Now what?

Recommended Posts

According to my ticker I have about 9 months until the big day.

 

I have the dress. I did make a website with what little info we do currently have, but now I am at a loss. blink.gif

 

We put the deposit on our trip and reserved the big day at Sandals, but now what?!

 

When is a good time to send invitations? When is too early? What should I be doing?

 

So confused...

It sounds like you`re well organized. Once you have your vendors booked you can kind of sit back and relax for a bit. If you`re looking for things to do you could always work on FI`s attire, your rings, begin gathering things for your OOT bags if you`re doing them, your wedding shoes, veil, jewelry...

most of the other stuff you can wait though. Typically wedding invitations don`t go out until about 3 months before for a DW, although some people send them out earlier.

 

Have you sent STD`s?

 

You have lots of time, but I think getting those chores done early is always nice. It is nice to have things organized long before you *need* them to be. If your FI wants a light colored suit it's a good time to shop now because it's harder to find those colors later in the winter/spring.

Have you sent out an STD? I don't think 9 months is too early to get started on Invites, I would send out a save the date now and start working on what kind of invite you want to have and send it out around the 4-6 month mark.

Take a look around some of the girls have started threads that say, "9 months out what do you still have left to do"

 

ps. I moved your thread, the newbie section is only for your intial intro but this thread will get better responses in this section.

Your wedding is about a month after ours. We just sent out our STDs and is currenty looking for a photographer. We will send out our invites in Sept since final payments are due early Dec.

I agree with everyone else. Send out your STD's. Start looking for BM dresses and you MOB dress. Have you picked out your colors?

Thanks for the ideas everyone. We are not doing bridesmaids dresses since there are only two attending and with the expense of the trip, I decided not to inflict dresses on them as well.

 

Colors... well the wedding dress has "pool" the David's Bridal color in it so I figured I'd go with that and maybe an orange that would really pop and stand out.

 

Hmmm... STD's.... I guess I'll start there. Thanks so much everyone!

How exciting that you only have 9 months to go!

 

I had a blast sending STD's out just a week ago. And now that I put a deposit down for the resort I am eager to move on to the "fun details" of the wedding such as colors, flowers, dress, etc.

 

I am sure you can pass your free time exploring these boards and become inspired in many ways. Enjoy your planning!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
