Hiya Jennaba3!

 

My wedding is May 11, 2012 and I still have a lot to do.  I'm not sure if you've already done it, but a guest list would be the first thing to do and then save the dates...and at the same time try to sort our a colour scheme ;-)  When I made our guest list I went through it and tried to guess who would come and who wouldn't.  I was close in the guesstimate although there are still many people on the fence (waiting for a deal) even though our booking deadline has passed.

 

Anyway to get back on track you might as well go dress shopping now.  I actually purchased my dress BEFORE we put our deposit in with the resort, lol.  Many stores will hold it for you until the wedding and in my case I'll do my alterations 6 weeks before the wedding.  Same goes for the BM's dresses.

 

As for the suits now would be a good time as many summer items are on sale.  However we've decided to wait until March 2012 when the new spring/summer collections come in.  Men are pretty easy to buy for so I'm not too worried about this.

 

Everything else like Favours, OOT's bags, gifts, etc you can get whenever, but I would recommend doing so once you know how many people are coming.  In my case we haven't purchased anything yet.  I'll probably start Nov - Jan.  We probably STILL won't know the final number, but I'm not too worried as a BDW bride recommended to purchase items in quantities of 50...then sell the extras online here so you don't lose any money.

 

Hope this helps!  Happy planning.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
