Wedding Plans - Wedding Wednesday Update

Our wedding seems very far away (December 28th) and yet the year is flying by. I am in the middle of the planning stages, sort of in a lull or maybe in the calm before the storm. All of the big things are booked, or planned, its a million small details and maybe some bigger ones left. I will share my journey and to do list, if only in hopes to inspire myself.

Its funny, I LOVE planning, planning and organizing are my favourite things to do, however when it comes to our wedding plans I am just so excited for the day that all the small details seem overwhelming/unimportant. I think my subconsious is however concerned worried about each and every detail and that would be the cause of what I like to call "weddingmares". Can anyone relate to these? They are always some version of our big day but nothing is done, we forgot to ask people to do speeches, had no M/C....I wake up in a panic haha This is natural right?!

Our theme is winter I hope we get a very white Christmas this year or at least a very white December 28th!
