Planning the Big Day: Band or DJ? So we are just under 8 months from the wedding, things are moving along and one of the items that I want to make sure is perfect is the music at my reception. Partly because I am a big ‘wedding dancer’ (ie super huge ham that likes to be the center of attention) and partly because my dad keeps harping on the fact that “If you don’t have good music it won’t be a … { read more }

Planning the Big Day: Bridesmaid Dresses I promised myself I’d never be that bride that made her girls walk down the aisle in something unsightly….think layers of taffeta, oodles of crinoline and bows where bows are just NOT meant to be. So when choosing the dresses for my bridesmaids I had a few goals in mind: You WILL be able to wear it again, you WON’T have to re-mortgage your house to pay … { read more }

The First Gift! Just needed to veer off the ‘planning’ track a bit this week to share the story of excitement that was the receipt of the first gift off of our registry : ) It’s strange, because we obviously knew we’d be getting gifts, but it’s surprising just how thrilling that initial delivery can be… It was a cold and snowy day and I was not in such a great mood after trekking through the … { read more }

Planning the Big Day: Choosing the Dress So, despite what any woman may try to say, the wedding dress is truly THE HIGHLIGHT of wedding planning.

It sounds like something out of a dream, but yet this is what the almighty Bridal Registry really is. I have always looked forward … { read more }
