    100 days and I will be leaving on a jet plane to Jamaica!!! AHHHHHHH Can't wait. Still a ton to do, but I've accomplished quite a bit in the last month. I'm pleased with progress. I think I should try to start packing the wedding stuff. What I CAN anyway..... Did anyone else start packing?

    I have over 225 days and I started packing awhile ago!

    I am so excited!  I got my wedding shoes today!!  I had to order them from the US but they were totally worth it!!  All I want to do is put them on and dance around the house!  Hopefully I'm not the only one who is crazy like that

      exciting times. :)

       

      I can't believe we're already through 1/2 the summer.  Your day will come so quickly!! 

       

      I just checked my countdown.  Only 118 days to the wedding and still have many SLOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW RSVP's to come in.  Including a few family members...  Very frustrating to try to plan.  At least the people I want to be there, will be there.  That's all that matters.  I came to the resolution that I plan for the number that responded and if someone joins late, well they just don't get an OOT bag.

        Yay!  It only posted once!  I think it doubles up when I respond to a quote with pics.

            I still have slow RSVP's and less then 100 days til departure. I have a long time friend of my finance's and his wife who have not yet confirmed yes or no? I keep getting "We really want to come." Not even a "But" to signify it's a no. We'd like them to come, but it would be nice to know... .

             

            And then my fiance's godparents returned their RSVP and indicated "Maybe", and then wrote a handwritten letter as to why. It was sweet. His godmother is not well (health-wise) and they want to come, but it depends on how she's doing in upcoming months. They live in the states, so they would book with their own travel agent. There were also a good chunk of RSVP's a mailed out, got nothing back, and they didn't book. I'm just assuming they are not coming.

             

            I'm still trying to find a second hand, cheap suitcase I can use to transport my wedding goods, and then I plan on leaving the suitcase there. Although I keep seeing beautiful new suitcases I wanna buy. Hahaha.

            As long as you have the total of 16 guests then it shouldn't matter who they booked through as long as the resort knows they are all for your wedding.

              Mel...don't worry about the slow RSVPs..as time goes by, others will start jumping on the bandwagon. 

              Ask your family, or friends for a used suitcase to transport your wedding goods...I did the same and left that suitcase there...It saved us the extra cost with the airline coming home.

                Well, we got a confirmed "No." on Sunday from on eof the couples that were on the fence. At least, I'm taking it as a no, and planning as such.

                 

                And I just noticed we're at 500 pages! Holy cow! and only 100 days until i get married! Madness!
