I’m Alicia, I was married August 21st 2016 to the man of my dreams. We had a beautiful wedding that was everything I could have imagined but the process was stressful and made me realize that all of the bridal sites really sugar coat the truth about wedding planning.
Bridal magazines made it sound like a dream, which was even more upsetting when I was struggling to keep myself together. During the process I talked with other brides who shared similar experiences and I realized someone has to tell the brides-to-be how this really goes.
I wrote my blog partly to provide wedding planning advice and in part to share my experience so that other brides would realize that it is totally normal that planning your wedding does not always feel as glamorous as you expected.
I have been involved in quite a few weddings; I have been a maid of honor, a bridesmaid, a guest, and the bride. No matter what my role in the wedding, I always found myself running around taking care of errands or helping plan the event. That is my personality and I am always happy to help. I have seen what works, what doesn’t and how to make the process a whole lot smoother.
