My thoughts are if you are 3.5 months away from wedding date and you don't think you can afford it now, will you be able to save enough in three months?? It's not really something you can book last minute even if you could save that amount. Especially since my hotel is really small and there probably won't be rooms! YIKES! May be a small wedding afterall!
      I guess my guests are not the only ones waiting until the last minute. We gave them one year notice and many that said they want to come haven't booked their room or bought their air tickets. At this point I don't even want to hear any complaints when the prices skyrocket! I agree, at this point if you can't afford it then don't come. Just last week I had a friend ask me why it's so expensive( I mentioned that when I last checked the air tickets were around $450- little does she know the air has gone up to about $500-$600)I'm not going to stress it too much. The less people, the easier it will be to enjoy the trip with our guests.


      Invites are out and RSVPs are due May 1. We'll see what happens.

        Our invites are finally done and just need labels and stamps. They will go out on Monday, and have an RSVP date of May 10. We'll see who actually shows up to our Cabo shindig! LOL!

          It'a a little scary to think about, but I haven't done all that much.

          I panic when i think of all the things left to do. I wish I had a list of things I'm supposed to be thinking about. I guess I'm taking for granted that they're pretty organised down there.

          One of the problem is that don't know how much they really provide, you know?

          When I get a little more time (vacation at the end of next month), I'm really going to get things going....

            Okay July ladies...we're getting closer! Can you believe that it's April next week?

            Here's an update list of my To Do's and Still Need To Be Done:

            - Talked with MC's about reception and gave them an order of events
            - Purchased GM's outfits - amazing deal! Shirt and Pants for under $50!
            - Helped MOB and FOB find their outfits
            - Sent out Pre-departure mailing with brochure and luggage tags to confirmed guests
            - Received Mugs and Bags for OOT bags
            - Bought remaining goodies for OOT bags - Tylenol, Imodium, snacks, splash bombs and frisbees
            - Made Tanks for my girls and the mom's to wear on the wedding morning
            - Had Amazing Boudoir Shoot for my wedding gift for my honey!
            - Bought dresses to wear to showers, rehearsal dinner and 70's themed bachelorette party
            - Created Letter for OOT bags from VISTA
            - Found my earrings and tiara
            - Bought Raffia Fans for ceremony
            - Did a rough seating plan
            - Collected Sand Dollars in SC to use for the name cards at the reception

            Still To Do:
            - Plan our Rock the Reception Dance
            - Make Place Cards
            - Wrap the fans in ribbon
            - Put together the OOT bags with labels and tags and ribbon
            - Get documents translated and notarized for legal dominican wedding (can do in April...had to wait till 3 months out)
            - Make table number cards and create mission impossible game for the reception
            - Get dress alterations - mid May
            - Find FI's wedding band
            - Finalize seating plan

            Wow seems like a lot but it all will get done and the day will be amazing...I just know it!

            How are others going?

              Well, I don't know what I've gotten accomplished since last posting (was it even on this thread or another?) anyway-
              Finished:
              Found kids outfits
              bought table decorations
              bought cups
              finished ribboning fans
              started welcome books
              put deposit on TTD dress
              finished luggage tags

              To do:
              make maraca tags
              finish welcome books
              Order FI's suit (he's procrastinating trying to lose weight)
              Purchase rings
              Dress fitting
              Finish 'blinging' shirts for the girls

              I think that's it!!!!! WOW. Not much left to do!

                      Welcome!! When I first went looking at places for a local wedding people always asked if I was a teacher because most plan their weddings in July/August.

                      I'm not a teacher but I work in a school and I can't wait until the school year is over!! I thought about working part time this summer but I think I'm going to take a break and focus on the wedding.
