    Congrats to all the October brides!

    I am not worried about hurricane season since I am getting married at Aruba. That is one of the reasons I picked it.

    I can’t believe I already have less than 8 months till I get married! I am working on the invitations and they will go out by the end of March. I am trying to pick a photographer but I am having a hard time. I have 4 I like, but one I would have to pay travel costs but he work is amazing.
    Wedding 10/22/10 Westin Aruba

    I love being a Mrs.!

      for all you mexico brides - are you nervous about october being hurricane season?
      Hey Eunice,
      a mexico bride here...i don't know if it's right or not but i'm not too worried about the hurricane season - we were in cancun last october from 10-17th and the weather was gorgeous - there was the occasional shower but it soon cleared. Fingers crossed ey?! And I've seen some pictures of weddings after a hurricane ida (i think)and they still look beautiful!
      30 people heading out to Mexico!!

        thanks... i lived in florida for many years so it didn't even cross my mind to worry about hurricanes until my fiance's mother brought up the question. I'm not to worried about it - if it happens it happens - you just can't predict mother nature a year in advance lol.

            Scorpio30-
            We're almost on the same page, my invites are almost done just need to finish a few and they will all be out soon.
            My dress should be finished in the next 2 or 3 weeks.
            And we havent had a chance to pick out the bridesmaid dresses because we all go to school and work, but will surely get to that sometime this month.

            It feels like time is going so fast!

              Luciel - My dress should be in around May. Its so hard to get everyone together on a certain day with everyone's schedules! And I only have 4 BM, 3 local. 1 lives in FL!

              I wish it was tomorrow! I'm ready to get on the beach!

                  Hi Girls - Sorry I've been a bit quiet!

                  It's been a while - and it has really helped me reading where all of you are up to... I am a bit of an organiser, so I have a few things done, but reading some of your stuff has reminded me of so many little things!! So I thought I would write out fully where I am up to - hopefully it may help one of you! :)
                  xx

                  Venue booked
                  Our invites are out, and we have started to have people booked!

                  ME:
                  *I ordered my dress fron China which should arrive in the next couple weeks :) It is a bit of a gamble, but there are no places like David's Bridal or anything in Australia, so its $2000+ or a sample sale (and I am not sample size!). So the dress that I have ordered is $3000aussie from bridal shops + alterations (about $500) etc and the dress from Duosheng is $450 inc postage, straps and crinoline. If it turns out to be horrible, I still have enough time to get my dress ordered from a dress shop...
                  *Shoes - I fell in love with a pair of manolos - but the heel was sky high on them, so I contacted shoesofprey.com.au where you can design your own shoes on their website, and they will create them for you - but the cost was $300aussie. Eventually I contacted Duosheng (who are doing my dress) who will make the shoes for $65aussie. Bargin! if they turn out to be horrible, I'm back to square one, but at least I've only blown $65 not $300!
                  *I have already got my real touch bouquet, and latex flowers for my own DIY project of making corsages and button holes.

                  FI:
                  *We have his shirt - actually I bought three of them, incase he gets a bit sweaty in the Fiji heat, he can just but on another shirt! It is a pinky colour, with rolled up sleeves
                  *still looking for pants

                  BMS:
                  *Their dresses were the very first wedding purchase - they are multicoloured maxi dresses - very tropical in purples, teals, blues and greens, with touches of pink, yellow and white too! All of our other choices have been based around these dresses :)
                  * I bought Parasols for them - I thought the contrast of the white parasol with the colourful dress would help to balance it out
                  * I will make them wrist corsages out of the latex orchids I bought online - I figure it is going to be too hard to juggle parasols and bouquets! :)

                  GM:
                  * I wanted to pick out the bright purple from the BM dresses have have shirts in the same style as my FI - but couldn't find them anywhere. I have been talking to a tailor in town who is going to do them for me, I little pricier than I wanted, but she found a great colour, and they are going to be an exactly copy of FI's shirt too
                  *pants - still looking for them

                  Photographer is booked - we have a local photographer in Fiji - but he is originally from NZ and is the island's best wedding photographer. We are still tossing up with the idea of a video - where are all of you coming down on that choice??

                  I think I am at a bit of a standstill now until we get a better idea of guest numbers etc...

                  Still looking for grey cotton pants for all the boys, and shoes and jewellery and stuff, but I think I'm pretty on track :)

                    Luciel - I'm so over this snow!! Sunny and 50 this weekend is sounding great right now! haha

                    Jo - Looks like you right on track. And wow, Figi wedding. Very cool. Can't wait to see your pics!! I haven't even thought about what the men in the wedding are going to wear!

                      Hmm compared to you JO, I am so behind.

                      Invitations will go out this week, and hopefully people will start booking soon.

                      My dress is also from China and should be in no later than the end of this month (cant wait!) Going to order my shoes and jewelry this week.

                      BM dresses havent even started looking yet, just know that they will be purple. Flowergirl dress is already here, and Best Mans outfit not sure of yet either.

                      Grooms attire- going to start looking in April when all the summer clothes are out.

                      Favors are done and so are palm fans, centerpieces and OOT bags.

                      Resort and photographer are booked.

                      Waiting for my real touch flowers to come in :)
