Here’s the update, in progress:

Final numbers to caterer
Print escort cards, put stickers on them
Finish ceremony – I think we’re pretty close, but not quite done
Packing list is pretty comprehensive but I’m going to go over it a few more times
We had one cancellation and one addition earlier this week, plus found out from some people we knew wouldn’t be able to RSVP until the last minute that they are not able to attend. There is one person up in the air who will have to squish in to a table where he knows people if he comes. I sent him an email but haven’t heard back yet. I’ve been holding off on printing the escort cards until we’re pretty well sure that the attendee list is finalized.
There are a few little crafty things we’re still working on, like holders for the table name cards, and some crafty things that will be done just before the wedding (like flowers). I made a hair appointment today with the lady who cut my hair when I was growing up, whose daughter went to preschool with me, and will go in for a trial hair run in the week before the wedding. It looks like we’ll have an easy time finding a cheap hotel room in Vegas for the middle of the week coming back from California. And I found a place to have some girly pampering done that takes the gift certificate my sister gave me for giftmas (spafinder). Now, is the leg wax price for two legs or one? Can anybody tell me?
Also, what should I do for my day-off birthday on Friday?
