A base for brides


November 2015

It’s okay to get a little corky!


I’ve been to weddings and I know that a lot of times when I get to the wedding reception, I spend the first 10 minutes trying to find my seat by circling every table looking at the guest card. If you are looking for a rustic, vintage, classic or California style wedding this is perfect for you and your guests! Put this at the entrance of your reception and make sure to have clear number signs on your tables. The hardest part about making this project happen is finding someone to drink all that wine! No need to panic, stores such as Target, Amazon or even A.C. Moore usually have corks that you can buy in bulk for pretty cheap. Hot glue them all together, frame it and you have yourself a cork board. For some extra support, it helps to glue the corks in twos and stick sewing pins horizontally through them. Then glue them all to a surface.

If you fall a table short and still want the clever number sign incorporated in your project, a nice touch would be to add a bride and groom photo to the board. After all, that is the center of the occasion, right?

The engagement…

As a first post, I feel it would be fitting to start at the very beginning. Getting married is a journey after all, some longer than others, but anyone could tell you that it requires a lot of planning, a lot of to-dos and a lot of fun. Now I am no expert. Let’s be real. I got engaged October 5th, 2015 and I am only a few months in but the base of this blog is not to preach what to do when getting married but to one, blog my journey so I can remember it through all the stress of planning and to not let it blur my memories and two, to share my mistakes, my success and my ideas to all brides like me.

I am quite a young bride one could say. I am 21 years young and I am finishing off my college degree. If you know anything about me or my relationship though it would make complete sense that I am where I am today. I have been dating my fiance since I was sixteen years old and have had nothing but wonderful memories with this man of mine. We are two independent adults who want success, love and adventure. We travel and explore, we take risks when we’re doubted and we’re one hell of a good time. Since I was 19, we have “lived small” in a 350 square-foot house with a 65 pound, blind coonhound. We both work extremely hard but money has never seemed to stick around long. Just like everyone else, we have built big dreams on a little foundation.

In the two years of our engagement I will be graduating college, starting a career, traveling and planning a wedding. With a busy chapter ahead, I want to make sure that I can still be human and plan a wonderful day to solidify our relationship. With this all being said, I need to be ready to get thrifty, creative and motivated in order to have a successful outcome. Stay tuned for the journey of a lifetime…
