- 16.19.11Take A Break
As I sit here on the screened in porch enjoying the perfect summer weather, warm with a gentle breeze, after a sailboat ride across the lake and back, I realized something I wanted to share with anyone else that may be planning a wedding.
No matter how much needs to get done, no matter how long the to-do list, no matter how far behind you think you are, take a break. You’ll be glad you did.

We made our own invitations and found that the DIY kits were the best way to limit stress and save money on wedding invitations.
- 55.1.11The proposal
There seems to be a lot of demand for a proposal post, so Chris and I have finally decided to put it up. The only problem is that we both tell it a little differently, as I’m sure you can imagine if you know us. So, we thought it would be fun for both of [...]
- 04.28.11Awesome, Free Wedding Planning Spreadsheets by Google
It seems like people have thought of everything these days. Last week, we wrote a post about using Google Docs and Google Calendars to plan our wedding. We have loved the opportunity to share ideas, deadlines, appointments, etc. using those tools and highly encourage everyone to use them.

- 04.20.11Cheap bachelorette party ideas
As it turned out, there wasn’t any one weekend in the four months leading up to my wedding that all of my best friends could get together for a bachelorette party, so we planned two! The first weekend was built around a fun night out in Atlanta, and the second will be a relaxing weekend at the beach. We made sure both trips would be very affordable so everyone could attend one or both without having to worry about money. We also set up both trips so no one would have to take any time off work, which was crucial since all of us recent grads have limited vacation time!
- 04.17.11Wedding Bliss Lane
Last week, we discovered a hidden gem in the wedding planning world. We stumbled across a site that is a one-stop-shop for buying (and selling) everything related to weddings. Now, instead of going to one site to look at invitations and another site to find a DJ, and still somewhere else to find the perfect venue, Wedding Bliss Lane has aggregated all of this together into one, easy to use and extremely helpful online marketplace.
