      Well, you're ahead of me!! I haven't really done ANYTHING! I've booked our stay, and sent out the save the dates and TA info...but thats it! So I know how you feel! We still haven't really made a decision where we're even having the ceremony and...uggh, I'm starting to frazzle just thinking about EVERYTHING I still have to do!! At least you have a dress!! Ha!

      Oh, and we have the same wedding day!! Good luck to us!!

              Hi ladies!

              I am getting married 10-09-08... and i don't feel like i have done much at all!

              I have a dress... that i am not 100% certain i want to wear now! I have no shoes or accessories. We have a shirt for FI, but no pants <lol>. Nothing for his best man. My MOH has her dress.

              Our flights and resort and all that stuff are booked. That has been done for a while and i am SOOO relieved. I have also finished our wedding website, so now i can give that out to everyone who asks where we are going!

              Not inviting people (except for my MOH/best friend and her boyfriend and FI's best man/best friend and his wife) so not sending invites.

              still have A LOT of work to do, including (but not limited to!)
              Finalize dress
              Get accessories & shoes
              Get pants and shoes for the man!
              Figure out Best Man outfit
              Plan, buy and assemble stuff for OOT (should be fairly easy w/ so few people!)
              Gifts for MOH and BM

              find announcements and prepare them for mailing
              plan AHR (that is a whole other crisis!)
