Here is what I have done so far:
reserved the date -May 6th 2009
14 poeple booked
Booked our rooms and travel
We having the ceremony (at 6pm) in the gazebo, cocktail housr on the terrace and the reception on the beach also.
I've also ordered all of my favors. (i will ship them to the hotel a day or 2 before i go there)
I will make up OOT bags when i get there as well.
We got the wedding package that includes the photog- don't think we're getting a videographer.
we got the tech with the sound system for the ceremony and i think we're going to do the same for the reception as well. one bride said they just used the cd/ipod player from the room (but i don't want to be in charge of changing the songs- go i'm getting the tech.
Still need my passport (yikes!!!) and the rings, but otherwise i think we're pretty much set (i hope)
It is a really good idea though and can't wait to hear how you girls make out!! It would take alot of stress out of my packing!!
Also, We applied for our Passports on 01/17/09 and we got them Exactly one week later on 01/24/09 :-) So I wouldn't be too scared about getting them, But since you only have 3 months, I would get a move on that!! LOL It's very painless.
So far I have:
Booked the Wedding & Our rooms
Booking Flights tomorrow
got our Passports
Hired Cecilia Dumas as our Photographer
Hired Plumerias Wedding Flower Boutique for our Bouquets
Ordered most of the OOT contents and bags
Bought Rafia fans from a BDW member
Got my Dress
Ordered & Received BM's Dress (VS 7 in 1 Convertable/Sour Cherry)
14 People booked so far, but we are expecting 25 total
So much more to do!!! But this is the funn part I have been waiting for. I couldn't wait for the Holidays to be over so I can really get started. January has been a productive month, so far.
Now there are only 2 things that I REALLY want, but right now aren't in the cards...Yet....
#1..For my Brother and His family to be able to come to Mexico :-( I really would love for ALL of my family to be in the Wedding and just be there...Especially his two kids, My Neices...However..his job isn't Stable at the moment...It;s still in the air, but chances are slim. :-(
#2..For money to somehow magically appear so i can hire DJ Mannia and have my reception on the beach with the Illuminated Dance floor! LOL
Everyone keeps say we are getting a Stimulus Check...I don't think we are and didn't hear anything about a check, just a plan...However..If we do...Then Barrack will have bought me my DJ!! Hahahahahahaha
Can you tell I don't want to work today??
