I mentioned here that my best friend , Melissa, got engaged over Christmas (to my husband's best friend! yes, I know it's awesome), but I might not have mentioned that she plans to get married in May of THIS year. It's a tight time table but she's really flexible and relaxed on most things, and she has her very capable matron of honor (that's ME!) to help plan it all. I mean, I totally immersed myself in the planning for our wedding last year. I scoured wedding blogs of all kinds on a daily basis. I read wedding books and took copious notes. I researched, researched, and researched some more. I pinned anything and everything that matched my style. I even blogged about it over here every week.
We actually have a few friends who are engaged that frequently ask me for wedding advice. From where to get save the dates (we got ours here), to what site is best for creating a wedding website (I recommend this one, it's free!), and where to get bridesmaids dresses (this is the site I used, we got a discount for having more than 4 bridesmaids). Our wedding was even featured on Style Me Pretty thanks to our very talented photographers.
Can you tell I love planning weddings? I think I could talk about weddings all day. I started a pinterest board, and we have a joint board we're pinning to as well. Melissa has been totally on top of emailing vendors and will be booking her venue tomorrow. I lent her a few wedding books, including Handmade Weddings, which was my favorite by far. She even got her dress today, and it's gorgeous!
Anyone else love weddings? Or am I the only crazy wedding planning junkie? I may be posting planning updates from time to time...
