2 Months to go!
Well, we're officially at the 2-month mark.
Invites went out today, so watch your mail!
Here's a general idea of what we have left to do:
Videographer (if we want one)
Finalize ceremony music
Ceremony programs (if we want them)
Guy wear (it's chosen, just gotta get you guys together to get fitted)
Finalize dress (it's being hemmed right now)
Decide on hairdo
Set up hair and nails times for day of
Finalize menu & other food details
Music (need to decide if we want an particular songs played)
Choose different posed pictures
Wedding day timeline
Please tell me I'm not forgetting anything!! All you recently married folks, was there anything you had to do last minute? Or something you wish you'd had more time to plan?

Invites look great! Nice work guys! I have never seen anything like this. Colors and style are excellent. Hell, even the font kicks butt!
The only thing I can tell you (because you seem to be like me and like "to-do" lists) is to imagine every detail of the day starting with the day before, then make your list based on that.....picture everything happening and that will help. Also, Wedding magazines usually have to-do lists that give you ideas (that's where I got the idea of the task list!)
p.s. one thing I wish I would have researched is whether the hotel provided any type of transportation to and from wedding site b/c it would have saved a lot of people driving (shuttle?)
p.p.s. plan as well as you can, but remember that once the days hit, things may not go according to that plan (but because you had a plan before, it will help)
and don't forget you've got friends who want to help you out!!
