Happy New Year!

Home is where the Heart is.

Time has flown by and so have the holidays! Here we are in 2012 with less than 5 months to go until the wedding, eek!!! It seems like we just got engaged and now we’re preparing for various details of our big day.

I had such big plans for my holiday hiatus from work and school, instead I ended up staying up late and sleeping in even later which was priceless now that I look back.

The one productive thing I did do was check out two bridal shower venues. One that my aunt suggested (thanks Auntie :)) and the second was suggested by MOH Erika 😀 Now that preparations have started for the bridal shower & bachelorette, May seems right around the corner.

So if you haven’t gotten your passport yet – order that, if you haven’t called/emailed August – please do so, and if you haven’t commented on a post yet – do it! What are you waiting for?!

Back Soon

So after a brief hiatus, I’m back! I had finals for grad school and had to buckle down and focus. Now that those are successfully out of the way, I have lots of updates to share including: Say Yes to the Dress Part V, Bridesmaid Day, and the Ever Continuing Saga that is Hiring an Event Coordinator.

One thing that’s new is that this year I have a fiancé. Even though wedding planning can be extremely overwhelming at times, I’m thankful to be planning our wedding and to have Daniel’s help during the planning process.

To Hire or Not to Hire

I’ve already mentioned my feelings as of lately, with that being considered, I’m heavily weighing hiring an event coordinator. This person would help rein in all of our thoughts and ideas, communicate with the resort and our travel agent, run the rehearsal, be responsible for executing our planned vision, and day-of coordination – to name a few things. I know you’re thinking, “who hires a coordinator for a destination wedding?” And the answer is we do! Maybe.

Bridal Meltdown

Some days….this is JUST what I feel like! My responsibilities at work have picked up as I’ve started to develop in my career, school has gotten harder ( I secretly think they make the first few classes okay so you won’t quit), and with me being the detail-oriented person that I am – I just want to spend hours on end pouring over different magazines and websites gathering ideas for our wedding. But I can’t, which leads me to the lovely picture above…
