Our newest bride-to-be blogger reveals her secret planning weapon: A flip-a-coin app
A flip-a-coin app. (September 10, 2012)
We are a perfect match.
Andrew and I have our friends to thank for our introduction. There was a collision of home and college friends across multiple levels that I won’t even begin to explain -- love Smalltimore. I first noticed him when we were out at NcDevin's. He was pouring his heart and soul into a terrible rendition of Lisa Loeb’s “Stay.” He wasn’t even reading the words on the prompter. Swoon. There were a few more group outings, followed by a handful of dates, and all of a sudden, four years later, we are getting married! Details on the engagement to follow.
I am a little nervous about chronicling my successes and failures as a Baltimore bride-to-be. I am not the most creative or decisive person you will ever meet. I downloaded an app on my phone that is a virtual coin I can flip for the really tough wedding decisions. It is remarkable how often I use it. Andrew and I are seasoned wedding guests so we’ve picked up quite a few ideas along the way but I understand there is a very fine line between borrowing and stealing a friend’s brilliant and unique wedding idea. Reminder: Figure out how to be productive on Pinterest.
I am lucky to have the most loving and supportive family, friends and fiancé. They will be the ones who help tie ribbons around whatever things I decide need ribbons the morning of, and they are also the ones who will talk me off the ledge when I listen to the coin and chop off all of my hair the night before the big day. This is going to be fun!
