My name is Lala short for La'Artatnetta (long story to go with a long name LOL)!
I have been a PW member since October of 2009 although I lurked for about two months before hand. I can't believe that it's closing in on a year that I've been here.
My wedding date is November 11, 2011, so apparently I'll be here for another year until I can enjoy the perks of the countdown until matrimony. I'm really excited that it's finally closing in on 365. It honestly feels like forever!
My wedding style/theme is an Urban Garden of Eden mixed with gorgeous french elements as an ode to my mom's side of the family. I really want to bring Versailles to Houston.
Right now, I am working on invitations!!! I'm working with Sarah Goff (PW'er goingtobegoff) and I know that the finished product will be absolutely fabulous!
My favorite thing about PW is the fact that so many brides, from so many different corners of the world can come together and bond over something so special. It's really amazing to see. Honestly, I cannot express how many people have offered to come to Houston to help me on my big day. There are girls that I would have never met but fortunately we all stumbled across PW and I can honestly say that they will be friends forever. I love them dearly!
My best PW skill is finding inspiration boards. If you need one then PM me or create a thread on the main forum and I'm all over it. I save them even if they don't pertain to my wedding. It's really fun to search for them... ah... I love it sooo much!
Some PW groups that I love are my very own Southern Brides group for all of Southern Belles, The Glamourous brides, African American Brides, and Trying to Conceive. We plan on making babies right away! Hahaha...
One PW tip that I have for newbies is to use the word BUMP! If no one has responded to your post then go in there and BUMP it... four little words that can really change your outlook. The main forum turns over quickly so some threads get easily moved to the second and third page often times without getting a single response. Track down your threads if you need help!!! It's really the only way that we know that you need it. And don't hesitate to PM me if you need something, I'm always and I do mean always here!
