I’m getting married July 1st.  I’m happy to say that I only have a couple things left:

get marriage license~doing this on Friday

meet with DJ to finalize music~happening tomorrow

meeting with officiant to finalize ceremony~happening next week

final catering meeting~June 14th

That’s it!  I mailed final payments yesterday and got all my cash for tips from the bank today and put it in cards to give to our coordinators at our rehearsal.  My dress is done and just waiting to be picked up the day before the wedding, placecards/seating chart are done.

I told myself I didn’t  want to have anymore wedding stuff to do in the 2 weeks prior to the wedding except for fun stuff when my Maid/Matron of Honor and family comes into town.
