CONGRATULATIONS!!! I have been taking the planning process so "lightly"!! No stress that is why I also gave myself so long to plan the wedding!! It is also great to have so much time because you can really focus in on each aspect of your wedding individually instead of everything as a whole and rush over it so quickly!!! I have been getting a lot of my DIY projects out of the way that I am able to so there will be no down to the wire!! Like my Save The Dates will not go out until Jan. 2012 but I know how many I will need, my dates, and my location so those can be made now!!!!!
I changed my colors a TON at the beginning of my planning!! It happens when you start researching and finding out what you really like as appose to what you thought that you liked!! My one word of advice which I am SO HAPPY I found out so early in my planning process... is to pick what you LIKE and don't let ANYBODY not your mom, sisters, friends etc., etc. persuade you into changing your mind! I had everyone tell me I could not do a "white" wedding.. So I changed my mind and was doing coral & Tiffany's blue but deep down I wanted coral and white.. Well I finally changed it to white and coral and decided it's my wedding not theirs!!!
I know you are getting married in Mexico & I am in Jamaica but I am so excited there is someone else for June 2013!!!!! I'm not alone anymore!!!! If you have any questions or you need to vent!! I am here!!! Good luck planning!!!
