I’ve been a busy bee at work with all of the newly engaged brides! I get so inspired just by hearing what other brides are inspired by. It really gets me excited!
So, to the brides & grooms that are just beginning, may you have the best of time and find inspiration in the unexpected places.

I have a confession to make. Nine times out of ten, when I’m going through all of my favorite blogs, I don’t read the articles and just look at the pretty pictures. I know, I know, I’m sure the posts are wonderful and intriguing but I’m more of a visual girl and it’s the actual photos that grab my attention.
There are those times where someone’s post stops me dead in my tracks and this was one of them. It put everything into perspective when it comes to planning a wedding.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that has a little voice in the back of their head saying “Oh, but would this get me featured in this or that blog” or “I need to think of something so different that it would impress other brides.” I know, it’s terrible and I don’t want to admit it but sadly, it’s true. It’s hard not to get wrapped up in wanting everything to be perfect and “blog-worthy.”
Meg’s post on A Practical Wedding really hit home. It made me think of the real reason why we stress over all the details of a wedding.
I’ve gotten to a point where it just doesn’t matter. We’ve been engaged for over a year and I’m past the hype of needing everything to be perfect and it feels amazing!

Does anyone else feel the same? Are you abandoning the need to have your wedding be “blog-worthy?”
I was home in Pennsylvania a couple weeks ago and got to spend some much needed time with my mom mapping out the wedding planning.
I am less then a year away and needed to start putting together a solid list of what needs to get done by August 7th. We spent a good 2 hours talking about everything that we could possibility think of that needs to get done.
Now that I am back in Boston, every time one of us thinks of something else we simply call each other up and add it to the list. For those of you who are planning a wedding in another city, state or country than your mother, I find that this is a great way to involve each other during this special time.
Here is a shot of our Wedding List. It is currently about 5 pages long and keeps growing. It will feel great when I get to the time where I can start crossing things off. (Yes, I am that person who makes lists of things that I’ve already done just so I can cross it off!)
This list is also a big reminder that time is going to fly and things need to start happening. Ger and I got engaged back in December and have had a long engagement. Honestly, now that time is shortening, it’s hard for me to get started on all the projects!
For all of those brides out there, did your “list” have a dual meaning to you?
