      I know!!! Last night FI was telling someone that we had been engaged for 4 months... I was like, ummm.. no... we've been engaged for 6 months and the wedding is only 6 months away. I think he was kind of in shock that it was sneaking up so fast. And it also really hit me when the words came out of my mouth...

        I'm so scared to see how fast time goes by after the holidays!

        I did however give all people going on our cruise and the ones that are procrastinating, a cut off of Jan 31 to let us know. This way I'm not killed with trying to order all of my stuff for the OOT bags at once. I have bought some stuff so far, I'm just ordering extra stuff that I can always use around the house, like lotion and body wash!

          Cattie that is a good idea. I want to start to buy the stuff for my OOT bags but I dont want to buy too little or too much!

            Ive gotten a few things like Tylenol and some first aid kits. I have been building it into my couponing trips so they come out to free or near free.

                Speaking of first aid kits, I just bought 30 from Target & CVS. They are white Johnson & Johnson plastic kits with at least 15 band aids inside. Anticeptic wipes and gauze are also included. They were only 97 cents each- a great buy, I think! There is a little room inside to advil, tums, etc.

                I am giving everyone until 2/15 to RSVP. Now I'm thinking about moving it up. The thing is, I know there are going to be last minute changes no matter what I do.

                  I think my plans are starting to come along

                  Engaged August 2nd

                  What I have done:
                  -Spent 2 months selecting resort-fought with FMIL for 2 months and decided on The Royal in Playa Del Carmen!!
                  -Booked Civil and non denominational ceremony
                  -Paid for our wedding suite
                  -Deposit pd on the wedding ceremonies
                  -Booked date of May 27th
                  -Compiled list of guests
                  -Save the date email sent
                  -Confirms with friends that are photographers that they are coming.

                  Sheesh it feels like I have done so much more...yikes

                  To do next:
                  -Dress, dress, dress!
                  -Finalize invitation list with FI
                  -Book Flights
                  -Renew Passports
                  -Start DIY invitations

                  So, I keep seeing OOT bags...I am totally out of the loop...can someone tell me what they are so I am not missing something I should probably be doing.
                  My local bridal shop is having a 50% off instock dresses sale so I am headed there this weekend!

                    OOT=out of town bags...gifts for your guests. I am putting sunblock, advil, first aid kit, candles etc in mine. If you search OOT bags you will find a ton of threads on it

                      I feel like such a slacker... I got so much done in the first 2 months of being engaged... Ya know... all the big stuff, but there are a million details to still iron out and I haven't really been doing much as far as finalizing the little things... It's just so overwhelming!
