      Oh Courtney I love your dress, it's so beautiful! Lucky you getting to try on your dress so often. I think I'll have to pick mine up the day before we leave because if I had it in the house I'd probably wear it all day, LOL!
      I do have a picture of me in the dress but I can't post it, couple of my friends going to the wedding are on this forum too!

       

      We are all in the double digits now with regards how many days left. I can't believe how quick it's going. I started working on a planning thread a while back and add to it as I go. Watching that grow really hits home about how much has been done so far!

      Had an email from my w/c last night, she is amazing and on top of everything, I think we have all the details (well as much as we can in advance) squared away with her now.

       

      Has anyone but together a full music list yet? Anyone got good suggestions for songs during dinner, and songs for dancing?

        Thanks Joanne -   I often wonder if I would have picked the same dress if I went shopping later on, but I never went back to look again because I was afraid I might find something else.

         

        I have been doing the same thing with a planning thread!!  Ever since I joined the forum I have loved looking at planning threads, but they seem like they would be so much effort if you waited until the end to put one together.

         

        I have my ceremony music decided on and confirmed with my fiance.  I have chosen the dinner music but have not tried to force my fiance to sit down long enough to go through the list with me.  I have a list of potential dancing songs, but I haven't started to finalize that one yet.

         

        Here are our ceremony songs:

         

        Artist Song Title When to Play
        Bruno Mars Marry You Guest Seating 
        Ingrid Michaelson The Way I am Guest Seating 
        Micheal Buble Best Is Yet To Come Guest Seating 
        John Legend Stay With You Guest Seating 
        Keith Urban Memories of Us Guest Seating 
        Michael Buble Everything Mothers' entrance
        Flower Girls' & MOH entrance
        Train Marry Me Bride's Entrance
        Everlasting Love Natalie Cole Recessional

        And here are the special Reception songs:

         

        song artist Comments
        Celebration Kool & the gang Introduction Song
        When You Say Nothing at All Allison Krauss first dance
        I Loved Her First Heartland father/daughter dance
        What a Wonderful World Louis Armstrong mother/son dance
        I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) The Four Tops cake cutting song

         

        And finally, here are the dinner songs (selecting 12-14 was recommended by the DJ):

         

        song artist
        I've Got the World on a String Michael Buble
        All I Do is Dream of You Michael Buble
        Lovesong Adele
        Sea Breeze Tyrone Wells
        Come On Get Higher Matt Nathanson
        I Do Colbie Caillat
        I'm Yours Jason Mraz
        You Are The Best Thing Ray LaMontagne
        Just The Way You Are Bruno Mars
        Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic The Police
        Bless the Broken Road Rascal Flatts
        I Could Not Ask For More Edwin McCain
        Honey Bee Blake Shelton

          Same here!! 84 now!

          Time sure is flying indeed!! My dress has been in for a while now -- since May 1st --  but it's been at the bridal salon (good thing since I won't be tempted to take it out often and try it on). :D But I'll be going to pick it up next week to take it to my mom for alterations. Not looking forward to flying back and forth with the dress before the trip to the wedding, but oh well. 

           

          Don't have all the music squared away except for ceremony music. As for dancing, we're planning to collect songs from our guests next month or so because I figured if they had some input they'd enjoy dancing to at least some of the songs! I'll probably add some extra so that we have more than enough fun songs to dance to.  

           

          Now I'm just waiting to finish place cards, which won't be done until I have all the RSVPs. That and the guest book as well as figuring out hair accessories. I guess that's all that's left I can think of prior to actually being in Mexico.

            Its getting really exciting now  we are getting so close - my dress arrives in next week, can't wait to try it on again!!! I think we have all the big things done except for the rings which we are doing this weekend. It is now just the little things, which i am terrified of forgetting something....

              Oh my God Courtney, we have the same first dance!!!! Only difference is we are going with Ronan Keatings version.

               

              Pucca I love the idea of asking guests for song suggestions!!

               

              Carrie I am the same as you, am pretty sure that I'll forget a lot of small things!

              What I like about the destination wedding is this ..... if wedding was at home I know I would be doing stuff right up until the minute of the wedding, however once I board that flight for Mexico there is no more I can do regarding the wedding, too late at that point, so all I can do is sit back, sun, relax and drink cocktails!!

                  So we went back home for our wedding shower (24 hr drive there/back) and I have been in a funk now.. I need to write atleast 50+ thank you cards & put together our luggage tags to send out with the brochure and I'm not in the mood! I go through stages of wedding planning and right now I'm stuck lol.

                      so, I just heard back from US airways... I emailed to ask what the policy was on carrying on a wedding dress...I got a very nice reply saying that there is no room to lay a dress in the overhead and they do not have closet space anymore on planes. They suggested a standard 45" garment bag folded in half is the best option. 

                      Ugh! something new to stress about!!
