I was able to get all of this for $30.09 (free shipping for orders over $30!)

I don’t realize I have much left to do until I read all y’all’s lists; thanks! 

We still need to:

Apply for marriage license

Final dress fitting (tomorrow!)

Have a hair/makeup trial

Make an appointment to get my hands & feet pampered

Make favors – can’t do those until the day-ish before

Go through DJ’s wedding form thing

Make a who’s-who list for our photog of family & those we want in pics 

Check that the mini-video camera is operable and can hold power long enough for at least the ceremony!

Make sure Fiance has bought my wedding band!!

Assemble the adirondack chairs (our guestbook)

Begin thinking about the dinner we’re hosting the night before the wedding for our out of town guests & attendants (pizza & ice cream party, whawhaaaat!!)

Order the last of the flowers

Find someone to pick up our CSA basket while we’re in Costa Rica

Speaking of Costa Rica – I need to start daydreaming about monkeys and crocodiles and which bathing suits I’m going to pack. But not at the same time, that sounds dangerous.


If there’s anything I’m forgetting I’ll assume it’s not that important! & I actually think this list goes in order of importance by way of what I remembered first! I had to think really REALLY hard about the last two…

RSVPs are rolling in, hotel reservations are being made, and parties are being looked forward to!
