We're getting married in Longboat Key, Florida at the Hilton.
I'm still debating on sending out invites, which I know I need to do very soon if I am going to do them. But for the most part everybody that is attending will be family. Our closest friends won't be able to attend for various reasons.
bridesmaid's dresses purchased
about 1/2 way done with OOT bags
hotel and plane tickets taken care of
flower girls dresses picked
steel drum band booked
ugh after writing out what I've actually got done it doesn't seem like I've done much!

I'm a November bride as well, and it appears I've been doing things a bit backwards!
-We got our invites out (DIY - what a hoot! Perhaps I'll post a pic on another thread) a couple of weeks ago. We sent out about 140 (Jewish FI with a 2 moms!) but are only expecting about 30-40 guests.
-Our website has been up and running for about 2 months Welcome To LaBre Life CommUniOne CeLaBretion Wedding Website!
-We have a GREAT TA (Lindsay, from this site), but no one is booked yet except for my parents and sister/brother-in-law. Our wedding isn't even confirmed, as we don't have 10 rooms booked yet! I'm not too worried however, as we're getting married on a Monday, which, for some weird reason, isn't the most popular day of the week for a wedding! (lol)
-I have the photographers narrowed down to 3...... Paulina Ulloa, Elizabeth Lloyd, or Alfonso Lepe. Thoughts? I still haven't heard feedback from anyone who has worked with Alfonso. I hope to have my decision made in the next couple of days. I've also heard that the Riu doesn't like outside photographers, and it may be necessary that they come as a guest?
-I'm going to start looking at dresses later this week, which I think was one of my biggest concern after reading this thread. A lot of you ladies sure are on the ball!!!
-The other big concern was the bridal party. I still haven't asked anyone other than my sister (who accepted). I am getting 2 new sisters out of this marriage deal - neither of whom I'm close to (FI's family lives on the other side of the country) As well....I have 3 very good friends I would love to have. Is that crazy to have such a large wedding party for a small wedding? They are all shaped extremely differently too. From very short and heavy, to very tall, to tiny. Any ideas for dresses with such a challenge?
-No idea about oot bags yet, as it is entirely unclear as to who will be joining us, but I've started gathering ideas.
Up to this point, that's all I have!
Guess I had better get moving!!
Thanks for all the insights and ideas ladies!! I love it!
ps - Ashley, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, but am glad to hear of what a long, full, and great life she had. Surely an inspiration!
