    I can't even think about what still needs to be done... Give some time and I'll post it all! I did do the invitations the other night with my mom though, they just need stamps and they're off!

      I love lists. Lists get me through the day. I have an on-going Wedding Stuff list actually. At all times, I carry my little notebook around in my purse. Just in case I think of something else I need to do or another song I hear on the radio that I want to add to the play list.

      Here's what I have on my list of things to do for my October wedding:
      Find Tommy Bahama shirt for groom and his father (we're not having a wedding party - they're it)
      Order guest book from The Knot
      Order Polaroid camera for guest book
      Organize growing pile of bridal magazines in corner of bedroom along with all other bridal junk
      Order wedding flipflops
      Find shoes! Yes - I must have both
      Get dress altered (need shoes first)
      Get final proof of invitations (why won't she call me back?)
      Get invitations addressed by calligrapher
      Mail invitations
      Ceremony Programs
      Order fans for ceremony programs
      Arrange and mail PV packets for wedding guests
      Get mini-maid's dress for my daughter - not really a bridesmaid, not a MOH, but a mini-maid : )
      Print place cards
      OOT bags
      Order Spanish for Dummies for OOT bags
      Make centerpieces and cake toper
      Find wedding bands

      So much of this depends on how many people will actually be coming to the wedding, too. My webpage on The Knot really has been helpful with a list of Things to Do, too.

      I've got so much to do! This is scary looking at this list...

        This made me LOL...I have a huge stack in my bedroom. My housekeeper finally organized them for me and put them on a chest I have in front of my bed. She probably thinks I am nuts!

              Ok so I just ordered my wedding bubbles. I dont even think that was on my list. Now I need to come up with a better slogan than "blow me"
