The best wedding checklist ever

Have you checked out the Offbeat Bride's wedding checklist?  It is truly amazing.  There are checklists on other websites that make me slightly about-to-have-a-wedding-breakdown crazy, but this one keeps me organized and makes me happy.  For instance, there is a "as soon as you know what you're doing" category that is extremely helpful.

Here are some of my favorite, slightly offbeat items on the list:
-tell your partner you love them at least once a day as things get increasingly crazy
-if you're doing an iPod recpetion, work on your playlist.  If not, work on a list of "must-play" (and "must-not play") songs for your DJ or band.  Back up your music and the rest of your hard drive while you're at it.
-Harass guests who haven't RSVP'd for the wedding and rehearsal dinner
-Make extra sure that everyone who's helping you with the wedding gets a special, pointed thank you.
-Procure sedatives for night before wedding.  Give them a trial run.
-Prepare a wedding day frekout kit (aspirin, makeup, safety pins, mints, Cliff bar, etc).
-Set aside special time during the day to step aside and breath for a few seconds. (on the wedding day)
-Take a moment to thankyou family and tell them you love them

The list is full of other, really helpful and insightful tasks as well.  Check it out!

Do you have any other checklists/organizers that you recommend?
