Miss Glen Echo, Bridal Hoarder

I am not as bad as Lindsey Lohan or the folks you see on Hoarders, but the closer and closer this wedding gets, I am starting to relate to the feeling of being surrounded by one's own stuff.

Its not so much a problem that I don't like to throw things away, but over the 18 months we have been engaged, all of the on-line deals and "must have" purchases have definitely began to accumulate.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the evidence, uncensored...

(that pink bag in the back is my first gown, packaged and ready to be sold very soon)

Packed away, within the abyss that is our closet, is my little brother's grooms attendant suit. Here is a sneak preview of what the men in our wedding will be wearing. I love the combo of the gray and purple. I wish I could have convinced Mr. Glen Echo to have the guys do purple shirts for a monochromatic look...but alas...he vetoed it :(
Are any of you ladies swimming in your own "stuff"?

I totally relate! We live in a tiny apartment and it's already jam-packed. I think we're going to have the gifts sent to his parents' house and we'll have to hold on to most of them until we buy a house or move into a bigger space. Getting married really does coincide with accumulating a lot of stuff!!

My future hubby doesn't think weddings need anything but a table and some flowers in the middle. I have been picking up special cards for my attendants and stuff to put little gift packages together. I also collect vases and such for decoration. I was sent a big Tiffany box and that will be a card box. I hide it all in my closet. I am sure he thinks I am hoarding junk.

It gets worse ladies...trust me. We also have our gifts going to his parents, but for some reason a few of our registries will revert back to our address...so we are also getting gifts mixed in this mess.
