It has been almost four months since I last updated the wedding to-do list.  

Well, a lot has changed since then… we have 3 months and 11 days until the wedding!

    One thing I noticed – if you're having your first fitting on Feb 15th and need alterations, will they be done in time for your bridal portraits on Feb 25th??

    Check out etsy! I didn't do a guest book because I figured it would sit around and collect dust afterwords. I ordered a photo off of pinterest which is our last name and our wedding date. The guest signed in the white matt area all around it. Plus, I get to hang it up for decoration. Also, they have a lot of other things you need on there too. Wedding Paper Divas (i hope I remembered the name correctly) is where I got my thank you cards for wayyy cheaper than the people who did out invites/save the dates. Plus, they looked fabulous. Just finish everything asap, so you don't have much to do the week or two before. I had everything done at least a month before the wedding (except the food favors), and I just got to chill out a little before the wedding. Thank goodness because the day of the wedding I had a stomach virus… even the whole night after the reception. But, it helped out that I had everything done.

    Good Luck!
