My wedding day bag used to be filled with all sorts of goodies- something to anticipate any kind of bridal emergency. Ripped dress? I had a sewing kit. (And I tell you, threading a needle 5 minutes before a ceremony is not an easy task!) Stubborn Sash- I had tiny safety pins. (Monique Lhuillier- I still love you..) I had straight pins, double stick tape, scotch tape, duct tape...I had to carry something for everything.. until I found zots. These sticky little suckers have worked miracles! They stick to fabric and paper brilliantly and refuse to let go. Not only are they great for last second quick fixes, but they are perfect for tons of wedding projects-invitations, place cards, favor tags, photo albums, etc. (I recommend the tiny ones pictured above..) and oh-so easy to use. Find them at Paper-Source, (my home away from home..) and most other paper and craft stores. :)
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
