Wednesday, August 31

We came we saw we conquered....

So we were married on the 13th of August...I'm patiently wait for the pictures from the photographer...

meanwhile my sister the photographer took great pictures that can be found on her website....

One thing I did want to do was to let those who help make the day lovely be recognized...like the cake pop baker and the cupcake maker... :)

the venue and photographer...

I want to show my final result of my centerpieces and all the sweat, tears, and blood (yes..I had a hot glue accident ... was painful but I know Martha Stewart wouldn't allow me to cry thug tears...)

Just wanted to share in the work of the day ...our day and mixture of cultures.

I worked around the clock *especially that last week, yikes!!!*

I yelled and screamed and had a meltdown the day before...oh I was a B to the Z to the illa with a little bit of super stank in it... and I didn't want to be.

The next day I was calm (so I guess I needed to freak out the day before...it's okay to freak out before...it means you care)... the day of I had no meltdowns regardless of the things what went wrong and somethings went wrong, still we had a good time. :)

My husband (weird to say and kind of still surreal) suggested that I could do wedding coordinator as a job after since I enjoy all the planning so much and now I miss it and feel bored and empty without something to keep me busy...

Honestly....I did enjoy coming up with ideals...but unlike every other bride who plans her wedding and becomes "the queen of all wedding planning"...

I've decided...it's not for me. It has always been a dream of mines to be a wedding coordinator and to work with brides and their weddings but living it made me realize...I just couldn't join such a group of over paid, over priced people for under quality work perform and done(aka the wedding industry)... I couldn't live with suggesting over priced vendors to my brides or watch as one tells me she is willing to spend over $6,000 on centerpieces... huh??? I would always try to talk the couples into eloping and saving money and leaving me out of making money...(I am too frugal)

One thing I did love was making my shoes...and centerpieces and coming up with unique ideals.

So that is what I would like to offer other brides.

Tips on things you don't realize and tips on things people tell you often but still don't mean a thing until it hits you and you find yourself unprepared because they told you what to avoid but didn't give you advice on exactly how to avoid it.

I also want to make shoes for girls..and centerpieces and other things to make a wedding day "your special day"...

only difference is...my service is a gift and it won't be for all...just who I randomly decide to bless because all brides need some light at the end of the tunnel and I can't give them all light but I can help one or two when given the chance.


With that being said...


Things I learned after the wedding about the wedding and being married that no one told me....

Tip #1. Practice writing your new name
(I know you'll focus on invites and making sure you have a name changing kit but what good is changing it if you can't write it or don't feel comfortable writing it. Seems silly but really take time out to write it...that way when the husband gives you the check book and you start shoe shopping ...people won't think you stole some random guy's money.) :D

Peace and Love
The Mrs.
