I have ordered my dress
Bought my veil
Bought BM dresses
Working on invitations
We're going on the weekend to look for FI & GM attire.
What else is there? It seems like everything's done at the resort. Should I start working on OOT bags.... I kind of now wish there was more to plan with a DW.
Well you do have a lot of time, but if you really want to keep planning here are some ideas (there's a lot):
-Do you have an idea of where you want the wedding? Will it be on the beach or in a gazebo, etc? Have you seen pictures of the set-ups?
-Will you be adding decorations or just using what they provide?
-You could work on a play list for your dinner/reception (are you having a DJ?) Are you & FI having a 1st dance?
-What about the menu? You could have your resort send you options.
-Do you have a photographer?
-Have you picked out types of flowers/bouquets you'd like? (maybe make an inspiration board to bring to show your WC at the resort)
-Are you planning on having favors at the wedding or place cards?
-What about a cake topper?
-Are you giving gifts to your bridesmaids/groomsmen? What about for your/his parents?
-Your shoes, jewelry & hairstyle (if you're having your hair done maybe find pics of how you'd like it done so you can bring those with you).
-Do you guys want to plan an excursion or welcome party for everyone?
-Have you looked into buying wedding bands? I know that's something we felt really relieved about after buying them.
-Have you booked your airfare?
-You could def start on the OOT bags so you don't have to buy everything at once. Have you found bags that you like? If not search around so that when you have a final count you can just go ahead & get them. I only have a rough estimate of the # of people coming but started to buy things like mini sunscreens, advil & emergen-c packets, chapstick & some water guns.
ok, I think that's enough!
