Am I slacking already?

My wedding's scheduled for April 24th, 2010 in Playa Del Carmen. Unlike most, though, the wedding isn't at a resort, but at a small chapel in town where we'll have a Catholic ceremony. So the ceremony planning will be a little different... still need someplace to stay, though!
I haven't planned a thing yet! We booked the wedding coordinator (Stephanie at Ajua Weddings, who already seems awesome), but that's all. I have almost 11 months, is there really stuff I should be doing now?? I'm clueless :-P

Other than that, I'd say maybe start trying to deal with finding and booking a photographer. Their time schedule can fill up fast and depending on what you're looking for in one, they may be in higher demand. My photographer is booked and I'm still 11 months out; it was one of my biggest concerns going into the process because I know what I want in regards to photos and I wanted to make sure I nailed someone down who could deliver it before they were booked on our date.
Other than that...are you having a reception? Welcome dinner? Anything that will take reserving space is good to look into early on since the Riviera Maya is such a popular spot for weddings. So really, it just depends on what type of event inclusions you're planning to incorporate.

Yeah, we'll have a rehearsal dinner and probably another less formal event or two like a welcome dinner or a farewell brunch or whatever you'd call it :-P So that's my challenge now; I'd like to find a place for us to stay where we could also have the rehearsal dinner, possibly. I'm mostly just looking at hotels atm; we're on a reeallly strict budget and I'd like to make it as cheap as possible for the guests. I'm looking at La Tortuga right now as a place to stay... anyone been there?
My mom and I are trying to plan a scouting trip down there soon, pretty much as soon as I get my passport renewed! I'm hoping that won't be too late to book some stuff!

I got engaged in Sept and getting married in July. I had 10 months for planning and that was plenty of time. You have your Chapel booked so the next things to look at are the resort and the Photgo. For me if you have those things booked, everything else will fall into place and you have more time with. You are not slacking at all and have plenty of time! Just getting the basics like a date and a place to stay are the most important.
