    My band was a little over budget too considering we didn't budget for one! Oh well, only get to do this once, right?! I just never thought I would find one that worked.

    We aren't having a bridal party either...I meant all of your FI's but that wasn't too clear, sorry. My FI tried on his sandals with his suit and it didn't look right. We'll either be buying him new sandals or dress shoes.

      Yeah, that's kind of what I figured too. You (usually) only get to do this once, so it may as well be a band you love looking at hehe!

      No worries! :) I was confused! My FI hasn't picked out a pair yet, hopefully they don't look silly with his outfit since I know he loathes wearing dress shoes lol. It shouldn't look too bad though, he's wearing a nice, casual, white collared shirt (rolled up sleeves for a more casual look), and a nice pair of khakis.

        Here are a few pics of projects we've been working on:

        The bottles are done but I don't have pics yet. Here's a pic of the empty bottle and label we designed. You can't see the label well but it says Jamaican Rum, Est 2009:

        We made DIY luggage tags - 2/guest. We asked them to send us a few of their favorite pictures from past vacations. If they didn't have that we just asked for pictures that meant something to them. Of course we didn't tell them why we needed them! We just said they were for a little project. We turned their pictures into luggage tags using self-laminating pouches and put our logo on the back along with their personal information.

        Here's a pic of the front:

        And here's my t-shirt from Vista Print for the airplane :). It says We're Tying the Knot!

            Andrea everything looks great love the idea of the luggage tags meaning something to them.

            It is so exciting to finally see the ticker say 2 months .... but makes me realize how much is left to do. We started this week looking for FI outfit since he had a dream he did not have anything to wear and was running late to the wedding lol the things that get them motivated. I still also need to get MOH and flowergirl dresses but I am waiting to see if one of my FG is still coming. Today is the day all our RSVPs were due out of 80 I think we got 15 back... hmmm until we get them we are kind of on hold since the rest of my stuff we really need to know how many people are coming.

              Thanks again for the message in a bottle supplies website info! I'm sooooo happy with the quality of their products!

              Not knowing who is going to be at your wedding makes planning tough! We invited 65+ and 21 are attending.

                  Hi everyone! I am late posting to this thread but I am a Feb 09 bride- hooray! I also can't wait for the big day..I don't know what I will do with all the extra hours in the day without anything wedding related :). I think I will go into withdrawals not being able to plan or be on the forum all the time! LOL. Isn't it amazing how the to-do list never ends. Especially my fiance's who to-do list never seems shorter (hmmmm).
                  So here is what I have done:
                  Site visit
                  Had the families meet (major hurdle)
                  Send out STD's
                  Send out Invites- about 55 ppl confirmed and waiting on 35 invite replies still
                  Wrote special thank-you's for those in bridal party
                  Booked venues/details
                  Signed all contracts for vendors except florist
                  spoken to minister about ceremony and did vows
                  Bought dress/accessories
                  Got my rings :):):)
                  Booked photographer (gave her poses), DJ and gave DJ the songs to play
                  Picked out flowers...I have the "image" of what I want :)
                  Worked with my mom who is wonderfully doing welcome bags
                  Bought groom's tux
                  Booked appointments for hair make-up at Hyatt and apts. with WC's
                  **Most proud- started working out with trainer :)

                  What I need to do:
                  Transportation for wedding party between locations
                  Pick a Hotel for remaining three days (to get a mini break from guests :))
                  Bought FI's ring
                  Final dress fitting
                  Picked out groomsmen attire
                  Get CD of songs for actual ceremony for wedding coordinator
                  purchase bridesmaids/groomsmen gifts
                  Confirmed flowers/contract with florist
                  Get final numbers/stragglers for final dinner count
                  Do rehearsal dinner rsvp and email or call invite (we lagged on this one because we couldn't decide how big/small and what we could afford after all the other wedding stuff!!!)
                  Do programs and print up any small signs for ceremony and welcome letter for guests
                  Pick reading for my brother for ceremony
                  Have a glass of wine when I think about my to-do list :)


                  I feel like I am forgetting a million things right now... what have I been so busy with the past 8 months? For some reason my mind keeps jumping to the "to do" list! I think the remaining items are some of the expensive things..doh.

                    Wow you sound like you have it all put together. I wish I could say the same. I am too embarrassed to write my to do list on the forum, everyone would laugh. Oh well I work best under pressure.

                    Are you going to have a welcome dinner or cocktail hour for your guests when most of them arrive? I am debating whether or not to have one.

                      Are you guys getting as overwhelmed as me? i feel Like the weeks are flying by and I have a ton of DIY projects to do still!!!!!!!!

                      I am having a hard time finding nice sandals for FI. We originally were going to keep it more casual but now he is wearing a white linen suit and I am not sure that flip flops would look that good. all the sandals i found on Zappos that I like are way to expensive.
                      Any of you have any ideas where to look?
