      Thanks! I recommend finding a good designer online and then going to the store to try them on. The ones i liked initially online were not the best looking on my body type (top heavy) but when I tried on the sweetheart top and let myself try on dresses that didn't look like my style, thats how I found this one! I loved it on me and then I just went with it. When you find one that you love, stop looking. You will drive yourself crazy second guessing it. don't even look at other dresses---too many options!

            Hi ladies,
            I just joined the site, so Im still trying to figure everything out (like trying to download my pic..though for some reason its not working) lol.
            I am getting married December 5th at the Excellence Playa Mujeres. And I JUST STARTED gathering ideas..you know, Ive come to realize event planning is just not my thing! lol. Thank God I have my sister and her BF helping me out.

            Save the dates are in the mail this week.
            Invitations hopefully will be ordered next week.
            Dress shopping is scheduled for the 1st week in July
            Photographer--Im still on the fence about this one. I have an email out to the resort photographer to get more of his profile...but I have quotes already for 2 other ones.
            Favors will be purchased when I get to Mexico..tequila bottles
            Currently working on a monogram for the favor tags
            and I still havent decided if I need or want to do centerpieces or just purchase them them from the resort.
            So as you can see..I have a LOOONG way to go! lol
            Anyway good luck and thanks for starting the thread!

              Hey Ladies! I just came across this page and I am relieved to see that there are plenty of other Dec '09 brides on here. I am getting married December 4th, 2009 ( it was going to be Dec 5th, but our resort only does one wedding a day and it was already taken). We have been engaged since October and so far I have:

              Things I have done:
              1. Chose the location - Iberostar Grand Rose Hall
              2. Chose our Bridemaids, MOH and Best Man, Groomsmen
              3. Created a wedding website - used weddingannouncer.com
              4. Purchased my wedding gown and tiara - Kenneth Pool
              5. Booked our photographer - Sungold Photography
              6. Hired our travel agent - Hazel Boone-Someday Vacations
              7. Made and sent out STDs - Letter, Response Cards, & Magnet
              8. Site Visit-Went for 3 nights in May to check everything out and meet with the WC and florist...they and the hotel were AMAZING!
              9. Picked out centerpieces - Conch Shells used as vases with flowers
              10. Bought my BMs and MOH their shoes - Rampage sandals for $25 each on sale from $40 at Macys!
              11. Got monograms from Sarah to use on everything
              12. Purchased some stuff to make decorations for cocktail hour and buffet

              I am now working on making a photo scrapbook to place everyones polaroid pictures in from the reception.
              WE WERE SO BLESSED TO HAVE A PERFECT WEDDING WEEKEND FROM START TO FINISH!

                Welcome!!!
                It is definitely overwhelming---I don't think i could do this full time...very time consuming! No worries though---once you get the dress you will feel better---thats what helped me.
