Wedding Bells

Yay! My first guest post for the week! Meet Kristen over at 31 Million Seconds. She's guest posting first this week because SHE'S GETTING MARRIED in just a few days!! So make sure you hop on over to her blog and wish her congratulations (and good luck)! Thanks for taking time out of your already busy schedule to post here, Kristen!


I was so excited when Jenn offered up her little spot on the Internet for guest posting.  I love getting the chance to meet new people.  But then I was one of those annoying folks who asked for special privileges and wanted an early day to stop by and say hello to everyone.  I promise I have a good reason though.  I'm getting married on Saturday!  So, yeah, things are a little insane at the moment.

Here's the thing, I've learned some important stuff about wedding planning along the way.

One, men are pretty much useless when it comes to wedding planning.  (I'm sorry sweetheart.  You know I love you with all my heart, but you have to admit it's true.)  At first, I tried to include him in all the decisions.  But after multiple times of hearing, "I don't care" or "Whatever you'd like, dear"  I gave up.  He lost all decision privileges.

Two, if you stick the words "bridal" or "wedding" in the description, expect the price to triple or more.  I kid you not.  A glittery headband at the mall costs $8.00.  The same exact glittery "bridal" headband at a "bridal" boutique will set you back $108.00.

For someone like me, who is trying to save as much money as possible and do this thing as cheaply as possible, that just drives me crazy.  It also means I've had to be pretty creative at times.

Three, you find out that your friends know you very, very well (maybe a little too well).  Especially when, out of nowhere, they send you a text that says, "JUST BREATHE".  Because they knew you were in the middle of a nervous breakdown.

Four, I know I'm marrying the right guy.  If anyone can put up with the insanity and the stress that comes along with a wedding, and still love you, there's no doubt in my mind that he's the one.

I would love for you to stop by and say hello, but just remember, I'm a little out of it right now!  So maybe next month?  I'm sure I'm going to need all the newlywed advice I can get.


  1. Thanks so much for having me today Jenn! I hope you have an absolutely wonderful vacation!

  2. I felt the same way with my husband. I wanted to him to give me his opinion a lot, but he kept saying, "I don't care."
    It's frustrating!

  3. Great post! So funny about the glittery headband...laughed out loud! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding...we are so happy for you!-The Dose Girls

  4. That's all so true about weddings. When I was planning mine, my fiance was in a different state doing an internship. It definitely made things interesting!



You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
