        Hello everyone! I am a June 2009 bride! We are getting married June 20, 2009 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica at the Riu! We are getting really excited! This is what we have done so far...

        1. Booked the room and ceremony
        2. Sent out STDs
        3. Bought my dress
        4. Found the MOH dress
        5. Ordered my flowers

        We are working on DIY invitations and fan programs. I need to get planning for the AHR. We have not even started that project yet. But things for the wedding in Jamaica are going quite well! We have 12 people booked so far. I think many of our other guests are waiting until after the first of the year to book.

        I am so excited that there is a June 2009 thread now!!!

            That is awesome that there is another person on here from the Dayton area! And we are both going to Ocho Rios to the Riu! Great minds think alike. You are getting married on the day that we leave!

            I am not sure yet where we are going to have our AHR. FI family is in Cinci and my family live in Columbus. So we are located right in the middle! I think we have decided to have it in the Dayton area, but are not sure where. The biggest problem that we are having is finding a place that will allow outside catering. A guy that my FI works with on the base runs a catering business on the side and has given us an excellent deal! It seems that the easiest places to go might be VFW halls.

              That's the same problem I was having for a while. I wanted to have an AHR but I didn't want to pay the high prices that the hotels and country clubs were charging. If you are going to have it in Dayton, you should check out Arbor Hall. I don't know if you've heard of them but they allow you to bring in your own caterer and its the most decent looking place I've seen for all the places that let you bring in your own caterer. Their rental fee is steep, in my opinion, its 900.00 with a 450 dollar deposit. If you can get past that, you should check them out. The website is Arbor Hall They have a lot of pictures of how the rooms can be set up.

                <<Calling all BDW June 09 brides>>

                I just looked at my countdown and my day is close to being 200 days out!!! And even though the time is a tickin, I've gotten into slump lately and been ignoring all the DIY projects I've got planned

                Am I the only one starting to feel the pressure, but still not getting off my ass to fix it?

                    I am actually forcing myself to wait until January to do anything else for the wedding. I am taking two grad classes (on top of working full time) and they end on Dec 11th. I have had to tell myself to wait until these classes are done, or I would be failing right now!!

                    I feel like I am close to where I should be. My friends and family are being so slack in booking their travel that I don't want to do too much DIY, not knowing an approximate number of guests yet!!

                    We will be okay ladies...still around 7 months to go Actually today is my 7 months exactly to go!! WOOHOO!!!

                      I hear ya ladies!!
                      I am starting my DIY projects in January, except for my invites. I am doing boarding passes and I am such a perfectionist, I change something on them everyday. And since I have to have ne version in French, one in English, I want to start printing over Xmas, even though I plan on sending them out in February...

                      My list of stuff to do is growing, but I feel like I have too much time, that is why I am procrastinating on everything else. I have to get the BM dresses soon... :-S
