    Hi ladies! I was originally an August bride but after finally deciding on our venue, we found our date was taken. So I'm now joining you July brides!

    Name: Cassie

    FI Name: Andrew

    Wedding Destination: Rancho Palos Verdes, California

    What made you choose this destination? Well I decided to stay in the US due to travel expenses for my very large immediate family and I am in love with Cali, so I thought it would be perfect for us and we found an amazing venue, so we're very happy with our choice.

    Wedding Date: July 11, 2010

    What made you choose this date? Like I said earlier, unfortunately we were late in the game here and our August 1 date was booked, so this was the closest available date.

    Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? clover green and watermelon pink

    What is something unique about your wedding? hmm, can't think of anything too unique

    Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: I actually joined the forum last February when we started looking at rings, but just finally got engaged the weekend before Christmas. So thankfully I had all that time to start getting lots of ideas or there's no way I could be putting this together so fast, I have so much left to do though!

      Welcome girls! How's the planning going? What does everyone have accomplished?

      I have checked a few more things off my list - a few big ones like
      booking airfare and hotel for me and FI
      booked transportation to and from hotel
      booked airfare and hotel for my photographer
      creating my music playlist for the ipod for the reception
      bought two pairs of shoes (pink high heels and small heeled silver sandals)
      ordered my real touch bouquet for me and bridesmaid
      ordered real touch flower for hair
      got my dress
      got veil
      got accessories (earrings and bracelet)
      got dress for at home reception and rehearsal dinner
      got a few sundresses for the trip
      got 2 new bikinis for the trip
      ordered dress for bridesmaid
      got shoes for bridesmaid


      the next thing on my list is to get our designs done up for our wedding bands and order those.

      How are your lists coming?

        Name: Anne

        FI Name: Huy (Mike)

        Wedding Destination:
        Astina Chapel at Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali, Indonesia

        What made you choose this destination?
        It is heaven on earth! I am Indonesian but have never been to Bali except for our recent wedding site visit over Thanksgiving. Beautiful, serene and spiritual Bali is a perfect location for our wedding. Not to mention the best spa treatment in Asia!

        Wedding Date: July 24, 2010

        What made you choose this date?
        The best weather in Bali happens to be in July and is also the peak season. Summer time is perfect for our friends who are still in college and siblings in high school to spend a few weeks in Asia.

        Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they?
        Leafy green, blush peach, ivory/white, also hints of silver because my shoes are Jimmy Choo Epsies!

        What is something unique about your wedding?
        Nothing unique, but I'm trying to convince FI to bring his guitar to play during the reception. He is a wonderful songwriter and guitarist!

        DONE:
        Lea-Ann Belter dress finished and sent from Toronto!
        FI's suit Kenneth Cole
        STDs sent in November 2009
        Formal invitations sent February 2010
        Photog deposit
        Makeup artist deposit
        Venue deposit
        Priest booking
        Wedding bands
        Buffet selection
        Cake
        Flowers


        TO DO:
        Wedding band engravings
        Veil
        Hair and makeup ideas (no clue yet)
        Whip on bridesmaids to send me pics of their dresses (I'm letting my bridesmaids wear whatever they want as long as it's green, not sleeveless, goes well with dressy flats)
        Procession songs
        Programs
        Table place cards
        Reception entertainment
        Cocktails and reception iPod playlist
        Group airline fare deposit
        Hotel booking deposit
        Wedding favors: thinking about locally made fans or coffee/tea for foreigners, something different for local guests.


        T-5 Months!! It is definitely a full time job to plan a wedding that is in the opposite time zone, opposite side of the world with no wedding planner. But the stress is worth it! As it will be perfect in the end. A bit of a control freak here.
        I'm getting married in Bali!!

          Hello Ladies,
          My name is Chrystal and I'm from Chicago.
          FI's name is Jeff
          We are getting married at The Excellence Resort and Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
          We were originally going to have a larger wedding here in IL but just a month ago and 6 months from our wedding day...we decided we needed to do what we really wanted to do and go away and get married.
          After many hours spent researching destinations and resorts/hotels, pricing things out, we settled on the place that fit us best. I also read many wonderful reviews regarding Excellence resort and having never traveled anywhere like this before was in need of reassurance.
          Our original wedding date was July 30th 2010 however we realized that we may not be able to keep that date on such short notice. I really hoped to keep it in July so was very happy when the wedding coordinator told me July 31st at 4pm was available for our ceremony!
          I am revising my original colors to be more beach friendly so I haven't settled on them just yet. My MOH is helping me decide.
          I'd have to say that the most unique thing about my wedding presently is that we decided to be brave and make changes to keep our wedding focused on what its really all about...our love and happiness.

            Awesome Daisy! Good luck with all your planning? Have you decided on anything else yet besides your location and a destination wedding?

                Hi Ladies,

                I don't know about you all but time is flying TOOO fast and I'm starting to freak out. I have a few checklists that I look at from time to time and I've been getting things done. However, I worry that there are things that I might forget to do? I want the day to be perfect and I hope it all comes together. How's it going with you all??

                For those of you who are putting together OOT bags, I found some really cheap tote bags for 57 cents each. I'm not sure how long the sale will last so check it out soon if you're interested. It's the Nonwoven Econo tote. Convention Totes Store

                      Hi everyone!

                      My name Tracy
                      FI Name: George
                      Wedding Destination: Paradisus Palma Real
                      What made you choose this destination? I went there 4yrs ago with my family and thought it was one of the most beautiful resorts, ever!
                      Wedding Date: July 16, 2010
                      What made you choose this date? I'm a teacher so we needed a July date and we didn't want to get into August and risk a hurricane. We originally wanted July 24th for the one year anniversary of our engagement but it wasn't available so we did the 16th which is 1month after our 3yr anniversary.
                      Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? Ugh, i don't know...this is still being decided.
