            Outsource to your FI ;) We've gotten so much more accomplished now that we broke it down by date, and assigned who has what (the initials). That way we're each accountable for certain things. Everyone keeps asking if we're excited to get married. I'm like, "Um yeah, but at this point I'm really excited to go on vacation!!"

              Thats a great idea, I am doing it as we speak, That is SO true! Work threw me a shower yesterday and everyone was asking if I was excited and I replied with the same exact thing, for a vacation!!! Plus I have not taken this many days in a row off ever! LY I saved most my vacay days to carry over so I can take 2 1/2 weeks for wedding and 2 1/2 for HM (later this year).

                Wow just started to realize all the things I still need to do! Better get organized. Kinda fell off the planning waggon back in November after I ordered the dress, sent out the invites and booked the photographer.

                  I also had my bachelorette party recently.  I decided to give my bridesmaids their wedding gift that weekend because I knew they would all be buying things as we got closer to the date and didn't want them getting these items.  They absolutely loved them and were so grateful.  I'm glad because they have done so much for me!

                   

                  -Beach Bag (Indigo)

                  -Havaianas (Flip Flops)

                  -Lotion/Body Spray (Bath and Body Works)

                  -Lip Balm

                  -Personalized Luggage Tag (Michael's)

                  -Tumbler (Dollar Tree + Davet Designs Sticker)

                  -Nail File (Michael's)

                  -Sleep Mask (Michael's)

                  -Money/Room Key Holder (Ebay)
