    Hi Girls!

    I might be the only one, but I'm totally paranoid that I'm WAY behind on my planning! These are the few done things:

    Booked location/date
    Hotel/air booked & paid for
    Bought FI's wedding clothes & shoes
    Bought OOT bags and some contents
    Wrote vows
    Bought/sent STDs
    AHR plans coming along easily!
    Picked out BMs and their dresses (not ordered yet)
    Music for ceremony
    Bought Groomsmen shirts
    Have photographer booked (a wedding gift from our friend the photog! LOVE IT!)

    Geez, when I put it down on paper, it really doesn't look like much!

    How are you guys doing?

        1. booked dreams punta cana, and flight
        2. sent out save the dates, DIY boarding passes
        3. found my dress, and ordered it.
        4. not having any attendants so don't need to worry about that

        next step is FI and sons clothing.

          WoW! Now I really feel like a slacker!

          Here's what I have so far:

          1) booked location
          2) booked air/hotel
          3) sent STD
          4) created website
          5) ordered dress

          I think that's all!
          I wish I could do more but I'm still stuck on my wedding colors!!!!!!!!

              Hi girls! I have been anxiously awaiting a place for April brides...I think this means it is approaching rapidly!

              We are getting married at Dreams Tulum so far:
              - made room reservations
              - ordered and picked up my dress
              - bridesmaids have dresses ready to go
              - ordered OOT bags waiting to get them screen printed
              - started to purchase things for OOT bags
              - ordered ceremony fans (currently wrapping the handles with ribbon and working on hang tags)
              - purchased groomsmen shirts
              - purchased groom's shirt
              - purchased my rehearsal dinner dress and post reception dress
              - picked out wedding bands - ordering this week yay!
              - STDs out
              - meeting with stationary company this month to design invitations
              - picking our AHR venue next weekend
              - booked a fishing charter for the guys the day before the wedding

              So much to do I don't even know where to go from here. I feel like I've started a ton of things and finished none haha.

              Glad to know we're all here now!

                You girls are doing great!!
                Now, I'm feeling like a slacker. Well I know I am, but I feel we have plenty of time, right?
                I have-
                booked location and room
                purchased dress
                created website
                sent out passport STD
                booked photographer

                I have a lot to do on my list, but I am trying to keep it as simple as possible. I don't want to start on OOT stuff till I have a better idea of who is coming.

                Tiffany-you are a neighbor and a date twin! It looks like you could have your wedding next week and it would be complete and beautiful. Way to go!

                  You Girls are on a ROLL!!!

                  I'm getting married on the 11th and I really haven't done anything yet!
                  • Booked the trip
                  • Paid 3/4 of the way for wedding and honeymoon
                  • ordered my dress
                  • chose, but not order the bridesmaid dresses
                  • got the FIs suit yesterday! (and what a steal - less than $500 at Theory!!! Thank goodness for the summer sale!)
                  • made and send STDs
                  • searching around for paper for my invitations

                  I am looking for a place that has great paper... I really think I want to do a pink and black damask wedding or blue and black damask... Anyone have any ideas

                  I'm proud of you girls! You're on it!

                  By the way, how do I get my picture on the side?? WHy the heck is it UNDER my post?
