Okay so, maybe I don’t have as much done as I’d thought…but hey!  I have the big, gets-booked-fast things out of the way.  With about ten months left until the big day, the majority of the tough things are over with, and we are totally free to relax!  For those of you recently engaged or soon-to-be engaged, I highly recommend working hard in the beginning to cross the super-important things off your list.  I can speak from experience- things get booked up quickly, especially those great vendors you are dying to secure!
