I haven’t posted in a while. But I’m sure you’re used to that by now.
I wasn’t quite sure how to tell you guys this exciting news:
Yep, we’re engaged! Very happy
You may have already heard through twitter. Or if you’re a friend in real life. I guess it’s been about a month since we got engaged. Sorry it took me so long to tell you guys!
Yes, I’ve started planning. And trying to keep costs down! I know how quickly wedding expenses can build up, so I’ll try to be careful! We’ve already got a few things figured out (ceremony location, reception location, wedding date), but there’s plenty of things we still need to deal with (guest list? flowers? music? honeymoon?)
I know there will be some up and downs. And lots of opinions. But come our wedding day, it’s going to be AWESOME.
The one book keeping me sane right now is A Practical Wedding, written by Meg Keene, the woman behind apractialwedding.com. I first heard about the book/website from Revanche (A Gai Shan Life) awhile back. And so right after I got engaged, I bought myself a copy of the book. And apparently the book is so good that my good friend Sarah (of Sarah and Michael fame) also ordered me a copy! (I thanked her for it and returned the extra copy) She said it really helped keep things in perspective for her.
So, I’ll probably be blogging a bit about my wedding planning. And my attempts to keep costs under control without making things look cheap or tacky!
What are your favorite wedding planning books/blogs/websites? What advice did you hear a lot? And what advice did you actually take?
