One Month!

Eek, I just hit the one month mark today.  We are in the home stretch ladies!  What are your current projects?  I'm trying to get FI to sit down for more than 5 minutes so that we can put together a list of songs that we definitely want played.  We got our marriage license last week (yay!) and have our rings, but we need to get them engraved still.  I have my final fitting next week, so hopefully I'll be able to take my dress home then (and try to strategically hide it).  What about you guys?

    We are one month tomorrow. Oh my gosh!!!!!! I feel pretty much ready, there are just a few more projects to do.

    1. finish table numbers
    2. hair trials are scheduled for next week
    3. final meeting with the photographer next week
    4. book our videographer
    5. bake our cakes (yes, I'm crazy!)
    6. print programs, but I can't do that until I know who is in our wedding party (one of my BM's had to have a kidney removed last week and might not be totally healed, so I have a friend who is the 'understudy" if needed).
    7. escort cards once RSVP's are in next week

    Wow! I can't believe it's so close! When we got engaged in December it felt sooooo far away!

    I am at the 1 month mark today as well! I am so excited and ready for the day to just be here! :)
    I have my bridal shower and bachelorette party this weekend so I am really excited for those events. My FI has been awesome this week and did a bunch of stuff for me, I am very lucky I know not all grooms are so helpful! He did the seating chart, paid the reception site, and scheduled a meeting with our pastor for next week. Also a bunch of stuff I ordered for our centerpieces is arriving today so I can't wait to get home and see them!
    Here is my to-do list:
    1. Design & print programs (after meeting with pastor)
    2. Make escort cards & finalize seating chart
    3. Final hair trial this weekend before my shower & bach. party
    4. Buy garters
    5. Get final estimate from florist & make adjustments if needed
    6. Figure out table numbers
    7. Finish sewing bridesmaid tote bags (part of their gift)

    Whew, I think that is most of the major to-do's I have left!

    <div>Haha! I owned a bakery, so it's expected that I have cake, but we weren't going to have any, but my FI wanted a cutting cake, but then I decided we should have more for those people that have to have their cakes. So I'm just making 5 8" cakes, freezing them until right before the wedding, then doing a really quick frost that looks like roses all over them. It takes less than 30 minutes/cake. :) We are having a frozen yogurt company do our legit desserts. :)</div>
