So ladies...since we are all getting married in 2016 I am sure we have all been getting busy on the planning-front. Where is everyone at in the planning process? Have you found all of your vendors yet? Your dress? Ordered invitations yet? Lets rally and share some support and resources with each other.
I have my venue confirmed at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites for August 6, 2016. Just decided on my photographer and travel agent and am preparing to launch our website and electronic save-the-dates next week. I am also planning to DIY save-the-date magnets and passport invitations (with a little help from my dear bridesmaids). I have not really looked for my dress yet though I have a general idea of what I would like, taking into account of course that Jamaica in August will be nothing short of ridiculously HOT!
Curious to hear what some other brides are working on...

I'm getting married at the Royalton White Sands in June. I have my dress :-) and photographer. I'm trying to figure out will my DJ be traveling with us as a guest or will we go with the resort DJ, or my ipod. I sent out my save-the-date email/evite in August because I wanted to give my guests as much notice as possible. I have a wedding website set up as well and try to put updates on there.
I'm really trying to figure out welcome bags and décor right now. It looks like we'll have about 100 people so I want to be cost effective but not cheap, if that makes sense. Also, I refuse to pay $40 a table cloth at the resort so I bought my own online from linentablecloth.com. For flowers, I'm going with satin flower bouquets from a seller on Etsy - HeyBouquet. I ordered a small sample from her and it's really nice so I will use that as my toss bouquet.
I'm making my own brooch bouquet. I've collected about 30 brooches so far and plan to buy a few lots off ebay or etsy.
That's all for now, I'll check back in soon!

I too am getting married at the Royalton in May. I have done the following:
- Save the dates
- Dress - Woohoo!
- Guest deposits all made
- Wedding Bands
I decided before I started planning that I would tackle one item at a time. I have a very demanding job and don't want to be overwhelmed. I want to enjoy the entire planning and not stress or dread. I am currently working with our florists for our floral for our centerpieces and bouquets. I too am having a broach bouquet done.
I haven't decided on table clothes either. Tinren - what kind of table clothes did your order? Have you received them yet? I am afraid of ordering table clothes and them being too heavy to take with us.
We are using the hotel DJ. I've researched and found their preferred vendor. I can give you the company name if you would like. I have it written down somewhere at home.

@Lisa35, sorry for the delay in responding, I was on vacation. I ordered the 120 in Navy Blue Polyester table cloths. They came about 5 days after I ordered them. They were very good quality and I don't see any problem with being able to sell them after the wedding. I don't think they're too heavy; less than 50 lbs so I'm just going to make someone take them as their 2nd piece of luggage, lol.
I'm nervous about the hotel DJ, I see mixed reviews. The DJ we were using is a family friend so he was supposed to be coming to the wedding anyway but he hasn't booked yet so I'm not depending on him. I downloaded the wedding DJ app so I may use that or get mixtapes made at home.

I am getting excited! A bit over 6 months! @tinren, I am getting married at RWS ,June 4,2016. When in June are you getting married?
I totally forgot about table cloth! I am so thankful for this forum. So far I have done the following:
Centrepiece ( white lanterns and candles)
Bought mini star fish for table card
Guest deposit ( still have few more guest who haven't )
White and royal blue petals ( for the wedding ceremony)
Wedding dress ( Said Yes to the dress on Sat!!)
White Parasols for myself and my bridesmaids ( not a huge fan of flower).
Planning on using the hotel DJ. Hoping he is good.
Royal blue and white Ribbons for the chairs
Yes, I am a fan of DIY projects
I really need help in finding a photographer & videographer and affordable flying lanterns
Would love to get some input.
