Well let me tell you guys a little about my wedding planning since I've been out of the loop. we got engaged oct. 19 2011 and right away I knew it was Mexico. By mid November I was booked at Las Caletas as I fell in Love with idea of the place. By Mid -december I found My TA on this website, Teresa Stauring who has been so great with everyone , very prompt and responsive with any information I asked. I also purchased my dress in december which I thought was early but I went to a trunk show and was able to get my dream dress , meet the designer and even have him add something extra only to my dress to be uniquely mine!!
By January I finished my wedding website, and sent out my save the dates.
After January a complete standstill , and Boy did it feel good!!!
By March I starting browsing at bridesmaids dresses though my bridesmaid thought I was crazy for doing early lol but my maid of honor said I had to right away. I have decided on one and will probably ask them to buy them by august/september .
I just booked my photographer last week., which I also worked on since february-May lol deciding on the right one.
Now i realize it is almost June and I Have not worked on any invites yet!! I originally was going to ask for a rsvp for october but I am shooting for hopefully having and rsvp by august 1st or even sept. 1st the latest!! I want to do passport invites , any suggested places that will do them for me? I am not big on DIY . I wish i had the time for it but do not
Also My mom is planning a bridal shower for me sept 10th and will also send out invites around same time i send out my regular invites....is this too conflicting for ppl? and knowing it's in sept i just realized I have to register soon !! double yikes. and in my personal life I have so many things going on home renovations galore, moving out, moving out....realtors. triple yikes!!!
So much to do but I'm having a great time with everything but man do I wish I had that standstill time i had in january now...it felt sooo good. LOL
