          WOW! You all seem very on the ball. Since it is only my FI and I going I keep telling myself that I have less to worry about.

          What we have done: booked location and purchased flights (ROR 05/17-23/09 - wedding 05/20); dress and FI outfit purchased; AHR location and caterer booked and deposits paid; passports in our hands.

          What we need to do: shoes, jewelry, hair, invitations, some minor AHR decisions still, and I suppose anything else that comes up.

          Best of luck in planning to all of you!

                Oh crap! I have to get on the ball! So far here's what I have somewhat finished:
                Wedding ceremony/reception- booked with a deposit
                paid for hotel room for me, fi and our 2 kids
                booked DJ-Soundwaves
                booked photographer-Studio Julie
                Waiting for my dress that I had to exchange for size to come in
                Purchased shoes
                Purchased most of my makeup, but have to wait to fade b4 I can buy my true shade
                Purchased FI outfit inc. shoes
                Picked out std's and invites and now waiting for them to be made by someone who is crafty...meaning not me.
                Picked out ideas for centerpiece, hair, makeup look, cocktail gathering

                that's it and it seems like I have sooo much more to do.

                Good luck May brides!
