Wedding Wednesday: Five Months to Go!

 Ok, I am not going to lie, not only have I been slacking on my blog, but I have been slacking on my wedding tasks.  Eeek.  We finally got the Save The Dates out which took me WAY longer then I thought, as I decided to address all the envelopes myself in a funky way.  After I finished that I needed to take a break from wedding stuff for a bit.  But now I am feeling a bit stressed that I slacked.
