4 months to go! What is still on your checklist??

I know Trish posted a 4 months to go post earlier, but I wanted to add to it & see where everyone is at.
What have you gotten done & what are you still needing to do?
Is there anything that you are really stressing about??

    I'm starting to stress as well...
    Let's see, our list includes:
    • Not kill FI because he hasn't asked his BM and I told him it had to be done by end of Feb and it's almost end of March!
    • Finish invites
    • Reserve hotel blocks (end of this week)
    • Not kill FI because he hasn't even gotten half way on figuring out Honeymoon and that's supposed to be booked by end of month!
    • Figure out WTH I'm doing about keeping my dress off the grass
    • Have face-to-face meeting with florist
    • Buy some dang shoes!
    • Schedule dress fittings
    • Figure out who's doing my hair!
    • Figure out my makeup
    • Make pomanders (waiting until after we move)
    • Make other paper stuffs (after invites are done)
    • Order tea sandwiches (April list)
    • We're iPod DJing everything so have to get those song lists made
    • Not kill FI because he often enjoys doing music lists but is listless about helping with  generating one!
    • Figure out how to do ceremony music
    • um...oh, heck there's more but that's off the tip of my head.

    KTS - you need to tell FI that you are going to do it yourself! That's rediculous! FI JUST told his BM that he was the BM last week, so I was in the same boat!

    Sara - Your list just added to my list :(
    I was thinking up stuff & then I figured I would go to my TK checklist... holy crapola! I did although check off some of the 2-3 month stuff so that's good... but i'd say half of the 2-3 month stuff and on I still need to do...
    Here are some of my items on my list...

    Need to finish GM gifts and bm gifts.
    Figure out all songs for ceremony, cake cutting, special dances... all those songs
    Need to make must play and don't play lists for DJ
    Need to schedule an appt for alterations
    Need to finish buying the GM clothes
    Need to do trials for hair and makeup

    inalize your invitation wording  & orderNeed to figure out if we’re doing program fans
    We’re going thru a restaurant for food, & we haven’t even started that process!
    Start buying alcohol for reception.
    Make a drawing of our reception room, cake table, buffet tables, etc…
    Start a day of timeline
    Purchase FI's wedding band.

    If you want, I can email you my checklist of what I have written down that needs to get done. To make it a little less overwhelming, I did just assign each task to a month, but it's a little long to post here. (I'm sure I've forgotten somethings, too)

    What isn't on my list.

    1) I need to get my invitations figured out, but my weekends have been so busy that I haven't been able to sit down and really dig in.  
    2) I also need to call the florist to figure out what I can get within my budget.  
    3) Lastly, I need to get BM dresses wrapped up.  2 of my BMs still need to pick their dresses, and the one who has needs help figuring out where to order the dress and what to do about alterations.  Sigh.

    Carrie, my bms all ordered their dresses at the end of February & we we told they would have them in in June. I don't mean to stress you (or anyone else) out even more, but you better tell those 2 bms to get their tushes in gear!
