    I thought we were pretty much all done organising everything in may last year when we booked our wedding through our travel agent. They told us everything would be arranged (flowers, restaurant etc) on arrival in resort. Well i was pretty laid back until i found this site a few months ago and found out most people decide and book things beforehand. Since then my fiancee says i've become obsessed lol!!

      Like you guys, it's all the small stuff so as hard as it is to think...it will all come together!! :)

        You know what, I think I'm gonna invite my girlfriends to a "HELP YOLANDA GET HER STUFF TOGETHER" Assembly Party.
        I get a funny feeling that I'd be the only one there!!!
        I may have to disguise this as a "LETS HAVE SOME DRINKS" Party just to lure them in.

        Haha... that's a great idea. I'm thinking of doing the same! So, so wish my family lived close by... my Grandma is so artistic and loves different projects... maybe I'll have to outsource my overlays to her. lol...

        I'm right there with you Yolanda! I'm getting married the same day! I actually do have almost everything together... but that doesn't help the stress level! I'm stressed that I'm done with everything! I feel like I forgot someting, or I think I'm finished but I'm not and I won't notice until the day before we leave. Oh I'm so dramatic!!!
        Really my to-do list:
        Assemble wedding binder to take with and stay organized
        Put together wedding music on CDs and label
        Pack 2nd OOT bag suitcase (so much crap!)
        We need to host a "bridal party party" in which we will give everyone their gifts
        I need to find a thick bridal bag to carry my dress in
        Buy a signature picture frame for guests to sign
        Order cake take out boxes!!!!
        E-mail the resort with our room selection & dinner resos.

            I'm going to report back if guests still have a good time if the bride is a lazy shlump and didn't do anything for them. Honestly, I had a huge to do list. Somewhere in a year's time span, most have been crossed off. Not because I did them- but because I decided not to or simply ran out of time and didn't have much of a choice.

            I wouldn't worry too much girls. I'm sure most guests don't have too high of expectations for all the little goodies. They are there to witness a beautiful wedding and have a good time as well.
            Happily married since 2008

              Rachel, can you send me some of your chill-ness? You said the other day, you are the most chill bride, and I totally agree. I am too much of a control freak and I can't beleive I am as behind as I am!

                Oh, you have no idea! My Bridezilla transformation came on full force today! I ordered five sets of napkin rings (with six napkin rings per set). They're silver and I thought they would look great for my beach reception... well the UPS man arrived today and after paying $64 in brokerage fees I opened the box and there were 5 napkin rings in total... not the 30 from the 5 sets of 6 that there were supposed to be.
                After emailing the company I was told sorry for the mistake but they were now out of stock... bridezilla came out for the first time in full force... needless to say the remaining 25 napkin rings are being sent to me as we speak. lol....
