scubadiva - welcome! i can't wait to hear more about how your planning is going... i am so intrigued by cruise weddings! how do you pick where at your location to get married? is it tough to coordinate everything? do you get to have a private reception on the boat? sorry for all the questions, i just think it's such a neat idea!!
oh, and christina, i have had the same thing happen to me too with the last page of threads! glad i'm at least in good company!

Tara- Don't worry about what you don't have done yet, I still have a ton to do and worry I'm behind schedule, too. It's just a matter of time, I just think that by the time April comes everything will be done and the stress will go along with it! How was your engagement party? Get any cool gifts? FI and I haven't had one and I think at this time, it's too late. Our friends still ask when we'll have one but I don't know.. the moments passed lol.
scubadiva- my friend is thinking about having a cruise wedding, too. how exciting I've thought about having one but I have family travelling from all over US, I just figured we meet at one spot and stay there, does that make sense?
my ticker still says 9 months

I think we're all about the same when it comes to where we're at woith planning. Wome a little more, some a little less - some did different things...depends on what you want to do, too.
Don't Stress - that's part of having the DW, so you don't have to as much!
PS - I've had the same thing happen with going to the end of the threads...

Ebredhawk - Yes, that makes sense, with tax season and all! It must feel good to be continuously scratching things off your wedding "to do" list, eh?
Dobauvelt - The engagement party was sooo much fun! We got engaged in February, and had it early June. I really don't think there are any rules regarding when you have it, where you have it, or who holds it, so if you want to have one, you should! Our wedding party simply rented a pavilion at my parents' campground, and about 50 of our closest friends and family came for drinks, games, and a BBQ. It was very low key, but super fun, and anyone staying over could just book a campsite and pitch a tent. We didn't get any gifts, but we asked the wedding party to put that specifically on the E-Vite. We didn't want people to have to spend even MORE, since the people that came are the ones that we expect at the wedding! We did have a poker tournament with a $20 buy-in, and a 50/50, where half of the proceeds of each went to the winner, and the other half to us, and we ended up getting $300 for the wedding fund.
Scubadive - A cruise wedding sounds stellar! How many people are you inviting? I've never been on a cruise, but I've definitely heard good things, I'm sure your guests will have a blast!
Right now I'm kind of in the creative stages, and trying to think up games or things that we can organize around the resort, to keep people happy. We went to a destination wedding in 2008, and they had games at the reception, poker tournament, sunset cruise. A lot of things planned, and since the groom is now one of our 2 best men, I don't want to copy them! Does anyone have any ideas of a game to play at the reception, or other things that could be organized throughout the week, besides excursions through the resort?

I too am a April 2010 bride (April 22, 2010)! So far we've signed and sent off the wedding contract for our Moon Palace wedding... but that's about it! We're looking into photographers right now and I think we've decided on Tammara (Tamm's Photos - Wedding Photography Intro) I heard she's good and I've read some great reviews, right now I'm still trying to talk my FI into it. Any other april 2010 brides using her?
Congrats to everyone and good luck with the planning!
