Wedding Planning – Take 2!

So, I’ve already mentioned the fact that I have 9 months left untill the big day right. Well, here’s what I’ve got done.

Main Wedding Plans

Reception Hall
Ceremony Site
Hand Fastening Scarf (was my grandmother’s scarf)
Rings (traditional celtic wedding bands)

What I haven’t done yet.

Bridesmaids dresses and shoes and Matron of Honor’s dress and shoes
Tux rentals
Men’s shoes
Flower girl’s attire
Ring bearer’s attire
Broom for the broom stick ritual (A Pagan marriage ritual)
Photographer isn’t set in stone yet
Wedding Cake
Liquor License
Marriage License
Rehersal Dinner

Obviously these last three are suppose to be done a few days before the ceremony.
