So, anyone sporting a new sparkle on a very important finger? Will you be "ringing" in the New Year with wedding planning?  (I know So cheesy) My Friday Frames ramblings consist of whatever pops in my head that week, could be personal, could be inspirational, could be me sharing something or it could be wedding planning tips. If you scroll through my past posts you will find ideas on my favorite kind of bride, wedding timelines, great venues, etc... Lots of good info if you have time to curl up with a cup of coffee and scroll. 

So if you are staring at your finger this season in disbelief this is "Really happening" you should totally be soaking up this moment. I did a post recently on what to do after the ring and my advice was to BREATHE. Let things simmer. Here's a fun little fact, I had 202 wedding inquiries come to my inbox in 2014 and I have booked 16 weddings. So, there are a lot of brides out there, many with the same date. So lower stress by planning far in advance and researching vendors you want to work with, maybe check their dates against your venue before booking either to be sure your on the same page. Don't rush it. Don't go get a dress, pick your wedding party and your venue all within a week. Don't put the cart before the horse girls.  There's some tips for the non-traditional type bride trying to plan with minimal stress on there too. 

My calendar is as full as I would like it to be in 2015, with enough wiggle room for maybe one more fabulous couple (is that you? a friend of yours? a family member?)  PINCH.ME. Because I am still in shock how this has all come about in the last 2 years. Things have really changed for the better and with 2016 inquiries dropping in, I have to really sit back and thank my lucky stars for this incredible journey and where it's continuing to lead me. I can't wait to see what's in store.
