We still have quite a bit to do! Almost all of the decor table decorations/settings have been purchased. I tubs and tubs of wedding stuff in our spare bedrooms.. it’s seriously taking over!

Reception venue is officially booked, waiting on a callback to officially book the ceremony space, although we are already on the books, we just need to pay.

Still looking for a dj/photographer, struggly a bit with it.

@SarahTee:  Exciting! Sandals Antigua was one of the places we debated about going to for a while 🙂 we ended up going to St. Lucia but Antigua is on our list! You will,love Sandals, we were reallyntaken care of there. Saw that you were looking for suggestions…we did a “goirmet” popcorn bar. For about 115 people, we spent about $125. Definitely afordable and soooooo good. We did some sweet flavors, savory flavors, and just standard. It was a hit with the guests

Our honey moon is up in the air right now. FI just started a new job and will be in training for 18 months, and I’ll be starting a new job hopefully in april/may.. so we won’t be able to get the vacation time 🙁

Still to do:

Invitations/envelopes

Meeting with decor rental/design place on Tuesday

personal touch decorations (photos etc that I want to incorporate)

Groom(smens) suits

Yah, we are date twin!!! 

I haven’t get much done either, mostly because FI is so laid back………and I’m a lazy person to begin with. Right now I’m focusing on losing weight for engagement photos in April.  

Wedding favour: 

I am 80% sure this is what I’m getting for wedding favour.  My engagement photos theme is sakura, so this is on my list. The price will be cheaper as my MOH going to try getting it from China directly (it work out to be $1 each with packaging)

My FMIL is planning our honeymoon and surprising us with the details at the wedding so at least that one is off my checklist! We have most of the major things done and now just killing time…my still to dos:

Mail Save The Dates – Have them ready to go, just need to drop in the mail!

Invitations (out end of July probably)

Book salon makeup/hair for trial and day-of

Music List

Bridesmaid Dresses

Attendent Gifts

Cake

Marriage License 🙂

 

For favors I got personalized stickers that say “hugs and kisses from the new Mr and Mrs”, “xoxoxo” and others with our wedding date/names. I am going to stick them to the bottoms of Hershey Kisses in our wedding colors and then put them into little organza pouches. We got this awesome etched wood leaves off Etsy with our names and wedding date to tie on the outside of the favor bags.
