    I agree - not tacky at all!! You do what feels right and works for you.

    YAY!!!! I don't think we've had anything purchased from our registry. And my friend who talked about throwing a shower for me seems to have flaked out. Frankly, I don't feel like bringing it up again anyway - it is what it is.

    Pshaw..you have your dresses, that's what's important!!! 

    You must be so excited. My FI is still without his suit but i have my two dresses.

     

    I'm hoping to get back into the wedding DIY crap this weekend, but I really have wedding-planning fatigue. I'm almost over it all at this point lol

     

    Meanwhile my FI is getting all hardcore about planning the music for the reception. We had a 30 minute conversation about various apps for DJ music, types of music he wanted to include, blah blah blah. And by "we had" I mean he went on and on for 30 minutes while I nodded and tried to feign interest! boys...they are funny.

      yup! invites out. and i absolutely LOVE them. we did the boardng pass invites and received so many compliments.  My cousin actually made them for me, and she is amazing! Better than I expected. Bought our flight tickets to the DR (finally) a couple of days ago...only $298. I couldn't believe I found them so low. I've never paid that little to go to the DR. what else. waiting on folks to finish booking, as they only have 1 week before final payments are due for the hotel.  AND I almost forgot...got a call today that my dress has arrived at the store! time for a fitting!!

      Look at you go! I'm making boarding pass invites as well!! Post pics! I want to see yours!!!! :)

       

      $298?!?! That is amazing!!!! I'm so jealous!! Since we are traveling thanksgiving week (getting married on Black Friday, lol) our direct flight to Cancun is $600!!! ugh!!! Our final payments for both are due Oct 5th..so we still have time!

       

      Yay for dress being in!! I need to take my dress to my fiance's grandma's house as she is altering my dress for me!

        We are going to be right near each other. We are getting married 11-21 in Playa del carmen. Flying into Cancun as well so I hear you on the ticket prices...ouch!

        How's planning going?

        How fun!! Ya the ticket prices suck!! But with so many of our friends as teachers, my mom is a teacher's aide and my sister and my fiance's brother are in college- we didn't really have any other options- Thanksgiving or Christmas. 

         

        It's going well- I try and check a couple things off my list every week/weekend.  I am super busy though right now- we are in the midst of buying a house and one of my best friends is getting married Sept 22nd, so we have her bachelorette party next weekend.  It's a little overwhelming, but it's all fun and will be worth it!! I won't know what to do with myself after Nov, I'll be so bored, haha.

         

        How's planning for you?

          Hi Ladies,

           

          I wish I had found this sooner!  I'm getting married at Aventura Spa Palace on November 11th, 2012.  I would love to hear how your planning is going!

          congrats and welcome to the roll call!!! 

           

          my planning is pretty much on track - just some minor things left to take care of, and I'm right at 2 months to go.
