18 Days!

Just 18 more days! Woohoo! It's getting closer and we are sooooooooo excited! :)

Haven't done a checklist update in quite some time, so I thought I'd throw it up today. We've managed to nearly knock out the list. Some of the last things we really need to focus on this week - getting our key music selections and timeline for the reception to the DJ. Getting our music selections (just a few songs) on my iPod to be played during the ceremony via our coordinator. Yes, decided a coordinator was a must for my OCD, list making, wanting perfection on our wedding day mind! She is a friend of mine who is a take-charge kinda gal and I know she'll be a great help. I take my dress tomorrow night to a family friend to have the straps shortened (which I always knew I needed to do). Eric is responsible for figuring out the last 2 wedding party gifts. Other than those things, we are ready to roll. The biggest component is just waiting on the day before the wedding for the final decorating, rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.
