Well, I guess it is my turn to start my own planning thread! I had read so many helpful planning threads on this awesome forum and I thought I would do the same.
I am 124 days away until my wedding (but who is counting) and I thought I would post my ideas to not only help others, but also as a way to keep me accountable to my planning. I have truly loved reading other bride's planning threads and will try to share as much as possible to help someone else in their early stages of planning. The benefits of the forum have been so great and I am so grateful for the generous brides that have been so busy planning their own fabulous weddings and still made it a priority to share for the rest of us.
We are getting married June 20, 2015 at the Grand Sunset Princess. We have been to this resort twice and love, love, love, love it!! We are really looking forward to going back and just feeling absolutely confident in the service and quality of the hotel. So my head has been clouded with to-do lists and I had been really overwhelmed as soon as we transitioned from 2014 to 2015. I have a destination wedding planner but I found that it was easy to tuck it away and it is over 200 pages so it's easy to miss a section.
We decided to experiment with a wall map. We put up some bristol board on a wall at home and my fiance and I started posting all the random things that we need to get done. All those little things like, "ask our flower girl" or "write vows" or "lose 60lbs" haha.
After mapping out our to do list it really helped put everything into perspective. As we get things done, we remove the sticky, and as we think of more things to do, we slap them on. It has really helped out and I have a better sense of what still needs to get done! Yay planning! xo
