    Oh my, only 119 days left for me! So, I'll go ahead and list a couple of things Ive done and have left to do:

    Whats Done?:
    Got the ring and my band
    Wedding website
    Resort picked
    Vacation booked and 1/2 paid for
    Airfare paid for
    STD's sent out
    Bought bridesmaids gifts
    FI's attire is bought
    OOT bags bought and stuff for them (thanks to Shelley!)
    Summer clothes for FI and I have been purchased
    Reserved boarding for the boys (my doggies)


    What do I have in progress?:
    Still trying to decide on a photography package
    Still waiting on resort to finalize menu options
    Still looking for FI's wedding band
    Invites are in the making
    Welcome letter/booklet in the making
    FI working on music selections
    Still deciding on wedding setup (Its kind of hard planning at a brand spankin new resort and not being able to see pics of anything!)

    What do I still need to start/do?:
    Still deciding if I want to do menus
    Attempt to make barefoot sandals
    Find shoes for the reception
    Find or create a guest book
    Get sand ceremony kit
    Register!
    Find a reliable fish babysitter
    Decide on ceremony programs
    Find me some jewlery
    Find cute thank you cards
    Find a cake topper
    Get enough guts and do a million situps to do a BD shoot before June!

    and last but not least .... I havent bought a dress yet!!! I know, what in the world am I thinking. That is on my to-do list by the end of this month! I am not too big on dresses (thats the tomboy in me) Is this stressing me out ... actually its not, surprisingly. I am actually going to try on a few more on Saturday. I found one I like at Davids Bridal, lol, but dont ask me why I didnt buy it! If tomorrow's search doesnt go too good, I will defitenly be getting the one at DB.

    Damn, looking at this list, I realize how much I still need to get done! Now only if I can just get off this freakin forum (too many great ideas!) Like I said earlier, I am using you August ladies as my motivation!

      Are any of you ladies getting married legally before the DW? If so, when? We are currently thinking of doing it 7.11.08. Do you think that's too early

      yep we are, and we are doing it on 7-12-08. i dont think its too early. our friend is a minister and jose's parents are going to fly out to be here for it. i think i posted earlier in this thread our plans -- we're doing a rooftop sunset ceremony for our legal wedding and our friend will be the officiant and sign the license. we felt it was more personal than going to city hall. i am not knocking going to city hall to do it, but for me personally, it wasnt an option, i felt it was too impersonal for me to get legally married by someone we dont know and will never see again.

        Maura you need to stop now. Really. You're making the rest of us look bad!

        That being said, I've just confirmed our welcome cocktail hour and dinner arrangements, booked our DJ and have a trip down to finalize everything else in Mid-May. Woohoo!
