I wanted to work on decorations, but its hard to get a visual for a place you have never seen. Are you using a DJ or band. I was thinking of using a DJ, but wasn't sure how good the resorts is.
Hi Mrs. Greene - My advice - get as much done asap as possible. Don't worry about final numbers, just guesstimate and get it done. The last few months before the wedding are INSANE. I underestimated how much I had to do and pulled a lot of all-nighters to complete everything. I also had a lot of DIY stuff though too. There are lots of to-do lists to be found on this site and others - get one and edit it for yourself.

My fiance likes the suits your husband and groomsmen wore, can you please provide more details about their suits...Is it the regular linen suit, what color linen did they order, did they wrinkle badly? I like the weight of Linen but hate how it wrinkles and looks messy at the end of the day.
MrsDeloatch: What color did your fiance get?
Thank you for any info you can provide!
Thanks Prettysparklie!! We did the standard $99 lineen suit, we got English beige, which was a light greyish/beige. I originally wanted grey suits for the guys but because I didnt start shopping until the fall/winter I couldn't find anything and the linen didn't come in grey. But they looked really great. The pants were wrinkled by like 1 am but were fine for most of the day/night. We brought one of those portable steamers and the guys steamed their suits before putting them on.
