    I had to share with all of you...  This morning I went with my matron of honor to see how her dress fits now that she's had her baby and been able to work off all of her baby weight.  I'm not sure if I've completely mentioned it on here, but originally we were to get married this past September here at home.  That didn't work because of things with the church and my FI being previously married.  Shortly before we had to put my dog down in May, I decided life is too short, and I'm doing the wedding the way I (and FI of course) want it to be!  So, we decided on Mexico.  It's been a very rough planning process for me up until we made the decision to have a DW.  I had an issue with the girl that I picked to be my MOH in the first place, however we have worked hard to work things out and she is now a bridesmaid....  But, I haven't been completely excited about the wedding until yesterday and today.  Yesterday was exactly 6 months out for us, and I can't believe we are getting so close!  Today after going in and discussing what alterations need to be done on the MOH's dress, my dress, and the dresses for the other two bridesmaids, I finally feel really excited/nervous for the whole process.  I think it's FINALLY hit me that this is REALLY happening and I just can't wait.  With all the obstacles I've had, it almost felt like it would never happen.  Finally I have that feeling, and I am so excited about it!!

      I am so glad to hear that everything is finally working out for you. The process alone is a tough one without the drama so when there is drama it puts alot of stress on the bride who is planning almost everything and wants everything to be perfect! This should be the happiest time in your life and don't let anyone ruin it for you. Get excited, stay excited because it is EXCITING! Yay for all of us! lol 6months away and you watch it will fly by and you will finally be married to the man of your dreams!

        Ellabaja - I'm so glad to hear it's working out for you. It sounds like you're having a tough year and deserve to put you and your FI's wedding as a priority. It is so exciting knowing how quickly all our wedding days are approaching.  The more we plan and get settled the more exciting it all becomes. For me it's almost worth being away from home and working so much overtime so that we can have our dream wedding paid for months in advance.

              Thank you ladies!  I am just so excited and I'm so happy because now it's easier to get things down.  It will fly by!  I just keep thinking about how busy the next two months are going to be with the holidays, and preparing for them.  Before I know it, it will be January and we'll be getting our alterations done and everything else!!! 

               

              I guess it also helps that people are booking as well!!

                    We decided last week to bump up our date from September 2011 to April 24, 2011.  We haven't even sent out our save the dates yet... are we doomed??

                      I don't think you are doomed.  It's totally doable...assuming you get them out soon!  For us, most of the guests we were inviting knew about it anyway.  Have you gotten together with a TA to get the travel plans started?  Between discussing things with the TA, sending out the STDs, and working with the WC at the resort, those should be your priorities...I would say.  I know some of the other girls have taken care of there complete trip (paying for it), but that was to get the savings they had discussed with their TA.  For us, ours isn't due until the middle of March, so that works for us and our guests as well.  What have you done at this point?  Good luck!!!
