Ok, my mind is fried, baked, broiled, cooked… all of the above! I’ve been working on an ebook about our family’s backyard wedding experience and intend to have it published next month, or sooner if possible.
I’ve also been taking two internet classes, while trying to keep up with my normal duties, including homeschooling our 10 and 12 year olds. I have just come to the conclusion that I have taken on to much.
To much to do and not enough time to do it in. I’ll be done with one class the end of the month and then hopefully some creative juices will start to flow again. I want to do some interviews with individuals and families who have been involved with backyard weddings or outdoor weddings.
I would also like to create categories on each aspect of the wedding, things that will help the DIY person keep the cost of the wedding down. I’d like the end result to be the creation of project plans or craft patterns you can use when planning your own backyard wedding.
Also, I’d like to do some wedding related surveys (what have you seen that worked / didn’t work) as well as have some contests (ask my readers to provide ideas and the best one wins a prize). Maybe have a specific day of the week for brides/grooms/moms/dads to submit questions so my readers and I can provide some answers.
As of right now though, I need to concentrate on the urgent. I’m not sure I can keep up with my expectation of one new blog post everyday, so I may have to drop back to a few through-out the week. So check in from time to time and please feel free to post your comments.
My goal is to bring creative low cost wedding ideas to the people visiting my blog site; a wedding doesn’t have to destroy your budget if you work hard at stretching your dollars. I know what it feels like when your daughter comes home and says she’s going to get married… and all you can think about is, “How are we going to be able to pay for a wedding?”
It’s so easy to get discouraged right from the beginning. Considering the expenses, the hassel of planning and coordination, and trying to please family and friends. There are so many aspects to a wedding. I think that’s why some couples choose to live together and not have a wedding – its just so much easier and cheaper in the long run.
So…my goal is to find great ways to do things inexpensively, and in the process, be able to provide some encouragement. I will share my experiances and I hope that you will share your experiences too. I know a low cost wedding can be done. And it can be beautiful and fun; actually, it should be beautiful and fun. Do you have idea’s you can share? Sure you do!
