Wedding Wednesday

9/18/2013


Pinterest has been a blessing and a curse when it comes to wedding planning. It has helped me hone in on the main elements I want at our wedding (like long bridesmaids gowns, white flowers, votives, and a groom wearing classic black), but it also makes me feel inadequate as a bride. I see homemade favors and wonder if I should be glueing burlap to a mason jar or making a chalk sign with our instagram hashtag (it's #kirbyandianwedding) right now instead of browsing my favorite blogs while catching up on episodes of The Newsroom. But I have a job and a life and I'm not too big into DIY-ing anyway. So I'm officially taking a break from Pinterest because, readers, I'm getting married a week from Saturday. I'd just like to enjoy the final days of being engaged. And try to get some sleep.

Oh my gosh I TOTALLY understand how you feel about Pinterest! It's overwhelming to see all the creativity while wedding planning - how do people have all this time?! I'm taking a break too :)
Isn’t That Charming.

Eeeee! Your wedding is going to be here before you know it!!!! There wasn't Pinterest when I got married, but I think that's ok bc I would have had toooooo many options/ inspirations. Be sure and get some sleep...maybe take some Melatonin..or wine ;)
