      Ok, you girls are all doing so good!! Here’s my list (I know I'm forgetting things)

      What I have done:
      Trip Booked
      Boarding Passes sent out
      Wedding website up and running
      My dress bought
      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
      Borrowing veil from friend (got my borrowed!)
      Bachelorette plans (renting a house on a lake in Traverse City for the weekend!)

      Need to do:

      Register at BBB, Macy’s and possibly Target
      Bridesmaid dresses (this weekend we are finishing shopping and will finalize)
      Men’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 won’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
      Finalize all details with the W/C at the resort.

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.

              The maraca pens were really cute but the flip flop playing cards are kinda tiny. I think they'd be hard to actually play with.

                -supplies for Thank you cards

                Things I still have to do:

                -order my dress & flower girl dress (end of April)
                -pants for FI & GM
                -decide on last BM dress
                -make ring bearer seashell

                -passports for our kids
                -sand ceremony
                -decide on music
                -also waiting for people to book!!!

                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.

                  Wow you got a lot done. I see you bought the fabric for the bm dresses, are you making them yourself?

                    Yes Maraca pens were cute. I got the flip flop note pad..didn't get playing cards as I heard they were small...I may buy some regular though.
