    Our photographer wants a list of people with whom we NEED shots (i.e. VIPs), then lists of all of the grouping we'll want, and whether we want them at the church or if we'd be ok getting them at Cairnwood later.  The issue is that our timeline is extremely tight AT the church but then we have some time afterwards.

    We also need to make a "must take photo" list - I've already started compiling some of these on Pinterest but I need to make a list for her.

    Yeah, but I'm going to be really specific (since she asked me to be) - For example, shot of shoes, shot of rings, bride's reflection in mirror, getting ready photos (putting on makeup, putting on dress, bridesmaids' reaction to bride in dress, groom tying bowtie, etc.), bride and groom holding hands, groom giving bride piggyback, etc..

    Pickup FI's wedding band.. get my E-ring resized
    Assemble centerpieces

    Create sign for guestbook
    Purchase items for OOT bags, create welcome letter, and assemble
    Finalize hotel/reception shuttle/room block
    Hair/Makeup trials (within the next 2-3 weeks)
    Finalize reception details (seating chart, what goes where, etc)
