December 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

I see all these other threads for different months but not December! Wanted to see if there were any others out there?

And if so, what have you done so far in regards to planning?

Where and When are you getting married?

 

I am getting married at the Dreams Resort in Huatulco on December 29th, 2009. We fly out on christmas day (gasp!) and the guests fly home on New Years Day (another gasp!), but we will fly home on the 8th :)

 

So far all I have really done is bought my dress, FI's suit, rehearsal dress, sent out STD's, made a wedding website, had most of our guests put down a deposit, picked out bridesmaid dresses and groomsmans outfits.

Hi Nadine, our wedding is in December too and I was looking for a thread dedicated for December 2009 brides. Thanks for giving us a head start. :)

 

We are getting married in Riviera Maya and be home before the high season.

 

These are the things I have done:

1. Purchased a dress but now thinking about getting a different one

2. Getting an estimate on the alterations cost

3. Booked a photographer

4. Sent out "Save the Date" email

5. Collecting guests' mailing address

6. Picked out a design for the wedding invitations

7. Purchased the materials for making the wedding invitations

8. Started working on the wedding web site

Hi Ladies, another December 2009 Bride here!

We are getting married Dec 31 in Negril, Jamaica. The exact location should be finalized this weekend (hopefully). But OMG, I am so far behind!!!! I alwayd wanted a DW in Jamaica (my family is from there), but my FI said no. After his first trip to JA in Feb, he said he wanted to get married there, so it has been a last minute thing.

 

Things I've done:

1. Found my dress (not ordered yet)

2. Got a wedding planner

3. Finalized a list of possible locations

 

To do List:

1. EVERYTHING!!!!!!

 

I am really freaked out about being behind after reading so many posts. I am looking at STD templates and will begin working on them when a location is finalized and send the out ASAP.

 

Hope we can get some more Dec 09 brides to post here, the Nov 09 thread has like 28 pgs!

Hi Karla,

 

One thing at a time and you will get there. Once you decide on a venue, the rest will be easier.

6. Started on my boarding pass STD/invites (yay!)

Since I am getting started so late, I think I will take the idea of another BDW bride and send magnet STDs with my boarding pass invites. Not sure though, maybe STD now and official invite in August? What do you guys think?
