    Thanks Lisa and Aimee! I forgot to mention i have the deposit for the photographers. We actually decided to use a different photographer for both the wedding and the TTD, which will happen a couple days later.

    Is anyone doing a month before newsletter / pamphlet?

      Hi ladies!

      Well a managed to finish stuff for the guestbook this weekend. I will some pictures probably tomorrow. This is exciting! :)

      Joss - I wasn't planning on doing that. Most of my guests are avid traveller's and know what to expect and have been to Jamaica before. So I didn't feel the need to do this.

        Wow, I just found this thread today! I too am a January bride, the 16th to be exact. After reading this thread, I realized I REALLY need to sit down tonight an make a list of things to do, and things done! Thank you ladies for posting all of yours. It will give me a good start on what I need to list! Once I have it, I'll post it.
        Thank you Lisa for starting this thread! Time to get cracking!

                Ok, so here's a quick breakdown:


                Hair/makeup salon booked
                STD's sent out
                Coordinator hired
                Wedding dress ordered
                Shoes purchased (although I have to see if they'll match the dress still!)
                Photog hired
                DJ - almost hired
                Caterer hired

                TO DO:
                Groom's clothing
                Venue booked - almost booked one villa, but coordinator came up with a fabulous one! So glad I waited to send the check!
                Gifts for bridal party
                Gifts for parents
                Honeymoon plans
                Invites - although I do know which ones I want, just waiting to find out the venue info to put on them!

                There are so many other little things to add to all of this, but I think I am fairly ahead of the game! My goal is to really finalize as much as I can by November! Still don't have favors, etc. either. We're not doing OOT bags b/c everyone is staying in different places. Too hard to get them all out!

                Thanks again for this thread! I'll keep checking back to see what others have posted so that I don't forget all the little details!
                Good luck to everyone! January is just around the corner!

                      So here's a question i have for all my fellow January 2010 brides: how freaked out should i be that I haven't even really been looking for a dress yet? I've heard lots of conflicting things like it's easy finding the dress but alterations can take forever, or vice versa. Am I starting to cut it too close?
