The final 100 days

We are down to the final 100 day countdown til I am Mrs. Feetham!!

Wedding planning has been SO. MUCH. FUN! Each part of it has made me say, "I should've gone into the wedding planning business" or  "I wish I worked at a bridal store so I could help other girls find their dress!" or "I wish I were a graphic designer." Of course in reality, I wouldn't want to do any of those things for a living... but it certainly is fun doing them on the side!

I know I haven't updated on my wedding plans much, mostly because I still want the element of surprise on our wedding day.  I don't want to spill too many details or post too many pictures, but I WILL offer my checklist (snagged from Megan at Fried Green Pickles)...and give an idea of just how much thought we've put into our big day and how many things we've already checked off the to-do list:
