Bride: Get Ring Cleaned and Ready! 
Confirm Honeymoon Arrangements (Fun/Not so Fun Fact: Our flight times have changed 3 times...and in one version, we were somehow moved to two different planes...all fixed now though!) 
Reserve Accommodations for wedding night

The closer the wedding gets, the more we get checked off, but the longer our to-do list grows too. I'm kind of losing count now, but I think 24 people have made flight arrangements...and a long list of people that don't need to fly are making arrangements to come too. It's going to be really exciting and real once the RSVP cards start rolling in next month! A few days ago, we hit the double digits in our wedding countdown, and today...91 days to go! I couldn't be more excited or ready to marry Brendan. It's funny that even after planning for 10.5 months, we still actually have things to do! I'm so excited for everything that is to come. 

Hope our checklist is helpful to you too!
