Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Seeing as how it is crunch time and am hours away from being in a single digit countdown to my wedding I have some advice to future brides:

1. HIRE A PLANNER!!!!! If you are in your planning process and you see that your DIY list is growing and growing. Save yourself the head ache and hire a professional to help or enlist your Martha Stewart wanna be friend to do it.
2. When looking at dresses try everything on. And try to go someplace that is going to have dresses in your size. I am a voluptuous girl and do not fit in the size 4 and 6's they have in the upscale boutiques so I couldn't even get an idea of what silhouette I looked good in. Don't be afraid to try something new. What you wanted may not work and what you were totally against my take your breath away.
3. DO NOT LET YOUR SOON TO BE HUSBAND RELY ON THE AGE OLD GROOM TESTAMENT THAT ALL HE HAS TO DO IS SHOW UP. Make them help you, or you will resent them for being so chilax and you are about to collapse from exhaustion and stress.
4. No matter how well you get along with your FMIL this is where the power struggle will begin. You the soon to be wife, and her the mother that is feeling like she has been replaced and unloved.
5. Your body is going to attack its self, in ways you never thought. i.e. having 2 periods a month, loosing so much hair you are just waiting to wake up in the morning to bald spots, or having such muscle tightness in your shoulders, because that is where you hold your tension, you can't move your left arm above your head.
6. That no matter how bad it gets, on your wedding day all the stress, the fighting, the tears will not have been in vain because everything will fall in to place and nothing can stress you out because you are in your bride bliss bubble where everything will work itself out and nothing can touch you in that white dress and veil because you are an invincible woman. <--- I don't have first hand experience with this yet, but from what I am told this is what you feel like.
