Hostess Spotlight: Dreaday
My name is Andrea (or Drea...whichever you prefer!). It is such an honor to be a hostess here on PW!!
I have been a PW member since December of 2009, but I didn't get active on the boards until January.
My wedding date was August 14, 2010
My wedding style/theme was vintage/romantic with shades of blue, purple, and green
Right now, I am working onOrdering prints of my professional pictures, selecting images for albums, organizing the room that once held all of my wedding paraphenalia, and enjoying being married! I am also planning on doing a Trash the Dress session sometime in the next six months. I can't wait to go dress shopping again!
My favorite thing about PW is the incredible diversity represented here. PW is home to women (and men) from all over the world; people from different cultural and economic backgrounds--and we all SUPPORT each other during what is sometimes a very difficult and stressful time of our lives. While everyone here comes from a different life perspective, I love that PW is such a POSITIVE place where everyone can share their beautiful dresses, fun ideas, great bargains, unique inspirations (I could go on and on) without feeling judged.
My best PW skill is hmmmmmm...that's a tough one! :) I like to think that I help to keep PW a positive and happy place. I hope that each day, I can put a smile on at least one person's face!
Some PW groups that I love are"Wifeys in the Kitchen", "Our First Home", "Project Wedding Slim Down" and "Do It Yourself Weddings". Also check out group listings to see if there is a group for your particular state or region--I love the "Colorado Brides" group!
One PW tip that I have for newbies is get out there and post! Don't be shy! We love to see new faces, discover new inspiration, and celebrate new (or not so new) engagements! There is nothing better than seeing a new face on the boards. If you make a post and didn't feel like it got as much attention as you would like, just bump it up! Also, as I have said a million times in this post, PW is a place for positivity and encouragement...feel free to hand it out--we all know it feels great to receive a nice compliment, a sweet bio comment, or an out-of-the-blue toast, so pass it on!
Cheers and happy planning to all!
