          Done-
          Ordered invites (should have them the first week in may)
          Bought dress and TTD Dress
          Reserved Location
          Hired a DJ
          Hired a Photographer
          Picked colors


          I have NO idea how many people will be there so I can't to OOT bags yet. My BM's can't get together until June to do dress shopping. So I made my RSVP June 15th so Hopefully by then I will have a semi final head count and the BM dresses done. We will see.

              When are you doing that? Remember you will need about a month or two for alterations

                  I meant to ask you... how did finding a new resort go? I haven't seen a thread on it. Did you find a new one?

                      Hello fellow September brides!

                      This is what I have so far:
                      Location
                      My dress and shoes
                      Photographer
                      Videographer
                      STD's have been sent
                      Starting on invitations this weekend
                      Some centerpieces
                      Hundreds of starfish (besides using them for invitations, no clue what else I'm doing with them!)
                      OOT bags plus some fillers (shell bottle openers, personalized margarita mixes, personalized mints, travel-sized sunblocks)
                      flower clip for hair
                      Confirmed appt for hair, nails, and makeup at spa
                      Raffia fans for ceremony plus tags that I'm adding to them

                      Still Need:
                      Get fitted for a customized bra (I haven't been able to find one that will work w/ my size and dress style)
                      Order personalized stamps
                      Look for padded envelopes for invitations
                      Look for DJ (I'm not even sure if I can bring an outside DJ) and finalize song choices
                      Find bridesmaid's dresses/groomsmen outfits and gifts
                      Look for FI's suit
                      Buy more OOT bag fillers (not sure what else to get)
                      Gifts for parents
                      Finalize flower choices/centerpieces
                      Decide on hair/makeup
                      Decide on cake style
                      Dress alterations
                      Create slideshow for reception
                      Finalize itinerary/excursions

                      OK, I'm sure I'm missing a lot more but I began to stress myself out so I'm going to stop typing now!
