    Hello all, I am fairly new on the board, and I am kicking myself I did not join a long time ago. I am leaving for the wedding Sat May 24th late at night, so really May 25th (SUNDAY)
    I am going crazy and I still feel like I have so much to do. Can anyone give me a quick heads up on last minute details you really wished you had gotten around to but hadn't. I can't think straight at this point. Everyone I talk to says "oh you're going away there CAN'T be much to do"
    SO just any sort of help you can send my way would be great

      What have you done? With this little time I'd skip things like decorations, programs, OOT bags, etc. You really can just show up & get married. The rest is just extra.

        Is there anything you need to do for your dress? Shoes? Jewelry? I would jjyst focus on you at this point. Don't get yourself all worked up over the little stuff at this point.

        to you & your soon-to-be DH!

              Good luck! I hope it all works out beautifully!! Pretty much all you can do now is get everything packed and relax.

                I agree with everyone too, just go, get married & have the time of your life! Try to get as much done as you can before you leave but please don't stress too much over it. I too was up all night before we left & still forgot things at home. It bothered me on the plane and for a few days leading up to the wedding. But on the day of the wedding all the little things didn't matter at all.

                    I would just worry about packing everything and not sweat the little stuff. I'm sure your wedding will be wonderful. Goodluck and enjoy yourself!

                      Is packing all that is left to do? It doesn't take as much time as you would think either. I did mine HOURS before we left. LOL Granted I did forget a couple of minor things but still- it's doable. Just get it done earlier than a few hours and you will be golden.

                      I sat down and made a list of everything I needed. I started with wedding stuff and thought of all the crap I had purchased/made in the last year. I set it all out in the middle of my living room. I then mixed it up with my clothes to help keep things from breaking. It was super easy.
