Oh good thread!

I just need to organise:

  • hair/makeup artist (probably going to do makeup myself though) 
  • Celebrant
  • Decorations (have a company in line, just need to work out specifics)
  • Honeymoon
  • My new e-ring (long story short, I’ll be swapping out my aquamarine for a moissy) and wedding band
  • Music (probably Ipod)
  • Timeline for the day!

I feel so accomplished in what we’ve done so far ๐Ÿ˜€ But both starting new jobs (recently for me, hopefully in the next few weeks for my man!) means having to have things organised before now.

We are 99% done! The only thing we have left to do is send out the invitations (which I have already started addressing) and arrange the transportation from the hotel to the venue.

Oh and my dress alterations.
