Good things come to those who wait!!!

So much has happened in the past 7 days I don't even know where to begin! For starters, I finally got a new job!! I'm so excited by this amazing opportunity and for this next step in my life!

Secondly, I am now a featured blogger for for the next few months!
Lastly, I am also now a "Long Island Wedding Examiner" for I can write about basically anything I want that pertain to weddings on Long Island. My first article published yesterday!
If anyone has any suggestions for topics to write about for future articles, please send them my way!!

Now, onto my post. This past weekend I went home and tried on my wedding dress!! The seamstress only pinned it for now to show where I'll need alterations. However, she isn't going to actually make alterations until January or February because, like every bride, I hope to lose some weight between now and then. It was so great to try on "MY" dress, and be reminded of why I picked it in the first place. I also tried on some veils and think I know what veil I want to purchase. It's very simple and you can still see the back through it (which is my absolute favorite part of the dress. Would it be weird to walk down the aisle backwards??) Here's a little dress "teaser" if you will:
My mom also started the ball rolling on looking for her dress for the wedding. We got some great ideas of what works on her and what color she thinks she's going to wear; purple or lavender. After dress shopping and lunch, my mom and I hashed out a rough plan on our bridesmaid gift project. I can't reveal what it is we worked on, but I will say that we played around with colored pencils...and it was fun.
The rest of the weekend was taken up by an 11 mile bike ride with dad, attending a rodeo with sister, and a musical at Muhlenberg College with Grandma and I was quite the busy bee! Even so, I do feel like this was a successful wedding weekend, and was the perfect way to kick off what turned into my equally amazing week!

Good things DO comes to those who wait...

Oh please, I think if YOU, wedding blogger extraordinaire, walk down the aisle backwards it could become the next big thing ;)

Okay, two things jumped right out at me. First, thank you for not posting any pics of me in the gowns I tried on. Second, you didn't even mention my debut as Marigold. Wasn't that the real highlight of the weekend? JKJK.

It really was a fantastic and productive weekend.

I do think the picture of our artistic endeavor might be too big of a clue though. Do you think they'll guess that they're getting the Big Box of 64 from Crayola? Ooops!!

Well, here's something I thought I'd never say, but I'm so proud that my daughter is a Knottie Bride!
