There really is so much to do - arrange the venue, the caterer, the baker, the flowers, the clothes for both the bride and groom and all the attendants. There are invitations to send out after narrowing down the list to what we're allowed at the venue. There's a wedding website to write up (you can see it if you're at all interested here) and rsvp's to keep track of and buying gifts for the attendants on both the bride and groom's sides. There are hair appointments to make and makeup appointments to make and music to write down and get onto a laptop or ipod....the lists just keep going on and on and on. A friend is making my guest book as she has her own little "Lost Arts Café" where she does hand crafted books and journals. We decided on the paper and colour scheme together so it's going to be lovely!
I think we're doing pretty well so far. Monday I saw the florist and the caterer and I must stop in at the bakery. I have my dress (to be fitted today), my shoes dyed to match, earrings and headpiece (no veil). The dress is tea length and we decided to have a noon wedding with a type of high tea luncheon afterwards. Then there will be an "after party" at our friends' place where we'll "get down" to the real partying.
One month from today (May 1st) is the big day and I'm getting very excited to finally marry the love of my life.

Don't forget to think of our legendary Denise who created this wonderful ABC Wednesday and of the laudable Roger, our administrator. Without them, we'd all be lost!
