Well… after going on a bit of a random hiatus from blogging (my profuse apologies to my avid readers), I am back!
And there is no better time to make my triumphant return than the first day of April—which means spring is on its way and that wedding season is JUST around the corner.
I originally started this blog as a bride-to-be myself, where I intended to include readers in my journey of all things wedding up until our big day. Unfortunately though, in the end, we chose to have our wedding almost 2 years after our engagement date—so there hasn’t been a whole lot of planning going on.
Our long engagement has been a few things— and all mostly positive. It has been great to enjoy our time as fiancés, not be stressed about planning a wedding, and more so just enjoying this stage in our lives. However, it has also been a little tough— I know Dillon and I are both tired of using the “my fiancé” line, we have both heard the “any wedding plans yet?” line pretty much every time we see anyone; and I think the most frustrating thing of all is that we don’t have any plans yet.
Since the beginning we have had our hearts set on one particular Ottawa venue—but we have had to wait patiently to hear back on whether or not they will be able to accommodate us. Fingers crossed we hear back shortly and can FINALLY start planning our festivities and then I can have some juicy things to write about on the ol’ blog!
Anyways, I cannot wait to share my direct experiences with you and provide helpful planning tips along the way! I’m super excited to say that I will be going dress shopping at the Monique Lhuillier Trunk Show this weekend in Montreal at the amazing bridal shop, White Montreal, and I can’t wait to share my experiences! Thanks so much for sharing in this journey with me– I look very forward to the upcoming year!! Let the planning begin 🙂
Until next time…
