Wedding Planning: Where to start?!

99 Days to go until the big day. Woo hoo!  There is so much to do and I feel like I am all over the place.  One step (and breath) at a time. What do we know?  We've chosen to hold our ceremony and wedding  in my parent's backyard.  It will be early November and the weather should still be fairly warm but still cool enough.  I do not want to be sweaty.  Ick!! Day light savings will be the week prior so it'll be getting darker earlier. Ideally we'd like to have the ceremony durning sunset (you know, all romanticky and such). Then we can dangle strands of lights from all of the tree and line the table with candles.  The Señor and I love to eat al fresco so that was really important for us to incorporate into our big day.
As for who will officiate our nuptials, we've chosen one of our good friends.  Why her?  She can command an audience, she's super witty and always knows just what to say. Well, besides being the totally awesome and talented woman that she is, she sent my soon-to-be Señor into the shop to meet me. She's sneaky that one, and she told him that we would hit it off.  And that's just what happened.  He walked in and the rest is history.
Next week's to do list: invitations. Watercolors are really speaking to me right now.  AND, it could be a really fun DIY.  Is it crazy to want to make my own wedding invitations?  Since we aren't having a ton of people I figure that it could be totally manageable.  Yay? Nay?  Anyone out there make their own? I'm really digging this combination of colors.  It's colorful but still feels very "Fall". What do you think?
