Wedding Planning Diary Introduction!!!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Hey Guys!!

So I promised everyone that I would journal my wedding planning process. Anyone that has planned a wedding or knows someone that has planned a wedding, can tell you it has it's really good times and it has not so good times. I've only been engaged for about 5 months now and I can testify to that, lol! Planning something that means soooo much to you with so many different opinions, suggestions, and thoughts can very well be one of the hardest things a person will ever plan. I have MAD respect for those who do it all without a wedding planner, but as for me...I am lucky enough to have BCG Events (yes we plan & coordinate TOO!!) with me EVERY step of the way!

My main purpose of doing this is not to brag or "show-off" but mainly for my entries to serve as a support system for myself and other planning brides out here. I want other African brides planning African weddings using African vendors to reach out to me and let me know that I am not alone with the frustrations that come along with planning. I also want planning and future brides to use me and this blog as a resource for inspiration, advice, or just a place to vent! I'm here to listen and I hope you guys will be there for me as well!

So on that note, I will just tell you a little bit about my personal wedding style.

If you remember a post I did some time ago on How to Select Your Wedding Style. If you refer back to that post I thought I was slick by posting some of MY inspiration photos in a blog post, loll! But those first four photos actually describe my wedding style almost perfectly. I plan on adding a little more of a wispy, light, airy feel to it by using really soft colors that will set an ETHEREAL ambiance...and that is my theme! Ethereal, heavenly, soft, billowy....I basically want my guests to feel like they are being enveloped in a cloud of lavishness! If you don't get it, don't worry my duty over the next couple of months is to tell you how I plan on executing that and take you with me through the highs and lows of wedding planning. Here are more pics that kind of inspire me and made me fall in love with my may have seen me post some of these pics before because I'm obsessed but whatever, here they are again, haha! Sorry about the lack of credits...I've totally lost track due to plenty of emailing, cut and pasting...but I found MOST of them on Google.

Sidenote: The color palette that we'll be working with are a range of peaches, blush pinks, soft oranges, ivory, and gold accents :-)

Stay Beautiful My Loves,
Pin It Now!
