase tank tops for the girls (I am ironing on the rhinestone bridesmaid decals)
    - go through summer clothes and decide what to bring and what I need besides and bathing suit
    - find a veil! My new mom in law wants to buy it. I might get a short one but not sure because I don't even know what I am doing with my hair

    And the list goes on and on!!! Am in the middle of doing a welcome book, seating chart and a Program! We don't think we are doing the sand ceremony. Might do a seashell ceremony where the guests get a shell to make a wish for us. We shall see. Are you doing the sand ceremony?

    Talk to you later!!!

      Wow! those are great lists -- I love lists though.

      Carribbeanlover - what is a romper? And I am going the teeth whitening also -- I wasn't sure when to do it though...what kind are you doing? Or are you going somewhere to get it done?
      Are your flight times 100% determined? Ours aren't -- so that is holding me up a bit, we have FI's family who live in Quebec flying out of Toronto with us, and as of now we have a 6:20am flight time -- sooo we'll have to figure out what we're doing the night before.

      Also -- how are you doing the programs? I want to do that, but I thought that some information (i.e. beach party time - and menu) weren't to be known until we get there. I would love to hear what you're doing!! :)

        For the Beach Party reception, what's the per person cost and what's included? I'm thinking about doing that for a welcome party.

        Thanks!

            It's 9/person for 3 hours I believe. The cost is for the bartender to be there...and Carolina says it includes decoration of the area and tables/chairs

                Does that include food and drinks too?

                  It does not include food -- most of us are having the beach party after the reception where we will have food.

                  The 9/person does include drinks (and the bartender).

                    Okay cool, is there a "light fare" option? Is the beach party near any restaurants in case guests get hungry?

                      We are thinking the beach, depending on whether it is too windy or not we would then move to the gazebo; although photos I have seen of this, it looks like guests are far back... most likely we will be on the beach... my colors are spa blue (turquoise) and tan. I have a hair apt at noon, maybe Ill see you at the spa on that day- we can toast with a glass of champagne... do you still have alot to plan out?
