    I am also a June 11th bride!  I have my dress already also, what dress did you choose?


    All of my vendors have been recommended by the resort except for my photographer, I am sneaking him in with a day pass :)


    I am still compiling my bags, but they will have chapstick, sunscreen, key holders, small first aid kits, playing cards and whatever else I can find.

      Aww its nice you have a date twin :o) anyone else the 1st like me????


      I have gone with a big dress. Wasn't the plan but when i see it and tried it on i knew it was 'the one'...


      I'm also doing the gift bags and so far have, personalized pen, note pad, antibac gel, gel spots, resolve (for the morning after the night before ;o) insect bite cream, stain wipes, bottle stopper (for the cheaky bottle opened in the rooms ha ha) lip balm and that's it for now. Was going to get some personalized playing cards but it seems you can only get a minimum amount of around 20 and i only need 8. :o(

        You have a lot done for your OOT bags, that is great!  It is probably nice to only have to do 8, you can make them more personalized.

              I thought I'd share my list of what I have done and what I still need to do! I hope others will share too (so I can see if I'm on the right track!). We are getting married June 11 2011 at the Barcelo Riviera Maya Palace resort.


              What I've done:

              Bought my dress!!

              Bought the wedding bands

              Ordered all my OOT bags (free from vistaprint)

              Decided on, purchased, and am working on hand painting my fan favors (will be given out at the ceremony)

              Sent out invites

              Picked menu, reception location, ceremony location

              Booked photographers (bringing from Kelowna)


              Still need to do:

              Possibly get his wedding band engraved

              Dress fittings (waiting til I lose more weight!)

              Purchase bridesmaid dresses

              Choose ceremony script

              Choose wedding songs

              Order chair sashes (apparently my resort doesn`t have aqua or turquoise!)

              Send out pre travel brochure

              Figure out how the documentation works for a legal ceremony

              Get PADI certified!

              Finish ordering OOT bag contents (I should actually stop soon!)

              Figure out groomsmen and groom attire

              Figure out centerpieces

              Lose 10 lbs! Lol.

              Hunt people down and pressure them to book!! (Lol just kidding....sort of...)

              Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

                  I only have 8 bags to make too!  I bought a lot ahead of time, thinking I'd have more people, so I was lucky to be able to take quite a bit back.


                  Here's my list!!


                  What's Done?

                  - My dress!  My first fitting will most likely be in February

                  - My jewelry and underwear

                  - My shoes (although I am thinking about changing them)

                  - BM dresses (having a very hard time deciding on shoes -- orange and white tiger lilies for the flowers and aqua colored dress...suggestions welcome!)  :o) Are orange heels to bold!?

                  - Groomsmen outfits

                  - BM gifts

                  - Mother's gifts

                  - Father's gift

                  - OOT Bags and most of their contents (still looking for cheap spanish for dummies books!?)

                  - Wedding day schedule/spa appointments

                  - Morning fishing trip booked for groomsmen/fathers

                  - Wedding rings (mine still needs sized)

                  - Toasting flutes

                  - Photo guestbook

                  - Photographer (Octavio Montes)

                  - Wedding resort extras (harpist for the ceremony, horse and carriage entrance, videographer)

                  - Reception location

                  - Hair/makeup by sister-in-law

                  - AHR location, DJ, cake baker, and photographer



                  Still to do:

                  - something old, something borrowed!?! (I have no idea what to do for this...I have the new and the blue)

                  - Groomsmen gifts (we are trying to find those flask fliplops!)

                  - Garter

                  - Groom's linen suit

                  - Flowers (all DIY)

                  - AHR invites

                  - Destination favors (thinking about finding a bakery in Mexico to get Mexican Wedding Cookies)

                  - DIY Fan Program

                  - Order chair sashes

                  - Decide about a sand ceremony

                  - DIY place cards (for both destination and AHR)

                  - AHR decor (vases and most flowers bought)



                  Wow...that actually helped a lot! :o)  I'm sure I forgot some things...but this looks like pretty much it!

                    Everyone is making so much progress!  Yippee!  We just got confirmation from about 5 more family members that they'll be attending as well :)  Looks like we'll be close to 30 total guests - more than I thought :)


                    Are you all wearing heels or flat sandals?  What about your bridesmaids?

                      I'm only wearing 1-2" heels, because my FI is only a few inches taller than me.  My bridesmaids will be about the same -- maybe 2-3".
