Now that the euphoria of the *surprise* proposal has leveled off a little and reality is coming back, where do you start? Well, if you're an A-type personality like I am, you get to work! Like many brides, when I became engaged, I felt invincible and just knew that planning my own wedding would be easy. Who else knows what I want better than me?

My Experience

Planning my own wedding was one of the most exciting and stressful endeavors I had taken on up until that point in my life. Seems there was so much to do. I had to figure out what my fiancé and I could afford to spend, who should be in the wedding & walk this road with us, whom would get the coveted invite, what we wanted the day to look like, where to have our wedding and what day, just to name a few! For certain women, like myself, weddings are just another reflection of whom we are as people. These special days reflect not only your personal style but probably the dream you've had since a you were a young girl. It's a surprise to no one that this day just *has* to be no less than romantic & a night to remember for all!

Weddings Cost How Much?!?

As soon as you start planning, you realize weddings cost a fortune. So to keep costs down and still have what you desire, you decide to plan the whole event on your own. You're fully capable, right? Of course you are! Well, the one thing that many working brides don't consider when making this type of decision, is how TIME intensive it will be. As capable as one may be, there are only 24 hours in a day where one must also eat, sleep and earn a living. Oh, and let's not forget exercise! We have to fit ourselves into that perfect DRESS because we certainly have to be a showstopper when floating down the aisle! As you can see, this is just a glimpse of all that goes into planning the perfect wedding day. While even the most A-type personality can pull off this magic trick, it will take a lot of effort, maybe even sneaking in some planning on *gasp* company time. You could risk being penalized by your employer for using company time & resources. Yikes! Why would one want to add extra pressure to themselves during this special once in a lifetime event?
