Well, If I do say so myself, I've tackled this list like a beast. My OCD kicks in and of course I color code what I've recently done and what I have left to do (Brides, I'm sure you can relate). And yes, there are a few other things that are not even on this list that I have yet to tackle, but I will be heading home an entire week before the wedding to prep for any final details, hair/spa appointments, you know the drill. I think I am finally getting to the point in my planning, that at the end of the day, Austin and I are going to be married. If the centerpieces don't turn out EXACTLY like I wanted, we'll live. If for whatever reason I'm clumsy and trip in my shoes, we'll laugh. And even if it pours down rain (it better not) we will still say our vows (inside of course). The two of us are honestly itching so bad for our big day to be here that we simply cannot stand it. 17 days and counting!!
