DH and I have been together 10 years now...holy crap! Married for nearly two and loving every second of time I spend with this wonderful man. PW was a lifesaver for my wedding and I just can't bring myself to leave! I just adore all the amazing women I meet and the opportunity to see so many creative, beautiful weddings is just awesome!

Some PW traditions :)

Anyone who has been on the boards for any length of time will see some of these, and it's so darn exciting when it's your turn!!

The Sign-Off

I posted this on 9/8/2011...3 days before the BIG Day.

Wow...I can't believe it's really here! We got engaged on Christmas Day 2008 and I don't think I really believed I was getting married until today when I was picking up FI's tux and getting my nails done! Those two things have been on the schedule for some time but to actually be doing them and telling people "I'm getting married on Saturday!" ... it's surreal.


When I started the planning journey, I had no clue what I really wanted or where to start. I found PW through a Google search for Stargazer lillies and it was the one of the most important discoveries I think I will ever make!! I would never have dared to even dream about DIYing anything before, let alone something as important as my invites. But I read through the countless stories of you lovely ladies and it gave me courage. I not only did the invites and STDs from scratch, I also did the favors and the ceremony decor. And it will all be beautiful...thanks to all of you!! Not only that, PW has given me so many ideas and shown me ways to think about things that never would have come to me without this community. Colorful shoes to go with my dress, or the wonder that is Etsy are just a few of the neat things I've found throug this site. And I never would have used the term 'BM' with such fondness before either!!


I have learned so much from so many of you, not just about wedding stuff but about relationships, family, friendship and even make-up and fashion! No matter what type of question I had, or what crazy issue I needed to vent about...there was someone there to listen and offer advice or even just a hug. That truly made a difference in my life, showing me that there are lots of good people out there and it made me feel like I mattered. PW has done wonders for my confidence in myself and in my abilities. I have given just as much advice as I have received, and I love the release that gives you to feel like you might have made a difference to someone.


My wedding day will be over after Saturday but my time on PW is just beginning! I am already getting excited to post a recap and see what everyone thinks :) From the bottom of my heart I thank all of you for your helpfulness, your willingness to listen and for your sincerity. Most of all for your awesomeness! PW rocks!! See you on the Mrs-side!
