      Eeek! Your wedding is close and thats some list! I feel ya though, I am not that far off either. I am actually a major procrastinator and still have a ton to do.
      My big accomplishment for today: I finally sent invites/newsletters.
      Here some things I still want to get done - a lot has gone by the wayside and we'll just go on to plan B for whatever doesn't get done.

      Still need to find shoes - have two in mind- but must shop around first
      Gifts for guests/ oot gifts - I may wait to buy down there
      Print /buy postcards for guests to mail to us instead of guestbook
      Shop for makeup
      Have manicure and hope my nails don't break before wedding - I've been growing the out
      Figure out what to do with hair - buy clip on hair? - get haircut- buy hair products
      Make appointment to get eyelash extensions
      Shop for bathing suits and cute resort clothes and shoes
      Print out the Language of Fans for my ceremony fans - maybe
      Compile and send photographer and videographer a list of musts
      Figure out Music - bug FI till he makes decisions - or spend more $$ for Romantic trio
      Stress about ceremony wording - haven't the slightest what will be said and I have specific hopes for this
