What did you end up doing for yours?

Here's what's been done so far:
Venue selected/Contract signed
BMs + GMs asked and accepted
STDs order (will go out in the mail tomorrow)
Website up and running
Dress scouting trip booked
Still to be done:
Register (FI is dragging his feet)
Select BM attire
Ring shopping (my favorite)
OOTs and other DIYs
Help Groom with attire (he'll need it)
and a lot more but that can't be tackled yet
My biggest concern right now is how the economy will effect my guests. In the month since I booked my venue, it has really been going downhill with all these layoffs. As far as I know, everyone invited is still doing okay, but people are scared right now to spend money.
But trying to stay positive and I'm getting so excited. I wish it wasn't 9 months away. I'm trying to NOT talk about my planning when I see people because they are probably so not wanting to hear about it all the time...but it's hard.

That is a great attitude. I have been concerned also about the economy. I think it will reduce the number of guests, but I just remind myself that not everyone can make it and I knew this when I choose to have a DW. It is now just that even less will make it.

I'm hoping the economy will show signs of hope right around the time we all send out invitations!

I got really lucky and got it for half price in her sample sale (only $800!!!!) It's a Nicole Miller crinkled taffeta gown...you can find them online.
So I have put out the message to all our invited guests that they need to book with their deposit by the end of the month or there is a chance our group pricing might increase (something to do with the Canadian dollar being in the crapper right now)...which is a good thing for me so I have a better idea on how many people to expect so I can start working on OOT bags and all that stuff.
Get this...my FI's brother is getting married in July, and I had a "thing" with his fiance a few months ago (a long story but basically after me & my FI decided on a DW, she changed her mind from a local wedding to a DW...and she wanted to have it 7 months before ours! I had it out with her over that! In the end she's now having it fairly local after a lot of pressure from multiple sources)...anyway, I just found out that she is so mad at me over this that she is not inviting me to their wedding and she skipped the family Christmas because she doesn't want to see me! What a beeatch! I could care less about her having a hate-on for me, but I feel so bad about my FI's mom...she's going to be so upset! She is SO excited both her boys are getting married this year (finally...they're 40 and 37 yrs!!!) and this is going to kill her!
My FI asked me if I would be willing to extend an olive branch, but I'm not sure what to do...I want to because of the family, but I don't want to because I feel its like I'd be rewarding bad behaviour! And I don't feel badly about how I reacted to her at all! (I admit I could have handled it differently but hindsight is 20/20 and you don't mess with a bride-to-be and her wedding plans!).
What to do, what to do...I'm just happy with the progress in my own plans...286 days to go!!!
It's tough to be the bigger person, but that is what it likely will take in this situation. Wouldn't you rather it be you?
