Hello My Petals!
Oh my it’s been an awfully long time and we have some catching up to do. I had to take a couple of months off to concentrate on my small business and my family. Since I’ve started blogging a lot has changed. A few years ago it was just my husband and I and now my With Love & Petals Family has grown from a family of 2 to a family of 4 and I couldn’t be any happier. These three have changed my life completely and I thank everyday for them.
Speaking of a growing family, my baby brother got married in Baguio in the Philippines and I have a new sister! Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there for their special day because I was 8 .5 months pregnant, but I was there in spirit and forced my family to facetime me when they could :P. Their wedding was beautiful! Just look at this picture. It must have been even more beautiful in person. I still cannot believe that my not so little brother is married. Where did the time go?
Now for my sisters wedding. Oh how I love weddings! My sister is getting married with her long time boyfriend, long time fiance (FINALLY). The dates are up in the air but it’s happening this year. It could be in 6 months or the end of the year. They both travel for work and it’s difficult to find time when they’re not traveling.
Either way, I’m MOH and I have my work cut out for me. They’re shooting to get married at The Scripps Seaside Forum here in San Diego–a beautiful venue, but my focus is the 6 month timeline. I did some research online and yes, the timeline is aggressive, but as the timeline starts to spark out, it’s in line with your ideal one year engagement and that’s one thing you cannot change. The most difficult thing about planning a 6 month wedding I would have to say are the top three things that should be on every brides list. The wedding budget, finding a venue that can work with such a quick timeline and the same goes for the photographers, videographers and DJ. With how the wedding market works, it would be difficult to have all of those things fall in your favor, BUT IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE (my brother did it and their wedding turned out beautiful) so if you have the time, I would jump at the chance and be aggressive.
There are a lot of 6 month wedding timelines out there and out of all of them I love the one planned by aisleperfect
I like it because it’s easy to follow and it covers all of the bases and more.
