Procrastinate? Check.

I love this sweet little embroidered cake I found at Style Me Pretty.  But I really can't decide if I want one stacked wedding cake or three small layered cakes of different flavors.  This is why I procrastinate.  It's hard for me to make a choice!

I'm a procrastinator, and I'm really good at it.  Generally speaking, I can knock out huge projects in small amounts of time with a fair amount of ease.  However, I'm quickly learning that some things can't be ignored or put off when it comes to wedding planning.  It's time to pull the trigger and make the tough decisions.  It's time to get things done.  Why, just look at my To Do List!

  • Sew more napkins (yes, still).
  • Buy more dessert plates from the Pasadena Flea Market.
  • Create some sort of an altar for the ceremony venue.
  • Find a rental vendor. 
  • Book a rental vendor.
  • Fix my iPod.
  • Find a caterer.
  • Book a caterer.
  • Find a cake vendor.
  • Book a cake vendor.
  • Go suit shopping with Adam.
  • Buy rings.
  • Make the playlists for the ceremony and the reception.
  • Tailor my dress.
  • Get shoes, veil, jewelry, etc.
  • Hair.
  • Make up.
  • Sew flag garlands.
  • Make heart garlands.
  • Make "Just Married" garland.
  • Paint wooden signs for the reception (Thank You, Bride, Groom, etc...).
  • Find a babysitter for the reception (to watch the little ones while the big ones par-tay).
  • Buy flowers from the Downtown Flower Mart
  • Make bouquets and boutonnieres.
  • Buy booze.
  • Bake stuff.
  • Write vows.
  • Ask for/Collect photos of married guests.
  • Paint the guest book (not a book in actuality, a canvas instead).
  • Order groom's pie (Raspberry Rhubarb, to be exact) from Linn's.
  • String lights at the reception site.
I'm sure there are more things to add to the list, but I'm tired, and lazy, and refuse to look at the list I made three months ago that's stuck to the fridge. Because it's all the way in the kitchen.  I'll do it tomorrow.
