    Hey guys!

    Dougsgirl! I will have to check out BBB per your suggestion. Honestly we don't need to register for much but I do want to get some linens. I am thinking we may register at two places (macy*s and target or maybe bbb & target?) My sis has our bridal shower planned for 21 June, 2 weeks before our big day.

    Maura... that brazilian steakhouse sounds YUM! I LOVE a good brazilian steakhouse! There is one we go to called Texas de Brazil. It's beyond delish!

    All of our weddings are seriously seriously getting close! I AM SO HAPPY!!!

          i know.... im having major anxiety that the wedding is so close! i feel like i have so much left to do! i know that i dont, but im a worrywart.

          here's whats left on my to do list for the july ceremony:
          - flowers (already have a bouquet but need some for decorating our house for the little cake & champagne reception of 10 people)
          - need to buy champagne (will do that probably this week or next)
          - schedule a pedicure and underarm waxing for the day before the ceremony and pay for it in advance so i dont have to worry about it the day of
          - already paid for my hair appointment, just have to show up the day of
          - need lipstick!
          - need to print out the keepsake invitations for our parents and mail one to our officiant

          i think that's it....

            Hi all, I have been offline for a few weeks trying to get things sorted for work, life, wedding etc.. I can't believe it's June, about 6 weeks to go until big day. You guys all sound like you have it under control.

            What's left to do.. mmm let me think
            - clean shoes - I am wearing shoes I already had for a ball as they are so comfy and they are perfect.
            - have second dress fitting, first one it was a little big, which reminds me I should post some photos of the fitting
            - stress about my hairstyle as I can't seem to find one I like
            - finishing off labels for candy jars for candy station
            - have typed up programs just need to print and cut (should really start now as it is going to take ages)
            - fix earrings, I made my own but when I tried on with the dress they were a little long so need to adjust
            - finish off making a couple of things for my hens (bachelorette) costume party
            - sort out menu and alcohol (very important)
            - buy baskets for the flower girls for their rose petals and get them presents, no idea what to buy them, ages 8, 9, 10 an 12
            - and I am sure I have forgotten something but I feel really good about it all and it's not keeping me awake at night so that is good..

            Getting excited....
