The requisite wedding blog!

Well, since everybody's doing it, it must be a good idea right? RIGHT?!?

I'm sure most will roll their eyes at the thought of yet another rambling blog describing all the minute details of some random couple's "unique" wedding. Believe me, I was one of those "eye rollers" not too long ago!

But after the exhilarating elation of our engagement began to ebb (oh the alliteration; my english teacher would be so proud) and the realization of the daunting task that lay ahead began to overwhelm, I soon discovered just how useful the blogs of my fellow brides-to-be really were!

If you're anything like me, the first thing you do when faced with such a challenge is research, research, research (aka: surfing the web). And so it was during my first few days of "research" that I discovered the wonderful world of wedding blogs. Useful, not just in their ability to update family and friends of the blogger, but to provide information to other couples in the process of planning a wedding. Whether you share the same geographical location, the same budget constraints, the same family stories, or the same love for DIY projects, you really can learn a lot from the millions of other brides that have been in your exact same position not too long ago!

Which leads me here, making my first wedding blog post; hoping, not only to keep my family and friends abreast of our wedding plans, but to help other brides by sharing my own experiences during this exciting and often overwhelming time!
