This will be much more fun to say what I have done instead of what I haven't done :)

 

Location: Azul Sensatori, Mayan Riviera, Mexico

Guests: Expecting about 50.  21 Booked.

Colors: Tiffany Blue, Canary Yellow, and White

Selected the ceremony & reception locations

Bought the dress! - It should arrive any day now!

Sent out my STDs (which actually turned into full invitations!).  I wish I could lie and say they were DIY, but I was getting way too frustrated and ended up paying $ for them.

Very nice!! They turned out great!! I'm in the process of ordering mine from a seller on etsy too!  I couldn't be bothered with all that cutting and gluing for 100+ invitations!! LOL

In terms of my other planning:

 

  • I'm going to be ordering my bridesmaids dresses soon from www.bigdaydress.com (style JH 5082).
  • I bought my gown last weekend!!  (... but still looking for my FI's suit!!)
  • I'm booked to visit my wedding locations (in Panama) from Sept. 20th for a week!!  So excited I could actually see things first hand to help my with all the decision making and planning.

I am sooo far behind haha! The only thing I have done is chosen the resort and sent in the date request, even though I'm still debating the date....only time available was 6.30pm, do you guys think that is too late???

I have my wedding band, but we still need to get one for FI. I have designed the STDs but not ordered them yet.

 

JR14, where in Panama are you getting married? We were considering Panama for a little while there.

Its so interesting to see the different stages everyone is in.  I thought I was far ahead, but I see a few others that are even further ahead than me!

 

Happy Planning Everyone!

For what it's worth I think you should also go with what will work the best for YOU!  We had a tricky time too because there were only days available at the beginning and the end of our planned trip.  Then it turns out many of our guests from the USA are coming for 5 days (rather than the full week).  In the end I decided to do it pretty close to the beginning of our trip - arrive Wednesday and wedding Friday, May 27, 2011.  I made the decision for ME because I knew I would be a stress case until the wedding was over and my vacation could actually start.  hahaha

 

So... try and think about what you want personally and don't worry too too much about everyone else.  After all, if they're going all that way for your wedding they'll be happy to have it any day during their trip I'm sure.  :-)

We have some guests that only will be able to come for a few days too. I was thinking 5.5.2011 and it is a Thursday. But then I only have 2 days after the wedding to really relax :S

You're right! I am so busy with trying to please everyone's wishes and I know it. I think I would prefer to have it in the beginning of the trip but on those days the only time left is early that day (not am but earlier than I would like). I could move it up one day and have it on that Wednesday....not sure what to do :S

 Isn´t the dress perfect? I love it!  I found it at a place full of wonderful stuff from India!

 

cheer2.gifThe villa is a great choice as it has six of us put for all our stay and we are celebrating the ceremony there.

There is a Wedding fee and the extras would be hiring the setup for reception, and that is it, as all the rest, you also pay in the hotels!

But privacy pays, this time for us!  

 

I found the dress at a special store where they sell Indian stuff. Isn´t it beautiful?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
