Oh yeah, that's right...I'm getting MARRIED!

So, here we are, it's officially the middle of November (ok, closer to the end now) and I am less than 5 months away from The Big Day. If you recall, back in January I posted my annual "31 Days" series and asked you a variety of questions about weddings. 
Thank you, by the way, for all of your advice: it was GREAT!
Now, eleven months later, I'm ashamed to say that I'm not all that much further ahead than I was in January! Here is what I have done:
1) I have the dress
2) We have the venue (reception and ceremony) booked
3) We have an officiant
4) We have wedding party members
5) We have a photographer
6) We have a DJ

Now that may SEEM like an impressive list, but here is what we still need:

1) A guest list
2) A menu
3) Save the Date cards
4) Invitations
5) Flowers
6) Bridesmaid dresses
7) Book a honeymoon
8) Register for gifts
9) Select a song
10) Select a THEME
11) Select wedding favors
12) Ceremony details (i.e., who walks mom down the aisle, etc.)
13) all of the other wedding details that I know I am forgetting but that are vital to the day of festivities

On top of all of that, I am a very busy speech-language pathologist and an even busier artist/business owner! I'm working hard to keep bel monili running full steam ahead whilst trying to masquerade as a good, organized bride.

This is where you come in. My plan is to start using this blog as a kind of journal, and I'm going to need your help to keep me on track. Hold me accountable for getting things done by asking questions, posting pictures, and/or giving suggestions...I need the support of the masses here!
