Makes me look so lazy.  I have finished a bunch, but still a ton to do.  Table numbers, menus, boutenierres (sp?), bathroom baskets, stickers for the favors, photo share cards, card box and many other things still to be figured out.  I feel like I am on track, but I better not lose my focus in the next 3.5 months!

Congrats on being so productive!!

I’m also going to look and see what I can find to inspire me for an untraditional guest book when we go to the flea market for the vases and our cake stands.  And I’m not sure yet if we’re going to do escort cards or not.  We only have six tables so I’m wondering if I should just make signs that say “Reserved for Bride’s immediate family” and “Reserved for Groom’s immediate family” for those two tables closest to us.

Oh, and we have to rent the chairs for the ceremony! I have it all written down, I just can’t think of it all off the top of my head.  I just know we have six tables because it’s a small room for just a sit down dinner reception.  We’ll probably have around thirty people and we want to sit alone so I figure if we just reserve the tables for our immediate families it should be fine.  I’m sure I’ll go back and forth between now and March 6th though.

@noritake22: I just looked through your venue’s website a little more and I loved the movie Rose Red! I’m jealous, it’s such a beautiful place.
