Then I was the MOH

November 2nd, 2010 by     


My sister is getting married on December 3rd. Shortly after she became engaged she asked if she should ask someone else to be her Maid of Honor. Since I’m planning my own wedding, I thought that would be a good idea, so she asked a friend.

As time progressed I found myself helping more with her wedding plans than I had expected and her maid of honor became more and more invisible.

The In-Laws

June 28th, 2010 by     


Although I don’t entirely agree with the saying, “When you marry the man, you marry the family” I think it’s really nice to “fit in” with my fiancé’s family.

I happened to have two well placed days off that allowed me to help Lilac Dude’s mom prepare for and run a garage/estate sale. I spent those mornings and afternoons with Lilac Dude’s mom and 15-year-old brother, while Lilac Dude was at work.

What was awesome to me was that we are comfortable enough to joke around even to the extent of me putting a 50 cent price tag on my future mother-in-law’s forehead.

Two Brides

March 4th, 2010 by     


My dude proposed on September 18, 2009 and we launched into wedding planning and immediately set our date for May 28, 2011. My big sister’s boyfriend surprised her by proposing on her 24th birthday, January 9, 2010. After a short period of worrying about having 2 weddings in one year, they decided to be married in December of 2010 roughly six months before us.
