Did you follow our wedding adventures?
After a long year of planning and filming our Behind the Veil series with Rolfs Salon and Arizona Weddings Magazine, I was asked to write an essay on wedding planning and newlywed life. Broad much? Oh yeah.
When I sat down to think about the articles I normally write for wedding magazines, I realized that as a bride, I sometimes just wanted to hear a few truths, stories from real brides.
Yes, there’s a checklist and I should have a planning book and yada yada. But how do real brides feel? What really happens? Any tips I can actually use that don’t include printing out a checksheet? Yes.
You can read about all that and more in our wedding featured in the 2013-2014 issue of Arizona Weddings Magazine. My story, 8 Truths About Being an Arizona Bride, is full of tips for ANY bride and a few extra tidbits just for desert brides, too. Things like how you’ll probably get sick of wedding planing (gasp! Yes, this totally happens). Or how you might actually miss your wedding day.
It’s not your typical tale from a bridal expert or writer, just good old fashioned advice from one bride to another.
You can get the magazine at Target, Barnes and Noble, your local pharmacy or read the story online here. I hope you enjoy!
