    I am doing the same thing. Our invites probably won't go out until the end of January. I sent STD's early in the process so those who are coming have already booked or are in the process!

        Hey girls! I can't believe that it's already November and April is only 5 short months away! It's crazy...
        I feel like I have so much left to do. Here's what I've done so far:

        -Booked location/date
        -Booked photographer
        -Sent out STD's (55 guests already booked with deposits!)
        -Bought FI's suit
        -Bought GM's outfits
        -Bought my dress
        -Bought OOT bags and most contents

        Up next..
        -Finishing up invitations to be mailed out hopefully in a couple of weeks
        -Setting a date for our AHR
        -Pick out wedding bands

            My bridesmaid dresses arrived today! Because I have one of the Alfred Angelo "Dream in Colour" dresses, I was concerned the colours wouldn't match (we are paying for bridesmaid dresses, so I didn't want the real AA bridesmaid dresses). However! The colour was a perfect match, and only $50 US a dress! Yahoo!

              Alright, it has been a month and a half and I feel like I haven't made any progress! Someone give me a swift kick in the pants!!!

              So here's my update:

              1. Made a deposit with the location
              2. Sent STD's and designed Invite (the prototype looks awesome!)
              3. Created wedding website
              4. Hired a travel agent (TA Jennifer)
              5. Narrowed down venue for AHR
              6. Sent color swatches to Bridesmaids

              BTW: I think I may still be the most behind April bride there is!

                I got engaged in August 2, 2008 and began planning our destination wedding mid September. Here is a list of my progress since then:
                - set a date for our wedding.
                - Booked ceremony and reception resort.
                - got our group rate
                - Paid mine and fiance's 7-night stay at the resort.
                - Created a wedding website
                - Sent our STDs
                - Bought my wedding gown
                - Bought my TTD dress
                - booked our photographer
                - booked and scheduled our engagement photos
                - scheduled our marriage retreat
                - scheduled our marriage orientation with our local priest.
                - booked flights for both of our parents and siblings.
                - bought flower girl dress.
                - picked best man, matron of honor, bridesmaids, and groomsmen.
                - scheduled an interview with my photographer for boudoir pics.
                - got my documents required for catholic wedding: (baptismal certificate, holy communion, etc)
                - got commitments from both of our parents for financial help =)

                i still feel so behind! at least the big things are out of the way now. the next big thing is ordering our invitations.

                  I don't think you're behind at all! I wouldn't worry about it anyway. It's a destination wedding so everything you really need to do it pretty much done! All you really need is something for you and FI to wear and that's all that matters! Keep in mind though that unless you buy off the rack most wedding gowns take quite a while to come in!! Good luck and happy planning!!

                      I was just thinking the other day how FAST the next 5 months are going to go!

                      Seriously once we get through the holidays...April will be just around the corner! Even though my invites are sent, there are a few things I am feeling a bit behind on already!

                      Here are the BIG things we still have to do:
                      - order both of our wedding bands
                      - Get FI's wedding attire
                      - Get my veil and accessories
                      - book our "honeymoon" hotel
                      - find a dog sitter while we are gone!
                      - arrange transportation for guests from airport to hotel
