4 months until the big day! Crazy to think it's coming so quickly. Next month we begin to talk directly with our Wedding Planner and get all of the specific details confirmed, but we have all the major events booked. Excited and nervous! We haven't done a whole lot of DIY projects yet but plan to put together Program Paddles and our Escort Cards ourselves once we have all of the necessary details. Our invitations should be going out in the next 3 weeks, but we have 40 confirmed guests already! And my dress arrived at the salon this morning! Can't wait to go see it!

 

If anyone has good templates for Survival kits or something fun to add to our Welcome Bags, I would love to see those. My email is Linds173@gmail.com

@Lindsay30

That's awesome!! I really can't believe how fast time is flying and before you know it, it will be our one month countdown! I sent my invitations mid February with an April 25th deadline. I have 47 people booked and there might be a few more....Here I was thinking I would have 30-35 guests!

I'm going to have a simple OOT bag with just a few items including a tumbler. I will however be sending out pretravel brochures with luggage tags. I just finished working on the brochure and really like how it turned out!

      2 months!! Can't wait!
      Unfortunately I've been so swamped with work and heading out to LA tomorrow for a week for work so once I'm back, it's go time! I already have a list of things to get done Memorial Day weekend.

      We still need to get the rest of the OOT goodies but the rest of it is general stuff so I'm not too concerned. I'm making the programs and escort cards as soon as we have the final rsvps which are due May21st!

      We are buying lanterns to bring down there as part of our centerpieces. That's the major things we are bringing down with us so between those, the programs and escort cards, I think we will have 1 extra 'stuff' suitcase. Although I'm probably forgetting something major at the moment!

      I'm continuously finding more clothes to buy which I'm sure will be the case for the next 2 months. We leave for our honeymoon from Mexico so I have to pack for a 7 night wedding trip and a 9 night honeymoon! Eek!!! That's going to be tough!

      @Lindsay30 AWESOME! Even though it doesn't seem like it, we still have some time left for planning! Oh that's great you'll only have 1 extra suitcase. Of course I decided to have mason jars as centerpieces, so I have to figure out how to pack those (I think I might bubble wrap them). I have quite a few things between OOT goodies, table numbers, runners, centerpieces, maracas, lanterns, and a few more items and not including our clothes for the trip! :o  I'll have to have some of my family members take a suitcase for me. 

       

      I just can't wait! I actually keep having dreams of wedding day!

Of course I decided to have mason jars as centerpieces, so I have to figure out how to pack those (I think I might bubble wrap them). I have quite a few things between OOT goodies, table numbers, runners, centerpieces, maracas, lanterns, and a few more items and not including our clothes for the trip! :o  I'll have to have some of my family members take a suitcase for me.

      Ok I lied! After writing to you I sat down and really thought about all we have to bring and you are right, it is a lot more than I thought! Aaaaah. We are doing lanterns too so that and the OOT bags laid out flat will fit in one suitcase. Then we have all the OOT goodies, Programs and Escort Cards...Then clothes, lots and lots of clothes. We'll be gone for 19 days. How do you pack for that?!?!? We will definitely be doing laundry at the hotel before moving onto our honeymoon. We are also bringing a sand box type box (relatively thin but wide) to put the starfish escort cards in.. So I think between my fiance and I, we may have 3 suitcases each! Luckily my sister and her husband will be on the same flight as us so they can check in 2 of our suitcases. We thankfully are flying first class with all my travel miles through work so we can check in 2 bags for free each. So excited though!!! Things are finally wrapping up!

      Woohoo June is here!! It's crunch time... Now I'm starting to freak out because I feel like I have tons to do and still so many ideas floating around and now even more!! My bridal shower was yesterday and my sister did such a phenomenal job with decorations that I'm afraid she'll outdo mine :( Then I possibly have 3 more people coming which will put me to 60 guests!!!!!

      OMG we are totally on the same boat!! I've already filled up a suitcase! We will definitely need my sister to check in some bags for us too! We are also taking a serving tray for star fish escorts!!

      Lucky you! That will be an awesome trip.. I love to go on a honeymoon but we are just staying at the resort a few extra days!
