Name Change

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as sweet. – Juliet Before Alex placed a ring on my finger I hadn’t given much thought to assuming my his last name.  Alex and I aren’t the most traditional couple so those around me assumed I would keepContinue reading “Name Change”

The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect

Although my day as a bride has come and gone, I want to share one more instalment of The Bride’s Diary. One more blog post to document the three regrets I have from the BIG DAY. I wish I hadn’t asked the seamstress to make my dress as tight as humanly possible. As mentioned in my previous post, itContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect”

The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT

We did it! We travelled a 1.5 year-long road jumping over arguments, dodging (and even embracing) tears, and pausing at crossroads until we reached destination “I DO”. November 11, 2016 was exactly how I hoped it would be; calm, relaxing, and fun. Since we had the ceremony and reception in the same location (The Hazleton Manor)Continue reading “The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT”

The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO

It’s safe to say that I’ve been rather distracted lately.

Although I’ve had fun at allContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – The Bridal Shower”

The Bride’s Diary – Marriage Fears

You can learn from most failures and move on, and she is used to those kinds of failures. One thing that she doesn’t want to fail at isContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – Marriage Fears”

The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go

With four months until the big day I’m trying to get the shower organized, figure out which balances are due and when, confirming flowers and decor, sending out invitations, and ensuring my wedding dress will fit after the alterations are complete. Admittedly all of this is stressing me out. I’m unsure if it is theContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 4 months to go”

Legitimate Wedding Day Fears 

On My Pen, My Voice I had a series called The Bride’s Diary – the Road to I Do which I enjoyed writing so much that I thought I’d transfer it over here.  With less than 6 months until the big day, shit is getting real. The lists I had so much time to cross things offContinue reading “Legitimate Wedding Day Fears “
