 Wow! I haven’t filled you in on any of the wedding planning process yet. We are well underway with it all now, the venue is booked (we went for the wild card option), the Pinterest boards are blossoming and the invites are ready.

Brainstorming together and aligning our visions has been really special. Nick and I met working on a contemporary opera together, so it’s fun to apply that creative thinking and collaborative process to our wedding.

We decided to go back to the place where Nick proposed to make all of the initial important decisions. We set up camp in the amazing Mad Men styled library there. We ordered champagne, spread out our wedding magazines and got the Pinterest boards at the ready. I would recommend doing something like this if you are planning your own wedding. It turned the process into a really special moment that we will remember forever.

But I must admit… there was a pretty stressful situation that we came up-against later on down the line. Something that I obviously hadn’t scheduled into my wedmin planner,  drama free and full of love was more what I had in mind. For us the issue was thankfully not with family, guests or loved ones, but with a vendor that we hired. Nightmare.

One thing that we have learned from that particular experience is to work with positive people that you enjoy spending time with and that will make their contribution to your big day a pleasurable experience. Don’t be fooled by fancy websites and impressive presentation packages. Sometimes independent vendors with a bit of heart are the best. But we haven’t let that bump in the road spoil anything for us. It’s ultimately led us to better things.

Let me know if you have any tips or advice in the comments. Particularly on finding a wedding dress, that is the next step ahead of me. I am looking forward to sharing more of our wedding planning story with you. A post on the invitations is coming up soon, which I am so excited about!
