100 days to go...

In a blast of efficiency (or foolishness) I installed a countdown clock on my Google Desktop a while ago which is how I now know that there are 100 days left until our wedding day. eeeeeeeek.

Of course I remember getting engaged and thinking that six months, three months, 100 days etc. were all seemingly decades away and I'd have plenty of time to plan beautiful details without any ever having to worry about anything stressful or boring like remembering to pay deposits or finish never-ending invitations. Real-life tends to bring beautifully wishy-washy details into slightly too sharp focus.

So, in a fit of honesty and in a bid to encourage my overworked yet lazy bum into action this is what I've done so far:

  • Ordered dress
  • Booked venue
  • Booked legal ceremony venue
  • Booked photographer (very excited about this!)
  • Sent invitations
  • Decided against 'proper' bridesmaids
Still to do
  • Finish wedding website
  • Help guests with accommodation bookings
  • Find and book DJ (arghhh)
  • Create 'Do Not Play' list for DJ
  • Find suitable person to alter wedding dress
  • Create list of essential shots for the photographers
  • Send paperwork to official people
  • Finalise menu options
  • Finalise cake/pudding options
  • Organise some sort of table decoration
  • Organise some sort of ceremony/venue decoration
  • Book taxis for guests
  • Get some sort of undergarment to wear with dress
  • Find and buy shoes
  • Find or buy accessories
  • Select and buy makeup
  • Check the groom isn't attending in his underwear
  • Organise transport to and from the wedding
  • Book flights
  • Organise honeymoon
  • Buy swimwear
So not much to do...

More people ought to check this out and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you're not more popular given that you most
    certainly possess the gift.
