***MSDL: SIGNING OFF!!!***
And just like that, my time has come! ;-)
I'm so sorry that I haven't been around much the last two weeks, but it has gotten pretty hectic. You have all been on my mind and in my heart as I finish up the last details that only a PW bride attempts to pull off!
The girl who first posted THIS could not have possibly imagined the joy of writing this post. Thank you ALL for your ideas, inspiration, laughs, tears, hugs, good wishes, constructive feedback and everything in between. Everything that is great about my wedding will be because of PW. I gained more than ideas here. I got the confidence to do things my own way, and reassurance that it would all turn out great. I was telling someone just this morning that the best thing about PW is that you can come here with nothing more than a vision, and end up with a wedding that is pretty darn close to it. This place makes it HAPPEN. Thank you, Universe -- and Google -- for leading me here during a search for "DIY centerpieces."
To the newbies or girls with "far away" wedding dates, who are reading this thinking they will never be here, YOU WILL. Before you know it, you will be sitting in front of your computer writing your sign-off post, wondering what happened to your engagement! So jump into PW with both feet, and enjoy the heck out of it :-)
I have to quote one of my favorite lines from Sex & The City, because I think of it often as it relates to you girls: "What if...what if I had never met you?" Wedding planning would never have been the same. I have felt like a *bride* these last 15 months, and it's a wonderful feeling that I wish upon every engaged woman. You ladies have to be some of the most loving people on Earth, and I feel grateful to have you in my little corner of the world. This place -- and you all -- have changed my life :-)
I will be thinking of you girls during countless moments at my wedding. And you all know I'll be thinking of you when I wake up the morning after my wedding and tell my new DH: "I CAN'T WAIT TO WRITE MY RECAP!"
So...don't mind me if I'm not on the boards much this weekend. I'll be getting married!!! I can't wait to come back as a MRS! :-))))
