I Was a Vancity Bride… Now What?

I love weddings.  Even before I got engaged all I could think about was getting married and having a wedding.  When my husband proposed to me, it was like a beast was unleashed.  I started my wedding research as soon as we got home the night he proposed. This was close to 2AM, he thought I was crazy!  I perused many websites, read a pile of magazines, and was (and still currently) very active at wedding discussion forums.  It was definitely my passion.  Nine months later, all the planning came to fruition and we had a beautiful, intimate wedding near Jericho Beach with our closest family and friends.  It was the best day of my life and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.  It was perfect.

Time flew by fast and now what do I do?  I have nothing to plan and I still have wedding on the brain.  My husband has always told me to pick up a hobby, and after thinking about it for a while, a thought came to me on one of my commutes to work.  I would write a blog geared towards Metro Vancouver brides looking to have a beautiful wedding, without breaking the bank.  This blog will focus on my own wedding advice, unique ideas, feature vendors, and of course, deals and great finds because we all know that weddings can put a huge dent in your savings account.

I will be posting new entries as often as I can so I hope you will find my site useful in your planning.  Please send me any questions or comments and if you have an amazing money-saving idea or know of an outstanding vendor, please send the info my way so they may be featured.

Happy planning!
