I'm an April bride but this forum has by far helped me the most in my planning journey.  Sharing ideas and support and keeping it active!  I leave in the morning for Cayman and I'm so excited that the time is finally here! I'll be back to report on my experience! 

Congratulations! Cant wait to see pics! Enjoy every moment.

Outsource to your FI ;) We've gotten so much more accomplished now that we broke it down by date, and assigned who has what (the initials). That way we're each accountable for certain things. Everyone keeps asking if we're excited to get married. I'm like, "Um yeah, but at this point I'm really excited to go on vacation!!"
