Hi everyone! I am so glad to find this thread! I was just freaking out this morning that I had no idea what I was suppose to be doing 6 months from the wedding! We are getting married Nov 6,2009 at Majestic Colonial in Dominican Republic. Here is what is going on with me:


Things that are done:

-Wedding dress is bought (actually ordered online from Neiman Marcus and not technically a wedding dress but GORGEOUS and simple)

-Rooms and flight book for me and future hubs

-STDs sent out in Jan

-Most of my immediate fam and best friends have booked (or at least reserved a room)

-Wedding website is up


Things to do:

-find invitations

-find something for future hubs to wear

-correspond with resort about flowers,cake, reception (all of which i have no idea about)

-find a veil

-start buying OOT bags

-figure out how to get married at the courthouse before hand

-ceremony music?


-wedding colors?

-stop stressing about how long my to do list is


It helps to read what you ladies are up to!

Cherie do you have wc? I so she'll most likely handle all the court house business. Also you need to cross stressing out off your list bc now you've found BDW and you will be able to get almost all of your questions answered here.

OK last night I started what I thought would be the daunting task of doing my DIY travel mugs. But actually it wasn't. I cut all the paper and I cut out over 50 sticker monogram circles (while watching Golden Girls of course) now tonight I just have to start putting everything together. I'll prolly get FI to help me either put the monograms on the paper or insert the paper into the mugs. He was really helpful tying ribbon for my homemade soaps lol (he'd die if he knew I told you all he helps me with the wedding DIY projects haha).

We picked the invites last night. I have to tell you very little is the way I originally pictured it. But I'm lovin' none the less! Still working on the dress thing. Ans am a little upset because I gave my MOH cart blanch ( I think that is how you spell it) as far as the dress goes. I showed her the color I want about 2 months ago and she has found nothing. I hate waiting!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
