              We are writing our own vows, but haven't started yet. Ladies, I'm starting to freak out. I feel like I have so much to do. Who wants to come over and help? lol Or atleast drink wine with me! So, we had some of FI's friends book last minute. Now I am short 3 raffia fans for the ceremony and a few things for our OOT bags, not to mention now I'm one bag short. I'm annoyed that now I need to go look for these things again and buy more stuff.

              I still have to:
              wrap the fans with ribbon
              make my MOH and BM tank tops (iron ons)
              make our 'things to know before you go' brochure
              make placecards and print the recipe for our favors (were doing starfish cookie cutters)
              find FI a shirt!
              find GM a shirt (I found one I like but can't find it in his size any where)
              buy GM gift
              book our wedding party excursion (we're heading to the jungle!) lol
              order FI's ring
              and decide if we're using a dj or our ipod!

              Its going to be a busy couple of weeks. I need a drink!
              Oh, and my dress fitting is Thursday night so I'll finally get to see it for the first time. Yay!

                Hey ladies! Haven't been on here in a while - work is so busy its cutting into by BDW time, can't say I'm impressed! Anyways, things are getting done slowly but surely.

                All of our guests have paid in full so we are looking at 49 people with the possibility that 4 more may book. So needless to say I'm short on guest favours and raffia fans...oh well, c'est la vie!

                My FI and I went to the Dominican Embassy yesterday to process our documents and hand over the cash. $360 US ($450 CAD with the exhange rate being what it is)! Now we just sit back and wait until I have to go pick them up next week. Then we meet with our TA who will help us sort out all the details of the wedding ceremony next Thursday.

                FI and I also picked and ordered our wedding bands yesterday. I haven't been able to make a decision about a diamond band for the life of me, and FI knew exactly what he wanted so we went ahead and ordered his. Then they told me I only had a week or so to decide on mine in order to make sure it was in on time. Instead of feeling rushed to pick a diamond band, I ended up ordering the matching band to my FI but in a ladies width. It is a gorgeous hammered white gold ring with a sandblasted finish in the middle....Hard to describe, but goes perfectly with my solitaire. I wanted a plain band and a diamond band, so the diamond band will have to wait until I can decide. All I care about is that I have a band I love for the ceremony. Yeah - such arelief! I was starting to stress.

                Now I'm working on the Dominican Survival Kits (in lieu of loot bags). I can't beleive next month I will be a Mrs!!

                    Wow what a great thread. I am also getting married in January. I cannot believe how fast it comes! I am really excited. Its funny how you cross things off your list but then you just keep adding things and you never feel like you accomplish anything!
