As far as the dresses in aqua; I forget do you guys have davids bridal? I'm thinking you don't but I cant remember. If you do they have a beautiful aqua color in every style you can imagine.

This thread is probably a good thing for me but it also stresses me out a little since I feel like I am falling far behind -- I just got a promotion and my FI is starting a new job (HURRAY!) so the wedding has been on the back-burner for both of us for the last 2.5 months!
This is where i am at so far:
Engaged: December 8, 2007
Feverish research and planning: January 2008-March 2008 --hours and hours and hours to decided on location, wedding date, number of people, duration of trip, etc.
Location Scouting Trip: end of March 2008 - checked out the whole area around Puerto Vallarta, tried a bunch of restaurants and looked at different hotels, got to visit Las Caletas and meet Kelley -- now 100% we were meant to get married at LC!!!
Ceremony location and date confirmed: Las Caletas, January 20, 2009
Resort Chosen: Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa
Travel Agents: Yes, plural -- one for US guests and one for Canadian guests. Tammy, our BDW host, helped me get a great deal at the Dreams hotel in PV for the US guests and I'm working with Megan Crouse for Canada
Photographer booked: Nathaniel Thompson!!! Very excited to have a member of the BDW community joining us!
Website: I went with wedding window because I got a free promo code through a friend that works for Martha Stewart publications - I can't believe I am "googlable" now. http://www.juliaandjohn2009.com
Save the Dates: 100 ordered from William Arthur and sent out in April.
Dress and Veil: Romona Keveza gown ordered in NYC in February 2008...expected delivery mid-September. I am having a veil made but still working out the details....
Engagement party: June 7, 2008 which was a blast
Engagement Photos: to be taken on the beach at my FI's family cottage at the end of this month by his sister who is a professional photographer
Rehearsal dinner: looks like that will be booked by the end of this week -- still figuring out between two restaurants
So now that I've written it all out it looks like a lot but here's what left::
1. have to sit down and design and place order for invites (need to be sent by end of August and it takes up to 6 weeks for the order)
2. BRIDESMAID DRESSES -- I keep putting this off because my bridesmaids are in 4 different countries on 3 continents at the moment so it's not easy
3. FI's attire for wedding
4. groomsmen attire for wedding
5. Wedding rings (and we're planning to have them custom made because we want engraved patterns but again this keeps getting put off)
6. flowers, table top designs, ceremony decor, etc.
7. music -- and this is important...i've thought about it but no decisions have been made
8. welcome bags, bridal party gifts, deciding if I am going to do a newletter
9. day after brunch and welcome cocktail party
10. ceremony/vows (we're writing our own vows)
11. booking honeymoon stay -- i have a list of a few remote hotels in the general vicinity of PV and we want to so stay there for two or three nights before we come home but haven't organized that just yet!
Sometimes it feels totally manageable and other times i remember just how much time and energy went into getting everything done so far and i think it'll never get done in time...!!! I hope this thread will help me stay a little organized now that i've written all this out, plus make me feel like i've at least accompolished quite a lot...

We met with a jewler today who said it'd take about a month for a custom made one. He also reminded us that November and December are busy months so things will take longer. I am going to go back in the next month and put down the deposit and have him start on it so that I know I have it a few months early and I don't have to worry about the holiday rush.
