Gregsbride, What did you decide for a photographer?
So, we picked out the BM dresses today and we have those ordered. It's the short "pocket" dress from Davids Bridal. (If your familiar with it) We decided on "pool" blue. Sorry I have no clue how to upload pictures. I'm glad that's out of the way.
Also, while we were there I saw this beautiful necklace that I liked and my mother in law insisted that she buy it for me. I declined, but she kept insisting. The problem is that I haven't picked out my dress yet. So I'm a little worried. But I figure "Oh well, it's a really pretty necklace, it's pearls and diamonds can you really go wrong?" I'm really not that worried about it. She was trying to do something nice for me and it is a beautiful necklace. Right?

Taylorbride - to upload a picture, type your post in the Advanced post section and at the top where all the little icons are there is one that is a rectangle with a little mountain rage in it - if you click on it, it is for inserting a picture - usually pictures that are hosted on photobucket or another hosting site that will give you the code to paste in. The other way is to use the paperclip and attach a photo.
Megan24 - for the siggy - make sure you check off the "Insert New Signature Picture" box. That was my problem when I started.

Another April 2010 bride! We are getting married on April 12, 2010 in Roatan, Bay Islands. Yes, I know that is in Honduras. We booked it prior to the Zelaya debocle but after monitoring the political climate we have decided to continue forward. Our desire was for a destination low key wedding that was more focused around spending 7 days with our closest friends and relatives.
There is very little I actually need to do since it is a very turn key wedding. We sent out (very large) STD magnets out in June and had the wedding website up since before the "official" proposal. We've been together over 5 years - at that point a proposal is never a suprise. :-)
We found that our unique location and very affordable package attracted early RSVPs and currently have 22 booked. Our wedding website requires visitor log in every time you enter the site so that way I can tell who is looking at it and how frequently. It's been a great way to monitor excitement and potential RSVPs without having to hound the guests.
I bought my dress a few weeks ago - literally off the rack. I swear it was on sale because it looked hidious on the hanger. I doubt anyone tried it on. For some reason it attracted me, even though I didn't know it was on sale, and the minute I put it on I knew it was the right one. Then I saw the price and I bought it the same day thinking even if I changed my mind there was no way I was leaving this dress at the boutique.
I wasn't planning on having attendants but here I am a month later with two BMs and refusing to name one of them a MOH. We are going with an eco-adventure theme so I'm not sending out formal invitations other than what went out with the STD magnets. We force everyone to our website and that seems to have worked.
I'm very glad I found this thread today because I've been overwhelmed by the forum threads on this site. Lots of great ideas and I can't wait to see everyone's plans and ideas move along.
Congratulations to all of you!

This is great to have a thread just for this special month.
We are having the wedding on April 15, 2010 but haven't sent anything out to our potential guests yet as the wedding date was just provided two days ago.
We have gone through to get a group rate from the travel provider to get a better package deal. We had to pay a deposit of $ 200.00 for 10 people in order to hold the spot. My Mom has paid the entire deposit until eveyone has started booking. It seems like there is a special promotion that if we can get 15 people booked prior to August 21, 2009, then the bride would be free.
What do you think the chances are in having 15 people actually book by that date considering we haven't sent out invitations yet.
Also this may seem like a stupid question but what did everyone use and how did they communicate the Save the date.

Robinkar - did you actually get a confirmation from the resort on your date? Once you have that you should be set. I did have to send a deposit to the resort to hold the date and I also have money down holding rooms for my guests.
As far as getting people to book by a certain date....if you read through this thread, as well as many of the others, there are girls like me, who have NOBODY booked (although my best friend is booking this week, she swore to me) and then other ones who have 20+ people booked. It all depends on your guests, your methods and how aggressive you are. I know crazykat had a really good idea for getting people to book quickly - look around post #89.
And we are all at different stages - you can do things in a year or in a month. Don't worry, it will all fall into place.
I have been trying to take a little break from everything wedding the last week or so - we're going on vacation soon and I want to wait till I come home to do the invitations, so if you don't see me on here too much - I'm trying to enjoy the rest of the summer before I have to step up the job search.
