    I thought it might be fun to start a thread for Sandals brides getting married over the spring and summer months. I know there's a group of us getting married in May, and a few in June and beyond. Where is everyone with their planning?

    I for one finally feel like everything is coming together, and I can relax - a little. Everything on the Sandals side of things is under control. I actually haven't emailed my WC with a question in almost 2 weeks!

    I thought my dress was under control, but tried it on this weekend and discovered that it needs to be taken in, so I have to take a half day off work this Friday to go to David's Bridal for another fitting. Tip for every bride - definitely try on your dress 6-8 weeks before the wedding so alterations can be made if necessary.

    We picked up our wedding bands yesterday, and it's taking everything I have to not wear it all the time - I'm trying to be good. FI's ring fits, but is snug. I'm worried that it won't fit in Jamaica, so he'll be trying it on periodically over the next couple weeks to decide of he needs it sized up. Fingers crossed that he was just having a "fat finger " day - haha!

      My WC called me friday and I missed her call. When I called her back she must have been on the other line or something. Everything does seem to be coming together. I do kinda wish I had a couple of more months so I could take off a few more pounds. It took me longer than it should have to get motivated so it will be after the wedding before I get where I really want to be. This is ok though cause I have really been taking the weight off quickly in the last 7-8 weeks. I would also liked to have more time so I could spend more money!!! LOL Since the new year time has just flown by. Up until that point it seemed like May would never come!

        I'm trying to tie up all of my loose ends now. I still need to get my viel, shoes, wedding jewelry and my FI still needs to get a suit!

        On the Sandals side, we're making our final payment for the entire group today! I still need to send the WC our final selections this week (photography, decor, choosing dates & times for our free massage and mani/pedi, and other things that come with our wedding package.)

        I've started packing all the OOT bag items, favors, etc. All I have to do now is buy all my cute honeymoon clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc.! I'm also preparing to mail out my passport invitation booklets (I know---waaayyyy late!) and final wedding update for the guests. Time is flying, but everything is coming together slowly but surely!

          Are you ladies having your legal wedding ceremony in Jamaica, or are you getting legally married beforehand?

              I'm 99.9% percent sure that we are having a legal ceremony there as well. Part of me wants to get married legally at home first for purely selfish reasons - so that I can start the name change process ASAP after we return from Jamaica and not have to wait 3 months! Somehow, I don't think that's a reason that will make FI run to the courthouse with me - haha!

                I too am having my legal ceremony in Jamica. I had thought about having the legal ceremony here just for my close family but then thought the point of getting married in a beautiful place would be lost!

                    Hi! I'm somewhat of a "newbie" to the forum. We're getting married on August 12 at SGOR! :)
