    I was thinking about sending the invites out in November. So everyone will have received them prior to seeing them for the holidays. Then maybe RSVP due Feb 1st. I don't know if it is all too early, but I feel I need to due to a lot of slackers. I don't want a ton of last minute surprises!

        That is a great idea about sending out the invites in November before the Holidays! I might do that too! I was going to send them in December and totally forgot about the holidays!!!

          Yay for April brides!!!

          Getting married April 18th in Negril. So far, we have:

          - reserved venue
          - contract with photographer
          - made flight and hotel arrangements for wedding & honeymoon
          - purchased BM dresses
          - purchased GM shirts
          - ordered my dress
          - purchased FI's suit
          - almost ready to put deposit on AHR venues
          - purchased OOT bags, bottle openers
          - sent STDs
          -tons of research! I know what I'll be getting for the BM gifts and the other contents of the OOT bags, I just need time to order and assemble
          - developed draft playlist
          - developed draft guest list for AHR
          - put together gift registry (spending my evenings now writing thank you notes)

          Moving right along.....

            Are you guys planning on making your own invites or are you ordering them?
            I was planning on mailing them after the holidays, but you guys have changed my mind. I think before the holidays would be more logical because then our guests won't spend all their money on presents! They can just have one big present and that will be our wedding!

            Now I'm sounding selfish, I know.....

                Ok, I just had a mini panic attack when i looked at all you guys have done! I haven't even booked our trip/accommodation for our resort yet!

                So far I have:
                Booked the resort (officiant etc)
                Sent out STD
                Bought BM dresses
                Found what i think will be my dress
                Created website

                That is it!!! I am so thankful for this site though, it will help me be more efficient when i actually get started on everything else. (We plan to send our invites in November as well... best to give everyone a last push to book before the holidays if they haven't already by then!

                  Glad we're all in good company and seems like everyone is moving along! I am sending my invites out November 1 and now am relieved to see I'm not the only one who decided that. Some people tried to talk us out of sending them that early but I think it is completely necessary with the holidays and our booking deadline is January 1. We are meeting with a couple people to design and make the invitations. I really wanted to do them myself but I just can't commit to that project. I wish I had the time but I plan weddings myself and October is an insane month for me so I won't be able to get them done and mailed by November.

                  JHarwood- we are the only ones on April 25th I think! Congrats!

                  Thank you for starting this thread! Lets keep it alive!

                    I am an April 21st, 2009 Bride.

                    So far this is what we have done:

                    Booked our Resort & 40 spots for friends and family
                    (Iberostar Varadero and 39 of us are booked and ready to go!)
                    Booked our AHR hall
                    Booked our caterer and decorator for AHR
                    Mailed our Destination Wedding invitations and RSVP cards
                    Bought my wedding dress
                    Asked our wedding parties
                    Bought OOT bags and supplies
                    Bought AHR invitations
                    Asked our flower girl and ring bearers
                    Asked my bro-in-law to play guitar as I walk down the aisle and provided song for him to learn
                    Made wedsite on weddingannouncer.com

                    Still have lots to do! We are making some things for the OOT bags and have to find our discount mugs. Then its choosing decorations and food for AHR and then lose weight and im good! LOL oh and bridesmaid dresses! Cant wait for everything to come together!

                      Ladies I win the slacker award unfortunately. You are off to a great start. I on the other hand, just booked our resort. My wedding dress just came in and this weekend my MOH is picking out her dress. I'm working on the STD's now. I'm hoping I'll have them mailed out on the Sept. 18th. It will be exactly 7 months from our wedding date.

                      Melissa you are my wedding twin, our dates are the same!
