October Wedding List Update

I'm proud that I can mark off my bridal portraits and my invitations this month.  We selected all groomsmen attire and the men have a deadline to get their money to R so the suits can be ordered.  Also two of my three bridesmaids have ordered their dresses.  One went into false labor and is currently on bed rest...she's having twins!  I think it's very up in the air if she is bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy.  I was assured that it will take 6 weeks max. for the dress to ship so even if we have to order her dress in December there will be plenty of time before the wedding.  This is my first experience with a pregnant best friend and it's really scary that she could have had the twins this early.  It also freaks me out that she is so high risk that bed rest might be the best option.  Any prayers for Courtney and her little beans are welcome.
