    Hello Ladies -  

     

    I'm getting married on 9/1/12 and I'm not sure if I'm on track with my planning or if I'm behind??? 

     

    So far this is my 'To Do' list...  I'm sure I have more to add to the list, but I haven't thought of it yet. 

     

    I have a lot of DIY projects and I'm so stressed about getting them done in time and bringing everything with me to Mexico.  Any help or suggestions, would be great!!!

     

    Thank you!

    It looks like you are where you should be for planning.  The only ones that I would consider doing asap is the bridesmaid dresses as they can take awhile to come in if you are ordering from a bridal shop and also the invitations.

      I keep seeing everyones "to do" lists.. But I'm curious if anyone can direct me to a website that has a to do list for us destination wedding brides...? I can find normal ones all day, I just know ours can vary a lot.

       

      As far as travel mugs. Dollar Tree has some nice ones for only $1 you could have them vinyled or put personalized  waterproof stickers on theme.. Just a thought. But Ive seen them in Blue and in Black. You may be able to find them on their website. Dollartree.com ,I  believe.

       

      Passport, allurements by Rebecca.. he is amazing, and very sweet! I ordered some samples from her etsy page last week, hoping when I get home from Atl they will be in my mailbox. :o) Also, you can check Etsy, I've seen several people who do them.

       

      OOT Bags.. There are a TON of great templates on here. Just search OOT bags. But if you didn't pay to be a member of this site you'll have to get your post count up to like 130 before you can view the templates.. "I'm getting there"  lol....

       

      Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, I can try to help. I'm still in the beginning stages of the wedding planning, but I have done a TON of research lately.. It's taking over my life.. lol. :o)

      Wedding Wire's list includes a number of DW items. It isn't perfect though. I am just keeping my own - and it's mostly mental. Which is what wedding planning is making me. Yup, total obsession...
