Another New Nearlywed

Hello everyone,

This is my blogging debut and I can't wait to share as much helpful information as possible with you throughout the duration of my wedding planning experience. After moving here from Atlanta a few weeks ago, I'm now exploring the D.C. area for the first time on a mission to create the event of our dreams.

My fiance and I met 2 years ago and just became engaged on July 17th. I can't believe it's already been almost two (amazing) months! Our relationship started out as a friendship that surprised us both by turning into a very deep love, and we can't wait to share the commitment of marriage. We plan on having around 75 guests and have chosen October 18, 2008 to exchange vows. As of today, that's 407 days of planning, which seemed like a lot until I realized how many details there are to coordinate!

That brings me to one o
f the first great pieces of advice I've received, which is to start an email account for any correspondence dealing with the wedding. It can even be a cute way to stay in touch with your vendors if you choose an address combining your names. Mine is to the effect of HisName_and_MyName_2008@domain.com. Then, share the password with your Maid of Honor, your fiance and someone else in your bridal party you trust with information that might be there, like finances and payments.

That way, if you're on 395 South, lost, and in need of directions (like I am constantly) or out and about without the phone number of a vendor, you can call someone on "team bride" to log in a get the information you need. It will also help this person stay in the loop so when the wedding day arrives they can serve as a successful point of contact.

I have so much more to share and look forward to doing so. Thanks for taking part in my experience!
