purpose of this blog? well, the main purpose is that i'm determined, soo determined, to scour hi-and-lo for any and all ideas that will help me create a fantabulously amazing and unique wedding...for $10,000 or less. $5,000 from gtb (groom to be) and $5,000 from moi. i want this bad boy $10,000 budget to encompass everything...the venue the food the dress the booze (good luck to us!) the rings (but not the engagement ring, uh-uh, that thing had better be huge...more on this later...) to the everything else. e-ver-y-thing. so i figured i'd bring all the ideas together and organize them in one blog. a blog i can actually access at work (question: could i get the 'bring a box' speech if they find me doing this?). i.e. sorry to xangar, my previous home.
and now a sheepish confession. i am soo not engaged and soo not even close to getting married. dahhhh. or more like...bahhhh...
but i've become an avid fan of http://www.weddingbee.com over the past year, during which i have also once, twice, been a bridesmaid. and last year alone, i went to five weddings. so. it's time. and call me overeager but i love to plan, list and research. i also love taking the time to really look in crevices where normal people don't bother to look. and i truly believe in the concept of sharing is caring. and i really really realllllllllllllly want to *not* cross that $10,000 finish line. so i'm starting early. still with me?
ok, so on to the other (less important) purpose of this blog. i'm also sheepishly admitting that i've been meaning to create a somewhat anonymous forum, um, for myself. heeeeee. a forum-of-1 to gripe about unnecessary dramas ranging from the padres worrying about my stock dropping with age...drama with the girls...drama with the boyfriend (oh yes, i do have one!)...and just dramas in general. because, let's be honest here, as laidback as you wanna think you are, you really aren't. or...i'm not. geez, another admission! ah, what a pleasure it is to just blurt out my blurt. let's be friends, shall we?
