I keep wondering if I am missing something. I may have found the ultimate list though and I thought I would share it. sharemywedding org I bought three different books and a binder to help me organize everything but I felt like I was going in circles. I think this is finally helping me. I do need help with a venue though. Does anybody now of a nice place in the New Orleans area that has something like a ballroom to rent for the ceremony and reception together? I am looking for elegant but not overly obnoxious in price. I figure reaching out for recommendations is the best place to start and they will probably have lists of vendors.
