how are the rest of you doing? besides being in shock that the days are flying by...are you crossing things off your list??
I think my shower (June 25th) is really what made it start to seem "real," too. And today, I got my invitations, so I'm sure that once I start addressing those, it will really sink in! FH and I will probably go pick out our cake next Friday, and are also going to try to meet with the priest that day to pick out ceremony readings. I still have to book a limo and set up specifics for everything (church music, DJ playlist, etc.), plus finish assembling favors. It seems like a lot of "busy work" the closer it gets to the wedding!
I hope that your dress comes in very soon...I'm sure it will, but it must be a pain for you to keep having to fly home! But it is good that you'll get to see family again before the wedding.
