No its never too early!!! Especially with a destination, gives people time to plan and pay for their trip. My invites went out in the beginning of April. As for your dress...Girl you better get on it!!! Unless you plan on buying at a sample sale or off of the rack someplace. I bought my dress at David's Bridal in April and it won't be in until July. They are usually faster then smaller bridal shops. Good Luck!!!! Keep us posted!

Ha, I agree with the Slacker Club! :) I actually have a lot booked, but still haven't booked our rooms at the resort OR our flights. Oops. Just got photographer and make-up artist booked. Surprisingly my dress only took 2 months to come in but my BM dresses will take 4 months. Uh-oh!!!

As long as you look great and have someone to take the pics, you're golden! That's one (among many of course)thing I haven't done yet.... the BM dress. Lucky for me, I only have my sis to worry about so I'm hoping I can go anywhere and get something!

Ha, I actually wish I was a little bit more of a slacker... maybe I wouldn't be so stressed! At least I only have details (and our rings and his suit) to worry about.

 

eunice.kindred - My invites were mailed April 1st. I don't think it is ever too early to send out invites when it is a DW and people have to save money. AND you need a dress!!! My dress was from David's Bridal and I was lucky and it was here in 2 weeks, but my cousin's dress took over 6 months (she ordered from a small bridal shop).

Ooo that's what I need to work on! I want to make my OOT bags good. where did you get the bags? Does anyone know of some good sites to get them that aren't TOO expensive?

Yay for October brides! :)

Yeah I need bags still too! I'm hoping that closer to the end of summer, cute little summery bags will go on sale. If I get stuck and can't find anything, I'll probably just use fun coloured paper bags from Michaels. I am for sure doing travel mugs and I"m hoping to get on that this week... or next wink.gif

I got mine off Vistaprint. I only paid $4.41 for each for shipping and got the bags for free. I wanted to do custom bags and I wanted canvas ones so that's why VP was great for me.

Here are bags I almost got. They come to $1.66 per bag (our colors our black, white, silver, and ivory)Black Tote Bags

Running bride, I ordered mine from discountmugs.com. I really like them, they are a jute tote and we had them printed. They were about 4.50 each (including the setup fee). The total price was the same for 25 or 50 so we went ahead and ordered 50 even though we won't need that many

Not sure if we are doing mugs or cups but saw some cute ones again from discount mugs.

 

Double Wall Acrylic Tumbler with Straw, Acrylic Tumbler with Straw, Custom Acrylic Tumbler, Custom Printed Double Wall Acrylic Tumbler with Straw, Promotional Double Wall Acrylic Tumbler with Straw

 

If you're interested, I get discount codes from them about once or twice a month, I'll post when I get the next email.
