Wedding Planning...

Honestly I was never that girl... Dreaming of my wedding dress, where I would get married, every detail of every moment.  Nope, not me!  Then when my mother passed away - all of the planning seemed insignificant.  I wondered who would go dress shopping with me, who would I bounce ideas off of, who would ooh, ahh and cry at the mere thought of planning a wedding. 

Luckily, God and my Mommy have placed people in my life who are playing very significant roles and for that I am truly grateful.  I have found the planning to be enjoyable and my honey is very involved :)  We are merging ideas for what I feel will be a wonderful beginning to a long lasting marriage.

I have become members of many wedding planning sites such as theknot.com and frequent many bridals salons such as Kleinfields and David's Bridal for ideas.  I am truly looking forward to this journey.

Any tips, tricks, comments, suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

  2. I didn't have a big wedding but I've been in several so my only tip- don't let too many people measure in on major decisions... for instance, taking all of the bridesmaids when you go to pick out their dresses. Too many opinions will drive you nuts. and pick women that you know are going to do their jobs and are easy to work with!!!

    It will save you friendship and headaches!

  3. very touching post. planning a wedding can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be. i have learned to write everything down, surround yourself with trustworthy/honest people, and find inspiration pics from any/everywhere. having a visual makes it all easier. also, remember that at the end of the day its what you are your future hubby want. stay in prayer and i hope your big day turns out to be everything you wanted...and more!

  4. I'm so happy to hear that you have people in your life to step in for your mom.

    @ Sunny, yes! I didn't take my bridesmaids shopping but I let them see and show options via e-mail. In the end, I picked a dress I liked. Some of them hum hawed and requested other options. When the dresses came in they loved them and couldn't wait to wear them again.
