Hello, and welcome to my wedding-planning blog! If you're here, you probably know my real name and my birthstone and all sorts of other disturbing personal information, like that dream I had about the exploding turkeys.
But just to be on the safe side, I won't be using any real names. For the purposes of this blog you may call me the Bride in Exile. Sounds dramatic, eh? Well, I'm a Colorado native currently living on the East Coast. This has some advantages -- namely, my great grad school program and the grocery store Wegmans -- but I miss the Rocky Mountains, the bright blue skies, the dry air (I loathe humidity) and the general feeling of space and freedom that I just don't find in the population-dense East Coast. Also, it turns out that planning a wedding from out of state is a wee bit tricky.
I am starting this blog for two major reasons.
1. To get opinions from my friends on wedding stuff, since most of them live very far away.
2. To help me organize my thoughts on various wedding issues so I don't become one of those brides-to-be who is always talking about her wedding to anyone who will listen, up to and including houseplants. My houseplants are already suicidal, no need to make it worse.
More to follow soon, but for now, welcome!
