    Hi ladies, I never thought I would say this but I reading all your posts are making me nervous!  I don't have my guest count so I haven't done anything related to OOT.  I haven't thought of ceremony details, etc.. my dress will only be ready end of May..  Am I screwed or what??  So much going on here..

      You'll be fine and you're wedding will be beautiful!!  The whole point of doing a destination wedding (for me at least) is to not sweat the small stuff!

        Don't worry! I felt the same way reading all this stuff! I saw all these awesome projects and I'm like I don't even know what vistaprint is or how to use it!! I tried it, fretted that all my welcome bag stuff wouldn't match like these awesome talented ladies' do but then I just said no biggie! I still put thought and detail into everything I'm doing. One thing that helped me is I made a big list of everything that has to get done from music selections to my brooch bouquet to ordering BM dresses to buying a garter. Then I separated that list into months based on how long it would take, not doing it too early etc. (I did this only in Jan) and so now instead of feeling overwhelmed by so much stuff I can just look at that list, know when it needs to be done and also know that I'm not NOT getting something done but rather it just isn't the month to do it! :) makes me feel better atleast and it has literally made the stress disappear! D

        @natalieblev- that is a great idea! I have a similar timeline but it could be more detailed. Yours sounds very detailed. It's definitely a great way to stay on top of things. I am a huge list maker so if I write it on the list I will put my mind to it and get it done. That's what works for me.

        Does anyone know how to organize Escort Cards? Is it by table numbers or last name?

        I think it will work best by last name so that people can easily find their name. Everyone knows the alphabet, but if you do it by table number, they will have to read every table until they get to their name.

        I actually posted a question on another board last night related to your post MK...everyone on here talks about vista print, what do you get with them. I'm tempted to buy this (bc let's be honest, I love groupons) but I'm not sure what I'd use it for.

        I know I already posted some things I did with vistaprint and so did some other brides, but I thought I'd go ahead and share what I got with my $100 groupon for vistaprint... I used my $100 groupon today.... Holy savings!!! I combined my groupon with a "retailmenot.com" coupon code and got a TON of stuff! For 41.00 including shipping, I got 279.00 worth of vistaprint stuff! I got: 9 custom t shirts that I designed for the men in the wedding party and our parents 2 sets of 50 rack cards full color front and back 1 lawn sign to say "shoes optional" at the ceremony. Obviously the t shirts were the most expensive part... But how can you argue with getting 9 plus other stuff for 41 bucks?! That's what I call a deal! :)
