        Hi Allisa!

        We're date twins! We are getting so close!!! Do you still have a lot to do? Luckily for us, most of the major stuff is now done but we're still working out the little details and such. We are getting hectic trying to coordinate and plan our AHR which we decided to have before the wedding to take advantage of the summer and the outdoors. Hopefully it doesn't rain! Anyways, best wishes to you!

          Hey Grace! France sounds like a lovely place to get married! We are still working out the little details, and I am super behind on my logo, the welcome brochure and I haven't started the programs, menus or table/seating tags yet. I probably should have sent something to our guests about the activities before now... but I was hoping they would have all visited the site. Even my MOH hasn't been to it!
          Oh well!

          I am waiting for my dress to arrive and that is my biggest stress. Everything else will ultimately work itself out I'm sure!

          We leave on the 5th of September... it's coming up!

          We have put our AHR on hold. This ended up being a tough year -as it has for a lot of people- financially, so I have had to re-think the AHR. I'll start planning it once we are home. Kind of prolongs this whole adventure!

            September 2009 bride checking in! Too bad I didn't find this thread earlier!

            Progress: I am still working on the OOT bags and my fiance needs to figure out what he is getting his groomsmen.I need to figure out what I am doing about video for the wedding. At this point, I am pretty sure I just want to buy a video camera, but we need to get on it so we can figure out how to use it before wedding time!

            Other than that, I just need to figure out how I'm going to fit everything into suitcases!

            We leave September 8th, 2009 so its less than a month away. So crazy!

                How about us September brides start putting up our to-do lists. It might help some of us other girls remember some things we have to do! Here's what I can think of off the top of my head.

                Make flower girl basket (I refuse to pay $20+ for that thing.)
                Finish OOT bags
                Make hair/make-up appointment (I'm a professional make-up artist so I may just do that myself.)
                Buy BM gifts
                Engrage FI's band (No idea what I want it to say yet.)
                Reserve time for Meet & Greet
                Get flower girl dress altered
                Book photographer's plane ticket
                Make intinerary for guests
                Finish compliling arrival dates/times
                Make programs (once I decide on the ceremony order and working, that'll be a lot easier!)
                Order bouts and ties for groomsmen
                Make/Order guestbook

                Ok so this list is longer than I thought! Maybe I should get off here and do some work!

                  Thanks! He is doing better, I feel like he will be great by the time of the wedding! So the last day of my current job starts in a few hours (and I'm still up working on wedding stuff). Monday is the beginning of the new job--crazy! So wishing I could take a day or two off, but its just not an option right now. No worries it'll all get done! :)

                    Funny I was coming here to post the same thing! What does everyone have left. My wedding is 3 weeks from today and I have TONS left, but I'm a procrastinator so its no surprise.
                    • Finish welcome book
                    • Finish shampoos for OOT bags (we are bottling our own with our labels...John cleaned out a bunch of trial size bottles for me, but now I need to fill& label)
                    • Finalize ceremony script
                    • Find sand ceremony supplies
                    • Final dress fitting
                    • Find accessories
                    • Make sure shoes work!
                    • Finish coordinating OOT bags--I have everything I believe, but trying to figure out how I will pack it
                    • Find some clothes for the trip! I have no shorts!
                    • Finish petal cones (most are done, but the glue dots aren't holding, need to use something stronger
                    • Finalize music (meeting singer tonight)
                    • Learn how to create a playlist in itunes-haha, no time to try! :)


                    Okay I know some of you may think this is a ton, but honestly it doesn't feel like as much as I thought. Haha.

                      I'm getting married September 18 and I leave September 11. I am so excited. I'm keeping the wedding very simple, so I don't have a lot to do. Here's what I have to do:

                      welcome letter to guests (not even sure what I'm doing at all)
                      guestbook (something different and fun)
                      make donation in lieu of wedding favor, make cards for table settings
                      buy accessories (jewelry)
                      buy wedding day makeup
                      figure out which hair style I want
                      a few more outfits :)
                      deposit for La Barcaza boat

                      I think that's it! :)

                      Good luck and congrats to all of you ladies!
