    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...

        You ladies can't find ANYONE? a neighbour, a friend or family member who isn't going to the wedding? I hope it works out for you both!

          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

            Have you checked with your local animal shelter? Sometimes they'll have lists of boarders that will take pit bulls! Good luck!

              *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?

                      Started our gift registry, but after half an hour, we got bored... I am going to go back on my own and just do it as the FI doesn't really care.... I was told I have to because of my up coming shower.... kinda feels more real now..
