This week has been a big week for this little business for numerous reasons. Soon all will be revealed, but in short: new clients (woot), 2 new consultants officially on board (double woot), and considering a real office space (other than my kitchen table), and lots more! One of the best things about my job is working with really cool couples and to add to my excitement today, I received a note from one our brides. Jessica was a bridesmaid in a wedding we worked on last year, so when it came her turn to walk down the aisle, she chose us to coordinate her special day! We can’t wait to travel to Chicago in the fall to celebrate with her!
Well Miss Eliza Blu, Here is my wedding story!
The most fun part of wedding planning for me (so far) has been picking the dress, theme, colors, favors, etc. Of course the most fun will be actually getting married! It was wonderful to make things what I wanted them to be, and how I wanted to do it. I had a vision in my head and tried to create it. I wasn’t ready for people to get mad at me, expect me to use their opinions, or have my wedding be how they thought it should be. Officer Jack and I have learned compromise through out this whole process, and have enjoyed it. We have had our bumps in the road with the planning of our wedding, but other than that, everything was pretty smooth. I can’t believe I am getting married in 12 days. What’s my biggest triumph you ask? Besides paying for most of the wedding ourselves! And besides marrying the man of my dreams! Hehe. Well that would be hand-making lots of stuff for the wedding! I handmade all my wedding favors, and I am helping make the dessert. Now, what will I do after it is all over? 🙂
Bride Lissa Bee
Thanks for sharing! I can’t believe you’ll be a Married Lady soon. This is a very special first Bridespot as Lissa Bee has been a friend for over 10 years. She is also very modest, she printed her invites at home (you can see them featured in the DIY Invites post), homemade pumpkin butter for her favors and embellished 100s of little jars, AND she decorated her very own pair of white shoes seen in here. She is a DIY Bride Machine.
In addition, she made beautiful gifts for her bridesmaids, which I will post photos of after her wedding, as not to ruin the surprise. I can’t wait to be there to see you and Officer Jack tie the knot!
I’m starting two new feature sections this month. The first will be called Venue of the Month. This series will highlight a fantastic venue in the Philadelphia area (NJ, DE, and MD borders too). So if you are getting married in the tri-state area and want to nominate your venue please email me at email@example.com with VENUE in the subject line. Please include the name, location of your venue, and the name of the event contact person, and I will do the rest. This feature will run each month on the 10th.
Our first Venue of the Month will appear very soon! It comes to us from Bride-to-be Shortcake, who you may have seen around the page before (Philly Knottie Event). She is (probably, awaiting fiance approval) getting married in June 2010 at The Radnor Hunt Club in Malvern, PA.
The second feature section is called Bridespot. This will be a guest post by a current Bride-to-be or newly wed. Your post can be about anything your heart desires related to your Bridal experience! For example, you can share with the Something Blu community any of the following… What are you struggling with planning? What has been the most fun about wedding planning? What have you learned about your partner since you got engaged? What did you not expect to encounter while planning your wedding? What has been your biggest triumph?
Please submit Bridespot guest posts to firstname.lastname@example.org with BRIDESPOT in the subject line. Accepted posts will be notified and credit will be given, not to worry.
I can’t wait to hear from all of you!!
<3, Eliza Blu
