Recommended Posts

We sent out our save the dates in april as well and we are planning on sending out the invitations towards the end of august....not sure if that is too early but I go back to school aug 29 and because we are doing the message in a bottle invites i'm hand delivering as many as possible so wanna get it out of the way before life gets hectic again with school

I think its to do with our travel agent.  They have until the end of august to get there deposit in and then full payment by Dec.  We are going to Varadero, Cuba.

Well this thread is quiet! We have 8 months to go, ladies! What are you all working on now?

 

I'm focusing on the below:

 

- going to WW meetings and the gym LOL :o) Down 30lbs so far :o)

- deciding where to buy my dress (Kleinfelds in NYC where I live or a boutique in my hometown)

- flower arrangements based on what flowers are local...I am going with dendrobium orchids

 

Next I need to figure out invitations!

Its almost to quiet for only 8 months to go!  Time is flying by so quickly I can remember back in January thinking it was going to take forever to be my day!

 

So far:

 

I sent out invites

Bought my dress

Choose the bridesmaid dresses (Just have to order them)

Choose the groomsmen Outfits  (Just have to order them as well)

Started on my OOT Bags

Have booked a photographer as long as her husband agrees to come.

 

Other then that I'm on hold at the moment as our resort has confirmed our date and time but now just waiting on the judge to see if hes available if not symbolic it will be.  But with the Riu they make you deal with the sales people in Mexico until its confirmed and then you can contact your wc in whichever country your getting married in. So once I get the conformation I will have my lists of questions and hopefully be able to sort out a lot more.

 

Trying to get as much done before september as I start school again and I will be working full time so wedding planning will be on hold a lot after that time.

So far I have:

sent out save the dates

booked a photographer

secured a room/event contract with the resort

picked out a dress (still need to purchase it)

and I have made decisions on my centerpieces, favors, timeline ect. . .

 

I am in the process of making my invitations right now, and making items for my centerpieces.

 

I'll be leaving for my wedding in about 7 months! (End of Feb) It's coming up fast!

I need to pick my dress...I'm getting it on labor day weekend.

 

I'm nervous that I'll have to get it rushed...don't want the extra shipping costs. Has everyone else already ordered theirs?

 I ordered mine a couple of weeks ago and already have a ship date of Aug 30 so I should be getting it in the first two weeks of september.  Considering they told me December I'm so impressed by how quick it came.  Oh and i noticed that most dresses were only a 4 month ship time so you should be ok :)

March 28, 2012 Barcelo Maya Palace. I've got the bulk of my stuff done. Sent out STDs at our engagement parry in January. Just sent out passport invites last week. Bought my dress. Bought bridesmaid dresses at H&M Bought grooms suit, groomsmen outfits (Neiman marcus last call and Tommy Bahama outlet) and ALL shoes in Las Vegas for the wedding party including myself. We came back with 3 extra suitcases and almost 20 pairs of shoes (I bought three, and two for each of my girls) Booked photographer, and hair and makeup Ordered real touch flowers for me. Made all boutineers, wrist corsages, flower girl pompadour flower ball and bridesmaid bouquets. Now I'm working on OOT bags, fans, programs, ceremony script and music playlists. Can I also say that I'm a teacher and needed to do most of this in the summertime.

    • 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.
