        I am a June 09 bride too :)

        I have my trip and ceremony booked.
        I have sent out my STDs...and already have 14 guests booked.
        I have purchased my wedding dress and BMs dresses.
        I have most of the gifts for my BMs (I am a little excited! haha).
        I'm working on booking my photographer and a site for my AHR.
        and...I think that is about all so far...

        I am trying to wait to do stuff later, but I am just so excited :)

        I hope everyone's planning is going well :)

          Yay ~ I've been waiting for a June 09 Brides Thread

          For me it's all about June 26, 2009, Akumal Bay, Riviera Maya, Mexico.

          So far wedding planning has made me a bit.... tee hee, but overall I have loved the process even though I have shit loads of stuff to do and not enough time to do it all!!

          So far I have:
          - Booked our wedding site and ceremony
          - Booked our caterer, who also happens to be my wedding coordinator
          - Established our entire appetizer, buffet and dessert menu (tasted it all too ~ delish!!!)
          - Booked a compound (villa and 4 townhomes) for 30 immediate bride and groom family members during our first week there
          - Bought a bunch of crap that will magically turn into DIY projects
          - Secured a group reservation for 18 people roundtrip that must have deposits paid by Sept. 23 but I have no idea where we're spending our 2nd week yet - yikes!
          - Sent out "will you be in my wedding" letters to my humongous wedding party (10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen)
          - Booked Charlie and Maria who will be officiating my Mayan/Cosmic Ceremony

          In the process of:
          - FI is doing the finishing touches on the STD's for us to print out and mail later this week
          - Completing our wedding website but I am being a lazy bum
          - Looked at dresses but refuse to try any on till I lose 20 pounds
          - Setting up a contract to fly out a local photographer to the wedding
          - Setting up a contract to bring my fabulous stylist to Mexico for hair and makeup for me and my gals, and the moms
          - Trying to decide on who to choose as my videographer
          - Finding the last few gifts for my bridesmaids
          - Preparing a "Will you be my Wedding Sponsor" to certain couples (a Filipino tradition)

          And most importantly ~ trying to find a way to pay for this "it will be a small wedding" that has suddenly turned into an extravaganza that is costing way too much!!!

            Wow...You guys have ALOT more then me done!!
            I am a June 24,2009 Bride :-)
            I really just decided to have a DW, so I guess that's why I am a little behind with all the planning :-)
            So far we have our date booked with our wedding package and By next weekend we will have our room booked. We started looking locally for our AHR...However...Every place I love is a little over my budget and I am actually getting a little upset over it.
            Other then that.....Our STD's just went out on Friday and I have thousands of Idea's...Now I just have to get working on all of it!! :-)
            Very Exciting!! :-0

              I'm a June 09 Bride!!

              So far we have:

              *wedding location and reception booked
              *dress purchased - should actually be receiving it next week!
              *STDs sent out
              *wedding website up
              *have the room and airfare information available for people who are ready to
              put their deposits down
              *have reception site picked out - just need to put the deposit down
              *have photographer (we're bringing one from home)
              *the dresses for the bridesmaids are picked - they just need to order them (except for MOH)

              Still need to:

              *pick out a cake, which shouldn't be a long process as I dont care about that
              *decide on centerpieces for the both receptions
              *pick out a suit for FI and groomsmen (his job)

              I feel like I'm leaving out a lot of stuff but that's ok. We are trying to get a lot of stuff done early so that when June comes, we can kind of just take it easy. lol We'll see how that plan goes. I'm glad someone started a thread for June brides. We can keep each other on track!!

                My wedding date is also June 26, 2009! I'm getting married in Jamaica. I didn't think there was anyone getting married on my date. Glad to see someone else is. I have a date twin!!!!

                      So far we..
                      Have secured a wedding date and location-Valentin
                      A lot of the decisions at the resort don't get made until we arrive.

                      We are about to order our STD's
                      Will probably send them out the end of September
                      About to book our trip!
