    It took much longer than expected to make my own but it is worth it in the end. I have gotten several great compliments so far.

      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

        Ya finally a Dec 2009 thread :) our date is Dec. 16/09!
        Here's what I have accomplished so far (it seems things have been put on hold for a little bit cuz of this swine flu business)..
        - chose a resort: Ocean Turquesa (but again, may change if this flu worsens)
        - sent out sdts in February and had most of our guests make deposits
        - ordered the dress :) and bought FI's shirt
        - booked a local photographer
        - decided to do partyflops for favours but have yet to order them
        - decided to do passport invites but deciding whether to send to everyone, even those who won't make it
        - asked my BM and 2 MOH's, found and bought the dresses on the same day!!!
        - my TA is working on a website for her destination wedding clients so that's a bonus!
        - currently looking for gifts for my girls (my FI hasn't really decided re: his GM's)
        For those of you having at home receptions, are you booking your venues/restaurants now?

              Our beach wedding is on the same day as yours. I am looking into buying an insurance policy for the wedding.

                Are you worried about having to cancel the wedding? I never thought about that..so many things to worry about! i am sure we will bump into each other at the resort!! It will be nice to meet other brides :)

They cost a bit more (I'm sure the hotel did a little mark up) but it winds up to be the same price considering shipping international is very costly. Plus, it saves the hassle of us having the get the towels there!

                  Good luck!

                    The deposits for the wedding are non refundable regardless of the circumstances, so it will be to the bride's advantage to have an insurance policy. I still have a lot of time to research before getting one in place.

                      Actually dreams deposits are refundable. We changed are wedding to a different hotel ans dreams sent back our deposit. With out any hassle.
