Things done:
-ordered bridal gown (ordered at trunk show in April)
-purchased TTD gown
-deposit placed for resort
-deposit placed for photographer
-booked travel/honeymoon
-bridal misc purchased=shoes, flip flops, hair flower, spanx
-purchased FI's suit
-misc OOT bag items=playing cards, personal fans, keycard/tip holder, beach towels
-finished some of DIY projects=program fans, shell bout's for groomsmen, "bling" strands for huppah decor
-purchased pail for flowergirls
-purchased shells for ring bearer
-purchased flip flops for unprepared guest for ceremony/reception
-boarding pass Save-the-Date's sent
-purchased MOH/BM gift totes
-emailed groomsmen to get fitted for linen suits
-engagement session scheduled for next week thursday (EEK! I'm so nervous about this!)

Things to do:
-Passport invitations
-DIY floral/floating strands for huppah decor
-purchase our wedding bands
-decide on flowers and table centerpieces
-purchase bridal jewelry=earrings, bracelet
-book welcome/rehearsal dinner
-purchase gifts for MOH/BM/GM
-choose songs and make playlists

My list can go on and on... this is just the tip of the ice berg of things I need to do! I thought I had everything under control!!
I did give my MOH and BM their choice to choose anything they want to wear, I gave them the color swatch, and let them loose. I trust my girls to choose their own styles. But I am a little worried that they have not started to look for their dresses, aqua and coral is a spring/summer color, and with our wedding in january, if they procrastinate, they won't find anything during the winter. GRRRRRR
But, I won't stress myself about that.. I have other things to stress about!
Just to update my list:

things DONE and i can cross off the list:
-Purchased my bridal jewelry
-decided on guest table centerpieces
-lost 4lbs--6 more to go
-purchased our toasting flutes
-Took TTD to a seamstress who's a family friend to get altered.
-My dress finally came in and my first dress fitting is scheduled on 8/29/09!!

And to update my BM and MOH dress'
I was losing sleep with the whole BM dress subject. So i took it to my own hands to do the searching for them. SO, This weekend, I found the perfect BM dress that has both of our colors-aqua and coral. It was on sale at Macy's so i purchased all 5 of them. So, this week, i have to drop them off to the girls to for them to try on. Hopefully they fit. But, the good thing is, it's totally alter-able. WHEW!!!

OMG I'm so glad I'm not the only one having troubles finding a sitter for my four legged baby's. All the usual sitters will be with me in Punta Cana.... I'm really suck with ideas. I also have a pit bull, and there are a lot of companies that have a policy not to deal with them, which is really dumb, but that's another story... poor babies...

It's actually a wee bit stressful trying to find someone to look after the four-legged children. I'm in the same boat as the other girls - all my sitters are coming with us! And you can't just leave them with just anyone Lisa :P

*whew* So.. I finally found a sitter for my little baby. A good family friend asked me out of the blue who was going to watch my baby. I told her I didn't have one yet, and she totally volunteered!!! I more thing to knock off my list.

Any luck yet Imppearl and Joss?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
