The Planner turns Bride!

So here's a little exciting news... I am now newly engaged! Very happy, excited and a little nervous. It's funny how the tables turn and now I need someone to whisper sweet nothings into my ear to calm me down. :) I have exactly 339 days to go until the big day and I am all geared up and ready to plan!

I thought it would be fun to keep you updated every step of the way and let you watch the planning of my wedding unfold step by step! This will also act as the sequel to the last blog where we practiced how to stay calm and remember the bigger picture which is that the wedding is great, but the days to come are most important so stressing out over the details isn't necessary.

So let's take off where we left off. "He proposed, I'm composed, Now what?"
Well now we insure the ring. Many couples forget this very important step. You MUST insure the rock you are sporting ladies!Take a look at this great article from the knot that explains all the details:

Now is the fun part where you sit and think about the feel of the wedding. What have you always envisioned? Maybe you'd like a clean cut wedding with no fuss in an open space or rather an extravagant affair with all the frills in a beautiful ballroom. Start thinking of the style and overall theme if you would, of the day. I have decided that for myself it will be a modern twist on the Renaissance era. Reminiscent of that time, i will use deep blues and whites to create a royal feel to the event. You want this day to be a reflection of you and your groom, so dedicate some time to this process and jot all of your ideas down. Once you brainstorm and find the feel, you'll just know and think... that's so me!

Remember, this step will act as the platform to all of the activities and details to come, so think hard and commit to something that you will both love!

Have fun and stay tuned to the next entry which will be dedicated to the budget! Don't let your budget discourage any of your ideas! Everything can be done on a smaller scale or a little less detailed. This is your day and you'll get what you want to!
