          I am trying to get my papers done too...that will be a huge strees reliever!!! i am getting more excited and more anxious the closer it gets...My dress and BM dresses are in and fitting is next week, need to get going on the welcome letter and place setting/center pieces/reception cd's. I also need to buy some clip in extensions? Anyone know of a good place in ontario?....Less than 6 weeks to go, and it's snowing like a bit** here, so i can't wait to be sitting in the sun...

            So girls, I got some things checked off! Woohoo. I had my first fitting tonight (sorry no pics). I love my dress. I hadn't seen it in white (tried it on in ivory) and I totally love it. I also received FI and GM's pants and flip flops today. They're great. I got my bathing suits from VS yesterday. Yay! I picked up the things I needed to complete my OOT bags. I bought what I need to make my placecards. Will work on that tomorrow. So, I'm feeling a little better about things...

            Kate, I love your jewelry!

              Is the translation a difficult thing to do?? I think I may have chosen a different location if it wasn't for this.
              It's getting close ladies....I'm really excited. How about anyone else? All my stuff is pretty much ready too but a busy month in the works with dress fittings, hair appts and my bachelorette in the beginning on jan!!! I can't believe its almost time...i've been planning this for a whole year!

                thanks Kelly! That is awesome about your dress!
                We ordered the GM flipflops last night too. I got the number to schedule by fitting and scheduled my boudoir photoshoot too! Yay!

                What I am really frusterated with is choosing a veil. Can't find one! Ugh!

                      Hi everyone!

                      I haven't posted on this part of the forum yet.... Wow - January is really close all of a sudden!!! When did it sneak up on me?!? And, who would have thought that a destination wedding would take so much time to plan! LOL

                      I am starting to freak out a bit too, (not about the wedding or marriage or anything), but really because I just realized there are ONLY 50 days until we get married... and I feel like there is still sooo much to do!!! I'm kinda worried I won't get it done!

                      Things we already have in order:
                      1. Ceremony site is picked and booked
                      2. Dinner after the ceremony is taken care of
                      3. Music and photographer is taken care of
                      4. We have our rings (they are currently being engraved)
                      5. I have my dress!!!
                      6. Groom has his outfit
                      7. Bridemaids and groomsmen are clothed too!
                      8. Legal docs are taken care of, translated, etc.
                      9. Predeparture brochures and luggage tags are done, printed... and being prep'd to send out (we'll probably do this in 1 1/2 to 2 weeks)
                      10. MOH, bridesmaid gifts are purchased and assembled
                      11. OOT bags are started.... still need a bunch of items though to complete them
                      12. Predeparture hotel has been set up, and transport to the airport and back is taken care of.
                      13. Welcome reception prior to departure is organized
                      14. Musicians before, during and after the ceremony is taken care of, but I still have to pick the songs!

                      Things we still have to do:
                      1. Sand ceremony containers.... no idea where to go for these??
                      2. Finish up the OOT bags - do up welcome letter, prepare map, get list of tours, plan excursion (?), do up meet-the-guests doc, and get travel mugs. I'm also waiting on an order to arrive... not sure how long that will be! Maybe I should be following up?! :)
                      3. Accessories... we're going barefoot, but I have no other jewelery. Any recommendations?
                      4. Seating arrangements for dinner/ table assignments
                      5. Pick bouquet, table arrangements, etc through the resort
                      6. Order additional pieces of cake
                      7. Get guest book/ pic frame for signatures
                      8. Write vows
                      9. Pick songs for ceremony
                      10. Pick hair-do for wedding, get pre-departure cut and colour
                      11. Get into way better shape! LOL

                      I am sure I'm forgetting something..... or a few things! Oh boy! :) Any thoughts on what I still need to do that is not on my list I would really appreciate it! :)
