    I'm a late December bride! I got engaged in June and was gone for most part of June and July, so here's my "checked" list:

    1. Date and place set - Dec. 12, 2009 at Sands resort in Turks and Caicos
    2. STD sent out
    3. Hotel booked
    4. Photographer booked - Ileana Ravasio
    5. Make-up artist booked
    6. Invitations are done, will send them out next week. It's a small wedding - I'm anticipating 20 people.
    7. Musicians booked
    8. Reception dress and shoes are bought. Still looking for a wedding dress and FI's pants/shirt
    9. Welcome bbq and reception site/caterers (Kissing fish) - booked. Still not sure about menu though...
    10. In process of selecting a cake...

    After I already found and booked everything, I finally decided I needed a wedding coordinator - just to be there and keep everything under control, so I don't have to do that. I have a phone-meeting this Monday with one of them, hopefully she's not gonna charge me an arm and leg for it...

    Still needs to be done
    1. Favors and OOT bags
    2. wedding dress
    3. FI wedding band and outfit
    4. .... I know I'm forgetting something... OMG - I need to book tickets! I'm so silly... I gotta get there somehow so we can get married!

          Happy Friday girly girls!

          I mailed my invites today - Woo hoo!!!

          And I found some cube picture frames at Target that I think I am going to use as centerpieces. The link is the inspiration, but I bought ones that are plastic and only cost $4 :)

          Also, posted my BD pics yesterday. Now I have to get crackin and figure out which ones to put in the book. How am I going to keep this a secret for 3 more months?!?!?

                ok girls....I think my FI's parents are booking their trip today! finally! They were worrying me a bit, because I know they can wait til the last minute, sooooooo.....
                I'm leaving home today for a week (for work), so hopefully, I get a phone call today letting me know they are all set! I feel bad for my FI, all the guests that have booked so far, are from my side of the family/friends. ;(

                    Yea Jill! I hope they did book!!!!

                    Isn't it strange how friends totally jump at a DW. This wedding really has proven that you can choose your friends but not your family.

                    It is a good day because I just talked to my dad, and my brothers passport finally got approved. Apparently my brother hadn't paid taxes from his high school/college job and his passport application was denied! OMG, my mom has been freaking out and my dad ended up paying all of his back taxes so he could get the passport! His taxes were 3 times what my parents gave us for the wedding! I feel absolutely awful about all of this and am thinking about giving them back the money they gave us. What a poopy situation

                      I ordered the beach towels today for the OOT bags! They are due to arrive the last week in August. I am excited.
