      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!

        Wow I was afraid I was behind and should be doing more but I guess I'm right on point so far I
        picked location
        sent out STD
        Made deposit
        found my dress
        MOH picked out her dress
        picked out my invites
        have 12 booked so far.

        I'm aiming for 15lbs by August

              Hey everyone!!! Just wanted to know when you are planning on sending out your invitations? I have no clue when to do this!!! 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!!!
