    I bought a big vase and am going to put a candle in it that is smaller. John and I are going to use one of those long lighters. I saw some w/ a white handle. I would do the sand ceremony, but I think that would totally throw off my family. They would look at each other and think "what the heck are they doing?". My family is very Catholic and traditional to say the least.

          Hi Ladies!!!
          I am a newbie here! But this forum has been a lifesaver!! I will be getting married at Dreams in Los Cabos.

          Food: working out the menu now.
          Cake: Cake that is provided with our package.
          Flowers: white stargazer lilly bouquet.
          DJ: Using our ipod and renting speakers from Dreams for the night. We also want to rent the speakers for our ceremony since I have a specific song that I would like to walk down to.
          Hair and Makeup: I will be doing my own hair and makeup.
          Wedding Cordinator: Yesica at Dreams
          Photographer: Gilda Badillo

          Did our website
          Booked our stay
          Booked photog & videographer


          Things still to do:
          think about what type of center pieces we want and mail them out a month before wedding.
          Figure out place cards/menu cards
          get chinese lanterns
          OOT bags
          vows
          boudoir photos? not sure if I will be doing this or not. good gift though for him.


          I know I am forgetting stuff...so much to do!!!!!

                OMG Amy, I soo know how you feel! It's like I blinked and I'm just under four months away. I almost don't like looking at my ticker right now because it stresses me out. I have to remin myself to BREATH and think that even though there's lots left to do, I have already accomplished alot! I think I am gettting stressed more easily. I have actually done alot more than since I did my forst post on this thread. I swear I'll get around to updating it soon! I think it will make me feel better too. I can't wait for yours and really do hope we can at least meet up for drink or two!

                  Heck yeah......we'll definately meet up. My family is a blast, so we'll be hard to ignore I'm sure I've suddenly realized that I was putting a whole bunch of projects off saying, I'll just wait until we are a few months out......and suddenly it's time to get crackin.... We should all re-post our lists again to see the progress. I'll do that today......
