My FI comes from a very religious Catholic background...now he is the one who was ALL for the destination wedding but I cannot even begin to tell you how much of a headache it has been listening to his mom go on and on about us not getting married in a Catholic church.
We have decided to do a very intimate ceremony in the Catholic church once we return from Jamaica - just a symbolic blessing of the marriage really - I haven't thought too much about what I would wear, etc., just that it would be my parents, his mom and my grandmother at the church.
The logistics of it are something we should probably plan out more, but he and I both are only concerned with the Catholic church recognizing the marriage and apparently so long as the priest blesses your marriage, it's okay....anyway, that's what we'll be doing!

I know! I'm freaking out that my wedding is so close!!!
Actually, I would love if you girls could go over my checklist and see if I'm missing something!!!
Here's my Done list! I'm putting this first because it makes me less nervous!
-Photographer (Brian Nejedy)
-Videographer (Noel Sylvester works with Brian)
-DJ (Paul with Sound Illusion)
-Emailed Kerry dinner options
-Cake with Margaret
-Save the Dates - done and mailed out
-Bridesmaids dresses (they've been ordered)
-My dress (last dress fitting a couple of weeks ago! Staying at my mom's house for safe-keeping!)
Still to do:
-Flowers (working with Rosemarie but still haven't finalized bouquets) Also, don't know whether to do corsages for mom and future mother in law?
-Mail out invitations (once they arrive)
-Pick out songs and send them to DJ
-Choose centerpieces (I'll write a different thread about this)
-Possible welcome bags?
-Arrange transportation (don't know whether to just let the hotel do this or have Courtney do it...)
Alright, so what am I missing?!

The only thing I'll probably be bringing is the tablecloths for the reception (I don't want plain white for that--and it'll only be like 2) and maybe some raffia fans for the wedding ceremony for the guests. Stuff that I won't be too upset about if something were to be lost or forgotten.
I'm narrowing in on a rehearsal dinner site! I'm getting excited!

As for counterpieces, what kind were you thinking of doing? What i was planning was to take the vases from here and just buy fresh flowers there and arrange it the night before. It can be a fun thing to do with my mom and my BMs....but my only worry is....what if i don't find flowers in my color? Also, i never thought about it but Taovandel brought up good points. So...i don't know, i might need to think hard on that.

Happy final planning to you!!!
rydm - what if you don't find what you like and is it going to be ok to pick flowers from anywhere?

Taovandel, what are you thinking rehearsal dinner-wise? I'm still deciding as well and would like to finalize my decision very soon!
Rydm, I was actually thinking of white trays with candles, rocks, and starfish - I wish I knew how to attach a jpeg image here because I would love for you guys to see it! I also came across a great idea to do away with the plain white tablecloths, which is to put about 3" ribbons in your colors (mine are fuschia and tangerine) across the tables - looks so pretty! I will try to find a way to attach it - if not I'll just put in a word document! The only problem will be if it's windy, but I'm sure there will be a way to tie them down!
Taovandel, I am definitely doing fans too! I love them and the way they look!
Oh and rydm, the videographer's contact info is:
He has been great with contact via email and my photographer has worked with him and I hear that's really important!
Big3n09: I haven't contacted him yet - I still need to do so!
Thanks again ladies! This helps keep me organized and on top of things!
