I am getting married May 16, at the Iberostar Del Mar and ya just made me feel like puking - hahaha!!!
Half of ya already got welcome bags (I think that's what OOT stands for - can u tell i am new to this) put together - WOW WOW WOW!!!
I got engaged like 2 yrs ago and ya still got me beat!
I do have:
the date and hotel (which was the hardest decision ever - 4 serious)
our stay paid for
the guest list
deposits on the guests through our Travel Agent
maybe some shoes
photographer (Citalli thru Claudia Rodriguez)
and yep that's about it - Sad huh!
save the dates went out 2 months ago
I don't know if I should send invitations although I said I would on the save the date which was a pretty detailed package - i mean package it was a .10 oz box! It came with brochures on the hotel choices Iberostar Del Mar, Grand, and Lindo. A starfish with ribbon and tag save the date and some other frills. A letter describing all their choices and who they must go through our TA plus additional information and prices. Also, in the letter our TA, due to limited airseats and rising fuel prices, wanted all our guests to secure a deposit with her before Aug 23. So everyone who wanted to come already booked. So that's my delema (sp)... My save the dates were kinda like invites because they had a rsvp date on them - right So do I send Invitations (I said on the std letter "formal invite to follow") my fiance says just to send invitations to those people that already booked (my invitations are kinda expensive we are doing message in a bottle invites just cuz they are a keepsake too) (I think that's kinda stupid -what do ya think)
Umm, question for you gurus: when you decided on your invitations when did you make the rsvp date for And when will you send your invitiations out?

I also booked my BD shoot for March 17! On Tuesday we're adding a few more to our cruise, which will bring us up to 21 adults and 2 kids.
I want my Ering diamond reset. The setting I wear now is the original setting he bought for me years ago. We bought our wedding bands in St Thomas this past year. So I want my diamond reset into a band with channel set diamonds like our wedding bands so I can wear both. So we started pricing replacement settings. It's going to be my Christmas present =)
I really don't have alot I can do right now till after the new year. I'm giving a cut off of Jan 31 for the cruise. After that, they won't be getting an OOT bag or have a taxi to the hotel for the wedding from the cruise port. Nor will they have reservations for dinner at the gourmet restaurant after the wedding!

The dress was the hardest part for me!
I'm wondering...how did you order flowers if you aren't sure of the venue?
Don't stress! Just let everyone know that they need to be prepared to book rooms and flights once you decide on a venue.
