Hi Ladies,

I am also considering doing the BL5 on here... It seems like great motivation and accountability! We all have 8 months to lose the pounds; so this will be great to get us on track early.

 

How is everyone's planning going? Any updates?

 

I am hopefully (fingers crossed) going to buy my dress next week and decide on the BM dresses and colors.

 

I have ordered a bunch of sample invitations; I am just waiting to get them.

 

Honestly, I haven't done much else as I was really sick in the hospital 2 weeks ago and I'm still recovering. Great timing huh?

 

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

I am going to order mine today--all 250 of them (we are combining our AHR and wedding invites). Let me know when you are planning to do this or if you have already mailed them! Thanks

You August Brides are so on top of it! I am going to post here just to get your updates and to try and stay on track. I am getting married July 24th, Jacilyn pointed me to this thread and the July 2009 thread - I honestly don't know how I haven't come across them yet!

 

Here's my scoop -

 

I have been on this site since I got engaged 2 months ago and I feel like I am SO behind. My mom passed away a few years ago and I don't have any sisters, so I am relying on the expertise of this site to stay on track.

 

I got engaged on October 25th and since then have done the following

 

Booked location - Dreams Los Cabos, Ceremony on the beach.

Chose Date - July 24, 2009

Gotten Travel Agent - Tammy

Working on Room Block at Dreams w Tammy

Booked Photographer - Jerome from Mango Weddings

Almost Booked a DJ - Francisco from Baja Audio and also DJ's at Mango Deck on the Beach in Downtown Cabo

Wedding Website is up and running - needs dates and details added and we go along

Save the Dates should be here any day, envelopes are addressed and ready to send out so that should be a quick turn around

Going Dress and BM Dress shopping this weekend

Started working on DIY invites

Started gathering items for OOT bags

 

Keep this thread going so I stay on pace!

You're supposed to email them out 2-3 months in advance, but for a destination wedding I think 5 months. I mailed mine out like 10 months in advance, but I already knew who was coming and they were all anxious so I sent them out. I haven't done my AHR cause we haven't really decided on an exact date yet.

I sent out my STD's back in October... But, I did include all the booking information on my STD's.
I am still trying to find the perfect invites; but I am aiming on trying to get them out by the end of March.

I think thats fine. Tickets are so expensive out of Montana that most of our guests were wanting all the info to book right away instead of waiting.

 

Post pics once you find the PERFECT invites!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?

    • Hello Jania! are you bringing any external vendor for your wedding?
