Hi ladies! Now that we’re less than a year until our weddings, how much have you gotten done so far? Here’s my list of the big completions:
– Wedding rings (his and mine)
– Wedding dress (just ordered it a week ago!)
– Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (decided on, not ordered)
What are your completed items so far? Are you already feeling like time is flying, because I sure am starting to!

OMG you girls are so amazingly organized! I am way behind. We have:
-Our venue (both ceremony & reception at same site)
-My dress (well, it’s ordered anyway)
-Our colors (Yellow, gray, and white)
-Our wedding party (Actually, not true. There is one more groomsman to ask. My Fiance is seeing him next week and wanted to ask in person)
I don’t even have a caterer yet, though my Mom and I have our deadline set two weeks from now. Argh. I guess I can congratulate myself for having the ball rolling on many items… it’s stressful to think of all I still have left!
