          I was just saying I needed a drink last night! Its crazy how much stuff I have going on ASIDE from the wedding. I'm studying for my licensure test, trying to fit in working out daily so I can lose the weight I want to lose by the wedding and preparing to move during the month of the wedding. I need several cocktails!

                If you have about 25-30 guests other than yourself, do you bother with place cards

                  I wasn't planning on doing place cards. I figured by the day of the wedding everyone will know everyone and people can just sit wherever.

                  *Anyone not doing a 'reception' but just a dinner? We are doing a dinner, where we will cut the cake, do the first dance and thing I figured we would all head over to one of the resort bars. There is like 40 of us so I figure wherever we are there will be a party! Does this sound like an okay idea?

                    Given we will have at most 30, we plan to do the same thing...just a dinner with a few formalities...cutting the cake and first dance. But, then I figured we would find a bar to hang out at.

                    Everytime I feel like I got a bunch of stuff done, I realize I still have a lot to do either for the DW or the AHR.

                      We are possibly going to have a cocktail hour - if one more room is booked, it will be free. We would do a champaign toast and cut the cake there. We are also having just dinner and then dancing at the Disco. No formal reception. We didn't have the budget for it.

                      So I feel SOOOOO behind...I need to make a list to see how far I'm actually behind.

                      DONE:
                      -My Dress
                      -FI Clothes (3/4 of it, anyway)
                      -BM Clothes
                      -GM Clothes picked out, not yet purchased
                      -Flowers
                      -Jewelery (for me and BMs)
                      -OOT Bag Contents purchased (Survival Kits, Travel Mugs, Playing Cards, + Bags)
                      -Pre-travel Brochures printed
                      -Luggage Tags printed, but not assembled
                      -Passports
                      -Air/Resort booked
                      -Ceremony on schedule
                      -Photographer booked
                      -Some raffia fans purchased
                      -Created/Printed RSVP card for AHR
                      -Purchased favors for AHR
                      -Table clothes/vases/candles for AHR

                      NOT DONE:
                      -Purchase GM clothes
                      -Bride Shoes (for after ceremony)
                      -Music for ceremony

                      -Sand Ceremony Frame
                      -Decoration for OOT Bags
                      -Hair/Makeup Trial
                      -Legal Ceremony
                      -Wedding Bands (hopefully getting those this week)
                      -Food/Drinks for AHR
                      -Music for AHR
                      -Invitations for AHR

                      -Assemble favors for AHR
                      -Flowers for AHR

                      That is all I can think of right now. It isn't AS bad as I though, but whew...only 10 weeks to go. YIKES!!
