Purchase Nathan’s wedding gift; L’Aura gives me a great idea regarding that!
Order: From Vistaprint, the “Mr. & Mrs.” labels for our post-wedding thank-you notes and announcements. Just wait for a sale on Vistaprint, and everything’s cheaper! I got 280 labels for a little over $8.

Order: From Shutterfly, prints of Nathan’s favorite photo of us, taken in 2005 by Maureen McFarlane, for insertion in the invitations.

Order Wedding Weekend “casual” wear from Target. Awesome colors and things I think I might look good in; I usually hate ordering online, but if I try them on and they don’t work for me, I can return them to my local Target. Win!
Not one, but two, phone meetings with Anne-Marie, the Wedding Coordinator. Firm up tablecloths, favor box arrangements, times for rehearsal & dinner, time for feeding reception guests; set appointment for March 15; discuss reception table lay-outs, HC’s gift chest policy, confirm chosen menu can be served Family Style; discuss sluicing and availability of cave tour and zip-line activities; need to appoint gift person; tell Anne-Marie not to worry about bride/groom champagne glasses or cake set, because we’re not bothering. She tells me the lanterns we ordered for the wedding rehearsal centerpieces have arrived.

Talk with my friend Meghan, from Goddard days, about the idea that I really don’t want photos of my deceased parents at the wedding—I have just always thought that kind of thing was maudlin. We come up with a better idea!
Slate appointment for Cake Tasting.
Purchase Static Guard for Wedding Day (I was in Ptown Stop & Shop, it caught my eye, it was on sale, and I thought, “hey, might as well take care of it now or I’ll forget!)
I know I did a few other things, but I can’t think of them now—they were probably small.
