-attend shower and bachelorette parties

-buy and make placecards

-maybe make menu cards

-marriage license

-finalize ceremony 

-confirm times with limos, and shuttles from the hotel for guests

-figure out who is driving us back to the hotel after the wedding

-hair trial

-finalize flowers with florist

-get a list of must have shots for photographer

-get a list of songs for DJ

-take dance lessons with my fiance

-get wedding bands sized

-make centerpieces (though my cousin is taking full charge of that)

-finishing buying a few bridal party gifts

-finalize menus or rehearsal dinner and wedding


probably a bunch of other little stuff too, but nothing too major
