73 Days and Counting! Yikes!!

I just went on one of my vendor's websites, and they thoughtfully have a countdown of the days until our event, 73 to be exact. I may be a little wound up about this, but who wouldn't be? That's less than 2 1/2 months! My mind is racing thinking about what we still have to get done for our big day, like:
  • Order our toasting flutes, cake-cutting set, guestbook & pen. I love the Tara Collection from Things Remembered. I've been waiting for them to go on sale, but it's becoming apparent that they never will.
  • Mail our invitations. Pics are soon-to-come. We DIY'd, but they look great, and I'm so proud of them. They'll be going out by Thursday, to allow our international guests ample time to finalize their plans.
  • Order FI's tux.
  • Buy gifts for our parents. We have the gifts for our attendants.
  • Confirm the officiant. This is sort of a big one. For the longest time, FI wanted to use his lifelong pastor, but that man was so unprofessional, we mutually decided against it. We've asked my pastor to officiate, and we should have his response by Friday. My church is in MD, and he's just double checking to make sure he can officiate a VA wedding.
  • Order fresh rose petals. Our aisle is outdoors and super long, so we're opting for rose petals instead of a runner, but they have still got to be ordered.
  • Attend the menu tasting and final dress fitting. These have been scheduled for next month.
  • Get the marriage license. This can't be done until at least 60 days before the wedding in Virginia.
  • Get a flower girl basket and order her accessories.
  • Programs!
  • Schedule a wedding hair consultation.
  • Order wedding day foundation garments.

I'm trying not to get freaked out about all this, and typing it up helps to calm me. I imagine that I'm not the only bride that gets a little frazzled by The Countdown. Aside from the things listed, everything else is pretty much done. I cannot believe my wedding day is 2 1/2 months away. This is so major!

Barenecessities.com has lots of wedding appropriate foundation garments, and their prices aren't bad. I'll probably end up ordering from them.

Thanks! I'm trying.
