PANIC
    OMG I totally just realized that I forgot to talk to you about the Rock the reception thing!! How could I forget?!! I think it's so worth it cause it'll be the highlight of the night! We were planning on doing the same but we don't have coreographers in my end of the country!! You need to get a video!!

        Eek! I just realized my first bridal shower is in 2 weeks!! I need to find something to wear for that and our legal ceremony on St. Patrick's day.

        And I am less than 2 weeks away from paying for everything at the Resort, I can't believe it's that close.

          UM yeah- we had to pay our balance for the trip on Friday! Crazy stuff!
          WE made a make-shift asembly table on our dining room so that I can see everything that needs to be completed and FI finally realized that there is a lot to do!
          Invites should be in this week and will be sent out next week! (only sending them to people who booked)
          Need to print out AHR invites also!
          And the list goes on!

              Alright ladies, where do you all stand on the to-do list?

              Dress for Legal Ceremony 3/19
              Petti Coat

                I'm not alone!
                Knowing that.. I feel better and motivated.

                I have...
                • applied for Melanie's passport (my 5 month old baby)
                • ordered my dress
                • sent STD magnets
                • created wedding website
                • decided what will be in the OOT bags
                • paid for airline tickets
                Most important so far... Picked the right guy and joined BDW for some help and much needed guidance.

                  I'm feeling a little stressed especially when I look at the ticker in my siggy and it says I have less than 2 months...so exciting and nerve racking at the same time!!

                  Things I have left to do are..

                  mail notarized documents
                  book caterer for AHR (we're having it april 25th) eeek
                  decide what MC will say during AHR
                  decide on structure/timeline of AHR
                  dress fitting (this week)
                  buy body tape (so dress sticks to skin)
                  re-count supplies and favors for OOT bags and make sure I've packed enough of them.
                  re-pack OOT stuff into a suitcase that I can fold into another one (so I don't have to pay for a 2nd suitcase on the way home!

                  We're getting down to the wire! This thread is great for reminding me of what I need to do.

                    Wowsers... yeah I definitely have been avoiding this thread, but I guess it is high time I kick our to-do-list in high gear.

                    I will say this, the Fi has been oh so helpful in getting some things done.

                    Wedding stuff we still need to do:
                    Get bridesmaids dress order finalized (yeah, they still haven't placed their orders)
                    Buy bridal accessories (jewelry, hair/veil stuff, purse, petticoat etc.)
                    Finalize guest count (need to follow-up on over 100 RSVP cards that haven't been sent back... sheesh people, it already has a stamp on it!)
                    Buy guest book
                    Schedule dance lessons for first dance
                    Find a hair stylist/make-up artist on location
                    Buy sand ceremony kit
                    Insure engagement ring
                    Take engagement photos (I swear, we'll be married before we take a single engagement picture... lol)
                    Oh, and probably the biggest thing -- FIND A WEDDING GOWN! No pressure.
