Welcome to my first ever blogging shindig! Never did I think I would become a daily blog reader...let alone a reader of many wedding blogs...let alone then start my own wedding blog! So this is a surprising and exciting new thing for me.
Let me just start out with a simple introduction. Hi, my name is Jen. I'm engaged and being eaten alive by the Wedding Industrial Complex (WIC). After months of reading wonderful, down to earth, insightful and beautiful wedding blogs, I thought my own engagement and wedding planning process would be smooooth sailing. I thought I was ahead of the game, had my head screwed on straight, and could handle anything the WIC threw at me. Wrong.
I generally have my head screwed on straight, but apparently it wasn't screwed on tightly enough because I got rocked in the first month or two of being engaged. I listened to too many opinions, looked at too many pretty pictures that I then wanted to have for my own, and really didn't have any knowledge of just how much a wedding would cost.
Enter this blog.
I'm trying to take note, examine, enjoy and learn from this crazy mash up of events and emotions that is wedding planning so I can come out the other side of this a better, married person (and that me and my mister come out a better, married couple!). So this blog begins as a way to help myself, but as I organize my thoughts and reflect, maybe I can share something useful with cyber wedding land along the way.
Wish me luck! :)
