It occurs to me that I have never mentioned the amazing community of girls I met throughout my wedding planning process and how much of a support system they were (and still are) to me. Back when I started planning, I downloaded just about every Wedding Planner and Organizer app on the planet. I went through them within the week and kept only a major few. Of course, you need a countdown app, a mobile version of your Wedding Website app (if there is one), a guest list app, an app leading to your registries, and one very important and helpful app, the Bridal 911, if you will, a community forum app for brides-to-be.
Now I used this app for EVERYTHING. From which line sounded better on my invitations, to me and my fiancee having a huge fight and I needed some words of wisdom. I put my faith and trust into a group of strangers, and it worked out so well. Of course, there are some ladies out there who are only out there to cause some trouble and to meddle into others problems with ill intentions. BUT if you can seed out those ladies, you can find other great ones. There was a small, but solid, group of ladies that continually showed me their support, including telling me in the nicest way possible to leave Sunflower Dude alone and stop over reacting.
I began planning my wedding almost two years ago now, and I am still in touch with some of these lovely ladies. In fact, we are quite the bonded group from Facebook to Instagram. I finally have such a great support system of girls around the globe. I hope to one day meet these ladies and thank them properly.
I advise you ladies to reach out for help when you need it, there may just be a helping hand waiting for you on the other side of the globe through that little screen on your phone.
