Baghdad Bride

Recommended Posts

The Knot has a pretty good one that they give you when you create an account. Of course it's going to have everything on the list that a bride who has a year to do it all but it gets the basics in there and you can cross out the ones you don't need.


Welcome to the forum! I am sure your wedding is going to be fantastic - and it'll be crazy doing it in a month but lots of fun!

Here's your first list:


1. Book a photographer/videographer or both. Find a couple people who are both available on your date and in your price range and then pick whoever's portfolio you like more.


2. Go try on dresses and figure out what kind you want to buy (sounds like you've started this already)


3. If you think it will be helpful for guests create a website - either free or one where you pay - due to the short timeframe try and find one that allows guests to RSVP online! Skip the extras and just get the basics up there!


4. Get menus from your venue and pick your food/drinks asap.

First of all, Hi! and welcome to the forum! Secondly, it might help if you hire a Wedding Coordinator in the place in which you're getting married. Since you don't have alot of time, and you don't know the local vendors, someone there might be able to help. This way you should be able to just tell that person what you want, and have them do the stressing for you :)

You can also try, this website Real Simple Weddings Planner | Celebrations : RealSimple.com and pick up the Real Simple Wedding magazine, it has alot of helpful information. And lots and lots of lists! :)

Please let us know if you need anything else....and just breathe, your wedding will be beautiful and perfect!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
