Our wedding is very small, so I’m really not stressing. No wedding party, no honeymoon yet and I’m doing my own hair and make up. We’ve booked the church and I’ve ordered the dress. That’s about it.

What I have left is:

find a venue

find a caterer

decide on a photographer

get a suit for FH

buy rings

DIY invites

crochet a lot of flowers

and a few other smaller projects.
