Wedding Update: 5 Months To Go!

The Big Day is only 5 months away and it seems that my To-Do List is getting longer instead of shorter.  The more I think about it the more it seems to grow. The good thing is that we have most of the big things completed and booked, so it really just comes down to the details now.

Here's the update on what we have done, what we are in the process of planning, and what we still need to do.  Hopefully, next month, we will be able to move a few more items to the "Done" category.  But, I am sure that I will have more things to add to the "Need To Do" category as well.
