Finalize wedding-day timeline
Find a million vases for centerpieces, okay, more like ten
Get family wedding potraits and have them framed in silver frames
Figure out card box

Figure out folded napkins
Buy stamps
Decide on Unity Candle
Decide if I want to do a garter toss
Get ring sized & cleaned!
Prepare final payments!
Confirm check-in/check-out with Abbey Resort

...among MANY other random thoughts trailing through my head!
