    We are sending ours out later this month or early Oct because 1) we don't know how many people have actually checked our website, so this will act as another reminder 2) people haven't told us either way if they are going or not so I figure this will be a little (hopefully) kick in the butt to let us know either way!

      Wow- I'm way behind most of you! I have my wedding date set (May 22, 2009), and I've submitted my contract to the photographer. The rooms are booked, but I haven't gotten airfare yet. Um... STD cards have been sent out, and the wedding website is up and running... But that is about it! I guess I"ll need to go through your lists, make my own, and get my butt in gear!!

        I've been slacking lately, for one we're waiting to refinance our house to consolidate debt and take some extra cash for the wedding. So lets see what we have done...

        Done -
        -Deposit on cruise
        -Some OOT bag stuff
        -We didn't send invites out since I didn't know we should have when we told everyone!! I've giving the people who haven't booked yet a cut off of Feb 28. This is when the final payment is due through the cruiseline and this way I can have a good headcount!
        -Hired wedding planner in Bermuda
        -Deposit on flowers through AA
        -Booked AHR venue
        -My Dress
        -Wording for AHR invitations in english and polish. My mom has a friend who is a printer and is going to print them up for us. I bought the stock already.
        -Rings, we purchased them in St Thomas this past year on our cruise
        -DJ booked

        I have alot to do, mainly its more having the cash flow to order items! I do have most of my items picked out.

          Woops - I didn't think there was a May 2009 Brides thread & I started one today - Petals lead me here! So, I've looked at everything everyone has done so far & I feel like I'm behind. My FI thinks I'm nuts for starting everything so early, but you ladies seem to be on top of things! Here's what I've done so far:
          - Researched & booked resort (DJ, flowers, etc)
          - Reserved block of rooms for guests
          - Researching currently locations for Welcome Dinner
          - Almost ready to send out DIY Boarding Pass STDs
          - Hashed out the guest list!
          - Created wedding website
          - Started Registry
          - Designed Logo
          - Spoken with a Travel Agent
          - Found, ordered, and purchased wedding dress
          - Chose BM dresses
          - Sent out Thank You's to BMs
          - Spent countless hours on BDW!

          So, I think that's a good start. I still have so much to do!!!!

            Wow I'm May '09 and I have JUST begun my planning. I've have our wedding website mostly completed and the STDs done but we still haven't pinned down a venue and therefore a date so I am holding off on a lot.

                    Anyone else having people procrastinating on booking? I'm ready to kill people in my FI's family cause they're all saying its to early to book! I would love to start being able to order stuff, but due to not having a head count, I can't!

                    Am I just having a bridezilla moment?

                      Only 1 guest (cheers to my friend B) has reserved a room so far. Yikes... lol. It would be nice to know the numbers asap, but all I am just hoping for is that everyone will meet the Feb 1 RSVP. It's our families' first dw and with so many people and a handful of procrastinators I'm worried things will get a little hectic in the spring!
