I’m getting so excited!!!! We’ve had a long engagement, so 8 months seems like nothing to me at this point! We have all the big things covered so now I have to start my diy projects and order the invitations I picked out months ago. Save the Dates just arrived in my guest’s mailboxes and I’m getting such great feedback already! Loves it!
Get it Perfect Tens! 🙂

I found a great little Iphone app called Iwedding. It has a nice little checklist that has todo’s on certain dates before the wedding. I’m also a 10-10-10, but you all are much further then me in booked items.
