Wedding: One Month Marker

I can NOT even fathom the fact that it's been almost two full years since I got engaged.
I mean, where EXACTLY did that time go and how the heck can I get it back?!

Despite the fact that I only have one month left to get my act together, I haven't done much else.
Luckily for you all, that means you'll only have to suffer through one more wedding post after this one!

Bridal Party Attire
All of the ladies have picked up their gowns and began working on their alterations.
All of the men have been hunted down and measured for their tuxedos and shoes.
The ladies hair appointments have been set and their hair styles have been picked out.
The only one left is my little Mushy.  We're having her dress hand made.  I really need to get on that!

Rehearsal Date
The wedding rehearsal date has been set and scheduled in the church's appointment book!
The bridal party has been informed and they're ready to go.
It's scheduled on my man's birthday.  I forsee a cake directly following the rehearsal.  Yum!!

We met with the priest and went over all of our reading choices.
We picked our favorite two and noted them in the official matrimony book.
Now I just need to pass them along to our honorary readers so they can practice!

Wedding Dress Fitting
I had my first wedding dress fitting and I fell in love with my dress all over again!
Luckily, I didn't require any major alterations.  Just a gigantic hem and a few tucks here and there.
It was so weird standing for 3 hours while a lady cut out a dress around me to fit my body perfectly!

Wedding License
We gathered all of our original documents to prove our existence and headed to Town Hall.
We purchased our wedding license and we're ready to make it official! I still debate about changing my last name...

This wasn't a real productive month, but I'll be seriuosly cracking for the next 30 days!
Let's all cross our fingers that I get done with everything in time for the big day!

What are your wedding planning tips for the 1-month marker?

**For those of you who keeping popping up through Google (I see you!) and sent me e-mails, I'm going to compile one giant wedding checklist at the very end.  You're welcome!**
