All Around Wedding Tips and Ideas

Pin It
Being a bride for the very first time can seem like a million emotions all rolled into one. First there's the excitement that you're getting married, the excitement of planning and looking at all the frilly, pretty stuff. Then there's joy as you talk to your family and friends about your plans for the special day. There's the nervousness, wondering how it will all turn out; the worrying that you're forgetting something. I could go on an on about the emotions, but I'm sure you get the just of it.

That's why I'm here to help! I'm planning my own backyard wedding and I want to share that journey with you and the rest of the world. Even if I can help one bride to be, I've served my purpose; although I'm hoping to help a lot more than one!

We are doing everything ourselves.. everything! So I should have lots of little tricks and ideas up my sleeve by the time this is all done. This will be a master post, with links to all of the different tips, tricks, ideas, product, whatever! Check out one article or check them all, totally up to you!

I'm also hosting an "About Time to Say I Do" wedding event featuring reviews of great product finds for our wedding. You can check all of that out too if you'd like! So, without further ado, here are some articles that I hope will help you! There will be more to come during and after the journey, so be sure to bookmark this page for future reference.
