        Hey Ladies...well today I checked another thing off of my list...I had my hair trial done!! It looks amazing!! I'm sitting here writing this with wedding hair!! I'm feeling pretty good about everything...here are some of the things that I've recently completed and some remaining on my to do list!! I can't believe how soon we leave...it seems like yesterday we picked our resort!!

        Recent Checks off of the List:
        - Hair Trial with headband
        - Bought Makeup - HD foundation, eye-shadow primer, eye-shadows, powder, bronzer, and eye liner
        - Whitened my teeth
        - Made Placecards - using sanddollars and MOB's doing the calligraphy
        - Packed and Assembled OOT bags
        - Started to hand out OOT bags - we're giving them out before we leave
        - Made Raffia Fans
        - Wrapped Pashminas
        - Tied Ribbon around bubbles
        - Bought hair flowers for my Bridesmaids
        - Wrote all thank you's for all shower gifts
        - Shopped for more strapless bikinis and cover-ups/sundresses
        - Received Real Touch Flowers from Plumerias
        - Created Rock the Reception Mix
        - Made Photo-book for Gift to my parents
        - Received and Wrapped FI's Boudoir Book which will be his wedding gift
        - Bought wall charger for the I POD
        - Got a fabulous camcorder from my FI for my birthday!!

        Still Need to Do:
        - Choreograph our Rock the Reception First Dance
        - Make wedding week time lines and meet the guest handouts...will give out at the airport
        - Final dress fitting (scheduled for next week)
        - Make frames for the favour table for Pashminas and Cigars
        - Party at my Bachelourette!! Scheduled for June 26th!!
        - Write Speeches for Rehearsal dinner and reception
        - Print out correspondence with WC at the hotel and make an outline of the day and how things should be decorated for the WC
        - Mani and Pedi on July 2nd - the day before we leave
        - Make sure playlists are set on the IPODS and make back up discs

        I think that's about it...how's everyone else doing? We're getting so close now ladies...the end is in sight!!!

Sure don't want to waste money buying too many. Geez. I think I'm going to pick a number and go with it. Anyone who doesn't get an OOT bag for waiting last minute - oh well!
          I feel your pain! We have 47 booked right now, wedding is on July 20th. Our first booking was for a July 8th wedding and we had to reschedule because the plane/resort filled up and our wedding party hadn't booked yet. Now, there are about 5 more people who are telling us that they want to come but are waiting for the cheapest price possible. It might give me a stroke before all is said and done. I have to arrange dinner and ceremony seating for all the guests and the late-bookers are making this very difficult. On top of this, the restaurant I booked only accommodates up to 50 people and if everyone books we'll be at 52 which means we'll have to pay and rent a private restaurant (our dinner is semi-private right now). But who knows if they'll book....

            Three weeks from today, I'll be married...very exciting! (But still lots to do.) At least my FI bought shoes today, now he just needs a shirt for the wedding.

              I wanted him to look like my husband's lil twin lol... Luckily I'm OCD enough to write down everything, which explains this ridiculous Packing List I developed lol!

                  5 weeks and 2 days is my wedding date. 47 guests (incl FI and I) flying to Bali, Indonesia from all over the world! I'm psyched!!

                  Last minute things:
                  *photography info sheet
                  *compile playlist for iPod
                  *dance lessons
                  *book groomsmen fishing trip for FI
                  *write vows!
                  *buy sparklers and batik fans

                  Decided to forgo:
                  *favors
                  *programs
                  *out of town bags
                  *videographer

                  Saving money feels good!
                  I'm getting married in Bali!!

                      LOL! I am behind too! and I feel like I can't catch up! I didn't really realize that I leave in 26 days which is a lot closer than it sounds and it is stressing me out. My dress isn't finished yet. eeeek!
