      I'm a November bride! I'm getting married November 5th at the Azul Sensatori, Mayan Riviera, Mexico! So far I've sent out the STD's, chosen the wedding party (but haven't formally asked them yet), selected our colours.... turquoise and brown, decided on a photographer (but I still have to pay a deposit), and bought my dress! I wasn't planning on getting my dress so early but there was a sale with up to 80% off and I just couldn't turn that down. I honestly don't feel like I have much to do because we are going for a very casual wedding. We are not doing a private reception and I have no idea how many people are coming, but I for sure will have under 20.

          Jess- I also read 6 months for a DW in my Knot planning book to get out invites.

          Welcome Lupe- we are wedding date twins!

            I am actually sending mine out on Monday... just because we have a deposit date set by my TA for March 7, 09 so at least by then we know our numbers... then they can continue to pay for their trip all the way up to 60 days prior to departing... so that is my reason for sending so early.

              Not earlier than 6 months...hopefully by then I'll have a good idea of the yeses and maybes as those are who I'm going to send more formal invites to...

                  I know a lot of girls on here borrow them from other BDW members - but I'm not sure where you buy them

                    If you google "bouquet jewelry" a couple of sites will come up.

                      Hello!
                      I am another November 2009 bride!!!... My name is Dana and I am getting married on November 19, 2009 in Los Cabos at Dreams. I have been a slacker at work and wedding planning up a storm so…

                      Done n done!
                      -The budget... minus the FI parents contributions, if any! We will see how that goes?! yep we still have to have 'that talk'
                      -Date secured at Dreams resort- Working with Mariana as a WC
                      -Asked all 5 BM and 5 GM with accepts!
                      -Ordered my dress and put deposit down... my heart just skipped a beat I am so excited!!! 6 months to make though.
                      -Save the Dates done and mailed out
                      -Invitation wording done just waiting for travel rate info. These will probably be ready and mailed out for June 1, 2009 at the latest?! When are you ladies sending out the invitations
                      -Bought BM dresses and gifts for my girly's! I got a steal of a deal on coach purses to match their dresses and purdy MAC lip gloss for the wedding day.
                      -Bought wedding day Shoes & ear rings
                      -Waiting for quotes on flowers, cake, DJ/ Trio etc
                      -Booked Photographer- Juan Carlos
                      -Booked Suzanne Morel for hair & Makeup for Mom, BM, and me.
                      -Picked colors... staying pretty neutral with champagne colored BM dresses and white flowers with Orchids (which brings in a hue of pink) for bouquets and then accents in vibrant green (Green Cymbidium Orchids for GM and hanging flower clutters on aisle chairs) Well that sounds like an interesting combo but I have photos, its very beachy and I think it will come together nicely (fingers n toes crossed)
                      -Picked songs for the walk down the aisle, father/ daughter dance and 1st dance.
                      -Picked Grooms and GM destination tuxs.
                      -Wrote vows
                      -Bought thank you cards

                      ToDo:
                      -Book DJ, Florist, and Cake…plus decide on fire dancers and ceremony trio/ guitarist. I need price quotes though!!!
                      -Source out lanterns and blankets for Reception.
                      -GM gifts
                      -Choose menu items and get menu stationary made
                      -Wording for programs
                      -Booking our trip
                      -Buy wedding bands
                      -Wedding day timeline

                      HmMm probably forgetting a lot but here’s the basics! Thanks a bunch though! I couldn’t have done all this without your ladies advice and recommendations!
