Hi girls! Great to see this thread, I am a little late finding the forums, but here I am.

 

My wedding is 12-28-09 at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef in St Thomas.

 

So far, I have:

1. Purchased a dress

2. Found shoes for the dress

3. Ordered and received invitations

4. Sent out "Save the Date" postcard and magnets

5. Collected guests' mailing address

6. Made the website

7. Ordered bridesmaid dresses

8. Registered at Macy's and Bed, Bath, and Beyond

9. Had a wedding shower last weekend and sent out thank you cards

 

Still a lot more to do, but I think we have a handle on it. The only thing I am worried about is that I just found out that I have to have major surgery Oct 26th, just eight weeks before the wedding. I just hope that I will be recovered by then. Our honeymoon is chartering a sailboat to sail the BVIs through Jan 4th, and I will need to be in shape to work my half of the sailing!

 

I love all of your posts, they have given me some great ideas! Keep them coming!

Welcome Amie! That really stinks about your surgery. Just make sure to take it easy afterwards so you can be healed for your wedding and honeymoon. (I totally love that you are sailing for the honeymoon.)

Amie, sorry to hear about the timing of your surgery. Listen to Autumn and just don't do anything too stressful before the wedding!! get as much done before surgery as you can!

 

 

BTW girls - my friend just told me she rcvd the evite for my bach party in Nov! I guess I didn't get the evite - maybe there is something I'm not supposed to know about....

Jill - I hear ya on the evite for the bach party. Mine is next weekend (we wanted to do it before our legal day) and I don't know anything about it! I have a plane ticket and will be flying with a friend, but that's all I know! It's kinda funny how we plan and plan and plan our weddings, but know nothing about the bach parties :) As long as my girlies are there and we can get crazy I will be happy friday.gif

 

 

Also I heart your new siggy pic love.gif

I love my siggy pic! we were all bridesmaids in our friends wedding in June. the groom is a firefighter so he had a truck come to the venue. we also have a pic of all of us girls hang on for dear life to a golf cart (because the wedding was at a golf course) - hahaha!

Hi Amie,

I can sympathize with you, I just went through major surgery a little over a week ago and I have scars to prove it :) I say don't worry about it too much, i agree, get everything done before hand. You don't want to rush recovery---trust me! I was miserable for the first 5 or 6 days. Things get better though and you will feel at least 75% before you know it :)

not to switch gears, but....

 

I just rcvd my bachelorette party invite!

It said, "Jill is Getting Married!" and it was weird to see that all typed up and emailed out. Isn't that weird?! I've spent so many days planning all my other friend's weddings, and now that it's my turn, it's weird to be the one NOT planning it.

It really does make you feel special, doesn't it?

 

This is going to be a couple of crazy months!

 

I downloaded that excel spreadsheet someone posted that had the wedding checklist and I thought that I had plenty of time, and now I'm actually behind in a few items - not much, but still shocked me!

I haven't checked in in awhile sorry!

 

I havent done much lately but I did get new earings at lunch for the wedding! yay! I still am in desperate need of shoes tho.

 

You girls will have so much fun at your bach. parties! I had my big one in vegas (with 16 of my friends) in july and im having one here in calgary Oct 3rd with another 20 friends (some that can't come to the wedding and some who couldnt come to vegas). I am like you Jill, and used to planning everything so it was so so hard for me to not be involved.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
