    I dont think I really ever had wedding planning mojo... I get excited here and there, but I'm just so mad at myself for not eloping!  LOL  Call it the easy way out, but truly, I never pictured my wedding as a little girl... and now that I've been a bridesmaid in a few weddings & Im about to get married myself, I see how its soooo incredibly easy to lose sight of whats really truly important about your wedding day:  just you and your man.  When I think about how I will be spending the rest of my life with my man, best friend, and partner... thats the only mojo I need to continue on until our day comes.

      THE MOJO IS BACK!!!!!!

      I finally found it!  Although it took changing our destination & pushing our date ahead...It's back none the less.  As I accomplished many things earlier (my dress, my bridesmaids dresses, my electronic std/invites) I still have my DIY projects to start.  But to keep myself from losing the WP MOJO again, I dont plan on starting any DIY until after the holidays.  Our wedding will be 6 months from the start of the New Year so that should give us plenty of time.

       

      Thanks for the words of encouragement!!!


      So Amazing......July 4, 2012!!!!!!

          anudrm....

           

          that is actually a great idea.  Problem is....all of the ladies here are so talented.  I get new ideas every day.....and I change my mind every other day.  I am anxious to get started though.  I have found that catching the sales after a holiday (like Easter...) I find awesome trinkety (I like that word) things that I can use.  I may start stalking through Michaels & Joannes soon though.  Thanks for the suggestion!

            Yes I suffered from that also, it's called Got-a DIY-list-that-continues-to-grow-everyday-I-log-into-BDW....the cure, well hell, idk, LOL.  I had to just buckle down and do it!!! It helps that there are a lot of girls on the site that speaks wedding talk.  Before I do anything in bulk, I make one (of whatever) take a picture and pass it around.  Take suggestions and run with them all.  I suggest you do at least a first one, it will allow your self sometime to sit on some projects and see if you are still in love with it 1 month, 2 months, 4 months. Rather doing something and then decide you don't care for it, then you are out of time to change it.

             

            As for Easter, thank goodness my colors are autumn/Halloween, GREAT selections - on sale, LOL

              Great colors!  Mine are turquoise, yellow & fuchsia (recently added). This past Easter, I was fortunate enough to find these awesome little yellow pails at Target .27!!!  I was so excited I bought 40 of them.  It was an after Easter sale and I went crazy.  I also bought some card stock for really cheap in the same colors.  Now that my wedding has been pushed forward, I have another Easter to stalk Target for great stuff!

                .27, yeah I would have managed to justify purchasing 40 of them also, I don't know how we as women do it.  Yet we can justify buying way too much of cheap things!
