  • Wedding: April 2011

We are doing the following:

-Groom and his GMs/ other friends are getting their suits (ties are already purchased).

-Finishing wedding ceremony

-Starting iPod playlist for ceremony and reception (I plan to get the ceremony music finished by the end of this month and the reception music finished by the end of April).

-Sending out invitations– oh yea!!! They’re already addressed and stamped– I’m just waiting until mid-March to send them out (but I’ve already sent the Out of Town invites).

That’s it. Everything else that can be done now is done. Feels so good!

@Ugoob: Ditto.  Essentially nothing is going right.  At least we don’t have to worry about financing the bulk of it.
