        Hi Ladies!
        So I'm back from a very productive trip, I finalized the wedding location!!!! This had become a bit of an issue, because I kept picking places that would not work. But, it's all good now :-)

          Hi Everyone! I'm a December Bride as well! Our date is December 5, 2009. And here is what I have done so far:

          1. Finalized Location- Marriott Frenchmans Reef- St. Thomas, U.S.V.I
          2. Chose MOH, Bridesmaids, Best Man, and Groomsmen
          3. Have the best travel agent EVER- My mom! And yes, she's a real travel agent here in Memphis. I lucked out!
          4. Reserved Ceremony Location
          5. Reserved Reception Location
          6. Reserved Welcome Party/Rehearsal Party Location
          7. Booked air travel for wedding party & photographers
          8. Secured Room Block with hotel
          9. Booked rooms for wedding party & photographers
          10. Found BEST photographers in the whole wide world (rootography.com out of Orlando)
          11. Got engagement pics taken
          12. Purchased my dress
          13. Ordered Bridesmaid dresses
          14. Made and mailed out Boarding Pass STD.. let me know if anyone wants pics
          15. Made wedding website: OurWedding Website

          I think that is it so far. I'm traveling back to St. Thomas over the July 4th holiday to meet with my wedding planner face to face again to discuss food, flowers, centerpieces, music, vows, cake, etc..

          I'm currently looking for:
          -shoes for my dress
          -shoes for the bridesmaid dresses
          -cheap tote bags
          -program fans that don't look like pieces of cardboard with popsicle sticks or 5 pieces of paper that open up to a fan shape.
          -cheap beach towels
          -starting to look for invititations

          I'm so glad that there is a December brides page! Hopefully we can keep each other on track!

          Thanks guys,
          Julie
          Thanks!!
          Julie & Chris

                Congratulations!!! Bet you are excited!!!

                DIY invitations can take up quite a bit of time depending on how picky you are, so start early. A few beer always helps too!

                      I don't mean to bring anyone down but is anyone running into multiple people complaining about everything? They all claim that it is too close to Christmas....but my theory is that they would complain no matter where i had it and no matter when I had it. The ironic part is that I picked December because it is after Hurricane Season and before the peak season when the hotel costs would double. Anyone else going through this? If so, please tell me how to deal with it!
