Hi! I’m so excited to be a part of Weddingbee. I’ve been an avid reader since I discovered the site back in June or July and am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute.
My fiance and I are planning a wedding for May of next year in my hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. My parents live there and my mom has been the biggest help with wedding planning. We’re both very crafty and into DIY projects, and I hope to be able to help other brides out by posting instructions, ideas, and inspiration! Plus, we’re on a budget, so I love the challenge of creating high-end results from not-unlimited resources!
As for the wedding, we found the perfect venue — a historic mansion for the reception with lovely grounds for the ceremony. Our colors are cobalt blue and silver with accents in ivory and black, and I’ve been having a great time working with the subtle “star” theme we are using. I’ve got twinkle lights to decorate the reception area, we are doing all the stationery DIY with star shaped rubber stamps, and so many other little touches that I hope will create a magical, dreamlike environment for our guests!
Mr. Blueberry and I are both dessert fanatics, so instead of a sit-down dinner we’re having a dessert buffet with a wedding cake, groom’s cake, two chocolate fountains, cookies and pastries, candy, and fresh fruit. We’re also going to offer our favorite wine, and Boulevard beer–a Kansas City tradition!
I’m very detail-oriented, and more than a little bit of a perfectionist, so I hope that our wedding day will be as perfect as I’m envisioning. I’m so grateful that I’ve been given the opportunity to share my process here on Weddingbee, and hope I can help other brides as much as the current bloggers have helped me.
