To Do Before I Do.

Well, as I mentioned in an earlier post, my wedding is in now under the 100 day mark.  With that being said, I have had to kick my butt in high gear getting ready to walk down that isle at the wedding of my dreams.  Unfortunately, these things cannot be just threw together overnight.  Weddings take LOTS of planning, and more often than not, come with a nice side dish of stress.

This is where I'm at right now and I feel like I will be until it's all over.  Now, don't get me wrong.  I love my future husband, and I love my wedding theme/plans/etc., but I'm really looking forward to being an old married woman who helps the next bride-to-be. :)

So, what's been up with the wedding lately?  Well, I'm glad you asked!  This week I have got some things crossed off my list that I had hoped to do.
1. Ordered invitations!
2. Bought supplies for my favors!
3. Bought server set.
4. Ordered bridesmaid jewelry.
5. Started thank-you notes for the gifts we have already received!

I am getting so pumped to start really crossing things off that I've had on "the list" for months.  This coming weekend I think I'll go shopping for some supplies that I'm going to need for a few wedding crafts.  And then the next weekend I'm hoping to get some of those in the works with the help of one of the bridesmaids who offered her services, haha.  :)

I know I said this stuff is stressful, but it's fun too.  I'm making memories during this process and on my wedding day I can stand a little taller knowing I did this myself!  A little pat on my back! :)

Stay tuned for more wedding details coming Friday!

&& just to keep myself on the right track,  I'm going to post my updated to do list.  However, this is constantly changing because I keep adding things to it.  HA!
