    Hi ladies; I am most likely a Nov 2009 bride also. Seriously considering Nov 14, 2009 at the Paradisus Riviera Cancun resort.

    Dress bought
    Earrings bought
    Bridesmaid gifts bought (still some personalizing to do, but have the gifts)
    Flower girl basket purchased and decorated
    Ring Bearer pillow purchased and decorated
    Groom tie and pocket-square purchased
    Champagne flutes purchased by future-in-laws from Ireland
    Guestbook purchased and decorated
    Colors: all shades of pink (fuschia if I had my way), white, and black/gray
    Veil: my something borrowed from one of my best friends
    Bridal party picked, but not asked yet

    To DO
    Bridesmaid dresses
    Location & Date
    Groomsmen gifts
    Flowers (think I will order from angelsaccents.com)
    Buy more suitcases
    Buy thank you cards
    Ask bridal party officially
    Centerpieces (not sure if we will be doing anything extra)
    Groomsmen attire
    Buy Groom suit
    Make share picture cards
    OOT bags?
    OOT contents?
    Welcome letter
    Save the Dates
    Music selections
    Wedding Day timeline
    Estimate of Guest count
    Wedding Lingerie

    WOW... seeing it all in writing is a little stressful; I feel behind the game compared to you ladies! I am glad I have found you and look forward to learning from you all. Congrats to you all!

      That is what I was originally thinking, but I have read that linen pants wrinkle very easily. Thoughts?

        Hi Ladies and congratulations!

        I was a November 2008 bride in Puerto Vallarta. If I can be of any assistance, please let me know! I may sound partial, but YES - I totally agree that November is the best time to get married!

        Happy planning!

          Well, I found my dress! I think I am going to have a lady in town make the dress. I have never attached a picture so I am not sure if it will show up.

The only thing is we had to put more of a deposit down because it wasn't a charter flight so you actually have to pay for all of your flight upfont and then a deposit for the resort. Just thought I'd mention it because I noticed you're from Chicago and that's where we fly out of.
            Thanks! I'll check Funjet.

            Also - USA3000 if you wait for their public rates for Nov. if you book air and hotl separately I got it cheaper because I got the flights this past November for $300 per person. Just a possiblity. I think booked the hotel (w/ free transfers) through apple and got a great deal!

              Thats awesome about your dress! I can't open the attachement however... that sucks! I know I was so excited to put the deposit on my dress on the 17th!! I still have to get pics of it to post it on here for you all!! I also just puchased my sand ceremony stuff... and I was trying to find a way that I would stop the sand from leaking when we bring it home and you know those green half moon styrofoam things? It fits perfectly in the top! I will just have to tape it shut... so if you are looking to find something to stop the sand from leaking.. good choice.. from Walmart only 97cents! And my vase was 3$!! Oh and I got my cake topper too!!!

              Also just found out that I will be having my third bridesmaid after all... my fiance has 2 sisters one of them wasn't going to be able to come... and now they can!!! So excited about that! They already have their dresses picked out.. just need to order them now!!! So exciting!!

                      Hi ladies! I too am a November 2009 bride and after reading what everyone has accomplished, I'm feeling behind! We've only been engaged a month, though, so maybe it's not so bad.

                      At least the save-the-dates went out yesterday and my fiance promises to choose his groomsmen this weekend. In my head, I have the wedding 75% planned.
