Reading this thread, and seeing how much everyone has gotten done is making me nervous I feel very behind!!! All I have done really is send my invitations, buy my dress, and buy my wedding flip flops!! I look forward to getting to know you all, and hopefully reading your posts will get my butt in gear :)
We have the same wedding date! Yay! I have to drag FI shopping for whatever he is going to wear. He looked online and was like, well I know what we're going to get so we don't really have to rush right out and buy it. lol Oh well. We also still need to go ring shopping. Got to get on that this week.

ps~ Has Dez been on lately? I haven't seen her posting, but I could just be missing them in other threads.

Hi Ladies! Hope you are all well... can you believe that we only have 3 months to go? Only 98 days for me, so weird! Time is going by faster and faster.

I was in Boston for work since last Friday and have stayed away from the internet since Thursday. I did have a confrence call with my WC Saturday morning though, which went really well and we got a lot accomplished!

I picked out meals for the welcome dinner, rehersal dinner and wedding night. Figured out some decorating things and made sure we are both on the same page with budget.

We are having the fire dancers for the welcome dinner, mariachi for wedding music and fireworks at our reception. Pretty excited that it is all coming together. Our BM dresses are late, they were supposed to be in at the end of september, they are backed up so it won't be until thanksgiving! Which is fine, but I really need them by TG so my sis can take hers back to CA to get altered.

Otherwise, not much new here!

Still so much to do!!!

FI has nothing to wear...and neither does his BM. Hopefully he is ordering it by the end of this week!

We don't have wedding bands, our docs still have to be translated. I have NO details/info from the WC!!! I need to find shoes, a couple more gifts for my MOH, gift for photographer (a friend!), FI has to get gift for his BM, DIY personalized pens, DIY welcome books to complete (need info from WC), music, lingerie, book salon, picture list for photographer, and I'm sure there are a dozen more things that I am forgetting!!

Is anyone else in the same boat I am!??

I am pretty much in the same boat, not one part of the whole thing is complete, it just feels like I have so many loose ends I don't know where to start. We did just order our bands this week, but I am afraid I won't end up liking mine (we ordered online). So...you are not alone!

I don't know how wide spread these are, but Hobby Lobby is having a 50% off sale thru 10/18 on all wedding items. I got unity candle (mom wants something religious since we aren't getting married in a church), flower girl baskets and the most adorable mints - "Mint to Be" on the front, tin shaped like bride and groom, heart shaped mints inside. .99 each.

Another January bride who hasn't checked-in in a while...I hadn't even thought of it in terms of days until reading this thread!!! Yikes! I was consoling myself thinking it was still 3 months and 4 days but now that the days are in the 90s...OMG!!!

 

Here's where I'm at in terms of my to do list:

-veil

-lingerie for under wedding dress

-matching ties for groomsmen

-need BM/MOH gifts

-welcome letters and week itinerary

-welcome bag assembly (not doing typical "OOT bags" but having personalized travel candles, mints, and playing cards in each room along with local map)

-order all of the above for welcome bags

-play list for DJ

-order fans, sparklers, maracas

-favor tags

-table cards and place cards

-guestbook

-programs

-fing dress and shoes for rehearsal dinner

-write vows

-book hair and makeup trials

 

All that and I still need to finalize details with my wedding coordinator. Luckily I'm not at all worried about the details when it comes to that because she's really easy to get in touch with and is totally on top of things but the rest of the list feels endless and is really stressing me out. I keep feeling like I'm forgetting a million things to boot! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who put things off for a little while but I still feel like I am especially far behind!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
