  1. You must be getting so excited! Try not to let the stress take over :)

    A few tips for the to dos:

    - I didn't have my make-up done by a professional, I did it and a bridesmaid helped. I know people who have had their make-up done and they looked too made up.
    - Make a short list of wedding songs and if all else fails, pull one out of a hat. Ours was Sarah McLachlan's Push.
    - If you're stressed about numbers on the guest list, go ahead and invite the ones you're not sure about. I went back and forth on so many names and in the end cut a handful of people because our list was getting too long, and now I regret it. There will always be other people who don't come (sometimes people who rsvp yes don't come). We invited 200 and had 125 show up (we both live away from our families).
    - Buy a backup pair of shoes. I opted for a pair of pearly ivory Old Navy flip flops later in the evening.
    - Registering at Home Outfitters was awesome for us — they made it really easy and people from away could order online, have the item gift wrapped, and we'd get a call to pick it up. Super easy.

    P.S. To heck with Martha — I couldn't follow her list if my life depended on it!
