    I just now found this thread, so I must introduce myself. My name is Michelle and my FI is Paul. We live just 1/2 hour south of Milwaukee, WI in a small town and are both teachers. Our wedding is in Punta Cana, DR on July 14, 2011. I started out as a pretty strong planner, and as the cabin fever days of winter are dragging by I've lost the motivation to get stuff done. My next step is BM dresses.... which I know will be a HUGE headache.

      Welcome Michelle!  Or it could be HUGEly fun :)

      At this moment we are not having a bridal party so I can't even begin to share in that drama.  I'm sure in the next few weeks you'll be reinvigorated.  Spring break is soon right?

        Welcome Mishi!  How big is your wedding party?  I only have 2 girls and we found their dresses at Macy's for $50.  Great deal if you ask me!  Try not to make it a headache, have fun with it!!  Remember, you're having an island wedding!  No worries Mon!

            I know exactly how you feel regarding the people who haven't booked.  All my family and friends are booked, but not 1 person on his side!  He has a friend and his wife booked, that's it.  Everyone needs to be booked by April 1st.  We'll see what happens!  His brother just got married last weekend, but comeon, they could have at least put their deposit in a long time ago!  My biggest issue for my side is trying to get people to book flights.  Watching gas prices go up day after day doesn't motivate you to get them now?  AAGH! LOL

In fact,  there is still like 12 people on the "unsure" list if they are going to the wedding! 12!!!!!  And guess what? They are all his friends and he is supposed to be taking care of it. Has he? Uhhh, NO! All these people I don't know so its not like I can handle it. That is probably one of the biggest reasons for my anxiety. How am I supposed to do the OOT bags if 12 people haven't been confirmed? Man, my post started off so positive and now look at me...venting! Lol!

                  Welcome Yuri!  

                   

                  And Beach and See, I'm in the same boat too.  I just want 1 person to put their deposit  down.  Just one, is that asking too much?  Granted our wedding is still 14 months away, I NEED one person besides FI and myself to book so that I feel that all this work I've been doing is worth it.  Otherwise I've wasted time and money caring about the people who *might* be going. :(  Sorry for my freak out it's just everyone was so gung ho about the wedding and now it's like where are all my peeps at?
