I am SO excited to be chosen as a blogger for Weddingbee! This site has been invaluable to me throughout the wedding planning process. I’ve been lurking the boards for quite some time for advice on everything from invitation wording to bridal undergarments. I’ve always had a passion for writing, so I recently decided to start blogging about my wedding as a creative outlet, hobby, and “time capsule” (to have a record in the future of when my life was consumed with wedding planning).
I shared the blog with a few friends and after receiving really positive and enthusiastic feedback, mustered the courage to submit my application to become a blogger for the hive. After applying, I obsessively checked my inbox the past few weeks waiting to hear back and tried to stay positive (even though the 5% acceptance rate amongst a fierce pool of applicants definitely prepared me for a rejection).
So earlier this week when I received an email from Mrs. Penguin, I was extremely nervous (let’s just say I’m the not best when it comes to handling rejection). However, once I opened the email and saw the words “…think you’d be a great addition to the Weddingbee team” I screamed, did a cartwheel, and called my mom. I am so excited to be part of this community with so many clever and interesting brides-to-be and can’t wait to share my story with you all!
Without further ado, introducing…the Mongooses!!
