I’d like to think we’re pretty much done! I think the only thing we have left to do is book our honeymoon and the rehearsal dinner.

Other than that we are waiting for a few things to arrive: my dress, flowers and chair covers. The wait is the worst, especially for my dress.

A few crafts and decorations.  I need to figure out how exactly I want to do my hair and makeup since I am doing it myself (AHH).  I need to have final meetings with my photographer, baker and officiant too.
