Some OOT gifts bought (travel candles,totes,maraca pens,sticky notes)

Bridesmaids Beach bags bought for part of gift (paying for hairdos or

massage in Mexico their choice)

Have hairdo idea and bought kit with pics and instructions

Bachelorette plans (renting a house on a lake in Traverse City for the weekend!)

 

Need to do:

 

Register at BBB, Macyâ€s and possibly Target

Bridesmaid dresses (this weekend we are finishing shopping and will finalize)

Menâ€s attire (FI will be handling this but I will have to periodically bug him)

Need to get sandals for wearing with dress after ceremony on beach

More OOT items (aspirin,travel mugs, and whatever else my eyes spy )

Find AHR site and details (this wonâ€t be until March or April 2009 )

Get all items done for a legal wedding in Mexico (translation of BC I think??)

Flowers possibly getting silk ones for the wedding

We're getting married in a garden overlooking the ocean, so it will be very colorful with the green grass and the turqouise water. I'd like something that would contrast the green and the blue. So...I'm thinking of still going with a deep purple but having really bright colored bouquets with some orange in them. I think orange or a berry color would be really pretty against the blue and green but most of my girls wouldn't want to wear something that bright. So, I'm thinking of a more muted color with bright accents...

Have you picked your bridesmaids dresses yet?

OMG - I love those colors. Wow - they will be SO stunning together! Sounds beautiful!

How are the maraca pens? I am planning on ordering those and some of those tropical shirt notepads. Were they cute? I am also planning on getting flip flop playing cards.

We are waiting to order the OOT bag items until we know how many are coming for sure. We are also thinking about booking an excursion to Altos de Chavon for everyone, but we are looking into the cost of hiring vans for the day. As for the STD and the invites, we sent out the STD after getting engaged to give everyone about a years notice. Then I started making the invites so that when we booked and had a wedding date, we could send out the actual invites. I sent out the invites with all the wedding info, booking info & prices about a week after booking our trip.
