 Walk down the aisle & say I do!
Wow! Looking at this list actually relieves me because we have a lot of everything is done.
But, a quick glance at my real to do list brings me quickly back to reality. 
Now, it's just the little stuff - Eyebrow appointments, juice cleanses, tracking down the non-RSVPers, paying vendors, teeth whitening, wrapping presents - you know, all the stuff that doesn't get put on the list but takes a lot of time.
I will say, I'm thankfully getting to a relaxing place and starting to get really excited for the entire weekend to take place! It's going to be one for the books!


  1. That picture with the glitter is SPECTACULAR!! I want it.

    You've got SO MUCH DONE!! Amazing.

    Not gonna lie though... this list still makes my stomach hurt. I think my stomach might hurt until... oh, September 24th.

  2. Thumbs up to "not doing a garter". I can't believe people actually do it. It's just so inappropriate - why would I want my grandparents seeing a man up my skirt!?

  3. I didn't wear a garter either and people thought I was crazy! Really isn't me though!

    Also, I didn't do a hair and make up trial either. I knew what I wanted by looking at bridal magazines and Pinterest so they were able to do exactly what I wanted by seeing pictures!

    This is so exciting! Love reading about it.


  4. eeeeek! You've accomplished so much! I feels like you just got engaged and now the wedding is right around the corner! The party is about to begin; enjoy it girl!

  5. Love following your wedding journey! Keeps me informed on all I have left to do. Eeeek!
