The First

As a first time bride and blogger, my hope is that you will forgive my antics as I struggle my way through this process.

I was introduced to The Addiction of Bridal Blogs (TABB, I'm starting a group soon) through a post-bride-current-wife acquaintance I know from my YMCA. She turned me on to her favorites and I was hooked. I debated quite a bit whether or not to do this, but I have found a few helpful tips along the way that others might benefit from.

I will try to be as anonymous as possible, but will surely let things slip through the cracks as I become a Braver Blogger.

A few thoughts about being a 30+ Bride in a 20-Something World:
  • Botox - get some now.
  • Budget - Pappa ain't paying.
  • Business - Weddings are huge monetary rackets that had me majorly bummed out for a while.
I'll have to admit, for the first three months of my engagement, I was a wreck. The planning, the budget, the stress. I didn't think I could do it and not kill myself or my fiance (hereforthtobeknown as The Candyman). However, I've got what my friend Abby calls "The Big Five" (photographer, ceremony, reception, dress, music) down, I can relax and have a little fun. My hope is that whomever reads this muddles their way through the muss of planning and gets to the fun sooner rather than later!
