You should register for your cake knife and server! I just took one item off your to do list :)

Kristyn said...

You have a ton done, but yes...there is so much left to do! I have the same on my list too. I am addressing our Save the Dates as we speak, but we are on the same page pretty much. It's crazy how much stuff has to be done for 1 day, isn't it. So crazy!

Katie said...

You have so much done! YOU'RE GOING TO COSTA RICA!!!! I love that place so much! What part are you going to?

Janelle {Undomestic Bliss} said...

You're off to a great start! Let me know if you need any tips for InDesign and Illustrator.

I don't know if you're going to need any signs or programs but you might want to check out Etsy for "printable" files. I found a designer on there that I worked with for all of our printed stuff (except invitations) and then just printed them all myself!

Congrats on getting so much done already! Feels so good to scratch an item off, doesn't it? :)
