    ^^AHH!!! How exciting, Maura!!!

    Ladies, I wanted to share this with you. Brides.com sent me this 1-month-to-go Check-off list that I thought you guys may find helpful, too:

    Congratulations: Your wedding is just 1 month away!
    Stay on schedule by tackling these tasks.

    Call guests who have not mailed back their response cards.
    Make your place cards.
    Finalize your vows.
    Pick up your wedding dress.
    Confirm your honeymoon reservations.
    Decide whether you want a ceremonial send-off, with rose petals or bubbles; purchase these materials.
    Give must-shoot lists to your photographer and videographer.
    Give must-play and do-not-play lists to your reception musicians.
    Distribute wedding-weekend task lists to key helpers.
    Do some stress-relieving activity every day.
    Apply for your marriage license.

        Call guests who have not mailed back their response cards. need to send my civil ceremony invites this weekend, theyre all confirmed as coming, the invite is just a formality at this point.
        Make your place cards. not doing this since only 8 guests for civil ceremony and not doing a sit down dinner with all of them
        Finalize your vows. NEED TO DO THIS!
        Pick up your wedding dress. NEED TO GET MY ALTERATIONS ON THE CIVIL CEREMONY DRESS! shouldnt take long, just have to actually go to the tailor to have it taken up a few inches. must do that in the next week because i have TTD shoot with a local photog on june 22nd
        Confirm your honeymoon reservations. DONE, my FI took care of this
        Decide whether you want a ceremonial send-off, with rose petals or bubbles; purchase these materials. not doing this one :)
        Give must-shoot lists to your photographer and videographer. my dad is shooting our civil ceremony since he used to be a wedding photog. i will give him the sheet of photos to be sure to get when i see him this weekend
        Give must-play and do-not-play lists to your reception musicians. we just got this questionnaire for our DJ for cabo, so we need to sit down to fill it out
        Distribute wedding-weekend task lists to key helpers. i need to make lists of these things for both the CC and the DW!
        Do some stress-relieving activity every day. trying to :)
        Apply for your marriage license. we have to do this the last week of june. i already got all the requirements: need state ID and $30 cash fee

                Wow. Your seamstress has some nerve. Tell her to frog off! LOL. :) How rude! I am sure your BMs will look lovely! I've gotta do that CD for the band-break thing, too. Your wedding is a day before mine! :)
