    I started making a list last night of things I still have left to do, and it's over 1 page and I'm sure I forgot stuff.

    So far I have:
    Sent out STDs (end of October)
    Booked Iberostar Paraiso Lindo for wedding
    Paid deposit for our trip
    Booked photographer (Citlalli Rico)
    My dress (I also am working on the getting thinner part before I have to get it altered)
    BM dresses, and one extra to be made into a flower girl dress.
    FI's suit
    Starfish tealight holders (found at Linen's n things) and small tealight holders for centerpieces (I just hope I have enough since I don't know how many tables we will actually have)
    Invitations (still working on those)
    Pail for flower girl, but need to decorate it
    Part of BM gifts (their dresses, beach bags, photo album and frame)
    Starfish for bouquet
    Shoes (flip-flops)
    Veil (although not sure I'm wearing it)
    Ordered my headpiece, but haven't received it yet
    Bought tropical chapstick for OOT bags
    Ordered FI and the dads' ties
    Registered at Pottery Barn and Linens n' Things so far

    Still need to:
    Get jewelry
    Buy rest of BM gifts and get GM gifts
    Order OOT bags and stuff to go in them
    Decide on GM attire
    Get wedding bands
    Get FI's dress shirt
    Finish invitations and mail them
    Get sand ceremony vases and sand
    Decide on wedding music
    Decide what we will do for guestbook
    Get engagement photos done??
    Make or order programs
    Order parasols, fans and bubbles for ceremony

      I feel a little better now. I did spend my weekend making lists of things I have to do still and from your lists I can add a few more things to it. And i'm going out May 3rd to look for BM dresses, and i'm not coming home until I find one. he he.

        Hi Ladies!

        I am just seeing this thread! Aren't you all getting excited!
        We had a wedding party dinner at our house this past Saturday and got a lot of questions answered. We just decided last week to ask one more couple to be in the wedding. We are having dinner with them this weekend so we'll ask them then.

        SO far I have the following:

        Date Reserved at hotel
        Deposit on trip
        My dress & Flip flops
        Flowergirl dress & Flip flops
        Bridesmaids dresses & flip flops
        SOME OOT bag stuff
        >travel candles, playing cards, margarita mixes, first aid kits (working on these - FMIL is supposed to be sending me the tylenol and chaser for them)
        Manicure sets for BM's
        Wedding programs - constantly revising, but I have the stuff to make them
        Cake topper
        Cake server
        flowers for hair - need to assemble
        tissues for Tears of Joy packets
        Ringbearer ring holder (FMIL has it - I haven't seen it yet) - it's a light blue mini velvet sombrero
        Picked out invitations
        Bride tanktop
        MOH tank top


        Still have to get
        Wedding jewlery - including bands for both of us!
        Grooms attire
        Gromsmen attire
        King of the Ring attire
        Veil
        Sash for flowergirl dress
        2nd BM's dress
        OOT bags
        Rest of OOT bag stuff
        BM tanktop
        Flowergirl tank top
        Need to register

        We also still need to decide if we are doing an AHR. I really want one, but FI isn't sure.

        That's all I can think of right now! - omg - that's enough!

          chaser is a really good idea for first aid kits. where did you get your MOH tank and bride tank from?

            I am making them! I bought the rhinestone iron-ons on-line from Wedding Favors - Wedding Party Favors - Favor Ideas and Decoratons

            I just bought some plain tanks. I haven't ironed them on yet ~ hopefully they work out! I got the iron ons that say "Bride" - "Just Married" - "Bridesmaid" - "Maid of Honor" and "Flowergirl".

                Awesome, can you let us know how they work? I wanted to buy my ladies these tanks but they are so expensive. This is a great alternative.

                    Ok I'm a bum. I have six months to go and I have bought my dress and a couple of things for my OOT bags and ummmm that's it. I know what I want for things but I haven't actually bought much. I wanted to be done by July but the rate I'm going that's when I'll start. I can't believe how organized everyone is, some of the girls getting married in 2009 have way more done than I do. At least I'm not stressed about anything, I'll look at it that way and feel better about it!

                      Knowing what you want to get is a very good start.
