    Hi all!

     

    My wedding is two weeks today, and I leave in 12 days!!  I am SO ridiculously excited, but also have heart palpitations every time I think about it!  Most everything is taken care of, I just need to finalize my music playlist.

     

    Natalie, congrats on making your group!  I used www.mywedding.com for my wedding website, and even did my RSVP through them.  Connie is pretty quick when it comes to the dresses, but I would give her a couple of months, just to be safe.  Honestly, the sooner the better.

     

    Good luck!

      Hey Ladies

       

      Good to hear you got your group booking Natalie!!  My dress is at Connie's.  I get to go visit it tomorrow :)  I took it in last week and she will have it all pinned for me tomorrow.  i will find out then how much longer it will take and let you know.  I think she is pretty quick but don't leave it to the last minute.

       

      Yay Pam, you must be so excited!!!  I have so many lists on the go that I need to make one and go from there.  Have a wonderful time, can't wait to hear all about it when you get back.

        Hey everyone,

         

        Just wondering if anyone knows a good travel agent in NW Calgary. We are booked for our wedding at Dreams Puerto Vallarta in Feb 2012.

         

        Thanks :)

          Nat! Don't stress! My mantra through all of this is that it's a DW: it's not suppose to be stressful. Regardless of what happens, everything will be beautiful!

           

          We used Wedding Window for ours, which is so comprehensive. It gives you options for like a million pages (at least 50). You can check mine out here:

          On another note, we FINALLY got our invitation sample in the mail today!!! Damn USPS mail! They look gorgeous! So happy I decided to go with letterpress :)

          Good news - I have 20 guests booked so far and I hit my group requirement!!!!!  I am sooo excited!

           

          On another note, our weddings are coming so closer - mine is 3 months out today and I know a couple of you are getting married next month!!!! Is anyone having massive stress?  I AM :(

          I don't even know why as I am pretty much on the ball with everything.  How are you ladies all doing?  I do need to create a wedding website and was wondering if you guys have any suggestions of which site to use?  Also, I need to go see Connie to do all my dress fittings.  I need them to be finalized by April 1st!  When should I contact her to start the process?

           

          Are we getting together soon - we need to see the FEB brides before they leave!

              Just let Connie know that you are on a tight timeline and I'm sure she will be able to do it for you

                I used The Knot for my website and I would NOT recommend it. It was glitchy, hard to foramt and messed up half the stuff I posted. I wish I used Wedding Window!

                  Thanks ladies for all the tips!

                   

                  Pam - I set up my website last night on mywedding! It is amazing, free and just what I wanted.  All my RSVPs are going through there now!! This will save me a lot of money.

                   

                  Nat - your site is amazing - it is so detailed!

                   

                  Thanks guys!

                    I'm so glad you managed to get 2 more people booked!!  One less thing to stress about, yay :)

                     

                    Our wedding is now 36 days away and I am freaking out!!  Not because we're getting married, but because I still have a pile of stuff do to -- like finish getting invitations out hahaha!  Everyone knows the when and where already, and whoever is coming is already booked so its not a huge deal... but I feel like a gigantic ass for not having them all out yet.   I used wedquarters for our wedding website (and I do not recommend it... its very useless, I accidentally signed up for the wrong site and had meant to sign up for a different one instead).

                    As for getting together before the next set of weddings, I'd love to!  I'm out of town from the 21 to the 30, but good anytime before/after  :)

                      Hey Everyone :)

                       

                      We're getting married in Maui November of this year!!!  I was wondering where people have find out about sample sales or sales on dresses?  I found my dress (totally wasn't expecting to!) but want to find a cheap dress for our TTD shoot!!!

                       

                      Thanks in advance!
