Newlie has become a special little blog where I can archive my weekly attempts to balance an assortment of goodies in life: cooking, baking, exercising, catching up with family and friends, learning how to make a house into our home, etc. But there’s something that I haven’t written about yet. It’s kind of the reason and inspiration for my blog….
…I’M IN LOVE!
Like…shout it from the mountain tops while holding a radio over my head – kind of in love. And what’s even better than that? He loves meeeeee! And we’re getting maaaaaarried! Am I making you sick to your stomach? Should I stop talking? Too bad. We get to spend the rest of our lives together, and I can’t even begin to express the joy that brings us. Sean is truly the most amazing, kind hearted, hilarious, handsome man I have ever met. And now…comes a very exciting next step:
Goodness GRACIOUS there’s a lot that goes into this stuff. Seriously! First of all, there’s the wedding date to choose. Then there’s the wedding websites to pick from. Then you begin the search for the perfect: venue, caterer, photographer, cake bakery, ceremony music, reception music, wedding dress, save the date cards, invitations, color scheme, ceremony program, place settings, place cards, dinner choices, rehearsal dinner restaurant, accommodations, gift registry, thank you cards, flowers, wedding favors, minister, budget, hair and make up artists…and believe me…the list goes on and on. But you know what? I’m seriously loving every minute of planning. It has been such a joy to plan the day that we’ll become husband and wife. I know I’m not the only lady out there planning a wedding right now, or maybe for some of you ladies, SOON to plan a wedding? Ehh!? So I’d love to share the websites and companies I’ve worked with so far who have made the process easy, breezy, and beautiful. Enjoy:
I definitely sprinted to the computer to make a Pinterest board named “I’m getting MARRIED!!!!” within the week that Sean proposed. It’s so much fun. Probably too much fun, to the point of slight addiction, but my fellow Pinterest lovers will understand. If you want to check out some of my “Pin-spirations” just click the icon above.
Wedding Wire is an absolute dream in terms of helping me to keep track of everything like: our budget, the wedding guest list, seating arrangements (our wedding is not ’til December, so I haven’t used that part – but it looks like fun!), monthly check lists, vendor searches, making your own wedding website for your guests, and tons more. It’s a huge help, and I personally like it much more than theKnot.com (too many ads on that site).
