Chelsea’s Surprisingly Decisive Wedding Gown Search

I have read so many stories of many brides, Disney bride and not, who sincerely struggled with finding their dress. Knowing it was THE dress. I’m an extremely indecisive person. Ask my hubby and we have major problems when I cannot decide what to go out and eat. And most of my day is filled with me trying to decide what exactly it is I want to do.

Return from the Land of Happiness


It’s been two and a half weeks since our wedding. I thought I might have be more techie in regards to sharing my event before leaving, but I’ve learned that I’m just not that kind of person. I’m better with collecting all of my memories and then documenting them versus instant-sharing.

A New Wedding Update: History of the Bridal Shower


With my own impeding shower just around the corner (this Saturday, in fact, I am WAY too excited!), I thought I would share some history I learned from my mom about the bridal shower’s origins. At least this is one of many stories. When I looked it up to find the story to write out here, I found lots of different variations. So…I’ll tell you the one my mom told me.
