August 2009 brides
Posted 29 January 2009 - 03:50 PM
Welcome to anyone I haven't said Hello to yet!!
And.. I resized theimages twice and they are still too big; so I apologize in advance!
Okay, so I have been a busy little bee... I have done the following -
*Bought my dress and booked all my fitting appointments:
*Started talking to a the designer about customizing mine and my BM's hair flowers; they will look something like this .. with the white goose feather base with accent feathers in blue mainly, gold and brown. Mine will be a bit smaller than the pic and mostly with blue accents and the BM's will be even smaller with more of the gold and brown with the blue:
*Picked out the BM Dresses (the VS convertible dress):
*Ordered our Invitations; they should be arriving today:
*Bought our OOT Bags (and decided upon a lot of stuff to purchase ...)
Also...we bought First Aid Kits, Mini Spanish for Dummies Books and some other little stuff for the bags.
*Booked my BD Shoot for March 6th with some local BDW ladies.
*Still going strong on Weight Watchers online and joining the local YMCA tomorrow with FI.
I think that's everything. Let's all check back in ladies. I can't believe it's coming this soon. Now, I just have to figure out how I am going to afford everything when it comes time to pay.!!

I just joined the site and came across this thread! I too am an August 2009 bride! We still do not know the date just yet. We were planning on doing the traditional church wedding and reception in 2010 and JUST changed our minds! I think a DW will be so much better but now I am stressing out since I have so little time! I just looked through all of your posts and I feel a little stressed. I don't know if I will be able to get everything done. We are going to St. Lucia and I plan on just doing everything through the resort. I really just want something low key. Here is what I have done so far:
1. Got a travel agent- working with TA Jennifer now to set date and book rooms & flights
2. Got the dress!!! I bought it for the church wedding but luckily it will still work!
Sadly, that is about it! I may need a ton of help from you all! I am not big into weddings so I am pretty lost here. I do have a major question to ask; since we are so close do I still need to do STDs or just do invites I know what invitations I want to use and I am just waiting on finalizing the date before I order them. Any thoughts?

MeRocket -Thanks!!! The invites actually came in the other day. We are sending them out this week. I was so shocked when I found them as I was having a hard time locating something in my colors that was niec.
JWeldon - Welcome!! And, don't stress. Granted, my wedding is going to be super simple; but the resort DOES pretty much take care of the details. If I were you, I would skip the STD's and go straight to invites; but I would do it soon to allow people enough time to save $$ etc...
How is everyone else doing?
